Going to be busy for a few hours. Somehow the awning wrapped up the wire for the awning lights when it rolled up and broke it.

Unfortunately it looks like there will be some dismantling of the awning support (where the other end of the wire is) so I can repair the break. Need some smaller connectors as the ones I have with me are much too large.

Going to have to take one side of the awning supports off to get to the wire. Couple hours is past. I need to use Terry's camera. With it he was able to change a transmission in 11 minutes. Mind you he had a couple helpers and donuts. I am going for donuts tomorrow.

Saw a post from Curtis on another thread this morning, so he is still around.
Gordon,
We sure hope that you can make it to Jay's, that will be AWESOME. Hope that you can get your lights fixed without too much problem. Donuts always make things go better.

Still here Ya'll!
We got 5 inches of rain Friday. Lucky for us, many years ago, when I was shopping for a house in the Country being on high ground was a priority. Other than being isolated because all the low ground is under water we're OK!

I'm thinking of building a large pontoon barge to load my Motorhome on and set it right here in the yard. Water ever gets this high you can call me Noah!
Loved the movie "Waterworld".

Been busy with catching up on projects and getting the Motorhome and house remodels arranged. With Winter coming we are busy sealing up the house for the cold that coming.

Also got involved at our Church with a Homeless Ministry. We delivered 50 bags of warm clothing, socks, pullovers and sleeping bags yesterday to a homeless camp.

I have a large cargo trailer, and volunteered it to carry all the gear, tables and chairs they would need to make it happen. They had been using individual cars and I'm told it was a logistics nightmare before yesterday.

Having all the gear in one large container and being able to organize the distribution in an orderly fashion was a big advantage. There were two SUV's stuffed full of shoes that they gave away too. In addition to the clothing stuff we also carried 5 large tables and chairs and fed everyone pizza, donuts and fruit. Never seen so much pizza in one spot. I stood there in awe as this was my first trip to the camp. Quite and Education.

Funny side note. After it was all over I had to stop at Whataburger to get some lunch. I forgot to eat with everyone at the camp. So much going on it was amazing to watch and be a part of. I know some great people who set this up. Makes me proud of them.

Ya'll take care. Going to get some breakfast.

Should anyone want to contact me on the side, my E MAil is CurtisDrew@AOL.com since I'm not posting here everyday.

Morning all!

50 here this morning, and raining. Nothing like Curtis had, but about a 1/2" expected.

I may have a plan for the coach,,, found a company in Charlotte who would be happy to do the computer work, but not interested in the mechanical work. (the computer guy just does that all day, if they do the mechanical they need to send 2 guys) So my mechanic can assemble, and they can set it up. Hopefully Friday. The really good part is I get 2 bills !!!!! Fingers are crossed, just want to get back on the road and get this behind us.

I am at w--k today. They are remodeling, I have been moved to a different room, I cannot find a thing! LOL

Have a great day all!

L.

Good evening gang,
Rain here most of the day, but seldom more than a drizzle or heavy sprinkle, nothing like what some of the rest of the country have had. Went to breakfast with my father, it was nice to spend a little time with him.
Lloyd,
I hope that everything works out on the MH and you get the MH back up and running properly.
Have a great evening everyone,
Frank

Evening,
Coffee is good but cold
Bad new's @ the surgeon this morning. Rotary Cuff has a complete tare and is not repairable. The last time I had it repaired he told me not too do it again. He reminded me about that. He gave me a shot in the rear of the shoulder. He says that arthritis has already started so it had to have been torn for awhile and the pulling to start the lawn vac tore it completely. He is sending me to 1 session of therapy just to refresh my memory of the exercises I will have too do. So plans for AZ are back on track.
He say's 5-6 years and I'll need a shoulder replacement.
I know they do knee's but didn't know they can do that to a shoulder.
O well we'll add it to the list of problems.
I'm glad its not as bad as others problems.
Been raining for awhile. but no snow yet...
Tim

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee good this morning. Looks like more rain today, but at least it is warm.
Tim,
Sorry about the bad news on the shoulder. A friend had a shoulder replacement a couple years ago and is doing well, so there is nothing to worry about. Glad that you are still on track for AZ.
Frank

Good Morning,


Raining here this am and 52 degrees. I don't mind rainy days, good for napping and getting inside stuff done.


Tim, My husband had his shoulder replaced, his right one. Being right handed, I suggested he try doing a few things with his left hand for a few months prior to surgery. He asked why. I asked him if he would be able to brush his teeth with his left hand and he tried it and said it was hard. I suggested he do it with the left hand for the time left before surgery and it would get easier. Then told him he might also consider whipping his bottom with his left and he just looked appalled at me until he tried it. Worse than brushing his teeth he said.


So, I suggest you consider which hand you use for these daily activities and if it is the same hand as the surgery side will be on that you use the opposite side for a while prior to surgery. Good luck.


Otherwise, hope all are well with each of you. Have a good day. Lynne

Well we are not getting any rain here, for a few days anyway.

Yesterday was EPIC! 72 and sunny. Low breeze blowing. Melissa and I took all the lower windows out of the House and added more seals to them to seal out the cold.
Made a big difference. Windy and cold this morning, so we can't do the upstairs windows today.

Ouch Tim. Sorry to hear about the shoulder. One of my Guys, who worked for me when I was working, has had both of his done since he retired and he's doing a lot better. Only he's a complainer, so it took hom a long time to get back to normal. That, and he kept doing things he was told not to.

My left shoulder pops out of joint if I'm not careful, but so far nothing that is bothering me as long as I don't push it, or do something STUPID. I have electric start everything!!!! No more rope starts!

But, I was born a lefty, and grew up in Military schools where they demanded I learn to be right handed. So I'm very ambidextrious. Brushing teeth, hair, and commode work is easy with either hand. I shoot with either hand too!
I'm odd!

Thanks bap!

Headed over to the Grandsons this morning to help him learn how to play catch and his throwing. He's five and a little slow in outdoor sports. Runs like a Duck!

But can type on his computer like a teenager!

Good afternoon, all. Went for awhile without wifi internet. Back at the S&B today, so we are all connected again. It rained here all day yesterday and most of the night. It was a welcomed rain. Kind of chilly this morning at 50 degrees, so the coffee tasted pretty good. Glad to see the positive attitudes from the folks with medical issues. Getting ready to move the fiver to the host site on Sunday so I can volunteer host next month.
