Decision on Verizon Bills

In order to arrive at a decision about what to do about the bills from Verizon, I Blogged to you about what to do. Also, I put the situation to friends.

The situation is that Verizon charged me for service after I had left them and had already begun service with T-Mobile. Further, Verizon appears to have overcharged me for service while I was with them. Even further, Verizon sold me equipment that did not work and would not [Could not?] rectify the deficiency. This deficiency led to my moving to T-Mobile.

T-Mobile has a program to attract customers which consists of paying off equipment charges for new customers who come to T-Mobile from other communication providers. This pay off was substantial. $740!

I considered just keeping that $740 myself since, in my opinion, Verizon gave me poor service in addition to overcharging me for service while I was with them. But my final decision was to pay Verizon the $740 because that is what my values told me was the right thing to do.

Park at Lake Murray

The Scampy Team is Day Camped at the Regional Park at Lake Murray in the City of La Mesa California. This is one of the places that we go often. It's a peaceful place. A lot of people here. Yet, still peaceful.

Our breakfast plan is a crisp Belgian Waffle. Yummm!

PS: At breakfast this morning, Clint Eastwood's "Play Misty For Me" was on.

Songs Make Us Happy

Boid and I are different species. However, we have things in common. And, one of those things is music. We turn on music held by Little iPhone first thing after waking up each morning.

We have recently added some music to our library.
➜ Little River Band - Greatest Hits [Link]
➜ Pet Shop Boys - West End Girls [Link]
➜ Foreigner - No End In Sight [Link]

Boid and I have no clue why we like the music that is in our library.

Lost and Found

Eyeglass Report

After pondering about what to do about my missing eyeglasses, I decided to phone my optometrist for advice.

He advised me that he would be able to replace my missing glasses and give me 60% off. So, that's what I've done. Bought replacement glasses from my eye doc.

The frames have very strong hinges. I've had problems with hinges breaking. These should last a long time. If I don't lose them!

In the meanwhile, I'm getting along with my old glasses.

Just Poking Around

I'm making this Blog post so that you'll know that I am OK. Just messing around. Maintaining Scampy and Transito.

But what do you expect from an ancient fulltiming RVer? An adventure every day? Not gonna happen.

Right now, we are Afternoon Camped at one of the best 24 Hour Fitness joints in San Diego. Later this evening, when there are not too many members in the club, we'll go in there to work out a bit.

In the meantime, I'm watching Clint Eastwood's movie, "Heartbreak Ridge."

Things happen

More Stuff After Glasses

Later yesterday evening I returned to Rite Aid to look for the missing eyeglasses. I looked in store aisles where I had not walked with the idea that perhaps the glasses dropped to the floor and skittered away. Nothing!

When I left Rite Aid while driving thru the parking lot, a lady backed her car out without looking. The rear of her car knocked off Transito's driver side mirror! I was able to reattach the mirror.

The next day, I returned to Rite Aid to see if the missing glasses were turned in to lost and found. I actually found three eyeglasses that looked very much like the missing glasses. But, they were not my glasses!

After breakfast, I was cleaning up when I noticed that the top of the toilet room door's piano hinge had come loose at the top of the door. I went to Ace Hardware and bought 1-1/2" long screws to replace the 1/2" existing screws. That did the trick!

What more can happen?

Living Easy

It's really terrific not to have the responsibilities that I had when I was younger. A little while ago, I was thinking about what I wanted to do today.
➜ Make this Blog post
➜ Grocery shop
➜ Dump holding tanks and fill fresh water tank

Also, lately I have been spending time on improving the foods that I eat. Tuna Salad is a meal that I not only enjoy eating, it is also good for me. Bagged coleslaw is used for the salad. Tuna Salad was added to my menu only recently. 

What do you think? Is this life of mine easy, or what?

Volume App

The Scampy Team is Morning Camped in the parking lot of 24 Hour Fitness on Balboa in the City of San Diego.

During breakfast [Tuna salad on Matzos] the movie Terminator was playing. Even though the sound of the movie was coming thru amplifying headphones, it was not loud enough.

Searching online, we found an APP from Global Delight named Boom2 which claimed to achieve remarkable sound improvement. When we used Boom2, it worked great!

I am sooooo happy about that!

My Last Home

Twayler, our large trailer, remains stored at Lone Wolf Colony RV Resort in the City of Apple Valley, California. We have not actively been attempting to sell Twayler.

The main reason for not trying hard to sell Twayler is that we may wish to live in Twayler someday.

We cannot know what the future holds. It may be, that I will remain healthy for many years. If not, Twayler may be a good place to live.

February 25, 2003

I drove MsTioga home on the 25th of February, 2003. The anniversary of that date is coming up this month. That date marks the beginning of my fulltiming life. 15 years ago [Link].

After the big accident that destroyed MsTioga in 2014, I had heart surgery and lived at Guava Gardens Apartments for two years. But now, here I am. Back fulltiming again.

I know that the last day is coming for me. The last day for me to be an RVing fulltimer. But until then ..............!
