I can't even keep up these days... Lol ?! Doh!

But I can tell ya that we have met a little more than 20 mutants - and would love to meet em all. Of those we have met - you described them perfectly - warm and genuine - and I get the feeling those yet to be met are too - all y'all and y'all over there too...!

There are some long lost RVMs that I reach out to now and then by PM. You know who you are... Sometimes I get a reply and sometimes not. Sometimes a post is made. Sometimes I hear nothing back at all and that's ok. But once an RVM always an RVM. Whether ya post or not - or do or don't come around often - we are mutants and mutantness can't be washed off or tossed away. You can leave - but you are always welcome back. The RVMdom is home to all who knock.

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.

Sorry for your loss SylviaCub. Losing someone close is a difficult thing to go through.

I am just about to attend a "Celebration of Life" tomorrow for my Mom who passed away last Saturday.

X2 Les.
I was proud to officiate at "Celebration of Life" events for my Dad in 2000 and my Mom in 2012. It is such a dignified and warm gathering of folks that appreciated the joy of it all.

Best wishes, pal

Number Ni-ane! I read your original post and thought of the irony with the messed up dates of knowledge about employment and, I immediately started identifying with your post. Then of course before I could reply, I got distracted, and now you are calling us all to task, and I for one feel purtty lousy. But hey with such a cool number, Number Ni-ane, how could you quit?
I make posts and nobody says anything, so does everyone. Things get missed when there are so many talking all the time. It was not an intentional slight.
Cheer up. The rainbow awaits.

Thank you DP... I'm sorry for your loss as well.
Thanks to everyone else who responded too.

For the record... my youngest brother was 17 years older than me, Not really a baby bro... since I am the youngest of the all the siblines with 23 years difference between the eldest and me.

Anyway, thanks. Ya'll need a chat rather than a forum. (hosted is best)

For the person who asked what a 503 error was.... it's a server/database call error. Typically it's caused by too much traffic or connections to the database and your host chooses to throttle the connections.

Probably because of this thread.

Hello Sylviacub,

This is the first chance I've had to post since you have posted about your brother. I am so very sorry for your loss. But please understand that being 81 mutants strong some times a post can get lost. Sometimes when I check in I have 10 pages of catch up to read through, so please understand that those of us that know you will support you in all situations, you my dear are a mutant and to lose you would be a terrible loss so just understand that you are in our thought and prayers and that you are held in high regard.

Wishing you comfort and peace,

Jeff & Marcia

Judy Judy Judy he said in his best Cary Grant, peering from behind his Foster Grants
Number Ni-ane - I bur-eed Paaauuul....

Ya just never know what connections can be made here.....
-----------------
I think yer on to it - some days things get missed... But at the end of the day or rainbow or whatever - Ya know it's all about the love of RVing and not missing what our RVs don't have - and letting the Journey be the Destination.
We are just doing our best to make the world a little smaller and the chance of meeting an old friend on the road more likely. That's the spirit and the "ticket to ride."

So when something is missed or not picked up - as sometimes happens - I have come to find more than once that it was read and entered into the collective mutant conscience...
---------

Sylvia - I hope ya have a long run of sunshine and bright rainbows. I know a mutant - Dwayne - who could help y'all get the Cub rolling.... LOL.
Steve

Thanks for the anniversary wishes, everyone.

Sylvia--my condolences to you on the loss of your brother. Don't abandon the RVMs; most of us have had a few (or several) "unnoticed" posts. It's just the nature of a busy thread. I don't read or participate every day, so I miss a lot of stuff.

RVM#9 I haven't been on since Sunday when I last posted. I try to read every post, but was waiting til I got to the end to offer condolences on your loss. Losing a sibling is hard. Especially if you are close.

We survived the unlucky Friday the Thirteenth, with the full moon and the dreaded Solar Flares~~
