Day 25 - Spike

Since we are going to be in Needles, CA, for the rest of the month, I won't put the location in the title of the post. For dinner yesterday, we went to visit Spike, the Peanuts character who called Needles home. The only reference to the cartoon character in town is at the Subway just off the northernmost exit in Needles. We never made it there back in October. Bridget is a fan of the Peanuts comics so this was a must stop. For me, it was an opportunity to get an Italian B.M.T. sandwich (my favorite). The last couple of years I was at the university, the bargain meal was the 6" sub at the Subway in the upper dorm complex. Only $3. I suspect that isn't the case anymore and was not the case here either.

This picture was just playing around with portrait mode on the iPhone. They call this “stage lighting”,

Today, we went into Fort Mojave to mail some stuff off. We are able to receive mail and packages at this RV park so I'm expecting some more RV related projects to arrive next week sometime. To prevent too many tasks from accumulating, today seemed like a good day to eliminate another one that I’ve been planning to do for a while which is to replace the shower faucet. Hmm. that's two plumbing projects this week. It was pretty easy except the RV manufacturer didn't allow any slack in the Pex plumbing. It would've been easy to just have a couple of inches that would pull into the storage bay. But there was none. No leaks.

It's been threatening to rain all day. But, not much more than a few sprinkles. It has been pretty windy for most of the afternoon but not much rain. This was a good rainy day project.

Bridget looks like she's making an obeisance to Snoopy.... :)

Exactly my thought, too.

The portrait mode on the camera did a good job. Seeing Spike and eating subs seems more fun than plumbing projects.

When I mentioned this to Bridget, she wondered why I took that and chose to put it on the blog.....

I really like the iPhone as a camera. It works as a phone but the only reason for upgrading was to get the better camera. Probably a lame excuse but that was the main reason. The 6S was working just fine though it probably needed a new battery.

Oh, and just about anything I’d better than a plumbing project.

I like the stage lighting mode!

Portrait mode is interesting. I need to play with it more...
