Dang Cowboy, if you're that ambitious, you want to come do mine when I get back home?

That looks purrrrrty Cowboy. Once you get done with Aquamans, can you swing up to Michigan and do mine too?

LOL....it was filthy from our trip last week, and it was either wash it or make some new strings for my daughters bow. Figured the latter would give me something to do this evening!

OC, DH came home from golf with a brain buster headache, was gonna go out there and try to finish up the poles sooooo

I set the priorities FOR him...told him to take it easy for the day. He so seldom gets headaches, and since he hasn't even taken his sticks out of his truck since he got back, I *know* this is a bad one.

He'll get 'em done before we leave Wednesday, if he has to set up flood lights and do it in the dark. The man keeps his word, that much I know.

Nice place to browse and get ideas - kinda like a candy store, but you don't have money to spend... yet.

Headed to Winchester, VA in August?

It was kind of nice today so I sprayed in the foam to seal my holes from the Hott Rod install. Letting that set up before I caulk around the outside seams. Added 2 more crank down stabilizers per side. Man it is much more solid now. Sure I can get it to rock (I'm 170 pounds) but it's a camper. If I put some JTs I'm sure it would be totally solid but it's still 100% better than it was. Planned on washing it but ran out of time. That'll be next weekend maybe. Almost set to drag it up to the seasonal site. Now if that white stuff would melt up there. Yard is almost bare.

I guess we'll have to give him a pass for today, but tell him if he picks up his sticks tomorrow other than to take them out of the truck and put them up, he'll get another headache with possible bumps on his noggin.

He says (I read it to him) to tell you he's got HOURS into brushing 'em!


Sounds like you may have heard this before, OC:

Bein' hen pecked is OK, if'n ya like the hen that's peckin' ya, eh?

Or are you just eggin' me on to torment him?

Done *told* you, he wears the pants 'round here, I just tell him which pair he gets to wear. /snark

I read this to him also, and got his permission to post it before I hit submit.

You believe that, right?

We had a beautiful day here in North Texas, almost 80 degrees. We did a full wash, including a good roof cleaning and rubber roof treatment. Best of all though, we installed our Tri Glide pin box today. This thing is sweeeeeet!

Fired up the fridge, tested the AC, did a walk through to make sure everything is up to snuff.

Cause Friday, I'm going camping!

Did learn two things. One, my fridge will come down to 38* in about five hours, which is impressive. Two, my fridge fan is loud as heck, which isn't impressive. I'll be doing the silent dual fan mod maybe even this week.

Beautiful here today, 83*. Went out to where we have our baby stored and hooked up the Generator. Power would not go through the Progressive EMSHW50C protector, remote read N/G bond not present. Made a neutral ground bond with a 110v male plug and plugged it into the 110v outlet on the gen set, all is well now with power through the RV. Some gens are bonded, this one isn't. Installed a 10# ABC fire extinguisher where the tiny one was mounted from the factory and another in the bedroom. Put the small one in the front storage bay above the battery. Installed a smoke / fire detector in the bedroom. Need to pull it out, take it someplace and wash it. Now I am waiting for the awning poll brackets from OC to get here so I can get them installed.

Was going to camp this weekend, life screwed that up, so I handled other chores.

Is that life screwed that up or wife? Lol!!!!

Replaced the 4 TST 507 sensors with 4 new 507 Flow Thru's. Going to be much easier to add air when needed. They've lost 2# since we got home according to the new sensors.

To be honest, wifes son. Stepson called me while I was in Miami to say his car had quit running. Well, I tried diagnosing it over the phone, of course I was wrong. But that made the engine run better, so I'll take it.

It's a 1994 Buick, they're known for crank and cam sensor issues plus computer problems. Long and short, I chased my tail on it a couple of nights before finding out that the cam sensor, which was replaced 18 months ago and puts out a good signal was killing it. But that delayed me working on chores ignored by everyone else while I was out of town so instead of camping I got caught up.

So, life, wife. Little difference.
