Time Event
Preparing for Departure
We went to Reno this morning with our hearts set on brunch at the Atlantis. This was made easier by the affinity club kicking out another two-for-one breakfast/lunch coupon. Although we were technically too late for breakfast, we were in the transition between breakfast and lunch and therefore able to get our eggs, bacon, and other breakfast stuff besides the beginning of lunch.

As usual, I marked a keno ticket. Alas, I didn't check the ticket the runner brought back to me that closely. Had I got the ticket I wanted, I would have won a few dollars, but because he couldn't read my handwriting, I got something different that won $1 on a $10 ticket. My fault; the rules clearly state that you need to check the ticket, and the runner even warned me that he'd had trouble with my ticket. I'll check more closely next time.

Reno RoutineCollapse )

As we drove home around 3 PM, we had the San Francisco Giants-Washington Nationals baseball playoff game on the radio. As I compose this message around 8:45 PM, the game is still going. Yeow!

Current Mood: accomplished
Last Evening Repairs
When we got home from Reno this afternoon, Lisa used the one thing we were able to get from Safari RV (a switch) to finish fixing a light fixture she'd replaced last week. The original fixture had broken off in my hand on my last stay in the Bay, and we were unable to match it, so Lisa replaced the entire fixture, including replacing its twin on the other end of the couch so they'd match. This had also required buying some small wooden pieces (they probably are meant to be trophy bases) and staining them to serve as bases for the new fixtures as the only way Lisa could figure out how to adapt the new lights to the old wall studs.

More RV NeeperyCollapse )

During the past week, Lisa also worked on two different stains I'd managed to put in the RV's carpet: one where I spilled power-steering fluid during the adventures with leaking pumps, and one, more serious, where I spilled a Pumpkin Spice Latte on the way out of Grass Valley on the way home; that stuff stains carpet rather annoyingly. With a lot of carpet cleaner and scrubbing, she managed to get most of the stains out.

I'm grateful to Lisa for cleaning and repairing the Rolling Stone for my next trip to the Bay Area. I'm only down there a week this time. Lisa's work does make the RV more comfortable for me to use.
