Tonight I dropped Old Blue back at the dealership again. At least this time it was not because of a problem. I really need an oil change and want it to get done as early as possible tomorrow. Plus, I would really like to sleep in a bit after a long week.
You may have seen my Old Blue Blues post from Wednesday night. I will give you an update. The tire was able to be patched, but I needed a new battery. They called me first thing in the morning for the approvals and I was on the road toward the office by 9:30, which included stopping for gas. They had asked me if I also wanted to get an oil change as it was due, but I needed to get to the office.
Here you can see that it was a bit cold out, so the two mile walk was made with a coat on.
I had an interesting walk. It is amazing how many more cars are on the streets on a Friday night versus a Wednesday night. Plus, all the crazy people with loud cars were out and about and you could hear squealing tires and revving motors all around.
I also walked by a small herd of goats. I see these goats all the time when I drive home from the mall and have always wanted to take pictures of them. Now I have one.
Just near the goats I saw something else interesting. This motor home was slowly being backed down the street. It seem that the clearance on the underpass was not enough. I am not sure where they will have to go to find a greater clearance.
As I neared home I turned my camera skyward and took a picture of the constellation Orion. I will add it to my collection of night sky pictures. See: Some Shots of Orion
Hopefully Old Blue will be ready before lunch time. I have a bunch of errands to run tomorrow before heading off to a party in the evening.
