New Tile

We were up bright and early Monday morning to get everything stowed away in preparation for the tile work. Our target was to be at the tile place by 7:00 am, and we were only a few minutes late. Daniel (the tile guy) had suggested we call Best Western to arrange for a room, but when I called I was told that they would not take us with pets unless Tiffin sent us, which was not the case as we were working with an outside contractor. The office here at the campground, however, gave us three places in town at would take us, all B & B's of some sort.

I put in a call to Grandmaw's House and explained our need and that we had a cat and small dog. Esta McKinney told us where the key would be and to come on over. When we arrived we were charmed by the house that we had all to ourselves: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, eat-in kitchen, living room, and sun room. Plus a large private yard and porch. It was simple, clean, and homey. And a bargain at just $50!

I spent the afternoon crocheting two eyeball hats for my granddaughters. I liked the way they came out.
Bob and I relaxed and enjoyed our temporary home, especially the Direct TV signal. Life's little luxuries!

This morning we went to pick up the motorhome. Unfortunately, the carpet had not arrived but the tile looked wonderful. Here are before and after tiling:

Daniel did an excellent job making the transition between the old tile and the new. I'll show another photo when the carpet is in.

We were on our way back to the campground when we got a phone call from Wanda, the scheduler. "Go right into Bay 3," she told us. We had made it to the top of the list.  So the rig went to be worked on and we took the pets into the waiting room again. 

Tomorrow morning we must be up and back in the bay by 7:00. Things are getting done!
