Wed. Mar.30th 2011 Satellite Dish Resolved

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

       Overnight and this morning we had a heavy rain, and boy did it rain! The pounding on the roof was so loud I had to turn down my hearing aides. The tv lost its signal and we cold not see out the windows, just like going thru a car wash only we are in our house.
       We have not had a long heavy rain like that for a long time, I think probably last fall on Oct. 26th near Indianapolis Indiana and were were driving thru it! Eventually the rain stopped and I went to the store for a few items, checking out the flooded campsites in the resort.
pretty wet
       Now into town 5 minutes away, the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day! Love the old service station in the picture below Abita Garage is still in operation.

       Well got the shopping done and back home Suzie sorted the laundry and I sat by the laundry room outside enjoying my book while the machines did their magic. We are on the road in the morning to Roberstdale Alabama. Now the laundry done and we had some sunshine to dry out our awnings and mat  so I put these things away and puttered around tidying up a few things enjoying the warm afternoon.

      Our neighbour Tex and his wife were gone  most of the day but when they came home he returned our Church and Church book "rving in Mexico" and told us that his satellite tv is now working. We had it set up right, what he did was call customer service and they did a software update and bingo the tv is now working with all his channels. But in the process we did get to meet our neighbors, tackle a problem, enjoy a beverage or two and learn that if the satellite looks like its set up right it probably is, call customer service for technical support. Our dish sets up so easy now with the large dish and we only use it for morning news and after dark to fall asleep by.

       Today flew by and next thing we know its time for supper so tonight we decided on a very tasty Garlic Shrimp pasta, let's eat some of the tasty shrimp we have in our freezer. Now we can read a bit more, a bit of computing then the tv sleeping pill.
