Home is Where we Hook-up

And we’re off…..

Filed under: Travel in the U.S. — Heligypsy @ 8:35 pm

There are thousands of things I have learned about life in the last few year’s – one of the more frequently occuring lessons is the one about “don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today”. Yes, this one becomes especially hightened on the heels of loosing my dad, (and I am missing him terribly these days) but that’s not where this lesson comes from, particularly.

Here’s just a tiny glimpse (and lots of you already know where I am going with this) of how the days go for Keith and I. With our list of assorted errands to take care of in Las Vegas, we headed into the city relatively early this morning – to beat the heat, the traffic, and to make it to an appointment on time. Having successfully checkmarked nearly everything on the list, we headed back to the RV in Boulder City right around lunch time. By 2 p.m. we decided to take zoey to the lake for a bit of a swim. (Keith insists it’s zoe doing her vulcan mind-meld on us….if we were in our right minds we would never agree to head out into the desert at 110 degrees…..lake or no) As we drove the ole’ Boulder Hwy, Keith remarks about finishing his BBQ modification project, but adds “well, at least I have tomorrow off too” Yes, yes, I agree, that is a good thing.

His phone rings, oh I don’t know, couldn’t have been more than 5 minutes later from his last comment, “This is Keith,” he answers, and greets the caller who just happens to be his boss………and within the next 2 minutes not only does he NOT have the next day off, but he and I are talking about all the arrangements to be made post dog swim, so that he and I can fly commercially to Fresno in the a.m. and return later in tomorrow afternoon with the helicopter to begin the tours of the Dam.

It’s nearing 8:30 p.m. (and is still in the very high 90’s…I can’t help but add) Zoey is comfortably checked into “paws and claws” for her little overnighter, we have flights booked for 8:40 a.m, and Keith’s BBQ is just gonna have to wait….and that’s how it goes…..
