But I get the distinction. What is a patty melt I wonder?

I'm going to stick to the cleanliness element in defining a sammich. I don't think it matters what is between those pieces of baked flour, rather it invokes the question "Can I eat this on my lunch break with a beverage in my one hand or do I need to sit with both elbows on the table, stuff this in my mouth, then visit the restroom to wipe the excess off my beard?"

A sammich would be the former.

Hey RVM70, this is RVM43 wishing you welcome. When DW and I started to contemplate quitting our 10yr on water adventures I was concerned about how I would adapt. Luckily I found this twisted bunch of mutants. You know when you're cruising you make friendships quickly due to them being fleeting. Always moving to the next anchorage, port, Tiki Bar!! These RVM's have been like that. We've never met (hope to fix that at GC) but they've really been supportive. Great advice and encouragement. You're gonna love this group. We pick up our coach tomorrow, and will spend a few weeks settling in. Then off on a new adventure. See you on the RVM Rainbow!!

I've always been an early riser and likely always will even once I throw in the "W---" towel.

It's my wife who has the issue with getting up and getting on the road early. I'm usually up 3 or so hours before her when on holidays. I should devise some kind of restraint for the bed and "strap er down" cause I could pack a lot of miles in before the grizzly came out of the cave!

Oh.....the reference to the grizzly is what it's like waking a grizzly out of hibernation to getting my wife up early......it ain't something you want to subject yourself to unless absolutely necessary!

We are happy if we get moving BEFORE 11am.... That has become our usual departure time.....

I'm with Moebelly about the sammich. Anything best eaten warm and dripping doesn't qualify.

But Moe, pics of these thunder thighs will NOT be posted for the world to see and knees and thighs are too close together when the incision is over 9" long. You wanna see these new knees you'll have to come to the GC@CL and pray for shorts weather.

One of the downsides of knee replacement is the added weight the new hardware has provided. Just another plot to make calculating my BMI (body mass index) irrelevant.

Sena returned to being her bratty self after 2 days of enforced close proximity. I leashed her to the bed where I was spending 99% of my time. I'm now able to be up for longer periods of time and Sena has taken full advantage of my increased mobility to demand more food choices.

My right knee continues to awaken me at 4 am, much to my frustration. The rest of my body is in the sleep until a decent hour camp, say 9 or 10 am. After all, I am retired.

Without staples to walk on, Lily returned to sleep with us after a 2 weak hiatus. She also learned an earlier awakening time. That she will have to unlearn is she wants to share my bed!

Ok, right knee exercised, time to finish sleeping. Scoot over, Lily. I'll see y'all again at a reasonable hour.

But isn't mutanity a verb also? As it is an act? Or is it more of a synonym for community?
I did not win the powerball.
I too like my meatloaf samich with miracle whip, not ketchup.
After all those years of rising from bed before 5am, I have now learned to sleep in til 6am sometimes 6:30. But we generally think we are doing well to hit the road by 9AM.

I'm thinkin that #32 may enjoy such joys at 3AM, but #1 has not even seen 10PM for years, let alone an AM less than a 5, which is my ususal time to rise.....with the sun....rope lights not required. ;-)

Nomes and windmills and garden statues?
With all of that, where do you keep yer grillin stuff?

Showing legs & Primates

Barb - I in no way implied or suggested I needed to see your knees, but it just may be worth a trip to AR to inspect the incisions

I must admit I am totally intrigued by Sena. I would think that monkeys are way too independent minded to have with you and I'm sure that I would never have the patience you have to take care of her.
