Whew! What a day! I'm tired! Painting is NOT good for arthritis...I can tell ya that for sure! Ackck! We started this morning off by washing the trailer off with STP, rinsing, drying, taping, and then going to breakfast! (At this point we were just already too tired to make something! LOL!)

  At 94° it has made painting a bit of a chore. We've got about half done with most of the pink painted and half of that needs a second coat. Every where you see blue, it will be painted a '50's blue. We just couldn't finish it today, it is just too hot. So, next Sunday, all the painting will be finished (I pray!)

  We've hooked up the trailer to my Trailblazer and I'm taking her in tomorrow to a local RV dealer to get 2 tire holders put on the back bumper. (I hope!) Along with filling up the propane and praying that the tanks don't leak.

  Trying to get a bit of things done while I can...time is getting near and still lots of stuff to do to get her on the road! Whew...it's hard when you only work on her one day a week and unfortunatly that's all you have time for. :0(

  But....she has been soooooo....worth every minute! She is definitely labor of love and we can't wait to "git her done!!! LOL! :0)
