We thought we were making pretty good progress getting everything that needed doing done. We started with a plan to get everything done in the yard, by the end of Sept. Which left a week to pack up the motorhome and to do last moment things.
That plan came to a screeching halt with a phone call from son number two, Stu has been looking at renting a house/apartment to rent, after the last two places fell through, he was wanting to stay here while we were away for the winter.
We are glad to help him out, but it has created a lot of work, the grandchildren will be here weekends, we have been emptying the dresser drawers so they could use our built in dressers….then we have to find a place for all the totes we are filling..
We have just had a week of wonderful weather, now the rain is supposed to come for a few days, the fog as been rolling in and out all day.It made the spider webs in the oak tree in front of our house stand out.
Skip has finished a few projects the last two weeks, he reroofed the little shed next to the house.
Last year Jake had problems getting so he can get in the back of the Tracker, so Skip made him a ramp. It folds in the middle for storage, he made a leg that folds down and gives extra support at the hinge.
It has cross treads and is carpeted.
Problem is so far when we tried it out he refused to walk up it, finally he just jumped into the back like he was a young pup.
His vet told us to give him two glucosamine sulfate and one fish oil pill a day, and it has helped him quite a bit, he used to use his upper body and go up the stairs hopping like a rabbit, now most times he has a normal gait.
Earlier in the summer, Skip made a wooden rack to hold our maps and fastened it to the wall behind the passenger seat. After the mistake we made going on the wrong road last year, we bought Benchmark Atlases, we still get a sick feeling when we think about how dangerous it was. I called that blog Stupidity
Because it had to be mounted so low on the wall, he made a solid front to keep dog hair and dust out.
He also built more shelves in what used to be a clothes closet, he did half the closet a few years ago, and we found it to be more usable space with shelves.
We have just over three weeks before we leave, and we are getting pretty excited, hopefully the weather in Utah will hold, if not, plan B, which is Lone Pine, if it’s cold there we will make plan C.
I joined google+ because I couldn’t comment on some of the blogs I follow, and I still can’t comment. It’s a little frustrating but when I see Edd our oldest son this week he will figure it out for me, ( I hope )
