Was up and at em at 04:30AM and had coffee with my bride, then at 05:30AM she was off to the truck company and then the restaurant.
Rigg’s and I took another nap together, but by 07:00AM he was ready to go outside and then have some food in his dish.
Later in the morning I made a run to Walmart to pick up another 25 foot section of sewer hose for the fiver. I found a pin hole leak in our old one and I changed it at the last campground but it was only a 10 foot section. That was long enough for that campground but most places like the lake you need more than 10 feet.
I then went to the RV dealer and picked up a latch to hold my one cargo door that broke, and a replacement plastic plug for my Atwater water heater which has a drip no matter how tight it is. They both come on a card with two pieces so I will have a spare of both.
I saw a gem of a helicopter that I didn’t know about just about in my own backyard, at the VFW in Wentzville on Hwy Z they have a Huey Cobra,so I stopped and got a couple of pictures of it.
AH-1 Huey Cobra
Nose Mini Gatling guns.
2 3/4 in unguided rocket launcher.
As an old rotorhead I never tire of finding these old war horses, this one is pretty much armed like a Viet Nam era ship except for the exhaust deflector, which was a later addition after the war. I can only wonder the stories this baby could tell. Do I miss my old Navy flying days, Sure, but I had a lot of good days compared to bad in 30plus years of law Enforcement. So far it’s been a wonderful Life.
Donna and I have been thinking of joining the Escapees and going to their Rally in Sedalia MO this fall. If anyone has any comments on this let us know, Last Rally we went to was the State Good Sam Rally for MO. It was not a pleasant experience except for Rigg’s getting first prize in the dog contest, even then some woman told us he shouldn’t have won because he was to big for an RV. The thing we noticed was that nobody seemed to welcome the newcomers and they stuck to their own groups and cliques, I hope that isn’t the same for the Escapees, I for one enjoy a nice relaxing Happy Hour and sitting around a campfire. Even at the Lake without a rally you can always find a partner to sit with a spell and maybe have a cold one. Anyway were open for suggestions and comments.
Haven’t heard from Adam this weekend and Nicole is going to her Dad’s so it will be a quiet weekend at the Weeb Ranch. But Sunday is Mothers Day so I will attempt to get Donna out for a nice dinner, maybe even the Olive Garden.
Hope everyone has a good weekend and Be safe out there. Sam & Donna….
