Golf Cart Upholstery

Our weather remains absolutely beautiful.  Today's high is in the mid 70s.  No 90s in the forecast until late next week.  We're LOVI'N it!!

Had to stop for a quick photo this morning.  

Met Neil Jeffers ( Maintenance Manager) as he was riding from one project to the next.  Sun Communities picked the right man for this job.  Thank you, Neil.

I was amazed at how many people commented on the blog post about water heaters.  There was certainly a lot more interest than I anticipated.  Phillip from Son's plumbing stopped by yesterday to finish installing the alarm on the interior water heater.  He said he has already received two jobs as a result of my post.  

Our next project is to get our golf cart reupholstered.  The Arizona sunshine just rots the fabric of the cart seats.  Because we're here year round, we insist on cloth seats because the plastic ones get too HOT.  

You can see how the fabric just dries out and cracks.

We need the carpet replaced as well.

We're going to try AJ's Upholstery on W 1st Street here in Casa Grande.  We drove over there yesterday to make arrangements.  AJ will pick up the cart sometime next week.  Will be sure to give you the before and after photos and whether or not we recommend him for future use.  After our interview yesterday, he certainly seems to know his stuff!  His business card says "autos, bikes, boats, awnings, convertible tops, and home projects."  


There was a knock on the door this past Saturday morning. 

I opened it to find a young, well-dressed man standing there who said:  "Hello sir, I'm a Jehovah's Witness." 

So I said "Come in and sit down.” 

I offered him a fresh cup of coffee and asked "What do you want to talk about?"

He said, "Haven't got a clue.... Nobody ever let me in before."
