The sun returned to Pensacola this afternoon, so I put on my funky black cowboy hat, went out onto the patio, and carefully arranged my spinning wheel & alpaca fleece, chair & beverage to take advantage of both sunshine & shelter from the breeze. It was lovely.

A bit later the sun had moved, of course. Since It was cool in the shade of the palm trees, I moved forward & a bit closer to the RV, again for sunshine & shelter, & started spinning again.

Suddenly & with absolutely NO warning, I was drenched from overhead with 2 or 3 gallons of icy cold water. Imagine the dance moves I made!

Rain water had collected on the canvas slide topper during the night & for some reason chose to dump its load when it did. Without warning.

My jeans & shirt are still drying in the shower & the (holey) hat on its rack.

Sue please don't report that to Thor! They'll spin that news into next years brochure as "Automatic Shower".

Have fun! Hi to Martin.

Sue, can you make a video of your dance moves?
Iíve found that slide awnings will not dump without a victim present!

So there is no victimless crime?

I tried to hire the kids as buyers for when we go to the Mesa Market. The girls said ďNo, we like schoolĒ. The boy said ďYou bet!Ē He settled for a daily case of PopTarts

I truly loved their creativity and gregarious manner. Very charming!

Need I say, I got a chuckle.

Oh yes! I have dance moves of Mary and would love to have them of Sue. I hold them in reserve for special occasions.
Right Tim?

Sue, I can relate though. Picture rain, gets under slide topper, pull slides in, move forward and first time touching the brakes guess where the water goes. Yep! Cold awakening.

Yep, had that same problem at the first ever GC. New slider sweep installed took care of that.

Connie is getting smaller everyday!

What you can see below are the framed walls between the bathroom and bedroom and the bedroom and living/kitchen areas. The doors slide on barn door type hardware.

Hopefully the insulation will arrive tomorrow. You can see a sample on the left. It’s formed to match the corrigations of the exterior walls and is held in place with glue. The black bars are the embedded studs in the styrofoam panels.

It’s now getting so I can see us actually living inside.
