We like to pick on Wayne when he is not able to respond. It's fun! But he is a good party starter. His Wal-Mart attire holds the record for "... hey look at that guy, get the camera".

So when Wayne reads this I'll be at an undisclosed location, no phone, no way to find me.

Poor Wayne is leaving out today.... A month late... But at least he us getting out.... We are tethered to home....
Will he read all of these posts and reply? Hugs wayne..... We will see....

Being rather proud of his purchase, he wanted to rub salt into the wound of us who think we are driving around in domestically correct vehicles. My friend went on line to look for snazzy reflective stickers with the wording ... "Proudly Made in America". He ordered 'em. The stickers are ... made in China !!

Just had to toss this out as a sort of thought for the day (or 21st century).
The true irony in this story is, that the profits to Toyota go directly overseas to Japan. All of the money spent in the USA to build said product are part of Toyota's operating expenses, therefore the ruse of said companies being beneficial to the USA are false. Yes the dollars employ Americans, but the profits don't, this is what you need to remember, before you send your hard earned income to a foreign automaker.
Of course if you live in caknukastan they are all foreign automakers.
I will now step off my soapbox, disassemble it and put it away.

Cheers !!!!

Jeff et al,

Kanukistan (us guys) and (USA) youse guys have (had) some very neat reciprocal trade agreement in the auto industry that is (was) beneficial to both parties. When i was working in the steel industry we supplied both sides of the border automakers with steel and stampings for forming car parts. The Japanese car parts all arrived in containers to go threw their assembly plants and exit with made in Canada or Made in USA pride claims. I have been out of the industry for too long to know the current state of affairs but I still doubt that the Japanese do anything more than cookie cutter their 'made in north America' cars.

BTW Hundai bought raw steel products from our mill to bring back to Korea for making their cars so they at least played the game.


Hey who new soapboxes were contagious.

After a bad storm in Victoria the city had a couple of guys come around to clear damaged trees on the condo property across the street from our condo. I could have made a fortune of the video of these inept low bidders if I had of owned a video camera. The city came good for the repairs to the building to keep it from going to court. Funniest Tuesday day off I had in a long time.

I have a great funny one connecting a 17 year old working as the night shift DJ in Canada who ended up connecting with someone he chatted with on the phone in a place near Willbanks Steel in Texas as a steel company representative 30 years later.

Oh and Wayne didn't live there then.

So looking forward to Bryce and the option is still open as of now.

Also, happy anniversary Les and Bonnie! Ommmms for all things to work out for y'all, Herb and Barb. Welcome all new RVMs!!! I know I'm leaving out some important greetings, well-wishes, etc. So, Woot! Woot! Ommmmmmm and so forth to everyone.

I love this Rainbow of Mutants! Everyone have a fun and safe 4th!

PS - We're headed to Hamilton, TX on Thursday afternoon. Our niece's new hubby and his family have a ranch there and have an area devoted to family RVing. They have some Airstreams set up permanently there and one open site with full hookups. Will post pics next week.

That family is awesome! What a super setup! Makes me sorry I'm an only child!

Nice place! And such handsome dogs!

We have to miss Bryce, too. 😭 American greed: I want it all and I want it right now! Even if it means being in 2 places at once. 😜
