Friday: (03/04) Breakfast from L&L Hawaiian, my usual sausage egg and cheese English muffin and a donut. Lou and Dawn headed off before me. Lou’s meeting the refrigerator repair man. I met my fellow hikers at the park. The rain that was forecast for this afternoon was already starting but that only deterred one hiker. The rest of us (22 hikers) had a nice hike in a continuous light rain for our 9 miles hike.
No views but we saw lots of newts enjoying the rain. Just after the hike we had a real deluge. Good timing.
Lou, meanwhile got a call about an hour after the beginning of the service window that the repairman would not be coming out because they don’t have a replacement thermostat. Nice to have gotten a call before driving 20 miles to San Jose. She drove home, picked up the papers she needed and headed to Home Depot. She must have impressed them because they had a loaner refrigerator deliver and installed within two hours. They still won’t replace it even though this is the sixth service call. This may become a law suit soon. I stopped for dinner at the China Wok restaurant in Sunnyvale on my way home. they stopped at Original Joe’s Italian Restaurant in San Jose for their lunch. About 1530 the tenant called and said the power went off for the loaner refrigerator. I drove down and checked the power, found no problems other then it is on a circuit that has many outlets around the house so i moved it to the dedicated circuit the existing refrigerator is on. I was back home by 1900.
