A Day of training and a little work on the MH


I set the alarm last night for 6:45am to wake me for a long day.  I was up it was sunny and I soon was on the road for Batavia.  I had a whole day of training ahead of me at GCC the local community college for court.  We had training on 4 separate topics and then an assessment test.  The day actually went rather quickly and we had a break for lunch and pizza was provided.  I passed the assessment so am set for another year except I need to put in a few more training hours to complete my requirement.

I headed for TOPs at the other end of Batavia to fill up the truck and gas cans as Bonnie had accumulated 80 cents a gallon off of gas by shopping at TOPs.  So I got 30 gallons (the max they allow) for $3.19 a gallon.  Yep 90 some bucks.

Then I headed over to BJ's

I wanted to look at Blu Ray players for the MH.  I found one of the latest Vizio players that should work well with our Visio TVs.  I used my amazon app on the iPhone to check the price and it was the same as the lowest price I could find so I picked it up.

When I got home I decided to use it in the house and take the smaller Vizio Blu Ray from the house out to the MH, so will do that in the morning.

Bonnie and I spent the evening to catch up on TV and then read a little before bed.


Slept good again last night and was up early.  I switched out the Blu Ray player and later will work on the MH and install the new one.  Both of the players work with Amazon Prime to play movies for free so that is a good deal.

Mid morning I headed up to court and ended up spending about 4 hours up there.  For several weeks a Robin has been building a nest on the light just outside the door.  It flies away every time you go in or out of the door.  So I thought I would hold up the phone and take a picture to see if there were any eggs in the nest.

Surprise the eggs had already hatched
It should be fun to watch them for a while.

Once home I went out to the MH and reinstalled the cabinet door.

Looks good again
 Then I installed the Blu-Ray player under the new TV.  I think I will make some kind of cover to close up most of the hole.
Bonnie went shopping after work and we did some Brats on the grill when she got home.
Thats about it for today.


Up early nice and sunny to be in the 80s today.
Enjoyed my coffee and caught up on email and blogs.
Headed up to court for some paper work and to check on the robins.

Getting Bigger already
 Once home I had a lithe lunch and then jumped on the mower and cut the back yard grass.  And hooked up some hoses and worked on the hose bibs a little.

This bush looks much better in person.
 Bonnie worked outside most of the day in the flower beds.

After that she made potato salad and then had to go into work a while with a side trip to WalMart.

The internet went out around 9pm and did not come back on till after 11 when I was in bed reading, but at least it is back on.  I spent the evening watching the NASCAR All-Star race and enjoyed that.


Sunny again and woke up to all the birds singing outside, it is to be 85 today.

Off to church which is the start of a busy day.  After church we came home to change and then off to Elizabeths for lunch.  We took a short walk to one of the ponds on the property.

Headed to the pond

A nice little pond
Then Elizabeth was off to a friends and we were headed home for a short while.  Bonnie had to go into work again to change dressings on a girl.  I watched an amazon prime free movie.  Seven Brides for Seven Brothers an oldie but I had never seen it.  Bonnie got home for a few minutes and then we headed to church.  One of the girls at church was reporting on a mission trip she made in the spring.  I ended up recording it for her mother who had to work, so right now I am waiting for it to download on to dropbox.

We got home and Bonnie has invited her sister over for supper to celebrate an upcoming birthday.
We had a good supper and strawberry shortcake for dessert.  Now a little TV and reading

Thanks for checking in.
