This morning after a big breakfast I decided to head into Yuma and get an oil change for the jeep, stop by Walmart for some groceries and then check out the Verizon store.
It took quite a while to get into the stall for the oil change and then there were four cars ahead of me for the car wash. It was after noon before I was out of there.
Then I put Verizon into my phone’s Google Maps and headed for the big mall on highway 95 on the west side of town, about 6 miles up the road.
The Verizon store was very busy. In fact this whole town seems busy. Traffic everywhere, but not unmanageable like in a big city. Yuma is spread out. Took me a half hour to get a rep and then we started dealing.
I have been looking at the Verizon store online so I was pretty sure what I wanted. I got a red 32g Droid Turbo smartphone made by Motorola for Verizon. This thing makes my AT&T Galaxy S III look small. Got the Edge plan on a 2 year contract and the 10 gig data plan. Also got a clip case that hooks it to my belt.
I was so tired of thinking by the time I got out of the store, I decided to go to Walmart another day and headed home to make sure I could use the phone and text out at Mittry Lake.
Sure enough, I am back in the texting business. Don’t use the phone much, but with a 95 year old Dad you never know when you will need it.
Lettuce fields and I think that is Castle Rock in the Dome Mountains to the east.
Ready to watch Gold Rush now and call it a night.
See you later.
