Tuesday there was fun. Our friend Greg, who we met in France in 2002, came to Arizona to see people, and we were fortunate enough to be on the list. We like Greg a lot. That's him on the left. I don't know why it is that I never think to get a picture of the front of people. We went to one of the new El Guero's for lunch. The original store is pretty funky, but there is no air conditioning. Did I mention that it's been really hot?
Here is the Sonoran Dog. There is a bacon wrapped hot dog in there, smothered in beans, tomatoes mayo and mustard. That is a soft roll holding on to the whole works. We haven't been there since the last time Greg was here, which was three or four years ago. One must work out prior to eating such a thing. If you're in Tucson, go there, and get thee a Sonoran Dog.
Have you ever been in an RV park with park models? Ever wondered how they level them? This is how. One thick piece of wood, and then a couple of shims. I often wonder how long until the wood compresses or rots. It always seems somewhat precarious to me.
The bus goes in to the collision repair place Monday. We've got an Airbnb starting tomorrow. This is such a giant pain in the butt. It's not like going on vacation for a few days, we're moving out. We are having to take all the meds out since the bus will be outside in the sun with no air conditioning. Heat is hard on the drugs. We'll also have to take all the food out of the frig because we're turning it off. Then we have to clean the inside of the frig which will hopefully keep the odor down. They won't guarantee it'll stay on power, so rather than risk over drawing the batteries, we're turning if off. All food taken to the Airbnb will then have to be thrown away, because it'll take 12 hours to cool the refrigerator once it's turned back on when the work is over.
Today we got up really early so we could cover the storage bays in plastic. Do I look happy here? No, why no I do not. Note the tan line, I would just like to say I'm using sunscreen, but this happens anyway.
Still life under plastic.
Butterfly on a lantana.
Here is an excellent article on how the right intends to stack the court systems with conservative judges. Due to the Republicans' blocking many of President Obama's nominees, there are a lot of seats to fill. The effects of this administration are going to be felt for decades.
For those that missed it, here is the president with Prime Minister Merkel after the press had asked for a handshake for a photo op. Too bad the leader of the free world had to return to Germany.
Other than being too hot, and too aghast at people justifying cutting Meals on Wheels and school lunch programs, and being pissed off about them bending my bay doors, everything else is fine.
