I love to watch roadrunners scurry across the desert floor with their tails whipping up and down. I'm NOT a fan of their diet however. They can eat all the bugs they want, but leave the baby birds alone.
In other news, the dash air on my rig was fixed, but parts to replace the hitch wiring did not come in. Turns out, according to the radio, yesterday was almost a record setting day for heat. No kidding ... it was 110 on my patio, 110 in my car and 115 in the rig. How do I know that? I couldn't get ahold of anyone, so I drove down to see what was happening.
I have become really good friends with the gal who runs the cashier/scheduling office. I COULD have sent Zach a text message had I not accidentally erased his number. I hate it when I do that! Honestly, I thought it would magically appear like all those scam calls, but not this time!!
With parts not in and my rig sitting outside in the sun, completely closed up, he suggested I could take her home. Even if the parts came in today, it wouldn't be fixed until Monday. They brought her to the front and I went inside.
OMG it was HOT! I grabbed the fridge door handle to see if it was still on and I actually burned my hand from the heat, like grabbing a hot pot off the stove. YIKES!!! I hooked up quickly, turned on the overhead fans and headed off home.
The good news is the dash air blasted away the entire time ..... COLD. YAY!!! The other good news is at this point my bill is only $300 which I don't even have to pay until the work is complete. In the meantime, I heard a very loud BEEP.
Really? It's the CO2 monitor. Good grief ... it must be because it's been completely closed up. I hit the button. BEEP!! It beeped all the way home. Once parked back in her cave and having cooled down a tad, I decided see why the monitor was continually irritating me with a beep so loud I could hear it INSIDE my house.
I grabbed a flashlight and laid down on the floor to read what it said. Two green flashes followed by two red flashes and BEEP ..... means it has expired ... died from Covid 19 I'm sure. Sadly, it continues to tell me it's dead with BEEP BEEP BEEP!!
I finally got Zach's number and sent him a message that it needed to be replaced. No problem he said, he thought they kept those in stock. Let's hope so. Until then, I've got at last three days of BEEP left before it can be fixed. I may just have to get out my screwdriver and side cutters!
In the meantime, I'll be locked in the house with my AC running 24/7. This is the prediction for the week. Someone forgot to tell Arizona that this is monsoon season ..... time for all that rain!!! The radio predicted 111 today, so I should be happy it may only get to 108!!
I think I'll park my patio chair INSIDE so I can look out at the water station all day. The outside temp at 5 am was 81. It's a good day to be socially distant!!
