STORM TOSSED WATERS LASH BAYFIELD'S BEACH
Bit of an earlier start to the morning & I really had my fingers crossed it wasn’t going to rain. Had to have the Motor Home in Grand Bend & after I just spent time cleaning it I didn’t want to have to take it out on wet dirty roads. The weather held together as Kelly & I pulled into Ron’s FOUR SEASONS PERFORMANCE driveway shortly after 9. Ron was his usual friendly energizer bunny self & you wouldn’t have known he had just flown to Florida & back yesterday arriving home late last night. Flew into the Tampa airport, rented a car & went to have a look at a potential Motor Home purchase. Didn’t like what he saw so it was back to the Airport & back home again. All in a day's work for Ron.
RON KRAUTER.....FOUR SEASONS PERFORMANCE
Our hydraulic levelers on the coach haven’t worked for over a year now & it took Ron all of about 2 minutes to figure out the problem. Solenoid switch!! Apparently it’s a common thing & especially if the levelers are not used a lot. He explained to me what happens inside the switch so in the future I will have to remember to frequently give those levelers an up & down run. Also decided to have him service our Onan generator as well with an oil change & filter plus a main kitchen electrical receptacle was on the fritz. Of course Kelly & I in our absentmindedness never thought to bring a second vehicle with us & Ron was going to need the coach for the day. Rather than have Kelly & I sit around in his driveway all day playing lawn darts & mooching food he gave us his big red shiny truck to head on back to Bayfield. Mighty nice of him but considering the lawn dart alternative, he knew what he had to do!!
Soon as we got home I fired up the Jeep & we headed off to Mitchell to visit my Uncle Harry. Mitchell is about a half hour drive east of us. Harry’s doing good & we took him outside for a spin in his new wheel chair. It was a warm Autumn day with a lively breeze & I could tell he was so happy to be outside & feel the sun on his face & the wind blowing through his hair. Well, not too much hair but what little there was blew about in the breeze.
We were home by 2 & Kelly was back on the job over at Deerpark. Hauled the garden hose out & watered the flowers & shrubs I had moved yesterday. As soon as we get the rig back home I hope we get a good soaking rain. Our Park’s water here is so chlorinated I almost hate to water anything because I don’t figure it’s doing the plants much good anyways. Luckily we have a big rain barrel so I scoop water from that for transplanting.
GRAND BEND'S BEACH
Someone sent in a website addy this morning for those sun screen visors we have in our Motor Home but do you think I can find those folks name now!! I did save the addy which is QUICK SHADES
YOU CAN EASILY SEE THE HUGE ADVANTAGE OF THESE SCREENS
The 5 Season's Park where we live near Bayfield is like no other. Basically we live in a Pine Forest with lots of room between neighbors. Almost like mini forests between lots. This area was originally planted a long time ago with row upon row of pine trees. Property ownerships changed & eventually a Park community was established here. Those long ago planted trees are now at their maturity & many of them have to come down simply for property & safety sake. We may return in the Spring to a slightly different looking Park.
WE HAVE MANY PINE TREES ON OUR STREET (so far)
Late note.......Solenoid switch won't be in for the Motor Home until Wednesday but all other work on the coach is done. Kelly & I will leave here at 6:15 a.m. Wednesday morning for London Ontario with both the Santa Fe & Jeep to do the hitch switch. Could be a long day & maybe I better take my hammer in case they need my expert help.............:))
I THINK RON, OUR PARK'S MAINTENANCE MAN HAD A BIT OF SLANT ON THIS MORNING
