The day was spent doing everything but what needs to be done. The new MH is slowly getting all of it's upgrades installed. The technician is slow and old, forgets where he puts things, bloodys his fingers, drops his tools, but does good work, and is real cheap. The reserve water expansion tank worked just as I expected, and only had a small fitting leak which I fixed quickly. (well, slowly) The alarm light is installed and the new Bilstein shock absorbers are ordered. Four days from now I will crawl around under the 'Belly of the Beast' (it really likes it) and wrench off the others (skinned knuckles?) and install the Bilsteins. Maybe the Beast will calm down to acceptable levels of great leaping bounds when it encounters wavvy sections of highway. The previous owner installed aftermarket airbags but that seems to make it a bit more bouncy. Bilsteins are the latest and greatest. (I hope) The internet is filled with good suggestions. (and bad) Phone calls to the dealers seem to help somewhat.
Yesterday we brought home a Pentax mini-digital-camera-video blah-blah-blah. My wife, who tries to read about and figure out anything, gave up on the user friendlyness of this little one. It goes back to the store tomorrow. The new Verizon phone was whipped by her in no time, one or two days. The camera? not so easily. Oh well we have not the time to watch life over again after we have lived it once. The cabinet is filled with old VHS and 8mm tapes we recorded years ago. No one seems to want to watch them.
'Well Duh! Soon the machine that is needed to view that stuff, will no longer exist. Just live life this time around and enjoy it to the fullest...AMEN.
