Disney on his mind

I could bore you with our trip to Costco today but I won't.  Instead I will give you a little chuckle that I saw today.

Friends Return

Last evening we were hanging around the circle and we noticed a 5er pull in across the way.  It was Janice back from the Everglades.  She had left us a week or so ago to head south and see what was there.  We had thought about going there for a while but she said it wasn't that great.  Where they had been was about 40 miles from town and there was nothing out there.  So she came back, I think it was mostly cause she missed us. Ha Ha.   Welcome back Janice.

Fire in the Hole!!

The other day when we went to town we saw a huge plume of smoke across the lake from the marina.  When we see smoke like this it is always worry some because out here, although there is are lots of wet lands, there are also great expanses of grass lands and forests.  Some of the locals seemed to think it was a farmer burning off some of his land.  No one seemed too concerned so we went about our business.

More Power!

The two additional batteries that I bought the other day seem to be working out really well.  Instead of starting to run low on power if we watch TV until midnight, we now have lots left over. Even with only 4 solar panels, our 6 batteries are generally full by noon if the sun is shining.  So today I had to permanently mount them which meant removing the old metal tray and replacing it with a simple plywood shelf.

Who's having a Birthday??

Today was a trip to Kissimmee to get some stuff.  We had to pick up some things at the Amazon locker.  Amazon shipments are like having Christmas all over.  Today I lucked out and ended up with a pair of sandals.
