Time Flies by, Its getting HOT here!!!!

WELL time has flew by and we are still here in Mission, TX and our concrete still has not been poured on out lot.....
Oh ya, forgot to tell ya, we finally decided on lot # 32 and Larry and Linda decided on lot # 12. They are at one end of LARK street and we are at the other. We have the corners covered!! They seem to be the most popular lots as they seem to have more "personality" to them than the others. We defiantly wanted to be parked N. to S. That way we get the morning sun on the front door and its on the back of our Teton in the afternoon. That's the way we have it on our lot at North Ranch and also our place in the Black Hills. We just seem to like it better that way...

There has been one delay after another. We wanted to "park" on our lots for a few days, or even just one night, before we headed North. The Chief thought he could make it happen and encouraged us to stay. The permits took longer than expected, then the inspectors took longer than expected,,,,ho hum. Now we only have a few DAY's before we just HAVE to leave. We have got to make this appointment at the Teton factory. We missed the last one because of Mom's death and they agreed to 'extend" the warranty until this time. If we missed this one who knows if they would do the stuff we have been wanting to get done or not. At their $90.00 per hr flat rate, I'm afraid to test it! Besides is getting HOT down here. Not a good time to be in these parts! Its easy to see why everyone else is gone.

Both Lots are ready to pour and tomorrow is Friday. If they don't get it done tomorrow, that's it, we won't get to see it done!!! Its the week end and Memorial Day weekend to boot with Monday being a Holiday. No way are they gona get any concrete on any of those days. So we have our fingers crossed, but wont be surprised if it don't happen. TUESDAY morning is departure day!!! Come "you know what" or high water!!!

Its a LONG haul to Casper, WY from here,,about 1600 miles.......Just hope we don't have any type of a breakdown........
I'll let you know what happens. Meanwhile, I guess I'll go for a BIKE ride on my new MONOGOOSE .............aluminum frame, double suspensson, 26", 21 speed Mountain Bike..........Pat and I bought a MATCHED pair. Two of them for $200.00. Can you believe that? What a bargain!!!
