It's hard to believe that I didn't have any pictures in my "2018 - Miscellany" folder until yesterday. But it makes a certain sense, as I didn't yet copy anything here because I hadn't yet anything worth capturing on disk.

As you can see, my car made a quick visit to the mechanic yesterday. After chatting with him, and finding out that it didn't make sense to drop off the car until my three favorite idiot lights came back on, I didn't expect to see him again that same afternoon. But, as I started my car to go to GFJ's, the lights returned, and my car made a quick visit to capture diagnostic information before I went on my way.
There was a part of me that worried a lot about driving to GFJ. On the start that brought me to the mechanic's shop, the car felt as if it was running on 3 cylinders. When I started it up again, everything was back to normal. Although the idiot lights were still on, I was getting better mileage than normal all the way to GFJ's place. Once at GFJ's, we went for dinner, and then took a walk around the track. Neither of us wanted to take a long walk - we simply wanted to get our digestive juices running. Then it was back to her place to rest for the evening.

Valentine's Day came, and neither of us wanted to get out of bed. I had to drive home, and she had to see the doctor in regard to how she healed from her recent operation. So we decided to have a late breakfast in New Paltz before parting for the day. I knew it was going to be a long day for her. She had already been on a half hour call with the "Wasband" regarding work, and was still on another call (which lasted about an hour) when we arrived at the diner.
All too soon, we had to go our separate ways. She got good news from her surgeon - she could again start lifting things, building up muscle strength that she lost in the 2 months since the operation. As for me, I got home in time to take care of an urgent matter, and then rest for a while.
Late in the afternoon, Lili called - and I told her that she had to complete her registration for the cruise. She wanted me to enter this information, but I said NO. Any error on my part (such as entering in the wrong passport number) could cause her not to go on the cruise. So I pushed this task back to her. And then, she sent me a link to a dress that she thought I should wear to her son's wedding in July.
What do you think of it? Although a light coral might look a little washed out on me, it is appropriate for a Summer wedding. I only hope that it doesn't make me look fatter than I am.
I didn't feel much like going out again. So I called it a day much earlier than usual....
