Rain, Rain… Livingston, TX, July 9-15, 2012

In the last week we certainly have had our fair share of rain, over 9”.  Also  nine of the next 10 days have a forecast of rain, so it is not over.

We have been busy at the Care Center doing our assigned jobs, which includes every other night being on call.  Thank heavens we have had no emergency calls at night, we  sure have a healthy group of folks here!

Every night all four of us volunteers meet around 5:45 to all help clean up the dining area. All chairs are wiped down with a vinegar and water solution, the tables are also wiped off with the same solution. Then the floor is vacuumed. Bob has become known as the happy vacuumer!


IMG_1153Our new dehumidifier (Eva-Dry 2200)arrived a few days ago.  So far we are pleased with its performance.  It has pulled anywhere between a half to a full cup of water every day. 

This week it was time to deep clean under the stove top, I mean down below the black cover you see.  And yes, there are NO photos of what was there, it was bad.

Next Monday, the 23rd, we have an appointment at a local RV repair shop for them to work on our icemaker leak and diagnose our Splendide washer/dryer combo.  We know the icemaker leaks from the solenoid in the back up to where the water enters the frig, so the frig will need to be removed to get at it.  The washer/dryer won’t agitate, but repairs on it also involve its removal and that should be interesting to watch.

Just goes to show that no good deed goes unpunished. There you are doing great work volunteering and your fridge and washer go on the fritz.

Maybe with all that rain you can drown Murphy... ;c)

Glad your job is going smoothly! You remind me that I REALLY need to deep clean under my stove top, too. Chances are, I'll continue putting it off until Roger leaves for 3 weeks. I'll have lots of time then!

Looks like Bob drives a mean vacuum cleaner. So glad you two are helping these people. It takes special people like you two with a ton of patience to be CARE volunteers!
