Wish they’d done this earlier; been looking for some new ideas for dinner. Since it’s related to a mailbox it’s no wonder it’s late.

A nice cool(er) day today and it’s a much needed change. My pores have stretch marks from the hot weather we’ve had the last few weeks. It’s a good excuse to enjoy a beer at 2:00 in the afternoon.

Since I’ve been here I have been having watery eyes, sneezing and sniffles from my allergies most of the time even though I take allergy meds. I sure won’t miss that.

It has been so hot here I have not been able to do any walking so I gotta get back into that when I get home. I have been busy doing things but not getting the exertion in I need to have.

There’s been a change of plans as far as getting a different vehicle. I’m gonna keep driving my Avalanche a while longer. It’s going to work out better and that’s what matters. It’s paid for, insurance is reasonable, and it still runs good.

I have spent a lot of money on repairing it over the last few months so I will probably just take it in and have it checked over to see if anything else needs worked on.

That means that I’ll be back on a plane to head home in a few days. I was really looking forward to a road trip but I’ll get home faster by flying and will not have to worry about smoke and fires. It also means I won’t be bringing my dog home either. I DID get some road trips in the last few weeks so that will do until I get home and can get the trailer out.

I may have to do a night in a campground with hookups in order to flush the RV antifreeze out of the water system and fill the tanks, but I’m hoping to be figuring out an alternative to doing that. It’s a bit expensive staying in a campground just to do that but if that is what I gotta do to take care of it then that’s what I gotta do.

I have seen this bug around here called a robber fly that looks like a giant mosquito. They wait around and snag other flying insects out of the sky and have been known to even go after hummingbirds! WTF?!?! They don’t seek out humans to bite, but if you mess with one you’re gonna come away with a painful experience. After my encounter with the dobsonfly I’m not real interested in doing that again.
