Our Home @ Bong
Every time my dad would come home from a doctor’s visit his sawbones had told him his potassium was low.
It appears I may be on the same genetic adventure! So, as it happens, the doc says I too need to adjust my diet to eat more potassium.
Ok. No big deal.
Except…. when I started researching potassium and looked up the daily minimum requirements…. Yikes…. 4700 mgs a day? That seems like more milligrams than I eat in total (not really, I’m prone to exaggeration, doncha know).
So, now I have to eat with my brain as much as my tastebuds. Ok — adjustment to getting old #1 acknowledged.
A Little Rain
Being in the Midwest we are enjoying a good old Midwestern soaker. We woke to a pleasant pitter patter on the roof, and if it’s pitter pattering on the Ambassador’s roof then it’s raining reasonably hard — this coach has much better insulation than the Journey.
With a full day rain forecast today may be the day I get around to that last windshield curtain. And once that third panel’s pleats are ripped out I can iron the whole thing (Kathryn leant us her iron) and see if we can get them to hang in a more aesthetically pleasing fashion. (Turns out it wasn’t the day)
More address changes
This address change notification thing is getting to me. Now I’m waking up in the middle of the night remembering new places I need to contact that I never thought about. (including not last year when we changed temporarily to the Kid’s old address)
Yet, and all… It is annoying to wake out of a sound sleep feeling there’s something you just have to do …. I need to repost that same graphic from yesterday.
Too bad I am not sure I really subscribe to that theory!
We don’t use our iPass Account (Illinois Tollway Authority) very much anymore — I’m almost ready to delete that account except when we do come home for annual doctors visits dropping a coin from a RV window isn’t any fun! Everything seems to be getting to me (In the mail, not emotionally). I don’t think I’ve failed to receive any mail I wasn’t expecting. And I guess if I inherit a billion dollars from some long-lost relative I don’t have I may never know. Oh Well…….
While I’m on the subject, I wonder how many of you utilize electronic toll payment where you have a chance. We didn’t get into Illinois all that much even before we went mobile, and now, it’s a lot less. But there is a significant difference between the cash price and the iPass toll and I decided a long time ago to open an iPass account. When Indiana added their turnpike pass program, the iPass was compatible and it’s also compatible with EZPass. Most of the places that have toll roads we’re covered. It does not work in TX, OK, or FL but if we get out East it will be a lot easier. I’m all for easy.
I did find new wiper blades for the coach. We stopped at Camping World which is only about 20 miles from Bong. I’ve been wanting new blades ever since we got the coach and finally found the ones I wanted.
We looked at fabrics for curtains. We aren’t going to change windshield curtains right now, but we’re looking for ideas. Both for that broad expanse of windshield and for the bathroom/bedroom door and window. We aren’t in any hurry to make changes but the way we work we need to just have time to let things percolate. Besides, maybe some day we’ll be camping near a seamstress long enough to have him/her sew up a set of curtains/drapes and then we’ll know what we WANT! 🙂
We keep talking about what to do about the small sofa. I don’t mind it all that much — being sat out on one side. But it just drives Peggy bonkers. We looked at some easy chairs, but I think Peggy really wants to get a recliner. RV recliners are SO expensive, so I’ve been trying to find less expensive alternatives. She may wear me down; we’ll see.
So, it’s Thursday morning and right now there are only about 4 campsites occupied. We’ll start loading in campers tonight I’m sure. And the weekend will likely be near full again. We just about at the end of the season and campers have to get their final fix before the cold sets in. BTW — I heard adverts on the TV yesterday for Snowblowers — in early September. sigh.
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
