Auto Maintenance Week, so oily....

Last week was all about human maintenance. This week was automotive.

The Daughter helped change the oil in the 1985.5 Porsche. This was not her first time helping. She also helped me about fifteen years back (pic of her when we lived in Santa Cruz below)

I installed new brake pads in Kat's E30.

I was glad to be done. I've not done brake pads before. It wasn't difficult. The first one took more than an hour, the second took less than twenty minutes.

While I was on my back in the garage.... I noticed a box of old photographs. I didn't think I had any pics of my first Porsche, a 1984 944 back in Baltimore. This pic was taken outside of the Broom Factory building where I had my live/work loft.

Owen Summers (our piano instructor of many years) was in town to perform with Mente Clara for Hermeto Pascoal's 83rd birthday....

Aaron Parks was on drums. The room is really small and the audience is seated. I didn't get the best pics or video.
