And then one thing just transpired into another and I lit into the upper green part of the project, so I thought I'd share some photos of that as well.

At least the Diamond Shield Project is now complete.

The thing about doing a tedious project was it gave me hours and hours and a sunburn on my neck to think about my father and the good times we shared.
Looks GREAT Jeff!

Virginiamtns it's sounding like your certainly mutant material. Hang tight, the great Pootantate and over all keeper of the numbers will be along soon. No doubt he is currently running background checks, arrest records, planet of origin papers and using the master mutant computer and will determine the final outcome. Let me be the first to say welcome to the rainbow, I have all the confidence your application will pass.

Flaggship1. Thanks for the kind thoughts. We're prepping the boat for the Boat Show here in Ft Myers in mid Nov. Have had several inquires and many hits on our blog site about our 10 years aboard. We are hopeful that with all the traffic at the marina during the show we will find the right buyer. Keeping our fingers crossed. Would live to make the CL Grand Curiosity!!

No additional stuff required. In fact, when we transitioned from TT to MH this year we jettisoned an embarrassingly large collection of stuff that we really just don't need. I feel like I could hold a yard sale of just RVing junk...I mean treasures. Downsizing is our motto now - as soon as the grandkids move out we are selling the house and going tiny. Just need enough room for us and the critters.
Welcome to RVMdom, virginiamtns, you are RVM55!!!!! You are now free to move about the Rainbow, and to continually enjoy your destination: the Journey.

The Menagerie of RV Mutants has risen to 55 in the 6 short months since RVMdom began. My pride continues to grow in this fine, eclectic collection of diversity and honest comaradirie.

Again, welcome!
Dave and Nola RVM1

PS: FYI, there will be a Grand Curiosity in Hot Springs AR in April.

On Edit - I see RVM1 beat me to the puch. At least we both assigned same the number...

Virginiamtns - welcome to the RVMdom. Your place on the rainbow has been secured based on your excellent application. It is clear that the journey is your destination and what you don't have, you don't miss and are working to not miss even more! You are offically awarded RVM55 - the double nickle. All rights and privilidges are hereby conferred.

It's always nice when a new iRV2 member makes joing the RVMs one of their early posts. It shows initiative and a sense of adventure, daring, and well just plain old good judgement. Keep in mind the Grande Curisosity coming up in April 2014 - and if you can make it - or need info on it you can track it down in a thread search or PM Herb and Barb or myself.

I recently read your intro to iRV2 and was wondering if you have traveled with all 8 parrots?

We look forward to your ponders and contributions to our little group of mutants.
RVM2

[/QUOTE]

Not all at once! We have five that like traveling and three that don't. Well, two that don't and one doesn't trust hands, so we don't pick her up. She's a very large macaw and would happily remove digits if we tried.

The remaining gang of five love camping. We only bring one at a time - they are messy little creatures, and we never take dogs and birds on the same trip. Their favorite camping activity (and mine) is being outside during a warm summer shower. They play outside (in their cage), singing and preening and usually drawing a crowd. The Eclectus are known to be a talkative but not terribly loud species. If we didn't take them outside you wouldn't know they were there. Their other favorite activity is hiking. I have a special back/front pack called a Pak-O-Bird that they ride in.

I always thought I was a dog person, and then I got a bird...and another...and another...and now we have eight permanent residents. Several were considered unadoptable due to behavior issues, and several came from horrific abuse and neglect. We've fostered many parrots over the years, and found great homes for them. Our parrots will likely outlive us, as they can live as long as 80 years. We have plans in place for all of them when we pass over the rainbow.

Probably more information than you wanted, but I sure do love these crazy feathered critters. Any pet that can carry on a conversation is always entertaining.

Our thoughts and prayers go you to you and your family.

Though it has been many years since we have lost our parents,
the memories and the emotions are still close to the surface.
We understand all you are feeling.

Take care and remember the happy times.

Welcome to the madness! Glad to have you aboard and look forward to your sharing of wit & wisdom.

..... They play outside (in their cage), singing and preening and usually drawing a crowd. .... Their other favorite activity is hiking. I have a special back/front pack called a Pak-O-Bird that they ride in.

In China they "take the bird for a walk", meaning the canary rides along in its cage. Shop owners hang the cage outside their shop door, weather permitting.


....Our parrots will likely outlive us, as they can live as long as 80 years. We have plans in place for all of them when we pass over the rainbow.

Probably more information than you wanted, but I sure do love these crazy feathered critters. Any pet that can carry on a conversation is always entertaining.[/QUOTE]

Good on ya for planning ahead for the birds. Many do not think to do that, or relegate the birds to the garage when their conversation becomes annoying.

Not too much info! Mutants are curious folk & need to know stuff. Technical term, stuff.

Again: welcome to the rainbow!

Cheers!
