The Mini Cooper was acting up and the cause was very elusive. There was evidence of mice in the engine block but it seemed strange. Everything pointed to the transmission because of the erratic driving at slow speeds.
It is necessary to take a day in Boston when the Mini goes for service. Fortunately this has only been four times, and the cost tallied around $300, since we got the car in March 03.
Pouring rain and crowded MBTA trains put on a little gloom, but over all it was a good day that took us to the Museum of Science.

"Da Gahhdin" next to the Zakian Bridg
It took almost an hour to get to the museum on the T and that's how long it took to fix "Mini". After getting the call from the dealer, the decision was made to get lunch in the Italian District, (The North End), and do the museum movies next month.
We got pretty wet during the thirty minute walk to "Italy", and spent a little more time window menu shopping before settling on a very traditional Italian Ristorante.
