Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch Blog for February 12, 2016

Friday, February 12, 2016, 1915 Hrs., 55 degrees, clear sky.

Good evening!

Yesterday I spent most of the day to reorganizing both the trailer and Astro van so the van will have more space to put in more books from the storage when Beth can bring them down here. Here’s the picture:



After I managed to pull out 4 eBay orders, as I trying to print out the shipping labels and found out that black ink has run out again, all that less than 2 week!! YIKES!!!

We are still seeking any donor who would give us storage shed ( minimum 10’ X 10’), if you know anyone who would donate and deliver it to us, please contact Beth at 714 699-3323. We need a storage shed as fast as possible!

Beth told me to try to get the ink refills kits, but I doubt it it would work because each cartridge have green memory chip in it. If I refill it, it may still have memory stating “empty” and not going to work.

Anyway, Both yesterday and today weather has been really nice here, very warm in the afternoon and nice cool at night time like 50 degrees.

Today, I had to go to the town to drop off the packages from eBay then to Wal-Mart to get another ink and 2 bottles of waters and come back here. No one hasn’t given me a ride to and back at all. I left here about 8:45 this morning and finally came back here about 4:10 pm this afternoon, yes, very long hours of walking both ways. Now my back is really bugging me, jeez!

Anyway, Last night I put in the small pile of tumbleweeds far from here, about 30 yards southeast from our RV. Here’s the picture I took with zoomed in:



Tomorrow I need to pull out 2 more orders, pack it and take to the post office. Hopefully I can get a ride to and back!

Just hopefully Beth will bring the remaining books crate I left in Garden Grove storage and BBQ pit with propane tanks. I miss eating chicken, steak and my favorite - hamburger!

Yes, I want to finish off to adding books in eBay!

I know there is one full & one half full propane tank, Beth can tell by lifting and checking the weight. If it is heavy, then it full, she can tell between full and empty. So I need this! I know we have 4 or 5 propane tanks in the storage, if Beth want to, then she can exchange it all or one at a time, it only cost $19.95, plus tax. Your cash donation would help!

Well that’s about it for the night.

Have a great weekend!

Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch Blog for February 10th, 2016

Wednesday, February 10, 2016, 1915 hrs., 53 degree, clear sky, slightly wind.

Good evening!

Today is “a-okay” for me, but my cold “flu” is still stuck with me. I have to walk into the town until a good person with a Mercedes Benz gave me a ride to Wal-Mart halfway there, so I can get cat food (Only 4 lbs this time because it is hard for me to walk back with another 16 pounds bag), litter clay (4 pounds), 2 bottles of water and a soda and came back to the land with a ride again. I didn’t go to the post office today, because I just wanted to go Wal-Mart and come right back here and relax, napping for a while which I did. I don’t know why I am still “so” tired right now.

I can’t believes that 25 pounds bag of cat food were gone in less than 2 month, normally it should last 3 ½ months.

I have been hearing some “boomings” around that the U.S. Air Force practicing dropping 100 lbs of bombs.

Anyway, the weather is very nice today, around 70’s degrees, but hot in the RV. So I had to put a fan in the RV, but Solar Panel Battery doesn't work on the fan, however, the Astro van with engine running, works fine on the low setting for an hour and half, Medium or high setting does trip the red inverter. I also did crack some windows open for a while. I mentioned before I need a bigger and better battery for the solar panel. Oh well. Here’s the picture of the fan I took:

The Fam
Anyway, I noticed that Beth mentioned in her last video, hopefully we can get another camper or RV that’s better.
Pile of laminated wood

Few weeks ago, I mentioned in the blog about the laminated wood that I pulled out of the RV storage compartments. I fell it is an “eyesore” for me to leave it there for no reason. Here’s the picture:

I need to ask Beth if she would let me to burn it away from the RV in our land property, I found 5 different spots that I can choose from to burn it which it way away from the RV, van and trailer. I only will burn it when there is no strong wind one day. That way the “eyesore” will be gone!

So anyway since I am less emotionally, hopefully tomorrow morning, I can start pull out 2 eBay orders and get it ready to go to the Post Office and hopefully I can get back here fast as I could so I can start reorganizing between Astro van and trailer and start a video or two.

Well that’s about it for today.

Have a great day!

Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch Blog for February 8th, 2016

Monday, February 8, 2016 1730 Hrs., 68°, clear skies and windy.

Good evening once again!

Over this past weekend I came down with a cold and my nose running all the time and had to blow my nose. DANG!!

For the past 3 nights a row, weather is so nice to me while I sleep, not too cold and not to warm, “just right” for me to sleep better, I didn’t have to bundles up too hard this time. Hopefully there will be no more “hard cold” for a while!

Today, the weather been windy all day and I saw some tumbleweeds rolling away across our land. It is fun to watch them.

Anyway, I just ran out of water here and it’s going to be hard for me to carry water around, but I think I can manage to get some.

I also pulled out 1 eBay order this morning, packed and labeled it and it’s ready to go for tomorrow again, ugh! We also sold APH Bookport for the blind. I know Beth has it as I left it in Orange County for Beth after we loaded up our trailer before I left Orange County. I have emailed to Beth about this and she hasn’t responded yet or “Marked Shipped” from the eBay. Hmmm.

After that, I finally cleaned the dishes and cleaned up here in this RV.

Tomorrow, hopefully the winds die down so I can go to the HQ Post Office to drop off the package, get one gallon of water and return back here. Yes, it is takes time for me to go and return, more like 4 to 6 hours. Yikes! I still have bit of sore right hip from the fall I had 2 weeks ago.

Well, that’s just about it for now until tomorrow. Have a great day! KMG-365!

Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch Blog for February 4th, 2016

Thursday, February 4, 2016, 1950 Hrs., 43 Degrees, clear sky and light wind.

Good evening,

This morning when I woke up, my stomach was in so much pain, an hour later, I was very sick and do not know why. Yuck!

So I stay in bed most of the day today until 2:30 pm when I was feeling better but still feeling nauseous and I couldn’t eat or drink at all today.

I managed to pull out two eBay Orders, packed and labeled the shipping on the packages.

At about 3:30 pm, my new friend, who is willing to speak his friend about fixing the car contacted me that he won’t make it to meet me today because he has had last minute things come up on him and he will see me tomorrow or Saturday to talk about getting it fixed.

So at 5:00 pm I started up the campfire and enjoyed it until now.

Sorry, I couldn’t do much today due to illnesses which it makes me not feel like doing that much today.

Until next time!
