02:26 am: Longer than I Thought

I should really count days, but I've only been online every other day most of the time now. I'm down to 11 papers (from 30) and I'm skimming the inside as well as reading the fronts now, so I hope to be back in order in a week or so.

I was on my way to the grocery today and all of a sudden, there was a burning smell. I noticed that there was a little smoke coming out of the fan switch (I had it at 2 of 3), so I turned that off and moved the Normal A/C to Vent. I turned around and headed almost home. I went into the shop and explained what happened and one of the guys had a good idea what it was. He'd been just finishing some ice cream, so he brought me home and took the van back before he got back to work. They'll let me know tomorrow (Wednesday), but I now have a lot of things shoved toward the end of the week, and I have to move a gyn appointment.

A Quinnipiac poll (too few people, I think) that was checking out Virginian approval ratings, found that almost all the approval of the horrible conservative laws have dropped dramatically. At least that's's good!

Heya!

At least you caught the burning smell right away, unlike the friend of mine that got to drive with the heat on in high July ;D

Yeah, and he was right -- it was a switch for the fan. But he also pointed out they should change the oil. When you drive as infrequently as I do, I'm still not to the mileage to have it changed, but it hasn't been changed for three years, so it does need to be changed.

He called me this morning, too, and said the inside of one of the tires is metal, so also new tires and alignment. Expensive, but it's all stuff that should be done.

It's good to know there is some sanity left in my America.
