My name is Nancy, I'm a fifty-something southern female, born in the midwest, but lived most of my life here in Georgia. Father was from Wisconsin and mother from South Carolina, so that makes me a Hybrid Mutant!! Sounds like something from the SciFi channel doesn't it.

Well, all that really means is I would rather be in cold weather, sitting by a fire, drinking hot chocolate and wearing longjohns. What I DO NOT like is being hot. Could never understand people wanting to retire to the south. Don't get me wrong, I do love the south, but can only tolerate the weather during certain months. And that is the main reason I became an RV owner so that I could follow the seasons and not have to rely on electricity for cooling and gas for heating.

I'd like to live in Michigan during May-October and then in one of the southern states October-April. Follow the spring flowers, fall leaves, and avoid snow except for a light dusting which is nice.
Thanks for the additional info Nancy. Nice to meet you. Hope you're ready for this group of STMs (Sick, Twisted, Mutants)!!

Soon Tim, aka Slim, will be along to tell you how he's the norma....well you get the idea....take that with a grain of the stuff GPotentate's lamp is made of.

So does the demise of the pink flamingo yard ornament inventor mean the price of said statuary will increase? Are they more collectable now? Will there be more yard ornament thefts now? I may decide to bring my flamingoes in every night, just to be safe.

Nancy,
Welcome to the group(ies). I'm the nice, sensible, lovable one of the group. When you find the alternative means of communications, just ask me for my theme song.

We've been off the grid for a few days following the rainbow.



Welcome Nancy, RVM 117 GA Peach! I have a daughter living in GA. I don't know how you guys stand the humidity. I about died when there a few years ago during June. I had to get back into the house by 10 a.m. to survive. LOL. It made for some early morning geocaching.

Well I think I'm going to like this new park! We made the move on one of the hottest days of the year thus far. When checking in the desk lady said the lady that does the orientation was off for the next two days so we could just take it easy!

Take it easy sounds nice but boring so we explained we have been doing this Park Hosting Gig at other parks for a few years and we would just wing it. This new park is the largest in the state, with 52 full time employees and over 100 currently on staff. Has golf, sailing, horseback riding, lodge and camping. Once we found we could get satalite and cell signal (although sketchy ) we may like this park. Cowboy Slim may do a little bronc busting while here!

Ha all you new mutants Welcome! Remember me, I'm the Trustworthy, Kind, Considerate, Careing mutant!

All you mutants need to plan on migrating to Bryce Canyon Ut. for the Grand Curosity (also known as a rally) Aug 15. It'll be life changing, just ask any that have attend any of the others.

I know there are some post I should be responding to but being the kind sole I am I'll just say solong partner, Slim Tim out!

I have seen what hail can do to these precious pink beauties. Protect them. They could be worth fives of dollars!

My neighbor just pulled out in his 07 Eagle. I liked the paint - Annie felt it was too subdued... I guess she's a bright color swirl fan... who knew.
