(Avon Park, FL) Hi 75 Lo 57) -- It's been a fast week but I'm not sure what we've accomplished. I played shuffleboard a couple of days, and went to handbell practice. We're still not sure when I'll be performing with the handbell choir. Since there's several of us that won't be in the area on Easter, which is April 20 this year, they may arrange for an earlier performance. We'll see what happens.
We've noticed that our hot water isn't as hot as it should be, either on electric or propane. Jim called Stewart RV, a local dealer we've used before. The only thing they could think of was both the AC and DC thermostats were bad. But while trying to remove one of the thermostats the serviceman broke the retaining shaft that sticks out from the side of the tank. He called Suburban, the manufacturer, and they said that since he can't drill a hole in the side of the heater it has to be replaced. So he'll be coming out on Saturday to install a brand new water heater for us. The good news is, our extended service plan will pay for most of it. All we have to pay is $50 deductible and $25 for the service call. And we'll have a brand new heater with a two-year warranty.
I've been working on another croched baby blanket for Project Linus. I finished it two days ago.
Today we went to see the movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. We both liked it. It's like one of the Bourne movies, or a lesser quality James Bond movie. Lots of suspense.
Tonight we're going to play cards and have a few laughs. I've been walking at least three days a week. I'm walking slower but able to go further, and I hope to continue till we leave the area.
