Afterthought:

I keep receiving phone calls informing me that the warranty on my 2003 GMC Sonoma pick-up truck has expired.

Who woulda thunk?

(As someone who was raised Ford, I am distressed to admit that said vehicle is one damned fine piece of work. And a vehicle that is paid for is priceless.)
