Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch Blog for January 5th, 2016

Tuesday, January 5, 2016, 1830 Hrs.


Hello viewers!


Well, this morning, I woke up at 7:15 am with murky weather at 36 degrees with back pain and it seems it rained lightly last night, as it was cloudy and very moist outside.


As I was warming myself while my coffee was brewing with the generator on, I went to fire up both cars to charge up the batteries and found the mud to be quite slippery.


I have updated some of our eBay items on the shipping details and fixed some errors. I finally caught up with listing the new Braille Magazines today in eBay which I haven’t done for the past 2 ½ weeks. I still have to add more magazines! Yes, I am a bit behind and trying to catch up on everything! I am still awaiting Beth’s approval to have a “Moving Sale” at 10% off on everything in our eBay Store for 30 days to see if it helps to raise funds.


Rain came in at 10:30 am causing this place to darken and it is hard for me to do video work as I was planning. No, I can’t use lights over the generator because I need to save gas. Leaks still going on at the front unit, but this time is a minor, like an IV drips slowly. I had to put pot under the drip and drilled small holes to let it flow out. I am gonna need a roll of Aluminum Tape (like the A/C Technician use) so I can cover the vents opening and put some more roofing cement over the top of it which is already covered by plywood by previous owner.


Just learned we have sold 1 item in Ebay, but I can’t pull this out yet as the ground is still muddy. I went outside to get some water and found the mud here is very slick like you walk on ice in an ice skating rink with your tennis shoes on. I had to dance to keep from falling. (Roll eyeballs)


During the dark day, I had fixed up the pottery that Beth bought and put it together, fired up with 4 tea candles and let it burn until it ended, but it never warmed up in here, grrr, what a waste of candles! I think Beth got the 2nd pot that won’t fit in right, I guess. It has been in the 40’s all day.  I took almost 2 hours of nap today to help me feel more relaxed over my back pain.


The wind is picking up on me now by shaking the RV good! Now I am worried about getting toppled over!

Tomorrow I will try to pull out 1 eBay order, make a video or two, find a way to wash my clothes and finish off work on the eBay Store, all that depending on the weather and the muddy issues.


Good night folks, I better shut everything down for the night due to high winds!
