Taking Care Of Business

Did you ever have one of those days were you get up in the morning and all of a sudden it is time to get ready to go back to bed? And you have no idea what happened all day? That was today.

I know we went shopping. We had several items we had to get from the Depot and we had to make a stop at Aldi. I believe we also stopped at McDonald’s for drinks. I know I also spent some time packing more essentials into Elvira. But the rest of the day is sort of a blur.

I believe I spent some time tinkering with the passenger side slide. It goes out, but right near the end of its motion it makes a weird noise. I’ve hunted, searched, checked and double checked and I still can’t find the source of the noise. At this point I’m going to say it is what it is and we’ll have to live with it. Until. You get the idea. It’s either that or I turn my hearing aids off when I put it out. Now, that’s an even better idea!

The other item is the dash air. I got two years out of it since it was last fixed. However, it is again on the fritz. We have a resident here in the park who in another life was an RV A/C technician. He told me he would come over one day this week to check it out. My main concern is the compressor going bad, seizing up, and throwing the serpentine belt while on the road. If JT can assure me that that will not happen I can live without the dash air.

Now, what else happened today? Beats me. Let me think. OK, I cleaned the tires and checked air pressure. Went through some papers we have been carrying around for like forever. I filled the windshield washer bottles on both the car and the rig. That was me. I believe Ms. Barbara also spent some time after shopping getting meals together for the road. She ordered some things we needed from Walmart. She did some research on various attractions we want to visit. Oh yes, in the evening we played Phase 10.

So that was our day on The Road of Retirement. What about yours? Hope you had a great day, that you were able to accomplish some things you wanted to get done; and, maybe even had some time to dream about the future.

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.

Our continuing mission remains the same: 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

  1. I can appreciate the day getting away from you. We’ve been helping my brother with the cleaning out of his cabin, getting things ready to sell, trying to visit Mom to keep her calmed down, plus keeping after our spring cleaning around the outside of our house. But today is Sunday so it’s church first, visit Mom then sit back for racing. 😊

  2. A day that goes by like that is a good day I think! I don’t know what “Phase 10” is. Maybe a fun game? Hope you have a great week ahead!
