I got the car back. Inexpensively fixed, and rushed through that same day. Amazing. An honest mechanic is worth more than gold.
Not much else to tell…I played in Photoshop for a bit today, drawing/painting completely from scratch, which I’ve always found to be very difficult. Much easier to draw on paper first, scan and then continue working in Photoshop.
After I got the car back, I went down to the stable to ride. Waited two hours, and then went home. *sigh*
