Mary’s thingamajig doesn’t work…

So yesterday Mary and I flew from Seattle, WA to Sacramento, CA. It was the first time I’ve flown since 1991 and I still don’t care if I never get on an airplane again. In general, a pain in the butt!

All in all everything went smoothly. The flight ran about 30 minutes behind schedule. But the big pain was when Mary’s thingamajig wouldn’t work.

To make a long story short, Mary’s son Ken had left her car for her pickup in the long-term parking at the Sacramento Airport. That’s when we found out Mary’s thingamajig wouldn’t work. Dead battery!

Here’s a picture of Mary’s thingamajig.

So Mary called her daughter who lives about 20 minutes from the airport and who has a spare key to Mary’s car. Bottom line…about 1.5 hours lost getting access to her car.

Instead of arriving at Mary’s House when we should have at 8:30 PM, we arrived at 10:30 PM. We are here for Mary’s July 4th family gathering. We will fly back to Seattle. July 7th.
