But we do appreciate our Followers and those who read perhaps more casually and haven't yet chosen to actively Follow. We certainly appreciate you folks out there who leave us a comment. It is my practice to respond to every comment, at least those that show up also in my email, which a lot of them do.
So bless our readers!
Recently I wrote that daughter Kathie and her husband Shawn had bought us some beautiful wine glasses, but that we were concerned about how to store them safely in the motorhome. Kevin and Ruth, of Travels with Kevin and Ruth, suggested buying plastic quart-sized milk bottles and cutting them down to size. How clever. We went one step beyond (because I accidentally bought half-gallon jugs) and encased each glass in one of my heavy sweat socks (after they were washed, of course), then placed the wrapped glasses in the milk bottles and moved them to the back of the cabinet.
Here are pix of the glasses and of the glasses in their snug harbor.
|Such pretty glasses!|

In yesterday's post, I wrote about grilling fresh pineapple that had been dipped first in coconut milk, then in turbinado sugar.
Dave Dods Off to Mexico suggested that, if we had purchased the first grill with our American Express Card, we should see if they have an extended warranty that would cover replacement. He had just had a successful TV replacement experience with American Express.
On the same issue, Clark, of Clark Rambling suggested that Costco's return policy is such that they might have made an exchange for the damaged grill.
Well, we looked into American Express's website, and it looked to us that this would not be covered. We drove the quarter mile or so up to Costco, explained what had happened, and the lady at first sounded skeptical, since we hadn't brought in the damaged grill, nor did we have the original receipt (it is tucked safely away in our casita in Benson). However she did agree to a refund on the condition we bring in all parts of the old grill. Since our original plan had been to toss the old grill in the dumpster, I had kept out a couple of parts that could be interchangeable (such as the grill rack itself). The rest of the old grill was in the new grill's box in the car, waiting to be dumped. I hurried home, got the old parts from the new grill, and dashed back to Costco, luckily finding an up-front parking place (on Friday of the Memorial Day weekend!). The lady promptly issued us a refund in the form of a Costco Cash Card,
THANK YOU, reader Clark! You saved us $100!
We will certainly use that cash card next week as we feed Rosie a bunch of gasoline for the next leg of this journey in ... Our Life on Wheels!
