This is totally exciting.
Not allowed by several parts of my skeletal remains.....however....
I will just take pictures....for blackmail.

Something To Ponder

A Little Something I just Ran Across I Thought I'd Share:

The Paradox of Our Time

The paradox of our time in history is that
we have taller buildings but shorter tempers;
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
we buy more but enjoy less

We have bigger houses and smaller families,
more conveniences, but less time;
we have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,
spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast,
get too angry,
stay up too late, get up too tired,
read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life,
we've added years to life not life to years.

We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have
trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We've done larger things, but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait.

We build more computers to hold more information to
produce more copies than ever, but we communicate
less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion;
big men and small character;
steep profits and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce,
fancier houses but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers,
throw-away morality, one-night stands,
overweight bodies, and pills that do everything
from cheer to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the show window and
nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology
can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose
either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved ones,
because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up
to you in awe, because that little person soon
will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you,
because that is the only treasure you can give with
your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say "I Love you" to your partner and
your loved ones, but most of all mean it.
A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes
from deep inside of you.

Give time to Love, give time to speak, give time to
share the precious thoughts in your mind.

(By Dr. Bob Moorehead)

Earlene will fly with you. She has wanted to do a zip-line for the past couple years. Must be a second childhood thing. Me, I'll stay on the ground and take pictures with the other sane people.

That is truly nifty! Fine words.

I'm thinking that many of the social negatives are not true for RVMs.

We still need a bit of control now and then, hence the spouses. ;-)

Wayne - we're talking about a zip line not washing the roof of the Motorhome. But that may be what triggered her interest - thinking about the fastest way down to give you a swift....hug.

I agree. Just read it and thought it was worthy of some reflection given it being a new year.

Dave - we have come full circle - from the first post of this thread -

"Dave and I both owe our adventure to our DWs who enjoy laughing at us and keeping us in line."
