You won't forget Naples, I hope! We have some uh those green thangs next to our parkin' spot in that KOA thar. Photo opps galore!

Palm trees along some of the places we kayak, and kayakkers yakking while waiting while the trash can turkey cooks.

Cheers!

Ah! First PONG game out was sold by Sears for $99 and I bought one. Spent hours playing that game, then PacMan. Hey, $99 was a lot of money back in the '70's. The first home version by Atari was release in 1975 and sold exclusively through Sear's stores. I just have to be the "first" in electronics, so my wife says.

Most graphic programs can rotate pictures. What program do you use to view the pictures?

Grand Curosity 5K
Rock climbing and repelling.
Bicycle marathon
Sack races and lawn darts!

More my speed! Maybe one uh them chairs with wheels on. Booby prize for the longest time?

Can't wait!

Cheers!

All those in favor of having an adult beverage around a campfire say Aye!
Aye! I have a dashboard IDfer, but think a new one is in order! Craftier, dashier, classier....etc.

Aye! Good idea with the card stock. I have some to share, along with metallic pens, paint pens, glitter.... (Gradeschool teachers' and parent's nightmare: glitter!) Glue sticks and scissors. The mind boggles.

Aye! An iRV2 person I met at the Amana rally brought her insulated mug to the campfire and confessed it was filled with her favorite beverage: champagne. Way to go!

(I'm still a bit out of the loop, but I'm getting there. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!)

Okay, so yes "garbage can turkey" is superb when cooked by someone who knows what he's doing.

(I'm sure you meant trash can, didn't you, yeah? Although the mental image of a can of Spam did surface pretty quickly.)

Hi Timarti !!!

Thank you for those old photos, dont ya just love them, the only thing better would be to be able to rummage through them and see if there are any old collectables left behind..

Cheers !!!

Hey Sue !!!!!

Thank you for the pic .... I dont want to think about the number of hours it took to clean out the center of that tree ..... even if they had some modern tools it still would have taken a very long time .... it makes me glad I'm retired .... hahahahaha

Cheers !!!

Do we have any mutants in Seattle willing to check it out?
And then you would have every dog in the neighborhood following you whenever you take a walk if you used that stuff.

Well, despite getting down to 17 last night, the heater seemed to work ok. Went up to O'Reily's today and bought a couple of jugs, waited until it was a couple degrees over freezing and poured them in and ran the pump and got pink out of the hot water taps... I think we'll be ok .

X2 - and that Polaroid trick was an oldie but a goodie. We did that as kids but never to such great results. Those were simply awesome! Way better than any Polaroid. Great work!!

Ok, so I've been out of touch for a day or two and it appears Sue's back, a minnie Curosity is planned and Martha thinks she is 17, went to local pub called O'Reily's and got a couple jugs and poured it in. I'm almost afraid to go back and read all the post I missed!
