Some people enjoy the structure of having a daily routine. I am not one of those people. I can do it for a time, and then I have to give myself a firm talking to.

I returned from picking up one of my vehicles from a repair shop on Nov. 17. The front end of the vehicle needed an alignment. A previous visit earlier this year required alignment and other front-end repairs on my other vehicle. I average about two and a half frontend repairs a year.

One morning it was rainy when I got up, so I dressed accordingly for a cool day, and I walked outside and it was muggy, oppressive and hot.
