Steve - do you ever watch The Chew on ABC.? Today Mario Batalli made bloody marts with beer, and said just what you said.... Garnishes 50% or less, and you have your drink and meal..... He also used an oyster shooter on top.... Thought of you...

Ok all you jolly mutants, let me throw a little reality your way! Went to pick up The Discovery today and guess what it was ready! Did the paperwork looked it over got ready to leave and noticed fuel gauge at less than a 1/4 tank! Humm that's strange cause I had been out to top off the tank in Dec when the tree grew out in front of me.

Back inside I explaned the problem, service mgr. Made a $285 credit to my card that I had just used to make it right! I'm happy, head home.
Safe trip home but got here without the outside refrigerator cover! Called service manager and told him, of course he ask why would we have taken that cover off to fix your awning? I reminded him he had said they winterized it while on their lot and I assume that was when! He's ordering the part and will call when I need to come have the paint matched!

What a up and down trip so far today!

Ok you can go back to being jolly now! I love this RVing!!

I love Marios sense of humor and cooking adventure. Occasionally catch the Chew but have gotten away from the TV since going full time. Catch a few programs. Turn it on and go to bed... wake up turn it off and go back to sleep. Lol. Seems it's on more while we're sleeping than awake.

Pretty sure if you do 1 - it will rain - and if you do the other - the rest will follow.

We share a lotta DNA. All us. Looking forward to meeting you & Kate.

It's been one of those days. Started out with a text and call with Dwayne. The St Patrick's Day parade. A trip to Walmart. Lunch. A little departure prep and an afternoon nap. It's threatened to rain off and on today but so far it's just been cloudy. The wind is beginning to pick up and the threat continues. I'm sitting at the picnic table daring it to do so! Take that rain.

So the local weather man reported there has been just under 9 inches rain here this year. The norm is below 3 inches. I can only imagine how nice it would be here with 6 inches less rain. I've groused about it but it has still been a great escape. Annie has taken the worst of it with allergies but she isn't alone. The "locals" and repeat Winter Texas have all mentioned the change in the area weather pattern and allergies this year.

We have all been more than happy to have not been in Boston or other northern climes where snow has fallen beyond or near record levels.

When I spoke to the park office at Tom Sawyer yesterday they were awaiting a flood on the Mighty M. We reserved a couple nights there overlooking the river when we pull out of Catherine's Landing anyway. Did I mention we're mutants. The river will subside and the rainbow will be bright when we arrive!

So let's all raise a mutant cheer for St. Patty and for making the best of every situation. Even amidst a wee bit o grousing. Can I get and Oh Yeah!

And now for something completely different... I saw Earlenes friend today...

This is a nice rig, for sure, and reasonably priced. We are not in a hurry. We're willing to wait until the right one jumps out at us. As mostly weekenders, it won't (Lord willing) be our last rig, and we like our short gasser pretty well for now.

Dream rig:

40'+/-, TAG (I can dream), bath and a half (Mary can dream), newer electronics (Mary can work from "home"), full sized washer and dryer (Mary again), king sized bed and the rest of the stuff is negotiable. That'll have to wait for the end of my working days.

Reality check:

40'+/-, decent sized bathroom, washer and dryer (she's not budging on this), decent electronics, queen sized bed, and the rest is negotiable. Right now, we want to stay under 100K.

I think I'm ill, though. I saw a really cool set of copper-colored rope lights and almost hit one-click ordering.

Hi Elizabeth...
Ohhh... Ohhh... Copper Colored Rope Lights!!! Go back... get them - get enough to chain around that 40 footer of the future. 100 feet or so... you will be glad you did!

Di just emailed some info on the RV Mutants GC email group re: the RV Mutant Mutated Olympics. She has a well organized starter list of possible events. COINCIDENTLY - today I made another dive into this as well. I picked up 8 small Flexi Road Cones and some rings to toss at them. Also purchased the 3 Official RVM Wham-O Frisbees for the closest to the pin and other toss events.

There are water balloons for the water Ballon toss - similar to egg toss but no yolk.

I have begun to gather some RVM Trivia Questions and have a prize for the winner.

The ducks are in - Tim has the pond and there are prizes for a few lucky duck pickers. Nostril picking not allowed Wayne.

It's coming together and as Di said in her email - the events will geared for wobbly mutants - slow mutants and everyone should be able to get in on the action.

Send ideas for Mutant Olympic Games to the RVM GC email group.

Thanks mutants. The Grand Poobah and the Potentate are in nearly constant communication and our excitement level is growing exponentially.

Who knows what lurks beneath the Kimono? What will the grass skirts reveal? Who will be the opening act for the Paul Byrd Band?

I am through cajoling folks to join in or join us. Those who can't or won't make it can review the GC1.2 Redux Closing Presentation soon enough. It's going to be so much fun that many should consult their doctor before attending and be sure to call your doctor if your smile lasts more than 4 hours.

Ha Steve! While at CW today we over heard a couple mention that they were so glad to be back home from the RGV. Their stories mirror yours with the rain and wind. They had been at McAllen!

X2 Steve.
We will have a grand time at Catherines Landing, complete with Mutant Olympics, Luau party and dance, to say nuthin of the amazing food, comaradirie, laughs, hugs, campfires, kayaking, fishing, and much more.
The Opening of the Kimono stands alone as the only mystery short of Murder at Rope Light Gulch!
Come join the party!
