Jan wanted to be sure that everyone knows that I performed my husbandly duties yesterday.
I painted her toenails.
Get your mind out of the gutter, Nick.
She says I do a better job than the nail salons, and I work cheaper. Well, at least she doesn’t have to tip me.
I think my Culligan RV-800 RV Water Filter threw up last week.
I’ve used these for several years and really like them better than those blue ones from Wal-Mart. But last week I noticed that both the sink and the toilet had restricted water flow. So today I took the sink pull-out faucet sprayer apart and found the strainer full of carbon granules. And when I ran water out of the hose, I got a few more. So after letting the water run for a while with no more carbon bits, I put everything back together and now it works fine.
Tomorrow I’ll pull the toilet water supply hose off and clean out the strainer there. Hopefully that will fix it too.
I may check out some of the vendors at the Escapade and see what I can find there as a replacement.
About 11am Jan and I headed over to Famous Dave’s BBQ to have lunch with Mike and Janna Clark. We’ve been reading each other’s blogs for a good while, but this is the first time we’ve had a chance to get together. Janna’s blog is called Tin Teepee/Log Cabin and can also be found in the blog list on the right side of this blog.
It was really amazing how many things we all have in common. Jan and Janna (see, even their names are similar) both worked in the medical field, and like many of the same authors, while Mike and I both used to install satellite dishes commercially. And of course, there’s the whole RV’ing thing too, although they don’t fulltime.
Janna and Mike live on a ranch about 100 miles from Billings and come in a couple of times a month. And lucky for us, one of those times matched up with our stay here. We had a great time getting to know them and hopefully we’ll be able to meet up again soon.
So far I haven’t been able to get my old taillight converter apart. The plastic case is heat-welded together and I’ve sawed on it a while with no luck. It’s possible that it’s a solid epoxy block inside, which usually means they don’t want you to know how simple the circuit really is. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow.
I think I’ll probably end up building one of my own.
Thought for the Day:
Having an opinion is not the same as having the answer.
