Don’t Look Now But The Sun Is Out !!

I have no clue if the sun will stick around for the rest of the afternoon, or if the coastal marine layer will move back in blocking out the rays.  The entire coast of California from us to San Diego has been covered by what they call here the “marine layer”.  That is actually just light, high fog.  Anything can happen weather-wise in Southern California during October.  One day could be over 100F and a couple of days after that you could have this marine layer move in and cool things off.

I jumped over to see the pics Rick and Paulette posted on their blog this morning of the brand new 5th wheel they took delivery of Thursday.  Ooooh, doggies!  That is one fine RV.  As I scrolled through the blog viewing the pics, I thought I could hear Rick singing……. (to the tune of Moving-On Up from the old TV sitcom The Jeffersons)

Hey, we’re moving on up…..

   to the Big 5.

A deluxe RV is in our drive….

Yeah, we’re moving on up…..

   to the Big 5.

Can’t wait to take this beauty for a ride!  Smile

 

I could be mistaken, but I thought that was Rick’s voice I heard.  I’d be singing that way too, if that were my brand new rig.  It’s always fun to get a new RV and especially fun when you get to use it!  I don’t think that Rick will be painting a big eagle on his new rig like this motorhome is sporting.  We saw it this morning in the RV park.

We’re all hoping the sunshine will last through the weekend here in Pismo.  The 64th Annual Clam Festival kicks off tonight.  The main activities start tomorrow morning and there is going to be a parade at 10:00.  I think we’ll have to walk down and see that and then walk further to the pier area.  Street parking will be a nightmare this weekend and that is another great thing about Pismo Coast Village where we stay, we can walk to everything from here.

I don’t have much to share today.  We’ve been sitting around waiting for the sun to come out.  We have had a guy walk through out site two different times today, cutting through to his own site behind us and over a couple of places.  How rude.  I can’t figure out what is wrong with some people to have such little regard for another person’s space.  It does happen here from time to time and I hate to say it (but it’s true) it is always the weekender’s that do it.   Hellooooooo people!  Have you no courtesy for other people?

Bruce did talk to the guy across from us yesterday.  You remember….the guy with all the rugs spread out around his entire MH.  He now has a FOR SALE sign in the RV window.  If he can get a “good offer” he’s selling it to buy a 5th wheel.  He has a mobile home in Oklahoma and wants to stay there half the year and take the 5th wheel someplace and leave it for the other half the year.  The motorhome is a 2005 Fleetwood DP and I say good luck trying to sell in this present economy getting the good offer he wants to receive.  Maybe he will.  Bruce didn’t ask about all the rugs, darn it!

Hope you all have plans for a great weekend, wherever you are!  Travel safe and enjoy the view.

Until next time…..so long for now!

Why is it men forget to ask the MOST important question? Bless'm.

Arrgh.

Someone pinched our sun. Called daughter and they have had sun all morning, just a few minutes down the coast. Grrr! It.s cold here too.

Enjoy the sun while it is out, Margie and Bruce! I imagine that the Clam Festival will be a success, sun or no sun. That's what I like about Pismo Coast Village, too, its convenient location, not only to the beach, but to town.

I bet Rick will really enjoy your version of that song. You are so clever Margie. Have a great week end.

Rick and Paulette said...

Well, Margie, if I were to sing that song you probably would hear my voice all the way down there in California! My pitch is somewhere between high radio frequency and star wars warp screeching! It's a great time though, so thanks for the thinking of us!

Think I'll pass on that Eagle for the side of our new 5'er - yikes!

Whenever I come home and say I saw something, anything, for sale, Paulette always asks me "how much". Like Bruce, I usually tell Paulette "I haven't got a clue"! If I'm not interested in buying it, why would I even bother asking "how much". I'm with Bruce - why waste the time!!

Now seems to me a bad time to sell any kind of RV let alone a high end unit, unless you expect to lose you shirt.But you know who is responsible for that, have to wait for another election year I guess. You are so right about rudeness, I think I would be rude and say something like, "sir, do you realize your intruding on my privacy, Thank you" Have a great day and be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
