Hey, I was shorted!
I have never needed/wanted/used the reading lights (same as previously mentioned bedroom TV/ornament).
But now I do not need or want the radio on/off switch, that I do not even have!

And, just discovered that I do not have a door lock switch over the bed that I do not need or want.

I feel...so...neglected.

I do use the reading lights above my bed, but I don't want or need that sticker on my bedroom wall that says "Mount LCD TV here."

Hey RVM4 - hope all is mutating according to plan! When I was a kid, my mom would have to pick me up off the floor and put me to bed. She always said - he runs till he drops. Pretty much still that way. Never been one to read in bed. Head hits pillow - down for the count.

I had forgotten you bought sans TV. Funny about that sticker - I'm sure it's pretty obvious that's what the space was "intended" for.... Maybe you can come up with a mutant mod for the space or a least a more clever sticker - say NO STEP like an airplane wing.

We like the switch above the bed for turning on the radio at night. We like to have music playing when we go to bed. Also I read in bed. It helps me go to sleep, sometimes. Obviously it didn't tonight. But, I will play on the computer for a little and get sleepy enough to go back to bed in a little while.

P.S. Wow, post number 900. Think the powers that be might give us our own section now.

Ha! You sound like Dale--never still except when he sleeps, and that's not often!

I know I want to cover that ugly sticker, but I'm not sure yet with what. Up in the corner at the foot of the bed. I have thought about mounting a small fan to target Dale's side of the bed since I usually keep the AC warmer than he likes.
But a cute poster might be fun...I've got "Mind the Gap" from London, or one of several John Wayne quotes. Waiting for inspiration to strike.

Reading on the Kindle app on my phone is handy because with the lighted screen I can read in the dark and not disturb DH. Unfortunately the charger cable is not quite long enough to reach comfortably in the RV bedroom, so I need the overhead light and a Kindle or paperback book. I have found that hardbacks are too heavy for reading in bed--they wake me up when I drop them! Dale is a history teacher, though. If nothing else will put me to sleep, I borrow one of his books. Those never fail.

How about, "NO EXIT", or "FASTEN SEAT BELT" ?

Or my personal favorite ... "Do not use snowthrower on roof."

RVM4, I have a Kindle Paperwhite. Love it. You can adjust the light level on it from very bright to off. My DW got it for me for my b'day this year. I got her one for Christmas last year. I kinda think I owed it to her. We were in Austin at Seton Heart Hospital. I was having a heart procedure done. She walked out of the room for less than 30 seconds and when she came back the Kindle her daughter's had given her for b'day a couple of years ago was gone. I guess somebody thought they had gotten I-Pad or something else. I hope that they were shocked that when they opened it up it wasn't what they thought it was. We really enjoy them as we both like to read. We take them with us every where we go. Does your DH teach American or World history?

Mine is a Kindle Touch--no light--but I love it. Sure beats carrying tons of books everywhere.

Dale teaches American history, and I didn't mean to imply that it is boring (the subject itself is not), but a lot of the books are sleep-inducing.

American History is anything but boring. Especially the history that is being being made right now. I read a lot when I was in high school. Joined the Navy after graduation and then the stuff I had to read learn was very interesting. After my time was up I just quit reading. To busy working I guess. Now that I'm retired have more to do than when I worked for a living but, my down time is more controlled now. So when I go to bed I read. It is the only time I like reading now.

Going to be another hot one in west Texas today. 105 degrees is the forecast high for today. Won't being doing much outside. Oh well, got some things I can do inside.

Moonrover,

What's a snow thrower; is that like a leaf blower? I'm from LA--if I want to throw snow I have to scrape it off the ground, pick out the bits of grass and twigs, and pack it into a ball, oh, and wait about 5 years because that's how often we see enough snow to stick on the ground.
I do get excited just like a kid when I see fat snowflakes falling--something about that inspires a sense of wonder.

Ahhh ... Your life is sooo ... unfulfilled. You need to take a winter journey to the upper Midwest. Every Lowes and Home Depot will have huge selections of snow throwers (also called snow blowers). The thrill of operating a snow blower in a gusty snow blizzard is without description. I have photos of wife operating snow blower. Wife shoveling car out of snow drift. Wife pulling snow off of roof above doorways. I bought her the premium snow blower model with heated hand grips, self start and of course headlights for late night driveway clearing.

Ah Moonrover, I see you work as hard as I do.

No snow here. She does have her own lawn mower and the RV Roof is her washing to do. I'm working on other things. Like you, I'm sure, I don't miss doing the lawn or washing the roof. True mutant.

When you go F/T there will be many things you will never be required to touch.

My top 3 are mower, snow shovel, paint brush. They have all been supplanted by fire tongs.

How about the rest of the Menagerie of Mutants?
