*crossing fingers* Hope they can get her a water pump in Kingman fairly soon! Who there would work on a Sunday though. :?

Probably have a loooooooong wait in some roadside motel :| that looks nothing like the Grand Canyon! :lol:

Dang!! I'm about 115 miles from there... that's a couple of hours, and I just got home to the computer, so have no idea how long ago this happened.
I don't know of any burners or other friends over there.

Yes, indeed, that's what she's doing right now. The problem has been diagnosed as a failed water pump, a new one already ordered, to be installed tomorrow. She was able to stop before it even started to overheat, so, likely no damage there.
Elorrum is looking forward to a nice, hot shower, and a good (warm) night's sleep tonight.

Good to hear that Elorrum has everything under control. Not a surprise with all her friends rallying about and how competent she is!

Hey ED, my thank you and 2014 ticket came yesterday as well and signed by the same folks as yours plus a couple of other ARTery folks. Hanging on my wall now.

Love the portrait, Elliot It is so you!

Cold and clear here. (Well, cold for us)

In warm hotel room. Brought my dinner this time and thermos of semi warm coffee (have microwave and mug.)
20 degrees in Igor camper last night at the grand canyon campground. I was toasty warm in two sleeping bags. Looking forward to hopefully hot shower now. 8000 miles on my little red car this tour... expected some snags and budgeted accordingly.

I am so warmed by the calvalry at ready. Stand down, all is well.

Yeah, I wondered if anybody else caught that. A double typo in one word! And there you were.

And another typo, sort'a: If we are going to include my bum in my camp name, I want it written with an Oxford comma:

Of course, I could also be...

You are SO right, Crypto, and even I know EXACTLY what you mean. The grand feeling arrives both as the result that something is getting done and the complementary pleasure of sitting so high up above the world. I suppose both reasons have something to do with why some folks in this world are truckers. Maybe we can get AntiM to shed some light on it, or her husband. The warm tow truck helps, too.

I couldn't help but snicker a little when the cavalry/Calvary issues were being brought up. Next time, the word 'dragoons' could be used for cavalry (former term for cavalry until 1861), but then again may be not. It sounds too much like crossdressing enforcers, as in drag goons......

That part I understand just fine. But I'm still learning how to navigate, if that is the term, my way around on the page. I suppose I could read the manual, or run the tutorial. Now that I've done my first two-layer image, I reckon I will soon do another, and it will soon become easy. :D
