It was 16 F degrees Saturday morning. Fortunately power was on and I had two heaters going. Still it was a cold night in the berth.

Blew out water from all the systems and put in the pink stuff.

Antifreeze in the Diesel auxiliary and Seafoam in the tank.

Back on the road to St Louis about 2:00.

today I'm finishing the drywall mud in the master bedroom. Had a contractor do it but he was a sloppy tradesman. Did not save money or time. Should have done it myself.

Paint today and tonite. Monday we hope to move the furniture back in.

Getting my head back on track.
Time change doesn't normally bother me, but that and working nights don't marry well I fear.
Guess it's something I have to get used to.
It never did snow last night.
Hurray! Lol

Took my aunt to a couple of appointments yesterday. She's in a lot of pain. More appointments for her today not to mention a couple for us. We're meeting with our foster daughter's worker and an adoption worker this afternoon to see what the next step is as we are working towards adopting her. Our other 2 foster children will be returning home soon. That'll leave us with 5 kids in the house ages 9-14.

Attended a Veterans Day Celebration at my nephews grade school. I have to give a hand to the teachers and kids at the school. They went all out for the 100 or so veterans that attended. We even had a couple of WW II vets in attendance as were a few Korean war vets. The school did a special thanks to all the Vietnam vets since we did not get a welcome home back in the day. Very moving for me. They served us a big breakfast before all the festivities and after the celebration in the auditorium they had us walk the halls of the school which were lined by kids and teachers chanting USA. Very nice. Then we had the option of going to the classroom of the student that invited us to give a little talk and answer questions. Overall a very nice event thanks to all the effort by the teachers and kids of Blennerhassett Elementary School. Well Done.

Started working on the RV this morning. Damn, it was cold. They say it got up to 37F today but my gauge never saw above 32F. I think I've got it all done except for hooking up the car and throwing in a few things in the morning. It's supposed to be in the mid 20s tomorrow morning. Jeez. Hope to get hooked up and outta here before 9 o'clock.

I'd love to hit the road in the rv. We're tentatively planning a 4 week trip to the east coast with our camper. And already in the distant future a smaller rv so we can travel to the east coast and down in the states.

I love RVing. My wife tolerates it but in out latest rig, she is starting to enjoy it. I started out in the hills of Scotland with a pup tent and a sleeping bag. My Lord, we've come a long way since then. I'm too old to go back to those days but I still like to get away from it all but still bring the conveniences of a modern world with me.

Getting the boat winterized. Yep, giving up on this boating season. Was hoping to dip her in the water during indian summer last month but that did not happen. 32 degrees here earlier, at least it's up to 37 now. Don't like winterizing in the cold, used to do it myself but now I pay a pro to take care of our baby.

Depending on where you are in St Louis, we got from four to eight inches of the white stuff last nite.

I spent 45 minutes getting to work today. It usually takes 15. My phone rang the whole time with workers calling in. Half the crew won't show today. So we have to makeup the time this Saturday.
