Temperature 69 Degrees

Tonight is the Nigtht – There Is A Chill In The Air

It Has To Come Out

Goodie Day

Gooooooooooooooood Morning World!

This is my new daily wake up message.  It reminds me that I cannot change what is going to happen in the day ahead, but I can decide what my attitude and outlook is going to be.  It is up to me to make it a good day.


The big chill is finally here.  Now for some of you 59 degrees at 7:45 pm would be considered a heat wave.  But for us it is down right cold.  How low will it go?  They say to the mid 30’s by tomorrow morning.  Time will tell.


One of our heavy blankets is on the bed and there are two more blankets at the foot of the bed just in case.


Our electric heaters have been brought in.  The heat pump is set for 60 degrees.  If needed we can also use our propane furnace.  We’ll be fine.  These 30 degree temperature’s are only supposed to be for two nights.


The verdict is in, unfortunately, our washer/dryer is going to have to come out.  I’m still not sure where it is leaking but it is leaking.  Given the fact that it took two much younger gentleman than myself to install it, the first hurdle is going to be finding someone(s) to yank it out.  We may have to take it to LazyDays to have it repaired.  They are the local repair facility for Splendide.  The worse of it is, it is probably going to be a month before we can get an appointment to have it looked at.  Darn.


Goodies from Amazon.  We purchased a new Omni Directional OTA antenna to replace the old bat wing antenna that we currently have.  I purchased a can of Slide Out Lube – my project for tomorrow will be lubricating all the slide seals.  I also purchased a new insulated water bottle.  Finally, Ms Barbara purchased an assortment of nail brushes.  She said she was tired of looking at my dirty fingernails.


My latest book.  I’m about half way through it and expect to finish it by the end of the week.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We both kept busy throughout the day.  I prepared the washer/dryer to be yanked out.  I spent a couple of hours just reading.  Ms Barbara was on the phone a good part of the day making and confirming doctor’s appointments.  I finally was able to find and order the step motor.  We had a good day from start to finish.  Hope you did too.

Thanks again for stopping by today  We always appreciate your company, and your comments and suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  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 never been before.

See you on down the road!
