For a long time people thought the D-Vees were nutz, the girls all wore skirfishes instead of the normal kerchiefs. My younger sister sure had a problem pronunciating that one.

Dave - I've been pondering this since you wrote it. You started by placing "Not" in front of INclude and EXclude. That seems to make each their opposite - to Not Include is to Exclude and to Not Exclude is to Include. But what I think you were saying is we do neither. Anyone that declares to not have some things in their RV and they don't miss having them, and the journey is their destination is welcome. We have no barriers, which to me is the inclusive union set of the two requirements. There are mutants, mutants in waiting, and non-mutants. That's it as far as I can tell.

When you think about set theory, in the Universe there is one circle - those who don't have and don't miss some things - in another circle, those who make the journey their destination. The union set being the overlap (the RVMdom / Rainbow). Outside of the union set is everyone else, including non-mutants and future mutants. And of course the circle of those who have everything - miss things - and don't make the journey their Destination is there as well.

Since we do not pick and choose RVMs - or limit in any way who is or is not a mutant other than the two requirements, I feel like we are all inclusive. Being an RVM is a personal declaration - and inclusion or exclusion is a self directed choice. And, to all that have yet to determine their mutantness - the door remains open. Seems pretty inclusive to me, and down right friendly too.

Tell ya whut: Send me some of that puppy fur and I'll test it fer ye. Don't put it in plastic, though. Paper, please!

I've seen sweaters made from Newfies blown undercoat and they look like angora. Prolly why it's called chiengora.

Pix of a headband I knitted from yarn spun from fur from my golden retriever combined with black shetland sheep. Hard to get a good pix because the I-pad couldn't figure out what to focus on, it is so fluffy! Very warm and not stinky when wet.

At our house we eat "basgetti" instead of spagetti, courtesy of our daughter's youth, and when something goes missing we say "It's gone to Cubby" because when our son was little and something disappeared he said his imaginary friend Cubby took it. Very handy, those imaginary friends!

My family has toadda trucks for tow trucks and screwver for screw driver, from my nephew, Keiith and "Here me am" from my brother Jim, his dad. Both gems spoken by them at age 3.

Now you may discuss this amongst yourselves .....
Here ya go, Jeff

The digital version
Visited States Map: States Visited Map, Where I've Been Map, Colored Map of The United States, Map of States Visited.

The deluxe sticker version
CCI 100 Permanent State Sticker : Amazon.com : Automotive

And Seinfeld, despite what the say, was a show about 4 friends and their lives. I don't know where they get the about nothing. Friends are something to be treasured.

One year when the company I worked for before retiring only had ~ 25 employees we had a dirty Santa gift exchange. My gift was a bag filled with chocolate candy gold coins and half dollars and a tag that read, "New friends and old, one is silver, the other is gold."

When I left in 2011 there were over 150 employees. I missed the days when I knew everyone.

The new Bella might fit in our originally designated spot, but the palm trees there wouldn't allow the slides to deploy. Oops! So we're in a new neighborhood in the park, with new neighbors, close to mailbox and laundry. It's also closer than I like to the shuffleboard court.

It's all okay, though. The boat landing is closer, too, and my kayak feels right at home.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Just not here!

Y'all stay safe, and I wish you happy holidays, however and wherever you celebrate.

When you do make it to our neck of the woods, I'd love to be your tour guide! Mary grew up in the D.C. area, and the Shenandoah Valley is our home. Fall is the prime time to visit - we have pretty color on the mountains, and there's a fabulous art festival the second weekend in October. Come and see us, y'all!
