Subject: RE: BS: Happy B.D., Curmudgeon!
Alas, his B.D. "celebrations" including finding out his car is repairable only if large amounts of cash are thrown at it. So....he got to spend copious amounts of time on the phone with our trusted used car guy and found another Saturn, four years newer, with substantially fewer miles on it and for only about a thousand bucks more than the repairs would cost. And it has a HEATER (which the old one lacked all through last winter; brrrrrrrrrr!)

That kept him from standing in line at Motor Vehicles to get his pitcher took by the camera that makes everyone look equally hideous. (Friday...)

Fried clams and fried shrimp (and pints of Guinness) overlooking the very chill looking bay and home, feeling quite stuffed.
