Good day, Wednesday

Met Jim the buyer of my dulcimer and he paid me $15 for delivery. So my days of the dulcimer playing is gone. I'll just have to pat my foot or pick up spoons when I hear the melodic sounds of bluegrass. I just don't have rhythm for playing a musical instrument even though I love music.

Called Margie to meet her at Longhorn in Rivergate to tell her I was going to be on time. She said she was in a new to her store, Essex, that sells returns and overstocks from Target, Amazon and a few other stores. Since I was early I decided to meet her there. She was checking out but walked around the store with me. All I found was a box of filters for my Pur water pitcher at a good price. We also found a cute sewing machine that we both were going to get for $10. After looking at the boxes showing doesn't work, and broken signs we decided we really didn't need a sewing machine in our rigs. After all I now have LiquiSew that seems to be doing the job nicely.

We went to Longhorn to eat lunch and to catch up on what's been going on with us. While there, Marty Stewart, came in and sat in the booth behind us. He must eat there a lot because it's not the first time I've seen him in there with his wife. Lunch was good. Neither of us got a photo while eating and when we got to the car, Margie remembered her camera and got a shot of me standing by my car. We laughed that we are always looking for a blog moment.

Then it was time to head over to Camping World. I had decided to take my surge guard back since it had really been challenged over the past few months. I had purchased the warranty on it and thought I should get a new one before I head out again. It turned out that it was still under the 1 yr warranty and the additional 2 years wouldn't kick in until November. Wow, good for me. They didn't give me a hard time, just took the box the new one came in and took the old one and said have a nice day. What a terrific transaction.

The night before I had unhooked everything from Somewhere and opened the freezer door so it would defrost while I was gone. Sure enough it defrosted nicely so now I have a clean freezer/refrig and am ready for my new ice maker. I was tempted to walk around Cw to see if there was anything I "needed" but decided I didn't need to spend any money and I can always find something in CW if I look hard enough.

Next I head to the Cupcake Connection on 6th Ave to pick up some of their delicious cupcakes before heading back to New J'ville. They are so good and it had been about 9-10 months since I had had some.

Today, I've been cleaning windows on the inside and just general piddling around.

Congratulations on a smooth Camping World return. I, too, enjoyed our good lunch and conversation. We'll have more of those this winter. I'm not having regrets over not getting the sewing machine. I'll just get some of that LiquiSew that you use.

CW probably kept the new box to put your old one in to put back on the shelf! LOL!
