Non-Eventful Day

Slept in this morning while Sandy was up early as she thought surely they would get to mow today.  Her brother called about 7:45am and said the TXDOT guy called and said give it one more day. Sooo they will try again tomorrow morning. The day started out cool but as it progressed we were using the AC in the Jeep. We drove to Mount Pleasant to our bank and then swung down to Longview for some shopping. I was wanting a gas leaf blower as the electric leaf blower limits my usage according to my extension cord length. With fall upon us the leaves are falling everywhere and its becoming to big of chore for me to rake them. My sweetie who has always helped me  rake has a real job now and won’t be by my side.
Lowes and Home Depot both had limited inventory to look at. I could not decide between a Poulan or Weed Eater brand. Of course there are the Stihl and Echo leaf blowers which are very nice but they are above my budget. Will go on line to see what I can find and learn.

I read on Karen’s and Steve's journal at Rv’ing:Small House…Big Backyard where they rated a ThermaCell mosquitoe repellent which is hand held or set next to you that would repel mosquitoes within a 15ft diameter.  I purchased one at Wally World and guess what it works!

I don't know if you have ever seen the “As seen on TV” Handy Switch that allows you to do the following:

Tired of fumbling around in the dark?
Too lazy to get out of bed to turn the lights off?
Handy Switch is the amazing remote control light switch that turns on any lamp in any room!
Easy to install, no tools, no wiring, no mess! You simply plug the receiver into an outlet, and then plug your lamp into the receiver. That's it!
Each switch comes with a special adhesive that lets you stick your Handy Switch to any surface, then remove and re-use in any location you choose.

Well we use one for our table lamp in the MH

(Also when we go some where and know it will be dark when we get back I remove the switch from the mounting plate and set it on our dash. When we come back and rather than fumbling in the dark i reach over and turn on the table lamp).

Until next time….MtnAire Travlers.

  1. OK Sherri says you have replaced Sandy with a leaf blower. And you don't even have to get up to turn the lights off...Man have you got it made.
