picked up Sue ( from Australia) we
headed out to do a few errands.
First the Farmer's Market for
organic veggies from Kale
and bread from Les the Baker.
Then coffee from the local coffee place. I think they roast it there.
|It is still warm when you get it!|
We also wanted to hit the
ATM so I parked and stayed in
the car. That was OK. After a couple of minutes I decided that maybe I should get some cash too. So I locked the car
and headed out. I really was gone
for only 4 minutes. I guess I hadn't
differentiated the wheel chair access
parking from the regular. I swear that blue line was on the other space!
Well not according to the foot cop.
Tempting jail again......we definitely
had a language barrier but I was
so enthusiastic that I got out my
map and put in on the hood to
try and find out what I was to do and
where I was to go....well.....she
finally got tired of trying to explain to me and couldn't reach anyone on her patrol who spoke
English so she told me to get out of
there. I complies with a Thank you
Very Much!!! I learned my lesson!!
Then it was off to Terry Carpenter's.
He is a very good diesel mechanic
and is the man who removed, rebuilt
and replaced my transmission for
Peanuts!! And I mean peanuts!
His place is a treasure trove of
parts and I was mesmerized while
he tried to find me a cam for my
spare water pump. There was no joy
finding the cam but he did explain the bronze ring around some of the
pumps and why I don't need them! Finally!!
I seriously think he knows where
So we finished our errands and
planned to head out the next day.
A great time was had and I miss my
buddy Sue and hope she comes back
|But Terri what the heck is this for and why is it on my water pump???|
|Sue at the helm! What a great sailor she is!|
