Tomorrow we are driving to Denver to spend the night and then Sunday we fly out to North Carolina for a family reunion. My sister, Evi, is flying in from Costa Rica where she lives. We will arrive in Atlanta first then pick up our rental car and then meet my sister’s plane…she is a nervous flier. Then we will drive to my brother, Mike’s house in North Carolina….it’s about a two hour drive. We won’t arrive till after 9 p.m. That makes for a long drive so we decided to go to Denver the day before so it won’t make for too long a day on Sunday. Denver is a four hour drive north from Alamosa….that’s enough driving for one day for us.
Yesterday Jim drove down to Tres Piedras and met Teddy Abeyta and handed over Poncho for them to keep for us while we are away. Roberta called this evening and said Poncho went along with Teddy to herd cattle today and did a fine job. Roberta said Poncho could check off “cattle wrangler” off his Bucket List….we laughed!!!
If you are not on Facebook than you haven’t heard yet….our refrigerator died …. we need a new cooling unit. Happily our local wonderful RV Tech, Matt Harris, just arrived at South Fork Campground where is headquartered for the summers, so we are in good hands. Matt came over yesterday afternoon and after calling Rich Deacon to drive down here from Monte Vista to help the three guys were able to move the fridge out of the RV and on to Matt’s tailgate to take back to South Fork.
The cooling unit has been ordered and will be delivered to the South Fork Campground while we are gone. Matt will install it and run the fridge for a couple of days to make sure it is working well. When we return to Colorado we’ll move up to South Fork Campground for a couple of days and Matt will reinstall the fridge into our RV.
Thanks to Rich for coming down to help move the fridge…thanks to Heinz for letting us put our frozen foods in his and Angela’s freezer at 11 o’clock at night…thanks to Salai for taking my fresh veggies since I didn’t have anywhere to keep them….thanks to The Abeytas for kenneling Poncho till we get back. It Takes A Village to take care of us!!! We are blessed to have such wonderful friends to help out in a time of need.
I probably will not blog while we are away as I’m not taking our computer….so hang tight till I get back end of next week.
Remember, you are loved.
