We'll probably get back on the road Tuesday!
Pretty mellow birthday yesterday, but it was a good day and I enjoyed it. Never really left the motorhome, until late afternoon when we walked over for happy hour to Doug's RV which is parked about a half mile away. I got Sherman's front sway bar bushings changed, so that job is done. And I had an afternoon nap for an hour. And I got caught up on some computer stuff, but I'm still behind. Going to have to spend more time on it today.
Spoke to both our kids yesterday, so that was nice too!
Some of you were asking what my birthday dinner was, but we decided to put it off until today. We went over to Doug's for happy hour and snacks around 5:00pm, and were having such a good time that it was almost 9:00pm when we got back! Didn't feel like making a full supper at that hour so we just had a salad and that was enough. However...I think that Thai Chicken Curry is on the menu for this evening... :-)
Oh, and we had a pleasant birthday surprise yesterday afternoon. Our other neighbors Ron and Cindy had been into town to do some grocery shopping, and they stopped by with a cake!! And a jar of local honey. Thanks again guys!
We brought the cake over to Doug's.
Kevin, cutting his birthday cake.
It was rich! Holy chocolate, Batman!
Doug also had a birthday beer for me!
Yep, 53 years young!
Doug's an interesting guy. He's a retired electrical engineer and so he likes to tinker with electronics. He's made some interesting modifications to his RV, such as remote controlled tiltable solar panels. We enjoyed the tour and discussion of his rig.
Doug, and his homemade wind device.
The top of it has a small solar panel on it. The panel is attached to a small battery pack that powers some different colored LED lights. When it's dark, the lights light up, and even a minor amount of wind spins it around.
I always thought it would be very cool to have my own personal weather station. Some day when I have a few extra dollars lying around, I'm going to buy something like this, and mount it to the motorhome!
