When we bought our La-Z-Boy recliners late last summer, we found out that the floor under the old couch was a bit spongy. Since then, when ever we “use” the slider, we pull the chairs out so that they sit more on the main floor of the RV and not on the slide area. Called Kerry McColloch at McColloch’s RV repair and storage in Sacramento and lined up the “big repair” for when we are there in late April/early May. He wanted some pictures, so I went over to the storage area Saturday and got measurements and pictures so that he has an idea of it. When we get to Sacramento, we will take it by his place soon after we get there, let him get all the particulars and line up an actual date to have the repairs, which will take three days or so to be completed. That “should” have us ready for Alaska.
The view from down under shows a slight separation along he side.
But the spongy area is right in the middle within the white circle and extending to the left. All around the edges seem to be real solid, which is a good sign. It will be bad bad bad if there is rot within the walls.
Last Thursday we decided to finally try the New England's Ale House Grille, formerly the “Olde School House” on Alt 19 highway near Alderman in Palm Harbor.
Other than being a bit loud, there was a large group of ladies sitting where this picture was taken, and we were in the first table along the left side past the bar, we really enjoyed it. Marcia had hoped that they would have more fish, especially fish not deep fried, but they did have a special that night of seared tuna, which along with a bowl of stew, was enough for her. I had a large bowl of Clam Chowder to go along with the large Nacho plate we had as an appetizer.
I think next time we will try the outside seating….then Skruffy can sit along side of us too instead of waiting in the car. (I know, a service dog is allowed inside Restaurants, but we choose not to take her inside unless it is just too hot outside.)
After dinner we went over to Crystal Beach to view another Florida Sunset. Yes, Marcia took this picture of my “best side” as I was looking for an opportunity to get a picture of some of the birds flying around.
I think she got my backside because she knew the best picture that I could get of a Pelican was of its backside when it took off from the water.
Not that I didn’t try…but the sun was facing me, and that makes it hard on taking pictures of flying objects.
There were a few birds, other than the many seagulls, which did pose for me though.
As I took a walk out on the pier, Marcia and Skruffy stayed back in the car.
Using separate cameras, we both seemed to get the same shot at the same time. Mine, with new camera, on the left, hers, with old camera, on the right. I like hers better than mine, that palm branch gives it some character.
And when she framed the picture with the tree and bush on each side, well….can’t beat that one.
Although this one comes close…..
I do have to admit that there are some nice beach-side properties around here. But I like having a home on wheels where our view can change whenever, wherever we wish to take it.
