Signs Of Harry Potter and Mr. Fix It Comes To Call

Every now and again I have to de-web the food lockers.  When doing it a week or so ago, all of a sudden there was a swarm of spiders trying to get out as fast as they could and I got out of the way as fast as I could.   When I got to the next locker that had the ball of spiders, (now I know what to look for and not freak out) I was able to get pictures.  First one is the nest, second is of one of the spiders and third is when I disturbed them.  You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.  One of these days I’ll try to post a video of something.

Not too much has been happening here in the park.  When cleaning campsites I came across a couple of rattlesnakes.  This one was just sunning himself on one of the curbs in one of our popular sites.  I called maintenance and Jeremy and Ruben teamed up to encourge it to go elsewhere.  Since it was midweek and we weren’t busy they didn’t capture and relocate.  Then at the beginning of the weekend, I found another one in the other CG that seemed to maybe sick as it didn’t respond even though it was alive.  Jeremy came to the rescue and captured it and did relocate this one.  He thinks that since it was early in the morning, that it just hadn’t warmed up yet.  Either way I’m not messing with any snakes.

                  Thank you to the Snake Wranglers of Grant Co. Park

             These are the only reptiles that I deal with.  Frogs and Lizards.

Last week I noticed that there was something dripping from under the coach.  It seemed to be water but I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from.  We did have a bit of rain overnight, but that wasn’t it.  Jeremy, (in maintenance) came over and checked under the kitchen sink, but it was dry under there.  So we decided to wait, Ted was coming for a visit.  It took him all of 3 minutes to determine what the problem was.  Sunday we took a ride to Camping world and picked up a replacement shower faucet and some silicone  caulk at Home Depot. It turned out that it was a leaking faucet and the shower pan had a crack in it where it came together with the shower walls.  He was also able to widen a slot in the drain so that he could use a mini drain snake to clean out a bunch of “gunk” including hair from before I had the MH.  So far that seems to have solved the problem.

I’m so glad that Ted is around to help me out.  Thank You Ted!!!!

I finally broke down and turned on the AC.  I hope that you all are staying cool and enjoying the summer.  August will soon be behind us.

Thanks for visiting

IMG_0850 I got to go for a ride with Ted.  He took me to PetSmart where I got a bath and my nails clipped and ground.  He says I smell better and I feel better.  It’s so dusty riding around in Mom’s little truck.

  1. Glad Ted gets to come and visit you and is able to take care of those little problems for you. Wouldn't want to see those spiders coming at me. Take care. What are you doing with your art these days?

    1. I've only done the one watercolor. I really can't get motivated. There are these tiny face flies that keep buzzing around my head and they seem to like to get in my ears, a real pain. We haven't found anything to get rid of them.

  2. Summer is winding down fast. When do you move to Toro Park?
