Saturday, January 14, 2017, La Posa West, Quartzsite AZ, Day 19, 0 Miles, 3,991.7 Miles For the Trip

A cooler than usual night at 46°F. There was enough sun today to get the batteries back to full by late afternoon.

I gave up waiting for Rite Aid to call & called them. My eye drops are ready & they apologized for not calling yesterday. I sat out & talked with Linda & Mel for awhile, then decided I might as well pick up the prescription today, rather than wait until next week. The eye doctor I saw at Blythe for a pressure test last year has retired, so I probably should go to Parker to have it done; I'll probably head there during the week rather than Blythe.

After picking up the prescription & getting back to the trailer I discovered that they had canceled all the refills. So, back on the phone, and they added them back into the system. I won't find out if they really did until the next refill in 50 days...

It is a bit cool & misty to sit out this afternoon or evening. In fact, I'll probably do an inside meal since, while it isn't raining now, there are dark clouds coming in from the West, and I know if I put something on the outdoor grill, it will start pouring!

Another day without any useful photos, other than my pillows I took for a post at the Escape forum. I'll probably annoy those that make pretty throw pillows for their trailers, but I can't stand them. I have a friend that covers the bed in their spare room with them & I spend half the night kicking them off the bed, then putting them back on in the morning. They would drive me nuts in the trailer. In any case, I have to admit that the ones posted at the forum thread are creative & beautiful. About as fancy as I get was to take a piece of upholstery foam & stuff it in a king size pillow protector to use as a back rest when reading.

My Pillows And Back Rest

Dinner was soup and a microwaved burrito.

Until Tomorrow -
