Well Okay I'm slowly getting my 'Blogger' bluster under control & after spending some time with the Blogger format today I've managed to work out a few of the bugs that were adding to my bluster. I still much prefer 'Microsoft's Live Writer platform because of it's ease & control but if it's gone forever I guess I will just have to live with it & adapt back to Blogger's format again if I want to keep my Bayfield Bunch post going. Imagine how frustrated I was Wednesday night when I published my post & only saw the photos & no printing. Had to turn the air in our sunroom half a dozen shades of blue before I was able to figure out the problem & correct it. Unfortunately I corrected the text in a bright yellow but hope tonight's toned down color will be easier on the eyes & I'm hoping tonight's text turns out to be a tad larger as well.
|OUR FOREST WALKING PATH IS FILLING IN NICELY AGAIN THIS YEAR|
How nice to have ourselves a cooler day going on. My good friend Richard picked me up at 10 a.m. & we headed off on a backroads coffee tour this morning. Hadn't done that since last summer sometime & of course it was a couple hours very well spent again. With both Richard & having reclusive introverted personalities it's amazing we ever get out at all. We did agree to get ourselves another coffee brew-up going again in a couple weeks. Still more of the world's ills to be resolved. Richard & I have been good friends for 40 years now & I have written about our friendship a few times before over the years.
Sent an email to Forest City Motorhomes with a photo of the broken part on the Big EEE's hydraulic leveler pump last night & they answered this morning saying 'Good Morning Al and Kelly. Yes, this is definitely something we can take care of here at the dealership. This piece looks to be the actuator valve that has come apart. I have never seen one do that before. We do keep that part in stock, so it “should” be a relatively quick fix, provided we can get the old valve out.'
We will probably combine this repair with Kelly's next appointment at London's University Hospital on June 18th. Will take the rig & tow the Jeep leaving the Motorhome at Forest City Motorhomes while we slip over to the hospital. Hopefully repairs will be done & we can pick up the rig a few hours later & head back to Bayfield. Well that's the plan anyway.
Well I'll keep tonight's post relatively short just in case I have it all Bloggered up again. Like I said before I am not at all optimistic Google will rectify the Live Writer problem. Why would they?? Let's just hope I'm wrong about this.............but I doubt it:((
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Needing some clothes cleaned in a hurry, a man searched the small Georgia town in which he was visiting until he found a sign which read: "Cleaning and Pressing, 24-Hour Service." After explaining his needs, he said, "I'll be back for my suit tomorrow." "Won't be ready until Saturday," replied the proprietor. "But I thought you had 24-hour service," the customer protested. "We do, son," the proprietor said reproachfully. "But we only work eight hours a day. Today's Thursday - eight hours today, eight hours Friday, eight on Saturday. That's 24-hour service."
---As an engineer in an upscale hotel, I was asked tAs an engineer in an upscale hotel, I was asked to repair or replace the television in a guest room. When I arrived, the couple was watching a picture one-third the size of the screen. I knew all our spare sets were in use, so I figured what the heck - I struck the side of the TV with the heel of my hand. The picture returned to full size. "Look, honey," said the wife to her husband. "He went to the same repair school you did."
