We left Dodge City this morning and spent the day driving home. We got in around 3:30 this afternoon and I'm ready to leave again. Although it was extremely hot up in South Dakota, they posted their hottest July in recorded history this year, but there was not a lot of humidity. It is in the high 90's here in Oklahoma but the humidity is terrible. We just took the very basic things we needed from the coach and then locked it up. We'll get out there tomorrow morning to finish unloading.
When we left home, a week later than originally planned, we had a pristine swimming pool in the backyard with a brand new liner. Our neighbor's son was to take care of the pool for us as he did last summer. It appears that the area has received much rainfall while we were gone because all the grass and shrubs are lush and green and the pool is full. Unfortunately the water in the pool is also very green. It appears that our neighbor boy has not kept the chlorine level up and the algae has taken over. My job is now cut out for me as I start pouring the chemicals to it to get it back to the condition it was in when we left home. As stated in previous blog entries, oh the perils of home ownership.
