Test run.

Having got the boat safely to the trailer, we now had to make a test run. We hadn’t owned a motor boat before so didn’t know what to expect when I launched it.

The great day came and Peter and Suzie called to say they wanted to be in on the fun. Great, Peter was […]

Pickle Ball

Pickleball is a new fad for us seniors. It’s a game to try to get us exercising so that we can live another three days and four hours beyond our allotted time. Except for those who pass away on the court from the effort, years before their time. Pickleball was started in Washington state and […]


The problem with having to transition between two places all comes down to underwear. Whenever we go to the trailer we have to take 

Or find your tablet.

a certain amount of clothes with us. The problem is the tendency to miscalculate. I tend to take too many undies to the trailer and then […]

The Cedar Fence

We decided that the RV lot was too small, or to be more correct, we had too much parking space and not enough party room. So we decided to place a cedar fence across half of the parking area and to tear down a few ornamental cedars to give us the room. I was originally […]

The Hawaiian Sun Chair.

Maui Sun Chair.

When we were in Arizona Rosalie bought a Hawaiian Sun Chair.  I would have pointed out the fact that it couldn’t be used with a sky hook but actually had to hang from something. But I wasn’t with her at the time.

camp fire. The sun was shining […]

Buying an older trailer. Part two.

Rosalie had a Home Depot gift card given to her by her friends in the office when she retired. As she didn’t need any new tools she decided to donate it to replacing the floor of our older trailer. So off we toddled to buy some laminate. We were very fortunate because they had just received a […]

Wood …..but not the pub.

We needed firewood at the trailer, so before we went away I phoned a few local dealers and found that they didn’t have any. They weren’t allowed in the woods to […]

Buying an older trailer. Part one.

So, buying an older trailer

Buying an older trailer isnt a bad idea but there are some drawbacks.Our trailer isn’t that old, 2006, but I think it may have been neglected somewhat. I have had to do numerous repairs, mostly minor but annoying just the same. We had a lot of water leaks and one […]

The Dreaded Black Tank.

We had the trailer for about a month when we noticed that every time we emptied the black tank it would back up immediately. We eventually called Roto-Roter. The guy came out and vacuumed the tank through the toilet. It was still plugged so he used a high-pressure nozzle to clear it. We also retrieved […]
