Seffner, Florida (high 82, low 72)
It was a pretty day yesterday, warm but not too hot. What did we do? Kayak?, hike?, Busch Gardens? beach? No…we went to my least favorite place.
The mall! There doesn’t appear be anything wrong with the economy here in Tampa. The mall was jam packed with people of all ages. There were very few parking spaces and the stores were almost as crowded as Christmas. Unbelievable! Why are all these people in the mall when it was such a pretty day outside?
We don’t go to malls often, but Al needed a good pair of comfortable shoes, so off we went to the mall…..on a Saturday. What were we thinking?
His feet have been hurting him a lot over the past few years and we decided to break down and see if expensive/good quality shoes would help. He got a pair from The Walking Store. They have a good arch support in them and are supposed to be made well. We’ll see. They were $109….which is the most either of us have ever paid for shoes. I looked for some shoes, but never could find any that I liked well enough to justify the cost.
One reason besides the free camping and rally, that we came back to Lazy Days, was to have a dashboard cover made for the motorhome. We needed something to protect it from sun damage as well as kitty claws.
We had it made at Wade Rv, here on the Lazy Days property. It ended up costing $375, which is more than we wanted to spend, but we couldn’t find anyone else that made a nice cover. They do a lot of things from re-upholstering furniture, fixing tears in vinyl/leather, front window screens, mirror and wiper covers, roller shades. We are happy with the work they did on the dash cover, so we may use them again in the future.
Baxter liked it too.
They had a pattern for this particular motorhome, but he had to alter the pattern a little. That is why they won’t make one up and mail it to you. They want to custom fit it to your motorhome.
We decided to take off the ugly fans on the dash and not put them back. We rarely use them and they are unattractive….plus they got in the way for kitty naptime!
We had a Mockingbird nest next to our campsite and they have been entertaining the kitties. Here is the baby.
We extended our time at Lazy Days three extra days. We got a 25% discount so we won’t have to leave until Tuesday. Then I guess we’re off to Lutz (north of Tampa) for the month of May. : (
We sure miss the Keys!
