Then there was that flash in the pan guy; Tiny Tim.

Then maybe our Tim can wrest his way into our hearts by buying us off. I can be bought very easily, as evidenced by my friendship with you.

If he shows up at Shipsahoy I can get him started on the buying of my true and loyal, monitory friendship.

Are you getting the panels from San Tan Solar in Gilbert? I'd heard of them from Scott of "Bus Grease Monkey" and Juan of "Beginning This Morning"; . San Tan sells used panels for under $0.50/Watt.

Sure did! I now have 8 of their 250 watt used panels. On Christmas Eve I bought the first 4 panels for $0.37/watt and no sales tax. They work great! I'm using them on my off-grid tiny house in the desert.

Unhappy

From the "why do I have to learn everything the hard way" file:

We left Gilbert today with two new to us solar panels and 4 new golf cart batteries. We spent last night in a Samís club parking lot expecting to be able to shop at 7 am. The virus has the store opening at 9 am instead. Thankfully, a wonderful Sam's employee let me buy them early since that was all I needed and they were right up front.

My last stop was Harbor Freight in Tempe for a new hand truck to lug the batteries into the house. When I opened the RV door I was greeted by a can of black olives. Uh oh, those were in the refrigerator.

It seems I forgot to travel latch the fridge door. On the floor was 2/3 of the contents. Of course it had been loaded full as I had shopped yesterday. There were bottles of juices, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, cheese, hard boiled eggs and a rotisserie chicken all on the floor.

I bet I wonít ever forget that again!

When I first read your reply I assumed you misspelled sanitize. I woke up at 3 am and had one of those ah ha moments realizing you where telling me to Sena-tize. You are so right! Keeping everything safe from her avoided lots of messes. But then she made lots of her own chaos.

Oh my gosh! I now have to go to bed with that picture playing over and over again. No, it will not put me to sleep, it might even give me nightmares.
