Woo Hoo, we got our fiver back.

From the shop. I can't believe it took three weeks to fix our frig. I know it just sat on their lot the first week waiting on parts, but when I called at the end of the second week I got the run around a little. I was told the parts were in but they had some jobs ahead of ours, does this seem to be common with rv repair? Anyway the job is done, we had no out of pocket expense, and the work looks up to par to me. Now I'm Jonesin' to go camping!!! We are going to be spread thin for a while, I run a garage with my Father In Law and he just had a double bypass and valve replaced in his heart today. He's doing fine, but I have to make sure the company we work for can keep their equipment harvesting oranges.

stuff

Hard work never hurt anyone! Sorry to hear about your FIL. He will do fine. I had three bypasses in 2001 so I know what he is going through. Took me a couple of months to get back to work, then three weeks after that I went on a three week vacation pulling our tt all over the place!!!.

Chin up and Merry Christmas to you and your family........

We saw my F I L last night, and he looked like he was doing good in spite of the pain he was obviously in. My wife asked him if he felt like he had been hit by a truck, and he said yes then told me I was driving. Of course I told him he would have no doubt if I ever ran him over with a truck. Then when our son went in to see him, he tried to show him where all the nurses shaved him. So this let us know he's doing fine. Jolly I feel for you man, but I'm going to try and make it out camping in a couple of weeks. (Sorry, I just have too) Oh and how do you harvest snowballs? Is this where snowcones come from?

My F I L got to go home Sunday, he's a lot happier there. 16 above, are you nuts? You've told me before it's all what we are used to, but that just sounds too cold. My wife has never seen snow, I haven't seen it since I was about ten myself. As far as skiing goes, I still see people water skiing around here. I wish I could get the boat out, we did get out for about an hour the day before Thanksgiving. I know we are spoiled down here, and I hope none of you have been effected by the storm up north too much. Oh, and I bet your trailer looks pretty cool surrounded by snow.

Yea....I'm nothing but jealous. I wish the season were longer, but I think I appreciate it much more once it finally arrives. We won't start camping again until May. Bummer.
