What's There to Do at Florida Grande?

Things are really picking up here at Florida Grande, more and more people are coming in for the Tampa RV Super Show which is coming up January 11th-15th...Activities are listed on the January calendar and there's a lot to do....

This morning Eldy went to the RV Chat session which was all about coach renovations, run by the Classic Coach Works company out of Lakeland, FL. They renovate motorhomes, buses, 5th wheels, and travel trailers.  We don't need any renovations (well, Sparky would love to get rid the heavy quarry floor tile that never got sealed and over time the tiles are coming loose and the grout is cracking) and Sparky would like to take out one couch and put two chairs in so we don't have to crane our necks to watch the main TV that is set way up too high up front in the RV.....and Sparky would like to------......(It's a good thing Sparky didn't go to the chat session! says E.) Just wishful thinking for down the road, sweetie....
Eldy got a photo sheet that shows some of the renovations Classic Coach does...he didn't ask prices, which was probably a good thing! He liked the TV that replaces one of the couches in the bottom center photo. The TV goes down into the storage unit for storage...neat! Except you lose the seating space but you gain cabinet drawer space. Sparky likes the flat panel TV setup in the center middle photo. There's a ton of room left after replacing an old TV that took up cabinet space, so the owners put in a safe behind the TV. In the center right photo, the TV lifts UP, then slides into the bay on a shallow tray...You've still got storage bay space left!

It's fun to see what can be done...Just like it's fun to go visit home shows, garden shows...You may not be in the market at the moment for big or even little changes, but it's nice to know you have options for your 400 or smaller square feet of living space.

This afternoon Sparky was busy making "BLING"!  She went to a "chunky necklace" jewelry making class and came home with not only a necklace, but a bracelet and money making ideas for selling jewelry on the road! (OH-H-H-H NO-O-O-O! Not another craft!) Relax, Eldo! Sparky's already got jewelry making supplies on board....(BESIDES YARN??????! Egad! You gotta watch this woman of mine...I had no idea!)  Heh, heh, heh.....

Coming home from the class, I saw this sign on a Honda CRV....Gotta get one of those, Eldo!


After another cold night last night (28 degrees), it's finally warming up again...Yay! Even Sparky is ready for warmer weather---but not hot!  Bye for now.......
