I guess this is the entertainment corner:
I'll be moving it around, and will also have it up front with me when I'm driving. I tried the antenna inside the dinette area, but having the antenna outside appears to get the maximum signal, so I had to do that. Unfortunately, my sleeping loft is over the truck cab, so I had to put the antenna on top of The Palms on the roof. The antenna is a strong magnet, so that it would stick on the car/truck roof, but it won't stick to fiberglass so I had to attach it another way.
I cleaned the areas well, then put 3M SureLock on the plastic going across the roof and on the bottom of the antenna.
This SureLock is a heavy duty, indoor/outdoor Velcro type product and it looks like it is sticking well, so far. I'll keep an eye on it.
I used a couple of pieces of duct tape to anchor the "tail" of the antenna and the wire up to the plastic strip.
Then I fed the wire across the top of the water drainage strip, and down into the loft window. I stuck it down with the duct tape and shut the window.
It's nice having 3 bars on the radio, I listen to it a lot and good reception will give me a much more enjoyable listening experience.
This has been a productive day for me. After getting the antenna on the roof, I came inside and had lunch then grilled up some chicken breasts and a fish fillet for future meals. Then I made a bowl of potato salad for future meals, got the dishes done, cleaned up the kitchen and I'm done.
I've been re-arranging some of the things in The Palms the last few days. Little by little things come out and when they aren't used in a while, I find a new place to tuck them away. The old rolling home is looking pretty nice, if I do say so myself. :)
As I was finishing this up, I looked out the front window and guess what I saw walking right in front of The Palms?
I saw something white near the rear of Denise's rig and was worried it was Benny, and the coyote was heading that way. I opened my window and yelled, "Coyote!" twice. Just in case. And also for other campers in our area. It wasn't even 4:00 pm yet. Pretty early.
WELCOME to our newest Follower, jhm522000. She doesn't show any information at all, so I can't point you to a blog, but we are very happy to have you along with us on our RVing adventures, jhm522000!
Also... I have some blog housekeeping duties. I've done some digging into my recent new followers - the number keeps growing but I'm not seeing any new faces in my "members" gadget except for jhm522000. So I went back into the new followers that don't have photos and I've found some new names. Many don't have blogs shown or any other information, but for those that do, I've listed it. I hope I haven't missed anyone.
So.... a BIG (and for some, belated) Welcome to:
Jean and Skip - they do have a blog, and I've actually just met these RVers. They are friends of Denise and Benny and visited me the other day. It was great visiting with you guys! Jean and Skip live in Nanoose Bay on beautiful Vancouver Island, with their three dogs and are snowbirding here in Quartzsite. Check out their blog here.
snowbirdy has a blog called Solo snowbirds. As you can tell from the name, snowbirdy is a solo snowbird. Check out her blog, too.
Glenda Laine also has a blog, Casita Escapes. She and her partner, Jeff, have been traveling in their Casita with their dog and two cats since 2008 and have traveled to most of the states. I met Glenda and Jeff at City of Rocks when we were camping there in March of this year. (Remember the great Raven photos in the rocks in our campsite? That was a really fun place to be.)

Diana has no blog yet, but this is what her profile says, "Planning on full timing within the next year. I have no blog yet." Good luck with your plans, Diana - when you start blogging, let me know.
Welcome to you all, Katie and I appreciate you following our blog!
And now, I'm eating some cubed watermelon and watching Dr. Phil. As I said above - I'm done for the day.
From me and Katie, have a great Tuesday, everyone! :)
