More Painting. Such Stupidity, How Do They Survive ?











Here is the passenger side unveiled from it's newspaper, and so we started on the other side.










We had enough green primer, but when we went to paint it, one big can of paint was missing. Ray and I were both sure that there was one more can, but it must have got used up, and I hadn't been able to go to any Lowes while I was at The Woodlands. We thought that it wouldn't hurt to use some other brand of white paint to cover up the green primer, and then use what we had of the Rustoleum for the top coat. It just didn't do right, and looked gritty. So in the afternoon I went into town, and got some 1000 grit and 1500 grit Wet and Dry sandpaper, so that we could smooth the surface. I could only find one can of white Rustoleum in the whole town. I don't think that is enough, so it will mean another trip to Conroe. Thank goodness gas is going down !

I received an email from the lady who bought a very large aloe plant from me, wondering where it was. I had sent it Priority last Monday, it should have been there last Wednesday. It was a beautiful plant, and one of the few large ones that Minkie hadn't chewed or broken the very full juicy medicinal leaves. Come to find out, that the lady had moved 23 miles, and had not updated her eBay and PayPal info. She said that surely they knew she had moved as it is the new address that the credit card bill goes to. Now isn't that stupid ? EBay and PayPal don't know if you have moved unless you tell them, and how would they know where the credit card bill goes ? So keep your info up to date, or this could happen to you.

I am really worried about that lovely plant, and it's five little offshoots, they won't take that kind of transit time comfortably in this heat, and I hope that they make it, when she finds them. I always include 5 little aloe plants as a bonus, as I have too many to tend to, and they all need good new homes. But I don't know if this is going to be a good home for these plants.

A frustrating hot day.

Penny can you get that kind of siding anymore. Is there a supplier that carries that for RVs? I noticed several RVs here where we are staying have that kind of siding and it needs replaceing.

Hi Speedy, I know we used to get it at Killoughs Mobile Home Supply here in Houston, but shipping would be prohibitive for you. I ran a search and came up with this:
