OMG, how right you are: Life is too short and unpredictable to wait. Somebody way smarter than me said, "Seize the day!"

Ok, I am SO curious to know what the "Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant" moniker really means and how the heck you got it. There has to be a story with that!

Healing thoughts coming your way, too. Ohmmmmmmmmm.....
Don't look now, but there is a Rainbow over your head.

She forgot to mention the drooling with her new SMILE...She's not toothless anymore, but she cannot whistle anymore, either!!

So here's the scoop - I looked this up - and in the world may be a stretch... as it's according to Texas Monthly Magazine - and all the joints were in... you guessed it... Texas.

BUT whether the rating is the world's or Only Texas best - that's still saying sumpin'...

And guess what else - Rockport Texas made the list too...

Hatfields BBQ & Blackjacks Beer Garden

See all 50 here.. http://www.texasmonthly.com/lists/50...q-joints-world

And come on down to the
FERVMPTDF&C&SFFTKP
And let's see what a Blackjack Beer Garden is... oh, and have some Q...

This question goes out to our in house Psychiatrist.

Is Steve quoting himself the same as speaking in second person?

Steve said this, then Steve added this where upon Steve answered with this. Lol

Love you brother, your one of a kind, well actually both of you!

Thanks Tim. So here's the thing - The Temps have been working on RV Mutant shorthand for us and a Mutant Post # footnote system. That way linking - annotating and enhancing previous posts will take up less space and thereby cut down on the number of pages to ketchup on...

But I'm am convinced that this thread has been good for some us... better for others. For instance, we when first met, you could never have strung such a post together!!

And btw - the feeling is mutual brother. :-)

Ok Mel, you asked for opinions, here's mine.

Given that things like tires and maintenance are somewhat the same, I would think the Newmar and Monaco would be at the top of my list.

#1 National -- Love the floors, but almost no closet space. Hard to fulltime in this one.

#2 Newmar -- more closets, nice floor plan, stained carpet needs to go.

#3 Monaco -- wish there was a floor plan, more stained carpet, is that a jackknife sofa? Lower mileage.

#4 Fleetwood -- only 34' long, nice floor plan but carpet must be bad as there are no pictures of it.

#5 HR -- this was a rental unit! Don't waste time looking.

#6 Fleetwood 37' -- if you don't love the decor there would be a lot to redo. So many mirrors, where's the smoke?

Mel - I have looked at your list - but can't really say. You might post in the Owners Forums for the models listed.

There is a Ford / Chevy thing between Cummins and Cat. I'm a Cummins fan others like Cats - both are good and both have years and models / with more or less issues. I can't tell ya which cause I don't know.

I like a bedroom slide cause they are usually a little small with and without them lol... but once you're asleep...

My advice at this time - keep your powder dry - until ya wear yourself out silly walking at Alvarado. :-)

And as for these folks questioning my sanity... one of them admittedly has a lifetime supply of Hawaiian Shirts and lives in Arkansas - the other has spent a long time sniffing diesel - and they have both joined us on this wacky thread... hmmm can we actually put much stock in their assessmemts.... ???

That does not require a Psychiatrist ... it requires a good editor to decipher!
