From last Saturday until now

Upper Deerfield Twp,  NJ.

Last Saturday we met up with Amy and brought the girls home for the night.  On Saturday afternoon we took them to our local small zoo.   I had taken Charlotte earlier in the year.  This was Abby's first time.

When we picked up the girls, Charlotte was SOOOO excited about her new Pillow Pet - a black cat.  But, after leaving the Zoo we passed a yard sale.   There is was!  Charlotte has been wanting her own doll house.  So Grandpa slams on the breaks and opens his wallet.  For the rest of the weekend, Pillow Pet took a backseat to the doll house.  Aunt "T" (the name Charlotte gave her aunt Terri when she was learning to talk) and Uncle Steve went shopping Sunday morning and  helped to furnish the house in fine style.

We had planned on keeping the girls most of Sunday and meeting Amy midway Sunday afternoon.  However, Charlotte's allergies really kicked up.  We think it might be due to the chemicals the dealer used on our carpet when it was returned to us last week.   So we took the girls all the way home a little earlier than originally planned.   Last year we saw fields and fields of tall sunflowers in Jarrettsville, MD, a town close to where they live.  This year there were only a few fields and the flowers appeared stunted.

Besides missing our family here in NJ and MD and our friends in this area, we will miss our home church and church family.

Dear church friends Diane and Russ Kilmaier

Len called our dealer yesterday regarding concerns about the rig.  They said the new steps were changed accidentally - it was meant for another rig.   Hey- our old steps were more study and larger.   They said we can bring our rig back and they will put our steps back on - no charge!   WELL THANK YOU!!!!  No thanks, you people will never touch this rig again.    I have written a letter to Keystone asking for an inspection at another Montana dealer.

Looks like Grandpa is spoiling his granddaughters,Sam is the same way with his grandson Adam.Bet the girls will love the dollhouse. Adam had a JD Gator, ( the electric one) when he was four and just outgrew it this year. (9).Hope you have good luck with the landing gear and it wasn't dropped, if you can see in the front where it attaches maybe you can see if it appears disturbed, my old one had clamps holding them on and they might shift a little if dropped, the new 5th is enclosed so I would have to remove the covers to inspect it.
Be safe oput there. Sam & Donna.

Looks like the girls had a great time visiting!

How does an RV dealer put new steps on the wrong RV accidentally? Sure glad those guys are just RV techs and not doctors!!

Glad you are getting your steps back! Geez..
On another note..I used to live in Street, MD, right next to Jarrettsville! I miss that area..nice people, pretty houses..sigh..

Thanks for your great comments. I really appreciate you reading my Blog/Journal.

I do hope Keystone come up with the best dealer possible to check your 5er.

Cute grandkids! The new dollhouse is a great idea. Nice of grandpa to stop and buy it.

Yeah...don't give in to those idiots at the repair place. Keep on top of this issue until you get satisfaction.

Good luck.
