Oh, No, No Water

Someone, we won’t name names, forgot to look at the gauges and while I was standing in the shower this morning wondering why the water was so slow—looked at the gauges and said, “oh, no we are out of water.”  I did manage to get the shampoo out of my hair before the water entirely stopped and we won’t name names, but “he” better be glad I got the shampoo out of my hair!!!

So, our plans for the day changed.  We had originally thought of going to Phoenix and touring a trailer manufacturing plant, perhaps placing an order for “the trailer” and doing a Costco run.  With the no water thing we decided to go dump, change spots and stay here for the day.

What a beautiful, beautiful day!  Sunrise was spectacularIMG_5887  IMG_5891 About 1pm I was grilling shrimp kabobs and making rice when I noticed a 4-wheeler and a razor type 4-wheeler coming down our “driveway.”  The two rigs stopped right out in front of the motorhome and as one of the guys removed his helmet, I heard Michael say, “what in the world are you doing here.”  It was two couples from Big Timber, MT—Phil and Nancy along with Jerry and Elda who rode their ATV’s all the way from Quartzsite to find us.  We had a nice visit standing out in the sun before they headed back over the hills to their desert campsite. 

I stirred up a batch of bread dough from the Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day cookbook and was just getting ready to head over to Deb and Rod’s for happy hour when we heard another vehicle—geez, it is busy in the desert today!  It was Brian and Heidi and we invited them to join us at the neighbors.  After an enjoyable couple hours chatting, we all headed off to our respective rigs.

The moon is rising over our desert—another great day!

  3. Now that is what you get for thinking of coming over our way and not letting us know.

  4. Sounds like your day ended up pretty good after a sketchy start!

  5. sorry to hear about the water situation this morning!..glad you found the culprit!!!
    busy day with people stopping by!!!

  6. Luckily for us we can see the water level in the tank itself by opening a bin door. I have never found those guage type things to have any accuracy at all so never bother with them. Good thing you got the shampoo out of your hair because 'he' might never have got the rolling pin out of his head. (remember the cartoon strip years ago, Maggie & Jiggs:))

  7. I am sure he is glad that you got the shampoo out of your hair, as well. Being a He myself, I would wonder why the she's of the world never think to hit that check level button :)

  8. What a gorgeous sunrise and sounds like an exciting day too! :)
