Morning folks. By the time you read this I'll be on my way to Algodones, Mexico. I'd like to be able to say that it is going to be a 'pour me another tequila, Sheila' trip, but the truth, as usual, is much more boring. In fact since I don't have a passport I won't even cross the border.
My friend and neighbor here in the park goes down once a month to buy his medications, so I'm going along to do some shopping at Wally-World in Yuma. He'll drop me off at the store, and while he does his chores I can get started, so that I don't hold him up.
While a simple thing like a trip to the store is no biggy for most people, after 4 months in this (don't say it Bob) I'm looking forward to finally getting to a real(?) store. I'm still not sorry that I didn't tow the car down, because other than running to Yuma or Parker to shop, there's nothing here I need it for. Besides the Quad makes more sense, I can do so much more with it than I could with the car.
As for how I'm feeling, well, I'm not yet ready to run a 4-minute mile, but I never wanted to do that anyway. The good news is that other than more pain than I need, I'm not worse. I'm hoping that as the weather finally starts to warm up I can get out on the trails with my trusty steed. Been a while since I checked on my pet rattler, hope he made it okay while I've been holed up. Hey, everybody needs a friend, right?
Hope you're all well, have a good weekend, and I'll see you Monday.
