Waiting for our turn to go into the repair bay this morning .......
Thought for the day:

Don’t eat raw spinach ;-)

We continue our stay here at McKay’s Trucking in Albany, Oregon. Our “exhaust leak” turned out to be a header with a big hole and it was decided to replace rather than repair. Ouch! The new ones should arrive today.
A new set of stairs is on, the hot water tank received a new thermostat, the furnace has a new fan and the undercarriage has been inspected and the repair completed last year declared sound. Penny’s belts and hoses have been checked; she has had her lube, oil and filter, her brake lines inspected and her transmission and generator serviced. We don’t have to worry much about any moths left in the old wallet after this week!

Phil and I drove to Reedsport and Winchester Bay Oregon on Tuesday. Both places have significant genealogical interest for me as my mother went to high school, married and gave birth to her first born, my sister Robin while she lived there. We poked around the Discovery Center on the riverfront (excellent); went to the public library (found some great old pictures) and then visited the Coast Guard Museum in Winchester Bay. The lady in charge, Gaylan took us on a personal tour even though it was closed. She was a wealth of information about the area and her expertise will be very helpful.
On Wednesday, we drove over to Sweet Home and Foster then up to Salem and back. Found a good restaurant for dinner in Albany. I had a great steak sandwich and Phil enjoyed his favorite, a deluxe cheeseburger!
