ON THE BACK BURNER

June 29

Since my dentist in Venice retired and since I may be in PortTownsend for awhile, I found a dentist here. A couple of things happened. His fees are lower than what I am accustomed to paying...I am a self payer, so that is a plus. And ,he gave me a less expensive option for a problem that I have had,  but didn’t act on. I consider this a win win appointment for me. And I didn’t have to parallel  park. I am a champion parallel parker. Bob taught me how to do this and I am really good at it. But now , I am using my grandson’s girl friend’s car, while they are working in Alaska. I can hardly see over the steering wheel and I am not that comfortable with whatever is on my right side.I drive a mini van and I get a great view, on all sides of the van. I can park that baby any where. I can’t remember the last time that I drove a sedan.The loaner is automatic, thank goodness. One challenge for me is to remember to put on and then release the parking brake ,when I park. I don’t think that I have ever used my brake  in  Venice. I would have to think about where it is and how to release it. I do know that it is not where you would think it should be. That is sorta how it also is with my spare tire. We had the van for years before I found out where the tire was and it was a grandson who showed me.Fortunately for me, Port Townsend is small enough that there isn’t much parallel parking. I’d have to drive until I found the perfect head first space.   I can back up.But not in a straight line.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
