Boy, is this baby kitten wearing me out! We haven’t had a kitten for 14 years. I had forgotten how energetic they are, how much trouble they can get into, how fragile they are, and how fast you can fall in love with them.
Little “no name” is so small, but he’s starting to climb like he’s a big boy. I have to constantly worry that he isn’t up somewhere high, where he can fall off and get hurt. He gets into everything.
I have soup cans under my rocker/recliner to keep it from rocking and injuring him. He likes to get under the chair, and any movement from us would squash him. We have been avoiding that chair as much as possible for fear of hurting him.
We had a pretty quiet week-end. On Saturday, we did a little laptop shopping. Best Buy will look at my laptop for $180….just to look at it! If any parts are needed, they would be extra.
So far my laptop monitor is still working, but I know it’s just a matter of time.
Sunday was football day for Al. He was happy that the Tampa Bay Bucs won. I’m not a football fan so I stayed out of his way and watched movies in the bedroom.
Monday night before bed we took a walk and then decided to go sit in the hot tub for a while. It sure felt nice! We were going to do it again last night, but there was some pretty ugly lightning in the sky. Tampa is the lightning capitol of the world!
We leave here on Wednesday for Lazy Days, but haven’t decided yet on where our next stop is. I’m still hesitant on making firm decisions because they always get messed up. Al is still voting to go back to Vero Beach. I think we have ruled the Florida Keys out for now. The nice thing about being full-timers is that we can go where the weather is the best!
The picture below is another one of the little trouble maker. I can’t leave a cord around for fear of him wrapping it around his neck, or chewing on it. I think his name might be “Fuzz Butt.” It was one of the first things we started calling him and it seems to be sticking. Fuzzy for short. It fits, doesn’t it?
We’ve been going through all of our owners manuals on the motorhome (again), trying to sort through all the things that need regular maintenance. Boy, is there a lot on a diesel pusher! We’re just learning about air brakes, air bags, ride height, slack adjusters, air canister, s-cams…..whew!
What do you all do, or have done regularly? Of course we know about tire pressure, oil and air filters, but what about all the other stuff? Have any of you replaced your original shocks? Just how many are there? Have you checked and adjusted your ride height?
We just learned something on our refrigerator. First, thing is we’re not big fans of Norcold. Our Dometic in the other motorhome ran just fine. Of course it was a much smaller unit, so I guess there was less to cool.
Lazy Days put in a brand new Norcold in our motor home and it’s been running fine….until we got back to Tampa. We defrosted it thinking that was causing the problem. We’ve kept our thermometer in the unit and have had temps in the 40’s. Before we had low 30’s. After we defrosted it, it seemed to take forever to cool back down, but we’re still in the low 40’s. We decided to put it on LP and see if that helped, but it wouldn’t light on LP. I finally read the Monaco manual (the Norcold manual didn’t tell me this). It said if it didn’t light on LP, to turn the unit off and then on and try again. I did that and the first time it light right up. Before we just kept hitting the LP mode. I don’t know if turning off the power resets something, but it appears to be running on LP now. We’ll see if it cools any better. Margie calls them , Notcolds! I think she might be right! Of course we are parked right out in the sun and it’s been in the 90’s every day. The refrigerator side gets full afternoon sun.
