Wanda’s Gone

Lazydays (CD 97)
Seffner, Fl

We’ve spent a couple of days “nesting” here at LD.  Friday morning, they took Wanda the Brave to the detail shop for her new owners.  There is a “sale pending” on the LD website.  In the afternoon, Dee and Jim came over for a visit.  Unfortunately, Tawanda had just been taken over to a service bay for her last fix.  I didn’t even get a chance to get my camera out of her.  We sat in a new coach that was just a few sites away from us that has a similar floor plan.  I still like ours better but it was a relaxing spot.  She was returned to us late in the evening.

We finally had a couple of days that we knew we weren’t going to have Tawanda taken away from us so we just enjoyed doing our thing.  While I read through a volume of the owner’s manual, Gin spent most of the day Saturday and Sunday installing her electronics.  Let’s see…that’s Wii, XBOX 360, Play Station 3, Roku, Digital Video Media Player, 10TB file server, Cradle Point Router, and an 8 port switch.  It’s all Greek to me!!  It looked like the cable fairy threw up in here.

We did mange to take the e-bikes for a ride around the grounds here and we found Wanda sitting outside the Detail Shop.  Her tires were shining nicely.

We noticed that the hood was opened and saw the reason why.  Someone had obviously bumped into her while she sat there!  There was a little bit of fiberglass on the ground under her bumper.

I’m glad I don’t have to worry about it but it was a bit sad to see.  She needs a good nose job now.

Our delivery adviser told us that the window awnings and things that we ordered should be here on Tuesday so we are planning to stay here and get those put on before we leave.  I sure hope that goes well and we can find a CG to stay in before the weekend.  This is a nice place to be, but we need to get a little closer to nature for a while.  We have a park in mind but it’s first come with no reservations so that can be a little iffy.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

It is fun to watch you getting your new home, although it sure does seem to take a long time to get everything handled. That little bump on Wanda was sad.

Shame on that cable fairy throwing up in your brand new coach :)
Glad it's all coming together for you. It will be so nice to get to a nice wooded site and relax a bit.

Wanda will make her new owners very happy. It's a shame about her booboo but I'm sure they'll give her a great nose job :)

Al and Karen said...

Oh poor Wanda...they just don't know how to treat her right! I laughed out loud reading about your cables...too funny. Hope to see you again before we all leave Florida in the spring.

It sounds like an exciting transition:)

Wanda will find a new happy home. Brave models are in high demand.

I can just visualize all the cables running everywhere for Gin's toys. Just be careful they don't reach out and strangle you before she gets them all fastened down!

Jim and Dee said...

You gave me a good laugh on the cables. That sounds like our son.

Did you check out Tampa East? It's not far up the road and a nice park. We stayed there a few nights last year. We forgot about that when we saw you.

I think you meant "its all Geek to you" :0 I can not believe someone broke Wanda's nose.

Karen and Al said...

I'm curious what a Digital Media Video Player is...we might need one:)

A few suggestions for campgrounds.
south, we liked Lake Kissimmee State Park. North, we liked Wekiva River State Park. Beach, Fort Desoto Park.

We also liked Lake Louisa SP (new park) near Disney.

It's hard to get a week-end site this time of year...but the further north, the easier it gets.

Another thing we have in common...we have a Roku too!

Ditto Karen and Al's recommendation of Ft. DeSoto State Park - on the water, just outside St. Petersburg. It is a beautiful park.

I actually have a picture of the cable fairy "stuff" all over the floor of your bedroom when we were there and the fairy was sitting in the middle of it. :-)

Glad to hear you are going to get everything wrapped up and won't have to go back to Lazy Daze.

But I'm SO sorry for Wanda. Her bigger sister Winnona had a nose boo boo too, last year, or the year before. who can remember? LOL. But they fixed her up just fine.

I don't think you'll have any trouble at that walk in park on a Thursday. :-)

Funny post! Sorry about the boo-boo on Wanda! Even though you have your new rig, I'm sure it "hurt" you! Hope you guys are doing well! Hope to see you soon.

Can't wait for you girls to be able to get your new house out on the open road. I know you are trying to learn everything and soak it all in!

Sorry about Wanda's owie. It's sad to see her go, but know that she'll create some great memories for her new owners.
