It's Panic Time In Vail!!

I'm   M  E  L  T  I  N  G   !!!

So .. wouldn't you know just when everything is going swimmingly, my air conditioning unit would die in the middle of the night.  When you're a newcomer, it's hard to decide who to call.  Here's hoping they can come quickly.  I've already turned on the air in the rig for the puppies and Jonathan and it's only 6:00 in the morning.

I'll let you know how it goes.


UPDATE:  Lucky for me, I had a Home Warranty included with the sale of the house.  After searching through my computer's memory banks, I finally found some documentation with a phone number.

Although I have to pay for a $65 service call and may have to wait two days for service, it will be covered under this warranty, even if they have to replace the entire unit.  YAY for Home Warranties!! Now it's just a waiting game!!  Hopefully they get everything repaired so I can be on my way at the end of this week, which was my plan.  Now that I have THAT under control, here's a few more pictures.


The sunrises here are just as spectacular as the sunsets!!
Poker last night was a great affair!  I met lots of new people and got reacquainted with some I had already known.  It's penny ante poker with a $5.00 buy-in.  I think we talked and ate more than we played poker, but it was a lot of fun.  I've never heard of so many different games before.  Seven card, five card, no peek, Woolworth or Baseball, Follow the Queen, the Good the Bad and the Ugly ... so many weird names!!  Although I lost, I only dropped $2.50.  Not bad for a great night of fun!!

I think my buddies followed me from California, as an entire group flew over the house yesterday.  Maybe they are just waiting to see if my air conditioning is fixed!!
These guys are around every day.  Roadrunners galore flit across the yard, especially when the sprinklers are on!!
This is the only time I've seen a pair, who seem to stick together.  Hopefully they don't pick up on little Lizzy the lizard living in the bushes below them!!
And the trains go by .... this is the second train I've seen, full of military tanks and gear heading East. See the dinner bell triangle in the corner?  A house warming gift from Pat Jones.  What could be more perfect for my new cowboy house?  I'm thinking maybe I'll ring it every time a train passes by.
It was a beautiful piece of moon stacked next to several bright stars last night, lulling me into peaceful bliss before the storm of no air conditioning this morning!!  I hate that I've inherited my mother's stress level!!  I like everything to go along smoothly.  Bumps are NOT my specialty!!
I've still got those special images of a critter I spotted yesterday.  They'll be first on the blog tomorrow.  In the meantime, I might as well commence with packing, since the air is ON in the rig!!

  1. Here's hoping it's something simple like a circuit breaker tripped.

    1. No such luck, although it IS only one year old, so it should be working great!!

  3. The Sand family has a rule that if you ring the bell you have to feed anyone who comes.

    1. That's awesome Linda ... I will remember to have lots of food around if I ring it. Guess I'll bypass the trains!!

  4. Sorry about the air conditioning! When we bought our house in NC we had no warranty. What we did have was a dead AC in the attic sitting in a pan full of water which was about to over flow. It's always something!
