Oh Dear! So sorry to see that Annie's dad is having a bad time!
Sending happy healing thoughts and OM's their way. Good to have family so nearby, who can keep you in the loop.

Happy Birthday to Dave!

Thanks for more BD wishes, STMs!

Today there was Rock O Rama in Black Canyon City.
Our mascot, Rocky Granite, had been feeling down, pouting, and a bit crabby. So, we found a new friend to share his space. Her name is Alice "Candy" Onyx. Say hello!
She has a bright and shiny face. Hoping for propogation. 😳

Create but don't attach the mailing labels for each drop zone of your trip. Take it all to a trusted friend or family member. When ya get a hankering to change gears - have em mail you the right craft / hobby kit. When it arrives at "Coolest Campsite Ever" - carefully unpack it and load the box back up with the completed projects or works for another day and ship em back.

Just the next in a series of many RVM Circus of Life Rainbow Enhancement Services provided by RVM Central Temp to Perm Associated.

What a creative solution! Didn't know folks did that. Those Temps are as efficient as always, in spite of how busy they must be, what with having to move offices and all.

Martin says Annie's dad has taken a bad turn, but I haven't done ketchup, so I'll just say right now that I'm very sorry. Ommmms and all, seriously.

I like the front end on that train... no need for a separate snow plow!

I think they are getting along pretty well. Can't hear them. Must be whispering. 😳
Rocky's mood is better, and Alice is showing off her candy stripes.

Hey Russ!

You sparked my curiosity so I googled your train.

Virginia and Truckee Railway Motor Car 22 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Very interesting! But only a 120 gallon gas tank? What sorta mpg does she get? And will she run on unleaded or do they have to get special additives for her?

Thanks for today's history lesson. I'll have to come check it out next fall when I head west again.

Dave,

I can see a rememblence to bacon in the second picture of Alice. Do you suppose that is what first attracted Rocky's attention?

The candy-striped look of Alice attracted me, but I did see bacon in her eyes!
After giving Rocky his vantage point in our RV back in 97, he has been king of the Realm of Rocky. He is pleased to have company, and also has a glow and a gleam in his "daddy eye" about him.
I think Alice might be a slut.
