Broken Radio Fixed

8/13/12 Monday at Bow,WA (Mt Vernon Campground-TT)

Slow morning, late getting up and going, except for an incident at breakfast. I’d ignited the stove propane, but it flared out like it was the large burner, then died out. John thought maybe he’d not turned the chassis battery on, but it was still on. I tried it again, noticing how strange the flame looked. Finally I realized the top part of the burner was cocked awry. Once we got that leveled again, the burner worked fine.

I cleaned house while John worked on the RV’s radio problem. Before I finished, he solved it. It had been fine all along, just operator error. He’d been pressing the “source” button instead of the “power” button that day we left Poulsbo RV. I’m sure it was partly because he was so tired at that point and because we rarely turn off/on the power to our radio. We’re both so grateful it’s solved and the cost was-FREE.

We spent our afternoon relaxing in our woodsy shade and exploring adventure possibilities, continuing these activities in the evening as well.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
