Pilot Knob RV Resort, Winterhaven, CA
Wednesday, Feb. 19th already. Where has this month gone? Well, we should know, we’ve been busy enough! Bill woke and got up ahead of me today and it was closer to 7 when I joined him. We sat together and read a few blogs. I was biding time to go walking while he finished his coffee. At about 7:45 we went for our walk. It was later than usual which means I was getting hungry (well, thirsty for my fat-filled tea).
|I know the sun is in those clouds somewhere|
|This was the kapop I was looking for|
We stopped to chat with Keith’s park neighbours, from Wasaga Beach, Ontario and it was a nice chat but after 15 minutes, I was impatient and whispered to Bill “Let’s go”. We didn’t finish the full gamut of our walk because at that point, I just wanted to get home. Such a party pooper, eh? Once I got my tea and took my vitamins and other pills (I feel like I’m taking a lot right now), I was good to go.
|Bill worked on his model car for a bit|
Around 9, Bill had gone out to fly with Keith but I didn’t follow. I sat and read my book, finishing my tea. At 10:30, I started breakfast of bacon and eggs and we both took care of cleaning up the dishes. We’d noticed that our slide out tray under the buffet cupboard was getting really stiff. A few days ago, 3 of the small ball bearings dropped out of the track so we knew something was up. Today, Bill pulled the drawer out completely and began to see what the problem was.
|The drawer has been removed, as have all the ball bearings|
This tray holds our toaster, Keurig and Madame IP and there is an outlet on the back wall to plug a couple of things into. It is a fair-sized tray and built of solid cherry so it isn’t that they are too heavy.
|These are the items that go on the drawer|
|I cleaned the drawer off and Bill replaced it|
|With some bending and ball bearing replacement, Bill worked on the track|
Jim also hurried over to offer assistance. An electrical cable from the slide-out got caught, causing a short, hence causing it to spark. The owner was grabbing the fire extinguisher but didn't know how to operate it. Bill did that for him. Luckily, not much was required. Jim and Bill did some quick thinking, changed a couple of things so it shouldn’t happen again, and they were on their way. They were in the process of hooking up so we know what that is like when you have a plan. They were very appreciative and Bill left them with one of our cards.
Back home, Bill finished bending the track and between us we replaced the bearings and the drawer now works great again. The track was indeed bent and that is why the bearings came out and why it was stiff. All better now! I had had my shower when he was flying and had put my bathing suit on when I dressed. At 12:30, I headed up to the pool for a couple of hours. It is a perfect day for it. 81F in the forecast and it was already 73F. Yes! (hand pump in the air)
|This is the kind of week we're in for|
|I wasn't kidding, there was no one else in the pool|
Around 2:15, I walked back and Bill and I got our Happy hour cooler prepared. We met at Kim and Ken’s where Doug and Keith joined us on cue, or so it seemed. We covered ground on many things today but I won’t mention them. Sometimes what happens at H.H. stays at H.H. We had a good time, visiting with each other until around 5 or so. I think it was closer to 5:30 when Bill and I left after we made plans to go along with K & K to the AZ Market tomorrow afternoon.
|Happy Hour, fun in the sun|
|Quick, easy supper for me|
Thank you for your visit.
