Beautiful day today, a perfect day for getting outside and climbing up one of these hills around here, but fortunately I talked myself out of that nonsense before it got any further than a brief thought.
I did do a little getting ready to leave next week, I filled up the truck with diesel, and refilled one of my propane tanks. The propane tank wasn't completely empty but since I needed to go into town anyway to get some fuel and get rid of a couple trash bags I just topped up my propane tank while I was there.
When I got to the gas station which is also where I get propane, I was informed that the credit card machines weren't working and that it appeared to be a problem all over town, so they were only taking cash. Now I normally don't carry cash except maybe $10 in singles for tips and things like that, and It's not that I worry about walking around with cash, its just that I don't have any.
After giving some thought about what to do I finally remembered that I have a super secret stash of cash money that I keep hidden just for emergencies, and since I've just driven 4 miles to get propane and fuel this seemed to be just the kind of emergency that I had planned on having one day.
Unfortunately when I hid this super secret cash money I either forgot to tell myself where it was or I had forgotten where I put it. I'm going to guess that I actually forgot because I have forgotten a few things before so that would be nothing new. I'm pretty sure I would've told myself where I hid it, not because I trust myself with important secrets like that, I just knew I would forget where it was so there would be no danger of me revealing the secret location to anyone else.
After using all of the common sense I have available, the power of deductive reasoning, and realizing how lazy and unimaginative I am, I knew that I would put it someplace where I would quickly forget where it was, but a blind thief could find it almost instantly, and sure enough it was in the console.
So I used up my entire life savings to buy 10 gallons of diesel fuel and 8 gallons of propane which would bother most folks but doesn't effect me in the least because I have a bunch of credit cards that can keep me fueled up and well fed at least until the bill comes due and by then I will have moved to another town where the bill collectors can't find me....... In less of course they read my blog, but nobody reads my blog, I don't even read it ...... By the way I've changed my mind about going to Phoenix, I'm now heading for Kwethluk Alaska.
A quiet evening in Ajo Arizona.

Since I knew I was going to town this morning I put two trash bags in the bed of the truck last night... Bad move. The Ravens found the trash bags. You can see a lot of grocery bags laying there because I threw them all away, they had holes in them so I couldn't use them for trash bags. This isn't the first time this has happened to me, when I lived in Colorado the Raccoons and the Bears did this any time I made the same mistake.
