We arrived in Phoenix September 6th. This is much earlier than we planned because our dear friend Butch got married on the 7th and our oldest son James is marrying his beloved Alma on the 25th. The first problem was the heat as it has been over 105 degrees every day. Then as I was emptying the black tank (sewer) on Saturday the motor pump died in the middle. While I was able to override it with other manual devices it was blazing hot work and of course a little messy. Then the day we were leaving for Chicago (Scott) and Reno (Leslie) I mistakenly pulled down a curtain rod and it hit (and broke) the AC controller. To say AC is important in the summer in Phoenix is a bit of an understatement. It is fixed now so hopefully the rest of our time in Phoenix goes well.
