The back window on my camper shell lost it’s shocks, the things that hold it up.
I lived about 15 minutes from a beach near Corpus Christi about 7 years ago. The truck spent a LOT of time very close to the salty spray. Not close enough to get stuck in the sand but really really close to the waves.
I didn’t get any rust except for those window holder-upper things. One went fairly quickly. The other one lasted a while but it finally gave way and leaked all of it’s oil out and never worked again.
It’s a pain in the butt to hold the window up with one hand while trying to open or close the tailgate.
Not to mention how awful it is to have to climb in there with a heavy window hitting you on the head.
Finding replacements has been it’s own challenge but we may have succeeded. We shall see.

It’s finally here and it is H.O.T.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the heat. The humidity, though….. I could do without feeling like I could cut the air with a knife. Where’s the cool breeze? Where’s the relief with being in the shade?
I do my best to keep complaints to myself, or at least to a minimum. I prefer to use that privilege in the winter. Cause give me hot weather over cold all day.
Do you have a summer vacation planned?
We have quite a nice vegetable garden going, so we won’t be leaving it for an extended time this summer. The hot weather is good for the okra, peppers, and tomatoes. Mini vacays and mental breaks will suffice for us this summer. We get to eat yummy veggies though! It’s a good trade.
Ants Are Here
They don’t like the heat either. We currently have them in our bathtub, presumably in search of cool water to drink. They have been inundating the kitchen countertops, stove, and sink too.
While I feel for them and their plight, I don’t apprciate them running around my kitchen. You feel me?
While being mindful of our limited space and our food prep area, we have been using Terro Liquid Ant Bait to keep them at bay. It works like a charm! If the darn things would just stay outside……
I hope your summer is fantastic! Stay cool. Stay well.
Do you have travel plans, or are you staying home and tending your garden this summer?
