Clicking the pics might make this poor dog suffer a little less.
The poor family dog that was left in my charge barely made it through the night. Clinging to a tattered sweater that held the last remaining scent of the family that he loved. Shaking from cold and loneliness, with no one to comfort him he waited through the night clinging to the hope that his family would one day return, and he would again experience the love and laughter of the family that meant everything to him.... And so he waited, and waited.
I did some laundry this morning since I'm the only one at the house except the dog. It sure is great using my daughter's washing machine, the thing is huge, and it doesn't even have an agitator in the middle of the machine, just a giant stainless steel bowl where you put all your dirty clothes. When I'm paying to wash clothes at a laundromat, my laundry bag will fill up at least three machines. But my laundry bag full of dirty clothes disappears into the bulbous silver belly of this washing machine like a villain in an adventure movie falling into a volcano.
I'm not sure how the whole system works without an agitator to beat on the clothes like women have done for a thousand years anytime they were near a rocky river, but it works, and my clothes come out clean enough for me.... But I'm not all that picky.
I've taken a few more things out of the bronco, but I don't really have a place to put all the stuff, so I'm just piling up things in the Arctic Fox. I can see logistics will be a real problem in schlepping all my stuff from one RV to another with no place for any of it to stay permanently... as yet.
After the holidays, I might head over to the Salida area and visit a large RV dealer there that specializes in truck campers, both new and used. In a way, I don't want to buy a truck camper from a dealer because you know you're going to be hosed at the get-go, but I'm not seeing anything I can use from a private sale; there is just not a lot of choices out there.
A year or so ago when people were buying up every RV in sight they apparently also bought up every truck camper in sight leaving slim pickens for someone like me. I'm quite sure in a couple of years a lot of those first time RVers are going to be selling some of those RVs they never really wanted in the first place, and that will be a great time to pick up a bargain. But I have fallen head over heels in love with the highly mobile lifestyle a truck camper offers and I'm in no mood to wait.
This is a very rare Peruvian flowering chlamydia. Normally they only grow in Peruvia but this one seed, probably attached itself to the sandal of a Peruvian illegal alien, made it across the border and into Colorado,
