upstairs toilet in the master. Going to be busy little beavers.
Will be here till Nov.6, in southern Ca. till the 13th, in L.V. till Nov.27.
Palm Springs till Dec.4. Then to Cocopah R. V. Park for 2 months.
Still getting around. We hit 33 states since Jan 18.


Steve, glad you're out on the rainbow again. Probably see you in Dec or Jan.

Be careful all, drive safe.
<Groan> I hate that you have so much hard labor ahead! Won't you be glad when you get it sold? Not having a S&B to worry about is the best part of FT RVing.

We'll be in Yuma some this winter (so I can slip over the border to restock a few essentials.) Sena's insulin was only $12/vial down there. That savings alone pays our gas. I foresee lots of mutating in AZ this winter! Hope we can catch up with you 2!

Oh yeah!

Ours is also in the shop also but hey, what's new, right? Actually this time it is rather minor things. one paneling of ceiling cloth started to as we were getting it out of the shop the last time. They had put a new roof on. Hopefully the glue will hold this time.

One other thing was the two seams running the top of the big awning to the bottom came apart - both seams. (19ft awning). I had the shop take the awning of and I took it to a sail-maker. They stitched the seams. There 'was' no thread on any of the seams. The manufacturers use a tape to hold the two pieces together. Well it lasted 9 years so it must work somewhat. Let's hope the stitched seams hold longer. Cost me $127 for the seamstress and a new awning would have been 800+ dollars. I figure it will be two hours of labor for the RV place taking it of and putting it back on so I'm still ahead of the $$ game - for now.

We are at home until 20 something of October. We have church friends that moved to the Flippen, AR area. They have a large cabin in the woods there. They would get extended weekends there for the past 5 years. Made it permanent S&B this summer. We'll spend 2 nights at a nearby CG.

Di, your landscaping in the front yard looks grand. Youse guys should be proud of the finished product. Sore muscles heal. . . . rocks are forever.

Barb. . . . did you really have to remind us of the pesky bugs in Florida. It's the only downside of our experience in our CG (park models with a few spots for RVs . . two miles from Bokobird's resting spot).

BTW, the "no see'ums" leave me alone. Mary Ann needs to use anti-bug stuff.

That's the #1 reason I got my screen house. My plan is to be able to enjoy the outdoors in the evening minus the bugs. I really only seem to be bothered around dusk with them dang bugs. And where I stay, there aren't any ants so unlike Barb, I don't have/see that issue. I also feel the closer to the water you are the better off you are. I lived in Tallahassee for a couple years (30+ miles inland) and never really like it. Staying right along the Little Manatee River (or anywhere near major water) helps with temps and humidity, I guess it's maybe more breezy or whatever.

Sorry for dredging up bad memories. Fire ants ate me alive. For those who haven't had the privilege -- the bite of a fire ants feels like you have been hit with hot embers. Then the next day all the bites develop pus filled blisters. It takes 7-10 days of annoying itching before they heal.

Ii usually wear Crocs that have holes in the upper part of the shoe. That means I got fire ant bites on my toes and the top of my feet. I spread Amdro (the only pesticide that works) around the coach. But... whenever else I went they attacked me.
