Wilma signed up to attend an “Oil Painting Class” which were 3 hours long each for 3 classes. She said she learned some painting terminology and technics on how to oil paint.
I am quite proud of her first painting, but of course she is her worst critic. She is very happy with the class and her painting that she has signed up for another class today, “Painting on Glass”. I’m anxiously waiting to see her new “painting on glass”!
Last week we had a slow rain for about 12 hours. It started in the late evening, lasted all night, and ended in mid morning. That morning I noticed a puddle of water on the dash of the Motorhome. The windshield is still leaking! So I ordered a roll of Black Eternabond Tape to make a final repair. I’ve been told by several RV neighbors and the manager, that in summer it rains here every day. A water leak as this, with the high heat and humidity, would start a mold colony. Something I don’t want to see next Winter when we return.
I started in the early morning, around 8am, when the temperature was a comfortable 70 F. stripping off the old calking and getting the area between the glass windshield and the fiberglass roof cap clean and ready for the tape.
By the time I got the area ready for the tape, the temperature was up to 83F. with the sun beating down on me. A perfect time to have a heat stroke! So I waited until 6pm when the temperatures were back down to the mid 70’s to apply the Tape.
I’m confident now that the windshield leak problem is now fixed once and for all. (For those who may not know, the white mesh looking fabric on the windshield is my removable sun shield that covers the entire glass windshield)
Today it’s expected to go up to 86F. Wilma’s Glass Painting class should be completed by noon. After lunch we both are planning on taking a dip in the pool, a great way to keep cool on a warm day. Ooops…sorry to my family and friends back home in Michigan who are battling the cold snow and winds.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
