Another Week Down Here in OKC

 Another week has passed here in OKC, but we haven't been sitting on our laurels. We've been staying pretty busy, which is good as it makes the time go by between Doc appts. Speaking of which, so far good news all around for Sheryl as all her tests and appts have been very positive. Just one more test and a follow up to discuss them, woo hoo!!! One thing they do have here on the base, like most bases is a really nice Thrift Store. We like to support it when possible as they do a lot of good for the base youth. The other day I stopped by and found a tool box with drawers I have always wanted one, but have been to cheap to buy new. The price was more than right so my new find came home with me, and I must say, it makes finding your tools so much easier.

 I finally started the extra large project I've been meaning to get to for a while, waxing the rig. First thing was removing the dried on road oil I picked up driving through a road construction site. A little grease and wax remover did the trick. Luckily it was only along the bottom on the passenger side. Then a coat of wax. Now this is taking some time as I'm only doing a little bit at a time, so it my take a couple of weeks, no sense killing myself right???

 Another project that came in the mail was new front windshield curtains. Our old ones (15 years old now) were beginning to look a little rough, ok, alot rough and were in desperate need of replacing. Sheryl found a site online, had them send us some samples and 10 days later we had a new set of custom made curtains. They look so much better and pretty much complete our total interior renovation.

 One project we were not expecting was our rear A/C unit to go on the fritz. It began making a pretty loud noise, so much that people were asking us if we were running our generator. Ok, time to get it looked at. Called on the local Mobile RV guy (with a good track record here in the park) and had him come out for a look. He found the problem right away, fan motor bearings were shot, went and picked up a new motor and had us up and running in no time. I try to be pretty handy fixing things around the RV as needed, but there are somethings I just don't have the knowledge or inclination to deal with. Feels good to have it fixed right and running again.

I'm always on the look out for odd and interesting RVs that come and go in the parks. A couple of days ago, this one pulled in, looks like an old 4x4 Military Ambulance. It has been fully renovated inside (sorry no pictures) along with a suspension lift and off road tires. If this doesn't get you away from it all, nothing will.
Well as I said earlier, all is going well, and if this last test turns out well, we will be able to start our journey south towards Florida for a warm winter in Key West. ahhhhhhh.
That's been our week so far, we did take in one of our granddaughters soccer games yesterday, so stay tuned for those shots in our next posting, so until then................................................
