ok so as summer goes on we doing our repairs over and over yet again, as it seems same things always break no matter how well ye fix em first time. but then i have been here a day or two so i suppose i need to take that into account.
and when it rains it pours…. boat needs repairs, dad is on his way to wherever donny is, and …….
so i have fuel filters, finally, and need to plumb em into fuel lines. i stil need sr diaz to come finesse engine before leaving, dont know exatly when that will happen. i still need to find some new hoses for exhaust and …..
still need crew–now that there is no local work due to no tourists at this time of year, i am being fought over. money here is always short in sept and oct.
i will be patching and wrapping what i have so hopefully it makes it to mazatlan without killing me or bubba.
is kinda hard to concentrate on the business of repairs when the life of a family member is waning, especially the one who gave us life and breathe and kept us fed and clothed as we were raised by him n momma. he did a good job of providing.
i hope his passing is peaceful. this is hard to watch. was difficult when i was working, but up close and personal is a different kind of watching. kinda messes up the ability to concentrate on the lil things, like what day is it, and what do i have to do.
visa is due to renew at this time, as well… should be completed by end oct, so then i will be able to relocate easily and without the visa hassle over my head.
still hoping to be in mazatlan as soon as i can manage that…had to redo some work that was allegedly already done–but was fail, as some gave me a hella shock to paw when i went in to a cabinet that was not spozed to have live 137v wire hanging around.. oops… that hurt for a coupla days. wish i could trust the work that was allegedly done when the person who was allegedly assisting in the alleged repairs, but i cannot. so that was 6 months of fail that had to be re configured for safety ….. so many things, a few of which i yet neeed to find.. cannot go to open ocean with the results of sabotage under my butt….. i want to live thru this intact, boat, cat, and self.
and i have found items i am saving for to use on boat when i leave– a shifter and throttle assembly that is two instead of one lever, so i can experience a miracle in operating this engine and boat…ease in function..milagro. ok is on list….
and……. so repairs continue. what i can do here i do not have to do in mazatlan.
and i understand i have a brand new toilet awaiting me in guaymas… must get to my destination…. that new head is a bright goal in my life at present… imagine getting happy just because you are getting a new toilet… ok so my life is a lil dull right now, but…. repairs are in progress, slowly, and i am still making my plans in wet sand.
go in peace dad and watch over momma….
