No journal was written yesterday so I'll just list our memories of two very strange days and let you have your chuckles.

Yesterday began with a drug run to WalMart. For a guy who is both clean and sober, how could I spend $700.00 on drugs? Why are Linda's free?

Back to campground to wait for the mobile RV repairman at eleven. Well eleven turned into three and he got right to work. Unfortunately, after his work was semi complete, he discovered a crack in one of the tanks that he had overlooked before, and he has no idea how to fix it. Little does he know how fortunate he is that I'm a changed man. After a very brief discussion, he came to believe that his services were no longer desired.

Today began with an early trip to Camping world only to be referred somewhere else. We now have an appointment with what we believe to be a reputable firm tomorrow morning. Hopefully they can finish in time for us to sleep in our own bed tomorrow night.

Then a trip to Hoover Dam and a tour with two or three million Moms, Dads and kids on spring break. A fantastic feat of engineering and construction.

Back to WalMart for another $100 and Linda just told me that there are more to come.

The biggest almost tragedy occurred when I was downloading pictures. Yes, I deleted the entire trip. A lot of whining, a bit of self pity and a few lucky keystrokes found the entire file. Whew!

We've extended our stay here through Monday and hope to do some of the things we planned before the trailer repair saga interfered.
