About 10 I headed down to Sunriver to try and find the correct adapter so I could finish up my drinking fountain / water faucet install. The one I got yesterday should have worked but it didn’t seem to match up with the 3/8” tubing I had.
And when I got to the hardware store, I found out why. I left the old one at the checkout counter when I went back to find the right one. But as I looked, my eyes kept coming back the to the same one I got yesterday. And in looking closer, it looked bigger than the one I got yesterday that was too small.
I had brought a piece of the 3/8” tubing with me and compared it with the adapter. And it sure looked to me that it would fit. So I took it back up to the counter and checked it against the one I had brought back. And they were different, even though the part number on the package was the same.
At first I thought maybe someone swapped it out and brought it back, but looking closely at the packaging, I could see only one set of staple holes in the cardboard. So it had apparently come from the company that way.
After the hardware store, I went next door to the Shell station and picked up some lottery tickets and then headed back the park.
Jan had been wanting to whip up a batch of her World Famous Chili, but hates smelling up the coach for several days with the aroma of grilling hamburger and onions. So I took her, the hamburger and onions, and her electric skillet, and set her up on the picnic table outside. Worked like a charm.
I hooked up all the water lines on my project but didn’t mount everything so I could check for leaks first. I did have one very small leak, but I’ll wait and see what it’s doing tomorrow. I just put a bowl under it for now.
About 4:30, after cooking in the slow cooker all afternoon, Jan served up the chili with corn tortillas, grated cheese, and crunchy tortilla strips. Really, really delicious, and we’ve got plenty left for more meals.
Brandi, Lowell, and Landon are just finishing up their first week in their new home. Looks like they’ve really settled in.
