The difficulty factor.....

6:45 am - Thursday - June 20th - Ramona, CA - 60° F, 86% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the west by southwest......marine layer this morning.....slightly foggy.....with a forecast high of 75° F.....the view this morning......↴



After two days off work it is always difficult to get back into the swing of things on Wednesdays, and to add to the difficulty factor this Wednesday saw temps get into the low 80's after several successive days in the low to mid 70's.  My body is attempting to acclimate to the warming weather, but with temperature swings of 7-10 degrees, or more from day to day the difficulty factor increases exponentially for my almost 70 year old body.

After the heavy weekend use the pool was lightly used on Monday and Tuesday, so there was not much to do except fish a few pool toys out of the pool, and straighten the pool furniture.  Rich had a few projects for me to handle in the morning such as installing a new kitchen faucet in the cabin in site 64, install new door hardware on a door in the Red Barn, and hammer down nails on the deck of the owners cabin.  After taking care of those projects, and helping TLE freshen up the two restroom facilities, I finished the morning cleaning up the horseshoe pit area before meeting TLE at home for lunch.

By the time we returned at 1 pm we were into the heat of the day, and it was time for me to retrieve the hand blower and finish what I had started Sunday.....cleaning Oak Street on both sides of the island.  I had only finished about 1/2 of that area before it was quitting time Sunday.  It took about an hour to finish that, and then it was time for me to head up to Peppertree Street to clean it for the first time.  Peppertree is the highest point in the park.  There are only 7 sites on that street, and they are all 'Premium' sites meaning they have concrete patios, lots of shade, and a lot more privacy.  I think virtually all those sites are filled with monthly customers.  At any rate no one had cleaned that street since TLE and I have been here so I got to it.  It took me the better part of 2 hours to finish blowing the leaves, dust, and gravel off the length of Peppertree, and then it was 4 pm.....


......with the completion of Peppertree I have now cleaned all the streets within RORVR,  and now that they've all be cleaned thoroughly one time it should be easier to maintain them over the rest of the summer. 

The electricity will be turned off in the park this Friday (6/21) from 8 am to 3 pm, so I will need to hookup our Honda 2000 generator, which means I needed to fill up our 5 gallon gas can.  The odds are I have enough gasoline for 7 hours, but I've been meaning to fill it up anyway, so TLE and headed into town to do just that, plus TLE had forgotten to buy some bread when we were at the store Tuesday.

We were back by 5 pm, and settling into the evening.  We watched a recorded women's FIFA World Cup match between England and Japan, won by England 2-nil.  Frankly the game could have gone either way, but England took advantage of their scoring opportunities, and Japan did not.  Nevertheless, it was a very good match to watch.  We also watched 'The Amazing Race' live, closed the park facilities down at 9:30, and were in be a little after 10 pm.
