Hunkered Down at Lemoore Naval Air Station

I've been here at Lemoore Naval Air Station for a week.  The drive here was uneventful, except for bottoming out the scooter carrier about 90 miles from base.  This time, the scooter carrier's anti-tilt plate and screws got really messed up. [BIG SIGH]  I went ahead and finished out the drive, all the while keeping a close eye on the scooter with the backup camera.

The RV park here is as I expected: not particularly attractive but very functional and its a good place to wait.

A good looking sailor in the RV next to me helped me unload the scooter.  I said to him, "Hey Sailor, could you lend me a hand?" and he did. OK, I admit that I did actually not say "Hey Sailor" to him, but the rest is true.

Yes, I'm bored.  Want to see some photos?

Lynda called a couple days ago and she will be able to fly in to Fresno on Wednesday, June 2nd. Yahoo!  Her retirement is all finalized and the ink is dry. To quote a fine man, "Free at last...!"   I will pick her up at the FAT airport (Fresno Air Terminal) and we will drive to Oakhurst, near Yosemite National Park, where there is an RV park with a reservation for us.

I've been watching a LOT of movies, catching up on the blog, sorting out photos, and doing some carrier and scooter maintenance.

There is a huge dog park 2 minutes away, and me and the doggies go there several  times a day. I have been faithfully picking up their by-products.  I wish I could say the same for the other dog owners.  But, c'est la vie - perhaps their final destiny will be a field of dog-doo.  Please allow me my fantasies; they entertain me and help pass time.

When I get really bored, I ride the scooter around. One day I went to the commissary twice, on purpose. Another morning, I purchased a money order to pay the speeding ticket I got in Arizona. An hour later, I went back to the same area for a hair cut.  I have to space such activities out, so as not to get too exhausted.

I've cleaned all the upholstery in the Trek, and most of the carpeting.  I've done laundry twice - I've washed everything possible. Sydney skulks away from me when I grab the laundry soap. She's worried she's next.

Oh, and guess what? Its windy here.
