I probably should have stayed home yesterday, but I so rarely take a day off that I forgot about it until lunchtime. Didn't feel good at all, though, and doubt I was much good to anyone.
But while I'm still a bit under the weather today, so to speak, things are much improved. At least I can keep my eyes open. I've lost my voice from coughing so much; some folks probably think that's an improvement. :)
I selected a mobile mechanic, based on some on-line reviews, and got my truck's cooling system repaired last night. The guy was professional, knowledgeable, and quick. All things considered, while it turned out to be something I could have done myself, I didn't know that at the time. It would have cost me considerably more time to get things taken care of, and much cheaper than calling a tow truck.
But experience is a great teacher, and it's not the first time I've dealt with wonky cooling systems. I brought along a gallon of 50/50 antifreeze mix this morning, and after watching the temp gauge go up and down a bit on the drive to work, topped off the overflow reservoir again when I got here. That should be the end of the troubles (he said, hopefully).
So I have a bunch of elevator techs scheduled to appear today, to make some city-mandated repairs to those things. I'd prefer Star Trek-style turbo lifts, but apparently they haven't been invented yet.
Darned inconvenient, that.
