Well, the bad news was that the alternator, battery, and belt were all bad and need replacing.
The good news is that the car didn't quit on me until I pulled into my driveway last night.
So, I'm as happy as I can be under the circumstances. It should be done by the time I need to leave to meet friends for a twilight picnic at the Hollywood Bowl to listen to an all-Mozart concert under the stars. If one is scheduled by Fate for Car Trouble, this is a fairly painless way to get it checked off.
Still working on the revisions of Pale Guardian - and the online certification class that the community college district (or possibly the State - I'm not sure where these orders come from) is requiring me to take - and prepping for classes which start in less than three weeks (and so far the adjuncts - of whom I am one - don't have either offices or telephones on campus) - and trying to work my way back to the next Benjamin January AND the next couple of Further Adventures.
It has been a massively difficult summer.

Best wishes for an excellent evening of respite.

Good car, getting you home before keeling over!
