Got my battery replaced

My car battery had reached the end of its life so I went to the shop on Sat to have it replaced. When I got back in my car afterwards I realized that all my radio pre-sets were gone of course. That is not a big deal because I only listen to one station on the radio anyway.

Later, my wife was in my car and I saw her look at the clock. I told her not to bother checking it because I had not reset it since having the battery changed. She looked at it anyway though and told me the time was correct. As it turns out, they changed by battery at exactly 12:00 in the afternoon. I thought that was so cool.

LOL! Read any good books lately? I'm starting "Pirate Latitudes," by the late Micheal Crichton.

I'm looking for a new book at WalMart today. What kind of books is the trilogy Stainless Steel? By whom?

I didn't know Michael Chrichton died. Rats. I really enjoy him. :(
