Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 140: Tom's Automotive Service

We frequently pass by Tom's Automotive Service at the corner of 8th & Q Streets, just a block from home, although we've never taken Odo here for repairs, as we prefer to use a certified Honda dealer for maintenance on our hybrid.

This local business is part of our daily urban experience, and it's a familiar landmark when going to and from the gym or driving home from errands.  Since the streets around us are all one-way, and 9th Street is one-way traveling south, we often end up driving north on 8th Street (if we're coming from the south) in order to turn right (east) on Q Street so that we can then access our town-home driveway, which is just south of the intersection at 9th & Q.

Based on the Yelp reviews, it looks as though Tom's could be a good nearby option if we ever need to get Odo access to care a bit closer to home, unless we encounter a problem on the weekend, since Tom's apparently doesn't offer extended hours of car care beyond the typical work day.
