Has anyone seen that advertisement on television, I forget what they're advertising, but some guy is trying to use the last drop of anything and everything before he buys another? The one I really remember is the toothpaste tube on the vise...."see honey, enough for one more brushing!" This guy is conservative. Ultra conservative. Uber conservative. Enter my husband. Honey, if you're reading this you better run for cover!
Most of you know I'm temporarily living in a town 2+ hours from my home babysitting with my newest grandbaby until school is out. We have a very, very, very nice camper (no tent camping for me) and I love staying in it. It has a king sized bed and a full shower and recliners. :) What can I say...I'm spoiled. We even found this nice little mobile home park out in the country and there's a pasture behind my camper. Quiet, nice, perfect for this little grandmother. Well, not so little but that's another story.
Spring came and spring went. Winter revisited us. Last night it got down to 28°! About 8:00, after my shower was done and my pajamas were on and I was settling down to watch Twilight (the movie) I realized the heat had gone off. And stayed off. So I turned up the thermostat. Nothing. Up another notch. Nothing. That's when I realized that I had run out of butane. Which makes heat. Not to worry...we have two bottles. Except one was empty and one was almost empty. So empty it was breathing it's last. My husband wanted to wait till they ran completely out until he refilled them. Of course, I had the "heat strip" which is electric and designed to take the chill off. It did. I could have gone to my son's house at 10:00 in my pajamas in the cold but who wants to do that? This morning when I got up it was 52° inside the camper. There was just enough butane to get it up to 61° before I left. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
I bet he feels really bad. He should!
**Edited to note that it's not butane in my camper, it's propane. What do I know? Just that my tank is empty and it needs to be filled. But according to the man at the camper place, it's propane that it needs to be filled with. :)
