October 20-21, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas October 20 – It was another quiet day which I spent reading and trying to fend off the cold I’ve caught. October 21 – Carl didn’t make it out to fix the valve today, and I don’t have my bill so I will stop by his shop in the morning before I go. Since I have a cold, I was glad to just stay inside and stay warm. jnd

October 13-19, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas October 13 – It was cold today so I stayed inside and tried to stay warm. October 14 – Today was the day for the doctors. I had my blood test, doctor, wellness check appointment, dentist and eye doctor appointments today. That was it for the day. October 15 – I took the car in for the recall work. They called me to tell me that they would have to rebuild the transmission and would need the car through tomorrow. That won’t work because I have a haircut tomorrow, and I’ve already changed the appointment...

October 6-12, 2019 – Stillwater, Oklahoma, Emporia, Kansas and Longwood, Missouri October 6 – Lunch was at Patsy’s today. There was no needlework that got done. Someone had given the thrift store where Patsy volunteers 2 boxes of needlework patterns and pattern books. Mary, Debbie, Connie, Guyla and Patsy went through them and selected when they wanted. That took a couple of hours. After that it was time for Debbie to head back to Texas. Mary isn’t going until Tuesday so she and Connie will have time for more shopping and visiting. Patsy...

Jun 23, 2019 - June 23, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas to Stillwater, Oklahoma

June 23, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas to Stillwater, Oklahoma It rained hard all night and was still raining when I got up this morning. Despite the weather forecast, it cleared off about 10 this morning both here and in Stillwater. I decided to go ahead and come back to Stillwater even though it meant getting a late start. Even at that I was back here in Stillwater by 3:30. It stayed cool today so it wasn’t bad getting the car unhooked, the coach backed into my spot and getting hooked up. After supper, I cleaned out my email and spent the rest...

Jun 22, 2019 - June 22, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas

June 22, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas I really didn’t do anything today. I spent the day doing crosswords, watching TV and playing on the computer. It was hot outside so I opted for those things which I could do inside. I think I’ll stay here tomorrow rather than going to Stillwater. The forecast is for 80%-90% of severe thunderstorms both for here and Stillwater. Monday is supposed to be nice. I see no reason to drive in bad weather if I don’t have to do so. jnd

Jun 21, 2019 - June 21, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas

June 21, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas I had the car and the coach to Williams when they opened at 7:30. They changed the oil on the car and put on new windshield wipers. The coach had 2 leaks in the cooling system. They fixed those and adjusted the windshield wipers. So, all is well on that front. While I was waiting for them to finish up on the coach and car, a terrific rain storm came up. The wind was blowing the rain sideways. I was glad that Carl wasn’t trying to put the window in while that was going on. After Williams finished, I took the...

Jun 20, 2019 - June 20, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas

June 20, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas The window came in today. However, Carl won’t be able to put it in until tomorrow. That’s okay though since it means I’ll only have to move the coach once. I’ve hooked the car up so that in the morning, I will only have to unplug from electric and water. When Williams finishes with the coach, I’ll run the coach over to Carl and walk back to Williams where they will be changing the oil in the car. I managed to get an appointment this morning to get my hair cut. I really needed a haircut so I was glad that Dave...

June 19, 2019 – Stillwater, Oklahoma to Emporia, Kansas If we had thunderstorms last night, I didn’t know about it. Patsy said that the thunder woke her up, but I didn’t hear it. She said that it rained but not hard. I visited with Patsy for a while before heading out to Wichita. I stopped at Von Maur to return some things I had ordered from the website. They didn’t fit. I stopped at Krispy Kreme to buy donuts for Carl and his guys before heading here. Carl had retrieved the coach from the guy who fixed it and put it in my spot here at the...

Jun 16, 2019 - June 16, 2019 – Stillwater, Oklahoma to Emporia, Kansas

June 16, 2019 – Stillwater, Oklahoma to Emporia, Kansas I had barely gotten to sleep last night when the weather radio went off. We were under a severe thunderstorm watch until 4 this morning. Then, there was a tornado warning for communities about 50 miles south of us. I got up and turned on my computer and watched the weatherman from the OKC station which does a really good job of covering severe weather. Finally about 12:30 a.m., the bulk of the storms had moved past us so I went to bed and to sleep again. When I woke up this morning, it...

Apr 13, 2019 - April 13, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas

April 13, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas This seems to be electrical problems week. First, the turn signal/stop lights on the car. Then, it was the refrigerator. Now, the heating is going crazy. The front heat pump mostly seems to be working except that sometimes the furnace comes on instead of the heat pump. Last night when I went to bed the front furnace was working, but now it is not. I run the fan on the back AC during the night to keep down the road noise. It went off and wouldn’t come back on. However, the AC is working and so is the fan when...

April 12, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas My refrigerator stopped working last night so I was up, out and waiting for Carl when he opened this morning. Carl was out today dealing with some family medical problems, but Troy said that he would come out and look at it. I came back to the coach until it was time to leave to go to Council Grove to meet Bev and Sharon for lunch. Troy got here just as I was leaving. I had a good time visiting with Bev and Sharon. We got caught up on each other’s doings. We were at the restaurant when they opened, and we...

Apr 11, 2019 - April 11, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas

April 11, 2019 – Emporia, Kansas I took the coach to Williams this morning so that they could put on the new windshield wipers. They didn’t have them in stock on Tuesday and so had to order them. They came in yesterday afternoon, and they got them put on this morning. After that I stopped by Carl’s to pay my bill and have them connect my water hose to the coach. I really don’t know what I was doing wrong because Troy did it as easy as pie. I came back to the park and decided that maybe I had better test the new electric cord which connects...
