A break from regularly scheduled programming.....

 8:05 am - Sunday - February 21st - Wittmann, AZ - 46° F, 40% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the northwest......crystal, clear, blue skies again today with a forecast high of 69° F.  On this date in 2013 we were at a shooting range near Stuart Beach, FL with our good friend Ernie Prociw (pronounced Procee)......↴

....the views this morning........↴

As I suggested in yesterday's post it was time for a break in regularly scheduled programming after five straight days of working on projects.  We slept in, and after writing my latest missive I retired to my recliner to watch the rest of an English Premier League soccer match.  I had promised to accompany Tom to the local refuse transfer station to discard my old Flexsteel seat, the wooden pallet upon which the 'new' Flexsteel seat was delivered, and some other miscellaneous stuff whose time had come to be cast into the gigantic trash compactor at the transfer station.  We left around 10 am, and were home before 11 am, at which time I resumed my former position in my leather recliner.

I could not spend the entire day doing nothing so I spent a short time cleaning more salt residue off the front, and right front of the Newell.  I also disassembled the old charger/converter to scavenge the screws, the 20 amp cord, and the 12 volt fan.  Around 4 pm we had to stow the patio awning as the forecast afternoon winds had arrived.  They were gone by 8 pm, but we left the awning in its stowed position overnight.

We shared another community dinner with Tom, Darlene, Bob, and Sandy, and added to the mix some more friends of Tom and Darlene.....Gary and Cathy, who had stopped by to visit late afternoon.

We have now been in Wittmann for one week, and the weather has been exactly that for which we had hoped.....low humidity, temps in the 60's and 70's, and mostly crystal, clear, blue skies....this is how man was intended to live (that's my theory, and I'm sticking to it!).  It has been a time of much accomplishment with just a few projects remaining.....reinstall the rebuilt alternator when it is ready, install the new tachometer, install the 'new' Flexsteel seat, and get the new Michelin tires installed on our way out of town.  I'm sure I will add a few other small tasks to the list, but those are the four main tasks remaining.

Thanks for stopping by!
