Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Let There Be Light

There are no street lights in this resort so a some people make their own post lights. We decided to give it a try and make our own to. We found a light that we liked in Lowes and it was made in the USA.
 Next we collected what we need to construct the lamp post from PVC piping and connectors.
 Then we painted the post and added the light.
Once in place, we added our sign on one of the arms, and will hang a flag of some type on the other arm. We like the way it came out! In case your wondering, the base of the post is a toilet flange which allows you to secure the post to the ground with long spikes.

Nice Weather

The Blogger is having problems with picture attachments so I have been holding off on my postings. The problems still exist but I was able to get around it.  

Refrigerator update......our new cooling coil came in last week but was damaged when the box was run over by the fork truck that was unloading it. They insured me that the unit wasn't damaged but I refused to accept it so we had to wait for another one to be delivered.

Monday of this week they finally came and replaced the cooling coil. Three men worked on it for about two hours. Everything seems to be fixed and we are holding our breath with the hopes that nothing else goes wrong. This fix cut into our expenses but at least we are staying here for free while I work camp.
Below is the back of the fridge with the cooling coil removed.

This is the new coil...the old one is in the background.

As for the weather here, it's has been in the low 80's for the past week but is suppose to cool to the low 70's for the next week.......bummer!

Oh Man!!!

I received a call yesterday that the new cooling coil for our fridge came in....BUT, the box was damaged when a fork truck ran over it. So we now have to wait for another new one to be delivered.

Anyways, the kids left for home today after enjoying their vacation. They seemed to have a good time because they were off to somewhere everyday. They went to Disney, Universal, and a lot of other places.
They never really said much when they came in at the end of the day, guess they were too tired to speak.

So things are somewhat back to normal here. Now I can have my coffee with a light on in the morning before I leave for work.

Back To Work

Sorry about the delay but the grand kids used up all the air time on my MiFi and I had to wait for the new month.

Anyways....I went back to work on Monday 7:30 till 11:30 AM. Tough getting out of bed after being use to lounging till 9:00 AM. It got easier as the week progressed.

Got bad news on our Norcold fridge, the cooling coil has to be replaced due to plugging. They normally last a lot longer but ours only made it three years. The worse part is I could buy three residential refrigerators for what it is costing me to have this one repaired. A lot of people are getting residential refrigerators in there RV's. But because you have to run it on 110 volts all the time it doesn't fit our lifestyle of camping.
We like being able to dry camp and choose not to run our generator, sooooooo I have to bite the bullet.

The weather has been nice and warm with a couple of days with light showers. The kids have been to Disney twice, the Brevard Zoo, plus numerous other points of interest.
