Repair Issues Addressed (Microwave and Wall)

12/30/13 Monday at Clermont, FL (Orlando-TT)

Normal morning stuff until 10 am when we went to the Clermont Post Office. Christmas actually came this time – gifts from our son Justin/Jamie and our grandchildren. Sweet. We even got drawings from the kids to put on our refrigerator.

After lunch I was determined to attend to our repair issues, so I called a couple places for bids on our wall (where there has been major leak issues). Got one set for the day we leave for Betty/Denny’s place. I encouraged John to work on our microwave issue. He did. The upshot of our afternoon is, after help from Larry and more help from the Monaco technician, we learned that this issue is our inverter. We’ll need to buy a new one (not cheap items). So we’re set to go to Alliance Coach in Wildwood, FL to have that inverter installed. While talking about that I asked about an estimate for the wall damage. She noted that it may be necessary to tear into the wall to see how extensive the damage is, thus getting an appropriate estimate. Hmmm. Good point. So I called the previous RV business to cancel, since we might just as well have a Monaco business tackle this one.

This makes us wonder how much money we need to spend on our Miss Zanzibar yet again. Is it time to seriously consider buying a different RV? The problem is we don’t know what issues lie in wait for us with some other used rig and it will cost much more to buy a newer (than 2003) used diesel RV. Anyone have some spare cash they want to give away?

Tomorrow I get 2 cavities filled. Yippee.

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.
