Short Note

This is really going to be a quick post.  We returned to Fayetteville, North Carolina, today to have the fridge recall fixed.  We were told it would only take about an hour, but as we all know, it seldom happens as quickly as they predict.  Our appointment was for 1:30 and we finally left near 4:30 -- guess that's not too bad.  They also had to look at our steps.  Alan was absolutely correct when he diagnosed the step problem as the gears were stripped. 

We were told the plate with the gears would actually have to be  "made" by Kwikee -- the step manufacturer -- and would take 4-5 weeks before it would be received at the service department of Hawley's Camping Center.  We had to pay the $580 up front, but because of our extended warranty, we will be reimbursed by Hawley's when the gear plate is installed.
We are staying in the Fayetteville area until Sunday.  Our kids are driving over on Saturday and we are going to Winter Jam -- a Christian concert where we will see the Newsboys, David Crowder Band, Sidewalk Prophets, among others.  The campground we are in has I-95 to the west and railroad tracks to the east, not to mention the flight path for Ft Bragg's helicopters.  Hope we are able to get some sleep:(

My grandson, Dalton -- who will be 13 in May -- is happy he is finally taller than

A few more Spring pics:

 We will see what else we can find in the area over the next couple of days.   May God continue to watch over our family and friends, wherever they may be.


  1. Those are some huge azeleas! Very pretty. And what a grandson - very handsome lad. The concert sounds great too - bet my oldest granddaughter would really enjoy it. One word for you as you try to sleep amidst the noise of the planes, trains, and automobiles: earplugs!

  2. Glad to hear that you can put the fridge recall on your "done" list, and that you accomplished the the first "step" of your step repair. Enjoy the spring colors and have a great time with your family at the concert!

  3. Beautiful Spring pictures! Enjoy the concert, sounds great.


  4. The concert sounds very good. Love the spring flowers.
