Woke up to another beautiful sunny morning around 8 o'clock and was up by 9 taking Yuma for his walk.
It was a little chilly still so decided I would turn on the Big Buddy I fixed yesterday but didn't turn on because it was so warm. I clicked and clicked the starter button and it wouldn't turn on. DARN! 😩
I disconnected the gas line and put a propane bottle on it and it started right up. First thought was the gas line may be clogged so took both ends off and blew air through it and put it back on and still wouldn't start.
Nick helped me to push the quick connect on tightly but when I pulled on it the fitting would slip back off. Then I noticed the fitting was so close to the wall of the heater it wasn't connecting completely so I bent the fitting away from the wall and pushed the quick connect fully in place where I couldn't pull it off and the heater started right up. Problem resolved for sure this time. By the time I was done, the sun had warmed up the MH so I didn't need it. 😊
By this time it was after 10 and I hadn't even put my coffee on so did that. Noticed my coffee cup was still half full laying in the sink so when the coffee was finished I poured fresh coffee over the old. They say day old coffee is the best!
I took one sip and spit it out. 😝 Tasted like soap. That's when Nick told me he had washed his hair in the sink the night before and that's why it tasted like soap. 😱😱 Oh my gosh! No wonder it tasted so bad.
Anyway, we got breakfast out of the way and laid in the warm sun for awhile. At 1:30 we headed for Palm Canyon finally.

I told Nick I had tried to climb up to them a number of years back but came up short. He asked if he could try and I said go for it! If I were his age I would.

We were home at 4:30 and I was bushed from the climb. Had dinner at 6 o'clock and rested for the rest of the evening.
While doing my blog, Yuma kept barking out the window. By this time it is 10 o'clock. I knew it was an animal trying to get to the tray under my grill because it has done it for the last few evenings.
