Okay, Diane a bit about us:

Both are retired; well, sorta. My wife was a teacher for special ed for 30+ years. She absolutely loved what she did. She just struggled some about where things were heading. After a little over 1 year of retirement, she was asked to come back and accepted a one year contract. So, she is actually working, leaving little time (for now) to fully enjoy the MH. But, we do what we can around her schedule.
I am retired from Honeywell, Process and Control division. As many have experienced, our jobs were sent overseas, forcing my hand to retire. Let me say I have no regrets about it....nor am I upset that it happened. Honeywell was very good to me for those 30+ years...putting a roof over my head, food on my table, and paid for my education. Looking back, it was the best thing I could have done, and the best thing for me! It allowed us to move forward with our journey, altho paused for now.
We are blessed with two wonderful son's, one in Dallas, Texas area and the other in Bend, Oregon with our DIL, 3 year old grandson and 8 month old granddaughter.

First MH, and we LOVE IT and all that it offers. We hope to upgrade one day, but for now are content with what we have.

Thanks again for the acceptance and welcomes.

Don and Dale.
My DH worked for Honeywell after they bought Allied Signal, who bought Bendix who bought King Radio... who he first started for after he graduated from Wichita State... years ago... He now works at Garmin.

Yes, Martha. For quite a few years, they were on a buying frenzy it seemed. Never knew what or who was next on the plate. Worked with some mighty fine people over the years. So much talent gone.

Thanks Diane. Please tell your husband "thanks for his service". SALUTE ! !

And, thank you for your caring to teach. That, IMHO, has got to be one tough job, but can be so rewarding, too.

Yes we are in Phoenix (Glendale). Warren, Ohio is my home town, but moved here when I was like 4 years old so it's all I really know. Getting harder and harder to deal with the summer heat, which is one reason for the MH. We want to spend some summers where it is a bit cooler, and closer to the grand kids is our hopes.

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
Along with everyone else, Kate & I welcome you to Rainbow Land and the Mutant Menagerie! A finer bunch of sick, twisted mutants you will not find anywhere.

Indeed, we hope you can make the Grand Curiosity in Arkansas in April. That will be our first time to meet RVMutants face to face. We're in west Texas, but it'll be worth an 11 hour drive just to meet Nola and Annie. The things they put up with .... :tongue clucking:

So happy you found us! You're part of a real family here.

Melanie

Looks dangerous. I'd approach only with extreme caution.

Didn't you have a mom and sisters? Geesh... grew up first 14-15 years in an all girl home 'cept for dad... we all used the shower curtain rod to dry our slingshots... not enough room in the MOHO to do that... sunshine is good for antibacterial control... what more can I say?
