One of the bigger projects over the last 2 weeks was one that caught us by surprise. The school wanted to get a food serving area certified by the Health Department. However, that required a floor that could be mopped. So the carpet that had been glued down for decades had to go. We had some fresh recruits for a few days when Sandy’s daughter, granddaughter and some friends arrived. So, we asked them to start on this project. They quickly became overwhelmed. Mere brute strength was not going to remove this firmly seated covering. Could we do it at all?
With the boat’s mast lying on the ground next to the RV, it is easy to inspect it for problems and address them. Sometime over the last 3 years, one of the spreader boots had vanished, so we installed new ones in one of the easiest “up the mast” tasks ever. The problem life jackets (remember the ant infestation?) were tossed in favor of new ones. And work continues on the forward windshield. (Aren’t you done yet?)
We are continuously given thanks and affection by the members of the church. Carol wanted Dave to see that she had a surprise gift just for him – a chocolate pie. And Cathy is greeted daily by Callie, whose wariness has finally been overcome as she comes up for her daily head scratch.
