Phew...that was a close one!!!!

I don't want to leave everyone in suspense tonight, wondering if I am sitting here in Florida with my legs crossed, not being able to use our new toilet... I had to drive around a bit this morning, but Stewarts Mobile RV Service out of Avon Park, had a new fitting that I needed to attach our water line to our new toilet water inlet, and it worked perfect! No leaks even, so all is good again at RVlifeonwheels!

At least I did not have to call in a very expensive RV Service Call, which would not have happened until FRIDAY by the way! Yikes, could you imagine! Don't want to go there!

On a more upbeat item, we got to meet some Blog Readers today! Bill and Karen drove down here from the Midland area of Ontario, (managing to escape the big ice storm...) and are enjoying the Florida sunshine!

We got together with them, over at Tom and Cheryl's 5th wheel this afternoon and enjoyed some refreshments. They are a great couple, who have come down here for a winter's vacation for a couple weeks, as they have to go back to and work in January. They have a dream though, to head out on the road and full time it! They do have a motorhome back in Ontario! They joined us this evening, and we all enjoyed a great Christmas Show put on in the big Rec Hall compliments of Rainbow Resort. We will get together with them for some more activities before they head back home!

Check out Tom and Cheryl's new "man cave..." The sun here in Florida can be relentless, and you need shade to sit out for extended periods of time. Last year Judy and I bought ours from J & J Sunshades out of Lake Wales, and so we were back there again this year to introduce Tom and Cheryl.

This is Chopper above... he is one of the two Guard Dogs at J & J Sunshades... As soon as I rubbed his head, I knew I had him!

I took this picture above, just for the heck of it! There is a Motorcycle Shop, "Iron Eagle", and yes, they might sell the odd gun as well! This replica gun is like a landmark around here...

Till tomorrow...



  1. Nice to have the biffie issue resolved. You can now relax at Christmas. Merry Christmas to you and Judy.

  2. Glad you got your problems with the toilet fixed for a Number of reasons.
    We met Tina and Gary at the Tampa RV Show last January and really enjoyed the Sunshade they made for us. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. You are a lucky man to resolve that problem prior to Christmas, John.

    I can see that guard dog looks like a real killer!

    Merry Christmas to you, Judy and your entire family!

  4. Isn't it funny that we get so excited about things like getting a toilet replaced with no leaks. RVers are a strange and wonderful lot. Merry Christmas.

  5. Good job and the toilet repair. Always nice to meet fellow bloggers and enjoy their company.
    Merry Christmas!

  6. Would not be fun to have the toilet non-operational over Christmas (or anytime for that matter!). Wishing you and Judy a very merry Christmas.
