Last November when we purchased our new to us Tiffin Allegro Bus, we were thrilled with it. We still are a year later.
It was not much later when we decided that the brass nobs on the cabinetry looked dated. We purchased just under one hundred dollars worth of knobs. Those nobs, as some of you will remember made a huge difference.
Last Thursday John set to work to finish the task of making all light fixtures and rings around the lights match the cabinet nobs. All rings and light fixtures had to come down. Some wires were harder to get at than others.
Do you think he will remember how to put all those parts back together?
Yep he did, but had two extra parts left over, but all the lights work.
And here they are:
Then we hung some artwork that we purchased at the Mission gift shop. I blogged about that trip earlier.
I retrieved a ceramic jack-o-lantern that my mom and dad made back in the late 1980's. Ole Jack rides on the dashboard. In September, he rides with his face facing inward. Then in October, we fill him with little lights and turn him outward.
We are missing our straw scarecrow. We cannot remember where we stored it. How, can we misplace something in such a small space?
Saturday, Jim and Sandie Dixon came to share our campground here at Stanton Crossing BLM on the Big Wood River
Jim and John put a new part on our awning. Good work guys. And thank you Jim.
While Jim was on the top of the motorhome, he checked out our search light. We now know how to open the light and what kind of sealed beam we need.
Jim also found a spot that needed caulking removed and re-caulked. We had a small water spot in one of our cabinets last week. Those two items John will take care of just as soon as we get the necessary equipment.
When we visited the Guajome Ranchhouse in Vista, California, I found this artwork for our kitchen. Finally, we hung them. More and more, this motorhome feels like home. These personal touches make such a difference.
Every stop is taking us a bit closer to Indianapolis and Doctor appointments, check up and best of all F.A.M.I.L.Y. I talked to grandchildren Lucy and Ross yesterday and told them we are on our way and will be there in a few weeks.
I am looking forward to going to gymnastic competitions where Lucy will compete. And then there is grandparents day the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
Daughter Karen is having a birthday October seventeenth. Granddaughter Megan is pregnant with our second great-granddaughter. Big sister, Harper had hardly any hair when we left and was not talking. Now she has long blond hair and is talking up a storm. Oh, my, I can hardly wait.
I have rambled a bit too much, but family is on my heart this evening.
John has made a campfire and I am going to go sit with my honey and dream of family.
God bless .....till next time.
