First Repair Day

5/5/14 Monday in Decatur, IN (Allied Recreation Group)

Not sure when our appointment with the team would be we set our alarms last night for 5:45 am. John got to the office by 6 am and our name was called. I met him and our technician as they were leaving the office and I was heading to it. Thus we had to get the rig ready to roll in must minutes, then met with the team, explaining our repair requests.

Next up: breakfast. We went to West End Restaurant. Nice for a small breakfast. On our way to the repair facilities we stopped at the Post Office. Yay! Our mail was there from home and we could mail our box of books-trying to lighten the coach before moving into another one. Back at our rig (now in the shop getting attention) for brushing teeth and all. Then I took a rest while John read our mail. After a while we had a small lunch (due to our late big breakfast), we hung out at the lounge until 2:30 pm when they close and the techs bring the rigs back to their slots. I had a great time sharing info about Thousand Trails.

When we settled back into the coach I felt really tired, so I laid down again. When I got up we got talking with our son Joe for a good while. During that time our friend called, explaining that there is a great deal for a cruise next year from Florida. Next we called our cruise travel agent and got all set up. That was exciting.

Time for me to get supper going – convection baked parmeson crusted chicken. Yum! We were too tired to walk so we just watched TV then went to bed early, at 9 pm. We hadn’t heard from Ron so we don’t know when they’ll want our RV.

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.
