Okay! Starting over on my second attempt at this, I was 99% done and then I did something that made everything except a few letters disappear, and of course that’s when WordPress also chose to Save the drafted document! Timing is everything.
Princess Roxie and I walked down to the boat ramp access this afternoon. My knee is not hurting any more, unless I accidentally twist it!!! I’m sure it would not be up for a hike, but I can finally walk without pain for a reasonable distance. It’s a perfect day, only 70 degrees with a slight breeze. I see I caught some cloud reflections in the above photo! This is a very shallow lake, just a maximum depth of 10′, with a lot of water lilies. Supposed to be good for fishing though; I’m guessing the bass would love all those lilies to hide in.
Pretty “blue flag” wild iris on the shore:
It was a busy day at the boat launch! First this pretty little guy, sunbathing on the beach:
Then this SNAKE, swimming toward the beach!! He was small and slender, only about 18″ long. I think it’s either a Western Fox Snake or an Eastern Milk Snake; I’m leaning toward the Milk Snake.If I was in NC I’d think it was a Copperhead, but he didn’t have that ugly wedge-shaped viper head. He didn’t appear to be hunting Mr. Froggie, so I let him go on his way without trying to make him detour. Can you find him in the second photo?
One of my chores in NC was to clean the propane jets on my refrigerator, which wasn’t cooling well at all. It works fine on electric, so I think that’s all that’s wrong with it. I looked at You Tube videos and pulled up the manual on line, but was only able to remove one part, which didn’t look dirty. The more important part, I couldn’t get loose at all. So I put the other part back on and it actually seemed to be fixed! It was cooling down to the high 30’s for a week or so. But it’s again failing….temps are only staying around 50 degrees. I called the nearest RV place which is almost 40 miles south, and the earliest appointment I could get was for next Monday, a whole week away! I guess I need to go buy a foam cooler and some ice today. Turns out those things are supposed to be cleaned more than once every 12 years; who knew?! Actually I’m pretty sure it was not used on propane much at all until last summer when I started full-time boondocking & dry camping. I’ve only had this camper for 5 or 6 years, can’t quite remember when I got it. It’s a 2004.
