I have prided myself for being a low maintenance gal for all these years. For years, until the market fell back in the late 80's early 90's don't remember that year as I was crawling with little snotty noses and dirty bottoms to wipe, we lived very , very frugally so Bob could retire early. After that bad Friday, half our fortune gone, life went on and slowly morphed into a different dream, but the frugal living went on out of habit and fiscal responsibility. Now that the little noses and bottoms are raised and almost independant I am finally giving myself a little permission to eat out more than once a month, get my nails done occasionally, and buy a little something when I want to. Born blond... forever blond/rainbow colors until I can't get out to get the colors done up right.

Wayne, the proper punch line goes.... The doorbell rang and the employer came to the door and the blond said, "The painting of your car is done but the it's a Ferrari, not a Porch."

Okay, the reasoning for the name PORSH. . . . . during the tender age of 18, I was stationed in Frankfurt, Germany with the US Army. During the next few years, I had learned to truly appreciate and fall in love with the PORSCHE 911. For the next 46 years of my life, I always dreamt of getting my 911. Diane knew of my dream, while supporting and encouraging me to get it, so I thought. Then came the day that the battery in my ICD starting failing & finally went dead. With that dead battery, Diane made her move for HER wanting a new RV, since the current one was older then her Jeep, and said she couldn't live with that thought. An old coach towing my new Jeep!?!?!?! With me being worn down & out, due the dead battery, I agreed with her. Now, with the new coach being contracted for, I have realized that my dreams of owning a Porsche 911 have gone down the road. The dreams and savings for my Porsche have now become Di's new coach. Di tried to smooth things over and said we should call the new RV, PORSCHE. And just think about it, she doesn't even know which brand it is.

The other side for the name is simply an abbreviation of 'POOR SHITS'. So now, you know the meaning[s] for name - PORSH!!!!

That's my story & I'm sticking with it.

Leaving out on Wed to drive to the Florida/Georgia state line to take delivery on our 2016 Berkline XL40RB.

Yes, a new coach.... Some of you know that the one we have was sold as new by a local dealer but wasnt... A year in court before we got to use it. Major issues, etc... Got most ironed out, but we just wanted a little bit of elbow room....

So this sweet condo has 4 slides..... Ya know... The finance company says ok, so we said ok.... What it doesnt have is a paid off mortgage... Thats my new mutant status....

Name is PORSH, Larry can explain it.....

Attachment 109370 Attachment 109372

So YES, planning to be in Arizona for a couple of months..... This winter.....

So did I. I'm in a weakened condition, so it doesn't take much.
