Grind Grind Grind Redux

This time the grinding noise is from the starter on my van. Lisa said last week that it sounds like the Bendix is failing. I've made arrangements with my mechanic in Fremont to leave it with him on Friday morning. Since I'm taking the train to Sacramento this Saturday and renting a car to go up to Yuba City to visit my mother, sister, and nephew, I don't need the van, and I can use transit to get to and from work while the van in the shop. Even more conveniently, it turns out that I have an errand to my company's Fremont warehouse that can be conveniently done on Friday morning, after which I can take the van to Fremont Wheel & Brake, then walk over to Centerville and take Amtrak back to San Jose, then work from my apartment in the afternoon.
