Sleep Number Mattress and Dinner With Laura And Lindsey

DeBary, FL.

45 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Areas of dense fog with visibility one quarter mile or less at times early in the morning...then becoming partly cloudy. Highs in the mid 70s. West winds 5 to 10 mph.

Another slow day here yesterday. Jim took CLT and headed over to Wally World yesterday morning, but they didn't have what he was looking for. On the way back here, he stopped by the CG office and found out that UPS had delivered a package that he and Linda have been waiting for.

Now, if you're like me, you're wanting to know what was in that package. : )  Well, it was a new control/pump unit for their Sleep Number mattress.

It seems that lately, it has been more and more difficult to read the numbers on the controls that you use to inflate or deflate the mattress to the desired setting. One by one, the segments of the display numbers have quit working and now on one of the controls, it's almost blank. : (

Well, Jim called Select Comfort about a week or so ago, and ordered a new one. There is a warranty on the unit, but being that the mattress was purchased way back in 2005, (two Motor Homes ago), the price was pro-rated and he had to pay about 1/2 of the cost. Jim and Linda both thought it was worth it though, because they really like the mattress and a new good mattress of any kind would cost a lot more.

So, today, I think Jim is going to change the control/pump unit. Linda wants to wash the sheets anyway, and while the sheets are off of the bed, it would be a good time to do it. 

Oh, by the way. The new control/pump unit is different from the old one. The old one had 2 controls with wires running to them from the pump unit. The new one has one wireless remote control that is used to change the settings on each side of the mattress and the pump unit is somewhat smaller.

Jim and Linda decided that they wanted to go out to eat last night, so they called Laura and Lindsey to see of they wanted to go too. Well, they did and it was decided that they would meet over at the Perkins Restaurant in Orange City around 5:00.

Jim and Linda were gone for quite awhile, so I'm pretty sure that besides having a nice meal, they sat and talked for quite awhile. : )

Did you know that January is "National Soup Month"?
