Tradition, Tradition!

Tired arms?  I guess I have tired arms.  Today the wax on / wax off marathon will end.  We’ll need to pull in the slides so I can do above them and that will bring this job to an end.  The coach looks great, by the way.  One of our neighbors was looking over my work and he was surprised when I told him our fifthwheel was six years old.  It’s a 2006 but we took delivery of it in September of 2005 so, this fall we will have actually owned it for seven years.

Yesterday Judy w*rked on shining the inside of the coach.  She took down the bedroom curtains to wash them.  Washed around the windows and dusted throughout the house.  This is what my mom would have referred to as the spring cleaning tradition.  She always did a in depth house (deep) cleaning every spring and every fall.  That included washing the windows inside and out.  It took her the better part of a week to do it all; it would have taken longer if she hadn’t done it twice a year.  So anyway, Judy was in the spring cleaning mode (and still is, I guess).

I hope to get the windows washed after I finish the waxing and, then, when we get to Tennessee, we’ll borrow the kid’s carpet shampooer and do the carpets. Somewhere down the road, I’ll get to wash the insides of the windows.  Yep, traditions like spring and fall cleaning is something that we can live with.  It keeps our home in tip top shape and looking good.  Just like Tevye said, “Tradition, tradition, tradition!”

Our friends, Dave and Jan Verse, stopped by for a visit.  It’s been a couple years since we last saw them.  They were some of the first “on the road” friends that we made.  We met them in the fall of 2006 while we were workamping at KOA Nashville.  They had just bought a Mobile Suites fifthwheel from a dealership in Nashville and were getting some service work done on it.  A couple of years later they upgraded “their ride” to a Phaeton motorhome.  It was a wonderful to see them again and we had a great visit.  Did I ever tell you that one of the nicest things about this lifestyle is the people you meet?

It’s looking more and more like we’ll end up rescheduling our departure date.  The news is referring to the storm making it’s way east as “extreme weather conditions”.  It will stay pretty much north of Rainbow Plantation, but will be passing over Tennessee.  So, we may not get out of here until Wednesday or Thursday.  No sense in driving into tornados.

Until Next Time, May God Bless  - - - - - - - - -
