What a roller coaster couple of weeks we’ve had with the new-to-us generator! After getting it all hooked up, it didn’t want to start. (Sound familiar?) New spark plugs, oil and filter later, it was coaxed to start but did not produce electricity on both legs. When we bought it, it had started and would run a small appliance. LeRoy was beginning to think that it might possibly never have worked correctly. Next step, he started looking for yet another generator, but since we had already purchased the new propane carburetor to fit this one, the next one needed to have the same style carburetor and most did not. As a last resort, he started checking from the inverter back including the transfer switch. Everything seemed to check out until at long last, he found a place with one wire missing from the circuit breaker.


Lo and behold, once that wire was attached, it all works. The air conditioner worked on the generator and we were thrilled! I am so thankful for my mechanical wizard!!

Yesterday we attended the Haysville Fall Festival, something we try to do every year if we are in town. They have a fun festival with lots of vendor booths, entertainment and food, but the main draw for us is the car show. Here are a few of my favorites.



We’re throwing in some doctor visits and a couple of medical procedures while we’re here in Kansas. I’m also trying out hearing aids to see if they will be effective for me. Their effectiveness, compared to their cost effectiveness, will be the deciding factor! You’ll hear more on this issue later!

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!
