Making the Best of it….
Well it’s day 3 at Demontrond RV. The approval, from Thor, came through yesterday afternoon and our service tech was supposed to start work on our rig mid afternoon. When there hadn’t been any sign of him by 4:00 I went back in and asked Jeannie what was up. She had been under the impression that he was working on our rig. She went to find Mike, our tech, and Mike told her that he was going to “knock all of the work out” today. I stressed to Jeannie that we still have to go to the Ford dealership to get the safety recall dealt with and we need to be in Bandera on Thursday to start work. She said she understood.
Come 5:00, as supper time was approaching, Linda decided to do some grilling. What better place to do some tailgating than in a big ole parking lot full of RV’s. It sure got the attention of all the workers as the smell of the marinated veggies was wafting through the air. I put Adele’s CD on and cranked up the outside speakers. Linda went over and invited the other couple, who is staying on site, to join us for supper. Marg and Burt are traveling health professionals. He is a home based physical therapist and she is a home hospice nurse. They brought their chairs and plates over and we had a nice meal of veggie burgers, grilled veggies, cottage cheese and cut up pineapple. Their two schnauzers also came along to visit. They have a house in the state of Washington but go out in their motor home, to work, 6 – 9 months out of the year. We had a nice visit with them and stayed outside until it got dark. It was a great way to pass the time while waiting for our rig.
It’s now a little after 8:00 a.m. and I know Mike comes in at 8. Guess it’s time to go see what time he’s going to get hoppin’. Hope all of you have an awesome Leap Year day. Make the best of it !
