97-ChinoValleyOctNov2022

Sun Oct 16 2022

We got up and got ourselves, hooked up and left Joe‘s at around 9 AM. The drive over to Chino Valley was uneventful. Pulled into Aaron‘s yard and got ourselves set up and got a chance to visit with Mr. Bowen. Had dinner with Alicia. Helped Aaron out a little bit around his yard, which gave me a chance to be able to visit with him.

Mon Oct 17 2022

We started out today doing a bit of downsizing in the trailer in an attempt to lighten the load. Will continue this project over the next few days with the hopes of being able to get down to a proper weight for both the truck and trailer. Cindy went over to Alicia‘s place and helped to feed Ava, and I am attempting to get all of my journals caught up.

Cindy went grocery shopping, and we watched Trigger for Aaron. Got a call from Patty that someone hacked Dad’s computer with ransomware so will need to go down and help him with it.

Tuesday Oct 18 2022

Cindy babysat Ava while Alicia got her hair done. I was extremely lazy today.

Weds Oct 19 2022

Sorted and arranged the connex. Smoked meat on Traeger for dinner. Cindy watched Ava for Alicia while she picked up a new car seat.

Thurs Oct 20 2022

Worked on setting up a Zoom meeting for our Grand Design Chapter. Helped Alicia move stuff over to their new storage unit. Got the truck ready to go down to Dad’s tomorrow. Erica and Cory came by and picked up the workbench from the connex.

Fri Oct 21 2022

Dropped trash from connex at the xfer station. Had breakfast at Hardees on the way to dads. Drove to dads. Cindy worked on dads' computer after it got hacked. Chatted with Gene and Mary. Supper at Morenos which dad insisted on paying for. Dad had a challenge driving after dark plus he was quite tired.

Sat Oct 22 2022

Cindy wrapped up fixing dads computer. Breakfast of eggs n sausage. Chatted with dad after the computer finished. Dad had a heart spell. Pizza for late lunch. Drove home. Cindy babysat Ava so Brandon and Alicia could go out.

Sun Oct 23 2022

Added air to truck tires. Blew out the fireplace heater in the trailer. Caught up on my daily notes. Went through keto PDF. Watched sports.

Mon Oct 24 2022

Worked some on getting stuff out of the trailer. Cindy assisted Alicia with Ava.

Tues Oct 25 2022

Cindy helped Alicia with the baby Ava.

Wednesday, October 26, 2022

Wrapped up putting stuff in connex from the trailer. Brandon was home this evening so Cindy and I did a burger and fries from Culpeppers. Getting way too expensive to eat out.

Thursday, October 27, 2022

Attempted to get the fireplace functioning by blowing it out. Chatted with Alan for a bit plus discussed how he is off all his diabetes medicine now through how he eats. He has no grains and does mostly seeds and nuts for his fat intake.

Friday, October 28, 2022

Called Missy to wish her a happy birthday. Went to the CCW class at Buffalo Wild Wings in Prescott Valley. We went for a morning walk with Alicia and Ava. Put fuel in the truck at Circle K.

Saturday, October 29, 2022

Drained holding tanks. Filled fresh water. Short walk with Cindy and Bowen. Went to park with kids and grandkids for the Halloween festival. Dinner with Lindsay, Aaron and Bowen after carving pumpkins. Also filled out election ballots will need to get them mailed out on Monday.

Sunday, October 30, 2022

Chore day. Cindy woke up with a headache, so there was not a morning walk today. Washed the trailer with water and soap, will do a final clean with the wash wax all later. Had dinner with Alicia and Brandon, BLT’s with candied bacon. Alicia cooked the bacon in the oven then sprinkled it with brown sugar and sprinkled part of it with pepper flakes. They also had an heirloom tomato that was brown in color, but it has great flavor. Aaron and Lindsay made good progress on their trailer remodel. Watched some YouTube videos and called it a night. Weekends are good as we don’t have to deal with the idiots in Washington passing crap legislation that screws the American public. Will see if the people are smart enough to elect representatives that have our and the country’s best interest at heart, instead of what gives them more power and money.

Monday, October 31, 2022

Otis ran off on Jeff this morning, not for sure if he was able to find him before he had to leave for work. Brandon went back down to Phoenix for a few days of work. Aaron is working on Elizabeth’s old place in Dewey again this week building a boat parking spot and a deck.

Downloaded Dads pics to the hard drive so don’t need to carry the disks. Will put them back in the connex tomorrow. Cindy did a chiropractor visit today and grocery shopping. Smoked a pork roast today that turned out halfway decent.

Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Cindy helped Alicia by defrosting her freezer today. I cleaned up a bit around the trailer in preparation for forecast rain on Wednesday evening thru Friday. Cooked a batch of beans and added the leftover roast from yesterday, will see how the soup turns out.

Wednesday, November 2, 2022

Worked on the trailer organization again while Cindy helped with Ava and watched the weather come in.

Thursday, November 3, 2022

Cindy made caramels, watched Ava and snowed during the day.

Friday, November 4, 2022

Went down and visited with Nancy and Kurt.

Saturday, November 5, 2022

Quiet day at the trailer with all the kids gone. Got birthday calls from family and had good chats with Dad, Larry, Brent and Alan.

Sunday, November 6, 2022

Did the toolbox in the truck, watched football, and played a bit with Bowen.

Monday, November 7, 2022

Wrapped up work on the computer dealing with the photos and paperwork from Dad. Cindy washed blankets and stuff off bed. Alicia’s dryer quit operating just putting out heat. Took it apart and found a part that dropped from above that shorted out the heating element. Called Larry and wished him a happy birthday, and chatted for a short time.

Tuesday, November 8, 2022

Today was election day. We found out once again that these blue states do not know how to count votes, nor do the people in those states have enough brain matter to elect anyone that is qualified. Pennsylvania elected a moron that can’t even talk.

Wednesday, November 9, 2022

Today is day two of the saga of the morons not being able to count the vote. I do believe you could turn a couple of kindergartners loose, and they could count it faster than these losers in Arizona are doing. It is a slap in the face to all voters.

Thursday, November 10, 2022

Well, here is day three of the morons in Arizona proving once again how incompetent they are. We are still awaiting results from the election, and they are now telling us it’ll be Monday or Tuesday of next week before they can get it counted. Florida by 10 o’clock their time on voting day actually already had all the votes counted and the election done. Seeing how it is the bitch Hobbes, who is the Secretary of State also, running for governor just shows how corrupt Arizona has become. And nothing like a little conflict of interest.

Friday, November 11, 2022

Day four of the election day, counting and guess what, Arizona is still so damn stupid they haven’t gotten it done. On a more positive note Brandon got to come home this weekend. We got to see Mr. Bowen this weekend. And it was Cindy‘s birthday. The kids treated all of us to pizza and brownies, and then we had a fire afterwards.

Saturday, November 12, 2022

Cindy got a chance to talk with Miss Elizabeth this morning, which it sounds like she is doing quite well for having just lost Dave just over a month ago. Turns out that Elizabeth is going to go up to Washington with Linda for about three weeks, which is awesome. It is great to see her getting out and doing a few things so that finally she is actually getting to enjoy her retirement. Drained the gray and black water tanks on the trailer as well as filled it up with freshwater. Swapped out the toaster oven for the Breville. Other than that it was a very quiet day.

Sunday, November 13, 2022

Watched some YouTube videos this morning as well as making breakfast. Cindy went shopping to get stuff for making her soup plus buying some more rugs for the trailer. Caught up all of my journaling to today. Cindy made her clam chowder for dinner and I think everyone enjoyed it. Finished out the day watching TV. Did call Dad today, and he said he was a bit shaky after yesterday's heart episode but feeling better. Alan anticipates being at dad's tomorrow. Larry called, and we chatted for a bit about a whole lot of nothing other than how to hook up his lights in his new paint booth.

Monday, November 14, 2022

Today is Joe’s birthday, so I made sure to call him and wish him a Happy Birthday. Sounded like all is going well with them. Also let him know we would be over on Friday instead of Wednesday. Ben called and said his rental rehab is going decent, but still has quite a bit of work to do. We will attempt to give him a hand when we get over there. Alicia is happy that we are staying a couple of extra days. She made us Chicago dogs (hot dogs, sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes, buns and spice) for lunch, it was very tasty.

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

Cindy helped Alicia with her computer today. We also picked up Cindy’s new glasses, so hopefully that will help her with seeing more clearly. While out, we went to Walmart and returned the small trash can that wouldn’t fit in the bathroom and while there picked me up a new pair of cheaters. Also went to Costco and got some coffee and a few snack items.

Wednesday Nov 16 2022

Loaded the truck to make sure everything would fit with the new load mixture. Grabbed my detector and pans plus backpack, so I could go out in the desert. Alicia and Brandon gave us birthday gifts, they got me the coolest speaker for Bluetooth that goes outside and has a built-in light.

Thursday Nov 17 2022

I had a headache today which made for a not so fun day. Aaron and Alicia came over for breakfast. Cindy went with Aaron to see a play that Bowen put on. I got the headache to back off about 4 pm. I think they might be coming from how I sleep, so I experimented by sleeping in the chair tonight, and it seems that it may have helped to not be so plugged up when I woke up.
