Friday, Saturday, Sunday
26th Friday we both had Coffee, I with the guys at7:30 and Ella with the gals at 9:30.
Shortly after sun up I was going to go to the roof and install the third vent cover. However, as I opened the vent in preparation, it rained in my face. I hadn’t realized that it was raining before. What a surprise. It rained off and on (sometimes quite hard) most of the day. So no working on the roof.
Since we were stuck inside on a cool and rainy day, I decided to bake some bread for the potluck. We have potlucks twice a month in the rec hall. I made a large loaf of potato bread which I baked in a skillet in the oven. It turned out so well that we ate half of if before the potluck. So, I baked another loaf and made some candied oranges slices also. Ella sliced a bunch of our tomatoes to take to the pot luck also.
27th Saturday was still cool but not raining so I was able to install the third and last roof vent cover. This last cover was installed on a vent that had a fan in it. Because of the fan, the screws that came with the kit would not work. So I went to the closest hardware store. I had driven past “Buchanan General Store” many times and not really even noticed it. Once inside, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was just what I was looking for, a real neighborhood hardware store that had bin after bin of hardware. I was able to buy the eight screws that I needed without having to buy a bulk package. I’ll be back to this store, I’m sure.
On my way out of Buchanan General Store’s drive, I saw the sign for another RV park. Being in no particular hurry to climb back up on the roof, I decided to take a little drive and check out the park. Excuse me, this was not a park, it was a resort. I guess the fact that it had a swimming pool and hot tub made it a resort. It was very nice and neat. The prices were only slightly more than what we are paying at Shady Oaks. I was surprised that there were so few people staying there. Makes me wonder why people aren’t staying there. Oh well, back to work on the roof. It had been a week since I had dumped the holding tanks, so I did that also.
28th Sunday we returned to Cross and
for the service. There was a baptism at
the end of the service so we got to see that horse tank in use. After the service we drove into Burnet (not
pronounced bur-net, but pronounced burn-et or burn-it) and had a buffet lunch at the
Highlander Restaurant. The rest of the day
was spent relaxing, reading, taking a little walk, watching television and yes
taking a nap. Spurs
