Had ourselves a quiet night but Kelly didn't sleep well due to a lot of itching from her liver condition. I woke up around 4 and had to fire up our furnace. I don't sleep so good if I'm cold. Kelly's different, she would do well in Alaska. Cranked up the generator so our furnace's fan didn't run the battery down. Aside from bumping into each other occasionally we are adjusting well to our smaller space. Pheebs too, although we all might have to strap 'Oooga-Oooga' horns on ourselves just to let each other know our proposed direction of travel while moving around inside the rig. Below are a few remaining Monday photos which didn't make it into yesterday's post.

It was 7 a.m. under clear and cool morning skies when we saw the longest freighter we'd ever seen coming upriver heading into Lake Huron. The Walter J. McCarthy Jr was under a full head of steam powering against the strong current. The waters of lakes Superior, Michigan, and Huron, all funnel through this narrow St. Clair River opening on their way to Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and the St. Lawrence River on their way to the North Atlantic Ocean.

Despite Kelly or I getting a good night's sleep our short shake-down cruise was a success. We are both totally happy and satisfied with the way the Winnie-Wagon performed. It's a great little rig and with a little tweaking here and there it will be an even greater little rig. Looking forward to future travels:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Some Reasonably Good Questions::1. Does a clean house indicate that there is a broken computer in it?
2. Why is it that no matter what color of bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
3. Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?'
4. Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?
5. On electric toasters, why do they engrave the message “one slice?” How many pieces of bread do they think people are really gonna try to stuff in that slot?
6. Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?
7. Why is it that no plastic garbage bag will open from the end you first try?
8. How do those dead bugs get into those closed light fixtures?
9. Considering all the lint you get in your dryer, if you kept drying your clothes would they eventually just disappear?
10. When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, “It's all right?” Well, it isn't all right so why don't we say, “That hurt, you stupid idiot?”
11. Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?
12. Is it true that the only difference between a yard sale and a trash pickup is how close to the road the stuff is placed?
13. In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?
14. How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?
15. If at first you don't succeed, shouldn't you try doing it like your wife told you to do it? And obviously if at first you don't succeed, then don't take up sky diving!
16. The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends, if they're okay, then it's you.
