Dreary Day, Calling Friends and Pizza Get Together.

Our Location today is Moore Haven, Florida, U.S.A.

By 7:00 this morning I just couldn’t lay in bed any longer so even though the sun wasn’t up yet I still opened the blinds in the back rooms. Finally after I had finished reading all the morning blogs and E-mails did I start getting things ready for our breakfast. It was nearly 8:30 by the time Kathy walked in the kitchen and we ate breakfast while watching the local weather forecast. Apparently the short glimpse of the sun rising at 7:19 this morning would be the last that the sun would be visible throughout our day as the sky was thickly blanketed with clouds. Kathy went to do her reading while I made the bed and changed to begin working on my next challenge. 
What our skies looked like all day.
When I installed the Fantastic Fan yesterday where the main room vent was there were no visible power lines visible. Under Rick’s suggestion this morning I pried my arm between the ceiling joists in an attempt to find a wire bundle that most manufacturers run over the ceiling. Striking out with that another attempt was made by removing the inside Air Conditioner Shroud. Again no overhead wires were found but now I could see how the A.C. had dirtied the ceiling so I cleaned that before reassembling the unit. The next game plan would involve running a double line all the way back to the fuse panel but I didn’t have the appropriate wire to do the job.

Since we’d be back late for lunch we had an early one before leaving the trailer. Kathy also encouraged me to call our friend Kathie to see how Ross was doing since it’s been a month since we last spoke. He was recovering from eyelid surgery from yesterday and it looks like he got in a fight but he can see much better. His kidneys are still causing problems for him as well and the excess fluid buildup affects his heart.

It was a half hour drive to Labelle and from past experience we went straight to Ace Hardware where I was able to find the perfect length of lamp wire to do the job. We also went back to the Ford dealership for a new oil-change sticker. They marked the one they installed for the next change calculated in miles not the Kilometers that our odometer figures in. We wouldn’t make it out of Florida before needing another oil-change.

Back at the trailer I started running the wire through the rear of the refrigerator cabinet when Elaine stopped over reminding us of the Pizza dinner we were all attending at the clubhouse tonight. That is when I remembered we hadn’t gotten to visit with our new found friends from Grand Bend, Ontario. Since they’ll be leaving tomorrow we hopped on the tandem and rode down to their site to visit. Unfortunately when we got there they were gone so we left them a note. When we got back to the trailer I cleaned up in preparation for our big night out.   

The deep dish pizza was made by Pizza Hut and was delicious as usual. When we had filled in our order forms we made the choice of the kind of pizza we wanted so nobody was disappointed. There was also Garlic bread, salad, iced tea, lemonade and cupcakes that was made on site by park volunteers. As soon as the meal was cleared away being that it was Tuesday evening it was Karaoke night and as before many of the park patrons tried their best to entertain their neighbors. 

The weather for the next few days should be slightly warmer than normal for this time of year so we’ll see what we can do. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
