That's disgusting. Who lets their little kid eat ice cream for breakie? My daughter is 8 and it there's no way I'd let her eat ice cream for breakie. Guess that's what you get for letting kids eat what THEY think is good for them. LOL
Lol no one "let" them have it... they are both grounded now. And tomorrow after school they are cleaning my entire truck. Also I'm not responsible for breakfast... when I show up to take them to school they are fed and dressed. My job is delivery only.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I'm curious...if it was a defective Skittle, did they replace it with a new one, or maybe a rebuilt Skittle. When there defective they can skdittle and skadattle all over the place and make a racket.
Also, under the replacement, did they charge you for a single Skittle, or a whole bag? If you got a whole bag, maybe you could share your extra Skittles with those of us who might be facing a Skittle situation in the near future.

What color Skittle?

Put in a Pioneer head unit. I wanted the BT audio and phone capability. The reverse camera is a plus too. I still have to mount it and run the wires which is why the unit is not fully snapped into place yet.

Absolutely nothing to either of them. Presumably the one is still sitting in the lot at work with tires chalked and battery disconnected. The other is sitting at home. It looks like the girlfriend may have put gas in it.

It's interesting to observe the behaviour of yellow jackets. You would think being moved around would be catastrophic for them. It doesn't appear to bother them much The first day they flew out from under the passenger side of the front bumper and flew around in circles above the truck as if they were just trying to figure out what happened. Now they just fly out to the bushes alongside the driveway to forage on the lantana shrubs, or do whatever yellow jackets do. It's as if they think they haven't gone anywhere and the landscaping around them has been changed. They aren't bothering me, so I may leave the nest in there and take them for a road trip high up in the mountains where it getting a little cold at night just to mess with them and make them think we are having an early winter this year, then bring them back to Sacramento where it is warm. Then maybe to the foggy coast. They'll have psychiatric problems by the time I'm finished with them.

Do your best to be your best.
Yellow jackets can be nasty devils. They can swarm and gang up on you making you wish you were never born.

My credo
If it's not broken Don't Fix It!
I installed the front licence plate bracket that had been missing since I bought the truck. The kid that owned the truck before I got it hit a sand pile which broke the original plate holder and caused the bumper to hang low at the fenders, but brackets will come later. I think it cleans up the front a lot now the plate is raised and centered. Now to repaint the valance from where the tow truck operator couldn't keep his line low enough to pull the truck up onto the deck from the front. The chains came up crushing the valance in, almost ripping my plate off and popping out the lens of my, just installed 10 days before, fog lights. This happening was the push to get the plate holder so I wouldn't loose the darn thing.

These ones aren't aggressive. They may actually be paper wasps.

They are probably not yellow jackets. Yellow jackets "usually" build their nests in the ground, at least around here anyway. I'd guess guinea wasp. They look pretty similar. I'm not sure what varieties are indigenous to your area though.
