Got really good money for it on trade in on my new jeep.... Which is on its way here tomorrow.... Yippee, got a new 4 door.... Copper brown.... Beautiful....

Glen and Carol, welcome to RVMville! Great intro you posted.

Elizabeth, happy birthday, belatedly. Hope you enjoyed your day immensely!

Wayne, how's Earlene? If you posted an update over the weekend, I haven't found it yet.

I keep wanting to run off in the RV every weekend and Kate keeps trying to reel me in, saying things like "We have a LOT of things to get done before we can leave in April" which, translated, means "Give me the keys to Bow, get your butt in gear and clean out the garage, repair the drywall in the garage ceiling, sell the Rav4, clean out the closets and haul as much crap as you can to Salvation Army, Goodwill and the like, and throw away everything else except our family heirlooms and treasures and the few other things we want to store."

She won't let me get on a ladder and repair drywall. No sireee, not with these knees. Although I have to say that Symvist injection really did help. Still, I'll be hiring someone to do the drywall repair.

Sure wish we could make it to Bryce. Probably not gonna happen.

And one never knows what gifts of good karma the Rainbow might bestow!

Good luck with all of it Mel. Those who have gone before are pulling for you!

Made it home from the Birthday Party for our great friend Donna.
'Twas a wonderful afternoon/evening event that we got to share.
We belong to the Toy Run Society with her and hubby Greg,
camp along side their motorhome and just spend quality time spreading it thin.
Great day and I'm tired from all the fresh air.

Thank you, Steve. We'll probably need some luck to make this happen in April ... and me focusing on the necessary.

What is the Toy Run Society? I'm picturing little Ken, Barbie, and GI Joe dolls running around a track somewhere. Of course, Ken and Joe are chasing Barbie, who is outrunning both of them because they got lax in their old age and sat around in their RVs watching sports and drinking beer. Barbie, who is a good friend of Sue's, stayed fit and trim and goes kayaking and runs 10k marathons all the time.

Di and Larry congrats on the new Jeepy! Love that color cause it would match Jenny's color perfectly. They didn't offer that color when I bought the Trailhawk but I wish they had.
