Dare I admit it?

What is it?

I really don't want to tell you but those are mushrooms growing in the living carpet in our RV!!  Honestly~!

Can you imagine what I thought when I saw them?  Colin initially laughed but got more serious when he realized that they just keep coming.  In the middle of our 20 days with no power we noticed a wet spot in that part of the carpet.  At first we thought it was from all the rain….but no, we had a very very very tiny minuscule leak from the kitchen tap connection.  Colin dried it up as best we could, of course we had no extra electricity to put a fan on the area and we thought it was dry.  Not!!  Okay that makes three, after the inverter problem and propane problem.  We are done.  Well not really, as I have to see how we are going to get this mess cleaned up.

Meanwhile I have purchased a first class ticket from all my extra income, for Mr. Murphy, from here to the North Pole!!  I hope he freezes up there and doesn't come back to bug anyone else!  Murphy's Law!! Ha!

It was a horrid miserable wet weekend, lots of floods and disasters here in the Okanagan. Fortunately our lake is still going down drop by drop.

I even managed to catch a double rainbow between storms.

    Great rainbow picture. Don’t know what to say about the mushrooms. I would have thought mildew and mold would have been the result.

    Wow, and we are sweltering-both at home and here in Salt Lake City!

    Neglected to mention the wildfires-one grew from 400 acres yesterday to 3000 today, Montana is on fire.

    Wildlife or crops in the living area never seems to work out. Maybe some herbs in a pot or such. Longdogs excepted of course.

    The weather HAS to dry out. I mean, aren’t in the Okanagan? Maybe I’m mixed up. Wouldn’t be a stretch. I always thought it was semi-arid.

    This too shall pass.

    *D’oh*. Stick a “you” in there somewhere appropriate. *mumble*

  12. What a thrifty idea! And, they camouflage nicely. Well done!

      Bob….please let it pass quickly……the entire Okanagan is suffering financially because of the weather.
