A Little Jury-Rigging and Denny And Bev Arrive

Thonotosassa, FL.

50 deg. clear, wind NE @ 3 mph.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 70s near the coast and in the mid 70s inland. Northeast winds 10 to 15 mph.

Since we've arrived here at Southern Aire, Jim hasn't been able to get my TV antenna booster to work, so he got out his multimeter and discovered that there was no electricity going to the switch that turns it on. He checked all the fuses and they all tested good, so yesterday morning he jury-rigged a wire going to the switch. It's now working and my TV is getting a whole bunch of channels off of my antenna. : )

There's either another fuse someplace or a wire is broken, but for now, this works. He'll keep looking for another fuse, (possibly under the dash someplace), or maybe he'll find someone who has an idea of what is wrong.

A little after noon yesterday, Jim took his bike and rode over to the site where Denny and Bev are parked when they come to Southern Aire. To Jim's surprise they were already here and Denny had their Winnebago Brave mostly set up.  Now, everyone is here except Gordy's wife, Dorthy.  : )

After talking for awhile to get caught up about their trip down here from Illinois and saying "Hi" to Bev, Jim came back here and took his nap.

Then, about 3:30 there was a knock at my door. It was Denny and he was here to say "Hi" to Linda and to talk some more. Then at 4:00 he and Jim both headed over to Gordy's for "happy hour".

Oh, I almost forgot!!!! Jim also installed that new "Family Tree Maker" program for Linda yesterday morning. Now, she has to learn how to use the program to enter all the family data that she has obtained throughout the years. She worked on it for quite awhile yesterday and she's getting it, but it'll take some time to figure everything out.

The evening was spent reading, watching the Pro-bowl and working on the computer.

Did you know that today is "Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day"?

pop!!! pop!!! pop!!!
