Just to clarify things, this wasn’t my first cruise. I crossed that Atlantic when I was 17 or 18 yrs old. That is when the Gunny Sergeant told me folks paid good money for cruises like we were on. That was on an LST then on an AKA, Then a couple times on an aircraft carrier. But to be honest this cruise was much shorter, but with my girl, was much more fun. haha!
It seems after a big deal like the cruise I am a little lost. I bought a random orbital polisher at a yard sale and have been trying it on the motor home. Not happy yet with the results. If you have used one or someone you know has, ask them if they put the polish or wax on the buffer or the car before they start. Thanks.
Oh, normal aggravating stuff with the motor home. Our awnings, over the windows, slides, patio and door are spring loaded. Two in the front awning just broke as we were moving here to the state park. They ain’t cheap. It is frustrating because the ones we had before made by a company called A & E, lasted five or six years and we replaced only one spring. This will be the sixth spring in the same amount of time, but these are made by Care Free of Colorado. Something ain’t right.
(The awning springs that are broke are in the large awning)
But since we chose this life, we accept it, but I must gripe a little. Coming down to the end of the year and it just adds to the expense. But, we don’t cut grass, clean gutters or pay property taxes on this rolling home, so shut up already. OKAY!
Okay to real physical life. We left Florida early last year and went to Ypsilanti, MI to try to assist Sherry’s Bro in the hospital. Two things were scheduled before we left, my root canal and front end alignment on the coach. I canceled both. I was not able to reasonably find replacements for either.
The front end delay cost us two tires at about $900. That hurt. I have been petting this tooth with peroxide, alcohol, and tea bags. Well finally back in Florida it is next Tuesday and I cannot wait. It will be great. A root canal, I can’t wait. Only 7 months late(I love pain).
Okay, here we are off the ship and I miss it. But if I was there I would eat tooooooo much, dadgummit.
So I will wax the coach, fuss about the prices I have for the springs, and go on with life here in central Florida. I know you guys hate it for me.
Thanks for coming this way.
Did I read that sign right?
Notice in a farmer's field:
THE FARMER ALLOWS WALKERS TO CROSS THE FIELD FOR FREE, BUT THE BULL CHARGES.
Car of the day is a 1950 Chevrolet Business Coupe
Of course our looked like the last one, funny thing, Sherry thinks it was green, and I powder blue. We have no pictures, if we did they are black and white anyway. 55 yrs later it really doesn’t matter, does it.
I tore up the whole left hand side the week before we got married. We drove it for months like that. I have noticed lately more cars are being driven damaged, I am sure it is the economy.
