  1. Years ago in the 70's, as a young Yankee newly in Shreveport, Louisiana, I got pulled over one morning on 4-lane 70th Street, after a 2" snowfall. Road surface was slushy, but temps were above 32... no problem. Shreveport Policeman said, "speeding too fast for conditions" and wrote me out a ticket. (I was doing the speed limit) Politely I said, "But officer, I am from Michigan, and this is not much snow at all". He gave me a hard look... and said: "Improper lane change!"... and wrote me out a 2nd ticket. No dummy here, I shut up. (I did appeal both tickets and got them dropped.)
  2. For what it is worth, My wife an I received our first COVID Vaccine shots this afternoon. I used the above link (NOTE)... to locate sites close by with available Vaccine doses, visited them (2 sites) and on Monday (two days ago) made an appointments for both of us. Medicare covered everything. I listed my home state residency as Michigan, no problem. Shot #2 was booked for follow up in 28 days. Waiting time was minimal. Everything worked well.
  3. I am in Atlanta, Texas (close to Texarkana). The Texas web site I am working with for tracking vaccine opportunity is: Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Information Note the link... https://txdshs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=91ac7fb5e5fd47e7ada4acfe4a05920a for locations and associated info. Texas has priority Phase 1B as including ages 65 and up... I think only other state doing that is Florida. I have yet to ascertain that Texas is treating out-of-state snowbirds... but in my questioning, no one at Walgreens, CVS, Collom & Carney Clinic, Christus St. Michael
  4. We'll be tracking on this also, Kirk. Two months ago my wife and I were on our way to Michigan (via car) for Holidays with family there. We stopped in Texarkana to visit family and while stopped, was advised by my Michigan Doctor to not continue to Michigan due to COVID spiking. We then decided to stay in Texarkana and to get settled into a motel suite for the season. We would also undertake our medical exams & treatments in Texarkana for our various medical needs. (Family here, all going well.) I just read where the State of Texas changed the priority for Vaccines to in
  5. Count my Wife and I as Medicare Supplement Plan 'G' advocates... In 8 years of Fulltiming, we have used our policy in Michigan, Texas, South Dakota, and Arizona. No problems whatsoever.
  6. Kirk, it could well have been behaving that way all along... and just not noticed. This 'just completed' Summer is the first time in our 260K miles that we were driving it in the temperatures of Yuma... so very well could be the first time any 'computer control' could have needed to kick in. I did ask this question of the Honda Dealership Service Mgr... and he was not sure but suspected it to be 'computer control' situation. My chief concern is to discern whether or not I still have a problem prior to departing on a long driving trip... And I think I am checking off 'problem fixed'! Th
  7. Some follow-up for closure: I had the local Honda dealership do some PM type work (Fuel injector, plugs, valves, etc) for a high Mileage car (260,000+ miles), and have been driving the car extensively for three days. The PM work, along with a new A/C kit, has put some great life into the 2008 Honda. Hope so, as we are looking at a 10,000 mile road trip in a few weeks. It does seem as if the A/C, with engine under load, does reduce cooling a little bit... and restores cooling as soon as the engine load is eased. Can't find any documentation on this, but have noticed the 'effect'.
  8. bobsallyh, thanks for the information. May be heading there soon. And... You have been such helpful folks over the last couple years that my wife and I have been coming to Wellton... I just want to note such, and say to you, "Thank You".
  9. Good to know, Kirk. Thanks for mentioning. My wife and I are, and have been, Flu Vaccine people... pneumonia vaccine, etc. Plus, we are both 70, and Alice is subject to pneumonia. We don't take chances.
  10. No problem, 2gypsies. I have had dental work at Sani Dental, and I believe I still have a card with their numbers on it. But Thanks for the good pointer!
  11. Good to know - Any recommendation on how to physically cross? Currently, the parking lot is closed, and the only way I can see is drive across the border, or park way back on the highway and walk.
  12. You bet, agesilaus. If you find any definitive info about los Algodones, many people would appreciate hearing. I will do the same. For us, it is a 70 mile round trip there, and the only practical pedestrian parking is the Quechan Lot (on border, American side)... and when it's closed, wasted trip.
