In yesterday’s Blog entry I described helping Mary with her yard sale…something which I swore 16 years ago I would never-never do again after departing my house to begin my full-time RVing lifestyle. Due to her inexperience with such matters..she made it a two-day event. Shoulda made it a one day thing as there were few customers yesterday.

Since it was so slow activity day…I decided to work on a couple of my to-do list items. First job was to put on a new steering wheel cover on my Bronco. After 25 years the sun was finally taking its toll…

Online I found and ordered a product called Wheelskins and went to work…

The directions said installation time was about 60 minutes. That’s if you know what you’re doing. In my case…being the meticulous type…installation proved to be three hours. The instructions also indicated “Tight is Right”…so after each stitch  you must pull very heartily to end up with a tight fit. My hands are still kind of sore this morning…but I’m pleased with the results. Good for another 25 years…

The second job of my day was changing out the rear-view camera on the motorhome. The company sent me a free replacement after I advised them that out unit had moisture inside of the glass covering the lens. I blame this on poor sealant techniques at the factory…so I went ahead and applied my own sealant on top of the factory sealant.

Hopefully we’ll have no more moisture-inside-of-the-camera problems.

When we completed our day…Mary said never-never again about her yard sale. Hopefully we will never-ever do another one again!

In Never-Never Land…

October 23, 2011

In yesterday’s Blog entry I discussed finding myself involved with something I thought I would never do again…that is be involved in a garage/yard sale. 16 years ago I had several as I was clearing out of my house readying to shift gears into a full-time RVing lifestyle. At that time…I said to myself…never-never again. I guess it just goes to prove we never know from day-to-day what’s going to happen in our lives.

So yesterday…here I was…helping Mary with her yard sale…back in never-never land. I assumed the roles of a sales associate…general laborer and parking director…

I was going to sell my portable propane campfire/cooker…But Mary having never seen one before…decided she wanted to keep it for her family gatherings…

So…by the end of the day having made $96 dollars for all that work…had Mary saying…NEVER-NEVER AGAIN! From now on she said she’ll just load everything she wants to get rid of into her truck and haul it to Goodwill.

But…ahah…her ads committed her/us to a two-day yard sale. So…once again today…we will enter never-never land again. Hopefully this will be the very last time for both of us.
