    Thanks, Allen. Andrea S. -- the townsfolk were relieved that I did not take your coaching to heart but rather kept my pants on. ;)

      Thanx for your concern, guys. The high winds have returned tonight, so we're on high alert again - "red flag warning" re: fire danger. I've lived in and commuted through 3 of those SoCal areas now aflame. Sad stuff. Safe so far here.

    car broke down in my driveway as next door neighbor was leaving; bummed a ride from her to do lunch at my friend Bernard's, then walked back up the hill to home.

      Nothing like car trouble to get the week started off well. You made lemonade... I hope it's nothing serious.

      Allen/Pierre/Stacy - Amen that it happened as i was pulling out, rather than while i was winding my way down a curvy mountain road. Pierre - the trick is to get a new enough Kia. From about 2009 and newer, Consumer Reports gives them good ratings. Mine is from 2006 -- a plethora of trouble.

    From today's run on Sutton's Run trail - a fun one because it's never crowded, ever. EVER. A beautiful trail that few know about. And I ain't telling you where it is neither. ;)

      Thanks, Mel. Brenda -- True, and I'd imagine more so for a female.... or a male who forgot to take a headlamp! :) Happened to me once at high elevation, 4 miles from civilization. Predictably, it was my fastest time ever on that section.

      I was just going to ask you if they gave you a free coffee. And I agree with you about not raising a stink, but I agree with Pierre, too.

      I've raised many a stink in life, when the situation, I felt, warranted it (as recently as yesterday, when a Home Depot screwed up my brother's "online order for pickup" for instance). But I've had HUNDREDS of excellent experiences in a Starbucks, and felt that this was a mere anomaly, not something requiring a corporate course correction. And, honestly, it was no big deal for me; I didn't miss an important date; I merely got more exercise and got more time to listen to my podcast. :)
