We stopped at one of the three Walmarts in Yuma and spent over $150 - Yikes! That wasn't good, right? But I got myself a couple of things I wanted besides food, so it was okay. :)
Then we drove down to the Quechan Casino Resort in Winterhaven, CA. It was only 9.3 miles from the Sam's Club on Pacific Avenue in Yuma to the Casino. Very easy to find.
So now we are right near the border and I'm ready for my Thursday morning dental appointment. I called the office to confirm the appointment, yes, it's confirmed. The 8:00 time is ARIZONA time, even though that area is in the California time zone. I confirmed that, too. She said we could again get the "escort" car to drive us to the dental office. And the visit would take an hour and a half. So I have all the info I need.
My friend Dale was planning on a trip to Las Algodones and he offered to join me - of course I gladly accepted. He'll be here tomorrow afternoon and we will drive to the border and walk over together the next morning. He has also offered to stay at the dentist's office in case I need an opinion, etc., like last time, and if he doesn't mind waiting until the work starts, I'd appreciate having someone else there with me. (It's hard to act like an adult all the time, ya know?)
Katie and I took a walk around the casino. It's windy today and the surrounding landscape is pretty arid and barren, but it was still a nice walk. This is what we saw:
Along one of the walls we had some Bougainvillea espalier training going on. This was one of the prettier plants below. I love Bougainvillea, the house I grew up in had a chimney on the side of the house that was covered with it.
Katie has been walking really well since all her romps with Steve the dog. The seroma on her right rear ankle is almost gone and doesn't seem to be swelling up when she walks a lot. I'm hoping it's finally going away. We've taken some pretty long walks in the last few days and she's done fine, just like her old self. Fingers crossed that it keeps up.
Oh, yeah - a quick question - does anyone out there have a recommendation for a brake shop in Yuma? My rear dual tires smell like burning rubber when I stop and I've had the tires checked twice. They are fine. I've been told it's probably the brake pads hanging up. I'd love a recommendation from you!
From me and Katie, have a great Tuesday, everyone! 💓😊💓
