Gloomy Day Accomplishments

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

Just before 7:00 this morning my back told me it was time to get out of bed. The first thing I did was to open the blinds and shades in the kitchen/dining area and then the rear bedroom. The overcast weather did nothing to increase the internal lighting what so ever. There was a slight blanket of fog that was hovering just above the ground but the sky would remain cloud covered for the rest of the day.

I had the majority of my reading complete when Kathy came out to join me just before 8:00. It felt strange not having known that she was moving about upstairs as our newly installed stabilizers were definitely doing what they were advertised to do stopping the movement in the trailer.

The local weather channel only confirmed what was visible by the naked eye that it would remain a dull uninviting day with a cool enough breeze that you would see those that did venture out wearing jackets and sweaters. 
The sky was much darker than this picture showed.
Once breakfast was completed we instinctively returned to the computers. With my reading complete I verified the location of our FedEx package. After I left them a comment yesterday that their tracking Sucked they sent an apology an updated status and an approximate time of delivery. In the meantime we received a call from Elaine and Rick asking if we wanted to go with them to Camping World and Costco in Fort Myers. Because we were waiting for our delivery we said thanks but maybe another time.

They left while we were having our lunch which is understandable. When I returned to the computer to check for an upgrade to the delivery of the package it said delivered. We’d had our door open and no attempt to deliver anything to us here had taken place so there was only one place it could be. Kathy held down the fort while I took the truck up to the office. Sure enough there was a huge box sitting near the reception desk with our name on it. The receptionist was busy on the phone and with someone else at the desk so with someone else to hold the door I simply dragged the box out to the truck.

Kathy’s face was all aglow when she saw me arrive with the box on the rear of the truck. She went to get her shoes on and came out to help me unpack our delivery. There was a box inside of a box and then all the disassembled parts were tied together with plastic wire ties. With everything cut loose there was still cardboard that was wrapped and taped around every painted surface so it would arrived unscratched. After mounting the front wheel, pedals, handle bars and seats we were now seeing what we ordered. This is a Green Zone Folding Tandem Bicycle but there is a problem. Because Kathy’s legs tend to be long so after everything had been adjusted as much as possible her knees were hitting the rear handle bar. To rectify this problem we’ll just replace the handlebars with some that are taller.

I made my first attempt at grilling bacon wrapped hotdogs with cheese on the Weber for supper. I was worried about melting the cheese too much so the bacon wasn’t as crispy as we would have liked it. They still tasted great but next time I’ll try a higher heat to make the bacon crispier.

Kathy did the supper dishes while I set up our meds for the next few weeks. Then before 7:00 we went over to the clubhouse for another night of Bingo but we weren’t as luck as we were last week. Two weeks of entertainment for the both of us for a total of $4.00 is actually not too bad at all.

Tomorrow we’ll be heading back to Fort Myers to try and get things straightened around here. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Resume Blunders

One applicant said: "It seems that my credentials would be a good fit for what you are looking to accomplish, however, I don't wish to make a career of it."

  1. When sitting on the seat, your leg should be almost fully extended when the pedal is at it's lowest point. Unless your wife is about 4 ft tall :) , that seat needs to be raised. Not having this set correctly can lead to knee injury. Have fun !

  2. That is one cool looking bike. That will get you around the RV park....and other places.

  3. Great bike - how adventuresome - you must get someone to take a pic of you both so we can see it in action....I reckon it will be fun.....happy peddling

  4. You'll have to get a picture of you both riding it. Looks like fun.

  5. So good to read that the stabilizers are doing their job. We are going to look at them when we get to the Q.
