Since I used yesterday's blog post to give the interior pictorial tour of our coach I haven't written about Friday yet, so the first part of this blog will cover Friday's happenings, then we'll get to Saturday.
Friday we were expecting to hear from our dear friends Charles and Bobbie sometime in the afternoon as they would be arriving for about a week of touring Acadia National Park. I have known Charles since junior high school, so we go way back. They live in Arizona through the winter and early spring, and travel in their Landmark 5th wheel during the summer into early fall each year to escape the Arizona heat. The past three summers we have met up with them wherever we happened to be working. In 2016 it was South Lake Tahoe, in 2017 it was Yellowstone, and this year, of course, here in Acadia National Park. At any rate, since we were not sure when we would hear from them we hung around home most of the day.
I spent time puttering in the trailer, and fixing my most favorite coffee cup ever. I have had this coffee cup since 2005, or 2006. It was given to me by one of my sons-in-law after he and my daughter had returned from a trip to Alaska to visit his parents. This is the best thermal coffee cup I have ever had. It keeps my precious coffee HOT for about an hour. It's only flaw over the years has been the propensity of the handle to become detached from the coffee cup. I have reglued this handle to 'old green' about 5 times over the years using two part epoxy. The most recent time was over 3 years ago, and that repair has lasted the longest of all the repairs I have done. This coffee cup is like a guy's favorite t-shirt that he wears until it virtually turns to dust. I really love this cup, and have so many good memories attached to it!
