7/1/2013 July ALREADY!

(Arizona City, AZ)

I just can’t believe its July already.  Where is 2013 going?  On second thought, it can go, it certainly hasn’t been one of our better years, that’s for sure!

Temperatures are hitting the 115° mark every day now.  Every single day we ask each other “What are we doing here?”  I can’t even imagine what August would be like.

We still haven’t had rain.  I don’t know where the monsoons are but they can stay away until we’re on board that big metal bird.

There’s no going to the pool now, its too hot.  For me at least.

We’re having a BBQ on the fourth of July with friends here in the park.  The town we’re in has their 4th of July celebration on the 3rd, including fireworks.  Yeah, I don’t get it either.  The 4th of July is the 4th of July, not the 3rd, not the 5th, THE 4TH!    Things like this drive me crazy. I’m tellin’ ya, when they make me boss of the world, stuff like this won’t happen anymore!

We went in to town today and filled the fuel tank.  We were able to get diesel for $3.15 a gallon thanks to our points we accumulated through the grocery store.

Speaking of the store, have you bought bread lately?  I wanted a loaf of rye bread, brand name, are you ready for this?  Four dollars and sixty nine cents for that loaf of rye bread!  For what?  Sixteen slices of bread?  I didn’t get it.  I just couldn’t.  So I did pick up my Sara Lee bagels and got them on sale.  I also needed to get a new block of cream cheese.  Philadelphia brand.  You could have knocked me over when I saw $3.69.  WHY???  I opted for the store brand at $2.39 which I still thought was outrageous.  But hey, a girl’s gotta have her cream cheese for the bagels.

Here’s a good indication of what the heat in Arizona in July is like…..

Oh my gosh, I almost forgot!  Our day started a little earlier than planned this morning because our phone rang at about quarter to seven this morning.  I didn’t like the sound of that at all and even more so when I heard Bob say, “Hang on a sec, I’ll get her.”  My first thought was, “Oh no,”  “Please don’t let this be a call from Delaware.”  He just handed me a call with no explanation of who was on the other end.  This was my conversation:


“Mrs. Quinn?  This is Sandy from Lazy Days in Tampa, Florida.  I’m sorry to wake you, I didn’t realize that you were in Arizona and I never gave a time difference a thought.  The reason I’m calling is that I found a set of 5th wheel keys that belong to you and I need an address to send them to you.”

I gave her the address and then asked…..

“How did you come across the keys now?”

“Well, we got your survey and our CEO called me this morning to find out if it was the Quinn’s who are here now who wrote it?”

“So your CEO read it?”

“Mrs. Quinn, everyone who has a computer in this company read your survey.”

“Tucson too?”

“Tucson too.”

“Oh well.”

“No, it’s a good thing that you did fill it out, it helps us to grow and learn.  I’m just sorry that you had to spend 97 days in Tucson.  I have to agree it was ridiculous.”

“Mrs. Quinn, I want to thank you for the good things you said about your visit here in Tampa.  I really appreciate it”

So my survey was read from the CEO down.  Good.  I’m glad I took the time to fill it out.  I still have one more to fill out online.  I think I’ll get that one out of the way this evening.

Well, that's really good that everyone with a computer at Lazy Daze has read your survey. They NEEDED to hear that. We'll never go there again. I am standing by to be amazed by what happens in August.
