Here and There With Daisy 2015 travel blog


What a day this has been! The tow truck arrived about 9:30. It took about 45 minutes to get Daisy hooked up. We were on our way to the garage by 10:15. It took us about 30 minutes to get there. The traffic wasn't bad at that time but it was foggy and misty.

The garage is a pitiful little place, with a dirt lot full of potholes. They don't have a bay high enough to accommodate a large vehicle, so they had to use their next-door garage's bay (at an extra cost). Replacing the fuel pump took several hours because they had to empty the fuel and then drop down the fuel tank in order to remove the pump. In the olden days, it wasn’t nearly so complicated.

I followed the tow truck in my car over to the garage because they don’t have a waiting room. Anyway, I wanted to visit Margaret while Daisy was being worked on. Her house is only about 3.5 miles from there. Margaret recently spent several days in the hospital but she was feeling much better today and she said that she had slept through the night last night. We went to Wendy's for take-out lunch.

I left Margaret’s a little after 5:00 to return to the garage. Then I hooked Sweet Pea onto Daisy and we were on our way. My guardian angel must have called in reinforcements because I had several near misses on the way home. Thank God for his protection!

When I pulled into Pecan Grove RV Park, it was already 6:20. It took me a lot longer than normal to get back into my site and get everything set up. I was able to do most of it by myself (albeit it slowly and painfully) but had to have help for those things requiring more strength than I have now. Two of my neighbors came to my rescue.
