When I lay in bed and try to look out the window to see what the weather’s like I usually get weirded out. No, it’s not foggy out there — even if it looks like it. Because when look out that tiny window (with the shades drawn it’s tiny) all I can see is the white side of the dinette slider. So, all I see is a white blob.
I guess you could say it’s reassuring to get out of bed and realize that once more you’ve been faked out by white paint!
There are a couple other little glitches about RV living that I’ve noticed. One of them presents a question. Why do you put a rear view mirror on the dashboard of a vehicle that has no rear window? Is it a federal rule that you have to have a rear view mirror in the middle of your windshield?
When we’re on the road all I can see in my rearview mirror is some portion of the interior of Journey. It’s slightly convex — the mirror that is, not Journey, so it’s kind of a panoramic view, but it’s still more of a distraction than an aid to navigation.
And if we hear something ‘clatter’ or ‘thunk’ I would be lying if I said I didn’t do a quick turnaround peek rather than look in the mirror. This has meant that we have sworn in a new ‘Sheriff’ in town. Or maybe just a new Lieutenant. So now Peg has become our Lieutenant of Unexplained Noises .
At any rate most of the time the driver’s side window curtain is drawn across the window. We get enough light to suit us and yet people don’t look directly into the whole interior of Journey.
I guess that’s a hold over from out days in a brick & stick home. Most of our life we spent most of our inside-the-house living time on the second floor. It seems that almost every place we lived there was one or more rooms on the second floor where we spent much of our time. Consequently, we aren’t all that accustomed to sidewalk people being at eye level. Yet, we like to look OUT. A curtain across the driver’s side and an open passenger’s side window does the job.
I’m about ready to take the mirror down and store it away until the day comes that we sell Journey. NO, that does NOT mean we have any plans to replace Journey. That mirror may stay stored away for a good long time.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
