One thing we noticed is that the recliners we bought last year are not very practical. They need to be pulled out sooo far into the room if you want to recline on them. They waste about 12-14 inches behind each chair. And if you don't pull them out far enough, they catch on the edge of the window frame when putting them back upright. Time to make a change....
Our son Dan and Heather will come and take these recliners off our hands, and they match their couch already in their house. Although they were good recliners for the year we had them in our motorhome, and we bought them at a good price, but we would like the extra space in front of the chairs instead.
Another little helpful thing I learned this week --- I had seen another RVer with these thin velour hangers at the laundry area in Holtwood campground last weekend. They are thinner in profile than regular plastic hangers.
BEFORE HANGERS AFTER
one white plastic hanger on the right
is as thick as 2 or 3 of the black velour ones
Big storms blew through on Saturday afternoon and evening. We mostly stayed inside and hunkered down.
Sunday morning, we slept in a bit --- trying out this full timing retirement attitude. LOL Then Steveio got up on the roof and removed the shrouds on our AC units to clean the inside coils. He did a good job on the cleaning by blowing out with his compressed air tool. He has his big tank air compressor on board to run all of his air tools. A happy man has his happy tools along.
In the afternoon, our friends Sharon and Fred came for a visit. They brought along their yellow lab, Brandie, who HAD to hop in the water right away. Of course. Would you expect less of a lab?
Steve tossed some steaks on the grill, and Sharon brought plenty of treats to go with the meal. We sat and gabbed and marveled at the great day. Temps in the 70's, low humidity, nice breeze off the bay. Wow... what a choice for a picnic with good friends.
Sharon made a very good dessert with strawberries, kiwi, angelfood pieces and a whipped base of sugarfree vanilla pudding mix and whipped cream. Yummmmm
The guys wandered on down by the water, and checked out the lift device for the pontoon boat. Steve is going to help Ernie (the cottage owner) to add a different unit to lower and raise the boat easier. The lowering water levels of Green Bay and Lake Michigan are causing a lot of problems with the owners of docks and boat lifts I guess.
We gabbed till the sun went down... and wow.. what a great sunset it was!
Good friends, good food and good weather.
What a Wonderful Weekend!
