Camping Plans, a Little Progress & Sheba’s Buddy

Playing is hard work!

Playing is hard work!

I found out today that the campground we were planning to visit next week has still not reopened since the early May floods.  So I’m not sure whether we will get out next week or the following week.

In the meantime, I have just finished making my fourth interior support for the Fantastic Fan installation.  I can’t cut straight cuts with my jig saw, can’t get it to look like I want it to look, so have finally given up and will just use this one the way it is.  Tomorrow I’ll get the wiring done, then, between rains, cut the hole in the Casita’s roof and FINALLY get the thing installed–hopefully this week.

I am so afraid of this job, so have done some serious foot dragging on getting started!  I also have to cut the plastic interior surround down which involves scoring the plastic sides, cutting the corners, then breaking the plastic along the score lines.  I do hope I don’t destroy it in the process!

Today my neighbor Cindy brought her dog Chase down to play with Sheba.  Sheba loves it when Chase comes to visit.  They have a blast together.  They play until they get

In the meantime, Cindy and I get to catch up on each other’s news.

Blue Ridge Mountains in September

We’re making plans to head for the North Carolina mountains around mid-September.  It should be a little cooler then, and hopefully even cooler at the higher elevations.

We want to stay a few days at Mile High Campground on the Cherokee Indian lands, then at a National Forest campground or two to stay in budget.

I thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of Sunny, our dear little camping buddy.  He adores exploring trails and new places with us.
