File under: Unanticipated Indignities and Irritations of Widowhood

After the folks at quickie-lube mess up the settings on your electrically controlled side mirrors, there's no one to sit in the passenger seat while you shout, "Over to the left, up a little! Up, Up, Up--Too far! Back in. Oh, wait, I was leaning. Down and to the left. Not that left!"

Don't tell me that I shouldn't have electrically controlled side mirrors; the car was a gift.

Bah. I'm sorry you have to deal with so many annoyances in life, including all of the unanticipated ones such as this.

Not related to your post, big thanks for so unselfishly enjoying my news about GH's improvement. You understand how meaningful such news is in a way that almost no one else can. It's so nice for me to have good news to share after a spate of downer weeks.

Oh, my dad died in March, from Liver cancer, mum is dealing with all these stupid things that for 49 years dad did...it just seems the cruelest insult to have the car break down, the electricity stuff up, when all she needs is to just be sad that he is dead. He was only ill for 3 weeks,we are still reeling from the whole sad, horrible thing. Your blog is like reading our hearts. Helen.
