Mar 17, 2013 - Celebration #1

The first celebration of the big “70” was with Jim and his family. We also celebrated Jim’s 41st birthday which was March 14. We gathered at our house then went to our favorite Chinese restaurant, Wong’s 8th Wonder Kitchen at 54 S Hwy 17-92 in DeBary. A great meal was had by all.

Feb 19, 2013 - The House

Since this is my first post, I thought I'd just post a photo of the house in DeBary. It's a double wide manufactured home and is in very nice condition. I'll be adding posts in the future, so I hope you'll keep checking back now and then.

Jun 21, 2012 - The cousins arrive from California

Richard picked up Andy, Laura, Lucas and Avery at OIA while I went to Angelina's for take-out pizza. Meanwhile Jim, Julie, Jack, Alex and Bryn came up from Casselberry and the fun began. All the cousins got on so well. We decided to invite them to spend the night at our house. Bryn and Avery slept on the couch in the den and apparently talked into the night. How can a four-year-old and three-year-old have so much to say. And Jack, Alex and Lucas slept on the couches in the living room. Andy got up at 11:30 to tell them to go to sleep....

Jan 23, 2012 - I'm Ready and One Last Visit With Laura And Lindsey

DeBary, FL. 52 deg. light fog, no wind. Forecast = Partly sunny. Patchy fog early in the morning. Highs around 80. South winds 5 to 10 mph. The only thing that's left for Jim to do outside this morning is to put the water hose away, unhook me from the cable TV and roll up the electric cord. Almost everything inside of me has either been put away or secured, and it' shouldn't take more than about 1/2 hour to take care of the rest. I think I'm ready!!!!! For dinner last night, Jim and Linda took CLT and headed over to Arby's. On the way,...

Jan 22, 2012 - Just About Ready

DeBary, FL. 65 deg. 45 deg. clear, no wind. Forecast = Partly sunny. Patchy fog in the morning. Highs in the upper 70s. East winds 5 to 10 mph. Not a whole lot to blog about this morning. Jim and Linda have me just about ready to travel, but other than getting me ready, not much else has happened. Linda did another load of laundry, Jim put his bicycle in the back of CLT, and they both went to Walgreen's to pick up a few items and then to the grocery store to stock up for the next week or so. Oh, I've been able to get another photo loaded...

Jan 21, 2012 - Air Filter, Getting Ready and Dinner

DeBary, FL. 53 deg. clear, no wind. Forecasts = Partly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s. South winds 10 to 15 mph. Once Jim went outside yesterday morning, he got out a few tools and removed my old engine air filter and installed this new one. It's very large and the filter element is permanently fastened inside of the canister. And as you may imagine, it's also quite expensive. It's really not too hard to install though, and in about an hour and a half, Jim was finished and putting away his tools. After he finished with the filter, he drug...

Jan 20, 2012 - A Little Surprise and My New Filter Is Here

DeBary, FL. 41 deg. clear, no wind. Forecast = Sunny. Highs in the mid 70s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph. After spending some time working on the computer, he got on the phone and called the Deland Truck Center to find out if that new engine air filter for me had come in. Well, Dennis, the parts manager said that it had come in and that Jim could come and pick it up anytime. So, after lunch, Jim took CLT and headed over there. But, on the way, he stopped by an Office Max store to check on something he had been researching for quite awhile...

Jan 19, 2012 - A Little Work, A Little Rain and A Little Visit

DeBary, FL. 48 deg. clear, light NW breeze. Forecast = Partly sunny in the morning then becoming mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 60s. North winds 5 to 10 mph becoming northeast in the afternoon. It was sunny most of the morning here in DeBary yesterday, but in the afternoon, it started clouding up and then we had some rain later in the day. Jim spent some of the day straightening up CLT's pick-up truck bed. After almost 2 months, everything in there had gotten scrambled around. That was OK, but now, there has to be room to put Jim's...

Jan 18, 2012 - Tires, They Won't Rent Me A Site but Problem Solved

DeBary, FL. 53 deg. clear, no wind. Forecast = Partly cloudy in the morning...then considerable cloudiness with a chance of afternoon showers. Highs in the mid 70s. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30 percent. Jim's big project yesterday was to check tires. The first thing to do, of course, was to get out the compressor and hose. After getting it ready he started on my tires, first on my left and then my right. I'm pleased to say that out of all of my tires, (8 of them), and after more than 2 months, only one was about 5 PSI...

Jan 17, 2012 - Lots Of Ambition

DeBary, FL. 47 deg. scattered clouds, no wind. Forecast = Partly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s. South winds 5 to 10 mph. I don't know what got into Jim yesterday, but he sure had a lot of ambition. In the morning, he went out and checked all my batteries. I have two 12 volt starting batteries and six 6 volt deep cycle coach batteries, and he checked the electrolyte level and filled all of them with distilled water. Then he got out the garden hose and some spray stuff and cleaned them. Since he had all of the battery stuff out, he then did...

DeBary, FL. 32 deg. clear, no wind. Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 60s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph becoming north 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon. About 11:00 yesterday morning, Laura called and asked if Linda and Jim would like to go out for lunch. Well, like any good RVer would do when there's family and a meal involved, they said "Of Course"! ; ) So, because Laura had some shopping to do, it was decided that they would meet Laura and Lindsey over at Gram's Kitchen about 1:30. Needless to say, they had a great meal and a great...

Jan 14, 2012 - Brrrrrrr!!!!!

DeBary, FL. 36 deg. clear, no wind. Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs around 60. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Brrrrrrr!!!!! Yep, it's cold again down here in FL. : ( I guess I can't complain though, they had around 6 inches of snow in the Chicago Area and right now, it's only 6 degrees in Rantoul, IL. That's only about 15 miles from where I spent last winter!!! Another real slow day here yesterday. Jim and Linda cleaned the inside of me but neither of them seemed to have much ambition, so they just watched TV and read the rest of the time....
