Right after lunch Val and I went to Mobile Manor RV Park, which is only a couple of blocks from here, to check the items in their neighborhood garage sale. That park has been sold to an apartment builder and all the residents must be gone by the end of June.
Val bought some jewelry and I found some various kinds of household tape that I needed. The man was going to charge me a dollar for the four rolls but all I had was twenty-dollar bills and 85 cents in change. He decided to just let me have the tape.
Since I had lived in Mobile Manor for nearly seven years, I know many of the residents and am sorry that they are having to move. Many of them have already moved. The park manager, Edna Gunn, will be going to Colorado Springs to be near her family. Her son is here to help her move.
The couple (Randy and Linda) who had bought my HitchHiker are giving it to a local charity that provides temporary housing for homeless people while they are trying to get back on their feet. That is a wonderfully generous act and I am pleased to know that my former home will be put to such good use. They have been living in a house boat at Port Townsend, Washington for several months. Randy showed me a picture of their boat, which is very pretty. They will be taking their little Casita trailer back to Washington with them.
I spent the rest of the afternoon clearing out a lot of things that I plan to put on consignment next week. My storage area above the cab looks a bit neater now. I also selected a lot of jewelry that I haven’t worn in years. It feels good to accomplish something useful.
