Breakfast surprise

So I'm starting my breakfast, not at all looking forward to Day 3 of ripping off my torch on roof. It's a brutal job when the sun is beating down, the only time you can rip your roof off. The front half I did 3 years ago and it took my 6 weeks.

So when my wife said those favorite words, "I was thinking" I kind of groaned inside. As if I need any other projects at this time. She reminded me of ETI saying that the oak interior might not be available next year and that the $1,000 discount might end at some point. So I said that I was happy with our 19 but if she really wanted the 21 she could go ahead and order one.

So when I came down off the roof for lunch and inquired about things she said we're getting our 21 on Sept. 6th.

Well the consolation is that we don't have to agonize over the build sheet. We know what we want. Heck, we don't even have to do much for the graphics, just tell them we want the same as we already have. They match the truck perfectly.

Ron

Congrats.
Reminds me of walking into the back yard ten years ago. My wife was relaxing on the garden swing and I said, "lets buy an Escape". And, not even looking up from her book, she said, "lets do that".

That's one of two decisions that haven't been finalized yet.
Not that we have to any time soon. I know the pros and cons of both and I know everyone has their own opinion. I'll post our build list when we sign off on it. I might have to eat crow on a couple of items.

Yah, 39 years but who's counting. Between sailing the world's seas and oceans and travelling the highways and byways we've gone a long distance together.
