Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and being an "Adult Baby"...#239

In my adult life today, I had to drive up to Ford of Londonderry's Vehicle Service Department to have my left rear tire patched.
It had a nail puncture.
I also washed dishes.
It is my house chore.
After dark, I did drive over to the Mall at Rockingham Park.
I needed to go to the Radio Shack consumer Electronics Store to purchase:
(1) 2N2222 NPN Transistor
(5) 4.7K Ohm 250mW Resistor
(10) 1N4148 250mW Diode
But, I need another electronic piece-part for a relay circuit interface board I designed for my PBASIC Micro-Controller:
(1) NTE 3098 Opto-Isolator IC
I can only get one of those at ESS, Inc. in Manchester here in NH.
When I returned home, I spent some more time in the cellar at my workbench building the latest little micro-controller interface board of my own design.
Even though I am retired on disability, I still try as best I can to keep up my technical skills.
At least I was not plopped in front of the television, and instead doing something useful.
I did not have time to take a nap this afternoon.
But, I will regress to being a baby before I go to bed later.
