Sue and Martin, Don and Sandee, Marty and Bob -- that door slamming applies to you, too. Y'all hurry on down. I know Di and Larry are south of here and will bring some glorious sunshine up from Padre with them. I guess we'll see most of you on Friday.

Yep windows open last night.... Air already on today as it is 77 degrees inside... Nice breeze outside. But warm and sunny..

Yesterday there were 10 windsurfers on the beach all day, enjoyed talking to them... And fascinated watching them.... I woukd try that
Noticed real surfboarders out there today.... I have tried that before...

We will be up on Thursday..... So glad you got restaurant names for us.....

Who knew?

Hey you other kayakers, have you seen this? Folbot Folding Kayaks - Unfold New Adventures

For what I spent on my yak and all the stuff to carry it, I could have bought a Citibot. It fits in a duffle bag and only weighs 23#!

They've been making them since the 60’s. There are some vintage models on eBay. If only I had known <sigh>

Well yes, folding kayak does have merit, but ... just how much time was deleted in that time lapse vid? I'm having memory flashbacks to the old days of assembling toys the night before Christmas. Left over parts? Nah, just a few. Hide 'em and the kids will never notice.

Thanks, Barb. I was hoping it was something I could use, so went and looked. They look super.

Not for me yet, though. I've been 'yaking where there are alligators and oyster beds and shallow waters. ("Oh my!") Neither canvas nor inflatables are safe there.

Besides, I've just invested in a Hullavator. Look that one up! I'm not trading kayaks till I've used that puppy at least once!!! I'm prepared to really love it.

🎼🎶 On the road again. 🎶 left Sikeston an hour ago, hoping for Texarkana for overnight. We'd wave at Little Rock and Hot Springs both, or even stop, but I don't believe any mutants are at home there, are there? Tim?

Cotton harvest seems to be drawing to a close in this part of MO. I hadn't realized how much cotton is grown here. I spin cotton and could be tempted to pick up some where it's been spilled, but have been warned not to. The fields are sprayed with a defoliant to make harvesting easier, and those of us of a certain age remember that as Agent Orange. Need I say more? Nope, not picking up a single boll!

A bit of light rain on the windscreen now. Martin requested some to wash away yesterday's bugs. It worked. He's good! 😉

Like all good mutants who attended the FEGC@CL - RVM1 bestowed "Stripes" upon us. He's been chilling in Bonita waiting for the day we go full time. That day has arrived.

Well after such success at running off those deer, our dogs are on hunting patrol. They are convinced we have deer everywhere, and when the door is opened, they charge out looking all over for those interlopers. They are funny to watch as they sniff where the deer have gone, and pace back and forth like they are going to save us all from the beasts.
We decided not to fence the back, as they seem to stay pretty close.
Does anyone know how to stop a terrier from digging after moles?
You would rather have moles??? Ok... well, the only way I know to stop them is to do grub control as that is what the moles are after, and if there aren't grubs, there won't be moles for the terrierists to go after.
