My 94 Allegro Bay had every one calling it a "classic". When we went out to dinner and returned to the camping lot, my neighbor ask me if I'd seen the Tiffin motorhome owner's facebook page - their were 8 pictures of the "classic" that were taken at the restaurant while we were eating. Every time we went somewhere, when we got back to camp, people wanted to know where we went and what we did. I felt a little like Barb with Sena. It was a good trip and we meet a lot of great people. It was also nice to meet the people that have answered a lot of my questions when I'd call it with a problem.

Now Bob you know a stop in AR would have really made a great trip adventure! The now four Arkies are always looking for a reason to eat!

Upon inquiring, we found it is named Nut Weasel, & is a wire contraption that is rolled along the ground amongst fallen walnuts. As it rolls over each nut, the wires of the "Slinky" spread just enough to allow its admittance into the rolling cage and spring back to trap the walnut.

When the wire cage is full, the nuts are emptied into a waiting vessel, i.e. bucket, & the process is repeated until said bucket is full.

In the meantime, one's back is saved from much pain. 😎 Incredible device, this!

BTW, walnut hulls have never burnt my hands, but they certainly change the color of your fingers & palms, as well as your gloves, & the dye does not wash off. 😲 It has to wear off.

Now I'm jealous fer shur! Lucky girl!

The younger the better for horsemanship, & better an adult ready-trained than a youngster. Sitting on that broad back will be like a magic carpet!

I'd have thought "pony" first, as you probably did, but ponies can be snappish, especially Shetlands. Welsh ponies are more calm.

Our DGD has been riding as therapy since she was 3 or 4.

Did DS get a deal on that horse? I hereby request PoP, especially of child & horse together. Pretty please?

Ok this is probably not the place but heck here goes. As a young girl raised on horseback and then riding with my first born within the first month with a carrier on my chest for several hours a day ( loved my horses) and my outside time. So much better than cleaning house plus if you clean quick before you go then itís clean when you get home. Later though I learned from doctors that many, many young girls loose their virginity to a long horse ride. Plus very hard for a guy to compete with the motion of a galloping horse for a couple of hrs. The term ride a cowboy comes naturally. Just something to think about. Hope I didnít offend but it would have been beneficial if I had been told earlier in life.

Dave & Nola, those missions are marvelous, thanks for sharing.

Sue, you got that right about Shetlands. I had a Shetland Quarter when I was a kid, her name was Justice. Boy she was something else.

Dear girl, sweet RVM, your words have struck me, and that to my heart!
ĎTis sweet, loving, strong, honest, forthright, and spoken from your soul!

I guess I have tender hands! I've seen the nut weasels used on pecans before and golf balls.

Im assuming he got a good deal. He's the son that argued that a horse was only something that would eat grass his cows could be eating. Funny how we learn to eat our words. I'll work on a pop, we were burning leaves when they came walking it over, but I'll get one posted somewhere.

You'll have to get there before my neighbor, but at least he brings over some of the wine he makes from the berries.

Harvest festival sounds nice, y'all harvest I watch!
In the 50's and early 60's when we wanted to go fishin, we would take the husk off of the walnuts in our yard and grind them up a little and add some water. We would pour the mixture over the yard and the night crawlers would jump out of the ground. Easy pickins for bait.

I've never found a good use for any of it, tree, husk or nut. There was a large blackberry bush that grew around the bottom of the tree that we would pick from. Had to watch your ankles not only from snakes but also from turning them on the darn nuts.

That's so cool, never heard of it, love it. Where I grew up there were tons of night crawlers as long as it was a little moist.
