It's Coming Together Kinda

It was a long windy week here. Temps weren't bad if you didn't mind being blown all over the place. Haven't even used the electric heaters.

My friend Lucy and her husband Darrell stopped by this week. That was such a pleasure to see Lucy up and about and able to get up the steps and back down again. Made her real happy too.

Darrell, climbed into the back of the truck and took measurements for the bed. The bed frame will be made out of 2" PVC pipe and 1/4 " plywood for the top. I can't wait for it to get here. Since the plywood is here they will bring a saw with them. 

I was at Bed, Bath and Beyond today and picked up one of those little heaters, it only is 350 watts so that should  work great for the camper with the 1000 watt inverter. Tomorrow I will empty out the back of the truck so I can clean it up really good. And I need to go through the stuff that has been in the drawers for the past 2 years. I'm sure all the hygiene stuff needs to be thrown out and replaced and what ever clothes that are out there will need to be laundered. Hopefully a short trip next month will happen.

Tracy and I had our breakfast at Denny's today and then a little shopping to get some things for her trip to CO. next month. She found some lined leggings at Bed, Bath and Beyond that they had the last time we went. She was glad she waited to buy them since they were on clearance today for $4. and I had some thermal shirts for her to borrow. She is getting so excited, a friend of hers won this trip and is taking her along. Last year they went to CA. on another trip that was won. I can't even win a pk of gum.

Good Night All


  1. I had an uncle who won a Pontiac auto years ago. A few years after that he entered an essay contest and won an Edsel! Too bad the Edsel never made it and he didn't keep it long. Some people seem to win contests easily and others can't win anything. I fall into the latter group also, so you're not alone.

    I'm so excited to hear about getting your truck ready for camping. Waiting for the next iinstallment.

  2. It sounds like things are falling into place for you! Good luck, and have fun!

  3. Hi Gypsy,

    I know I'm not alone in never winning anything, but makes me happy for the ones who do.

    I am getting pretty excited about getting the truck ready too. Today I will pull everything out so I can clean it up and make room for setting up the bed again.

    Hi Tatersmama,

    Yes it sure seems like it. It has been a long time with being tide to the house.

  4. Glad you are making some plans! It is exciting to plan an adventure! I have to get some tire work done, I need one new tire,and need to rotate the others...and hope with an oil change it will be road ready when and If I get to make a trip this spring.

  5. Hi Sondra,

    I'm getting excited about this. I emptied out the camper today, tomorrow I will vacuum it out. I hope you will get to do your spring trip.

  6. I like the idea of the 2" PVC pipe. I sell that stuff and it's pretty sturdy. Your bad sounds cool! I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
