Temperature 78 Degrees
You’re In The Army Now
Gooooooooooooood Morning World!
Not a bad morning at all. Ms Barabara was up at the crack of dawn, well before me. Thus, at 7 am she went to the office to sign us in and to let our service advisor know we were here. That’s when she discovered that she was out sick for the week. Oh boy, we thought here we go.
Then surprise, surprise at 7:30 am someone, another service advisor, was at our rig to go over our work order. Well, we thought this was a good sign. Perhaps Elvira would really go into the shop early this morning.
With hopes high we left for Ms Barbara’s doctor’s apppointment. We honestly believed that when we returned we would find Elvira in the shop.
Doctor’s appointment over we started for home and that is when we learned that we had enlisted in the Army. Anyone know what their favorite saying is? Sure you know, it is hurry up and wait. We received a phone call informing us that they would not be able to start work until sometime in the afternoon. OK, that’s still today.
Back home we ate lunch and wondered just exactly what did they mean by this afternoon? Next phone call and we were told by 1:30 pm. Really?
Yipee, 1:30 pm and Eric was at our rig. But wait a minute, he came in a golf cart. How can you drive that and Elvira back to the shop. Maybe he was going to have me drive the rig into the shop? Nope, he simply came to see what had to be done and to get a game plan together.
Tonight this is where we stand. First, to their credit they are really good at communicating with you. They do keep in touch. Second, Eric is a certified tech and has ten years of experience. We have a veteran in charge of our work. Third, he informed us that Elvira would go into the shop tomorrow at 7:30 am. He had assembled a crew to help him get the washer/dryer out and assist with the rest of the work. Things are looking good – at least for now.
That was our day on The Road of Retirment. Honestly, I’m surprised at how well things are moving along. Maybe, just maybe we’ll get out of here by Wednesday. Maybe. At least we have a good site to sit and wait. So, tomorrow morning we’ll watch Elvira head off to the shop and we’ll head off to doctor’s appointments. Hopefully, when we return in the afternoon all or most all of the work will be done. We remain optimistic.
Appreciate your checking in with us today. We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.
These are the voyages of Elvira and her two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.
See you on down the road!
