Mouse Update: I’d like to thank everyone who left comments and/or offered tips on Facebook regarding catching Mr. Mouse. I am happy to report we won the war…finally. In the end, we chose not to use the glue traps. I had read a few reviews that said they could get out of them and I had visions of Mr. Mouse getting sticky stuff all over our stuff. Every kind of bait we tried was successful. The problem was he could get it out without setting off the trap. So, I finally came up with a solution. I took a small piece of hotdog and using some thin florist wire, wired the hot dog to the bait tray. He’d at least have to tug to remove it. It worked like a charm. We celebrated. And we slept like babies that night :)
Recently, I read a remark about how it’s “always something” when you live a mobile lifestyle. I have to agree. Case in point: see what happens when you forget to crank down your antenna before leaving the campground which has a tree canopy covering the drive?
We heard the snap and we both knew immediately what we had done. Once we were on flat, clear ground again, Rick climbed on the roof and dismantled what was left so we didn’t do more damage having it fly off and hit someone.
We were traveling to Richmond IN to visit our friends Wanda and Darrell who kindly offered us their driveway for a few days. After the antenna mishap, we were sure ready for Happy Hour when we arrived! :)
But before Happy Hour, Rick and Darrell took off for the local RV dealership and purchased a new replacement antenna. He got the last one. Maybe we’re not the only absent minded travelers?
In the next couple days, he succeeded in replacing the antenna and installing a new amplified wall plate.
Now we’re back in business :)
Saturday, we drove to Morristown, IN to meet Rick’s sister Louise and her husband Glenn for lunch at the Kopper Kettle Restaurant.
Our table was so large that I had to splice a picture together of the two of them :)
Before we knew it, 3 hours had passed and it was time to go our separate ways. Thanks, you two, for meeting us. We had a great time and we’ll do it again next time we’re through :)
Our time here in Richmond is going by quickly. Wanda and I did some shopping and sight-seeing this afternoon while the guys stayed home and did whatever it is guys do :)
Tomorrow Wanda and I are making a run to Costco in Indianapolis and again, the guys will do their own thing. I heard something about washing cars…or something like that :) I promised we’d bring back one of those fabulous Costco roasted chickens for dinner.
The hard part will be driving back 80 miles and smelling that thing the whole way! YUM!
We leave here Wednesday morning and continue our trek north. Thank you in advance for your wonderful hospitality, Wanda and Darrell! I’m positive this is the best campground in the area :) We’ve had a great time.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! Hope your day was wonderful.
Thanks for stopping by.
