Rainy Day: Camping World and She Said He Said

6/3/14 Tuesday in Parish, NY (Bass Lake-ROD)

Thought it best to get the repair situation figured out as soon as possible so we drove 45 miles to the nearest Camping World. By lunchtime we learned that they couldn’t order the rear camera/monitor set in time for us to get it installed before we wanted to move on. They recommended we call one further down our path. At least we now know they have what we want and its sku number. They looked into pre owned RVs for us but didn’t have any on hand. They’d just sold the one we saw from Buffalo (2012 Journey 34 Y). They said they had too many Class A rigs in March. Ah but most of us were in Florida then!

On our way, I noted that there weren’t any road signs for CR 38. John said there is a sign for River Rd (its other name). So I think why didn’t he just agree with me-that the road name we were looking for wasn’t shown? What I hear (interpret) is “you think …., but I think ….”. It feels like he thinks what I said is wrong, what he’s saying is right. Upon thinking about all this I then realized that he means “I agree and there is this other point, other way of seeing the situation.” I asked him and he agreed, he’s just adding to my comments. It would sure help if he said “I agree, and here is how I’m looking at it.” Of course now I hope I can remember all this interpretation because we’ll continue to irritate one another this way I suspect. It must come with living together 24/7 and thinking differently (male/female).

For our afternoon we tried to get our repairs scheduled at future Camping Worlds-no luck with the one at Chichester, NH. We’re waiting call backs from a mobile repair group and the Camping World in Massachusetts. Also waiting for a call back re getting to Schroon RV Park (ROD). Their map doesn’t jive with ours. I found the website for EZ pass (electronic toll pass -good for 18 states in the North East): www.e-zpassNY.com.

Supper was a new slow cooker recipe. Then the storm hit. Heavy gusts of wind, then dense rain. Our neighbors (just drove in today) had left their big awning out (hot today) and that wind blew it over on to the top of their rig. Then we had the sun peak out. Can you see the awning laying on the rig’s roof in the second sunset photo?

We’re supposed to get dry, warm weather for the next week or so. Yea!


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.
