Update on Annies' dad, Tom.
Moving in the right direction. With a good distance to go.
He had a small seizure at home, followed by a grand mal seizure once under doctors care.

He has regained use of his right hand and arm - was able walk short distances using a walker and knows who people are. He does have periods of confusion but is largely lucid.

He has a good appetite and feeling much better. He is out of ICU and receiving rehab in the hospital. He may be going to a rehab facility - or may get to go back home. Only one day of rehab behind him so much remains to be seen.

And my gal... she is happy with news of dad's recovery and felling much better herself. Whew...

Thanks to all you STMS for you Ommmms and support!
Gotta run.

Have fun on the rainbow today. And I don't know if there is space or not - but Rockport is on. Give Drifters RV Resort a call and come join the other 5 or 6 or 7 mutants there - 11/14 - 11/21.

NOTE: Jim and Ginny - I didn't reply to your post or was it email - as I was going to call you and got busy. Sorry you can't make it. Will try to call later today.

Steve and Annie

I attach it to my compressor and hose that we carry in our tool bay. Wayne would attach it to the hose attached to the fitting on the coach a compressor. But he doesn't have room for a stand alone compressor and can't afford one.

Steve, Wayne can afford one. He is just frugal. Some may use other words.
And that bay is waaaaay to clean and orderly and not full. Work on that.
Glad Tom is on the mend and sweet Annie is back up to full speed.

We are having mutieful weather here also. Right now 65 degrees. Maybe see 73 today, 72 tomorrow, 77 Monday, 81 Tuesday then the cold front comes through and it goes down into the low 60's upper 50's, but still nice.

Earlene was of the family of fisher persons who threw the sheepheads back also. They are actually good eating. Just about everything out of the ocean is edible.

Sparky needs a Sparkles partner.

You go that right on affordability! All those gauges, lines, and fittings must cost a fortune. I just use the on-board compressor, and for checking I use the dual-headed truckers gauge. I check the air pressure before every departure, even if only stopping for one night. Another thing I can't afford is air pressure monitors. I did try the TST once, but could never keep air in the tires when they were installed, just on the TOAD.

Besides, why go through all the trouble of hooking all that stuff you use up to a compressor just to check air pressure. A dual headed gauge, coupled with the on-board compressor and dual headed chuck works simply well.

It is what it is, and then it is what we make of it.

Agree with Dave on this all around. I'm not FT and could pack more in that space for a weekend outing.

That is a very old picture. Don't have time to open the bay now and take another. Also - don't have time to pick everything up off ground that will fall out when I open the door. Give me a break guys. I know you know me but geesh - how stupid do you think I am.... don't answer that. Lol...

You at least need enough in each bay to make sure that nothing can move, and so you can experience the "oh, so that's where that darn thing was"!

Guarantee: nothing, but nothing, is gonna move in our bays! 😚

Oh, and I am inventorying each crate and bag before putting them in the Bella. Too many of those "oh that's where that darned thing is!" moments in my past!

As they say here in Texas.... if'n you don't like the weather - give it an hour. By the time we get to Rockport it may be nothing but sunshine...
