Missive #28 Published 29 January 2023

I finally got out of RV City on Friday a little before noon. The roof coating work created a very dirty Desperado so I scheduled a wash and wax by the mobile crew that have done it the past couple of years.

I am now starting my third day at RV City. The plan was that I would arrive on the 25 at 9:00 am and they would coat Desperado's roof that day and I would leave by 5:00 pm. So much for plans.

This customer review says what I have to say about the book. I was seriously considering NOT reading the other two books in the series until I read this review. I'll now give The Divine Invasion a chance.

I read all of Pepe's articles that I see on Strategic Culture but most or these were first published in Asia Times. Good articles that are recommended.

Starting last Thursday morning the low temperatures here have been 24, 26, 21 & 22°. WE might see a low in the 30s tomorrow morning but there is a forecast for rain and more snow. Then we will probably get another three mornings like these past four.

It is winter again here. The low this morning was 26° which is the first day in a week of forecast lows to be in the 20s. We could see a low in the upper teens next Tuesday, not good news.

The morning walks in these colder temperatures are going to be shorter for that reason. Maybe increase the noon and afternoon walk distances a little; or maybe not.

Patches is climbing the stairs better these past few days. I have also added a third walk for her. The same .3-.4 miles that she has been doing twice a day for the past few weeks. She is more her 'normal' self in the morning, that is to say she is pulling on the leash rather than me dragging her along behind us. She still doesn't do her morning dance when I get up but she is more active in the morning than before she started taking the pain pills. A happier dog.

I have had an eventful week with the left eye cataract surgery on Monday then the first post op appointment on Tuesday. When I got back to the Park from that appointment I found that I had no 12v to the outlet where I recharge all my 12v watches and the E-collar for Erik.
