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.
After the morning showers were over, we started the mowing, only to the stopped by the afternoon showers.
Friday April 17
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.
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.
Saturday April 18
Guess what we did today? You got it mow between the rain drops.
We have a tiny office we work out of, but do most of the paper work in our fifth wheel.
Sunday April 19
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.
Monday April 20
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.
Of course we have guests in the park, so the cleaning keeps going on and on.
