Hands up as time is called- How many words was that Wayne?
You're askin' for trouble. I'll sic Steve on to you, both of them.

You typed 233 "A's" by holding down the a key on the keyboard, but including your words, question marks, hyphens, etc., it was only a total of 279 words. If you had taken the time to push the button for each "a" it would have taken you 3.9571428571429 minutes to type that at 70 wpm.

Consider this: It is a known fact, by many but not all, that the splashes from the water in the toilet have been know to extend out to six (6, count them 6) feet.

Did you need to know that?

I'm so fond of this group of STM's.

Diane's pups, along with all y'all's other canines, have me hankerin' to have another dog. It's been cats with me for years, and the last 2, one in particular, left a huge hole in my life. I'm not sure any other feline could fill it.

Diane, that new baby looks like she's fixin' to tell you something. Does she intend to be The Boss I wonder, or is she requesting removal of her (really cute) clown's ruff?

I know ownership involves work and patience, but the paybacks are so immediate and bountiful. Maybe next spring....

Cheers!
Sue

Remember Sue, they own you the minute they walk into your heart.

The funniest thing we watch is our tiny three pound toothless Yorkie, barking her outrage at the 80 pound German Shepard across the street.

Once you got you gloves and socks off how did you count the rest of the 259 words?

Great way to come but when you get to HWY 365, in Sour Lake, you turn right or south and come right into Port Arthur. Jeannie and I will be waiting for you this fall.

If you and Earleen would come it would be nice.

The more the merrier. We have space for about 10 units, on hard ground covered with grass, but they would all have to share the same water line so that would mean fill your fresh water tank from the line but use your pump for your unit. I can't see everyone filling their tanks at the same time so I forsee no problem. I do see a lot of fun and talking.

We are probably headed over to Pensacola some time, then points East/North. It's a possibility.

Ah! No problem grasshopper. I have a 4 way valve and only use one. Three others could hook up at the same time. We may have to put together a shower schedule for water pressure. Or, all use one shower at the same time.

Hang a bar of soap from a string and everyone can just spin around.

Oh, how we'll I know this one! I drowned a cell phone in the MH commode just after getting the call from my friend Arlene that we needed to take her DH to the ER on the night he came down with Guillian-Barre Syndrome 4 months ago, and it almost took his life.

BTW, I got word this week that he is finally off the ventilator and is moving to the next stage of rehab. He will have to relearn everything physical. Thankfully his mental abilities remained intact. Thank you for all your prayers. They worked!

Wow, this looks like another Midi-C in the making. Who else wants to join in the fun? Southeast Texas in say, mid-late October?

How many rigs did you say your place can handle, Bob? Do you have plenty of extension cords?

Seriously, is there an RV park nearby? I can boondock, but I know most STMs prefer to be connected.

Earlene asked me to post this:

"I just stood on my sore foot experiencing excruciating pain while preparing Ina Garten's most excellent lemon cake recipe which entailed grating the rind of six lemons, extracting more than a cup of fresh lemon juice, whipping butter and sugar, etc., etc., etc., and all I ask is for a magic prince or pauper (I'm not particular) to clean my queendom. Do I have a volunteer??? Noooooo, my princely pauper is too busy mutating with his new friends to bring order to my establishment. He's forcing me to resort to blackmail. Oh, Herb? Do you want to hear the latest curb appeal tale?

The cake is for bribery at the dentist's office."

Now I'm offended. Without question or asking I cleaned the kitchen after her mess, and she does make a mess when she cooks, and she sent me this to post AFTER I did all that.

DW, you just wait! ya'ear!

p.s., then I went in after she made the topping, messing up the kitchen again and cleaned up. What's a man s'posed to do. She'll be sorry.

Go for it! Not much in life is more fun and holds more promise than a new pup. Here's our newest Springer Spaniel, Ranger.
