So... have you noticed everyone is starting their sentences with the word, "So..." I listen to a lot of talk radio and TV, and when people are being interviewed, that's what they do now.
So... The Mountain Bluebirds are still harassing me and Katie, but not as bad. They are still hanging out on the mirrors, hood, roof, and TV antenna and doing bird acrobatics on and off during the day. I thought about them during the storm and hoped they were dry and safe in their nest during the storm. Apparently they did fine, because they are still around. Here are more of the photos I took the other day:
Thursday I had the pleasure of meeting Andy Baird. He is also camped here at Storrie Lake and I sent him a quick e-mail and asked if he would like to come over for a visit. He dropped over, and we had a wonderful conversation. After about an hour it was lunch time, and he invited me back to his rig for a tour and lunch. Of course, I said yes. He has made so many modifications to his rig, it was nice to see them in person. I especially like his office space. Really nice.
I'm sure a lot of you know who Andy is and have read his blog - if not check it out here. Andy Baird's Websites He does all kinds of projects and documents them with instructions and photos and then posts them to pass along the information. He also has a nice file of all the New Mexico State Parks with information and his impressions of each. I use that all the time. His was one of the first blogs I read and I did lots of bookmarking and copy/pasting so I wouldn't lose the info. He does rig renovations, sews, cooks - he doesn't seem to be afraid to tackle any kind of job.
He came over today to help me do a re-repair of the outside seam split that I had fixed last year. The Silicone I used finally split apart and I needed to cover the split again. My repair lasted a year - I did it in May of 2012. Andy suggested using Eternabond to cover the split area. I happened to have some on hand, so we (he) did that repair today. He did a more extensive repair than I would have done; he has all the tools and knowledge, and I'll show you some photos in a future post.
Windy as heck here today, again, and also pretty warm. It must just be the time of year for wind in New Mexico. The park looks almost full. I can smell bar-b-que and hear kids yelling and playing - somehow everyone found out about the Memorial Weekend, I guess. :)
I've got some stuff to do, so that's it for today. But first, here are a couple of sunsets from Storrie Lake the last few days. These are what I see out the front windshield:
From me and Katie, have a great Saturday, everyone! :)
