I brought in a new case today. Two new ones in the last week and a half, which means the business will continue. But I was in a bad mood, so the rest of the day I played. Rode the Vespa this morning.

Found a replacement spark plug for the Stella, and rewired the tail light that didn’t work. Both projects went off without a hitch and it is running smoothly. It is a lot more rough around the edges than the Vespa, but satisfying in its own way. A nice way to spend an evening.

Yeah, they aren’t supposed to look like this. But the plug on this is much easier to get to than the one on the Vespa, so there’s that.

I had a helper on my trip to the auto parts store in the Sunchaser. Beautiful today, 80 degrees.

My mother is having some health problems - a first for her, as she has always been healthy. But she is 78, and I will worry until we have a diagnosis. My sister is very self-absorbed, and my mom and I have grown very close since my dad died in 2008. It is frustrating to be unable to go see her, but she is 2.5 hours away, and I don't want to risk getting her sick, especially with an undiagnosed issue going on. Ah, life.
