Sometimes when it is as hot as it is in Wisconsin right now, a power nap is just the thing. I took one a little bit ago.
If you read my post from yesterday, about bike commuting with eggs, then you may remember that I had to take my car into the mechanic this morning for a few minor tweaks, most notably a tire rotation and changing of my frayed alternator belt (preventive, since no one wants to break down by the side of the road in this kind of heat). I also asked him to find out why my car AC is not working and fix it if it was a simple thing.
It turns out, it just needed a freon recharge. I was a little bit surprised to find out my smug producing Prius actually uses this outdated refrigerant. I think it's a greenhouse gas, one which my little car contributed generously to the atmosphere, given the fact that it was devoid of it. Anyway, I have AC in my car now and will presumably have it in a few weeks when I do RAGBRAI in hot Iowa is hot late July.
My mechanic did a superb job. To tell you the truth, I cannot actually assess the quality of the tire rotation and the alternator belt replacement. But I know the AC works, so based on that I will assume the proper outcomes of the other operations.
My parents are in town, passing through on their way up to the cottage in northern Wisconsin. I think we are going to take our respective dogs over to the dog park to get acquainted. I need to practice a few tunes for GUPPY EFFECT v2.0 practice tomorrow at 5 PM. But since GUPPY EFFECT 1.0 practice was canceled (at noon), I will actually have time to do that tomorrow early afternoon. We have a lot of songs to learn though, so I may also do some tonight.
But I am coming along with jazz piano, so I might focus on that tonight.
