Well – that day covered a lot of ground.
First – off to Flesh Auto for the electrical repair on my tail-light. That came in cheap. It turns out that the dealership in Nelson had put the wrong bulb in. Sigh. So now that’s nicely fixed. Next stop – Kal Tire to get the new windshield wiper connector installed. And that came in cheaper than quoted – hurrah!
So now everything is good. I have a new splash plate (no more duck tape) and winter tires and wipers and a tail light. All is good. And I drive home – behind a gravel truck.
Yup – one more windshield ding. I mean really? My third one this year!
Deep breath. All is well. I will stop by the glass shop early next week.
So, after lunch, I get a text from Julie – walk in Hemer? Absolutely! So – happy Ocean and happy Abby and lots of chattering. I fed Abby and then I read the entire platform of the new BC Ecosocialist Party.
Okay! I am excited. I can get behind everything here. Oh sure, I may want a few clarifications, but this is a platform I can cheer about and get excited about. This is NOT politics as usual. This actually address the emergency we are facing – it addresses the extinction event we find ourselves in.
Yeah – I like this. This is exciting. Next step – a talk with one of the party organizers on Sunday. How can I help? What can I do?
And now – well, I’d better get my butt in gear for Mount Moriarty tomorrow. I have been wanting to do this mountain for ages. Yay! Very excited. But first I need to break out more duck tape – this time on my backpack.
