This morning was one of the last warm ones for a while. According to the weather report beginning Monday night-time temperatures are going to be in the low 40’s possibly dipping into the 30’s. Just to be sure I am in Florida correct? The good thing is after Thursday temperatures are supposed to go back up to a more normal nighttime temperature of 60 degrees. Time for the extra blanket tomorrow.
Our Sunday morning began with worship at the First Presbyterian Church of Inverness. The music as always was just great. Unfortunately, Pastor Ron threw his back out yesterday and was not present this morning. Service, therefore, was short and sweet. No complaints here. I do look forward to next week when hopefully he’ll be back with another great and meaningful message.
When we got back home it was time for another upgrade to Graybeard. Barbara has been wanting a new pull down kitchen faucet for some time now. Today was the day
her wish would come true. Funny, I was once told because of the way the old faucet was installed, the way the sink was installed, this could not be done. Guess what? Not true! The new faucet is in and the lady of the house is more than happy. And as they say if the lady of the house is happy all is well in full-time RV land!
On to the next issue. A couple of times after the refrigerator goes through its normal defrost cycle we’ve been finding water on the very bottom shelf. So what gives? I did some detective work and what I found was interesting. There is a drip tray that is
supposed to funnel water out of the refrigerator to an outside drip pan where it then evaporates. Only problem, the water in the drip tray was a solid chunk of ice. OK. I broke all the ice out so that the water can now drain. I have also resolved to check on it periodically so it can’t create a problem again.
It was now time for football and Hallmark, one up front, the other in the back. Only one problem. For a couple of days now we’ve been having issues with the second receiver and back TV. Today I finally figured out what was going on. Bottom line you need to be
in sync with the first receiver and the main TV. Once that is on, once you have a channel selected, the antenna locks onto the satellite that has your channel. Now, you can use the second receiver and second TV but only for programs that are on the same satellite that the main receiver and TV have locked onto. Got that? Thankfully, the football games and Hallmark are on the same satellite so we have no issues watching both at the same time on each TV.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. Upgrades complete. Puzzling issues resolved. All in all a very good day. Thanks once again for joining us as we journeyed along, side by side, hand in hand, singing our song. We hope your day was as enjoyable as ours was. Before I go for the evening, a though once again for all of us to think upon:
As always, if you are coming to the end of your day with concerns and worries, let me suggest that you turn them over to God. After all, He is going to be up all night so why not let him handle them for you.
Time now for our evening prayers and eventually some shut-eye. Till tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before
See you on down the road
