a journey. after
errands in seattle, woke up in a neighbor's bed.
P & J are in
mexico, lent us a key to use their place as needed.
mighty nice of
them! another neighbor let me use his parking space,
where i could back up against a
wall, a measure of overnight security for
i picked up yesterday, so long i had to keep
the tailgate down. slept
shitty, up early for follow-up transmission
appointment in auburn with the 2 Dons.
(first i had to load a heavy door onto rack in the
dark, so cold my fingers fumbled the
straps.) when i got to shop, Don the Younger said,
"clutch adjustment? no such thing," then
added, "i stepped in dogshit," and wiped his shoe on
the asphalt. Elder Don was out but the
paperwork said bring back for clutch
adjustment at 1,000 miles. Young Don
laughed, "Old Don's
old school, has people come back. but there's
nothing to check." he took it for a spin nonetheless
found nothing wrong, which i guess was good news?
and at least i got a free cup of coffee out of it.
had 2 other errands in nearby kent: renew vehicle
tabs and pick this weird
timepiece up off a porch....
