Once I was delivering to a dollar Tree store in Big Bear California, which is almost 8,000 foot elevation and a major ski area in winter.
Being subject to DOT driver logbook rules I had to shut down, parked behind the store for 34 hours to reset the logbook.
So I took a walk and discovered a guy who had a stand selling alpaca winter stuff like hats and gloves, made in (I think it was Paraguay). I forget the details but I paid him for some things he didn’t have in inventory. He promised to mail it to me. Took months and he finally mailed my order to me and included some extras for the delay.
Bit of a chore to get a 53 foot trailer up and down that mountain in winter.
Aside from the ice and snow, sometimes it was foggy. Couldn’t see 10 feet ahead. But I knew that if I kept the left steer tire on the center line my trailer would not tear up the guardrail. I knew if a car was coming the other way I could see its headlights. Hairy ride going down the mountain and up the mountain, competing with the people going skiing.
Here is the difference between llama and alpaca:
You want levity? Take a walk and talk to people. Staying in the house is depressing. Take a walk. If you really want levity, put a chicken on a leash and take a walk. Great conversation piece !

I gave the Alpaca stuff to a young granddaughter.
That was in like 2005. She’s almost a young woman now.
The human race will survive; most of the younger generation is smarter than we are.
