Clutch gave up the ghost gradually on the way back from a night drive and had to call AAA. Haven’t checked under the car yet but I suspect Slave cylinder to be the culprit!
edit: SC is guilty!

The roads are dry, the hard top is on, it's about 1 degree C...so why not take the Roadster to do the errands? I had some time to play, so took the long way... got a bit lost in the local orchards ... found myself again & started home. Had some fun in the curvy-twisties. And pop. Out of second ... all by itself... that can't be good ('cause I think I've seen this problem here on the forum before)...lets go to third. That's fine. Back to second...Pretty sure I heard a new noise...popped out. Into rhird ...hear a new noise...let's pull over and call a freind. I wasn't really stranded, (but I did get a tow home).
The bright side?
I'd call this pre-stranded....or even a preventative stranding. Because, the plan is to drive the roadster to our daughter's wedding in May ... It is about an hour and a half away via some pretty fun, twisty roads. Better now, all alone with a loaf of bread and a jug of milk in the passenger seat than the mother of the bride and a deadline.
