Good Morning Gang,
Coffee good this morning, weather not too bad either. A little cloudy but supposed to clear up and be sunny by this afternoon. Christmas in July here at the park yesterday, a lot of the seasonals had their christmas decorations and lights up outside their units. Santa and Mrs. Claus were riding on the hayride last night. A lot going on here.
Frank

Good Morning Gang,


Had my coffee this am and fell asleep in my chair, Don't know the last time I did that. It was kind of nice. Then I went outside and worked on the de-oxidizing. Plan to put the first coat of Zep wax on the back today. Will see what it looks like before applying it to the whole thing. Sure is looking better though. There are spots on the sides I can't seem to get clean enough but I think the PO had spilt something there and didn't clean it off and it is there for good.


Hope you all have a great day! Lynne

Evening everyone;
Janet and I along with 2 other couples have made it to Montrose, CO for a bike rally. So far put on 2106 miles. Stops in Havre MT, Cody WY, Silt CO and Canon City CO. Had some great rides with good twisties. Saw some very interesting scenery and attractions. Tomorrow going on an organized ride on the million dollar highway. Next day on the Black Canyon ride.

Hope everyone has a great time. I have been doing a lot of reading trying to catch up on all of the activities on the forum and the threads.

Morning,
Coffee going down well. Still on yesterdays brew.
beamisl you should try Mothers Brazilians carnauba paste wax it will take the oxidation off and give a nice shine, I used it on mine this spring and was happy with the results.
We are planning on going home tomorrow, my brothers say's we are welcome to stay if we want. He says his property hasn't looked this good for years. I mow and weed whip for 3-4 days then start all over 2 months now. I really would like to stay but I am low on propane the fridge is working flawlessly and it has run on the propane for the entire time we have been here I think that is pretty good.
I bought a fishing license and would like to go fishing before we go, so we might just stay a few days longer. A lot of Bass just off his dock, the fisherman are there every morning. Never caught a bass before so that would be fun and tasty so I have heard,,,
The neighbor lady made rubons(sp) and we had them on the pontoon cruise last night, they were very good and so was the cruise.
I need to replace the 3 batteries on the MH and a fuel pump on the 64.
That's about it for now
Stay cool.
Tim

Good Evening Gang,
Coffee could have been good this morning, it was about 430 when I had it so I was still sleeping. Took Rita's son for his throat surgery, and am happy to repot that everything went well, and also his kidney doctor called him yesterday( yes, on Sunday) and told him that he didn't need to keep his appointment, his blood work numbers came back a lot better and that the medicine that he is on should do the trick. Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers.
Happy days,
Frank
