In Los Gatos, spent a fair amount of time trying *again* to get my proper Calif. drivers license, and get the motorcycle registered and get a copy of the title. The Los Gatos DMV is considered less hellish than most, and it's a place to "work" that I don't usually go to.
I hope it all works this time!
Thank goodness for panhandling, which funds things like this, although I only took a $17 hit.
Then of course I panhandled along the main street in Los Gatos, got lots of "vinegar kitty" looks etc but enough people donated that I was able to put money into the banjo fund, buy some household stuff and groceries, and put aside rent money. My room-mate, the actual renter of this apartment (I just live on the couch, remember) is away for a while, in "detox" so it's up to me to save aside the rent I'll owe him when he emerges.
I also have to make sure everything is OK with the new romm-mate, a Japanese guy who works for a biotech company, the guy's almost old enough to be my Dad and looks older! So, he arrived last night and we ended up going to a local Japanese noodle place for dinner, myself and this older Japanese businessman guy in a suit lol. Good dinner, and although I offered to pay for mine, he paid which was cool. Not sure how cool it was though since I heard him throw up this morning, I hope he's OK - he's not come home yet tonight.
The main thing is, I'm just a bit closer to having a banjo, and it was a fairly decent day.

Sounds like a good subject for an ongoing column in a local paper or magazine.

Hah they'd not want to print it ... no one make money writing any more apparently, I've read about how Jack London could sell all these cool short stories of his and I'd try it myself but Jack London had a million little magazines and papers to write for, those are gone now.
