This coming winter? Guess it is not too early to plan. First, gotta peek at the Farmer's Almanac to see where the best weather pattern will be. Then count the bands on wooly worms to determine just how cold it will be. Find an area of likely safe squatting. Next locate the house of someone in that area who is going to be gone all winter and sneak into their driveway after they leave. Put out chicken wire fence in the yard to keep rabbits out of survival garden. Inform neighbors of my security service dogs for hire. They pay for food and keep dogs in their houses.

Initial search thus far is pointing to Plano, TX as a possible squatting site.

Just come on down now and follow us down to Texas City. While Wayne is out and about this summer - we can move into his yard with Bonita and the Moonrover. Figure it will take em till spring to get rid of us.... we'll have squatters rights.

Well Dave - to seriously answer the question of where we will winter. We still don't know. We think RGV is practical - but having a hard time with that decision. So honestly - still working on that but do need to resolve it soon. you will be among the first to know!

Stand by!

Thanks Herb! But.... I don't think Viva Terlingua is far enough south for us... You were brave enough to winter here in DFW and I would never do that! LOL. It would be hats to stop there - when warmer sunshine is a few 100 miles further south. But if Jerry Jeff Walker shows up - give me a call!

After the crazy winter we had here BBNP ought to be a snap. That being said we will probably make some trips to Corpus during that time as well. We have friends there as well. Hey here is a thought we can both hang out in Texas City too. I know where Wayne lives. Lol he has a great shade tree in the back too!

All I need now is a set of GPS coordinates. We have extra long sewer hoses to reach though his bathroom window. Bet he has a keen BBQ grill out on the back porch. I'll drag along a few bags of charcoal and dried cow patties as fire starter.

We have some friends that wintered in Corpus last year - and the strange winter had them hunkered down in the 5er far too much. I would love to give Rockport or Port Aransas a winter chance but can't see going full time and having a lousy winter at my own doing. Sure I can't control the weather - or go to Central America - but I can do as much as I can to be warm... And comfortable.

I'll get a macerator so we pump it uphill and into the bathroom window - - we can just put the business end of the hose in the tub.

Herb says there is a tree we can bleed goats from and dig a pit in the back yard. There is nothing like cooking a goat in the ground with a fire on top. We can probably do something similar with a shark or two we catch off the TC dike.

I'm looking forward to this....

On May 3rd, we got a letter from Hub's employer that they were extending the date to August 31. Dang it... why didn't they send that the Wednesday before?

2. Garden Prep/planting/care. Because we were expecting a "lean" summer I prepped a larger garden and have been working to put everything in.

3. RV - still sits crossways of our driveway... in incomplete repair. I think I'll buy a cattle prod to help the hubs get motivated.

Anyway... I'm alive and well... mostly.
Hey stranger - thanks for checking in... We miss hearing from ya and ya know as a single digit mutant you have certain responsibilities and obligations to check in now and then... We miss ya and tell hubby to get that Cub ready and rolling.

More importantly - sorry to hear about baby bro. That's a tough one. Ya know your mutant family is here for ya with healing Ommmsss and energy of all shapes and sizes.

Take care and don't stay gone so long!

But....maybe not. Maybe so.

You?

Dave... You want to go to Colorado in the winter? I thought snowbirds went to where it is warm in the winter, not cold and snowy....
