50 Shades of Beige

No, this isn’t an R-rated blog and there is no disclaimer for violence or strong language. Neither took place during the changing of living room walls! They say the true test of a marriage is to hang wallpaper together and I think we work together pretty well.

After procrastinating about wall covering for almost two years, we finally chose a commercial wallcovering in, of all things, stripes. I’m not sure what possessed us, since nothing is straight in a bus, but we found this striped corduroy-looking vinyl in monochromatic shades of beige. Since we have three different shades in the couch, recliner and driver and passenger seats, we thought the wallcovering pulled it together pretty well.

LeRoy has painted above the windshield and front side windows a shade to coordinate with the dash color and once the trim pieces are in place, we’ll be ready to stop. Or go, in this case!

Saturday we cleaned up the car and it became a carriage for royalty in the Friends University homecoming parade. Unlike Friday, when we actually saw snow falling for quite a while, Saturday was a crisp sunny fall day, perfect for the parade and other activities.

The young man and woman we carried were each members of the Spanish club and we enjoyed having them.

Every other year, our friends Ralph and Susie Corbet have a BIG shindig at their rural Butler county home and this was our first year to attend. Talk about a spread!

We took Ben, Bailey and Jadelyn with us to enjoy the festivities, and, of course, the food.

Jadelyn tried her hand at snagging doughnuts on the doughnut tree. That’s her in the pink and white.

We’re enjoying fall in Kansas, especially on these warmer days, but we’re still looking forward to Arizona in a few short weeks.



About 2010liberty

Retirement agrees with us! After traveling in our 40' Silver Eagle bus conversion, whose name was Liberty, since 2010, it was time for a change. Now we spend the winter in Yuma, AZ and travel during the spring, summer and fall setting the Pace!

    I just finished reading your blog. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy your travels while I work on our home in Sedgwick. Your trip to Branson ( where we live ) made me realize how much I miss it. We have been in Sedgwick for most of the past 7 months,. We go home for a week and then right back to Sedgwick to work on the 1886 2 story Victorian. Blogs like yours encourage us to keep our eyes in the dream as we slave away…………..thanks again
