Tire Covers

12/21/13 Saturday at Clermont, FL (Orlando-TT)

Another beautiful, though hot (high 86 degrees) day. I saw the balloons (from 7:39 am to 7:50 am) and our resident Sandhill cranes flew over, honking. Plus an almost full moon. Got back to the RV to see John wiping the dew (and dirt) off some of Miss Zanzibar. How much better can it get?

After our usual routine, John left a note on our rig that we would be at G-54 (visiting). Sure enough, soon Ed Klein (908-307-00198) came by to let us know the tire covers were ready. Our friends, Naomi/Phil were curious asking about other things he makes (awning shades and topper covers) as well, so we invited them to come to see our new tire “shades”. John needed to put them together still, but they could look at finished ones on Len’s place nearby. Once Ed explained how to put the suction cups on and all, we went back to Naomi/Phil’s place. Now they’re excited about tire covers or awnings, wondering which they might get. We had a lovely visit, then split for lunch.

In the afternoon John got busy putting our tire covers together and on the RV while I napped.

RV 1 RV 2Notice, too, how spacious our site is.  Most here are.

After that I read while he napped! So much for swimming which was our original plan. Amazing how busy you can get when you’ve got nothing planned. At 3:30 pm the Gonzaga basketball game with Kansas State started so that kept us hooping and hollering until supper. John watched the Eastern Washington University college football game at the breaks. The sad news: our teams lost both those games. Sigh.

Supper was yummy, juicy hamburgers. Just watched taped TV shows afterward.


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.
