We encountered alternator problems...! Made it here with gas on empty and battery light on! Friend Nancy Gong gave us phone # of SB Mazda near her and appt for 7:50am next day.
Spent morning with Mike, Nancy's very companionable ex who showed us around SB and took us to war for a splendid view breakfast while we waited for car repairs. The newly installed alternator was defective so now Blue (car) won't be ready til tomorrow. Grade school friend, Linda came by Nancy's and the 3 gals reminiscenced 35 years ago travels together ... really fun/funny! We moved to Linda&Curt's.
