Today was a day you wish you could push the "reset" button on..It started OK...We got up early to get the laundry done so we could ride up to the WalMart at Casa Grande. I needed to pick up my prescription...and that was the main reason we went 95 miles. We also needed some groceries that are unavailable here in Ajo.
The sun was trying to peek through the clouds over the mountains behind us..
Before I bore you with our lousy trip...we had a great sunset last night...again...
We left the campground at 9AM, turned left on Rt. 86 and headed up the road, through the Indian Nation. About 15 miles later, we turned North on what is called Indian 15...(IRR15)..and the road was a very good one, nice and wide..no gravel. It looked like rain in the mountains ahead...
We were driving along and we noticed a white truck following us...just staying far enough away, but not passing us. The speed limit was 55mph on this road, and we were staying right at it.. I asked Den if he thought the truck behind us was Border Patrol, or the police, and he didn't think it was anything but a normal white pick up truck. But, apparently there was a car behind the truck, because suddenly a car came zooming around us both ,and speeding on in front of us..And coming on the other side of the road was a Tohono O'odham Police Car...He must have known this guy now ahead of us was speeding..The cop did a U-turn and came up behind the white truck (who was still behind us)...All of a sudden they both came flying around us, going like a bat out of Hell...It was when they both passed us we noticed that the white truck WAS Border Patrol, and he had 2 dirt bikes in the truck bed..
When we got there we drove through Historical Casa Grande..
I'll now cut to the chase...I couldn't get my RX because they didn't have enough of the drug...they could only give me "partial" RX. I figured that meant that out of 90 pills I would get at least 30...WRONG AGAIN.. I got THREE pills....three!! So now I cannot take those without driving another 95 miles an a few days to get the rest...FORGET IT.. I will get the rest when I get time...
We got our groceries after waiting around for the 3 damn pills...It was now 2PM! We checked out and to make a bad experience worse, the checker forgot to use my 10 or so coupons..."I'm sorry, ma'am, but once I total, I cannot use them..." Let's get outta here!!!
It was a quiet ride back...We were both pissed..But we settled down once back at the RV park. How can you be crabby when you are surrounded by such awesome scenery?? It is now 5:30 , and I am well past cocktail hour, but never fear..I WILL have one!! It's cardboard pizza for dinner as another sun sets behind the Arizona mountains...Hey, we DID have a nice, exciting drive...and we both know...LIFE IS GOOD!!
I'll adjust my attitude and blog again tomorrow....Thanks for reading this far, and if you did...you deserve a medal!
