That would be a great doggie deodorizer, Channing.

Morning Maggie.
Love the navy blue sox...the rose really pop! And being in the Airstream in the rain, nice and cozy, Warm sweater, hot cup of coffee, and a loving dog snuggled at your side....does it get any better?! I hope you have a good rain slicker for those outdoor tasks.

Nashville, Tennessee was my home ...left there in '70. Went west and fell in love with the mountains. Enjoy your trip...be safe. Evelyn.

I love Tennessee, and have roots here since the late 1700's.

My ancestors on my Mother's side came from NC to Grainger County, TN after the Revolutionary War, then on flatboats down the TN and MS rivers to Natchez, MS, in 1806.

The house they completed in 1818 in Southern MS is still standing, and was continuously lived in until sometime this past year.

Anyway....TN feels a bit like the home place.

Some interesting history, Maggie. These days, if a house is still standing and inhabitable after 50 years...that's considered a good thing. Makes one wonder.

It's been one of those days....

It was 19 degrees this morning, and of course there has been a lot of rain, so I found all the doors frozen shut when I went to put Lily outside first thing.

I could not get the cargo door open until the sun had been up a couple of hours...nor could I get the antennae down....did finally get the drivers side door open and went out with Lily that way....me still in pj's and robe, of course.

Bless her little heart, Lily jumped out, took care of business, and leapt back in, landing directly onto the drivers seat. What a girl

The faucet in the kitchen was acting badly, so I took the aerator thingy off, the inner workings which fell apart as I tried to clean it....sand, of course. Found a friendly hardware store that sold me the new thingy, I installed it all by myself, and I now have proper water flow.

Still cleaning winterization and bleach water out of my fresh water system, I was not interested in dumping tanks at 20 degrees, so waited til I got to the new campground. Could not get the sewer hose attached, struggling with it for several minutes....then, once attached, I found I was not quite close enough to dump.

I remember Doug cursing that attachment process more than once. You have to reach up underneath the Interstate to access the tanks, and some days it is just plain difficult to get the sewer hose attached.

Thinking I could safely just back up a little, hose attached, rather than take it off and struggle to get it back on....I could not, in fact, running the hose over and smashing it nearly flat.

I dumped anyway, holding the end in and rinsing thoroughly when I was done. It wasn't too bad.

On the upside, it was a pretty drive a bit farther south....across the Tennessee River, past the Chickamauga Battlefield....where my Confederate Army Chaplain great-grandfather...ministering to the dead and dying... found, and saved the life of, his Captain, who had been left for dead....and on into the beautiful state of Georgia.

A lovely site on a lake, we are settled in for the rest of the week, and I will have a glass of wine tonight.

And now.....a large black and white duck of some sort has attached itself to the Interstate.

First wandering around outside, coming right up to the door, now it is on the roof and walking around.

Lily is not happy.

That aerator thingy can be taken apart and cleaned but, for the cost of a new one, it's hardly worth the bother. Glad you could figger it out and fix it.

Maggie, glad you were able to deal with 'one of those days' with your usual determination and success. I would have been frustrated when the doors were frozen shut!
Maybe the duck was lonely and looking for company?
Hopefully you left the rain and cold behind. Hugs. Evelyn.

A spray bottle of rubbing alcohol and water won't freeze in most temps. When sprayed on "frozen" Windows/doors, it will lower the freezing temp Of the frozen water (ice) it contacts. A benefit is it is not likely to damage your vehicle!

Oh, also clean then spray with silicone around doors and seals.

We call them food ducks, because the ones we've run into will eat almost anything people throw their way.

Don't intentionally play golf or camp in cold weather. One day you will laugh at the frozen doors. Enjoy

This was a really...big...duck...and he walked right up to the camp host, almost wagging his tail feathers.

When it flew up onto the roof, and began web-footing around up there, I was concerned as to its intent and trying to think what I had long enough to swat at him to get him off there.

He must have found it not to his liking, as he plopped around loudly for a bit, and then left.

New sounds, for my sounds-in-the-Interstate repertoire....duck on roof, landing and taking off.


It is cold here, but not as cold as home..and they got a lot of snow right after I left, so I'm glad I got out when I did.

Not being a heat-seeker, more moderate temps and a change of scenery is my goal for winter travel.

I have a beautiful site on a lake....I like water.
