    Pushed he closer to the garage in the corner of the driveway so I can park my sons car on the pad. He just left for boot camp [{:)] and will be gone for 8 weeks during the "Alternate side street parking" for winter.

    $50.00 ticket if you forget and leave it on the wrong side....

    Folded it up for the winter and topped off the water in the batteries. Safe and dry in the barn.

    Dropped our ol' Jayco off at Uncle Kenny's for storage. Uncle is a lifetime camper, so she will be in good hands. The Jayco looked like a skateboard [PUC] next to Uncle Kenny's giant Holiday Rambler motor home!

    We installed the BAL Lock-Arm Stabilizer on the front; so now the front and rear are done. We ordered a napkin holder and t.p. hanger. They are bird themed. We are starting to theme our J-Bird with birds! It has been fun. We are also looking at a nice wood letter/key holder for the entry wall. That will wait until after Christmas. We also bought a nice American made (Georgia) runner rug to go across the front of the dinette. We want to protect the carpet for the long haul. Last month we purchased a collapsible ottoman cube. It has been great with the sofa!

    Swept 7 or so inches of snow off of her. I don't like that extra weight on the pup. Anyone else do the same thing?

    I put her to bed and covered her nice and snug under her canopy for a (hopefully not too) long winter's nap.

    I worked a bit more on the supplies we brought inside for the winter, folding towels, etc. that were washed after the last trip. I'm trying to remember to make notes about what needs to be replaced or restocked before burying the totes in the store room.
    Made more plans and reservations for trips next year.
    Still waiting to hear from the dealer that the repairs are done, so we can bring the TT home, cover it, and do repairs and mods as time and weather allow. First trip planned is at the end of March.

    I bought a couple of those cubes too! Only $9.99 at Bed, Bath and Beyond. These have a couple of side pockets for eye glasses and what not.
    I bought new quilts (again) seems to be my weakness. [:!]

    I popped up the Palomino to get everything winterized. Will probably leave it up, as we need to use it as a guest house for the holidays.

    We picked up our TT after a couple of weeks at the shop. While it was there, we had a mobile service wash and wax it, so it's ready to cover when the wind cooperates.
    One leak, on the curb side (the floor next to the bed was wet after a few hours of driving in the rain), was deemed to be from the window. They fixed in some way - not sure just how, since it looks no different than when we took it in.
    The leak under the sink that I discovered the same day turned out to be from the p-trap. It may have been leaking a while (the moisture was under vinyl shelf liner). A while back, we had moved the stacking set of Magma cookware from the shelf to the floor, since we could see it was rubbing on the plumbing.
    The intermittent issue with the furnace flame not lighting could not be reproduced. The LP pressure and other tests were fine. So, a mystery it may remain.
    Since we didn't have it home to run the first of the month charge, that's under way.

    Of course not. [LOL] It's like taking a kid to the doctor. They're all of a sudden better.
