Per my best laid plans, I was to depart Southern Maryland tomorrow morning for the return trip to New England.
This afternoon I had a bit of car trouble.
So instead of going to my 2pm appointment with my tax accountant, I was at the local Volkswagen dealer with Mary Passat for the entire afternoon. Mary was not feeling well. Her automatic transmission skipped a gear because she has a bad clutch pack. The condensed version of the long story is a $570 bandaid repair bill and a tax appointment rescheduled to Friday afternoon.
The new best laid plan is to depart Southern Maryland bright and early on Saturday morning.
As the day was a complete bust in terms of fun travel or fabulous thrifting opportunities to write about, here is a picture of a cat pretending to be a river otter:
Meanwhile, I miss my Emma.
That is all the news that is fit to print!
