Sorry for the radio silence the past few days. I’ve been busy!
Got my car back yesterday – finally. You may recall that I hit a deer on March 1st, which buckled my hood and bashed in the front end of the car. It’s been in the body shop all this time, and I was driving a loaner. Tuesday morning I got a call saying it was ready, so I went to the body shop, dropped off the loaner, signed a bunch of papers, and drove off the lot with my car. Whew, right?
Nope. Nothing is ever that easy.
I got halfway home, and the whole dashboard lit up with every possible warning. A message was flashing, “Go to dealership immediately” and luckily, it was just down the road from where I was at the time. I’m still under warranty, so I got to drive in on the “VIP side” of the garage. I explained my problem, and it turned out to be just a system reset issue. Nothing was wrong, except the car’s computer needed to be rebooted.
However, they couldn’t do it right away. So they put me in a loaner. Sigh. Got it back yesterday, though, and it’s like brand new, inside and out, so I think (fingers and toes crossed) that this particular adventure is finally over.
As a gesture of kindness to the human community during this pandemic, Andrew Lloyd Webber will be putting his musicals online so we can all enjoy a reprieve from worry. Starts today, with “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Each musical will be available for 48 hours starting on each Friday at 7 p.m. British Time, which is 2 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time. So, if you are interested, be sure to tune in during a 48 hour window after the start time. Search for the Youtube channel called “The Shows Must Go On.”
I’m still sewing masks for the local hospital, and I’ve got a bit of a cottage industry going here. Fabric all over the place. I haven’t sewed in years, so this is different for me, but it’s for a good cause.
Please observe all the “rules” during this time, and keep yourself well. The world needs you.
