Who's asking: Me
The dateline on this morning's post is Augusta rather than Gardiner, because I'm posting from the Maine State Library. Just down the hill, the fine technicians at O'Connor Volkswagen are replacing the brake light switch in my car; its demise is the reason my car won't go.
As repairs go, it's pretty minor. When I couldn't shift the car out of park this morning, I had visions of transmission replacements, weeks without the car, etc., etc... on top of whatever needs to be done to make my laptop functional again. As Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say, it's always something.
Got home last night around midnight, picked up Dizzy this morning, and have spent the rest of the day dealing with the car. I'll cut this post short except to say Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns to Dad, who does not want me to say anything about which birthday this is.
