Yuma –> home

Saturday. Wanting to depart early for an all day drive home. But the scooter battery is still not charged, needing replacement. Neighbor Don and Bob finally returned from Don’s Sat. dental visit and helped my to put Scoot onto the trailer without power.

By the time I fueled and left the area, it was noon. I had to drive the last hour in the dark. Dim moho lights (gotta fix that) and my eyesight made for a treacherous drive through Sierra Vista. Thank God I had the GPS, for without it I would have gotten very lost.

Algodones Mx visit

Monday/Tuesday Nov 8/9 visited dentist with no appointment. Got a crown re-glued and impressions made for new partial

Today, Friday, back to dentist for new partial. It feels like a good fit.

When I tried to start scoot, I discovered that the trunk was open all night and the battery was 100% dead. It is currently on the charger and the trunk light has been permanently removed.

Not having time to deal with the dead battery before the dental appointment, I had to walk the 2 1/4 miles to the border. I needed that to let me know how much I need to get more exercise. I tried 3 or 4 folks at the border crossing to get a ride back to the casino, but all had an excuse, except for one that said ok then disappeared around a corner because his wife had not met him at the crossing. So I muttered “wait until you need help, karma will get you” and started hoofing it.

An acquaintance appears

Today as I was stepping into Barth I heard a horn toot. A fellow in a sleek new class B motorhome pulled up and said something like “Excuse the horn. I recognized you and wanted to get your attention before you got inside.”

After a few pleasantries I finally said “How do I know you?”

“You are Garry P. aren’t you?” was the reply. “I recognized your RV and that strange two-front-wheel scooter. I read your blog.”

Oh. The blog. I thought no one read it! After an introduction to put us on equal terms, Don and brother Bob revealed that they are here for the same reason I am.

So I guess that we are now acquaintances.
