It's a knob in the middle of the slider on the screen door - for those of you who don't have an RV screen door, you have to slide the door to the left to access the locks and handle on the actual motor home door, so every time I go in or out the door, I need to slide this piece. If The Palms isn't completely level, it takes two hands to open the slider, and with this knob I can open it with one hand when needed. It's a lot easier.
First Denise charged up her drill and drilled a hole in the center of the slider.
Then she hacksawed off the end of the screw that came with the knob - it was made to fit through a wood kitchen cabinet and this is a thin piece of plastic. She actually had to do this twice because the first time I had the wrong length. :(
Then we screwed it in and I have a nice knob on the door - I'm going to look as I travel for a really cute decorative knob, though. This was the nicest one I could get at Wal-Mart that wasn't metal or plain round white. I want a fancy knob. Pretty nice, huh? I love it. :)
Thanks, Denise, for the idea and also for drilling the hole and trimming the screw. I love my new screen door knob! :)
Below is Katie on one of our walks. This is what she looks like when she gets a goathead sticker in her paw. She just stands there with her foot raised until I take it out. Poor baby!
Katie tried to get into Denise's rig every time the door opened. Last year we sat inside visiting and Katie saw all Benny's toys and chew toys - and Denise gave her one. These little guys have memories like elephants!
|Where's all the toys?|
I can't help trying to get photos of butterflies when they come by. This year it seems like there are lots more butterflies. This was a pretty one.
ALFA antenna made while I was at Leasburg. The bars on top show the free wi-fi with my old antenna system - two bars and I couldn't get it to "hold." It kept dropping me and I wasn't able to get onto the park's free wi-fi:
The lower reading on Wi-Fi 2 with the ALFA Antenna was five bars, and continually 4 to 5 bars while I was there. I got a ton of downloading done, and hardly used my own Verizon data at all. Denise tried my system, and even though she got the same readings, she wasn't able to connect. I don't know why not, it was frustrating. But I couldn't have been happier, and I'm having the same experience here at our new location.
We left Leasburg on Saturday, late morning and spent the night in Lordsburg at the Flying J/Denny's along I-10. It's always nice to be on the road again.
From me and Katie, have a great Monday, everyone! :)
