Nice and HOT the past couple of days. Really really nice (for me). Me and the Dog did what we do yesterday after mail run and have stayed that way, except for mail run today, since. I think we really need to live “down south” someplace. There are “colonies” for people like me; I think mine would be on the Moon. (With any kind of luck!)
Unfortunately, our Cooler has gone offline and won’t do anything except grunt at me every once-in-awhile. No cooling and little fan. Tried calling the HVAC place but they were busy. Took a message and told me they’d call back. They haven’t. So tomorrow I’ll call one of their competitors. Already have their numbers written down.
SWMBO is home and trying to chill. It’s gotten a LOT cooler since the Sun went behind the trees.
And I’m rambling. I hate when I do that.
Took a drive to Rialto, Calif to visit my (step-) Mom that I hadn’t seen in about 37 years. On the way back we stopped by Fairfield, Calif to visit with my Sister that I hadn’t seen in even longer. Both visits were great if way too short.
Left at zero-dark-thirty (0500) Wednesday morning. Made it to Sacramento, Ca. Nice ride. Lot’s of smoke in the air starting around Medford, Or. Fires in Calif. Can see why Calif would burn off the map with all the dried grass on the hills.
Got up and left early Thursday and arrived in Rialto, Calif about 1400. Nice to see my Step-Mom! After sitting at her house a couple of hours we took her to dinner for a coupleof hours. Closer to three.
Glad to be inside though since it was 198 degrees outside! Phew even for me!
Up early Friday morning and headed off to Fairfield, Calif to see my Sister. Got a room at the Inn on Travis AFB; nice! $60 instead of $130+. Took a lot of nice pictures of their airplane exhibits and SWMBO.
Got to see my Sister (first time in about 40 years) for only a little while since she had to get ready and go to work. Nice visit though. I could probably hang around with her.
Then we headed North. Spent another night in a motel (Days Inn. Crappy.) and made it back home about 1730 last night (Sunday).
Tired! Holy Crap tired! And had trouble falling asleep. Finally took my medicine when we got home and was up pissing until late.
All in all: Nice trip seeing stuff I hadn’t seen since forever (last time I was in Calif was 1993 when we moved up here) with my schweetie. She is the best traveling companion!
Anywho, we’ll catch up with more later.
