Congratulations all round, I think, on the new house! It's been a rather long process, but brought to a good conclusion. Your daughter must be so, so excited.

So! Back on the road again, eh? Bet you're ready for that after so long in one spot. Cheers!

A second bout of lake life will occur around the 4th then it's RVMooning time!

Jeff tell your daughter congrats on her accomplishments! College, job and a house! You should be proud!


Sounds like tired work campers! Can you chew that much fun every day, Tim?
What are your July dates there? We will go to Hayden-ville for her birthday July 7.

So winner, winner. Chicken dinner Tim! Funny thing is, I was doing the lint cleaning process. So the washer was empty and I had adjusted the water level in setting 11 to just above the mid point, stopped the fill process, set it to 12 to complete the wash cycle. This clears the lint out of the machine and system. Went outside to enjoy the weather while it completed the wash cycle. And what to my surprise did I see... no tiny raindeer but Bonita began to rain water on the ground. Oh the humanity!


You're a lucky man!
I've heard that the outdoor shower feature for the W/D is about 200 clams. They musta sent it out without checking the build sheet.
But, this too shall pass.

Today's a day I'm just as happy to be in a house w/ a real basement ... 30+ mph winds, & blowing dust. Normally I'd walk the 1.2 miles round trip up the lane to the road & back, but it doesn't seem the sensible thing to do today, not even w/ a dust mask on. Nope. Not doin it.

Y'all be safe!

I've already checked it out, probably a weekend trip for me to go there and back Not really that far away from here either Gots lots of things to manage prior to August though, so not sure if that's going to happen.

Oh, I have no doubt that Earlene COULD handle Citrus on such a gizmo, I just think that it might nag at Wayne's conscience to have her doing it. Unlike her roof cleaning adventures where he seems to delight in watching her slave away.

She looks even more beautiful sitting next to Gwen! They'll be a stunning pair traveling down the road.
