…and I remain trapped at home. John Case is going to pick me up at 6:30 AM to get to the radio show setup at Mellow Moods (you can listen from 7:30 to 9:00 AM on WSHC 89.7) and I assume he’ll drop me off at Brown’s Auto Repair after the show.
It seems the new water pump (another part I didn’t know about) wasn’t delivered until late today and the guy working on my car won’t have everything back together until the late morning. This will only add hourly charges and watch the whole thing go beyond the $1200.00 they estimated yesterday.
That blows my evening out of the water, too. I was going to go to the Thurber Carnival rehearsal at Full Circle tonite to work on the lighting plot… looks like the next rehearsal I’ll be able to get to is Monday. John is going to express my regrets to the Director, as he has to be at rehearsal at 7 PM. They haven’t run both acts in sequence and I have plenty of time to get the lighting down.
And life goes on…

I was supposed to meet with Candi from the American Conservation Film Festival this morning, but without a car I’m trapped at home. We’ve rearranged our meeting as a telephone conversation as opposed to coffee at Mellow Moods.
I suppose I could walk the mile and a half to get to Mellow Moods, but it would also require a walk back and my exercise program isn’t up to that yet… the hills would kill me.
John Case just called to say that Winners and Losers will be broadcast from Mellow Moods tomorrow morning and if my car isn’t out of the shop he’ll pick me up. At least I can still do the radio. I have a 1:45 doctor’s appointment in Hagerstown that Elly has to drive me to anyway because they are doing a test that requires sedation and I couldn’t drive after it anyway.
So I’m waiting for Candi’s ten o’clock call… just me and the dogs.
