Good Samaritans

This week we’ve had the opportunity to be on both sides of good Samaritan activities. In January, LeRoy helped our friend Brian Reeve open up their property in Yuma to get ready for their winter stay. This week, it was time to organize the garage so things could be stored for the summer while Brian is away. We always enjoy our time in Yuma with the Reeves, even if it is brief. Their backyard is so nicely landscaped.

And that leads into our being on the receiving end. When we got home on Thursday, LeRoy discovered that his Chromebook hadn’t made the trip with us. Oops! Since we’re leaving Tucson tomorrow, there wasn’t time to mail it so we quickly made arrangements for Brian and Joyce to meet us halfway with it on Friday. It was a pleasant day for a short road trip and we enjoyed lunch in Gila Bend before we all hopped into our respective Chrysler convertibles to go home. Thanks, friends!

Today we drove across Tucson to help someone at our friend Robyn’s request. Robyn and Layne are in California, so we were glad we were available. One more day and we would have been gone! LeRoy tried his best to get Patsy’s trailer lights working, but was not successful. Some things are better left to the professionals.

The cactus blossoms are really popping out and we’re not going to be here for the best of them. Blooms are various colors and absolutely beautiful this year.

The saguaro blossoms were a real haven for bees. I’m glad they were up there and not down at my level.

LeRoy has started breaking camp today. One of the first things was taking the winter coats off the water hose. The one on Florence Marie’s RV expanded several inches once warmer weather came!

We are now parked across the parking lot from where we have been. The leveling boards have been stowed away, along with the DirecTV dish, the car is about ready to be hooked up and in the morning we will unhook from electricity and pull away until next season.

Our usual first stop at Truth or Consequences, NM to see LeRoy’s cousin Raymond has been complicated by unforeseen circumstances. LeRoy tried several times, unsuccessfully, to get hold of Raymond early last week and finally called the office of the apartment complex where he lives. It turns out Raymond had fallen on Monday and was still in the hospital. After numerous tries there, LeRoy was able to talk to him Saturday but he was on some pretty good drugs and wasn’t making much sense. So since LeRoy’s name was not on his list of who was privileged to his medical information, we still don’t know much about what happened or what his condition is. We’ll be there tomorrow afternoon and can straighten it all out then. How long we will stay depends upon Raymond’s condition and whether or not they will let him go back to living on his own. I’ll try to remember to tell about all that tomorrow. In the meantime, happy trails!
