Our temps have reached near 70 degrees for the last few days–chilly mornings, sunny and warm afternoons–perfect weather–now if I could only find a place where the weather is this perfect year round!
Saturday we stayed home and puttered. I quilted and finished a little quilt for Jeane. The Cowboy worked on various motorhome projects. It’s amazing what that man can do–the front windshield curtain in this motorhome is operated by an electric motorhome and the previous owners told us it didn’t work–one of the ONLY things they told us didn’t work!! The motor does work, it just needs to be re-wired–someone unhooked the wiring??? The shower glass wall is curved with a curved hanging door. It’s bearings are worn and thus the door was always in danger of falling off–not good–it’s glass! The previous owners’ answer to this problem was to remove the door and place it on the bed every time they moved–not happening! So, the Cowboy is using his lathe to create new bearings–he is amazing.
Sunday Nat rallied to a certain extent and we gathered at his house. It’s a roller coaster to say the least. Nat was a bomber on a B29 aircraft named Flak Alley Sally during World War II–when I Googled the plane name this photo popped up. We also have a copy of this photo or a similar one in Nat’s things. Nat is in the second row, far left.
Monday we ran errands in town, dropping off Jeane’s quilt and making various other stops. Tuesday morning I am heading to Arkansas–I’ve been torn about whether to go or stay and the Cowboy wants me to go. This is a trip that has been planned and tickets purchased for a long time. My nephew Clayton is getting married Saturday evening. On the Monday after the wedding I am traveling to West Palm Beach, Florida for my yearly gathering with my Kimberly-Clark Corp. nurse friends. It’s a long time to be gone but I can always jump on a plane and come home–so I am going and I can’t wait to see my family.
My little bunny quilt–now it needs to be quilted.
