Evening mutants. Been a long day. It amazes me how long it can take to get a new cell phone. Today we went to Verizon and opened Annie's account. She had been an extra line on the AT&T account I have had since 1999. OMG. It started out as Southwestern Bell - Became Cingular and is now AT&T. To borrow a phrase from the stranger among us, Old Me (and Gerry Garcia) "What a Long Strange Trip it's Been."

So despite having made the purchase online last night - entering most everything to keep her number and arranging for and verifying the phone was ready for pickup at the store - it was still hours which seemed like weeks to get in and out of there.

And of course no trip to a phone would be complete without a new gadget. Annie spotted it and now we have it. When you see a little light show at the picnic table - as you walk toward it - you will hear some appropriately set and leveled music coming from the JBL Pulse.

Just checked in with Herb and Barb - they are in Ruidoso and have poor reception. That's my favorite part of Texas!

Today I set poles to get new cabin a minimum of 15' above ground. If you look about 18" below the roofline of neighboring cabin you can see the waterlineClick image for larger version

Fantastic, Tim! When is the grand opening? What shall we bring? Ladders? Hammers? Food?

Hey Dave. Maybe we can make our way up to Tims to watch and take pictures. Kind of like going to the zoo.

Crazy thing is, I wish I could still do that stuff. The damned oxygen hose keeps getting in the way though!

Snow in Montana, winter warnings?
Earthquake in Napa, California
Heat index here today will be 110
Tropical storm four in the east coast.
Flooding all over
Physical issues, minor and major
And some of us deal with unspoken emotional issues, too

Sure wish there was a weekly roll call for mutants to check in and say, we are ok... We are here.
Worry about each one of you in the strange group we have.

Thanks to those using Rvillage, we can see where you are.....
Now tell us How you are, just a quickie will be fine..... Here or wherever.....

Good morning....... Be careful, have a great day....



Diane is the original FTSFM........... (Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant, #64) and is retired, duh!

The above spoken in a soft hushed monotone voice so as not to spook the woodland creatures who steadfastly toil away.

Tim, are you nuts or just trying to build a place to squirrel your nuts away for a rainy day?

I'z present, Teacher!

Still squatting by the Columbia, enjoying sunny, 80* days and cool nights. Don is making great progress, but it's still baby steps and it takes lots of us to keep up with his needs and wants.

Next?

Yep you guys are funny, but it's really nice to think you think I toil away like a forty year old. A little closer look you'll see a 40 something and a 30 something doing most of the work!

As for as grand opening, well this is a project in planning, meaning as we have time to work on it we plan how to build it. Example, a flood this past winter floated off 10 of our poles that we had piled up but not tied up. So we redesigned what we will build with the 16 remaining poles !

Good morning everyone!
Diane count me present and tired but waiting on 2 grand kids to get here after church!

Drinking coffee by the lake, outside our very wet MH. It's been raining a lot, but rain on the roof is music to sleep by.

Went to an amazing quilt store yesterday. My wifey spoiled me with a new quilting toy (self-healing rotary cutting mat on a lazy Susan), and we got some really cute fabric for curtains for the coming grand baby's room. We found out it is a girl!

All in all, life is good!
