OK, not a common time for us for sure. You may remember that I was laid-up in Benson, AZ with bronchitis. Than Anne-Marie got it and was out of commission for about 5 days. We left Benson last Sunday only to break-down about 50 miles west of our destination (Quartzsite). We heard a crunching noise from our front left wheel at 4:00pm on Sunday. Good Sam dispatched a mechanic who correctly diagnosed a failed set of wheel bearings at 9:00pm. Freightliner has 24/7 parts in Phoenix, he made the 150 mile trip and was back reassembling our rig at 2:00. He was done at 4:15am and we were $425 lighter
Anne-Marie went to bed for a few days coughing with an on/off fever. Sue Schaffer assumed command and took her to the local hospital where pneumonia was diagnosed and 4 prescriptions written. We drove to Wally Mart in Parker, AZ where we had to wait 4 hours.
Magic medicine, 2 days later she’s much better!
A couple of ‘young’ fellows came up from Tombstone to entertain us in Benson. It was a fun night for all accept Anne-Marie who slept thru the whole week. The fellow closest to you was playing castanets made out of Beef Rib Bones.
Got to go, just discovered a leak in our waterpump
