Very nice; we like the vanity plates regardless of what they say!
I think that Montana has the record for the largest variety number ... it is a law enforcement nightmare! With the smaller population here, it only takes a few weeks to receive them by mail now that they are computer generated instead of stamped.

Regarding the awning coming unsewn: I think your best bet is to take the fabric off and re-sew it. You will need upholstery thread, not your classic sewing thread. Looks like the thread rotted out on your awning, so you might look for upholstery thread that is water and sun proof.
Good luck! And be very careful taking the awning down - they are under a lot of tension and it can be very hazardous if you aren't careful.

I took a Zip Dee awning off to get re sewn. I took it to an auto upholstry shop because the Sunbrella fabric is so heavy, I doubt a home sewing machine can do it! Good luck

It doesn't fit where the old one did, so I am going to have to get creative to find a place/way to mount it so the Excella cover will still fit over the aluminum Worthington bottles.

Is that a plug-and-play replacement? No new wiring or receptacles for the bulbs? If so, that's a great find!

Yes, it was a plug and play. Just checked, I posted that almost 2 years ago and can report that none of the new LED's have failed as of today.

My purchases have been pretty high recently, but in the last week the big tickets have been:

heated water hose
Sewer solution
Champion 3100W generator

But the most useful has been the combination of little "S" hooks from Nit-ize and a boot tray. They are really handy for hanging wet stuff from the screen door, they are right over a furnace outlet, gloves and coats dry in no time!

We went to Ikea (had never been there before, we live in the hinterlands). Don't even ask, but it wasn't an inexpensive visit....

Finished sewing the curtains for the lounge (it is the perfect workstation setup! movies or music in the corner, seating for guests...)

Very cool Pharm... It's a sign or flag to put by the AS? Our friends had this wall hanging designed and etched in walnut for us... Really cool and appreciated.

Mark,
The path not taken is the one I take.
