Mow, Rain, Mow, Rain, Got the Picture?

Thursday April 16

April showers bring May flowers – Right? – well they also make the grass grow like crazy.  We were told the mow cycle is about every three weeks during the summer, well right now it’s about every 6 days!  We have 6 1/2 acres of lawn, flower beds, trees, roads, and sites to maintain.

Ditches to maintain

After the morning showers were over, we started the mowing, only to the stopped by the afternoon showers.

Guess what?  Morning showers, mowing, afternoon rain! The object is to get it to look like this each week.

Peggy cleans the bathrooms at least once a day, everyone wants clean showers and bathroom – it is the mark of a well maintained RV park.

Each bathroom has two showers, today a guest didn’t turn one of the showers off completely, and of course the water hit the handles, splashed out of the shower and not only messed up that bathroom but migrated to the other bathroom.  At first we thought we had another leak (this would be number 7 this month), but after tearing off the finished wood we only found it was migration.

Tonight we went to see the movie Paul Blart – Mall Cop 2.  

maxresdefaultVery Funny, I don’t know how a guy as big as Kevin James can move so much.

Ruby Cinemas, Franklin NC, has brought back the movie (for a second run) Do You  Believe?  If you haven’t seen this great movie, go out of your way to find it.

Guess what we did today? You got it mow between the rain drops.

Look at all the diffent types of fuel we have

Look at all the different types of fuel we have, diesel, mower gas, Lawnboy gas, Stihl gas, blower gas, chain saw gas and oils. Hope we can keep then straight.

We have a tiny office we work out of, but do most of the paper work in our fifth wheel.

The receptionist must be away right now!

Our main steed, the mighty Kubota Diesel.

Our main steed, the mighty Kubota Diesel.  It mows, grades roads, thatches grass, pull stumps, plows ditches, and spreads chemicals and fertilizers.

If this lawn vac was any bigger we would have to rent it is own RV spot.  You can actually crawl in and sleep in it.

I forgot the 30 ton log splitter, eat your heart out Tanya.  Our fertilizer is on the back shelf.

This is how our sites look.

We got up and went to Franklin Covenant Church  this morning.  Friends Jeremy and Julie told us about this church.  She and her friends did worship dance here on Easter Sunday.  This is a very friendly church.   After church we watched it rain most of the day and did paperwork.

This is what the rain is supposed to do, May pictures of Franklin RV Park last year.

Guess what we did today?  If you guessed mow between the rains you win the prize.  Peggy got into weedeating.  Because of the rain there are a lot of areas neither the tractor nor mower can get to – so we weedeat.

Lots of weedeating along our streams.

Of course we have guests in the park, so the cleaning keeps going on and on.

We do enjoy our birds.

We do enjoy our birds.  We currently have five feeders in the park and dozens of birdhouses.  The blue jay seems to push everyone out!  This is from our dining room.
