Lynne,
I'm so happy for you, and you will be pleasantly surprised as you meet the people on here. When Rita and I first left home after retirement, we went to the IRV2 rally in Amana Colonies, Iowa. What a wonderful experience, met some of the moderators from here and they are really good people. As you know, We met Bobby and Sally this spring, and hope to meet with Terry, Jay and You this summer.
Tropical storm Ana is moving further north from us, so we have sunshine and warm for weather.
Curtis,
By your post from last night, it sounds like they bad weather has moved away from you.
Frank

Good morning all, Lynne, very glad you finally found your MH, I'm sure there will be many happy times ahead. Certainly glad all the bad weather seems to have moved away from both coasts for now, saw an RV park on tv that got hit with one of those tornados, not a pretty sight, no one seriously hurt that's the good thing. Have a great day all.

Well it's another day in North Central Texas!

It's almost 9:30 am and it's pitch black outside.
Raining buckets again. Lakes are finally coming up. It keeps this up we'll be Kayaking the Trinity all the way to San Antonio.
Wind is blowing hard, but according to Melissa it's not over 70 MPH.
I need to go ahead and put in the Propane conversion in my generator. But so far we haven't lost power through any of this. Blinked a few times, but no outages.

Ron we should talk about where your Nephew is located in Rhome. He might be my neighbor.

I rode my Motorcycle yesterday morning around the surrounding Countryside looking at the Tornado Damage. Lots of power poles downed in the storm, but my buddies, who are still working for the Company got the new ones up already. Some really large trees down and the neighbors are cutting them up for firewood this winter. Ought to be about right.

I saw a few Mobile Homes messed up and my Neighbors barn is gone. Sheet metal spread all over the fields. The storm reported as hitting Rhome, but it actually struck the Community of New Fairview. Their City Limits are my back yard property line.

I've been there played this Tornado game before, only this time I don't have to work. So it was kinda nice to just go look. Although there are a LOT of Gawkers driving the little roads looking at the damage and not paying attention to where they are going. Almost got ran over 3 times. And with all the folks parked next to the downed trees with their trailers behind their pickups while they chop up the trees makes it a dangerous place to be riding a motorcycle. Didn't see anyone short on manpower so I came home. Guess I'd better check my chain saws to see if they will run.

We are going to be under Rain Alerts for the next 7 days. Good thing we are 865 feet above sea level. And 375 above the closest lake. Otherwise I'd be building an ARK.

Don't worry about us. It's called Pre Summer in Texas.
My Red Oak trees are loving it!


And Melissa is having a ball playing with her Weather Apps!!!!!

Good morning all;
A lovely day here. Grass is growing, birds are singing (and building nests) and I have been outside enjoying the day.

Hope you are all experiencing the same joy I am.

Good Morning!!

Coffee is pure perfection, as always. Wish you were all here to enjoy it.

Lynne - I have to agree the folks we have met on here have for the most part been stellar! We really need to set up a rally for next year so folks can plan it around their travels.

Looking forward to meeting up, goes for all of you. As I said on Terry's thread, we will be building out the place in OK this year and the door is always open. Full RV hookups and a shop to play in. There will always be someone there even if we are not. The town is Woodward, Oklahoma. Good fishing and boating nearby. You can check out the veterans training program while you're there too.

Glad you're safe and sound. A lot of flooding up north in OK as well, not where we will be however. Thank goodness.


Have a fabulous day everyone. Be safe.

Good evening all,
Day stated out bright a sunny with a nice breeze, it is now mostly cloudy, but still a wonderful day. Mid 80's and the breeze makes it real comfortable. Only a couple sprinkles, but no rain. Had a couple of 45' Prevost's come in and park a couple spaces from us, they sure make our unit look puny, lol. May all have a wonderful evening and sleep well tonight.
Frank

Hope everyones day was healthy and productive! Well I figured out what was wrong with my welder, the range selector switch sounds like Captain Crunch! Can hardly turn it . But got it going enough to finish welding my exaust. Never a dull moment here, just playing around finding things that need fixing. I think I might encourage Sally to go look for a new motorcycle to ride after we go to closing! And the mortgage company finally figured out they were overcharging us on escrow on the house we live in, got a check back for $3300, yay! That was after Sally got on the phone with them a few weeks back. Sally says hello to you and Rita , Frank! See Ya all later, Bobby

Good Morning All,


Just watched a Robin land on the window ledge and walk back and forth looking inside. The bird feeders are empty so must be a message to get them filled up. Jerry usually fills them at night but we have a raccoon who has been visiting at night that he wants to discourage, so birds don't come out to full feeders anymore.


Coffee is good. Sitting here trying to NOT be too excited and for the most part have it under control. Seems almost surreal since I have never seen the rig. It is missing the passenger side mirror but got that ordered and on the way to Curtis's place.


Curtis, Jerry and I also love to watch storms. If one or the other sees something brewing outside we get the other and stand there and watch. I will have to ask Melissa about these storm apps. Sounds interesting to me.


You all have a good day. To any Mothers out there, have a Happy Mother's Day! Lynne

Lynne,
Happy Mothers Day to you, and all the other mothers out there. We always put out the bird feeder, right now it is hanging from the side bracket for the window awning, when we set up for the winter and the ladders are off the rack in the back, we hang it from there. The biggest problem is to keep the squirrels from getting to it.
Curtis,
We hope that everything is still good at your place.
Have a wonderful day all.
Frank

Thank You all for the Happy wishes.


I am making homemade rhubarb pies. Just picked the rhubarb prior to making the crusts and they are in the oven. UMMMMMM they will be so good.


Can you bake pies in a MH oven? I assume but it would have to be one at a time. Cause when we meet up I will be baking pies for you guys. Especially for those birthdays.


Have a great day! Lynne
