Grand Kids go home.

I was backing up like Neil had suggested, and got off re reading the trip to Alabama to get the Motorhome repaired.  At the time, I was intent on getting things fixed that we had broken in our short time of ownership. 

But now several months later, I am impressed that we got as good of service as we did on such a short notice.  I basically called them up and told them I was coming, like it or not.  And they were soooo busy from all of us doing the same thing.  I know that we had a lot of stuff that was broken, and that much of it we broke ourselves, but they bent over backwards to fix all of it.  And didn't charge us a cent.  Seems like it was almost beyond their responsibility.  We are grateful!

So today was mostly spent with grand kids in the morning, until their mother arrived and picked them up.  She had come all the way from Florida at 4 AM, so I'm sure she was beat by the time she got here.  After four days of the little ones, it seems so quiet here that it almost seems broken.

Blogger came back on line about 2:30 in the afternoon, and that relieved me as I was concerned that only some of the country knew that there was an outage.  I posted the Sunday post with an E Mail, but tried others that were lost into cyberspace.  Oh well they were only tests anyway.

Later in the afternoon, I spent the time with the power washer trying to scrub the bugs off of the front of the motorscooter.  It takes a bunch of time to wash a bike, as there are so many nooks and crannies to polish dry.

I rode over to the dealer to see what it takes to get an appointment to get the initial oil change done, and was basically told to just show up early in the morning.  They are having concrete work done outside of the building in front of the garage doors, so perhaps tomorrow will not be the proper morning to arrive.

Also they are forecasting rain for the morning, so maybe the concrete and the bike ride for the oil change will both wait until another time.

Dang its quiet in here!!!!

  1. It seems a few bloggers had trouble with Blogger yesterday. It didn't seem to affect me here so it must have been something local. Glad to see it seems to be o.k. now. Enjoy the quiet at home while you can!!
