What Makes A Slick Floor In The RV?

We keep forgetting to tell you about the slick floor incident. Mama worked really hard cleaning Goldie before we left Houston. She mopped the floor the day before we left. However, the floor became very slick. She couldn't figure out why it was so slick.  She used the same cleaner she always used. When Dad came home she told him about the floor. He said he thought it felt gritty to him.  Mama then remembered that Dad had used the mop to clean Goldie's outside. She said "You didn't use wax on this mop, did you?"   Dad said "No, but I used a seal on it. I planned on throwing the mop away after I used it."  He, of course, didn't throw it away but just left it sitting outside, so Mama brought it in thinking he only used it with soap and water.  The gritty feel was probably just the dirt sealed into our floor.  Mama got down on her hands and knees and scrubbed the floor to try and get the seal off.  It got a little better but it was still slick.  It eventually wore off.  Mom threw the mop away.

Guess what?  The grumpy guy here actually waved to us as we walked by.  I guess he has decided we aren't so bad after all.

Last night, Mama fixed a really good Emeal dinner.  We have been bad about not telling you about our Emeals since we left Houston.

White BBQ Chicken
(3 T mayo, 2 t salt, 2 t pepper, 1 T sugar, 1½ T
vinegar, cooking spray)
⅛ c milk
2-3 boneless chicken breasts, pounded
1 lb red potatoes, washed & cut in 8ths
(¼ c olive oil, sea salt, cooking spray, foil)
½ small bunch asparagus

In a bowl, combine mayo, salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar and milk. Pour sauce over each piece of chicken in a
greased baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 min or grill. Toss potatoes in olive oil. Spread on sprayed cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt. Cover and bake along with chicken at 350° for 1 hour. Top with sauce from chicken. Sauté asparagus in olive oil until tender, 5-10 min.

 Mama especially thought the roasted potatoes were delicious.  She is not thrilled when she has recipes that take so long in the oven since our oven runs on propane and she is worried we will run out. It would hard to get it filled here.  Dad keeps telling her not to worry.


It's a rainy day here.  It's very dark in Goldie since we are in the woods.
We were left a nice comment yesterday about a greyhound get together next weekend. Thank you for telling us about it, but we cannot attend because that is the weekend that our "Grandparents" are coming to visit us.

The folks are going to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow. I think they may be planning on a trip to Camping World on Sunday. We need to replace our "house" batteries.  The house batteries run your lights and pull up your jacks and bring in your slides or maybe they put your slides out.  Regardless, they are all but drained. Mama is having trouble seeing to fix dinner at night.  Dad said they are about $150 and we need to buy something that goes with them that is $200.  Mama and I can't remember what that is, but we need a new one.  LOL   Dad has been putting off buying them, but he has stretched them as far as possible.
