Good day, I love it.
Yesterday, I was close to calling a wrecker. I have only been stuck once in the motor home and had to call a wrecker that was in Tennessee. This time the front wheels were stuck to the axles, but we dug 'er out. I am sure if it had been the drive axle I could not have done it. I was sweaty and dirty, my girl cleaned up my mess at the driver's seat and covered the floor and seat as I went in and out.
Okay, correction, the Neighbor's name is Leif, not Leaf. Imma not thinking well, LOL.
Sherry cleaned windows today. Helped me keep straight as I did get power to the motor home, now we have A/C and a permanent outlet installed.
Gas water heater is vented and plumbed for gas, so we will soon have hot water.
I guess it is a good thing I am not in the contracting business any longer. Every stinking job has taken twice the time I figured. I keep asking myself, is it really the age thing? Heck I am only 77.
Son Mark gave us a new stainless double sink to replace the single bowl stainless that was here. No problem, I will hank the sink out in a minute and cut for the new one. HA, HA on me. The sink was not clamped in as the standard sink, but glued to the Formica top. It took two hours to remove it without ruining the cabinet top. About half way thru, I was thinking of replacing the counter top. LOL.
(Just a feel good picture)
Supply people are feeling the pinch, and are not including some parts that was once normal. I had the new sink ready to install and noticed a note: “Tail pieces not included", so I installed the sink, and will add the drain and dishwasher waste water tomorrow. The folks will probably know me soon, like the stores back home know my sister Shirl.
One final note, the tile is good on our new bath room, but the enamel glaze is gone, on the tub. Have any readers ever had a tube re-glazed? I am thinking of that route. My grandson Benjamin could do it but he is Utah.(OUCH)
This was a 12 hour day, I loved it. Much better than yesterday.
I love this picture of the 1953 Buick awaiting the steam engine.
