Between Guest Again

                                              Thursday 8/27/15
Peace and quiet once again at our lake cottage after the second round of guests left. Ahh! Time to get ready for the last group of visitors now.
We traveled all over the USA and never was told in any Wal-Mart that dogs were not allowed until we moved to Northern Michigan. Because Mallery isn't allowed in our new Wal-Mart I had to buy a incognito dogie carrying bag. Mallery is such a good dog that she never makes a peep, but once in a while she sticks her nose out for a sniff and I have to tell her to hide.
She's the cutest and best little dog ever!

"OK Baby it's time to hide again before that mean lady tells me you can't be here again"!
Our contractor told us we had a leak in our pipe to our well before we got here this spring. He had fixed the pipe from the house out to the outside of the house, but he had wanted the pipe going farther down to be checked too. We waited all summer for someone to check out the other deeper pipe.
They needed a backhoe to dig down deep enough.
Good news, deeper than 6 foot, everything looks good. But a new pressure tank for our well was replaced in our crawl space. Our house inspector told us before we bought our home, this needed to be replaced. Total cost for the day $1500. Joe is having so much fun spending our money lately! "Not"!
We did have some day visitors, between our last visitors and our up coming visitors. We meet them 7 years ago. They live in Southern Michigan and were visiting Northern Michigan. Mark sits back with Joe,
and Brenda up front with me!

 We met Brenda and Mark in New Orleans at a campground. Here they were in our old South Wind Motor Home.

We had a great time drinking the Hurricane drinks and see the sights uptown New Orleans.
We have been so busy with guests, that I have not had time to show you our new cottage cabin with furniture and updates. After we moved our bed out of the living room into the bedroom, and got a wall painted, our furniture came a day before our first set of guests. The TV was mounted a day before our guests arrival. It has been a crazy summer to say the least!
In the smallest bedroom we put one twin bed for Joe's mom. Next summer believe it or not, 2 bunk beds will be in here for kids.

This is our new guest bathroom. We were originally going to have a wall pushed into the laundry room. Unfortunately we measured wrong, so it didn't happen! The tub was going to go in this bathroom in our  wrong measured plans. Dang!
The towel wall with blackboard plaques to write the guest's name above each towel.
The shower was enlarge quite a bit compared to the very small previous shower. Both of our motor homes had larger showers than the old shower was.

Here is a picture of the old bathroom. The wall that has the green towel was knocked out (which was a bedroom closet) to widen the bathroom. The ceiling was raised from less than 7 feet to 8 feet tall which made a huge difference in the feel of the room. ( It use to feel like a cave).

The sink and toilet were behind the old shower. Now the toilet is still behind the shower but turned facing the shower on the back wall. The sink is now visible from the bathroom door, also on the back wall.

Old picture of Joe showing how tight the old shower was. 
           Note how low the ceiling wasI have not taken pictures of our master bath yet, so I will do that soon.
