Sometimes your just have to get it done!
(Pictures, cars from the 1930's)
You may have heard the long quoted story among men of the married couple in the bed doing what ‘some’ married folk do, when the wife says, “Honey did you know the ceiling needs painting?”
I have a habit of seeing something that needs fixing, and doing it. Once Sherry and I had just went to bed and she said, “Did you know our ceiling is sagging?” I looked and sure enough, it was.
I said, “Go get in bed with the boys, I have work to do.” By 8 the next morning the ceiling was replaced and sheetrock finished ready for painting.
So, tonight I am saying good night to my sweetie, who is preparing to ‘sleep-read’. I try always to get back to the bedroom to admire my wife and get some sugar. Many times we will discuss the day or what we plan tomorrow as I sit and enjoy my girl.
Our Motorhome has two overhead a/c units. One front and the other over the bed. My girl says, “Honey, Oh no, look at the ceiling.” The ceiling fabric was already stained from the water leak (from the A/c) and was on the verge of starting to drip on the bed. This is really not an unusual occurrence in an RV, but it can be a pain.
We carry a wet/vac so I dug it out. Along with some carpet cleaner, and with Sherry in the bed I cleaned the ceiling, well, not just me, I got to enjoy my wife as she cleaned some also. (She did ask was the door locked!).
I tightened the unit down a little more until I can get on top tomorrow and look at the gasket. We did get the water stains out of the ceiling and all is shipshape for the night.
Things go bump in the night even in a 330sqft home.
