Here, Barb! Over here! In the parking lot outside the dr.'s office. Just finished playing ketchup. (Sure is difficult w/o strings...got ketchup all over playin' it like a woodwind!).

Whatcha doin' today? My kayakin' friend here says she is READY to go! Me too, when we can fit it in. Not this week, though.

Painting class coming up and then my tai chi class begins. We're hoping to see Don & Sandee tomorrow afternoon, but they're pretty busy getting ready to hit the road Saturday morning.

Have a good one!

Cheerio
Sue

Ah! What we don't do for the Grands. Last summer we were asked to babysit out in Calif. while the kids went on a 25th Anniversary "trek." So instead of taking the MH, we saved $1500 on air fair by purchasing a 2013 Lincoln MKX. Go figure. At least it has curb appeal.

You people and your newfangled puny little screens! I'd need a stylus to hit the keys. One of my fingers would cover four letters. Possibly the gals have loooong fingernails that are good at hitting individual keys. Those "nails" scare me, especially when a nurse at the ophthalmologists office gets near my eyes and attempts to administer drops.

Well Barb, some of us have to take care of mundane things like banking, and hauling old electronics to Best Buy, and sorting out boxes of 'what the heck did we keep that for?'. I will have an entirely new perspective in the next home. It doesn't have a basement, where one could easily stack boxes of JUNK, so I can stick to this new resolution.
Then when we get to take a break, we can check in here to find another 2 pages of reading has somehow materialized even tho' there is only 1 person here. Now how does that happen?

I hope everyone has a fun ride on the rainbow today.
Yup....that's the way to do it, Barb.

My Dad had someone take down a half rotten tree on his property yesterday. He kept talking about the steps to clean up the debris, salvage the usable wood....etc, etc. And how long it would take if he kept after it a little each day.
So, finally I said it might go faster if I helped him. I explained how I could fit into his "steps." Turned me down flat. Then after a while he comes over to the MH, knocks on the door, and says, you know maybe you can help me. This atheist, was like "Halyaluya!" (of course I can't spell halyaluya)

So we go over there and work our butts off, and you know. ..I could tell he was happy he changed his mind.
Tomorrow, we'll go at it again.

Anyway, it's a good lesson for me. .....there's 2 other half rotten trees on this property. ..that I'll likely have to deal with by myself in the future.

Anyone else have a favorite shoreline resting place? Would love to camp weeks at a time next to a beautiful waterway that has lots of traffic to watch. Give me your best locations.

One of our's was camping on the Homer Spit up in Alaska. Windshield full of water views. Water about 150' away.

Someone should write a book. "The 100 best waterside RV lots in America"
That is a great idea....course I have none to contribute. The Big Muddy from either New Orleans, or Saint Louis. ...well. ...it's a bit muddy

Love this. ...I was thinking if it ever got hot enough around here I'd go rent a canoe, and take Charlotte (in her life jacket, naturally) out with me. She's the least likely to drown of the 3 of them, if I capsize the thing.
I've done it before. ...a few years ago....just me alone....no dogs. It was nice. ....no capsizing then, fortunately.

Garry Oaks and Oak Bay Rich Biddies

Barb, about Oak Bay and their ridiculous $10,000.00 fine for cutting down a Garry Oak. A buddy of mine lived in Oak bay and his old old Garry's were starting to drop huge branches on this so he applied for a removal permit.

The old biddy next door heard about the application and went around Oak bay getting a petition signed stopping council from approving the removal application. She got the r3equired 500 and council nixed the trees being removed.

Fast forward six months to the middle of a wet and windy (very windy) winter and guess what trees split down the middle and did a few hundred thousand dollars damage to said old biddy's "Historical" house. Her insurance adjuster showed up at my buddy's place to get his insurance information because her insurance company was going to approach my buddy's insurance company to sue for damage repairs. My buddy showed the adjuster the paper work of his application, the old biddy's petition and the refused application for removal application from Oak Bay council.

Needless to say the rich old biddy is a few hundred thousand dollars poorer because her insurance refused to pay for the repairs as she was the root cause of the damage.

Justice served, n'est ce pas?

I love stories with happy endings.

It seems to me that you only get a RVM number IF you meet the qualifications of mutantdom, which, if said requirements are met then that would qualify them as a mutant, allowing them a RVM number. This all falls back on the older pretext of what came first, the "chicken or the egg", said case here being similar. I would seem to think we should err on the side of caution, for without the mutant we would not have our RVM number..?

However, there is the other side of the issue; can you drive your home without a driver's license, or do you need to be licensed first? Well, obviously can drive your home without the license provided you don't mind the occasional detour; go to jail - do not pass go.

I hope this helps clear things up..
