Hoofed it to Makani (to pick up my van) after being denied boarding on AC Transit (aka "the bus") for the cause of answering "Yes" to "Is that your pet?" instead of "No this is my service animal." No matter, my pet and I enjoyed the beautiful weather and a two mile walk / exploration of the repurposed Navy base. |
Happily my little car was not broken into overnight. I took the battery out and got it recharged at an O'Reilly auto-parts store. Apparently that's a service they offer, and it was super fast, too - less than an hour. Put the juiced up battery back into the car and my new housemate Wayne drove it back to our house.
Next step is to actually replace the alternator belt, which is kind of annoying to do because you have to take off the water pump's belt first... So the water pump and the alternator have to do a little dance to get all the belts in order.
Maria is in Patagonia for ten days, on a trek with her parents. Did you know that Patagonia is not a country? I'm not sure I was entirely clear on the matter and might have confused it with Paraguay. Lest there be lingering confusion, Patagonia is a region of Chile and Argentina.
Dinner with Anisa and Wayne at some place in Oakland's Chinatown.
