Cell Phone Learning Day

7/30/13 Tuesday at Jefferson, OH (Kenisee Lake-TT)

We were busy all day here in the campground. Another gorgeous, sunny day in the 70’s and even dry.

Most of the morning I spent talking to repair agents. Amazingly, Monaco RV Service, who repaired our 2 big leaks, guarantees their work for 90 months. Also, they are closing that service shop in October, so she referred me to the Fleetwood RV Service (both Monaco and Fleetwood are now owned by the same investor group) shop in Decatur, IN. More good news, because our friends Allan and Pauline had excellent experience getting their leak solved by this crew, for $99/hr instead of the $120/hr we were charged at Waukarusa, IN. Tomorrow we’ll talk to the service tech to schedule the date. Sooner means less water damage, so we’re trying to think “flexible”.

Once that was settled, I called Safelite Autoglass to repair the rock chip in our Honda CRV’s windshield, garnered about a week ago, on the road of course. I did get some smartphone experience in before lunch.

The afternoon was all about our cell phones: John learning his while I talked with the repair people in the morning, then he helped me get my apps and organize stuff. Got both my email accounts on it and the Mobile Hotspot to work with my computer. Boy, all that was tiring, so I took a nap until supper.

Night time, I worked on the blog stuff.


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.
