In an effort to help me out however, they DID provide a name and phone number of a very reputable person who COULD do the oil changes while we are parked at the fairgrounds in Indio. At least that's ONE down ... and I can make an appointment with them in Quartzsite for the remainder of the work. It's all becoming a scheduling nightmare!! I'm not good at that any more ... the best part about being retired is I don't HAVE to be anywhere!! After all that hard work trying to schedule repairs, I made this fluffy peanut butter pie just to relax from all the brain work!!
In other news, as I stepped out my back door this morning, my friends are B A A A C K!! Overnight about 20 turkey buzzards have returned home to Buzzards Roost. It was fun to sit outside (freezing in the cold wind) and watch them ride the currents. They are HUGE, swooping up on the winds and almost crashing into each other.
They actually fly in a big circle, always counter-clockwise. The other little birds around aren't very happy, most of them sitting on my gutters having discussions about how to get rid of the interlopers. Time to get out my long lens for a few portraits! This is definitely a sign winter is finally here.
The turkeys are out of the freezer and will spend four days thawing in the fridge. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I can't wait for turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy!!! In the meantime, my friend Chris will be over today to make our annual supply of Pumpkin Butter.
