Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itCool overnight but not freezing and about 7:30 this morning I headed into Benson to get the front sway bar on the car replaced at Super Lube Plus. As I have mentioned before have been dealing with these guys since 2006. Love their great service, decent prices and friendly smiles. Got there just after 8 am and they set to work on the car, They were all done by 9:30 and the cost we thought was very reasonable $219.00 for the sway bar and only $40.00 labor! The old sway bar has the ends crimped inside a steel tube and was letting go, The replacement bar has the ends welded in place so should be good for another 300 miles ya think. Now to clarify the milage, the car has been driven 155,000 miles and flat towed 145,000 miles. So everything gets worn for all those 300K miles except the engine .

A bit later Scott and Brownie dropped by to chat, they had fun day trip to Bisbee yesterday and he did a wonderful screen fix on his I-phone. They are heading out on Saturday all 9 of them,

In the meantime I was checking our slide out switch that has been working intermittently so went around the corner to RV City to see if they had one. Checking the shelves not looking good, I need one with 6 pins they only had 5 pin switches. So he called a mechanic in to talk to me and they checked bins in the parts room. They have one with 6 pins only in Black not white. Don't care as long as it works. How much? The guy said try try it out and let me know, he does not know me from Adam.. Wow more great service have I said we love small uptown service? Nothing like small towns to get things done. Not going replace it until tomorrow. Because we are staying longer we have to move sites. This one is reserved for the weekend, people coming in tomorrow. And we just happen to know our good friends Bill and Patsy are leaving in the morning so we can move to their site and stay until Monday if we wish, Still $12.00 a night including electricity.
That all taken care of is now time for Happy Hour at 3 o'clock in the front clubhouse, with Bill, Patsy, Sandy and Randy, just too cold outside to enjoy. We had a fun time chatting catching up and getting to know each other more, even a few snacks, I brought some Kale chips and Sandy some roasted brussel sprouts done the same way and quite tasty and of course healthy. Just before 4:30 we dispersed and headed back to our homes.
