Hmm, what is the brat up to? Oh, you mean how is she NOW driving me nuts? Her latest is taking everything she can carry outside. She jumps out the bedroom window to the shed roof, then to the garage roof and finally to the RV roof. There she leaves bowls, water bottles, Lily's toys that she has stolen and even a small blanket. Oh and diapers that she decides she doesn't need to wear. She likes to taunt me thru the open roof vents. And she chases the crows away from her treasures.

I try to make it up there every other day to remove what she has deposited. We are parked close enough to the garage that I can step from the RV roof to the garage roof, but first I have to climb the RV ladder. And today is recovery day. I wonder what surprises she has up there this time.

MOUSE....... not covered by warranty of course....
Wonder, does insurance cover any?

How do you keep the pests out? Why isnt the wiring harness in a pvc conduit?

Di, I've only had critters get into the basement (that I know of). I now put those metal pot scrubbers around the cords and sewer hose to block access and rat size glue boards in the basement compartments where there are access holes.

Can't you train them pups to hunt the mice?
The mice would just get it where it went into the pvc conduit or came out... why the heck do they eat crayons and leave rainbow poops in the drawer?
Peppermint repels mice. there is a spray available people spray the undercarriage with. That was the first trouble we had with Honey... mice and the wiring in the engine area. Know that pain.

Hi Marty. Hi Bob! Hi Bess the Wonder Dog!!

We are currently paid to 8/4 but need to stay thru the 6th for Annies parents Anniversary. I hope to leave by the 11th.

Bonita is going in Monday for the Air Dryer replacement. I have been worn out since the surgery but doing a little better each day. The heat, humidity and rain we've had hasn't helped. I think the best medicine will be to hit the road again - but I'm glad I decided not to push to Maine. I would rather be there but it would have been too much too soon. :-(

Bob and I are headed to Branson the 10th and coming back the 12th for our anniversary. Honey and Bess are staying home this trip, maybe... I've been going back and forth on that in my mind. Plan to see a show. I'm not real wild about a road trip that far cramped in his little Miata, but I think it's a dream of his, so I'll oblige...once, maybe.

Too cloudy & smoky (due to CA wildfires) in the valley to see the meteor showers. ☹️

Instead, since Amazon video is FUBAR on the tv, watching Stranger Things on NetFlix.........alone........in a big.........dark.......house........

Might not be the best idea.........😁
