To the rescue

So the household personal vehicle is back in service. Now it’s the fallback computer that’s in dire straits, but that’s another story. Most people, I think, know that some cabdrivers carry a Slim Jim for those times when the key’s been locked in the vehicle. And I think that most are aware that drivers usually carry jumpers or battery packs to assist at those times when there’s just not enough juice to get rolling. When the driver opened the hood to see whether charging the battery would help, he diagnosed corroded battery cables. He recommended application of Coke or DP. That worked. Then he followed to the repair shop and gave a ride home. His diagnosis was in every way correct. There were computer settings that had to be redone, though, for the throttle to keep the engine from cutting out. Roy’s is gone, now, and our regular retired, but now we have a Galahad at Yellow for those emergency time calls and other taxicab rescues. Wave if you see Yellow Cab 17 around town. That’ll most likely be Mr. Brown behind the wheel, driving and rescuing with “A Touch oF Class,” as the business card says.
