Glad to hear that Holly is doing better. Tell her to have some extra chocolate for me from the chocolate dessert buffet night!!
Bob, coming up/down to CW anytime soon?
What a great weekend! Up at my daughters so we are with their 2 kids and we have my stepson's youngest with us. Took in the Evergreen State Fair (Monroe) parade this morning. Youngest granddaughter was in it. Great fun for a small town parade. Everything from floats, bands, drill teams, old cars and farm equipment!
Ron, need to get over there and get some the people together for coffee, I have just been swamped and with Sue not able to get around we have been pretty much trapped in the house..They may turn her loose to start trying to walk in another week.
Hobo so glad to hear the good news on Holly. She will be back to herself anytime soon.

Man,these grandkids have no sympathy or sense of timing.Collette is expecting around the end of september and so I was planning on Packwood over Labor Day,There's the key word,labor, and a solo run down to Portland to rescue my aging aunt Roma from the "home" for a week..Sure thing,that's gonna happen,not.Moved her due date up to the 10th now and ooppss,there goes the trip to Portland.Oh and now they're saying they made a mistake about both the 30th and the 10th and the baby may just come any time.Durn there goes Packwood.
Oh well,the Jeanne's kids in Kauai,with GS and GD,are planning on moving back to San Diego so it looks like there'll be some trips down there.And,I may be able to talk Jeanne into the trip to Iowa this next spring,like mid may.
Holly,hope you're feeling a lot better real soon.
Bob,mebbee,we'll have to do another Gig harbor breakfast before school.
Hey, did any of you follow the thread over on the Class A forum on waxing your rig with Red Max Pro 3? I just finished doing my motorhome as per the discussion on the forum and the ole Tradewinds looks better than it has in the last twelve years. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I was about to spend over 1k to have my decals replaced, now they look good enough I am not going to do anythign with them....
I don't know if this old guy has enuff in him to do four coats of that stuff. I just did the roof with the PW and washed the rest of it after I was done with that.That was sat and after that I put in a gate between my place and the neighbors that replaced one they put in 70 y/o.It fell off the post and the post fell over when I tried to fix it so I went and bought posts,concrete and a new metal gate.Yesterday,I was looking at it and decided the new gate looked really bad with the old fence and bought 50' of welded fence and those green metal posts and proceded to install it.Looks pretty good now.. When the neighbor came home,he thought it looked pretty good too and said that he might pay for another 100' if I put it up...He's 90 and I know he'll be out there helping...
David,there's a thread in Class A's that will give you a pretty good intro on it. There is another over in Class C-All titled "Shiny RV with Red Max Pro" and it's over 26 pages and has visual helps.
That's a really hot item now...
I guess I'll have to head over to Tradewinds and see his....I wonder how long it lasts and how much you have to do the renew it?
