It’s All Nick’s Fault (again!)

Head Update: So Far, So Good

It looks like some of the swelling has gone down, but I still wouldn’t be surprised if I  have a dent in my head when this is all over. We’ll see.

Well, it looks like our windshield repair is still on for tomorrow. Josh, of Coach Supply, wants us at his shop a little after 9am. Says he picked up all the parts this morning.

I was relieved to hear that as I was worried about getting a windshield gasket for a 15 year old rig. American Coach said they had one in stock, but companies sometimes say that until you try to actually order one.

It’s less than 4 miles up to Coach Supply in Michigan, so we’ll be ready to head out about 8:45. Josh said it should only take about 4-5 hours or so.

They’ll pull out both windshields, remove the old gasket, replace the gasket, and then reinstall the old driver’s side glass, and install the new one on the passenger side.

We’ll see how it goes.


Apparently Landon’s ‘school’ is doing dinosaurs this week.

Who was that Masked Landon

I made the mistake of calling it his daycare, and he, very indignantly, said, ‘No, it’s School’.


Sometime in the next week or so I’ll be switching this blog over to a new site.

You can check it out here. New Site

As I said, Nick has been nagging me to start running ads on my site like he does on his. But to do that, I have to move the blog from the free area of WordPress onto a paid site. And since my original theme, DIgg 3 Column, is no longer available, I also had to choose a new theme. Nick suggested that I just use his theme, but I figured that would be just too incestuous.

This new one, Brava, is not perfect, but it’s the best one I’ve found so far. That’s not to say I won’t find a better one in the next few weeks and change to a new one.

Later this evening, Terry Russell invited us over for warm Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie. Really, really good.

And Nick’s still trying to get me to switch over to his Suffusion blog theme. Nag, nag, nag.

  1. So,am I going to have to bookmark you? I will never remember the URL 🙂 Now, I just start typing “Ourrv…”

  2. Snowbird,

    Once I make the switch, the blog URL will still be, just like now.

    The 173.bb6 thing is just temporary.

  3. Greg, I looked and like the new site just fine. Also like the links to other blogs if I want to read more. Will you continue sending your blog in an email, or just a link to your website blog?

    Just one other thought, which doesn’t affect me normally as I have good bandwidth in our house — the changing picture at the top of your website looks pretty but consumes bandwidth. People in an RV park might have trouble reading your blog on the website due to the extra strain and slowness of loading all those pixels for the pictures.

    Just a thought for your consideration.

  4. I like the new blogsite. Looks fine to me.

  5. Jim,

    Actually I optimized those pics, so they’re only about 12K a piece.

    All four of them together are smaller than just one of the pictures I usually post.
