It was dark outside and raining hard when I woke up. I looked at the clock and it said 8:30 am. I got out of bed and turned on the LP Gas water heaters and then quickly got back under the covers as it would take 15 minutes for the water to heat up for a shower. Can’t wait for the electricity to be repaired and heating the water. That stays on all the time and is governed by the thermostat. The gas heaters kick on and off to maintain the water temperature at whatever I set it at and are using propane which empties the propane tank and then requires it to be refilled. At least, that is the plan just as soon as the part comes in and Daniel completes the repair. 

Even after I got up, it was still raining too hard to go out walking so we changed things around and had an early (for us) breakfast. I should say that breakfast came first, and the dog walk came second in between the showers. Even then, we did not go very far because of the rain. It did eventually ease up and we walked to the dumpster and back around the Break Room building and then returned to the RV. 

I found things to do, some of which I had been putting off like updating my address at several different places so that I can eventually cancel the Far West Blvd postal service. I still have a couple more to go. 

It rained sporadically all day which restricted any outside activities. We went out for one more walk after spending time on the couch with a dog on each side, and all of us were snoozing. We walked past Daniel’s RV, and they were outside with Gary. They invited me to join them, and we sat and chatted while drinking a beer. Gary left and I refused the offer of another beer until I saw that both Daniel and Malinda were both drinking their second or third or whatever the number. I changed my mind and said I would have that second one.  

They make me feel very comfortable around them and are fun to be with, but I am always afraid that I will outstay my welcome. So, I do a lot of second guessing. This time though, I finished my beer and then we walked back to The Caboose where the rest of the evening was spent watching a Premier League Football match and then a couple episodes of Yellowstone,
