But I’ll admit that I check my stats and love to see that people from other countries read here, this old woman appreciates this and it makes writing a lot of fun and encourages me to write often which is good for my brain stimulation!
It just takes hearing from one person to make it worth my time to share my nonsense, my journey, my trials and tribulations, my joy.
That happened today, twice and on the telephone! Yes I do speak on the phone and I have answered voice mails. I got caught up with a brother and an old friend that I’d worked with at the hospital in Panama., she’s 86 and not happy with the loss of control over her life style and finds pleasure reading about Charley and life here in Caballo. She walked several miles every day until she broke a hip and surprised everyone with her rapid recovery. I plan to stop to see her in Austin on my way to Plano TX before I fly to VA for Thanksgiving.
Enough about me, today was spa day for GG. Ordinarily it is not considered right to wash your RV in the park, at least I think that’s true., though I’ve never been told this,People take their RV elsewhere to wash it. Exceptions have been made.
Today I did a quick rinse on the west side of GG with a solution reported to do it all, wash rinse and shine and it looks ok.GG has really nice skin and never looks dirty so that was fine for her business side (the side with all the workings gas/water/poop tubes and generator) , but on her fun side I went with something better. I learned of this product from my neighbors who live in a huge beautiful RV that has a mirror finish. I don’t expect that for GG, different style different finish. Anyway that is what I’m using to beautify GG. This is the side with the entry, the side I’ve-been painting on. Tomorrow I’ll finish reworking some of the paint and cleaning the upper half………y.es I should have started from the top but I was excited to see how this stuff worked and cleaned parts I could reach.I’ll have to get a new photo of GG for my blog page when she’s all beautiful, she’ll be even better looking than when she was new. (This isn’t a very good photo, I’ll try again later.)
I know, its great to get excited about small things, smiling is good for your face, I must smile a lot because I’ve gathered an incredible collection of smile lines
I probably don’t need to bring my potted plants in yet, we haven’t had a freeze, but I brought in a few, six plants I’d like to winter either in here or in the studio., but I’m pushing it, I have about 6 more that will need protection, the ones I saved from Walmart‘s greed.It really burns me that they keep trying to sell plants that are almost dead without much discount, they should give the away rather than trash the dying unsold dears. My rant for today. It looks like a florist shop in here now.
We haven’t had a freeze yet but it sure is chilly in the morning, in the 50s. Poor Charley was cold last night, I heard him scratching around on my new fabrics at 3 am so jumped down to see que pasa and he was all scrunched together trying to get his blanket over him. I helped him and turned on the space heater and all was well until time to get up but neither of us wanted to get moving it was so comfy in bed. Wintering in GG is not my favorite time of year even in Caballo.
