Father's Day 2014

Yes...I Qualify...my son was born on this day exactly 45 years ago in Tallahassee...He's on a mission in Guatemala today with his four oldest children. The last time I saw him on Thursday  he was opening birthday presents early and his wife was trying to figure out how to pack 20 soccer balls into their luggage....



After Budapest, I replaced the tires and batteries on the RV but hooked up the batteries with the wrong polarity. That blew out the refrigerator, the electric RV steps and motherboard, the electric mirrors, the three video cameras and the gauges on the holding tanks. Also, now the slide rooms only work if we run the generator or connect to shore power...



You'd think that the year I spent in electronics school back in '64 might have helped...I was the top of the class....old and stupid? ...No...I've done stupid things like that all my life...



We're using the refrigerator like an ice box by adding 10 pounds of ice daily. My parent's had an ice box...the ice man brought 25 pounds every couple of days...he would knock on the door and I would yell, "Mom! The ice man cometh!".


Despite all that we decided to cruise on up to North Carolina and back to see the grandchildren. We swim, play Uno and practice tennis with them for a week.


Now we're back in Sarasota hoping to get our problems fixed...




Mrs. Phred put new cushions, carpets and blinds in the RV earlier this year. With the tires, batteries and repairs, maintenance costs are starting to get serious this year.... Maybe it's time for a house?
