“DAD, IS THERE SOMETHING YOU HAVEN’T TOLD ME ABOUT YOUR TRIP TO WICKENBURG THIS MORNING”
Noticed a few days ago the right passenger side tire on the Jeep appeared to look soft so checked the pressure and it was down. Taking a deep breath I blew the tire back up to 33 pounds but noticed the pressure was down again this morning.
VIEW FROM MY BEDROOM WINDOW AND NO THOSE TWO SAGUAROS ARE NOT LEAING OVER, IT’S MY WIDE ANGLE CAMERA LENS DISTORTING THE PHOTO
ABOVE AND BELOW SAGUARO CACTUS PHOTOS WERE TAKEN FROM MY COMPUTER CHAIR IN MY BEDROOM AND THE BOTTOM PHOTO SHOWS A NEW SAGUARO ARM BEGINNING TO GROW
PHOTO AT LEFT IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY CACTUS PLANTS I PLANTED OVER THESE PAST FOUR AND A HALF YEARS
In a rare move I left Pheebs at home and headed straight away to Wickenburg Tire on Tegner Street, Wickenburg. They took me right in and found a leak at the valve stem. What is it with leaky valve stems anyway!! Same problem we had with the tire that finally blew out west of Albuquerque NM last March. With that leaky valve stem repaired it was down the street to O’Reilly Auto parts for a couple quarts of motor oil. Quick stop at Bashas for a jug of milk then swung south on highway 93 to see if Burger King was open yet and it was. Well I didn’t really feel like a Whopper but because I was there and curious to see their new digs I went in and ordered me up a Whopper anyway. Plus a coffee. Whopperized myself in the parking lot and drank the coffee on my way back to Congress. Burger King does build a better burger than McDonalds but McDonalds brews a better cup of coffee than Burger King.
WICKENBURG’S BURGER KING IS NOW OPEN
We were due to have our septic tank inspected this morning but an early phone call said the driver was sick and could they do it Tuesday. If I had to do that job I would be sick too.
A FEW VIEWS AROUND THE PROPERTY
Still more puttzing around with small stuff today but things are steadily coming together. Right now the ‘waiting’ is the hardest part………….
A passenger train is creeping along, slowly. Finally it creaks to a halt. A passenger sees a conductor walking by outside. "What's going on?" she yells out the window. "Cow on the track!" replies the conductor. Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace. Within five minutes, however, it stops again. The woman sees the same conductor walking by again. She leans out the window and yells, "What happened? Did we catch up with the cow again?"
Christopher Columbus was a shrewd deal maker. He left Spain not knowing where he was going and upon arriving never knew where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been and did it all on borrowed money.
Why did the blonde freeze to death at the drive-in? She went to see "Closed for the Season."
A man and his wife are sitting at the kitchen table, which is next to the window. The man's name is Rudolph, and since he is Russian, people call him "Rudolph the Red." Rudolph looked out the window and said to his wife, "Oh look honey, it's raining outside." She looks out as well and says, "No, I think that is snow." He looks at her and says, "Rudolph the red knows rain dear."
The Whopper is to favourite burgers when we do them and Mc D's had great coffee . we are on the same wavelength there.ReplyDelete
Good luck again with wrapping things up soon.
How cool that one of your beautiful saguaro is getting a new arm:)ReplyDelete
Do you really believe that Pheebs couldn't tell you had a Whopper?ReplyDelete
It is strange enough. In 1969 we flew to the moon, but we still can't build a valve stem which is not leaking. Some things never change.ReplyDelete
Best not to return home with burger-breath when Pheebs was left behind! Love the new header. Still can't believe what a difference you guys have made in that property. Someone is very lucky to be calling it theirs pretty soon.ReplyDelete
We had a slow leak in one of the Escape's Goodyears. Turned out to be a piece of wire that had driven through the tread. How does THAT happen?ReplyDelete
Glad the stem is fixed...but now you owe Pheeb's a trip to BK. 😉
