Almost feels like the holidays again it's so quiet

Tonight I setup Mac's travel cage that fits in the car with a rope perch instead of the heavy duty wooden perch that was in it. I think the wooden perch was transferring too much vibration to my buddies feet while we travel 1300 miles from the S&B to the FL location. He was getting a bit ill on those rides and yet other rides in a much smaller cage he was fine in. So this hopefully will cure his car sickness on our next trip in a little over a week. Boko on the other hand has decided these rides take so long she might as well take advantage of all that play time in her travel cage. She keeps me totally entertained with her chatting and noises on the ride. It's a real trip sometimes when your pet actually speaks back at you!

Carl,

Sena doesn't speak words like Boko and Mac, but after more than 18 years together, we definitely understand what the other is saying. Although I don't have to worry about someone on the phone thinking it is me using that fowl language. Pun intended. It's amazing how much company they are on a long trip.

Drive careful and stay safe. You are going to be burning up a lot of miles in the next few weeks. If I win the $1.5 billion Powerball lottery tonight, I'll hire you a chauffeur.

I still would rather be south, but travel ins. gave me a six month exclusion, so it is stay home and renovate.

Sorry to hear Annie is under the weather Steve, ohmmmms from us!
Thanks Dennis. Sounds like you found something to occupy your time lol. Still. I was looking forward seeing ya down here. Just glad to hear the ticker is ticking and you're not bone idle.

Thanks Barb! Careful and safe are primary directives on my trips. I will always stop if I feel I am not capable of continuing my journey as I realize how painful it could be by not doing so!

And with $1.5B, maybe I could design an RV with air-lift to fly to my next destination!

Earlene would be the authority on that. Earlene, have you seen any holes in Wayne's head recently? If so, I think you could just stuff them with cotton balls and put duct tape over them. Don't let him go swimming ... or rather don't let him put his head under water. With all those holes in the head ..... Well, I hate to think of the consequences.

Barb. if you win the 1.5 billion $ powerball tonight, would you pay for Wayne to have cosmetic surgery to fill the holes in his head? I don't imagine Earlene will think duct tape is very sexy.

Just read about Dennis's fast home sale! Wow. I bet he wishes he could rewind and up the price. We're not in a huge hurry, since Allison will be here to work with the realtor even after we're on the road, if needed. In a perfect world, it will sell in early March and we'll have 3 weeks to vacate. But, we're not going to set a rock bottom price. No hurry to sell.

I'm feeling really good, Steve. Compared to the first knee replacement, this one has been like a walk in the park! It's amazing. The therapist that has been coming to our house is very complimentary of my progress. I'm a hard worker and do all my exercises 2-3 times daily, and several of them I do multiple times daily. The outer Rainbow is my motivator, not to mention our Mutant family and the prospect of seeing many Mutants in the coming year as we roam the Rainbow. You can understand my dedication to rehab! I am ready to start the Journey!!!

Dang it all! They went and drew those power ball numbers. Up until then I had the winning numbers. Happens all the time.

One winner and the ticket was sold in Calif. (Nope, not Dianne or Larry)

Ok. So here's the truth.
When you get in the drivers seat and head out full time - well - there is no feeling like it. Be warned. As you start down the highway and on to the outer rainbow, you will likely get a big grin on your face. This is no ordinary grin. This is the kind of grin that comes deep from within. When that passes, you likely begin to laugh. And laugh. Then you will settle into the drivers seat like never before. And then you're there. The outer rainbow.
