Not quite fall nor winter
December. The last month of the year. The beginning of winter. We are sure to get some snow this year. We have been busy. For some reason, this year just seems like we are going to have a real winter, with snow. We have been making sure vehicles are ready for this coming freeze. We apply silicone lubricant to the door gaskets to help prevent the doors from freezing shut. We also make sure the washer fluid is the proper mix for this time of year. We all have been lucky these past few years, this year, might be the deal breaker. Make sure your car is ready. Always keep your fuel level either full or 3/4 tank. You never know when you might get stuck in the snow. If you do get stuck, keep your tail pipe clear and keep a window cracked a wee bit for fresh air. Be safe driving!
THE WAR ON CASH IS REAL!! Notice the increase in “self checkout” at places? People using cash are being shunned, made to feel less of a person because they choose to use cash. Never seen cash get hacked!!
To help counter this and to make people feel proud to use cash, we will be offering a discount of 7% for paying your bill with cash. That is right!! 7% off for using real honest US currency!! This offer can not be combined with our 7% PATRIOT DISCOUNT CARD. So you can decide at the time of sale, which offer works best. (the Patriot Discount Card has some restrictions. Ask for details)
It has been a bit since I updated the page. Apologies.
As many of my customers know, my Mother was having some health issues. After much work we finally had her on the mend. Her home care nurses were impressed with how well she was doing. She sat and did four puzzles over the past two months.
Laughing about Ball Room Dancing on Monday. Tuesday afternoon, she wound up taking a sudden turn for the worst. She was transported to the Dove House in Westminster early Sunday morning about 3am. I was with her when she went to the Lord at 8:30pm Sunday evening.
Please understand that it was my mother who believed in our dream of buying Taney Service Center. It was her that loaned us the money, not the bank. She saw the investment was sound and saw the dream also. Moving her to Taneytown from Rockville was quite the culture shock for her back in 2010. No longer could she drive 10-15 minutes and get Thai, Greek or whatever carryout. Then she had to adjust, which she did.
She loved her Kennies Market, Food Lion, Hair Talk and of course, breakfast at Thunderhead Bowl on Sundays. Shopping trips became more fun, Hanover, Westminster and the occasional Mr. Ed's Elephant Museum trip. Taneytown and this area was her home. I am happy to know that even though many did not know her personally, she always loved how we are a true community, people talked to each other. Something that suburban Rockville lost some decades ago.
Faith and I are taking this week off to get all the arrangements done and the legal stuff taken care of.
We ask all of our customers to understand if phone calls take longer or go unanswered at the shop. WE HAVE NO ANSWERING MACHINE!
Please also be nice to Brentt, Bob and Jerry. They are doing many jobs.
Be sure to reach out to those in your lives, make sure they know you love them. Tell them. Words carry much power. Life is short and you may have to live the rest of your life knowing those words said............
Honest work done at reasonable prices with a great warranty. We are locally owned, all that work here live in the immediate area. We shop here, we work here, we care about the community and we care about you the customer. Since 2004 we have been a part of Taneytown and the surrounding community. If you are looking for a change and get away from that “ripped off” feeling you get at some shops, stop by and meet us, shake our hand, see our facility and see if you feel comfortable trusting us with yours and your families lives. Because that is what you do when you take your vehicle in for service and repair. Think about it.
