Hi Suspinz. See, I can spell it correctly and incorrectly as well!

It is a beautiful 70 degrees out here on the patio mutating. But time to shower, load up the Splendide and watch a little tv. Maybe sip a Cuba Libra tonight. Not sure why that sounds so refreshing tonight - it just does.

On another note - the two Zephyrs and the Journey that have the three spots on the lake have them for the year at $15,500 + electric. One has not moved an inch in 2 years. I believe that's a vegamutation. Hereby entered into the RVM Lexicon and Phraseology manual.

RVM2 - mutating at last - fridge humming along. Life on the rainbow is good.

Note: I did fall flat on my face today - first time since I don't know when. A little sore for the moment - but nothing serious or that will hinder the mutation process.

It's a beautiful place to mutate - as Herb and Barb have attested. There will be views similar to this pic I snapped from our patio mutatable on Lake LBJ.

Don't be left mutating alone - plan on a Grande Curiosity next April. Tim is taking names - and this pretty much guarantees a couple more editions of RVM News.

I don't always read newsletters, but when I do, I read RVM News.

Glad you got your wifi going. What a peaceful place for Sparky to relax and drink. Would like to throw our hat in the ring for the 'Grand Curiosity' in April if work will afford us the cooperation of mutating to our neighboring state.
Keep pics of Sparky's vacation coming. It helps some of us who are winding down the years of work, something to ponder upon.

Cnkinthebus - thanks much - and I can't wait to retire myself! Sparky says retirement is great and he seems very smitten with Sophie.

So I'm out at the mutantable - I hear Annie rummaging around inside Bonita Bounder. I wait and wait. Finally I give up and go in. She is showered and milling around. I look around and see this -

She went around the mutant transition apartment and took things from here and there - to try on for size. I didn't miss it at home - and have no idea where it was stashed. She is a mutants mutant for sure!

Travels along the rainbow got in the way of my mis-sent message. Complete message follows:

It has been mentioned to the as-yet-unmutated DH that this Grand Curiosity would be a worthy objective. Personally, I would be there w/o question, but this Estimable Event will happen very shortly after we arrive home from FL. At this point, Suspinz has to be counted as a Maybe. Possibly even a Strong Maybe.

I'll let you know how the mutation is going.

Cheers!

Good to hear from our rapidly unwinding Flagship that the fridge is behaving. BTW, what is it humming? Does it go w/ the Cuba Libra?

Marble Falls, right? Last time we saw the falls, they were under some stress, or was it refurbing. Very low flow and lovely pieces of stone flaking off in the hand. I'd like to see how they look now.

We are just home from a small rally in Galena, IL. The kitchen slide stayed unslid, the town is an architectural wonder (1800s fancy brick buildings), shopping was fun, and so were our fellow campers. The guys went off on their own tour Sat. afternoon while I taught the women how to make silk paper...inside an RV. Good thing there were only 5 of us. I did say it was a small rally.

Always something to look forward to, isn't there? Now it's the Grand Curiosity in the spring. I'm hopeful...ohmmmm, ohmmmm.....

Cheers!
Sue

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy turning beautiful landscape photos into iPad app jigsaw puzzles? Have I mentioned that there just are not enough beautiful landscape puzzles for the above mentioned activity? Have I mentioned that the Fall rains have begun in southern WA state? <heavy sigh>

Thanks Steve!

Barb - you may remember my dearly departed Aunt Bonita (namesake) lived in PT. I know all about that weather. She always claimed that the peninsula was spared much of rain and winter weather that Seattle and the rest of the state received. When I was there it was very nice. We did drive into Seattle 1 day. I'm certain of 1 thing. I won't be driving Bonita Bounder through downtown Seattle be it rain or shine!!

Since we are toadless mutants - we pick up our rental car tomorrow. Will be on the lookout for landscape and scenery pics.

Bed time for this tired and possibly bruised rib cage mutant. Irony - ribs for dinner too.
Steve

Well it certainly cold be. Bruised ribs and baby back ribs. Did I mention Icy Hot. Hope that doesn't portend weather.

Looks like we can make it to the Landing in Arkansas in April. Sounds like a great time. We have a lot to ponder before then. We have been in Colorado since Tuesday and are staying in Colorado Springs now. Went downtown to the Famous Steak House tonight for supper. Came out about an hour later to the parking garage and there are two police officers by our toad. They tell us we have been broken into. Passenger side window is smashed into a jillion pieces. They left glove box and console open and a few items left thrown about. Nothing stolen that we can see. Loaded revolver still in back of glove box. Case of wine still in the far back of the SUV. They were in a hurry and looking for a easy target like laptop or iPad or cell phone. Good thing for them we didn't come out sooner or they may have mutated over the rainbow. The glass is everywhere and a mess to clean up. It is raining so we just got a large trash bag and shut in the door for now. Other then that life is great, never sweat the small things in life. Just be thankful for your health and what you have.
