Been a good few days in the let up of the heat, though they say the temps will rise again. I know 80's isn't usually termed warm, but after high 90's and 100's it feels great. I feel so for the animals in this weather. It just scorches their food supply. My sister Rhonda put in a garden this year and have been watering faithfully. It is doing quite well until......the deer discovered it. It seems the bean plants have succumbed as their dinner. Sherry has seen them in their back lot looking for something. I think they are out around here because we're so close to the water and they at least can drink.
Have all the camping laundry done and put back in place. It's like a complete separate household in there, with sheets, towels, kitchen supplies. We usually just have to double check to make sure all supplies are okay and add our clothes and food. Then we're good to go.
I had a real good experience with a store this week. We have a tv in the camper that is of the old kind. Big, bulky, and heavy. Jack just hates putting it down and back up. Well we went to Shopko to have a prescription filled and I decided to get a new one that is smaller, lighter and up to date. Picked out the one we wanted, took the slip to the cashier who called to have one brought up, paid and waited. Pretty soon her phone rang and the fellow "Bruce" said the only one they had back there was a return as something was wrong with it. Since they weren't getting anymore did I want the display one. Sure. He said it would take a few minutes to box it all up. Soon the phone rang again and Bruce said that one was also not working right. The audio was messed up and to refund my credit card. Now they could have just as easily gave me either one and left me to find out myself. Consequently we haven't replaced the old yet. Still looking for just the right size we have in mind.
A little side story to the tv. While I paid and waited, Jack went and got the car to pull up to the door and wait for me. As I said I waited first for the one tv, then the other. I tried to call him to pull out of the way until we came out, BUT, as usual he didn't turn his phone on. Finally he comes in to see what the holdup was and received this "I have been trying to call you". He checks, grins and turns it on. I guess this is my Wednesday rant as I get so frustrated about this. Whenever I have to call him I get his voicemail to leave a message. Especially as it's the secondary number for his Mother's Lifeline. He forgets to turn it on probably 85% of the time. It just makes me go GRRRRRRRRRRR!
Enjoy what's left of the day.
