Two Nights in a Row . . .

Well, the promised rain didn’t show up last night, so we again sat outside with our coffee and enjoyed the nice weather.

What did show up last night was a power outage. About 2:45 it got very quiet in the rig. We use a white noise machine, and when it goes off, it is very, very quiet. The first thing I did was throw on some clothes and go outside and check the pedestal. And there was no power there.

Looking around, I saw some dark areas and some areas that still had lights. So it wasn’t a total outage, and I figured it was not going to get fixed until morning.  So going back inside, I turned on the vent fans and opened the windows. It was cool enough that we had a nice breeze coming in. So throwing off the covers, we went back to sleep.

About 5:30 I woke up freezing. The power and the AC had come back on, so I got up and closed the windows and turned off the fans. And everything has been fine since then.

But the strange thing is that Nick and Terry, who are parked right next door to us, didn’t lose power. Weird!

About 2:30 Chris Guld of Geeks on Tour came by Nick’s and we checked out different tips on our Galaxy S5’s for a couple of hours. We all learned a lot.

For dinner Jan heated up the last of the leftover Mancino’s Pizza from the other night. The toaster oven makes it nice and crispy, and very good.

And for the second night in a row, Miss Terry dropped off some of her homemade baked goods. It just doesn’t get better that that.

My son Chris called today, and his new motorcycle is a Yamaha as I thought. It’s Roadliner 1900 S. Looks like a really nice machine.

Brandi sent over these pics of Landon at his daycare playing the Bubble Game. They have a bubble machine and the kids take turns trying to pop all the bubbles as they squirt out.

Tomorrow we’ve got a day trip planned. We’re heading down to Peru, IN with Nick and Terry, Jan wants to visit because she lived there when she was 10 years old, and wants to check out the area. Nick wants to visit the Circus Museum there for a Gypsy Journal story.

We may also try to visit the Monon Connection Train Museum in, where else, Monon, IN. We’ll see how it works out.


Thought for the Day:

  1. Wow…that electric trouble is weird!! Hope you find out what really happened. SO did you have to use your generator then, to run the fans? You surely do need electric on all the time in that hot climate!!

    So glad to hear of all the happy times you are having there with Nick and Terry, etc. Sounds like there is never a dull moment!!

    Got the paperwhite better set up tonight…the plastic protection covers and stylus we ordered came. I already have over 200 books downloaded….a fair number are for reference and research later…but some cookbooks etc. along with a few light novels. All free!! LOVE IT!!

  2. Elizabeth,

    Didn’t have to run the generator. The fans will run all on the house batteries with no problem.
