Que Pasa

Colin took my camera in again on Monday.  When he had it apart and put it back together one tiny piece was out of place and that created the problem I had with it last weekend.  Colin also asked him to remove one more piece of dust that we found.  As I type this Colin has gone in to pick up the yet again repaired camera.  I can’t remember if I have already told you or not but I have decided to purchase a new one.  A newer model of what I already have.  Click here to see it but I will order it in the red of course :-D. Colin just got back and all is well with the camera except there is one tiny piece of dust between two pieces of glass that he can’t reach.  Colin says of that if that is the case the dust spot will probably be out of focus.  The repairman wanted no money but Colin paid him anyway.  Total repairs this winter have cost 850pesos/44.30USD/58.35CAD.  Well worth every penny to me and to you my blog readers.  I will pick up the new camera when I am in the US next month.

Erik was able to get that metal part made for the generator but that then involved something else.  Last night he discovered part of why we were having a problem “Today I started the generator and let it run and I now see why the tensioner pulley didn’t last, the pulley mount arm isn’t aligned so that kept a constant pressure on one side of the bearing causing the bearing to heat.  It won’t take much to align it, basically we just need to bend the arm slightly so I’ll make sure that happens”.   Hopefully we will be taking the RV out on Saturday to get the generator replaced.  Fingers crossed that that will go well.  You can expect are report on how it all went.

The research for our six week trip to Europe is going well.  I am at the halfway point.  It is taking several hours per day but we are still managing our beach walks.  This morning we only got 1.95 of a mile in as it was cold.  Yes nippy with a biting wind.  I had goosebumps the entire way and we turned back early.  It took both hands to keep my hat on. It was sunny then but it is now overcast and only 71F outside.

Once again those frigid temperatures in the US are making their way down here.  More snow expected in Las Vegas 8-O.  We are going down to 56F tonight.  If only the winds would stop.  Temperatures should be warming up again early next week.

At least the weather is making it easy for me to say inside and research.

Colin has been working on the RV headlights again.  Now that he has courser sand paper ( thank you Alan ) he has been able to do a better job of removing rock pits, scratches, etc that kept us from even seeing the light bulb.  It wasn’t just discoloration.

    It’s cold here in AZ also. At least the sun is shining today. Good to hear you got your camera back and are able to use it until you get your new one. Planning the trio is what I like to do.
