A couple of Chores

The weather continues to be very enjoyable here in Chiefland, perfect for sitting outside and relaxing.  That is about all Judy and I did most of the day Wednesday.

Judy took advantage of it not being a workday (if you can call what we are doing work) and went into town and had her nails done.  She said the salon was ok but not quite what she is used to.  I reminded her to enjoy the small town experience. I don’t know how she is going to handle getting her hair cut and styled the first time on the road.  Since she is going to get that done when we go home to vote in a couple of weeks, I may not have to deal with it here. I guess men just take things like haircuts in stride.  I was pleased with my $8.00 haircut I got last week.  I am just low maintenance.

I borrowed an eight ladder from the park maintenance shop so I could sweep of all my slide awnings. Ranger Mike even brought it over to the fiver on his gator. I must give a shout-out to all the park staff here because they all have been extremely helpful and have made us feel very welcome.

 I also used the day to use the ice maker for the first time. I was surprised when I picked the fiver up in TX last Nov to find it had an optional Ice Maker in the basement.  I read through the manual and completed the sanitation process before I made the first batch of ice.  It worked as advertised.  I filled it with 3.5 L of water and just waited. It produces ice cubes at a rate of every 9-15 minutes, depending on the size of the cubes.

That’s all for today, thanks for stopping by.

  1. We had one of those ice makers and it worked well for us too.

  2. Tell Judy I feel her pain. I am used to getting a pedicure every 2 weeks. I had the best nail place that I would go to be before we started traveling. I finally went to one last week, and they were terrific. I hope I can continue that lucky streak :)
    George wants an ice maker too. I told him to justify it ;)

    1. Laurie,
      Similar portable Ice Makers can be found around $ 120.00 at Target or on-line. For two people it is over-kill about 98% of the time. Judy likes her two small ice trays she bought at Wal-Mart for 89 cents! So unless George needs a lot of ice, I recommend the two ice trays.
