...and other technical stuff
Meanwhile, this week I made a short trip by car to spend a couple of days with my friend Joanie at her house north of Burlington. We had a great visit but when I got ready to leave my car wouldn't start--dead battery. So we two old ladies both had to get our manuals out to even figure out how to prop up the hoods (I know, I should have known this) but we managed to get jumper cables hooked up and my buggy started. I hopped in immediately and made it home, but an hour later it wouldn't start again. I know the battery is quite old so called the Ford dealer and they promptly came and got it, put in a new battery and changed the oil. So my little kiwi colored Escape is road worthy again.
The next day I called the RV dealer to arrange to pick Agatha up that afternoon and bring her back when they had the part. My friend Letha graciously agreed to take me over and we milled around looking at gadgets while we waited for them to bring Agatha up. Finally they came back and said it wouldn't start--dead battery. Now that battery is only three months old so I went with them and discovered they had left the radio on. They finally got it jumped and once again we hit the road and made it home. It still starts this morning so I think the radio was the problem.
Today I plan to do some reading and writing and hope my Kindle and my computer don't blow up.
