Line Dancing and RV Purchase Thoughts

2/13/14 Thursday at Wauchula, FL (Peace River-TT)

I slept in because of a rough night. When we were done with breakfast and I was ready to do dishes John mentioned that line dancing class started at 9:30 am. Could I make it? I rushed dishes and got there just a little late. Lots of fun. I really love music and dancing.

Betty and I got talking (for an hour after the class), so John was rather perturbed when I got back. He survived though. Not like he hasn’t had his visiting episodes only to arrive home telling me he takes after his father.

It’s been really windy and cold but we have the windows open to help the carpet get completely dry. Brr. Talk about a fresh smell now throughout our coach-we’ve got it. So we spent the afternoon, John watching TV and I on the computer.

For the evening we discussed the financial possibility of buying a newer rig. There isn’t all that much spare money to pay ourselves back. Most of all, we could easily get someone else’s troubles. The people who don’t have major difficulties with their RVs keep them. So we could be spending piles of money for different issues. Still it’s hard not to dream of a more convenient life. Yes, this is far more convenient than living in a tent trailer/pop up!

Images of the rig after the rain last night. Notice how low the tire covers are (wind pushed them out) from their original position of just above the ground. This tire is sitting on 2 blocks.

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.
