This week I "Failed Retirement"

It was a wild week at the ranch. Rain, no rain, hot, cool, cutting hay, not cutting hay... a typical week. We did get in a bit more hay and do think we might make the winter without using square bales to feed the cattle. We don't like to do this as it is labor intensive and takes about three times the effort to feed each day.

Other than that, I am not back on the motorhome maintenance project, washing, waxing and buffing the exterior and sealing the rubber roof with Eternabond Tape. Not today of course as the rain is about a mile from here at this time.

We did manage to visit the casino Thursday night after a very long and hard day at the ranch. I don't know what got into us but when I got home we kind of looked at each other and said "ROAD TRIP" and off we went. Friday we installed an antenna on my sister's old TV so they can see local channels when the Dish is out due to weather. Then we toured Sam's Wholesale Club and filled our little truck with groceries now that hurricane threats are minimal for this season. We don't stock up the freezer in June-September since the MH does not hold much in the freezer.

I visited with our carpenter today who will be here mid-month to do some door work and window trim as well as a few items in the living room. Other than that we are just hanging out waiting for the rain to pass us by.

I am trying to get caught up on reading but I too have been waxing the RV and did not have time to read.
