My granddaughter lost her first tooth yesterday, and I learned that kids don't have the same kind of tooth fairy that I depended on as a child.
My tooth fairy was a very poor and impoverished tooth fairy that barely had enough money to leave a dime under my pillow in exchange for my tooth. But it just so happened ten cents was all a comic book cost so not knowing any better I was pretty happy.
But the tooth fairy now days has apparently done quite well investing in the stock market and bitcoin, and has plenty of money to buy all the teeth he wants at a price that's absolutely shocking...They tell me it's inflation.
I certainly don't remember the first tooth I lost but I do remember the last because it was day before yesterday.... Where's the tooth fairy when you need him, even a dime would be helpful now.
I started working on the solar panels about 8:30 this morning, and it was already getting pretty warm. Amazon brought me some wire yesterday afternoon, so I think I've got enough to get started on hooking up solar panels.
The first thing I had to do was drill a hole in the roof of the Lance for a number 4 gauge cable to pass through from where my number 10 gauge wires from the solar panels connect with the 4 gauge to go from the roof down to the solar controller.
Yes, I know some folks have a kitten just thinking about drilling a hole in the roof of an RV. It bothered me a little the first time I made a 14-inch square hole back in the 1970s by cutting a hole in the roof of my van to put a roof vent in, but since then, I've put more holes in RV roofs than I can count and I've never had a leak from any of them.
If you think about it your RV roof is not some pristine, never been touched, solid sheet of rubber. The RV factory makes Swiss cheese out of your RV roof by cutting holes in it for vent fans, plumbing vents, skylights, refrigerator vents, pre-wiring for solar panels, TV antennas, satellite dishes, and there are probably more, but that's just the ones that come to mind. So I figure if the factory can put that many holes in your RV roof without them leaking, I can sure as heck drill one 1/2 inch hole and patch it up, without it becoming a problem.
So I ran the number 4 cable from the roof to the solar controller and then to the one 12-volt battery the Lance came with. And now I'm hooking up my three solar panels so they can start charging my single house battery.
My grandson. I haven't had much time for picture taking lately, I've been too busy working on the Lance; I've got that one track mind you know.
