Starter died

A month ago the started acted like it was dying or had a low battery. Finally though, it got the engine started.

Fast forward to a few days ago. I tried to cranking it and it turned over slowly then not at all. It just made a very faint humming sound you had to put your ear near the starter to even hear. It was deader than a doornail. I took it in to O'Reilly and had them test it to be sure. I got a new (rebuilt) one with a lifetime warranty for $60, tax included. I put it on yesterday.. problem solved.

Taking it in to get the rear brakes done this morning just a half mile down the road from my house.
