Texas Room, Day 3!
Today began with the building of the side walls.
First up was the south wall. It was built on the deck and when it was completed, everybody in the park came to push it up into place. It was braced and then the build on the north wall began. Once it was completed, up it went. It also was braced. Today the two side walls will go up and tie into the other walls and then the roof will get started. Hopefully once that is done, we will be working with lighter materials. It has helped that some neighbors have been around to assist. And then we also have had the naysayers who told Terry that "you can't do this, you're in violation of the covenants." Go read them, sir. He went on to say that anything we built on our lot had to be permanently attached to the motorhome. . . yeah, like that's going to happen. Well, we aren't in violation of anything and we have a building permit. Work continues.
We stopped yesterday afternoon in time to shower and go to the park dinner. This was another of our "street" dinners to raise money for the park. They are going to have to improve this one if they expect us to return. This was the ham ball dinner. Serving is from 4-6. We got there at 5 p.m. and they were already out of green beans. What's up with that? So Terry went off to get our drinks. Iced tea with NO ICE? They ran out of ice. Halfway through the dinner the ice arrived so Terry went up for a refill. . . now NO TEA? What's up with that? First you could have warm tea with no ice, then you could have ice with no tea. Poor planning on someone's part. But we did get enough to eat and we didn't have to cook, so that was good.
We were pretty tired last night and retired early. We both woke up during the night, but I still think it is better to lay in bed and rest your body even if you can't sleep. We both did go back to sleep though and are ready to go again today.
Till next time. . .
