If it wasn't for Earlene I'd let your calls just roll over to voice mail. Actually we were on the phone with my son s I have my phone rigged to roll over to Earlene's phone when mine is busy. (Samsung Galaxy S-3, think about it Steve.)

I was telling Denise about all the fun we were having on the phone tonight and she definitely wants to meet the two of you as soon as is possible.

Too much fun can be had by all involved.

Awning fixed, toilet fixed, slide fixed now wheel bearing fixed so what more can I spend money on? Oh I know, when I went to pick it up at shop today, battery dead. Seems the chassis battery's are the originals and long over due to be replaced. Did I mention how much I like to spend money?

Have a great evening muteys!

Cell phones are great social separators. You can set a phone up to ring on selected numbers, and all others roll over to voice mail to get a message: "Leave your name and number. Don't bother me with a message. I'll return your call if I think you are important enough." Beep .....

Well, what's money for anyway? And isn't it just fun to hand it over to someone else?!

I'm glad, however, that all seems to be fixed and ready to go. For now. Sleep well!

Cheers!
Sue

Smart Aleck! I've not been to your apt to know that, but today's cars don't produce a lot of CO. A good way to kill gophers and moles is to hook a hose to your tailpipe and stick the other end into a recently dug tunnel opening. BUT!!! You have to find a vehicle without a catalytic converter for it to work. An old farmer taught me that trick when I wasn't so old, but after cars started having catalytic converters installed.

So ends today's lesson.

We haven't left yet. Saturday morning the sea parts for our first family exploit in the Beaver. Mort is already in tha coach waiting with baited breath for our departure.

Everything from the Dynasty fit into the Beaver with a couple of sq.ft. to spare. I was surprised.

Sorry to hear you and your bride to be aren't feeling well. There has been more than enough health and family issues befalling the Mutants of late. It would be nice to read some clear sailing on all counts for us all!

Retirement

As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world.
It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of seniors who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither.

Harold Schlumberg is such a person. Mr. Schlumberg says, "I've often been asked, 'What do you old folks do now that you're retired?' Well...I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and whiskey into urine. I do it everyday!"

Barb, I know people in this group, besides me, that don't have to hook the hose up to an exhaust pipe, they just have to put the hose in the ground and blow through it.

I'm paying close to $4 a gallon on the road right now. I think I'll just call some of you to "blow smoke."

Morning Mutey Family. Looks like today might get to be the day I finally get the beans and squashes planted! Had such a bumper crop of weeds when I got home from my week at girls camp and then it rained and rained and watered them so well, I couldn't get the tiller in to turn them all under so i covered them all with spoiled hay hoping to smother them....so we shall see how that goes this year! If I don't get them in now, they won't mature in time before the frost kills them. Dunner... the lemon drop melons are going in today and I'll be thinking of you!
