Boys Just Wanta Have Fun

Apache Junction, AZ  High 91  Low 63

Or how many guys does it take to change a light bulb?

It takes two to change a light bulb!

Another issue Jan and Bill have with their new rig was the lack of LED lights. The bulbs and light covers that were in the rig weren’t working and when Jim got one of them down we could see that the heat from the bulbs had started to turn the plastic brown. Not a good thing.

Over to the RV store here in AJ and lots of money later, they have new LED lights and covers. So now Jan doesn’t have to take her shower in the dark.

Also got their generator running. It’s amazing how a loose screw and a clogged needle valve (whatever that is) can mess things up. They are making their plans for Quartsite.

Had hamburgers on the grill last night with carrot cake for dessert. This morning we headed to Dollar Tree for a few odds and ends and then to the Mesa Swap Meet. Jim found some socks and that was the extent of all our purchases. I just get so tired of looking at all the STUFF they have. Talk about overload. And it was hot so we didn’t stay very long.

Took it easy this afternoon and then had chicken with baked potatoes and green beans with carrot cake for dessert.


Monday morning – Jan and Bill have to leave today to head down to Casa Grande. Jan’s Dad is excited that they are going to be back to keep him company for awhile. We sure are going to miss them. I’m sure we’ll see them again in the not too far distant future.


Jim made sausage and egg McDixon’s for them for breakfast to help them on their way. Bill had cheese on his.


Thanks for a wonderful time you guys. Travel safe.


  1. Sounds like you guys had a great time, always sad to say so long.

  2. Yes, i discovered those swap meets in the South have LOTS of 'stuff'!! ad go on forever... and definately overload!

  3. McDixons - how cute. I make them too but never thought of wrapping them in tin foil, labeling them and presenting them. So cute.

  4. Sounds like you should think about starting a mobile RV repair service:)

  5. It would be worth visiting you guys just to get a breakfast send off! :)

  6. WOW...we never got a McDixon. What are we chopped liver?

  7. Thanks again for all the help and a great visit. I'll have withdrawals tomorrow without my McDixon. I'm actually on Bill's machine.

  8. It's always nice to have an extra set of hands to help with all the fix-it jobs.

  9. Maybe I had better get a list started of stuff to fix... Seeing as how you guys are all bored and things....

  10. You never answered how many?...

    McDixon's sound wonderful but I want the carrot cake ..,

  11. That loose screw was on the generator, right??? ;c)

  12. But that's the kind of "fun" that pays off. Getting that generator running was probably a few hundred bucks right there. More than paid for the crazy expensive LED lights.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
