Wednesday stuff…

Check out that white patch…yep, it is SNOW and was just off our bumper in the free campground at Cumbres Pass.  At 10,000’, it is still chilly, especially in the shade.Snow at Cumbres Pass

AlpacasThese critters have apparently just been to the hairdressers for their summer ‘do.’  Someone will have a pretty wool scarf or sweater or two for their sacrifice.

So Maytag Man is not a happy camper.  The belt kept flying back off after he put it back on about another 10 times, so there must be a loose strut that is making the washer wobble.  He gave up at about midnight, but at least we got the load spun enough to hang out to finish drying.  You have to be handy when owing a moho because there is always ‘stuff’ that needs working on, much the same as owing a boat!  MM is a mighty handy kind of guy.

We picked up forest service maps yesterday in Creede when we visited the post office (thanks for the mail and the TIVO remote, Amy!), so we’ll go out driving and sightseeing today.   For you Mayberry folks, it is 43 this morning!

Life is good!

Love it that you call it the moho! You are right though, in everything, there is always something to fix. Enjoy your Wednesday!

Brr! Sorry to hear that the washer still needs work. Like you said, it's always something!

Sounds like the Maytag Man had a very frustrating time of it!

Our weather here took a turn for the absolutely beautiful last night and today is just gorgeous. Unfortunately I have to go to work later and won't be able to enjoy it but just to have the humidity gone is wonderful!

Looking forward to more of your travels!

Can so relate to the fixing stuff comment. The acronym for BOAT is Bring On Another Thousand. It's so very true too. I love my boat though.

I'm sure Dick will have it fixed in no time and you'll be back in business.

I love Colorado. Been there many times and it's beauty is just breathtaking. Enjoy every moment.

Zane and I are ready for you to hug the stuffing out of us too. Just so you know.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs. :)
