Mr. David's A-1 Dependable Electrics Agency sent one of their top techs to Beluga and he arrived just after we got back from Gay and Joe's site. We called him from Naco to explain a problem with a cell in one of the four house batteries. It seemed to be boiling the water out. We knew he would be able to help. Since they were almost 6 years old Mr. David's man suggested buying new ones when we arrived in Tucson. He spent most of the day removing the old batteries, cleaning all the cables and connections, taking the old batteries to recycle and installing 4 brand new ones. I don't know what we'd do without the Mr. David's family of companies! I took no pictures.
Not to cast aspersions, but he seemed to have some trouble keeping himself on task because of the numerous and impressive formation flyovers from nearby Davis-Monthan Air Force Base going on overhead. Did I say they were loud? He may or may not have cracked his head on Beluga's compartment door. I took no pictures.
Pam and John came over briefly and we picked oranges off our neighbor's tree. I took no pictures.
The only pictures I do have are of the lovely lemon tree right outside our bedroom window.
It is chock full of plump, fragrant lemons, a few pretty pink blossoms getting ready to open and provides us some much appreciated shade. Since we arrived in Tucson the temps have been above average for this time of year, in the mid 80s. Don't cry for me! This sweet tree is perfect to sit under for second cup and happy hour.
And....it attracts lots of finches and mockingbirds. This morning we woke to the sound of the mockingbird's complicated and beautiful song. Nice.
I'll try to do better with pictures in the future.
