A Beautiful Day

Wow! Monday was a beautiful day in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. It finally reached 80 degrees, but the temperature was pleasant all day long and took its time to climb to 80. Unfortunately, I was inside most of the day trying to get some paperwork completed. I still have a lot to do and mucho sermon preparation for Nigeria this week and next.

I did get outside for about an hour. I have been needing a pretty day to clean the compartment behind the front bumper of the BoggsMobile. This area was full of air conditioners when we bought the bus. After we added AC to the roof, I removed and sold the old units. Later  I cleaned the area from all the years of accumulated oil, dirt and debris.

I kept it clean for a few years because it seemed like I was always having to get in there to work on something. I had not needed in there in quite a while and it was looking pretty nasty. That area catches a good deal of road gunk and the small power steering leak makes a mess after a while too.

The last time I had to open it up for someone to work, I was embarrassed. Now it is clean and ready to go.

I also replaced the end on one of my 50 amp cords. I have used the yellow cord ends for years, but they have never lasted very long. I hated to use them, but I did not have many other options. I found another brand online and it had much better reviews.

I could tell when I was putting it on the cord that it is much better than the brand I had been using. I think it will have a longer life span. Time will tell. Sometimes I go weeks without needing the extensions cords that I carry and sometimes I need extensions every week.

That was the extent of my outside work Monday.

Revival service was good last night. Of course, if the preaching had been better then the service would have been better too. I do love trying to preach though and these folks make it easy. We are enjoying it.

I had received some pictures from home over the last couple of weeks and I had not had a chance to share them with you.

Bro. Jimmy Millikin and his family were preaching revivals in our home area for about 10 days or so. I had invited them to park at the Lazy OD Ranch on different occasions and it worked out this time for them to do so. I think their truck and trailer look pretty good at the ranch.

We were thrilled to have them park there. That is exactly the reason we installed the utilities outside and it sure pleased me to have my favorite evangelist park his home on wheels there for a few days. I hope Bro. Millikin and his family are able to park next to the big red barn for many years to come. Bro. Jimmy said it was very peaceful to be there and that is like music to our ears.

The last afternoon Bro. Jimmy hooked up and turned around so that they could leave early the next morning. The sky was blue that day so I am including that picture too.

The Millikins are now in Oklahoma, their home area, and we are hoping to get to see them before we move east toward Ohio and then to Africa. We are excited to see them again.

That about does it for me today. Thank you for dropping in.
