Quartzsite, AZ High 70 Low 42
The weather finally cooperated and we got to have our first campfire. By the time I’m getting around to posting this blog we have actually had three campfires.
Our group has grown to 17 rigs. Everyone has been busy wandering from vendor to vendor trying to help our the economy.
And the Dixon’s – well they’ve been busy learning new things. Jan is showing Jim where the hot water electric switch is located. Jan was very proud of herself that she knew something Jim didn’t know.
Karen came over to visit me and we ended up getting locked in the RV. Everyone else was outside working on Jan and Bill’s generator and couldn’t hear us screaming for help. Not that we were in danger, we just wanted to get out the door. I tried calling Jim but he couldn’t hear his phone. Thank goodness John heard Karen calling. The door would open from the outside but not from the inside. Jim had lots of help getting the door apart.
Jim is pointing at the piece that is broken. We were really lucky. There was a small RV parts store in town that had exactly what he needed and the door works once again.
Scooter’s ear was healing so nicely we decided not to take her to the vet. But Skittlez got sick. She started wheezing and sneezing and then acted like she was gasping for breath. We headed for the Vet’s yesterday morning. We got there at 8:45 because they are supposed to open at 9:00.There were already five other folks in front of us and the office didn’t open until 9:25. We had no choice but to wait.
Animal Clinic in Quartzsite
When we finally got in to see the Vet, he was really a nice guy. He had owned the Animal Hospital in Blythe, CA and opened the office here in Q two afternoons a week. When he retired he opened the clinic in Q during the mornings from 9:00 to 12:00.
He checked out our Skitz and determined that she has a respiratory infection. Gave her an anti-inflammatory and antibiotic shot and gave us some antibiotic pills for her to take and we have to go back either Monday or Tuesday for another check up. She is doing better. She doesn’t wheeze as much and only acts like she can’t breath when she gets too excited or wound up.
Stay tuned for more adventures from the desert.
