Woke up at 7:30 this morning and it looks to be another bright sun shiny day! Little cool with a high of 64 but I'll take it. Yuma and I stayed in bed while I read the news.
Don't have much planned for the day. At 10 o'clock, Tom and I are heading into Belly Acres RV Park to fill up his water bladder and I wanted to tag along to learn how it is done. May just have to buy one for an emergency.
Yuma and I had our breakfast and I watched a little TV. Once the sun is out I have all the electricity I need but when the sun goes down it's a different story.
I am so glad I didn't take many pictures today. I accidently changed the settings to Tv and my pictures came out bland. I've got to remember to check the settings before I leave each day. One of these days I'll regret it.
We headed into Ajo with Tom's water bladder in the back of his Jeep. It is 4 ft by 3 ft and holds 40+ gallons of water. The idea behind this is to fill the bladder with drinking water and bring it back and pump it into his motor home. Much easier than taking the motor home to the water.
While waiting for the bladder to fill, Tom and Dennis the owner of Belly Acres had a great political discussion. I think they agreed but you can't tell from this picture :) The cost of the water is $5 whch is a good price.
|Tom's new friend|
He had purchased two 6 foot water hoses and bought fittings for the small 12 volt water pump that our old friend George had given him. He had wired an electric cable like a jumper cable with clamps to the pump so he could connect the clamps to the positive and negative battery posts to power the pump. Connected the two hoses and fired up the pump and wait for the water to transfer from the bag to the RV. Pretty slick operation.
I had left poor Yuma in the White Lion while we were gone so he was real happy when I got back. He made sure we hooked everything up properly.
After that Yuma and I came home to do some work around the place and a little resting too. My plans were to take Tom and Deb to the Darby Well cemetery around 3:30.
When the time arrived I drove there with them following and we walked around the very nice cemetery and read many of the markers. No pictures came out of this excursion, but I had been here a few days ago and took plenty for my blog. This was more for Tom and Deb.
After that we came home and Tom and Deb took the scenic tour around the mountain into Ajo.
I had forgotten to take meat out of the freezer again so I had a ham sandwich for dinner and some chip with dip. If I don't forget and eat meat every night the bread, cheese and ham slices will get stale so their is a secret reason for my forgetfulness :)
Soon, it will be time to fire up Genny for a couple of hours so my batteries can make it through the night. Watch a little TV and then hit the sack. Did make 6000 step today. And no call about my new batteries yet, so still waiting.
See you later.
