Getting The Boot . . .

Landon’s starting off school this year with a bang. Or at least a boot.

Landon's Boot

A month or so ago he was a trampoline park and said he hurt his foot.  But then didn’t say much more about it. Then the other day it was hurting again so Brandi took him to the doctor. And X-raying showed a stress fracture.

So now he has to wear the boot for a couple of months, though he can take it off to swim and bathe. I predict that as soon as he gets back to school it’s going to be covered in girl’s autographs.

Brandi did have this to say later.

“We had barely left the parking lot and he asked if I could buy him a bell so he can ring me when he needs something. I was a nice mommy and did not tell him what he could do with his bell.”

I went through the OTA TV signals from our new antenna this morning, logging all the channels we’ll be interested in. Here’s what I got.

  2-1 Channel 2 — NBC Network

  2-2 MeTV — Old TV Shows

57-7 This TV — Old Movies

67-2 Get TV — Old TV Shows

67-3 Grit TV — Old Movies

One of the unusual ones is on 39.4. Called the FailFactory, it seems to be a channel that just shows Funniest Home Video type clips 24 hours a day.

The gasket that I hope will fix my rig’s oil leak problem will be here on Monday, So I went ahead and order a new oil filter from Amazon that also should be here Monday. I was thinking about reusing the old filter since it only has about 500 miles on it, but I’m not sure about reusing the rubber gasket on it. But I decded not to take a chance.

I did tell Jan that once I do get it all changed out I’m not going to worry about doing a test drive, since the problem has never occurred on a test drive, just on a real trip. I will let it run at high-idle for 30 minutes or so to check of regular leaks.

This afternoon we headed out about 4 for dinner at Los Ramirez Mexican Restaurant once again. Then we stopped at the tire store and made an appointment to come by at 12:30 tomorrow afternoon for them to take care of my stuck lug nut problem. Then after a WalMart stop we headed home.

    Greg,

    It might be worth the money to get all new lug nuts that haven’t been over tightened.

  2. Hoping Landon heals up real soon before his mom gives him the boot. Our grandson had similar fracture on a Trampoline just before starting Kindergarten. His leg was set in a cast.

    Too many Tire Places only use the Impact Gun to tighten on wheels so they get over tightened. They should always be Torqued.

    Good luck on resolving the Oil Leak.

    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.

  3. What kind of antenna did you need to get all of those channels.

    With all this traveling we get different stations everywhere we go, I’ve found one of my favorite is working out to be ION, reruns of shows I like. Ya’ the westerns on Grit are good too!

    I use the antenna that came with the RV. When I was in Quartzsite it wasn’t enough & I used an antenna like you linked to, I used it with 15′ of pole but it worked.

    I bought an antenna like the one you have. Have it up close to the front window inside. Works pretty good. How did you put it up outside. I see it in the picture. How did you fasten it to the side of your motorhome?

      Larry,

      I have 4-5ft antenna pole sections. I used 3 of them to mount the antenna and then it’s ty-wrapped to the arm of our large awning that we never use. I could have also ty-wrapped it to the ladder on the back of the rig.

      Hope this helps.
