No wind, sunny, blue skies, getting repaired.....

Our Location: Indio Blvd, Indio California
The wind died down completely Wednesday night. Thursday morning dawned with still no wind, sunny blue skies and promise of a warmer day. We had an quasi appointment at a shop on Indio Blvd. First come, first served. We arrived about 8:20 AM. 
Snow on that mountain top over there as we start down the 10 mile drop into Indio from Joshua Tree National Park.

Big Bear Mountain also has snow. We are still doing downward.
We are parked up beside the Pacific II Brake and Alignment shop on Indio Blvd here in Indio, California. We are having the bushings replaced in the springs, wheels checked, greased, etc and an alignment on the Igloo. Tire wear on the rear tires only is the reason. Instead of going into a big long explanation I'll leave it there. Hopefully we are out of here this afternoon (Friday, Jan 4, 2019) all of the parts are due this morning. 
Driving toward the area known as Palm Springs.

Some more snow as you can see.
A chat with Janet last night leaves us with a tentative date for lunch today at Mexicali's. A very authentic Mexican Restaurant just up the street from our current location. We visited with this place last year with her as well and loved the food.
We are in the La Quinta area.

 Janet's a very busy lady and this year has her even busier than usual due to some unexpected happenings. When we left in the fall we agreed on a visit at approximately this time as the calendar was wide open for her.  So we're going to have only a very quick visit but may come back this way later in the winter for another, we'll have to see. 

Some very pretty flowers around this area.
We have power, Danny the owner has us plugged in, we spent a somewhat restless night due to the industrial area we are in but as I said, we're hoping to be out of here today. We shall see how things go. 
Not something we see back home in Ontario, Canada.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've had a wonderful day. 

They have some very pretty landscaping in the southwest.
Until next time... take care, be safe, 



  1. It seems repairs are part of this lifestyle. Good Luck with yours.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thanks Rick. Yes it is a part of the lifestyle just as it must be done with a house. I just wish it wouldn't all come at the same time.

      Take care, be safe,

  2. Nice to get things taken care of, what I call preventive maintenance . Nice that you can at least have a short visit with Janet.

    1. This wasn't preventative but now it will be in the future.
      No visit with Janet today. She was too stressed and too busy. However we may head back to the area in a few weeks and see her. It's always an option.

      Take care, be safe,
