Interesting Wx over the past couple of days anyway. Yesterday it snowed off and on all day. Itâ€™s been snowing today at least since I got up at 0600 this morning.
After a couple of minor setbacks, we finally got financing for the RV we were trying to buy. Which was freaky since â€œeveryoneâ€ tells us what EXCELLENT credit we have! Except you canâ€™t get anyone to loan you any money. But it all worked out.
Driving the â€œnewâ€ RV from the dealer to the house reminded me of that 60-passenger bus I drove in Saudi during Desert Storm. BIG! But nothing I canâ€™t get used to. I think itâ€™ll be fun getting out on the road and driving around. Until the first time it breaks down! Then Iâ€™ll probably wonder why in the heck I ever thought it would be fun. But thatâ€™s all part of it, I guess.
So, Iâ€™ve been out hooking up electrical and water and trying to learn how the thing works. It has itâ€™s â€œdings,â€ but nothing that really matters. Canâ€™t get the generator to run more than 3 minutes before it chugs out; but Iâ€™m trying to check that out. Of course, Iâ€™m as much a mechanic as I am an electrician!
Speaking of which; bought a box of â€œelectronicsâ€ from the back of the South Clubâ€™s President truck (he was donated old â€œradioâ€ stuff by the widow of a ham) for $20 that included an old Bell & Howell Schools Oscilloscope. Plugged it in but it wouldnâ€™t light off. Took the cover off and everything looked fine so I started making sure everything was tight. Dug out a couple of beeâ€™s that were entangled in the wiring.
So, after tightening up and â€œdebuggingâ€ I plugged it back in and it came right up. Cool! Now, what the hell do I do with the thing? Looked up a lot on-line but it just ainâ€™t making any sense to me. I need someone to show me how to use the thing. Ah well.
Letâ€™s see. Really not much else going on around here. Mostly been hanging around the house and working on the RV. SWMBO and I went out to the BBQ place in Silverdale last Friday. Took our son, Brian, with us. Regular shopping trips to Albertsonâ€™s and Costco.
Well, snow is turning to rain now so it ought to get pretty slushy out there. Think Iâ€™ll walk the dog!
