moved on it's way.
It was a perfect cloudy day to get our home washed. We've given Tumbleweed an occasional "spot bath," but the rainy weather has kept us from giving it a full wash. And since we were in so many trees for so long, it was time to get it done. Jim did the roof and along the top. I did the bottom. I hate getting on ladders. We're both finding that we're not as stable as we used to be climbing ladders. I'm also more afraid of heights than him.
The view to the left of our home.
The view of our host and hostess' (Jim and Judy) house. The house to the left in the distance is my sister's. (Click to make picture bigger). Notice the yard, our hosts have nine acres and it's huge to mow.
For those that are full time: Companies sell names and addresses, it's a common practice. It's been three months since we changed our address. We did it in two steps. First, we submitted a change of address form to the post office to forward our mail to my sister. Then we contacted all the friends, family, and organizations that we wanted mail from and gave them our Florida mail service address. This includes our cell phone company, satellite TV, insurance, medical companies, RV organizations, etc. So the mail we WANT is going to our mail service (we haven't received one piece of junk mail in our mail service box yet), and everything else (which consists of all junk mail) is going to my sister. We're even getting offers to join RV organizations that we already belong to! Today we asked the lady at the post office what we can do and the only answer she gave us was to submit another change of address form. However, we asked her a hypothetical question... What would happen to our mail if we submitted a change of address form to an address that doesn't exist? She said in that case it would be returned to sender or, in the case of junk mail, destroyed. Hmmm. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Do the rest of you that are full time get junk mail at your mail service? We're trying to come up with a solution. I don't want sis getting a mailbox full of stuff every month. And yes, we're on the "do not send junk mail" list.
It got to 90 degrees today, but windy and cooler by sundown. It's really neat not being under trees. The unit is a very nice 75 degrees and we're loving it here. We're glad we got the extra insulation.
Doris is a dog trainer and today she was gone the whole day. We went over to her place to watch a show that I had recorded on her TV the other night when we stayed there. It's our first time we've gone to their place with no one home, and we were concerned with how her four big dogs would "greet" us. They did just fine. She's trained them well, but I sure wouldn't go there if those dogs don't know you.
