What Are You Giving to Your Valentine?

February 12, 2016

Chocolates? Those silky pajamas they sell on TV? A big teddy bear?  Dinner and dancing? They all sound great, don’t they? But not for me. I want to give her something really special. I want to give her safety.


So, I’m starting with a full inspection of her car. She’s pretty good about regular car check-ups, but there’s no harm in getting the once over even between check-ups.


So, here’s what I suggest for you, too…


Bring her car to a trusted mechanic and tell him, or her, to inspect the car from top to bottom.


Include oil change and essential maintenance, tires, alignments, brakes, battery, belts and hoses, wiper blades, lamps and bulbs, alternators and electrical systems, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, cooling system, and air conditioning system. Also check the steering and suspension.


That was the safety part. You’re not done yet…


Bring the car to a professional to clean and detail the car – inside and out!


Now, the “pièce de résistance,” as they say in France…

Go pick up her favorite flowers, a box of chocolates and a gift certificate to her favorite spa or massage center. Her car got pampered and so will she!


Ah, and don’t forget dinner for two at her favorite restaurant. Let her drive!
