Saying Goodbye, A Boat Ride and Getting More Stuff Done

Apache Junction, AZ  High 98  Low 71

Still checking off our to-do list. We went to Dianna’s house on our way to get the oil changed in the truck. She needed help disconnecting her Direct TV and hooking up an over-the-air antenna.

Saturday morning, Mickey and Ginny headed north to Show Low. Didn’t get very far. About 40 miles out they blew a tire on their RV. Ended up having to come back to Mesa to get four new tires and then tried again. They are now settled in their spot in Show Low but as you can see, some repair work needs to be done.

Saturday night we met Key for dinner at Garcia’s. He is leaving Phoenix on Tuesday and we wanted to say goodbye. Forgot to take the camera.

Got the fridge defrosted. Renewed our Elks membership. Jim finished waxing the rig. And so on.

This morning Jim needed to run the gas out of the carburetor in the boat and get stabil in it. The girls and I decided we wanted to go with him.

We had a great time – at least I know Jim and I did. The girls – not too sure.

Still have more items on the list but it’s getting shorter.

  16. So if you run the gas out of the boat do you have to paddle back to shore? Not sure I'd want to go along for that trip. :)

  18. The girls look so sweet in their little life vests! Well, here I am at Storrie Lake. Not my plan at all, but here is where I ended up a month early. If you make it up here, I hope to see you. :)
