A couple Crisp quotes to ponder...

It's no good running a pig farm badly for 30 years while saying, 'Really, I was meant to be a ballet dancer.' By then, pigs will be your style.

Never!

Or, My work here is done..

That certainly wasn't the ponder response I expected. The ponder - what is art has been discussed throughout time. And you are indeed an artist. Maybe it's too early to ponder such a ponder. But in no way was I suggesting that.

Muti-dimensional - open minded mutants from the rainbow of course. Also it was a night class. Might have been an adult beverage consumed after class with the prof.. she was an extremely Havad and worldly intelligent. One of those folks who had been more places and seen more art and such before starting college than many see in a lifetime.

Good Morning everyone. I have been following this thread for sometime now and would very much like to join in the festivities. Why did it take so long? I don't know,, but my DW asked that once when it took me 5 years to ask her to be my wife. A bit slow I guess, but I get there. It's the journey...not the destination!


Yes, we do believe, in so many ways, that the journey is our destination. We are always looking forward to what that will bring. Each sunrise is a blessing and we travel through the day, giving thanks after sunset for reaching that destination....whatever and wherever that may be.
This is our first motor home so there were so many things we don't or didn't know we could have. ALL OF WHICH we really don't miss. We have the basics...which have proven to be all we really ever needed (and never realized it).
The one thing we both miss is our king size bed. I'm pretty much a flopper all night, so having that extra room for the DW is really missed in our queen bed!
Thanks in advance.
Kind Regards to all.
Don and Dale

Welcome to the RVMdom and life on the rainbow Don and Dale - RVM106...

We're glad you made the Journey onto the thread and into the bright light of the rainbow.

You may have heard we are having a Grande Curiosity in Hot Springs AR in April. What better way to experience the RVMdom than to join us there as well.... you'll be welcomed with open kimono...

Say hi everybody!

Welcome to our side of the rainbow Don and Dale. You will fit right in with this sick twisted bunch of mutants.....but we are an agreeable lot and we hang tight with each other.
As our Grand Poohbah so eloquently stated, we are having a grand curiosity of the highest order for a week in Hot Springs AR. At Catherine's Landing RV on beautiful Lake Catherine beginning April 15th. If you want to really understand what it is to be a Mutey, you and your bride should attend. You won't believe your eyes! PM or our Illustious Potentate Steve aka flaggship for details and space assignments.

BTW oh Illustrious One, I just emailed you the sheet. The temps at mutant central annex were too busy yesterday to get it out. Oh and please.... Let lady Di handle the artsy fartsy stuff, cause you will taint your image with all that ponticating of lofty concepts and ideas.

I too took classes like that for mid morning nap time to recover from the night before. Wasn't that what those classes were for??

Welcome aboard the Starship Rainbowrider Don and Dale. The crew mates are a tad weird but you end up with a really nice view of the universe.

Welcome to mutantdom Don and Dale. Your presence at the GC in Hot Springs would make it a more joyous occasion. Come for a day or stay for a week. We just want to see as many like-minded folks as possible during that week.

Again, welcome.

Okay fellow mutants, who is IN FLORIDA right now? OKmunky, my DW Mary Ann, and I want to organize a midi-C later this month or in early March.

We're mobile for a day trip. We can all meet at a central location (restaurant, bar/pub, park, etc.) We know Sue's checking out the ocean blue every other week and Boko is temporarily up north in the snow, but hey, it's time to arrange a group gathering. So chime in with your thoughts about place and date.
