Last night we had one of those spectacular desert sunsets that lights up the entire sky. If you've never seen one, there a sight to behold. You don't have to face the sunset, In every direction you look the sky looks just like the sky in this picture. It's something you never forget.
I went to Walmart this morning, Bullhead city has a really nice Walmart Supercenter, the only problem is it’s about 6 miles from here and you have to drive through what passes for the busiest part of Bullhead city to get to it.
On the way back from Walmart I accidentally spotted the Chinese buffet I had been thinking about going to and pulled into the parking lot at 11 o’clock, at least I think it was 11 o’clock. The restaurants name is Hibachi Buffet which sounds more like Japanese than Chinese to me but nonetheless the food was really good and I think $10 for all-you-can-eat is a bargain especially compared to the buffets across the river in Laughlin.
And speaking of across the river in Laughlin, it hadn’t occurred to me before but since the time change last night, I now have no idea what time it is. Normally the time change is just a minor inconvenience but now that I’m living on the border of Nevada and Arizona and Arizona doesn’t change their times and I don’t know if I had set my clocks for Pacific time or Arizona time, when I got into Arizona, I’m going to have to look it up on the Internet to figure out what time it is and if Arizona is the same or different, and maybe even give some serious thought to whether or not I even care
I know all that may sound odd to normal folks, and why can’t I just figure out what time it is based on what time it was before. And the answer is, since I became a full time RVer time has very little relevance in my life anymore other than an occasional appointment for something or another, I really don’t normally care what time it is. I eat when I’m hungry, I go to bed when I’m sleepy, and I get out of bed when I darn well please. The importance of time mostly goes away when you stop having to go to a job or dealing with other people’s schedules.
Sometimes I still pay attention to what time it is, but for no other reason than habit, after you’ve had schedules for most of your life it’s hard to break the habit of looking at your watch. I’ve given some thought to taking off my watch, which to me represents the last vestige of living a working man’s life, and throwing it away. But I keep telling myself that it’s a cheap $24 Walmart Timex that’s about five years old and I’ll get rid of it when the battery dies. But the thing just keeps ticking refusing to die and is beginning to look like it will outlast me.
But the more I think about it the less I care about what time it is so maybe I’ll just take my watch off for a week and see how it feels, then I won’t have to worry about what time it is in Nevada, and what time it is in Arizona, because it won’t matter anymore and that will give me just a little bit more freedom.
when I first parked the Arctic Fox I was kind of by myself, and now I've got people all around me, I don't know why.

if you live in Bullhead city Arizona there's basically two things you can do. Play in the river, or play in the mountains. or if you're like me you can sit in your easy chair and not do either one. Wait a minute that's three things..... Never mind.
