8-25 Projects on the Minnie

Getting Ready to Go

We're getting ready to leave on our Fall Trip and Larry wanted to do a couple of things to the Minnie before we leave. The Minnie is a house on wheels so there's always something to do. Occasionally, you have to check the seals to make sure there's no leaks and the seal hasn't come loose. Larry checked all the caulking and found there were a few places that needed attention. He removed all the old caulk, cleaned the area and then he applied new caulk in the seams. While Larry was caulking a few deer walked through the yard, what a pleasant surprise. The next project was to replace the regulator on the stove. On our spring trip the oven began taking a long time to light and sometimes it would not light unless you tapped on the regulator with a screwdriver. Larry had ordered a new one and after working on the caulking he installed it. It's great that Larry has the skills to work on the Minnie, we save a lot of money and the inconvenience of taking the Minnie to the shop.

Larry has been playing with Louise's tablet for about a week to, he has been getting it setup with the programs she wanted. He installed a couple of GPS programs and we tested them to see which one would be the easiest for Louise to use. This afternoon we loaded Flo into the car and went to Round Rock to deliver the tablet. When we got there Louise and Autumn were waiting for us. As soon as Autumn saw Flo she ran up to her to say hi. After saying hi we all went inside and Larry explained how the tablet works and how the GPS programs worked. He also showed her how to use the tablet as a book reader. After he explained the tablet he had Louise played with it to make sure she understood the tablet. She was really impressed with being able to talk to the tablet and it would answer or input whatever she said. For dinner Louise ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut. We hadn't had a Pizza Hut pizza in a long time so this was a nice change. After dinner we all said our good-byes and we started our journey back to Belton.
