I get 100% daily recommended amount of Thiamin every morning in Centrum Silver Men... but I suspect it would take more than 1.5 mg to ward off skeeters... how much did ya take...

Fire ants... what they good for. Absolutely nuthin. Say it again. Huh. Ya. Good God Ya'll.

Awww.... just passing thru. Too bad we didn't know. If we had been in camp, a mini-curiosity could have been the order of the day.

How was your trip to Savannah and Skidaway? Does retirement fit yet? Are you still in decompression mode? Or is it euphoria?

Waving in retrospect! Cheers!

We had enough trouble making progress today. I-10 westbound was shut down due to an accident and the LONG backup and detour thru Monticello took over an hour and a half. We had just crossed the Suwanee River before seeing brake lights ahead. I guess Sue and Martin didn't log a bunch of miles today, either.

Ya have to be extremely careful when loading upside down.... It can warp the body.... Ifn it dont set jest right....

Waze is a really cool app.... I am still not used to it though....




Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

But to be honest, we had the bit between our teeth and might not know the word whoa when in that mode. It's not really the mutant way, I know.
Sounds familar.

Heya, Barb! We had our share of rolling parking lot, too. Very little actual stopping, though, no detours (how did we miss all that?), and time out for lunch and the weekly conversation with the English daughter. We have wound up on the southern outskirts of Montgomery near I 65.

Will look for your daily post. Will you be at CL early too? This long day means a couple of easier, shorter driving days. Today we walked out to a nearby Popeyes for Cajun-sorta supper, then around the park perimeter to compensate for the all-day sitting.

Sunset over our coach and Jeep was gentle but pretty, and the air was fresh and cool. No biting insects either! Oh what a relief it is!

Barb, let me explain Dennis' thinking. He unplugged it. He did not plug it back in, therefore it is not flickering. What do you expect from a "Northern" farm boy.
