Same old, same old....

When we are sitting in one spot for a while, it's hard to find things to write about. No, not really. It's easy to write but it's hard to find things of interest to others to write about.

We have been busy doing chores, going to the movies, ordering a few things for the rig and us, doing laundry, cleaning, etc, etc, etc. Same old stuff we'd be doing if we were in a sticks & brick (ie; a house).

We made a trip to the Apple store in Orlando, thinking we needed to exchange some adapters. We didn't but we enjoyed visiting the mall (very upscale) and trying Firehouse Subs for the first time (yummy).

Free wifi, always a good thing when you are killing time.
Projector screens showing various scenes while music plays. Very nice!
This beautiful Harley-Davidson motorcycle was inside a health store. 





Stu spent a couple of days enjoying his former co-workers, attending the annual retired firefighter reunion. I went for one evening but otherwise stayed busy working on my computers and writing (okay, and shopping and laundry, etc, etc, etc). No photos but you can see some in past posts (always in February). It's always fun to see everyone and I enjoyed my evening and he really enjoyed his couple of days.

We have had to make some cruise changes, dropping our trip to Europe (for several personal reasons) and hopefully moving our May 28th cruise to one in March (we really don't want to be in Florida in June...ugh!). Europe will always be there but family has to come first.

So we may be headed out of Florida by the end of March, time will tell. That would allow us to visit our property for a couple of weeks before moving on to Maryland and Stu's possible cataract surgery.

We are still trying to walk a couple miles each day, around the park here. We need to work up to two trips around at least 5 days a week. We also talked about needing to slow down on the snicky-snacky stuff and stick to more meat and veggies (less carbs). Wish us luck!

Ciao for now!

STOP! Door stops, that is - a little fun for everyone.

Thought I'd share a couple of "fun" things I came across recently.

The first are these fun food door stops: melted ice cream cone, melted chocolate bar and banana peel. Made me laugh!




Then we have the animals: cat paw and dead mouse.




There is also a more traditional mouse, traditional cat and traditional dog.





High heels for the fashionistas and then, for the minimalist there is STOP!



Of course, we can't forget the Wicked Witch door stop.


But for me, it would have to be the frog door stop! Might have to get one to save for our future cabin. ;)


Ciao for now!

All jacked up?

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Some of you remember our little (okay, not so little) whoops when we parked the rig last October. If not, you can read about it here. We had used the mobile tech service just down the road from us in past years and rather than go through the hassle of trying to get the trailer back onto the Freightliner, move up to Wildwood and wait for repairs there, we called to see if they could replace/repair them for us.

No problem, they said. We ordered the parts before we left on our cruise and they were here when we got home. We made an appointment for them to come out and voila! New jacks with new motors, installed and good to go. Thank you, Pro-Tech! Here are a couple of pics.




Stu got to use one of his new toys, err, tools.


This is what it looks like now, later this week we will hook back up to Freddie (the Freightliner) and re-level the rig, getting us back to where we should have been in October. LOL!



When we returned from our cruise, we knew it was time to replace the batteries in Freddie. Nothing Stu did worked and they were completely dead. They've given us a good six years of service and I know we have drained them at least 3-4 times (never a good thing). Off to Sam's Club and we're good to go again.

We have been trying to walk around the park most days, getting around 3500 steps when we do (we are both using fitness trackers). On a walk last week, we ran into a gentleman wearing a 'particular' shirt. He was quite impressed when I told Stu that I needed that shirt. Thanks to ebay, I now have one!



Ciao for now!
