We Might Be Here For a While

Howe, Indiana          High 78 Low 67

We had our almost mandatory rain storm last night and this morning. After 11 AM it did quit but more is forecast. It was so much that two of the vacant RV sites not far from us were flooded.

We went to see Cindy's mom this morning and she looked a lot better. We found out from Linda that the physical therapist thought she should spend some time in a rehab center before continuing any traveling.

Linda found a rehab place she likes in LaGrange, Indiana about 5 miles from us, that she likes and as soon as her Mom is released she will go there for a while. At this time we don't know how long she will be there. LaGrange is south of us, while Sturgis is north. She has been in the Sturgis, Michigan hospital.

This afternoon Cindy and I went looking for a reclining love-seat for our fifth wheel to replace the hide a bed. If it is not the most uncomfortable seat I have ever sat in, it is in the top ten. We found out that because of the way the slide is built, we are pretty much stuck with what we have. The slide is up 7 inches above the floor and it would put any type of sofa too high to easily get into, and then there is the headroom problem. One manufacturer said he could make a long step that we could move when the slides are brought in but Cindy convinced me that I probably would hit my head every time I tried to sit down if the seat were any higher. I might try to see if I can have the bottom cushions replaced with something more comfortable.

Maybe if we are going to be as long as I expect, I can find someone that can make something.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Good luck with your recliners and mom stuf.

  2. I did the same thing ... took out the small couch/bed and replaced it with a chair. They had to build a piece three inches tall for the chair to sit on, making it a tad bit harder to sit down. I love it, but of course never sit in it because it's too small for two dogs and me. We sit on the couch instead.

  3. Since the frame of most Recliners and Sofas is a wooden box someone could possibly make one with a short base.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
