The eyes are the mirror of the soul

Thanks to Sara and a very belated thank you to Trixie for giving me more eyes. I think this count is a little off now, but it's close. Total eyes for project: 18,755

The car just reached 100,000 miles. No wonder it needed a new battery.

You need a new battery, hon!

The car wouldn’t start again last night. This time it died at a post-work trip to Sonic at 10:30 p.m. Another tow truck and another trip to Groovy Automotive. It’s only a dead battery, so the car will be back on the road in no time. Here a picture taken at 7 a.m. of the car’s favorite waiting spot.

Back to work

I got both the driver’s and passenger’s side mirrors covered with eyes before the sky got cloudy and the wind picked up. I used the eyes that Kendra, Link, Maury and Todd gave me to complete this part of the car.

You can see the huge difference in the color of the eyes that have been on the car for a few months and the new ones. I like the “antique” look better in general, but the shinny white eyes give me a sense of satisfaction.

It never actually rained and the sky clear up, so I went out for a drive.
