The organizers said do not come in until after 2 PM today. 2 PM? How strange of time. So we took some quickee showers. Then we (Carol) cleaned up the inside of the rig. I checked the liquids under the hood. The engine oil is a tan in color but not real dark. I think that’s good. The engine needs an oil change. I checked with an outfit in Tok. They said probably next week and check back with them then. My Ford blend oil and Ford filter and their labor $30 bucks. I don’t have to crawl underneath plus get rid of 6 quarts of dirty oil.
I got a front tire that is showing a little unusual wear on the inside tread. It’s an easy check for a bad ball joint. That’s probably not it but it’s a first thing that should be checked. It’s probably an alignment thing. Maybe down in Anchorage I will have it checked.
So it’s working out the first day. Carol and I sat down in there somewhere. Dana Jones, Loosey Goosey member, came over sat with us for awhile. The bands seem to me more folk and country type. A one guy band (serious type) was Cousin Curtiss. He’s an up coming star he’s that good. He got the audience up and dancing with his kind of music. They gave him an extra 20 minutes. Yes we bought his CD.
It tried to rain later on but really didn’t. The outside shaded temperature got up to 87 degrees. Damn…. I went looking and found some shorts, t-shirt and sandals. It was HOT! They said this was the most unusual hot weather they’ve had here in many years. Whew is it hot up here.
Retirement is trying something different. What the hell!
See ya when we see ya…..
