Mahomet, IL.

63 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast today = Sunny. Highs in the lower 80s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

I'm hopeful that tomorrow when Jim takes me to a different repair shop, they'll find out what my starter problem is. The mechanic at R & S has pretty much given up on finding the problem,  so Steve, (the shop foreman) has made an appointment for me at a place called C I T. They are more familiar with Cummins engines and the mechanical part of my chassis than R & S.

Also, the desk, file cabinet and recliner are in at Ashley Furniture and will be delivered tomorrow to R & S, where they will stay until I'm done with my appointment at C I T. Then, we'll go over there and the guys at R & S will help Jim and Linda install them inside of me.

Man!! I sure hope this all works out. Jim and Linda are running out of time to get things done before we head up to Wisconsin for the reunion, right after the 4th.

Today I think Linda is going to do a load or two of laundry in my washer/dryer, and Jim says he wants to check the air pressure in all my tires and fill them up if necessary. Other than that, probably not too much will be happening around here.

Last night, Jim and Linda decided that they just wanted to "get away" for a little while, so they took CLT and went over to Champaign, IL to a Lone Star Steakhouse where they both had a very nice meal.

Did you know that New York Sun editor Charles Dana, tired of hearing Chicagoans boast of the world's Columbian Exposition, dubbed Chicago the "Windy City?"


  1. Sometimes you just gotta go to a specialist! Here's hoping they will fix you up and you'll be on your way very soon.

  2. Keeping our fingers crossed that the new shop will cure you of your problem. Hopefully they'll have the tools and knowledge to get it done quickly (and cheaply).
