Cars of beauty and art:
And then there was the early 1950 MG, This one I really wanted! Remember my birthday is in January. (SMILE)
It is hard for me to ‘not’ do something while awaiting maintenance. So I am working a little on the coach to save some labor costs to the improvements we plan. Our living room in the coach is carpeted. We had it carpeted a few years ago by the guy who installed carpet in the houses I built. Something I did not think about, the traffic pattern in an RV is always the same. You enter and leave thru the same door. everyone who enters steps practically in the same spots. The carpet has taken a beating.
Above, you can see the stains in the blue. We cleaned the carpet about every year, but it is hard to keep it clean. I added the runner on the stairs that helped.
We are having the carpet removed and the new ‘vinyl’ (?) plank flooring put down. That means the entrance steps must be redone.
So I did. Now it is ready for matching wood flooring.
I needed to finish today because the coach will go over before noon on tomorrow. I am so looking forward to getting this over and done.
Myra stated it well about them getting the roof done. Do not put it off, DO IT. People do not need the stress of something hanging over our heads.
Some folk don’t understand why we would prefer a 325 sqft motor home to a house. I thought of MA (what’s new in my house) today. For years she moved into a camper for the summer months up in Ohio, she loved it. BUT time goes on and life styles are forced to match age and circumstances.
Sherry and I know at the most we have 5-8 years left ‘on-the-road’. I did get a little encouraged today when I heard
her say she would not mind making one more swing around the USA.
One of our reasons would be to see the two grands and some great grands plus friends out in Utah. It would be the last time to see them.
It was easy to type that, but now thinking about it, that sounded so final. Now as I give it a second thought, reality says, “It would be FINAL for some of the grands, Jack!”
In life any visit may be your last, I know that. But in your 80s? Each LONG trip is Much More likely to be your last!
