Silly Al’s and Odd Jobs

I’ve got a couple outside compartment doors that won’t stay up. George (Yates) had told me about the price he paid for new gas lift struts he got for his outside storage doors at RV Lifestyles in Quartzsite. Compared to prices I’ve seen in Canada, $13 US each is very cheap. I went in to RV Lifestyles to pick up a couple struts. I came back with 4 of them and replaced struts on 3 of our doors with one to spare. Wow, what a difference. I should have done that a long time ago. Its actually quite easy to do. Just a few minutes to change each strut.

Monday afternoon we went as a group to Silly Al’s Pizza in Quartzsite. It’s a really busy place and since they don’t accept reservations you have to get there early in order to get in without having to wait in a long line. Of course that also means that you’re eating supper fairly early. The pizza was great and fairly inexpensive. Beer was $2.50 for a draft beer and $3.25 for a glass of Chardonnay.

Tuesday morning we headed off to the dump station to dump tanks and refill water. There is always a line up to use the station but this time it was fairly short so we got that done without too much waiting. I headed in to Quartzsite after lunch to see if I could get a tilt kit for one of my solar panels to try out. They were a little more money than I had planned but I bought 1 to try. Also I needed a part for our water heater so I picked up what I needed at RV Lifestyles.

Happy Hour was a little earlier today and we had a neighbour lady stop by. She had seen Bill’s Canadian Flag flying from the flag pole on his RV. Shirley is from P.E.I. and she stayed and visited for a while.

A Paraglider buzzed around the area during Happy Hour

After supper we got together with Bill and Patsy and Rob and Pat for a game of Wizard. I hadn’t heard of this game before but we enjoyed playing. It had elements of Euchre in it with a few twists.

Weather has been very nice the last couple of days. Winds have died down quite a bit and over night temperatures have been comfortable. Glad we’re not in Ontario right now. I’ll be back with another post in a few days. Bye for now.

    It was a great day, glad you got the struts replaced and for a good price.
    Tilting the panels will make a big difference, at least we found it did on our Suite.
    Cheryl was indeed a chatterer but it was nice that she stopped by.
    The Wizard game is fun and it was a hoot playing with you guys. Never ending laughter, that’s what life is all about. 🙂
