We have 4 of Rocky's distant cousins that travel with us. They also spent their former life on a beach -- on the Columbia River in southern WA state. They, however have to work for their ride. They hold down the corners of Lily's puppy pad. Does that make me a slave owner? It's not a glamourous job, but somebody has to do it... and in a calm and unobtrusive manner.

Does Rocky have a job?

We lost out beloved "Clara" last month. She was 18 years old.
She was a Beagle / Cocker Spaniel mix, with the short legs of the Beagle and the longer hair of the Cocker Spaniel. Her bark still wakes me up in the morning.

Things should be straightened out by the fall.

Fall and winter in the South are not bad so we are looking to get going then.
The daughter in Louisiana just moved to a place on the river near Folsom with some acreage. She says there is plenty of room for the Motor Home. So we should be going there near Thanksgiving, baring anything else happening.

Cabin fever is relieved by day trips when possible, nothing like we thought we would be doing. RV microwave replacement and mainteance has been the addenda there.

Enjoy the summer.

"What a long strange trip it's been" is certainly true.
Dang!

Sorry to hear of you troubles, and hope you and DW come out on top of things soon. And sorry to hear of your pupper too!

Hopefully you can bust out to the river and quietly mutate a while.

Dave

Oldme - so good to hear from you again. We "long strange trippers" need to hang together.
Sorry for the slow down with DWs health, but you have the mutants pulling for you so - snap snap - you will be in La before ya know it.

Keep in touch and let us know how things progress. All good things brother.

Rocky? A job? Sure! Security.

He is the original stealth device. Who would know he is on patrol?

He sits very quietly where ever you put him. He is normally in the front window, but puts in an occasional stint on the picnic table.

He also serves as a rock, to be thrown if required. Self-guided, of course.

Possessing rocks is not slavery! They are rescue rocks. Saved from potential rock crushers. Rocks know that concrete is NOT a career!

A perfect weekend at home. Washed the trailer, created outside storage for the stinky slinky on the bumper and sat ouside under the pine trees looking out over the fields doing my best Rocky imitation, 72 degrees, sunshine and just enough breeze to keep the bugs away. I'm trying not to remember that there are only about 5 days like this a year, lol. Got lucky on Friday. Hugh thunderstorm with heavy rain and wind that lasted only about 10 minutes, but a few miles away a small town on the lake lost a huge number of big trees snapped like matchsticks and much damage, must have been a micro burst. Our hydro was out for 24 hours. Not a problem for us, we finally got a generator which is hooked into our electrical panel.

So, it was perfect, you were lucky, your rig is clean, your gennie is golden, you are happy, and Rocky got an honorable mention. And not a single word about rope lights.

What could be better?

Even though one is wearing concealing make-up, note the resemblance? Stoned crashed through Dunner's bedroom window while he was rocking the dunes several years ago. Stoned was not seen rolling down the street with Dunner's POJ Compaq laptop, dig-it-all camera and dig-it-all camcorder, and may have consumed a mouse during his clandestine infestation of Dunner's house.

I Segway'd up and down the street and could not find any place where Stoned used to reside. He's assigned permanent guard duty at my bedroom door. Stoned is not eligible for a get out of jail card or pardon.

BTW, the cops that investigated were not the CSI type. They couldn't find their own finger prints.

^^^ Dunner and Dave - there's one in every family. Hopefully Stoned has settled down some and behaving more like big brother Rocky.

Ok, get out the scales.... and let's see who is big brother. Dave has to post Rocky's weight first. Dunner's rule... or first liar doesn't stand a chance.

I have no scale! That went with the S&B with the deal being, if they didnt want the scale, they couldnt buy the house.
My Dad got rid of an old piano the same way!

Rocky is about half the size of my fist. I guess about 9 OZ. Stoned looks bigger and has a rougher surface. It will smooth out with age, a few eons or so. So Stoned is obviously just a young pup, but a bigger chip off the boulder.

Wonder if they will recognize each other.

Rocky and Stoned are ageless for all intents and purposes. The size and weight tell us nothing of their age. Which reminds me of a recent ponder.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are? Such a relative thing and within the RVM space time continuum - has no bearing on the mutant or the mutant machine.

I get the sense that many mutants are old souls - wise beyond their years and young in thought and deed. This is why the journey is the destination. Time and space are of little concern and quality of thought, travel, and experience are The Focus of the RVM.

May all RVMs journey young in spirit, mind and health.

Ta-ta-Tut-ta-daaaa...... Stoned just weighed in at 3Lbs - zero ounces. I don't know his nationality, but he is some kinda of can. American. African, Mexican, Canukcan, maybe even Jamaican as he does have a tan. I think he is pushin' 6.5 mil.
