Oh we're good here in North Central Texas!
The Freezing rain lasted less than 2 hours then headed to Arkansas. It's 34 degrees here and warming up.

Just enough to get my Riding Lawn Mower Seat wet.
I left it outside the other night while a friend and I worked on his Expedition Camper Trailer. So the following morning I decided to move it back inside and got the seat of my pants wet for the effort.

Spent most of the day yesterday pouring over wiring blueprints for the harness I'm about to build for my Allison 1000 that I'll be putting in my Big Girl.

Finally talked to a Canadian Company who has the connectors for sale. $360.00 just for the connectors for the stand alone harness.
(And that doesn't include the Transmission Computer.)

Buying one pre-made is cost prohibitive.
You'd think I was trying to buy Space Shuttle Parts!
There's less than 50 wires to it.
It's not Rocket Science! Unless you're buying one.....

Coffee is good this morning. Headed out to spend the day with the youngest Grandson. He's 4 and a half and is Too Darn Smart. The kid is a whizz with his Kindle!

Good morning! Looking for 40s today with sunshine so we should see some badly needed clearing of ice off the roads! Now they're talking another round this weekend! Don't really hate winter, it's just the cold I really don't like anymore! As I'm stuck inside my to do list keeps getting longer, and that's the list I make! DW's list for me is unreasonable already!

Morning everyone.
Sitting here this morning drinking coffee and listening to the ficus berries bouncing off of the roof. It is noisier on a fiberglass roof than a rubber roof. Have to sweep the patio a couple times a day to sweep the berries off.

The trees are really nice - down side is the berries and leaves that continually fall. Still the shade is great. Lawn chair, book, cold drink and large shade trees make a great place to have a nap. I have been reading the same book for a month and still not done. By the time I finish it I will be able to start it again.

Sorry for all of you in the cold weather. We will be heading back shortly. I left the battery in the tractor as I know I will have to push snow when we get home. We started participating in a winter sport just so there was something to look forward to during the winter conditions.

Probably drive home and come back later to pick up the coach. Can not see any positive rationale to drive the coach on salt covered highways. The ribbed tires are also an unknown. Ribbed on the truck do not perform well but the 4 x 4 and slowing down or stopping under marginal conditions have worked OK.

Gordon,


If you don't have to come back, don't! It is cold and I agree with driving on the salt roads. They are white with the stuff. Where are you at now? You may have said before but I forgot if you did.


I am keeping a journal of places to go when I retire and we start escaping MI in the winter. I would love to full time but I think we need to do this for a year or two first. If you can send info about the CG I assume, then I can check it out and write it down.


Well, hope you all have a nice day, I always enjoy my day off. Lynne

Hip replacement on April 6. Pre-op on March 16. Blood work on March 13. Have to head home.

I worked as a manager for a large highway authority for 30 years. Managed construction and maintenance for about 1200 miles of road. Winter travel is very familiar to me.

We are in Yuma area. Our resort is full, there are only overnight sites available. Lots of nice campgrounds in area. 150 miles to San Diego, Palm Springs and Phoenix if you want to travel. 15 minutes from Los Algodones, Mexico.

Hi Lynne;
Found this link in another thread.

On the surface this looks like a pretty good coach if it has the floor plan you are looking for. Something to consider.

Gordon,


Thanks but want a gaser. Sorry about the hip. I see the knee surgeon March 11th, then tests I am sure, and then see from there. I can't even lay my left leg against my right cause it hurts so bad. If I move at night and touch it it wakes me right up.


Thought I could get by until retirement but not going to happen. Try to stay warm everyone, it's gonna be real cold tonight here. Lynne

Smile Goooooood morning!

Just setting here at home by the computer. Thinking how lucky we are and have been on the western slope of CO. We have missed just about all of the bad weather this winter. Being a SD Boy, almost , well actually do, miss a little shoveling. Especially now that retired and "Don't have to" shovel. lol Is about 25 here now. Actually, went about all of last week with lows in low 30's. Todays high should be in the low to mid sixty's. "Harley Ride". lol Hope everyone has a pleasant and safe day. Smile!!! "Spring is on the way".

Good morning all.
Had a great day with my grandson yesterday.

I'm up early today!
Decided to take the wife to a dinner and a movie theater to see the American Sniper movie for lunch today.

A cool little place where you sit in big recliners and they wait on you in your seat while you watch a movie on a big screen.
I think there are only 8 other people going to be there with us. Early Matinée movies are like that. No screaming kids or teenagers with cell phones texting each other.
