It took pretty much all day, but the car was fixed Friday and I got to Dave’s just before 10 p.m. The people at the shop are very nice and were very sympathetic. The bill for repairs was based on the original estimate, which means they got screwed, kind of, because it took so much longer than “the book” said it should. I’m grateful for their efforts.
I took more photos of the town, but I haven’t edited them yet. I might get some edited yet this weekend; we don’t have much planned except for dinners out.
