WELCOME to my new blogger friends, Kenny & Angela's Adventure http://rvlifeisgoodtoday.blogspot.com/ They have a goal towards fulltiming - I wish them luck towards that goal! I think it's a great lifestyle! They also have two big dogs that get to go along with them on their current travels, lucky dogs! And WELCOME to Cyndi & Stumpy! Stumpy is a very lucky dog that Cyndi adopted after Stumpy was in several homes, after being found as a stray starving with her mother & littermates. She appears to be a Australian Cattle Dog, or perhaps mix. Big cutie! Cyndi has a ClassC RV named Theo that she hopes to get out with soon. Cyndi & Stumpy hope to go fulltiming sometime next year, I wish the best for them as well. Cyndi is having blogger troubles, so she's in the process of moving her blog. www.rvlyeverafter.blogspot.com
Now onto Power Washing the RV:
Do you power wash or wash your RV in a different manner? I'm just wondering how most folks clean their RV's. I power washed mine once, but didn't feel comfortable with doing that. It really didn't get it clean as it still needed scrubbed with soap & I was afraid water would work it's way into crevices around windows, edges & such from the power that power washers give out. So I decided that power washing wasn't for my Ellie (RV), that I'd just continue washing her with a car wash brush on an extension pole, a bucket of water & RV wash that's specified for fiberglass washes. When I first bought her, I had no clue on how to wash her. The first few times, I used a sponge mop! That was a lot of work! Then I tried the power washing, but like I said, wasn't comfortable with that. Then I got a car wash brush & that works great! Waxing the thing is another story though - That's real work!
Today has seemed to have gone to the birds! I was busy editing a video of the house bird of my friend's Macaw, then I got a call from my friend.
My friend: Are you busy? I need bird help
My friend: I need help, a cardinal is loose in my kitchen!
Me: OK, I'll be right in!
I rushed into the house, sure enough there is a female cardinal at the screen in the kitchen window, trying to get out. My friend was trying to pop out the screen. I said, I'll get a towel. She looked at me like I was crazy. And again stated we needed to get the screen out. I said, no, let me get her with a towel. I wrapped the towel around this poor panicked bird & carried her bundled outside. My friend followed me & their cat ran away thinking, uh oh, I seem to be in trouble! Heehee, I just wanted to release the bird away from the cat! So took it over to a tree, opened the towel & the poor thing flew off immediately! My biggest fear was that it would have a heart attack, it's heart was beating so strongly & quickly! My friend asked me how I knew to do that. I told her I used to have parakeets & that's how you needed to catch them if they were out & in a panic. I'm glad all went well & that we were able to catch & release her without harm!
Now onto some bird talk - a short video of my friends Macaw, Nikki Bird, barking & saying HI!
As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbors.
