We ran our errands early as the heat increased throughout the day. I took a book and should have taken two. Today’s the day I need to baste my white lace collar on my costume but smogging the Toyota, Myrtle, came first.
Myrtle passed everything with flying colors, and we got her registered easily at the AAA office. We had our half sandwiches and now I’m here putting out a light weight blog for the day. Flowers need watering, dinner needs buying, and as I finished the book at the AAA office, another book needs starting.
This is the first year that both the truck and the Toyota needed to get smogged at the same time. The fees are dramatically lower, but as usual Grumpy will trump the bank account with his need for a new exhaust system and catalytic converter. We will cross our fingers and hope the gods let him pass the test, but I can’t imagine they will let us get away with it.
Then again, life is pretty darned good around here. Really good will really be a chrome tip on his new exhaust pipe.
