DON:

Pulling the Aluma trailer, what size engine do you have in your MH? Do you have trouble pulling hills? I had thought about going that way and a friend talked me out of it due to the weight of the trailer over the weight of the dolly.

Chuck:

I thought about you and Kathy Mon night. We went to an Astros game and saw three broadcast trucks sitting on a side street, it look like they were just cleaning them out, getting ready for the next job. Any of them belong to ya'll?

Don - I wasn't so sure - a new fifth wheel and boat of his dreams.... I had two sons in the not so sure about that column..... Sounds more like big kids to me - but I speak only from experience (mine).

Ever wonder why a good ponder can not be forced to happen? You can assign your brain with the task of producing a fresh ponderance, but likely the result will be boring.

I know I'm not alone with this feeling. Every breathing soul has at one time been blindsided by the Holy Grail of ponders and it fades before it can be put into hard copy (words on paper). The reason? Great ideas/ponders lose meaning when an attempt is made to capture for future reading. In other words, a great ponder must remain unstructured, without bounds or permanence. So the shape shifting thoughts are best savored and kept as unwritten thoughts. Hang in there, I think I'm trying to say something here.

The best stuff remains inside your synapses, in limbo. The "cloud" of the mind. Stuff like the formula for cold fusion, or molecular transportation. It's all in there ... somewhere.
Now THAT, I say THAT is a serious ponder Boy!

And you got sunshine? Whoopee! At last! Glad to see proof of the event. That man always looks smashing, doesn't he?

How soon are you headed our way? The rain seems to have passed on through and we're due for a warmup over the weekend.

Don & Sandee are due back today or tomorrow. It could be a 3-way mini-C.

Cheers!
Sue

Timarti, it's good to hear from you again. How's your girl?

Re: the TT -- Martin has to have a single unit. I know you get more living space for the money in a TT, and I hauled one or another for about 20 years, but the Class A is his strong preference. Since he does all the driving (so far)....

How is the charkha coming along? Or rather how are you getting along with it? I've got mine out where I can stop by several times a day and spin a few yards. It all adds up.

Cheers!
Sue

Maybe he should try "mulling things over". That usually works for me.

Is that what precedes a good ponder? I just go directly into ponder mode.

Cheers!
