She Can See Clearly Now . . .

I was at the auto repair place at 8am this morning. Unfortunately, I didn’t ask the right question yesterday when I ask what time they open. I should have ask what time they could get started on my truck.

Instead I showed up at 8am, and they finally opened at about 8:20. Then I found out the mechanic didn’t show up until 9. And after he had his coffee and donuts, he finally got to work about 9:30

I could have slept another hour and a half!

Plus, to make things even better, the heater had gone out in the shop and the waiting area, so inside it wasn’t much warmer than the 38 degrees it was outside.

Finally heading home, I had the heater in the truck running full blast trying to get warm, and didn’t get the chill off until I got back to the rig.

A little later, Jan and I headed out for some errands, but first up was dinner at the new  Quaker Steak and Lube down in the Victory Lakes area. Before this, we’ve only encountered Quaker Steak up north, so we were happy to find one down in this area now.

After our meal, we drove up to the Sam’s Club on El Dorado to pick up Jan’s new glasses, and drop off the prescriptions we got yesterday at the doctor’s. A few of them we want now, but most of them we just wanted in the system so we can pick them as we travel.

Jan was really happy to get her new glasses since the coating was coming off her old ones, making it hard to see.

Wrapping up, it’s hard to believe that we only have 4 more days here before we leave for Tucson this coming Sunday.

And so much to still do.
