I forgot how hot and humid it was and the daily rain showers that turn it into a 94 degree sauna.
The people here are all friendly, and believe me, it IS ISLAND TIME. No one is in a hurry, and I guess if you live on an island, you set the rules, and that's ok.
We rented a house on the ground for a few days, so the dogs wouldn't have to climb stairs, because most homes here are about 12 feet off the ground.
Went to a bank here in town this morning to get some quarters as the car wash I found did not have a working change machine. I was a good boy, and left my sidearm in the truck when I went in, and ask for 5 dollars in quarters.
The staff was very pleasant as I walked in, and greeted me.
The lady at the counter ask if I had an account with them, and I told her no, unless your owned by a bigger bank. She said she could not make transactions for people that don't have accounts with this bank. I ask her to get her boss, and she did, and it was another very nice lady, and after a few exchanges, she instructed the teller to make change for a 5 dollar bill,
The very nice boss lady took my info and found that yes, indeed I do have a sizable account with their parent company, and she would be HAPPY to help me with the change order.
Now, how in the hell do you think you could get into a hassle in a bank when all you want is 20 quarters? I can't see that situation being something that they have to fight to control. Rampant change orders?
I was just trying to get some money to start the vacuum cleaner at the car wash to get some of the sand that the dogs got in the truck at the beach, and what a mess, 4 dogs in the sand and water,... this truck now officially has 4400 miles on it, time for an oil change
It has been as far west as Pinto Canyon south of Marfa, and here in Port A.
Terlingua is next on Thursday if all goes well.
Ya'll have a great week, thanks for stopping by, more when we get home I hope.
