My dad grew up in southern Alabama. It was his first love and mainly where he took us on vacations. As a result, I grew up to love the state.
We thought John and I would retire to the Gulf Shores or Orange Beach area. I just new I did not want to put up with neither Indiana's cold, snow and ice during the winters nor their heat and humidity in the summer. I know, the Gulf breezes counteract the humidity when one is living of the Gulf.
Then....we purchased our first motorhome, a Winnebago Adventurer. Our home on wheels was first intended to provide a place for us to stay as we traveled to my fiber art shows. Who knew, at that time, that full time travel was in our future.
Today, Monday, we are in Alabama. I might mention that the temperatures here in northern Alabama are nicer than parts of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and southern California.
We have been visited by the service coordinator and been given two estimates of time to complete the work on our Tiffin Bus. We may be out of here in approximately two weeks if they can get their fabricator to make the wheel well right away. If not, then we will be here until after the first of 2014.
Wednesday brought good news. The wheel well will be ready by the end of the week. Repairs will start as soon as the insurance company give a thumbs up. Hopeful, we will be out of here in two weeks. I am ready to move on and we have not been here a week.
We have been into the Christmas decorating attitude. Hopefully, we will be finished today. Just trying to find a way to hang garland in the "living room." Last night, I tried to tuck it above the slide, almost finished and woosh, down it fell! It is hard when you don't want to deal nails, tacks etc in the wood.
The weather warmed to a pleasant, outdoor walking and sitting temperature. What was a ghost village now had clusters of people and talking and walking until today.
Today, it is still warm, but we have had a few showers. John has busied himself with more Christmas decorating.
Now he is watching the Army / Navy football game as I bake a pumpkin pie and roast the pumpkin seeds.
Since it is the weekend, the campground is quiet. Some of those awaiting service have left for the week end and a few had had their work completed, moving us up in the cue.
We are considering attending a living nativity in a small town in Mississippi tomorrow evening.
Monday, Tiffin will install our new television. It will be nice to have it off the dash board. In addition to the TV, they will install a sliding shelf, and construct a new cabinet where the bedroom TV was.
A huge thanks goes out to the shopper that ordered through our Amazon link here on the blog.
