This Switch Is For You

One thing that I’ve always wanted was a switch inside the house to turn off the power to the hot water heater.  I had to go outside and remove the hot water heater cover in order to turn off the power.  There are several times a year when we are plugged into 20 amp power which requires us to convert to gas for heating the water.  Well, my electrician showed up at ten o’clock sharp and we began to look things over to come up with an implementation plan. 

However, while we were at it, we discovered a water leak in the “nipple” that connects the two water filters together.  That required us to stop and remove the water filters from the coach, take the components apart, and re-tape the joints.  Once reassembled there were no more leaks; then it was onto the project at hand. 

After a couple of trips to the stores (the stores being Coastal RV for a switch and Home Depot for wire) we were able to finish the job.  Now we have an inside switch to turn off the power to the Hot Water Heater. it resides right next to the switch to turn on the gas to the Hot Water Heater – how neat is that?

But, right dead square in the middle of the switch installation project, Feed Me showed up.  So, Mike, Peggy, Judy, and I made tracks for Fat Boy for lunch and a Frappe.  Fat Boy has the best Frappes ever.  They are nice and thick, you can actually turn them upside down with nothing coming out.  It takes a long time to swill them down and you have to go very, very slow or else you’ll get a nose freeze and that hurts.

Mike and Peggy joined us for dinner of succulent Royal Red Shrimp, steamed broccoli, and boiled red potatoes.  Another fine meal indeed.  And, as always, we enjoyed our time together.  After Mike and Peggy returned home, Judy and I watched a little tube.  MASH, Mary Tyler Moore, and Dick Van Dyke was on ME TV.  There was a White House Performance on PBN recognizing Burt Bacharach and Hal Davis for their musical contributions.

We have no idea how things are going to unfold today.  It’s supposed to be another rainy day, but right now it’s just real foggy outside.  I’m sure that we’ll come up with something that needs doing before the day is over.  If not, it will be a stay at home and read day.  We could use one of those.
