Our friends, Joy and Robert, got permission from Tiny to move onto our old spot. They have a travel trailer and won’t be able to drive it into the spot because of the metal fence that surround's the spot.
They were supposed to be here yesterday morning.
Tiny asked me if I would remove the fence and pull the posts out of the ground. He has been good to us so I said “sure”.
Here is what it looked like when we were parked there.
In order to get a trailer in there we had to remove the two panels and related posts in front of the RV.
Pulling the Fence.
Around 10:00 Patti and I went over to the spot to start the process of removing the fence panels. They came off fairly easy just two screws in each panel and some bailing wire.
Once we got the panels removed it was time to pull the posts out of the ground.
To do this I used the farm jack and a short length of chain. As I tried to pull the metal posts, the posts would bend away from the jack instead of coming straight up.
Eventually I tried using a block of concrete for the base and that helped.
It took a while to get everything to work right but eventually the posts came out. The wooden post came out the easiest.
Here is the spot with the fence removed and ready for the trailer.
Joy and Robert arrived around 5:30 in the evening.
After a couple of attempts to park the trailer in the spot without success they just parked alongside the spot and will wait until tomorrow to try and park their rig.
I was planning to make taco's for supper and we needed some ground pork.
The general store (now called Coyote Fresh) has a good meat market so we went there first and got 3/4 of a pound of ground pork.
To make my taco’s I use the pork and mix in some Mexican sausage. It makes really good taco meat.
After the meat market we went to The Dollar General and bought a new shower curtain for the motorhome.
From the DG we went to the Road Runner for other groceries.
We made a couple more stops and then went home.
The taco’s turned out great.
Around 5:30 Joy and Robert arrived. By the time we got them settled it was 5:45 and we left to go to Becky and Dennis’ to play cards.
It was just Becky, Dennis, Lillie, and Tom and us.
We brought our Jokers Rummy game and introduced it to them. The first game was a teaching experience so it took a while. The second game they were getting the hang of it and it went a little faster.
Around 10:00, we quit playing and went home.
I think Lillie and Tom liked the game as they asked us for the art work so they could make their own rummy cards.
Okay that was our Saturday, it was a good day.
