A Warm Time in Perfect

Now, that's what I'm talkin' about!

Second day in a row: 85o! And as well, it is the third day of the last four above eighty.
Makes me glad to be back in Perfect. I mean, that is perfect.

I got out Wednesday morning and scrubbed the roof of the RV. No big deal, you say. But to this rickety-kneed old man working eleven feet above the pavement, slicky, soapy water under his feet, well, there was a certain element of excitement-- or trepidation. But, safely on ground level again, job done. Then it was the awning, and this time a ladder. But it's over and I am safe and as sound as I was before the job began.

Now the rest of the exterior. But that is Thursday's job. Will no doubt get that done just in time for the rain. But not to worry-- the interior hasn't been thoroughly cleaned since returning from the South; and that is work that can be done while the rain patters on the roof.

All has to be done, though, because our summer camping season starts in ten days!

What ever made me think...

Someone is just like his dad. What ever happened to hiring HS kids and letting them earn a little spending money.

Rain, graupel, and snow here yesterday. Not perfect!

Hooray for 80+ degrees!

Vee, whatever happened to high school kids who would do chores, even for money? Besides, Dad was well past eighty the last time I caught him on the roof.
Thanks for the vocab lesson. Had to go to the dictionary on that one.

Jim, isn't it great!

Is your best gal ready for camping already??? Wow!!! :)

It was hot here too--almost too hot. I mean, air conditioning in May????! Yikes. Tonight we are freezing again. Sigh.

Love the blast from the past, V.
Shoo-doggy! 85? That was our humidity count these past 3 days. We reached unusually high 99s/100s.

Welllll, the heat got me! The hair came off, but will only trim now until next spring ... so it'll get long(er).

Have a great weekend ~
