Thunderstorms/Heavy Rain and Ordered Wireless Rear Camera/Monitor

7/16/14 Wednesday in Rochester, MA (Gateway To Cape Cod-TT/OW)

Finally, as they’d predicted this time, the big rains and lightening and thunder came at midnight. Woke me up several times during the hot humid night. The rain brought huge puddles in the roadway during the day but we weren’t affected. It did rain all day.

Note: this paragraph is all about the rear camera situation. Yesterday I’d called Monaco for guidance on our rear camera. They recommended contacting (they specialize in RV rear cameras) which I managed to do this morning. Since the problem is likely (according to both Monaco and rvcams) to be more than the camera, we elected to purchase the digital wireless version that should work in our RV. It’s made by the same company that made our original (no longer built) model. It’ll get here Tuesday. We’d also heard of a recommendation from a friend this morning for RV repairs, so we called Major’s RV to see if they would diagnose and install so our warranty company would help in the cost. They will!

For the rest of our day we watched “Paint Your Wagon” and “The Odd Couple”. First time for me to see them, John had them memorized. I completed that spilled laundry soap project. For several days I’d put a fan on that shelf to dry the soap, then would periodically scrape the remains with a putty knife. Today I finished it off by scrubbing the shelf surface with coarse sandpaper. Then the fun part, I cut-to-fit a shelf liner that’s got a slip proof bottom (to set on the remains of rubber cement glue from the old carpet surface). It looks SO good and feels good too. Nice to put my things back in place.

Our fun at night was playing cards, we each won a game, while enjoying our mudslide drinks. I swear I had good cards because the drink hijacked my mind!

Showers bring flowers so here’s one from Canada (Niagara Falls area):

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.
