Yesterday was great, but Tuesday turned into a typical Monday. I had meetings and messages and interruptions and things went haywire.
First, I worked from home so I could sign for the delivery of the trailer. It came, but they lost (or so we thought) the key to my lock. My only key.
So, at lunch time, I took my sawsall to the lock. 45 minutes and I made it about 1/4 of the way through. I then remembered that heat removes the temper from steel. So, I spent my last 15 minutes of my lunch hour torching the lock.
When 5pm rolled around, I had Jonathan grab the lock with some pliers and I took the sawsall and cut through the remaining 75% in about 45 seconds. We opened the trailer and there was the key. HOW MORONIC !!!
Then I called about my car that was supposed to arrive on June 23rd. They gave me a song and dance about the truck breaking down. Heck, my car didn’t even leave San Lorenzo until June 21st. It sat in San Lorenzo for two whole weeks. I guess Dependable Auto Shippers (DAS) isn’t very reliable. They are now estimating my car will arrive on July 6th because of Independence Day. (I’m starting to call it Independence Day instead of the 4th of July because I think our law makers have forgotten why we declared independence from England — taxation without representation.)
But, the day ended nicely. I went to the temple with Elizabethe after she got home. It was really nice. It was really nice to sit there and think, I’m here. I made it.
I picked up some General Tsao Chicken from Happiness Garden for dinner. Best Chinese food around. (They are at 212 E Main Street — right across the street from the Grandin Press Building.)
