Wax On...Wax Off...

It was a fine day to wax - cloudy but warm, windy but not too windy. We worked on the driver's side today and got the whole side done:




In case you might think Jim has to do all the work by himself - I take the lower sections since it's easier for me to fit under the slides. Looking pretty shiny!

Here are a few of the deer who regularly show up for their handouts. We've had up to 18 deer right outside our door.
This afternoon, we went to Walmart to pick up a few things. When we got back just after 5, there were 2 deer already in the yard, waiting. They just stood there and watched as I put my things down and opened the sack of corn to get a scoop. They didn't seem concerned at all as I spread the corn for them, and as soon as I came in, about 8 more showed up.
Jim is hoping he'll get a day off to go fishing tomorrow while Karon and I go to our Weight Watcher's meeting. She and I hope to get in some geocaching too, as it's been awhile since we've gone.
What a great day!

Some people get to have all the fun while some of us have to work. Hope you and Karon have a great report from WW and I am sure Jim deserves a day off.

Hugs,

Ellie!! You're making the rest of us wives who don't wax look bad! I'm not letting Randy see this post. ;)

Glad you all are enjoying your time in TX. And it is so cool that the deer come to you.

Take care!

Ellie that wax job looks marvelous! When I get to a warmer climate and stay someplace for a while, I will do mine.

One question about the deer corn - where do you store it and has it ever attracted rodents? I worry enough about the dog food.

Jim, I have to get me a new rod and reel and I will be ready to go fishing with you. All my rigs are old and worn out. When I lived on the lake I use to go all the time. I had my boat out most every day and when the lake was too rough to go out on I fished out of my boat stall. I can't wait to get back fishing again.
