The other night my friend brought my airstream trailer to my house and parked it for me. It was almost dark when the trailer arrived. Since then I have been able to give it a good look-over and there are a lot of things to fix and replace. As I go through the rig I notice more and more things that have to be done. I found that the power cord is missing so for now I can’t use electricity and of course the house battery is long dead. A lot of the plastic handles and latches are disintegrating when touched so they will have to be replace as will a vent cover that is missing. The curtains, of course, are rotten and will have to be replaced. Some of the cabinet doors need repair or replacement and the couch will need to be reupholstered.
So the project begins and it will be interesting to see what happens when work is started and what other things will have to be repaired or replaced. I am happy that the trailer is now in my yard and I can get the renovation underway.
Here are some photos;

I have been off line for a few days. I took a trip with my friend and neighbor Diane to Ensenada MX, a very interesting trip. I just got in this evening and I’m tired my back hurts and I need an adult beverage. I will be going to bed early and will write a blog entry telling all about my trip later. Just thought I would let those inquiring minds know I’m back on line and enjoyed my trip to Ensenada and La Bufadora in Punta Banda MX.

I got up about 0530 today as it was market day and the early bird gets her worm. I was on the look-out for a couple of things for the house and if someone showed up to sell them I wanted to be there and get it before another old bird did. So I was off into the early morning cold and wind. I didn’t find everything I wanted I did find two palm trees at a reasonable price, asparagus for dinner, tomatoes to go with the asparagus and some bird seed to entice the little birdies to my yard. I had a chat with some of the folks I know there and looked at the puppies for adoption. I didn’t find a puppy I fell in love with all they had were going to be big dogs and I am looking (sort of ) for a lap dog if I get one.
I have been thinking about doing laundry; 1) I have enough for almost two loads, 2) the Laundromat is a warm place today and would be nice to sit and read while the machines thrash my clothes clean. On the other hand I would have to go out into the cold and wind again and I don’t want to do that. Maybe I’ll do the laundry tomorrow instead-what’s the rush?

Shelby my old labrador had a visit with one of the local vet’s here in San Felipe this morning. She had a large sore on her back that wasn’t healing and looking rather grim. The vet gave her an exam and said that it was a fatty tumor and it had incapsulated. She got several meds to take and a cream for me to message her wound with and then we go back for a visit on the 15th to see how this looks. If she is getting better no surgery if not she will have the tumor cut out. She is home resting after her ordeal of having this thing cleaned up and the trip to a strange vet’s office. The charge for the office visit and two medications and a shot was $90.00 U.S. payable by check or cash. Not cheap but not as much as I would have paid in the states either.
The lady who was the receptionist at the Vet’s office used to live in Nogales AZ where I worked for many years. I was in Customs and she was in Border Patrol yet our paths never crossed. We had a nice chat.
