My guess is that Mackinaw Mill probably sprays for skeeters ... but it's just a guess

She shuts, she locks, and nary a gap. Replace the rotten weather stripping, get a tailgate seal, and she is done. It is how a Minnesota/Alaskan gal gets er dun.Click image for larger version

Story time for camp fire comments:

Yesterday we were at Poncho's Pond RV park. What an amazing park by the way. Earlene's key fob for the car was not working so after a few stops and some lunch we went to the Ford Dealer. Minor fix new battery and all was fine. Now I know how to get the fob apart for the next time.

Anyhow, we stopped and picked up a loaf of bread and decided to stop at the bank across the street and draw out some of Earlene's easily made money. (She was Civil Service.) The drive to the ATM at the bank was extremely narrow but I made it in without incident. As I was withdrawing her money, for me to spend, she pointed out the metal bollard just to my left front. Moving forward I cleared the bollard with room to spare. As I turned to the left, after clearing the bollard, I had a Herbie's jinx. Left rear tire caught the #$*& curb. I pulled over, got out and looked and all looked well. However, TPMS started showing 0 psi. Stopped again, got out, saw the TPMS was bent, pulled it a little and the valve stem cam out. I played like the little boy on the Dutch dike and held my finger over the open valve preventing any more air from escaping. I did not want it to go flat.

I was wondering if I could pull a Tim and try running beside the car with Earlene driving and keeping my finger on the valve. I decided that was not a good idea. I inew had some valve stem covers so I asked Earlene to give me one. I was able to get it on and we wer able to drive a few miles back to the Ford place. All fixed and on the road...but wait, more to the story.

While getting service established at the Ford place, Earlene came walking from the car with a distraught look on her face. You know she had some money stolen out of her purse at a grocery store. Well, we just came from the grocery store to the bank and to the Ford place and she exclaimed, "My cell phone is missing!" Wow, what else can go wrong, right? Nothing I could do until the tire was fixed and that would be some time. I just could not believe the luck. Guess we will need to back track and see if we can find it. I do have "Find My Phone," and I was just going to activate it when Earlene came walking toward me again with her cell phone in her hand.

You know that valve stem cap I asked her to get? It was in the glove box. Can you see where I'm going with this? Yep! She found her phone in the glove box.

We do laugh about these things but she continues to make snide remarks about my misadventures. I on the other hand am very nice and don't say anything. (Until the right moment.)
