66 degrees and I get off the mountain at last.
It was a warm, clear day today though, and the temperature went to 66 degrees. We drove the Jeep into town and waited about 30 minutes in line at the car wash. It was the great "get the salt off your car" evolution. I got a kick out of watching people lovingly scrub their cars and completely ignore the underside of the vehicle.
After we got the Jeep cleaned off, we went to Walmart. I had a run in with the person who works at the ammo counter. She's really obnoxious. There was a paper posted on the ammo locker about a recall. I wanted to take it up front and copy it so I could post it. She said they didn't have a copier at Walmart. This is the same woman who takes ammo out of the shipments, hides it under the counter, then sells it to her friends and relations while telling other customers none came in. At any rate, I've learned from dealing with her in the past that it's a waste of breath talking to her. I found the recall on the web anyway. I wanted to have my oil changed while I was at Walmart, but the automotive manager told me it would be an hour and a half before they could get to me. So I did not accomplish that.
This evening I've just been listening to some smooth jazz. At nine I'm going to watch "Captain Phillips" on Direct TV pay per view. Sometimes it's not necessary to accomplish a whole long list of things to feel like it's been a good day.
