So this morning we decided to go out to breakfast (we do not normally do this weekdays) at the Silver Dollar Pancake house nearby. It was yummy and cozy ans comfortable as always and I mean always since I have been eating there for 50 years!
Early Summer in Southern California is much of the same day in and day out: Clear blue sky, temps in the 89-93 degree range and light breeze,not bad at all.
We took the Hot Rod and made it only one of the three blocks home when the fuel pump went KAPUT! At least it waited until after breakfast!
As breakdowns go this was not too bad, Bob is out fixing the car in the driveway as I type this and there were a couple of very helpful guys crossing the street when we rolled to a silent stop that helped push the tank of a car into a parking lot. The parking lot was empty which made things easy for the tow driver who arrived very quickly within 8 minutes of calling Auto Club.
Bonus : our tow truck driver did not laugh too hard when he found out that he was only towing it 2 blocks!
Hey, I do not want to push a tank of a car even 2 blocks …uphill!!!
At any rate we are all good and the car will be as well!
Have a great long 4th of July weekend those of you in the USA and just have a great weekend whatever the length to the rest of the world!
