Saturday was a lovely, light, luscious, delectable day (from the 'The Duchess Bakes A Cake', substituting 'day' for 'cake')....hahaha....I've always wanted to use that phrase in a sentence! The air was crisp....the sky was blue, and there was almost no breeze.....a decidedly t-shirt, shorts and flip flops kind of day. So what kind of outdoor activity might be inspired by such great weather? It seemed to me like a great day to finish wiping down the Newell exterior. It was so good to finally have the energy two days in succession to do something physical that I took up the challenge and did just that.
I was expecting it to take me a couple of hours, or more to finish, but in reality it took just an hour and all that remained to do was to polish my ALCOA wheels, which I will do on Sunday. I think the last time I got out the Mothers Aluminum Polish was two years ago when we were also here in Wittmann.
After finishing the exterior of the Newell TLE and I drove into Surprise to first visit the local Autozone where I would buy an extra can of Mothers for my ALCOA project, and then over to Walmart to do a 'big shopping'....the cupboards are getting bare! On the way home we stopped off at Wells Country Store to get my 5 gallon propane tank (the one I attach to our Sea-B-Que) filled. The last time I filled it was when we were still working at Smuggler's Den back in July. It felt light to me, but it only took 2.8 gallons. At $2.64 a gallon it only cost $7.41 to fill it up. I think we'll stop there in the Newell on our way out of town to top off our on board 6o gallon propane tank.....it will never be cheaper to do at $2.64/gallon!
Thanks for stopping by!
