Drove 288 miles yesterday to Amarillo, Texas. We are staying at the Elks Club here. Very nice place to stay. Got smart this time and backed up real close to the fence and made sure our electrical cord would reach before setting down the rig. Last October we had to re-attach and move back cause the cord wouldn’t reach….hat when that happens.
Poncho seems to be doing OK now. What? You didn’t know? Oh, I forgot to mention it. While at Shreveport Elks Club there were some leftover plastic eggs filled with assorted candies. Jim had opened a few and took out the snack sized Kit-Kats, Twix and Milky Ways. I put them in the truck for a mid day snack and Poncho got a hold of three pieces of chocolate while we were buttoning up the rig to leave. After a while Jim noticed the wrappers when we stopped to stretch our legs several hours later. Too late for hydrogen peroxide (recommended remedy to make them vomit it up) so we just watched him. The night we were with the Lindas and Smeals, Poncho had a really bad night. He was lethargic. He wouldn’t sleep, Jim took him out four times, he drank volumes of water, he wouldn’t jump up the bed. At one point when Poncho was hardly breathing we just put our hands on him and prayed…it was that bad. Yesterday Poncho moped around and gradually got better and perked up and started being his old self again….thankfully!!!
For lunch yesterday I got into the rig while Jim was fueling up at a Love’s Travel Center and cut up some fruit, cheese, crackers and a piece of leftover chicken from Babe’s. When we hit the road again I passed pieces to Jim to eat as he drove. I felt like a mama bird feeding her youngin….a piece of cheese, a piece of apple, piece of chicken, a piece of banana. Of course Poncho had to have little bits in-between.
I made up a pot of beans before we left Betty’s so that’s what we had for dinner. Tasted real good.
I bought a new printer ink cartridge while at Betty’s and sure glad we did, cause last night we started printing out some of the paperwork our company sent us to read in preparation for our regional managers meeting next week. Budgets, revenues, maintenance requirements…it amounted to 100 pages at least….and I still have more to print. I’ll start reading it out loud to Jim as we travel today…yes, luckily I can read while riding.
We watched a little of American Idol and got to bed later than usual.
Off this morning to the Albuquerque area to stay at a casino RV park while we visit our daughters and grands for a couple of days. Oh, and maybe welcome our newest great-granddaughter, Zoey, who is due to be born soon.
Well, that was our day….how did your’s go????
Remember, you are loved.
