Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
1970 Plymouth Superbird
1970 Plymouth Superbird
We left South Carolina early today. It was raining; I had disconnected the electric and water in 2 inches of water. The coach was in a small lake. That was the start. LOL
I do enjoy being behind the wheel of our coach on the road. My love sitting beside me. I really do enjoy driving this coach.
But the rains continued from Last night was just a reminder of the ‘joys’ of an RV, this one leaked around the front A/C on top. That is sort of a curse for we that own RVs. It is not uncommon. I will take care of that this afternoon when we arrive near Wildwood, FL.
We crossed into Georgia, it was raining. We ALWAYS sing Ray Charles’s song, GEORGIA (on my mind). We can't help it.
Uh oh, the windshield wipers gave out.. they worked off and on, enough to drive until it quit in Florida. Gotta fix that wiper problem before we head out again.
Seems it is always something. This ‘landing’ at 3 Flags was a bad one. Approaching the turn I was going a little too fast. Turning in, I braked too hard, and AGAIN I emptied the refrigerator onto the floor when the refrig door opened. “I said Sh-t real loud.” I knew (TOO LATE) I had approached the turn too fast.
Sherry checked us in, I disconnected the car and it would not start. I used the jumper cables and got it started. At our site (a good one BTW) I started to connect the water and could not stop a leak, in the connection. OUCH
I skipped that part and made the electrical hookups. Sherry slid the slide-outs out. Evelyn and Don had invited us to lunch (dinner); so we walked up.
WE had a great meal on their patio; BBQ meat balls, green beans, potato salad and rolls. Nice. It was good to see friends. It wasn’t long until friends from Lenoir, NC (Donna and Jim) dropped by. It was a fun get together. I just wanted you folks up there in the cold to know, despite a few problems, WE ATE OUTSIDE IN THE SUNSHINE (just sayin’!!!).
Back at the coach, after changing several fittings, the leak was fixed. It is good to be back in Florida, if only for a few weeks. I am ready to hit the sack.
This was the graduation photo I used yesterday. I should have mentioned, I was 8th from the left first row. 4th from the left is Dallas Fletcher , still a close friend from those days. He is featured in most of my books.
