AZ and a GC II will definitely be in our planning. No question. ������
Don't forget those house-eating, RV-gobbling, purple-people-eating SINK HOLES. I just watched a documentary on sink holes. Florida is a virtual honeycomb. The entire state could cave in! Get the heck outta there!

Mel,

I propose a side bet. I bet Florida sinks before Vancouver Island gets hit with the big one. How much are you wanting to wager?

Ha I've got some beach front property here in Arkansas, can make you a good deal! It's kind of a work in progress, the beach will come as soon as the " New Madrid Fault" makes its big move and the Mississippi River becomes the new East Coast! Get it while it's cheap!

Y'all are the best! It's why I got on here yesterday. I thought to myself "I have got to shake this attitude before my family buries me in the backyard..." And then I thought of the mutants. Today I'm using all the ooommmsss, probiotics and likely some late afternoon alcohol to shake this crabby patty moment. Having a jumbo shrimp boil at our camper later to say bye to our friends here. Can't wait to see what our sticks and bricks friends think of good ol' 1-ply when they need to use the bathroom.
In other news, our daughter Morgan finally taught herself how to whistle so every time she woke up in the night she had to whistle the next line of "on top of spaghetti..." The dogs loved it. A 5-year-old Whistling has an added bonus in an RV. That's going in the next blog. Btw- y'all keep talking about little boys and missing them. My dad always said my sister and I acted so rotten we were the sons he always wanted and never had.
Wasn't it tales from Lake Wobegon that said welcome to our hOme where the men are strong, the women beautiful and all our children are above average? Well Canton, Ga (my hometown) boasts it's where the men are men and the women are too. Haha. Yall are the best!

I had multifocal lens implants installed when the cataracts were removed. One eye is set for distance and near, the other for distance and mid-range (as in computer screen viewing). Only need glasses for the tiny print. So how do I count? Oh, and I have soft contacts that correct my astigmatism, tho I rarely wear them.

You just reminded me of our flight from California to mainland Japan and then to Okinawa. The flight from CA to JP is around 14 hours. Sitting behind us was a young lad, who happened to be the son of the Sergeant Major sitting in the same row- my next command Sergeant Major, that was in the process of learning how to whistle. Close your eyes, listen to your mind imitating tweet, tweet, tweet, and then imagine 14 hours of it.

And you thought I was annoying!

Nope, I'm betting on Florida sinking first. Let's start a pool, though.

When I was down in the dumps, recovering from surgery for an open fracture of my right knee cap, this bunch of STMs literally pulled me up out of the doldrums and got me laughing and looking forward to life after surgery. They were my social connection and lifeline for the 2 and 1/2 months I was home-bound. I'm glad you've reconnected with the Mutants. This bunch is always here for you!

And we all the better for it... you are indeed an A #1 Mutant and were missed during last hiatus.

Just wait till you meet this group at GC 1.2 Redux. It will be a Grande Curiosity of the Highest Order!

You lurkers out there... get your RVM number right here. Tell us what your Rainbow Rider - trailer - 5er - tent - doesn't have and you don't miss - declare The Journey is the Destination, the contact HerbandBarb via PM and join us in Hot Springs at Catherine's Landing - this April 15 - 22nd for a Curiosity you'll never forget!

I guess that threating to choke the beejeeses out of him was out of the question.

I miss my RV!! I'm having a hard time deciding what to move into next.

OTH, I'm gonna LOVE my new boat

Thinking about pulling this up to Catherines Landing and staying in a YURT.
