Great Dinner With Friends, Next Day, Really Bummed


Halloween has come and gone.  The decorations at work have been put away and its back to normal.  Same old, same old stuff.  Enough said about that.



By the end of the week the weather changed to COLD, down to the 30’s at night and only to the mid 60’s during the day.  Boy, an I a wimp.  I really want to go South and get warm.  I am waiting for an appointment with HR to discuss all that there is to know about retirement and come up with a date.


Friday I tried out another Laundromat nearby.  I will probably return there next time, closer, cleaner and quieter.  

In the meantime I have set up a date to take my 5’er to Folsom Lake RV to have a Solar Installation.  I am trying to become as self sufficient as possible before I retire so that in between Workamping jobs I won’t have to overnight  in a campground if I don’t want to.



Then later I went to WinCo  to get some grocery shopping done.  I was having some friends from church for a spaghetti dinner.  Bob and Dee came by at 5:30 pm bringing the salad and bread.  We hand a wonderful meal and afterwards played a bit of Pente and then had Tea and Apple cake.  Bob will be retiring in December and he and Dee have been thinking about RVing part time.  Dee wasn’t too sure about it, but is now open to the possibility.  (she really likes my rig)   Thank you Bob and Dee for a great evening.

Here is the bummed out part of the weekend.  On my way to church, There was a bit of a metal to metal connection.  A big BOOM!   Yep.  I had an accident.  I blew it.  I wasn’t paying attention and turned left before I should have and a Chevy HHR caught the rear corner of my Pick Up.  First of all, no one was hurt, Thank God for that.  Now that’s one more thing that has to be  taken care of.

Hope fully it can be fixed soon.  I will need to tow MY SPOT on December 2nd.

I got to church a bit late, but at least I was able to drive my truck.  The other one had to be towed. 

I came home right after church and used a bit of Duct Tape to hold the  light in place, as the lights still work and it will hold it together until I can get it fixed.

I am now sitting in front of the fireplace/heater and not planning on doing anything else, but catch up on the bloggers that I follow and follow me.

Thank you all for visiting and all your support.    I hope that you all are having a great weekend and have a wonderful week to come.

  1. So sorry about the accident. But really glad nobody got hurt. About a month before we left to full time, our Monte Carlo was totaled. We were going to sell it but the insurance company paid for it instead. I would think you should be able to get repaired and out of there on time.

  2. Take a deep breath, these things happen. No one was hurt and your vehicle suffered pretty minor damage. Keep moving forward. Enjoy your blog.

  3. What a bummer! Auto accidents, even if no injuries, are still a pain to deal with. I'm glad you weren't hurt, and it looks like it isn't major damage. Soon you'll be back to normal. :)
