Daddy planted his as close to 3/17 as possible. Dark o the moon is good for any crop that develops below ground, but I'm not sure he followed that.

I stayed as far away as possible at that time of year! I was a lousy trainee!

I don't like mudding anything in! 'Course then it gets too late before I realize it's already dried and warmed up. Early crops? Not my forte!

Great pics and descriptions of paradise, Sue!
I didn't know that a pub could get overstayed.

Wayne, I believe the fix will be easy. Just think about the situation in a whole. when they installed the JACKS, the weight sensors were setup incorrectly & in reverse. The way I see it, the right side was setup for Earlene's weight and not your weight. So, for a quick fix, just move your lounger to the left side of the coach and sleep on the left side of the bed!!! But just be careful, because if it doesn't equal out, Earlene will become FLAT Earlene.

Dang but life on the road gets complicated sometimes, don't it? Part of the game, we say, but it's still frustrating.

Wishing you better jacks next time!
Our Jack problem has been ongoing since 2011 and 10 days at the Winnebago factory didn't fix it. Remind me to tell you about that some time.

I am in a very level site right now but besides leveling the jacks are used for stabilization. You can imagine that when Earlene walks around inse the MH the MH rocks and then imagine when I walk.

Okay, I recognize the person with the orange hair, but who is that with the spiked hairdo. Hair like that is becoming on him. Whoever he is.
