Sunday morning, Jim took Bobbie T over to the RV dealer, (LaMesa RV). Then, Jeff, (the salesman that Jim and Linda have been dealing with), brought Jim back here to the park. The reason being that last Thursday, Shane, (the service adviser) had called and told Jim that the new Travel Trailer would be ready on Monday.
So, yesterday, at 10:00, Jim and Linda took Big RED over to LaMesa RV and they fitted him with a load equalizing anti sway hitch and an electric brake controller while Jim and Linda were given a "walk through" and signed some papers to finalize the deal. While they were there, they had a free lunch, (Shepard's Pie), at the dealer's cafeteria.
About 12:30, just as they were finishing up lunch, Jeff told them that the hitch and controller had been installed, a few minor problems with the trailer corrected, and everything was ready. From LaMesa, they took the new trailer over to the Highbanks Marina & Camp Resort where Jim paid for 1 month's stay.
The trailer is now parked in Site #198, which is the same site that we have had for the last few years when we've stayed there for the winter. After getting the trailer set up and hooked to the electric to run the AC, Jim unloaded a bunch of boxes from the back of Big RED and carried them inside of the trailer so that he and Linda could start packing "stuff" into the cabinets.
They didn't get a whole lot done as both of them were pretty tired by this time, so they'll go back today, after Linda's last radiation treatment, and do some more organizing. They have a lot more stuff to move over there but once they get the necessities moved, they'll start staying overnight. :-)
As I mentioned, today Linda has her last radiation therapy treatment. Next Thursday, (the 24th), she has an appointment with Dr. Saferali (the chemo doctor), and they'll discuss when Linda will start her second series of Chemo treatments. As before, the treatments will be at 21 day intervals and there will be 3 of them.
Did you know that on this date in 1817 - The first American school for the deaf was opened in Hartford, CT?
