I spent a good deal of the morning scratching the puppies backs ... something they love and think I don't do enough of!! As the temperature rose quickly to 90 degrees by 10:00, they passed out under the ceiling fan.
I was trying to scratch my hitch itch, it being the end of May and I'm still stuck in River City. With my recall appointment now firmly in place, I'm just biding my time until lift off day. In the meantime, I'm making list after list of things to get done in the next few weeks.
When it was finally time for scratching that Bingo itch, I left for the Magic Kingdom where Prince Charming bought me a coke at the bar. It's always good strategy to meet ahead and unite in the face of angry peasants. A huge glass of wine would probably have made it better when the infernal machine decided to "spring" one on me.
All my help disappeared into the woodwork. That happens often. Once they get around the maddening crowds, they suddenly disappear, never to return. Maybe they met THEIR Prince Charming, but for whatever reason, we never see them again. The Castle Lawyer has been on vacation and hopefully will return TODAY!!
That meant I was alone in counting and running the black box at breakneck speed, when it spit out a "received on account" instead of a "pay out"!! The more I tried to correct it, the deeper I sunk into the quicksand, to the faint giggles of the infernal machine. Finally, at night's end when my brain was kicked in gear by the thought of staying until it was correct, it dawned on me how to fix it. I balanced!! One more night in the books as I scratched those now SIX little bumps!!
I've got a busy day today ... pick up mail, pick up quilts, lunch with a friend and either wash the RV or sanitize the water tank. Neither of those labor-related tasks float my boat, but are necessary to get me out of the heat of the Central Valley, expected to be in the 100's this week and up to 105 on Friday. THAT has made my hitch VERY itchy.
