Campin' Out

We're sleeping in our travel trailer tonight while it's parked in our yard. Living in the country so close to nature has a few disadvantages. Once or twice a year, our house gets overrun with brown or recluse spiders. When this happens we resort to bug bombs to knock them back a bit. Usually we can pick a time, either in the spring or in the fall, where we bomb the house, take a trip of several days, and return to open windows and air out the place. We missed this spring. This last week, I killed a half a dozen recluse spiders, two or three really big ones, and decided a bombing was past due. Per recommendations on the can, we shut off the A/C, refrigerators, and anything that might produce a spark before we set off the bombs and afterward we need to open windows for several hours. That's not something one wants to do in the middle of a 100 degree day so we did it this evening. Tomorrow, we'll go to Marks for breakfast and spend most of the morning in BA. Hopefully, the fumes will dissipate by tomorrow afternoon when we return (and when I actually upload this entry).

I worked a few hours on genealogy this evening while in the trailer.
I was responding to a question from a distant cousin about our Duke family who lived in SC during the Revolutionary War years.

I've finished the drywall repair and plan to touch up the paint tomorrow. After the paint dries, I'll install the doorway.
