Wednesday doings

Started the day at 04:30am with coffee with my bride, then Donna headed out for the truck company. Got Adam off to school and settled into the computer for some reading of blogs, About 10:00 am it was already 75 degrees and another gorgeous sunny morning, Supposed to get up to 83 today. I went out and decided to do some more trailer preparation. Fist I put the awning down to let it dry thoroughly after being rolled all winter.
Then I decided to paint the suspension and the step case where water collects and starts to rust.
This has become a yearly touch up task. But it is worth the extra effort.I also painted the pin head assembly so it would be glossy black, I think it just looks better glossy than the flat color that comes from the factory.
That was enough manual labor for today, My son Andy went out on the tractor and did some more mowing, we still have a ton of yard work to get rid of all the branches that fall and saplings that spring up.
Donna is going in to the restaurant tonight, so Sam is going to put some Cannelloni in the oven for supper. Nothing much going on Adam will be in and back out after his homework is done, on such a nice day.
Be safe out there Sam & Donna.


  1. A day of chores. No matter what we live in or where we live, that will never end. LOL

  2. haha I beat ya.. I painted the steps last weekend.

    Yesterday and today I started wiping down all the woodwork with Liquid Gold.

    But you are one step ahead of us on the awning unfurling.

  3. Nice job on touching up the trailer, Sam. I like to do that too, only I usually do it in the Fall in preparation for our trip down south.
