Moments of Duh!

I wrote earlier how much fun we had in San Diego.  One of the things we did that was unusual for us was that we bought beer when our son was coming over for dinner.  Having beer brings up the problem of refrigerator space.  RV fridges are small and ours was already pretty crammed.  So I did the obvious thing and bought one of those $3 styrofoam coolers and a bag of ice.  Worked great!  Kept the beer cold and we had half a bag of ice leftover so we didn't have to fool around with making ice cubes for rest of the trip. 

We got home and threw the leftover ice into the freezer side of our home fridge.  For a couple more days we have those nice clear cubes.  Ok, that's fine, until the ice maker in our refrigerator freezer stopped working.  Grrr!  There might be a repair person left in Pahrump but I rather doubt it.  And if the quality of the work is the same as the electricians we've had working here, you have half a chance of getting a complete idiot.  (Our 2nd electrician was excellent!)  So we are using the ice from the bag and reading the freezer instruction book and scratching our heads.  I won't tell you how long it took us to figure out that the plastic bag was blocking a sensor that tells the ice maker that it's full so not to make any more!  It was just way too long.

Aside from the ice making fiasco, things have been quiet.  I've been spending way too much time on the computer trying to figure out what kind of tv and dvd player I want in the den.  Love those reviews on Amazon and other sites.  If they aren't real purchasers they've got me fooled.  (Not that being fooled is all that impossible!)  But at least I'm reading the specs of many different options without having to hoist the boxes.  Don't you just love the internet.

Have a good one!

That would have been nice, paying a repairman big bucks and being told the bag is blocking a sensor.
