MsTioga is going to have to learn to stay away from overhanging things!
We could buy a vent cover in the USA and have it shipped here. But Jorge has it in his mind to make a vent cover. Hmmmmm?
Anyway, the plan is to make a vent cover out of the purchased plywood. Then take the new cover to Panchito's Body Shop here in the Village of Santillán and have him cover the wood vent cover with fiberglass. Then paint it. And finally, install the new cover on the fridge vent.
PS: We have some other projects planned for the plywood. But we will write about those later!
12 Noon - Lunch
For lunch, the menu is BBQ chicken left-over. I like cut-up chunks of BBQ chicken wrapped in a flour tortilla. Carrots and strawberries were on the menu too.
The pic in the background is my son David who died in 2010. I sure miss that David!
2PM - Last winter
During last winter, our readership dropped like crazy. Daily visitors went from 3,200/day in October, 2012 to 2,250/day in March, 2013. Readers were bored by our blog. We were not traveling much. Mostly we just stayed at El Chaco RV Resort and watched movies.
During that winter, I did not know what was going on? I mostly hung out inside of MsTioga. Not visiting with other RVers much. But now that I am thru that period in my life, I am able to look back with perspective. I believe that I now know what was happening.
I was depressed because of what happened to my children. One dead. The other out of my life. Last winter I was grieving for this loss. Also, I was having difficulty adjusting to my physical decline. The aging process really caught up with me during the last several months.
But I slugged my way thru those times, and now I am doing really good. Wanna know something? I am not watching many movies anymore. Those movies were a diversion. I do not need a diversion anymore. I have too many things to do!
Thank you for hanging in there with me!
4PM - Busy Bees!
Thru-out the morning, The TiogaRV Team have been Busy Bees. First we put up a cross for our two hummingbird feeders. The cross is anchored to the ground by two holes dug into this very rocky earth. In one hole goes the cross, and in the hole a cross-brace. You may see pics of this construction in the next few days.
After putting up the hummingbird cross, we prepared the hummingbird nectar. Standard recipe. One part sugar to four parts water. After the nectar had cooled, we put out the feeders. In only a few minutes, we had out first hummer! Fantastic!!
Later on we set up a wood shop in front of MsTioga to mill up the plywood for our construction project. After milling up a couple of parts, hunger pangs had set in. We took a break for half a peanut butter and jam sandwich. The air-conditioner was turned on and has brought temperature down from 88°F to 82°F. Humidity is down too!
