Since I last wrote we have visited our friends Dave and Marlene Paumen in Birmingham and my cousins Faye and Bob in Advance, NC. On the way to NC, we were able to enjoy a few days watching our friend Tracy Hanson play in an LPGA tournament in Atlanta, GA.
We are learning how to flex when your "home" is broken. This past couple of weeks have been a form of déjà vu. We are in Gastonia, NC as we were last year at this time. First our hot water heater went kaput. Glen drove to a shop in Charlotte to have the water heater replaced. He drove back to Gastonia and then discovered the new heater was not working properly. So.....he drove back to Charlotte where the heater was quickly installed correctly. On the way back to Gastonia, a tire blew. The rubber fragment ruptured the gray water tank. So....now we are waiting for the new tank to arrive from California so that it can be replaced at the same shop that repaired the RV last year. The same insurance adjuster came to call on us and assess the damage. I am determined the similarities to last year's trip will end right there, and I have no intention to have a return hospital visit.
We have had to rearrange our schedule, but still plan to attend the Heavilin reunion in Edwardsburg, Michigan over Memorial Day weekend. We may be without our house on wheels, but will drive our car and stay in a motel if we have to.
We are truly enjoying our stay in Gastonia and our visit with John and Rose Stanley. We traveled to Murphy, NC with them last weekend.
