Tuesday, April 12, 2016 – 5 am is not a time I normally choose to wake up. Since that time was when I use to wake up on workdays, I choose to not wake up then in my retirement.
Monday morning Roy woke up at 4 and I woke up at 5 so we could take Dora to B&D Truck and RV Repair Service. Her dashboard air conditioner has been putting out only coolish/warmish air since we got back on the road. Roy added freon before leaving Louisiana but it didn’t do any good. We found B&D in the Marketplace in RVillage where someone else previously recommended them.
Dora arrived there a little before 7 and we picked her up around 11 am, all fixed and blowing cold air!! Yay for a wonderful RV service business!!! We have an extended care RV warranty which we’ve used a few times and covered most of this expense!
We couldn’t stay in Dora while she was being checked out and worked on so we went roaming! Almost nothing is open at 7 am so we went to Waffle House where we enjoyed Pecan Waffles for me and a whole plate of breakfast foods for Roy!
We checked out the Foley Flea Market where all we found was an awesome three wheel motorcycle Roy’s drooled over!
Roy has decided he is going to make his first pot of gumbo so we went to Walmart and bought everything he’d need to do that. I’ll be snapping photos and taking notes for a blog post devoted to this major event in our married life!! We think Wednesday will be “Gumbo Day”!
We had all sorts of things planned to do to occupy ourselves but we were told we could come pick Dora up much earlier than we thought so we’ll have to do those great things another day!
Monday’s night sleep time was over 12 hours for me trying to catch up for the previous night!
We went out for a while on Tuesday to check out Liquidator Outlet in Foley which we visited last time we were here. It’s just a huge building with discounted new stuff laying on tables.
Next on our outing was Camping World where we did some shopping and then went outside to check out some brand new small and large motor homes (Class A and Class C). Even though they were new we’re still in love with our Dora, she’s the best!
We wrapped up this fun exciting outing by checking out this monster fireworks store, Shelton Fireworks, we pass every time we go in and out of our RV park. We found out that in Alabama you can buy fireworks seven days of the week which is very different from in Louisiana. We enjoyed browsing all the different types of fireworks they offered. Check out this place!
This is a dream place for a kid to go shopping! It’s not so far away from Louisiana for folks to come over here to shop! They told us their inventory is low. During the summer the stacks of boxes will go to the ceiling. Wow!
Well that’s it for our always exciting life, this Monday and Tuesday! Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
