Helping out......

8:01 am - Second Saturday - February 23rd - Wittmann, AZ - 44° F, 49% humidity, wind 5 mph out of the north.....clear, blue skies today with thin clouds on the horizon, and a forecast high of 77° F.  On this date in 2012 we were in Bullard, TX at the home of TLE's sister, Phyllis, awaiting the imminent delivery of our gear driven water pump.  The water pump had failed just as we finished parking our 62' in Phyllis' backyard......↴


First thing Monday morning, around 8:30 am, Bob and I rode with Tom into Phoenix to visit the local 'Parker Store', where Tom and Bob hoped to pick up a few air fittings to be used in fixing numerous air leaks under Bob's 2007 Newell Coach.  We were back before 11 am, at which time Bob went to work again fixing his air leaks with the newly acquired parts.  I've been remiss in not providing pictures of Bob and Sandy's beautiful 2007 Newell.....



.....it comes in at just under 46' in length, has four slides, and 1.5 bathrooms......


.....Bob and Sandy arrived last Wednesday for what they hoped would be two, or three days of finding, and fixing air leaks with Tom's help......they are now in their 5th day of fixing air leaks, but are nearing the end of the project.

While Tom and Bob were working away at that project, I spent time trimming bushes, and trees away from the white fence on the north side of the Newell barn. Whenever we stay with Tom and Darlene we always try to do a couple of chores for them to show our appreciation for their hospitality.  I managed to fill a flatbed trailer with the fruits of my labor.......


.....after a couple of hours working in direct sunlight.....something with which I have not had much experience lately......I was ready to call it a day.  I've got a few more bushes to cut back on the north side, and then I will turn my attention to the south fence line, and remove, completely, that large tree growing through the fence by Tom's trailer......


......that tree will take a lot of elbow grease to erase it from the landscape!

That was the extent of my day.  After putting away the tools I took a long, hot shower, and took a nap....it is 8:30 am on Tuesday, and I just received a call from Turbo and Electric of Phoenix, and am happy to announce my the rebuilding of our Leece-Neville shaft driven alternator is finished and ready for pickup! The end of our projects is in sight!
