The 4th.......

 7:31 am - Monday - July 5th - Seal Rock, OR - 57° F, 88% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the north.....heavy marine layer this morning with clearing later, and a high of 64° F.  On this date in 2014 TLE and I were rafting on the Truckee River near Tahoe City, CA with two of my daughters and their boyfriends (now both sons-in-law)........↴

TLE, Sharon and Rod

Sunday, July 4th, was the perfect weekend day.  The north by northwest wind pushed the marine layer offshore for the first time in a few days, and we were able to sit outside for the first time since last September to watch Le Tour de France on our outdoor TV for a couple of hours.  In fact, I left the outdoor TV on all day, and actually watched a good portion of round four the latest PGA event, which had a three way tie at the end of regulation, and went to 6 extra holes before the match was finally decided.....

I normally have my pirate flag flying, but decided to run the red, white and blue up the pole on Sunday

......I did manage to get a couple of things done, however.  The black tank was getting close to needing a dump, and the ceiling exhaust fan in the bathroom was developing a rattle indicating it needed to be temporarily removed, and cleaned.  I had to do the same with the shower fan a year ago.  Dumping the tank was easy, but getting that motor, and fan blade out in cramped quarters was 'fun'.  If I was willing to go on the roof and tackle it from above by removing the roof vent it would have been quicker, but I was just up there on Friday working on the satellite dish.  As it turned out, once I applied the right tools to loosening the metal band which holds the motor in place things went pretty quickly.

While I worked on cleaning, and lubing the motor, as well as cleaning the fan TLE cleaned up the inside vent.  She finished a few minutes before me, so I put it all back together once again.  Up next will be to remove the vent fan over the stove, which will have to be done from the roof.


Hope you and yours had a wonderful 4th of July....we sure did.  Thanks for stopping by!
