Alert the temps!
New thingy for the RVM Lexicon: AIM.

Steve and Annie.....the term is "minimalism". But there is no quiz.
"AIM" for the Rainbow!

Sue and Martin, why must you pick sides? Sue, give Martin a bay or two on the port side? No rolling over!

Ah, no, not picking sides. Just keeping things together for ease of finding things. Maybe his tools will be heavy enough to balance my yarn? I'll have to keep the books in the center, though. 😙

Oh, minimalism ... Wish I could actually buy into that. You're right, of course, oh Grand Poobah. My AIM is often off in that respect. 😳

Sue - I found that I can pull the panel off the love seat bottom and have a nice bit of storage under there. And while we don't have walk around room with our bed, I got to looking and the space beneath the side "nightstands" is open. Nice bit of stuff space on both sides!

We are making stotage places where we didn't know spaces existed. Lol...

Yup, way to go! Martin is using the space under the couch. (I can't get the thing open anyway.)

Di - To be on the safe side - just send him over with the tools. We'll take some notes and go to Home Depot. When we're done, we'll come look at yours... lol...

Yep...used it today.

Topped off the tires (PSI lower due to cold temps), pulled in all the water hoses and stinky slinky, ready to get an early breakfast, pull the power plug, hook up the car and start our trek towards Rockport Saturday morning.

Hey, glad you're back and things are all better. We'll leave Monday morning, so be checking your rear view mirrors for us!

Save some bacon for us!

Come on down! The rain has stopped and all the locals are happy to see us Snowbirds. By Christmas they'll be wishing we would hurry up and leave. Of course they want us to leave our $ when we go.
Be advised that in Texas the term Snowbird is not used. We refer to our Northern visitors as "Winter Texans." Don't go callin' them thar people "Snowbirds," it is down rite unfriendly and rude.

Went fishing today. Two of us caught our limit of Flounder, and i caught one good sized Sheephead. They are all cut up nicely and stored properly. Pictures are in the camera but I'm to lazy to post them this evening. Fishing is going to get better after the next cold front on Tuesday.

Yep, all y'all wanderin' down to Rockport., bring a light jacket or sweater with you, and some long pants, if'n you are the pants wearer in the family.
