CRV Repair

1/31/14 Friday at Kissimmee, FL (Sherwood Forest RV Resort-Encore)

We’d been hearing a kind of clunking/clanging sound at the bottom of our car since before we left Longwood. It made me think of when your radio antenna hits a wire. So John took it into Honda today for repair. At first they said the rotors were worn uneven so they turned them. When John left he still heard the sound. The tech rode with him to hear it for himself and knew instantly what was wrong. The warranty didn’t cover the rotor repair and thankfully the tech didn’t charge us for the other: the brake caliper had a piece that had broken off. We had put 2 new wipers on but there was still a large area on the driver’s side that didn’t get wiped. Our kind tech also replaced our window wiper, also without charge. Whatever he did, it wipes everything clear now.

I stayed home to do laundry, prepare supper in the crock pot, make phone calls re campground reservations and watch my taped TV shows. I also saw 2 sand cranes fly right past our front windshield, watched numerous egrets, and a red shouldered hawk. Hard to believe, but that hawk would sit on a pedestal then fly over to the ground and peck at something. He also had a perch on a tree near there-all viewable from my front window. Great wildlife here in Florida.


Even though his appointment was at 9 am, dear John didn’t get home until after 3:30 pm. We had a lovely, quiet, relaxing evening.

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.
