At 7:30 AM I was at Leon’s Car Care Center to have the brakes checked on the motorhome.
Since there was nothing wrong with the brakes I figured I would be on the road by 10:00 AM.
After the mechanic took all the wheels off and took the braking system apart, he called me and showed me the front brakes.
The brake calibers, the pads, and the rotors had to be replaced. It was a $ 1,589.42 job.
I was told that it would take all day. I drove to Claudia’s house to pick up my mail and from there I went to the Senior Center and used one of their computers. Then I drove to the mall, had lunch and did some inside walking. It had rained all night and was still raining.
At 1:30 PM I left to check on the progress of the brake work. The motorhome was parked on the street. Nobody had called me.
I put on a poncho and attached the car to the motorhome and then I went to the office and paid the bill.
The parts had come in real fast and two mechanics finished the job.
I left Eureka at 2:00 PM and arrived at the Coyote Casino in Ukiah at 5:00 PM. It was driving three hours in the rain. I was glad when it was over.

This was another driving day. It rained most of the drive. When I reached highway 99, near Modesto, the clouds were brighter and the sun peaked out occasionally.
I arrived at the Walmart in Fresno at 3:00 PM.
After going to the store and looking around for a bit, I took it easy.
