MAY 8, 21 .. QUIET TIME IN OUR CONDO .. NO TRUCK YET

Saturday the 8th of May. We still don’t have our truck back from the shop and we have no idea of when we will have it nor do we have any diagnosis as to its leaking gas tank and a resolution thereof.

I have gotten onto my bicycle and made two trips to COSTCO to shop and also peddled to our Post Office to post and to check mail and buy stamps.

And ?? 

Below are two links to two blogspot posts that I published dated May 8 (Part 1) and May 7 (Part 2) showing Oatman, Arizona, and its burros, along with some desert scenery, and Cool Springs, Arizona.

We both feel happy to be back and settling into our home base.

MAY 4, 21 .. BACK HOME IN ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

Well, The Truth Being Told, we were Back Home In Anchorage Alaska, yesterday (Monday the 3rd of May 2021) an hour or so before midnight.

We were both a tad past being exhausted. Two flights, into and out of three airports (Las Vegas, Seattle, Anchorage) with all that entails is exhausting. A mere bottle of water in Seattle cost five (5) U.S. Dollars. I would NOT pay them going to a drinking fountain instead.

Today, Tuesday the 4th of May, I walked over (a nice 40 minute walk) to where our Chevrolet Suburban stays when we are out of Alaska. He would not start. LONG-Story-Short, I called Patti who called our road service insurance firm and, after about three hours (in Patti’s words she was on the verge of tears with the frustration of getting a tow arranged), he was aboard a tow truck and off to our local shop. 

My last words to Detroit Tiger Tom as we entered the Las Vegas, Nevada, airport yesterday afternoon were : “Tom. One of these trips will be my last ever in this lifetime. Will this be that final trip?” Only The Shadow and God and Father Time will know the answer. This instant I am just about totally spent. I did not need to have another towing of our vehicle to deal with.

Still Smiling, any problems, any issues I am having, are minor and insignificant when compared with more than one other friend who are literally, facing life ending challenges.
