I got the makings of four do-it-yourself rope light kits; does that count?

Look who wandered into the RVMdom. Tell is what ya don't have in your RV and don't miss - and you can be RVM40. (about time you showed up).

We can work on stage 2 with ya later - focusing on making the journey the destination. But I suspect you do that now anyway.

Whadda ya say - are your RVM material? We would live to have in our curiosity of RV Mutants.

Yeah!
Give us a yup, yes, yea, okie dokie, or a thumbs up and you will be the honorable RVM40, with all the rights, privileges, teasing, and poking that may come with it.

Let the Journey be Your Destination

1- Flat screen TV - the old one works or did the one time we turned it on to see if it and the VHS still worked.
2- Slides
3- holder up thing-a-me's that keep the queen bed elevated when DW wants to get stuff under or out from under the bed. I figures if she could get under there easier we'd be hauling way more stuff we wouldn't use so the saw off is good. She now has to find me to act as a prop stick.
4- colour back up camera, seldom use the B & W which is already there and sorta still working; kinda almost anyway.

I'm sure there's more but I will have to think about it some.

You are sooooo qualified, Possum!

Kong makes a dog toy beaver that isn't stuffed but has a Velcro opening on it's stomach where it can easily be enhanced with a bit of Fiberfill stuffing. We have 2 plus extra squeakers as they are Lily's favorite toy. You can get them at Petsmart.

Or just send them to Sena to play with, maybe dismantle?
Sena will occasionally dismantle stuffed toys, but she typically leaves that pleasure to her assistant Lily. We would be happy to hold a curiosity of RVM mascots.

At last check, the phone was still dead.

Sena often helps me get good deals and special perks. I refer to it as "Playing the monkey card".

I really don't use a phone much and they reactivated my old phone. Since there is no convenient Go Wireless store up here in Seattle, my plan is to wait until I head south to replace the dead phone.

Hey Barb,

Thank you for the idea, yeah we could modify a dog toy no problem, the next petsmart we see we'll stop and take a look of course..

We have under the bed storage as well but no struts to hold it up so we really dont use it much, for anything, maybe if I find something I wish to keep secret I could put it there, but my luck the DW would find it anyway.

I do have to use a pair of vise grips to hold one of the bay doors up, cause one of the struts dont work like its suppose to, so one of these days I'll have to get around to working on that, but right now I'm really busy just being retired.

Cheers !!!

When we cleaned out the house there was a plastic snowshovel handle. Just the handle, the blade broke in about 1987. Dang near threw it out. It now props up the bed storage.

What I aint got I dont need, but I totally needed a broken shovel handle.

The next time the DW wants a end of bed holder upper thing-a-me I will have to borrow your shovel handle.

Borrow? Sure, RVM40.
But not for sale. Will not even trade it for rope lights.
