Laci (our granddaughter) and John’s last name is Fox—isn’t this the cutest baby coming announcement!! Except there is one problem, it makes us GREAT Grandparents!!!!! Me, a Great grandmother????? To tell you the truth, I am thrilled--Katie and Laci have always accepted me as a part of their family and both call me Grandma—I can’t wait to hold this new little member of our family!!
We had a busy day—the cowboy decided the rig and the trailer AND the jeep needed a bath. This park doesn’t allow rig washing at the site but does have a rig washing spot all set up with concrete pad, hoses, brushes, etc. But, that meant we had to hook the trailer to the motorhome and move everything. We now have squeaky clean everything!
The cowboy gets the “husband of the year” award today!! We have a Splendide washer/dryer combo unit in our motorhome. At first I hated the thing but became a convert! While in Texas I used the washer/dryer a lot, almost exclusively instead of a laundromat. The dryer half of this unit does not dry like a home type dryer—it doesn’t get that hot but it does dry. Toward the end of our stay in Texas, the dryer just stopped drying—it barely reached a warm temp, much less a hot temperature. I told Michael and due to the fact the unit is very difficult to remove—he kind of blew me off saying it was doing what it was supposed to do.
Fast forward to this trip—yesterday I put “fix the dryer” on his honey-do list. Again, he blew me off. Well, this morning I put “fix the dryer” on his honey-do list AGAIN and I guess I was insistent enough—my cowboy fixed the dryer!!!!! Greg White was instrumental in figuring out the cause—Greg said the first thing to check was the vent—was it stopped up?? Wow!! Was it ever stopped up! After Michael pulled the vent hose off, we vacuumed and cleaned and the dryer works like a charm!! I even dried a load of towels!!
Rick left a comment on Sunday’s blog asking if our hydro-hot heating system took the place of a propane furnace—yep, it does—and as I was walking Emmi around the park early this morning, I came to the conclusion—our hydro-hot system is no noisier than a RV propane furnace. Our little blue flame propane heater uses no electricity and has no fan making it a great boondocking heat option—Michael also made the blue flame heater run yesterday but it still isn’t operating just right yet—and propane stoves are nothing to mess with if not operating properly!! The cowboy will get it figured out!
We enjoyed a quiet, delicious New Year’s Eve dinner at home—filets on the grill, oven fries and a Cesar salad—much better than a meal out if I do say so myself!!
Hope you all have a fun, enjoyable and safe New Year’s Eve!
