Man....I bin busy with my hot tub install and you guys can jabber like a bunch of hens at a hen party! I can't keep up ta y'all at 100 posts a day!

Finally got all the wiring run from one side of the house to the other. Hot Tub base is completed except for where the stairs will be. Hot Tub gets delivered this week. Electrician to do final hookups. Then I'm soaking my weary aching back!

Y'all are nuts! But being nuts about a puppy is a good thing. Welcome to the mutancy, Henry.

Now airline says it could arrive on any later flight so they will call us. GD beside herself now that she may not get to compete if the luggage doesn't arrive in time. Soooo super grandparents that we are we spring into action! We go to the Convention center were the meet is being held to see if vendors are there selling. Much to our surprise only one vender but not selling any leotards or any other stuff she needs. But they were helpful in sending us to a local gym where we we bought her a performance Leo, and luckily they had a used pair of leather grips they sold us that just happened to be in Kaylee's size ( that must have been a God thing cause those are special order only not sold in stores). Then it's off to Dicks Sporting Goods to get the vet wrap and tape and an ankle brace for the foot she broke in diving some time ago. We dash back over to the convention center so she can have a practice round. Whew we are beat!

This morning we decide to go back to airport to check and finally they confirm her bag will arrive in ten minutes on the flight that just landed. Whew! That kid has never been so excited to see a piece of luggage! Soooo here we are, she is showering and getting ready to go. Competition for her level at 4:00 so finally the world is back in balance!

I will post again tonite after the competition is over. Hopefully this experience won't affect her performance cause she has been a bundle of nerves. Keep your fingers crossed brothers and sisters!

They get a gold star for having the 2008 Fleetwood Revolution inside for us. But it would have been a little better if the rear half of the interior lights worked. Dark bedroom and rear bath hard to see. Engine still had the orignal air filter, air dryer cartridge orignal, bottom of water filter laying in wet bay(froze?), pealing clear coat, fogged windows, batteries not secured, oil leak... just for starters.
No residental frig, no frig outside, no ladder extension, no windows on kitchen wall. Fairly low ball trade value so needless to say this is not the one.

Currently at a high school graduation party in Burlington Iowa.
Well, that just sucks big time. They had no idea who they were missing with, eh?

Di and Larry, be proud of your four-door brown. Got a name for it?
Name? Okay Di, call it "Cookie" because it is a "Brownie." And when you are off road it could be a "Cookie Cutter." Or just name it "Cookie Cutter." There, now you have a name.

Amazing how the stress level of young ones has to go so much higher than those of us "older" folks. LOL.

Barb, where are you these days? Sure did enjoy our mini at Palo Duro.

Don't worry about the mini Maglite. Sena obviously wanted it! If you don't have one, just keep it. I think we might have another one somewhere at the s&b. If I find it, I'll move it to the coach.

Thanks so much! We are excited for the move and will be happy to see visitors ;-). We will be staying in the RV for a while we are guessing so if anyone has stayed in Van Horn let me know which RV park you like.

We will be sad to leave most of our grandkids but plan to fly a lot while Hunter is working lol.
