I thought you were imploding a bridge???

Darn, it didn't upload my video. :(. Anyway, there was a great 4 piece band playing Blue Ridge Mountain Music. They were great! I'll post a photo, since the video won't upload.

You were five miles from my home when you were at the Mountain Music center. Unfortunately, work hasn't gone away for us yet. :(

We build bridges tough around here!

Rumor has it that the final straw was a Samsung Phone brought it down.

For those that might not have seen the story, a planned implosion of a 92 yo bridge was planned yesterday morning. Thousands lined the banks to watch, local TV coverage was live and everything went off as planned and on time. All except following the explosions the bridge was still standing!

Seems the bridge kind of fell into itself and appeared wedged upright and intact. Five hours later a cable had been attached and on the 8th try pulled the bridge down. It made the National News.

Not quite as news worthy as the Arkie bridge but I thought I would share Sena's latest way to torment me -- she decided Lily didn't need to wear a collar. I kept finding it in the bed or dropped on the floor. A small zip tie now secures it.

What next?

What! You zip tie it to Sena so she doesn't drop it in the bed or on the floor. Wow! Fantastic.

Replace the door when the seal goes bad? Sounds like another gotcha by an RV product supplier. No wonder people hate Norcold!
I have a Norcold and the gaskets are not supposed to be replacable.

That's a crappy job and I'm glad you are doing it and not Sena.

Hoping to be in Prescott October 18 with 2 Sisters, and Mutants Nissa and Victoria. About a week and then to Sisters in Mesa. At both, will eat too much. Yes, much like a GC without RVMs or a Kimono!
Or Steve's butt....of pork, nor his omnom briskit.

Well, she's at it again! Sena has learned how to lock the RV cabin door -- the one that uses a small lever that is flipped down to lock the door. I as replacing the black tank gate valve and went back inside to get another tool. The first time I found it locked I thought maybe I had mistakenly tripped the lock. The second time I knew it was Sena locking the door.

Since she can't be outside without a leash because of the witchy neighbor, I leave her inside and unsupervised more. And she repays me by locking me out!!!

BTW -- putting on the new valve was easy peezy!

Oh, they are selling, not buying. Hey Colleen, can you post a pic so we can all meet Freda before she's gone?
