2 Weeks Until Departure

Only 2 more weeks and we will be leaving our favorite Summer spot. That time will fly by and be here before we know it. We still have a lot of things to get done and on the 5th of Oct we will do our final “winterization” of the cabin and head to Lincoln, Nebraska. We set up the plumbing with special air chuck fittings so it will be a simple job to blow out all the water lines. Rollie was here last year to help me blow it out.  I hope I can remember how to do it.  The memory is really suffering lately.......I don’t know what happened to it??
Several people asked if you had to crawl up on the roof of the RV each time to hook and unhook the "Awning Clamp" that I installed. Good question and I should have explained that. If you click on the picture and enlarge it, you will see a place to hook your awning rod and fasten and unfasten the clamp. A small price to pay for the peace of mind of not having to worry about the awning “unfurling” and ripping off. Hope it works!!
I had a new passenger on my 4 wheeler. I took Ms. Megabyte2 for a ride. At first she said, "No way Pops!!  I’m not getting on that thing!"  But with a little time and assurance that she would be OK and I would protect her, she agreed to take a ride. After a slow trip around the place, she got a little more comfortable, but she still wasn’t too sure about the idea.
I was surprised she stood for it at all. She rode all the way down to the mail box and back with me but when we got back she was saying…….”I don’t know Pops, it's a little scary. I think I better get off now”.  I
 really think she kinda liked it…Smile

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

God Bless you all.

nice idea on the awning clip!..and as for Ms. Megabyte going for a ride on the ATV..good for her!!!

She did a whole lot better than our mutzo's would do. They would definitely not be impressed. I'm hoping we beat you out onto the road but the way things have been going here in Billings I'm not sure we'll make it.

Ms Mega is a real trooper. Good thing you didn't drop her at the mailbox, though! Post Office won't ship a cat.

Mike, you have been a cat wrangler long enough that you should know that even if she did like it... she would never let you know it.

Phosphatidyl serine will help the memory, significantly. Though I don't usually care for GNC products, they and others do carry it. It does not take a lot but even taking it for just a couple of days and I was amazed. I only take it when am really aware that I have trouble like having difficulty trying to copy a phone number from one piece of paper to another. This is when I know for sure that I need it.

Nice looking threesome you got going on there..... You, Ms Megabyte2 and the yellow 4 wheeler....groovy:))

Paul Weaver said...

No way our little cat, Bella, would get any where near that thing!

Sherry and Charley Dilworth said...

I am amazed that you got Ms Megabyte2 to stick around for the ride!! I know our fur babies would love it though. Hope your preparations for your trip go well.

Safe travels!!

I got the opportunity to catch up on this and the prior two blogs. I found myself laughing quite hardily at Megabyte's ride, and I just love the pictures of the kitchen in the prior blog. Enjoy your last little time there. I know we still miss being there!
