9/2/15 (Wednesday) in Bend, OR (Bend/Sunriver RV Campground-TT)
After giving the coach a thorough cleaning, we started lunch, just when our dryer repair guy appeared. He was fine with our lunch activities and got right to installing the new timer. Everything he’d tested yesterday was working fine. After consulting his supplier/service pro, they figured the only thing that would cause the dryer not to give any heat was if the timer was not working. He’d asked if we wanted to try putting a new one in (cost: $93) and I figured we’re already spending for the mobile efforts, might as well go for it. The good thing is we’ll be giving the dryer a good test tomorrow.
As soon as he left (we’d finished lunch) we dashed off to Smith Rock State Park. This place was the first recommended to us when we arrived here. Then mentioned often later. It’s a beautiful park, the pictures will testify to that, with loads of neat trails and many happy rock climbers!
On our way home (Smith Rock is north of Redmond), we stopped at Michael’s for a 1” watercolor flat brush. Thanks to a helpful employee I learned I can use my smart phone to get www.michaels.com and their coupons, including a 40% off one regular priced item! That reminded me of how I used to get many of my watercolor supplies by getting that one item with a coupon. It felt funny buying one tiny tube of watercolor paint and walking out with just that. If I’m anything, it’s disciplined! We also stopped at an auto parts place to get the CRV a new air filter. They had to order one, but it’ll be there tomorrow.
Still playing cards after supper…still enjoying it.
