Maggie,
For your gasket, search for this on Amazon:
Camco 39834 Sewer Hose Replacement Gasket - Pack of 4



Less than $7. They should ship to wherever you are. I have kept them hot with parts for my new trailer.


Al

Thanks, Al & Missy....going to make a run in the morning to the WalMart supercenter up toward Myrtle Beach....one of those so enormous you almost need roller skates... and if they don't have it I will order it and have it shipped to Edisto....tho I'm going to have to dump again this weekend, and really need something before that.

I can alway MacGyver it in some way, if nothing is available in these immediate parts, as at least I now know what the problem is.

Thanks for the book recommendation, Vince. Looking that book up, I believe I have read that one.

That is a favorite time period of mine....both of my maternal grandparents serving in WWI...he a surgeon, she a nurse, they met in medical personnel boot camp and married after the War.

There is a new series on PBS, Mercy Street, which I have seen a couple of times. It is on at 10pm out here, which is late for me , but I have caught it enough times to know that it interests me. There will always be reruns.

Set during the Civil War, in a southern Hotel commandeered by Union forces to serve as a hospital. Not as riveting as Downton Abbey , but the setting is compelling to me, having lost many ancestors on those battlefields or in hospitals such as this one.

It seems to have been well researched, as to detail, right down to the most common treatment of injured limbs being....amputation.

I see the Chaplains, ministering to the dead and dying, and think of my great-grandfather, who was a minister before and after the war, and Chaplain during it.

It is going to be one of those days....raining again, Lily sleeping peacefully on the couch.

Reading a news article about the recent death of 93 year old Samuel Willenberg...the last survivor of the very few from the Treblinka concentration camp....and how the deaths of camps survivors will eventually leave no one left alive to tell the stories like only someone who has been there can.

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...MPLATE=DEFAULT

"a looming transition in the field of Holocaust commemoration, as historians and educators prepare for a world without survivors and the challenge of maintaining the memory of the Nazi genocide without the aid of those who witnessed it."

May we never forget.

Amen. My mother was stuck in Austria during the war. She has a Topaz hand made ring that a jeweler made for her as a present just before my grandfather smuggled the man and his family out of the county to avoid the camps.

She has some scary stories about that period in Vienna. She was under the Allied bombings of that city, and left just before the Russian army invaded....

Scary times.

Watching and reading the news this morning, there seems to be at least one mass shooting every single day ..... sleeper terrorists, Uber drivers, for Pete's sake...personal, murder/suicides, whole families at a time.

Such...insanity...how can it be predicted, and stopped.....it simply can't. So many people are silent running out there, provoked unpredictably to senseless murder by who only knows what.

It just...makes...me...sick, and I don't believe names and photos all over the television help the situation. There...I said it.


Post rain, Lily had another wild beach romp yesterday, and was a pooped pup last evening...and, still. A good thing.

Looking at Newfoundland.....it is really far. Too far. Could probably do Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and get a similar experience, I suspect... plus drive the entire trip, sans ferries.

Going in search of gaskets this morning....and, still, Riesling.

Remembered that I bought several years ago a PlatyPreserve wine preservation system, which Doug & I used successfully several times, and located it stuck away in a cupboard.

Eliminates a) chilling a bottle of wine in my tiny frig, and b) keeping the remainder, when I am a one glass at a time girl.

Ta daaaa!

Walmart carries packages of Camco replacement gaskets, 2 of each size for the bargain price of $2.97.

I should have a leak-free dump on Saturday.

And....I just opened a bottle of wine, all by myself, and poured it into the Platypus.

I cannot remember the last time I did the corkscrew thing.

Ahhh, life.

I use one of those easy types of cork opener, that uses a sort of clamp and lift lever...bought at Tuesday morning. A lot easier than struggle with a cork screw. I have seen those gadgets that pump the air out of a wine bottle, didn't get it...I should.


Glad you found the gasket thingy. You are just getting soooo handy! Good for you.

I agree with you Maggie. I wish they would not blast their photos on TV...I think some of the sickos want that type of recognition. It makes no sense...I can't understand what switch clicks in a depraved mind that says...I think I'll go shoot a bunch of strangers today! It happens so often. So sad.

I have just a basic, multi purpose corkscrew thingie out here.....has a bottle opener, a small knife, and the screw piece.

Should perhaps get something better if I am going to be opening bottles of wine on a regular basis , as I do think the Platypus is the way to go out here....it holds an entire bottle, air removed, squishing nicely into empty spaces in the little frig.

We went to Newfoundland last summer. The scenery is beautiful and the people are the bast I have ever encountered. If you are interested in any info, just holler.

Thanks.

The distance is a bit intimidating, but we'll see.
