We are back home.
Things are going great. We were in no hurry leaving Orlando so it was after noon by the time we had water and power hooked up to the coach here in Deltona. We spent part of the day at Lowes and Home Depot. I needed a sheet of plywood to hide the return vent in the kitchen, LOWES DID NOT HAVE PLYWOOD. I am thinking the manager here must be slack. Sherry was with me, my wise wife smiled, could it be because of the hurricane?
It was one of those 'palm your face' moments. OF COURSE, and there is probably a shortage all up and down the coast now. She suggested Home Depot. Smart girl I married. Home Depot's shipment of plywood had just arrived and I got the plywood.
Back at the house we decided to finish all the painting in the house we could, since we had spent most of our time traveling and shopping. Sherry in her work clothes:
But here she was after finishing the 2nd coat.Then she thought it was cute I had painted around a towel that was hanging here. (I was really just cleaning out a brush to go clean it.)
I have been searching for the sewer line leaving the house. I dug a 6ft ditch 2 ft deep where I KNEW a plumber would have exited the concrete slab. Nothing, I covered the ditch. After a sandwich I went back out to work and decided to pull the commode having two purposes in mind. To paint behind it and try to determine where the sewer left the house. One bolt was tough and the commode was grouted to the tile, a first for me. A commode should NEVER be grouted or caulked. If it leaks around the base, it should be fixed. Grouting or caulking only delays the problem.
But I did find the exit line and it was on another wall. I will dig for it later. I did paint behind the commode then noticed the time. OUCH time flies when you are having fun, it was after 10PM. I quickly cleaned up everything and came out to the motor home.
I am honestly going to try to not worry my girl and stop at a reasonable hour.
When we were in Alaska with daylight 24 hours a day, I told Sherry If we lived here I would work myself to death. LOL
I think this is probably a late 59 early 60's Dodge.
This is a 1964 Corvair. I really did like this little Chevy!
