Fossil Update, Screens and Spring

Honey and I took our normal morning hike around the neighborhood yesterday.  I am not sure who is walking who.  She is on some kind of timer that gets her up at 7 a.m. and she is ready to go at 7 a.m.  
She does a little stretching exercise and off we go.
She keeps looking back to make sure I am with her even though we are tethered.  As we hiked I noticed that Spring is indeed arriving in Seattle.  As you can see we had a sunny day yesterday with temperatures in the high 50's, low 60's.  It was beautiful as we walked through the neighborhood.

We had a lot of shopping to do yesterday and we succeeded in completing all of it.  We got the new chairs for the trailer from IKEA, looked at Tuff sheds as a possible gazebo, hit Costco and the grocery store and went to the bank.  We also went to the Fossil store.

In an early post I told you about the Fossil watch I received from on of the manufacturers that the dealership I worked for had represented.  It is a very nice looking watch but unfortunately it didn't work.  According to the instructions in the can it was a self winding watch that only required winding if it had set for a long period of time so I followed the instructions and wound it.  Nothing…It didn't move.  We went to Fossil in Southcenter yesterday and a very nice and patient young lady took care of me.  It appears the watch had set for sometime before being given to me and the battery (yep, not a self winder) had died.  I happily spent $10.95 for her to install a new battery and make it work.  Not only does it look good on my arm, it tells time.  I remember these from before smart phones.

I contacted Northwood Manufacturing yesterday about an obscure little clip I need to hold the screen into the window near the dinette in the trailer.  I haven't heard back, but I searched Google and could come up with anything that looked quite like this.

I am hoping I will hear from them today.

After all the shopping yesterday and while Mia was fixing dinner I went down into the garage and decided it was spring cleaning time for the truck.  Because we have Honey the interior of the truck can take along time if you really try to dispose of the vast majority of the hair.  I vacuumed and vacuumed, brushed and picked, until I didn't see the point any longer.  I cleaned everything including the heater vent grilles, dash, door panels, glass, seats and carpets.  I didn't get to the rubber floor mats.  The inside of the truck looks pretty good and I'll attack the outside and those rubber mats today.  

I can't help but wonder, how the heck did we get all this stuff done when we were working?

Hope everyone is well and thanks for stopping by.
