Electric power off today in the campground

The owners are expanding our campground and they needed to turn the electric power off today in the upper part where I am located in order to connect a new transformer to power the new area. We were given good notice so it worked fine, for me at least. It went off about 9 and was back on before I left to come to the library to use the Internet connection, at about 14:00. It sure would be good if they would put in a cell phone tower!

Since the power was off and the water heaters for the restrooms run on electricity, I ended up going back to the rig and turning on my own water heater for my shower. That works fine and is actually easier than packing all my stuff over there but I had already done that before I learned I couldn't use the campground showers. I guess it should all be back to normal now.

I kind of keep waiting for the problems to occur. Today is Friday the 13th and it looks to me like there is a full moon as well. Surely those two in combination will lead to some sort of bad thing(s) happening. It is a good thing I am not very superstitious! I may even go on over to Laughlin, Nevada tonight (it is just across a bridge over the Colorado River) and try my luck at a slot machine. I never win much as I don't put very much to risk when doing that. The nickle slots, playing one or two nickles at a time, don't give large pay offs even if you do win. But, you also don't loose much when you are not winning which is most of the time. The casinos also have pretty good food at prices that are not too bad and maybe I'll go see a movie. I guess that might be a good way to spend a Friday night.

Hi Dick, I hope you have a wonderful weekend, you and Huggy. It is Friday the thirteenth, so double check the R.V. owners manual to make sure that bus of yours is warewolf proof, they only come out on full moon Friday the 13th. Cheers,
 
Hi Dick, Friday the 13th is supposed to be lucky isn't it? I hope so, my car which was totaled by a rear ender accident last friday was looked at by the insurance people today, so I've got my fingers crossed that it's a lucky day.

Have fun at the movies, it'll be better than the slot machines, I'm sure.

Keep smilin' Dick
