Thurs. Nov. 17. A fun productive day

Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, 
 since August 2006

        This morning was cooler, overcast and windy, a big change from yesterday. But by the time we had coffees, computing, walkabout and a bit of shopping out of the way the wind died down, we had bright blue skies and it was an almost comfortable 70f (22c). Now we can just putter around outside.
We have a small lightweight folding metal table that was beginning to look pretty ratty, one that we use quite a bit so a quick fresh coat of paint makes it look like new.

        Then I had been looking at the sewer hose supports Rob had made and thought they would come in handy for us. I thought stealing them was not a good idea, so we wandered over to the maintenance area to see if they had any used pvc pipe laying around. And they had lots, so with enough free pipe for our project we proceeded to measure and cut all the pieces we needed.
team work
        Now with all the pieces of 1/2 and 3/4 inch pipe cut all we needed was the fittings and pvc cement. So a quick trip to the Ace hardware, while Suzie and Pat sanded the burrs off all the pieces we cut.  Now the final step and assemble our project.
fit and glue
all done
        Now we have the finished product that is lightweight, partially disassembles to lay flat for easy storage. Thanks Rob for your idea and help.

        Now all this "work", watching and helping the four of us got pretty thirsty so after putting away all the dangerous tools we relaxed in the shade and sun and proceeded with happy hour. 

        Ok the hour was up and time to fire up our Weber to roast a mini chicken (cornish game hen) potatoes with onions and peas for a tasty supper.  Just the perfect size for the two of us. It was much too cool to eat outside so tonight we had a nice quiet evening with our books and tv.
