I’ve been on the road heading East for 12 days now (that’s including the time I spent in Deming) and have put 996 Miles behind me. With still over 1,500 Miles to go IF I follow Google and go the direct way – which I likely won’t because I wanna keep South (WARM) for as long as possible. G*R*O*A*N
While in Deming I visited DIANNE & TOM in their rig and noticed a knob on their screen door slide thing…
Here’s what they look like when you buy them.
WELL ! I had to keep up with those Jones’s you know and off I went to Wal-Mart to get some knobs for my screen sliders !
Had to get two as I have two doors. AND I got them to match the kitchen cupboard knobs. FANCY SMANCHY HUH !
p.s. I don’t use them !! LOL I still use the protruded part to open and close it.
While waiting in Deming for my Tire Monitor Sensors to arrive I decided to try and get a few layers of the ARIZONA DUST off my dash. I had a compass on there that no longer worked so I took it off.
Naturally there was some adhesive left so I applied nail polish remover carefully to a paper towel – like I’ve done a gazillion times in the past on various surfaces. But clearly not carefully enough as some of the nail polish remover spilled from the bottle onto the dash.
I wiped it off immediately but look at what it did to the dash !!!
I wiped it off several times and scrubbed. These ‘stains’ are NOT coming out !!! Someone PLEASE tell me that they will fade away in time ????
My neighbours one evening. A little close but they were quiet. Also camera shy ‘cause when I pointed the camera to take a picture they turned their heads.
After leaving Deming, NM my next stop was El Paso, TX. And you simply CANNOT stop in El Paso without going here…..
Oh yes, yes, yes I know !! I may have stopped there a time or two in the past but it’s such an amazing store.
Saying it is HUGE would be an understatement. Oh Byron, I was thinking of you.
And yet I left there EMPTY HANDED ! I know unbelievable huh ! Just goes to show how many HD’s I’ve stopped at over the last years and how much stuff I’ve acquired. Too Much !!
I found El Paso to have very aggressive drivers. You know – little boys driving big honkin’ trucks so they can feel like ‘men’. We all know the type I’m sure.
Bennie having a bad hair day. LOL
Today was a very STRESSFUL day driving and bone chilling cold with a High of only 52F/11C. Very high wind gusts also. PLUS something BANGING on the rig while driving that made me pull in three times to investigate. Will have to Blog about all that next time.
