Groceries and Helping Denny

Thonotosassa, FL.

62 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy. Highs in the upper 70s near the coast and in the lower 80s inland. East winds around 10 mph.

Denny stopped by for awhile yesterday morning. His Winnebago Brave MH has a chassis that has air bags inside of the front coil springs and he can't air one of the bags, so he was wanting Jim to stop by later and give him a hand to try to find out what the problem was.

Since Linda and Jim had decided to go get groceries, Jim said that he'd stop by as soon as they returned, which was fine with Denny. : )

So, after Jim and Linda got back from getting groceries, (plus getting CLT a drink of 87 octane), and had most of the groceries put away, Jim go on his bike and headed over to Denny and Bev's site to help if he could.

By the time he got over there, Denny had already found out that the air bag itself was leaking and was in the process of removing it.

Now, if any of you have tried to do this, you already know that it's not an easy job. I this case, the air bag was stiffer than normal, (probably from age), and would not collapse enough to pull it out through the hole in the lower "A" frame.

So with the help of a couple vise grips, a saws-all and lots of struggling, the bag was finally chopped up enough to get it out. : (

By this time it was after 4:00 and Denny and Jim were missing "happy hour" over at Gordy's. : O  So, after cleaning up a little, they headed over there.

It was close to 5:30 by the time Jim came back here to my site, so Linda started to put dinner together. After dinner, they watched TV, read and worked/played with the computers until bedtime.

Today, I'm sure Jim will end up back at Denny and Bev's to try help Denny install that new air bag. There's not much room under the MH so he probably won't be able to do much.

He also needs to start getting me ready to travel because tomorrow, we'll be leaving here to start heading out West. 

Did you know that today is "Ice Cream For Breakfast Day" ?
