Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America 
in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we Today ?

        Wonderful Arizona blue skies, no clouds just sunshine and dust.  Quite a few rigs have left the area where we are today,  getting some of our open spaces back again. We only had to deal with a few days of crowds here. There is a lot less traffic on the roads, second last day of the RV show. 

        So Suzie and I headed out to check a few vendors to see what kind of deals may be had away from the big tent.
how about an Experimental airplane? not quite done yet
         A few stops along the way we ended back at the vendor by Love's Truck stop with lotsa RV stuff, I like lookin here.
what do you need? its probably here
lotsa plumbing stuff
         Ok now we found something we need. New hardware for our cabinets in the coach. We like the style, nice clean lines a simple upgrade to our house that really cleans things up.  Now I had checked to see how many in our coach and we have 38 of these handles. They can be pretty costly to buy but he has a good deal here only $1.00 each. sounds not too bad. But we can buy the whole box of 50 handles for $20.00. So 38 handles for $38.00 or do we want 50 handles for $20.00, hmm tough decision, so we have a few spares.

        The old handles have the brass worn off them and are tired looking.
        So back home I set to the chore of removing the old handles and cleaning up the all the doors with Old English oil and polish. Giving our house a refreshing facelift.
it does clean up the look. 
        I didn't get them all done today, a couple hours of hard labor is enough for one day, I have to remember I am retired. Maybe I'll do a few tomorrow and maybe the next day, maybe not. We do have other important things to do. Like relax in the sun with our books for a while, enjoy a cold beverage, chat for a bit, fire up the Weber to grill some tasty smoked pork chops, potatoes, broccoli with onions and a buttermilk biscuit (gotta eat).

        Then after supper our neighbors are having a campfire and we just had to join them. Can't let a nice wood fire burn within range of our house without enjoying the heat and conversation that goes along with it.
nice fire
        As soon as we sat in our chairs Lucy, (Jay's dog) jumped right up to on Suzie's knee so now she has another dog fix and they are both happy.

        Soon the cold desert air descends on us as the fire dies down and everybody heads back home to get all snugly and warm.
