Just coming up on Brinkley and Cotton Plant, AR. Might make the KOA at West Memphis before the lead horse gives out. He's got the bit between his teeth right now, rarin to get home.

Dunno why. Gettin home means gettin to w@#k unpacking and back to yardwork. What's he wanna do dat fer?

Thanks, Zeelarry, for delivery service and company this morning! I assume Madi is okay by now and your household has settled down again. Hi, Di!

Hi to all who journey the rainbow with us. The rice is up here in its gracefully curved paddies, roadside flowers blooming in patches of pink and white, and the trees every shade of green. Wishing y'all as lovely an evening.

PS: We met the General Manager, Hans, and had a nice long chat. He told us how things work within CW since manufacturers started buying each other out and ordering parts became less and less reliable. I told him what the public perception is of his specific facility. All very cordial, but who knows what he was really screaming inside his own head!

Touched the wrong button.... So now editing.

Sue, glad you are moving... Hope the GM listened.... But i kinda doubt it.
Give us quick updates as you progress and settle in....

Madi is fine, her 2 brothers aged 15 mo and 3 yrs joined us with their dad for supper. Mom is on call.... So had chaos for a couple of hours.... But that is normal..... Gone now, and i am worn out....



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

We love Hinton RV park. We have been there so many times we have our own site #31 that they just give us. We also always stop at Lamberts - great food and I never can eat all that I get. Wish all of you were here in Navarre Fl with us (NOT) - high winds, heavy rain and potential tornados but no hail so far. Just my luck this year I guess.

We didn't but I still landed some catfish... and few a rolls. And I'm still :-( about that fishing trip... what a bummer.

So we saw this license plate art in Lamberts. Was this an RV Plate for To RV Travel perhaps. Decoding these things is always tricky. RVM2 gets ??? all the time.

I passed on the RVDreams link to another couple this afternoon, along with iRV2. Don't think they're mutants. At least not yet.

And: is it Dreams or Dreamers? I think the latter is a blog, while the former are the educators. Did I get it right, Ed?

I can't say "The Eagle has landed" since we don't drive an Eagle. However, Bella Rigatoni has settled gently, gracefully (as always) upon her haunches for an evening's R&R. KOA doesn't even know we're here yet. (Marion, AR; just turned north onto I-55.)

Missed dem rolls by a country mile!

OKC is STILL getting rain! Radarscope shows it's about over., tho. Di, I love that app and have used it a lot. Thanks for recommending it. It's a must for anyone that's not listening to TV or radio all day. Especially if you are in tornado alley in the Spring.

RadarScope
Radar Scope for android: <https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.basevelocity.radarscope&hl=en>

Thanks to Di also for recommending it. I added all the bells and whistles with the PRO version and the total came to about $30 but it is worth it.

======================

That Lambert's you speak of is to far so we'll continue to go to the one in Foley, AL, when we visit friends in P'Cola.

We also have a place here in Houston called "The Potato Patch," and they throw rolls the same way, and the food is as good, if not better because it's Texas, as Lambert's.

Heya, Ed and Barb, the #111s! Never stopped at Hinton (yet), but enjoyed Lamberts. Even if my catching style is more of a "Knock it outa the sky" kind of action. Good food!

Great to hear from you, and glad we aren't with you ... Just this once. Be safe! Sounds scary.

Went to the pet shop we normally deal at and took in their anniversary party. While there this wild looking creature with a hairdo and colour somewhat like #1's decided he liked me.

That bird's got good taste I tell you; exceptionally good taste.

morning mutants..shh...I know you all are sleeping.

Yep opening night was good...feed us well, no baloney sandwich like IRV2 rally.
Yes Sue its RV Dreams.

Took Jackie out yesterday for site seeing, mostly tourist stuff didn't stop. Went to turn Jeep around and noted street name, sky mountain road. Hmmm wonder where this leads. Had Jackie hugging the center console as we looked at cabins on the mountain for the skiers.
Howdy Dave and Nola can almost wave to you.... thinking you guys are camped close by.

Ohh yea issue #1, the fire in the converter is starting to look like we have a plan. Appointment set for Monday on the way home to get the new inverter installed. Geico is mailing the check to the repair facility.
