Gordon,

rvpopeye,
You must be the only one that don't drink coffee how do you do it?
I heard this weekend I'll be a Great Uncle again, Nephew and his wife are expecting there 2nd child in December. To bad my sister isn't here to see her Granddaughter and the next one.
I took the 64 for maybe the last road trip yesterday. Needed the heat on with the top down. It was well worth it. Went over to a buddy's house too see his New to him 2014 Benz 550,man is it sweet.
Took the MH out too get propane and took a few pictures of the fall colors.
Getting Short, hoping this week will be departure time, I'm ready. Although it's only in the 40ties my arthritis is really starting to kick in.
I get my stiches out tomorrow afternoon and am hoping to get the okay from the Doc to head south. Then by the End of the week we'll be out of here. Really looking forwards too the Road trip.
That's about it from her.
Those on the road be safe,
Tim

Good Morning Everyone (from the corner. Where BAP, MK and I are enjoying a leisurely coffee and chat);

I might add that we are upgrading our seating to really comfy chairs, a stereo playing relaxing music and a vaporizer with some aroma therapy stuff. There is a rocking chair to share and a nice sofa for two to curl up on. Now look up, look WAY up and we can call Rusty. Hi Jerome.

Right at freezing here. Heavy snow warning south of us. Looks like we will be selective on our departure and may decide to wait. Watching the forecasts and road reports with interest. Not particularly interested in trying out the traction in adverse conditions.

Have a safe trip home Charles. Hope you find less damage than you anticipate when you return. Does sound like you will be OK from the reports.

Lynne - sounds like you are having a great time. Had me going there for a minute. WOT is short for "Wide Open Throttle". It appears that WOT is WOT and you are enjoying it immensely!!
Best to you BAP. Praying for the surgeon to have steady hands and an angel sitting on his shoulder guiding them. Going to be a big improvement.

Frank - hope you and Rita are not tuckered out - yet. Grand children are such bundles of energy and thankfully are able to energize us just by being with them.

Tim - it is looking like you might be in Yuma before us. Drive safe. See you and Joe there.

Popeye - no coffee - no worries. OJ or cranberry juice on tap. Perhaps apple juice or grape?

Have a great day everyone.

Signed
Corner Clatch Crew

Morning All,

Gordon, WOT is Women On Target. They are a NRA female based unit. Introducing females to self defense and doing it safely. A woman cannot compete with the muscular strength of a male so has to learn differently to protect herself. We are getting a lot of college girls and women who have lost their husbands and are now alone. I love this program. They had a great time yesterday.

Sunny today, coffee was good, and am looking forward to a beautiful day. Frost on the ground this am, guess it's coming. Need to winterize the rig. Hoped to get out one more time so holding off a bit but not sure.

Watching Secretariet, one of my favorite movies. Had to have amazing to be there for that race.

Hope all are doing well. Still waiting on some votes for the CG choice. If no more by Wednesday I will send out the winner. Those having surgery (Bap) keep safe and prayers with you, those traveling, prayers with you too. Have a great Sunday!

Lynne

Hello all. Coffee/cocoa was good this morning. Hoping all are well or getting there. Glad to hear the hurricane did little damage to the group. Lynne, thanks for letting us know what WOT stands for. I was thinking Women Of Terror. I mean, your handle is BEAMISL Be a missle. You know, FOCUS. Looks like maybe I was not that far off.

Visiting my mom and motor home this weekend. Sister took off a couple of days and went to coast to visit with girlfriends from high school. They do that every year or so. Yesterday was her birthday so a good way to celebrate. I am doing a little maintenance on MH, hope to make a short trip later this year. Most of my time is taken getting Round Rock house ready to sell and getting Taylor house ready to move in to. I am getting pretty old to be doing this stuff. Later all, stay safe.

Gee you get sent to the corner and you turn it into some kind of lounge! Are you sure you're not related to Terry ? Or is he visiting after he finishes his project of the day ??
Your snow today is probably my snow tomorrow (or next week)
I"M NOT READYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Rail
I was wondering if those fast trains were electric?

Ron
Interesting observation of Lynne's user name , I'd never seen that before !

Lynne
WOT is also the name of a browser add on that I like , it's called World Of Trust
It is as a small icon that appears in different colors (Green ,Yellow , Red , just like a street light) to let you know how the site you are going to is rated by others that have been there , it also appears in a web search rating the results before you go there (and it also turns grey for a site that isn't yet rated) There is a way to add your rating of a site too.
I find it very useful!!!!

Tim
No coffee is easy I just never let myself get addicted to it.
And speaking of that , a whole month !
Me thinks you're gonna kick that monkey!!!!!

bap
Don't forget to use a marker to remind the docs which bones to fix , they might fuse the bones in your......NEVER MIND !

Frank
Legoland ! I never had Lego blocks but a friend's 3yo grandson decided
that I had to help him one day and it was fun !
(Every time I put some blocks on our project he would take them off and put them where they were "supposed " to be !
Post count results:
There is no result and we're all winners.......
The "contest" between the threads was never really a contest at all but seems to have turned into one of sorts........I actually meant it as a comment on how chatty we all are ,,,,,who ever would have thought this thread would have ever been able to catch up with the rebuild #s !
The small group sure has grown ! I'm glad I'm a part of it !

That other weather thing ---update.
OR popeye's weird science.......

Very happy all of our group has escaped with minimal problems.
And very sad for those that didn't................

The outer bands are raining down on me today ,,,, guess they were wrong , again! It was supposed to be sunny here . (I just looked at the radar and wind chart and the center of rotation seems to have moved away from the NC coast but the rain is still hugging the coast all the way up to the Canadian Gaspe Peninsula.) Everybody still getting rain keep your heads down , your nose will fill up with water if you don't !

I wonder if one of those hurricane hunter P3s could drive a "stake" into it and finish it off.(I guess if they could , they would have BEFORE it got started !)

Charles
I can picture you now , scratching your head and wondering if I'm crazy,,,
I am not ! My mother had me tested.................
My mind just operates on a different frequency than most people's
(High Cs , skuh kuh ku kuh kuh )

Goooodafternoon all yíall!!!

Iíve been enjoying my old alma mater. I always liked southern Illinois and the Carbondale area but Gail, being a lifelong suburban Chicago girl, really disliked it here so we never stayed in the area like several of my friends did.
This morning I had breakfast at the beautiful Giant City SP Lodge, built in the 1930ís by the CCC. After lunch I went for a hike and actually remembered to bring my good camera this time. I had a really great morning.

Come Tuesday or Wednesday Iím planning on continuing my travels to Chicagoland. The good news is, a friend may have found a dog for me, and itís right on the way to Chicago! Itís a small 45lb two year old golden thatís been field trained. The woman who owns it is into field trials and the dog is too small to be competitive against the normal sized goldens when it comes to crashing through tall grass and heavy cover. As for me, I could care less about such attributes. In fact, the small size is a giant plus for me.

Jeff, Iíll bet youíre excited about getting your back fixed and pain free. I know I would be.

All yíall in hurricane country, itís good to hear there were no injuries from the cyclonic event. Mother Nature helping us egotistical humans realize whoís actually in charge.

Tim, keep up the good work with the non-smoking. I may have a clue as to why smokers have a harder time with diabetes. One of the things youíre getting in cigarette smoke is carbon monoxide. Possibly not enough to significantly affect someone whoís otherwise healthy but possibly someone like yourself with diabetes might develop problems from that added CO in their system. Just a random thought and possibly yet another reason to not smoke.

Lynne, itís nice to hear about WOT. I always wondered why so many woman are anti-firearm when a gun is such an efficient equalizer and male libido queller, why wouldnít every woman want one?

Steve

Good Afternoon Gang,
Well survived Legoland, actually we had a very good time. It is really neat to see the various figures that are life size and made out of legos. One vampire hearse had 280,000 pieces and took 2400 man-hours to build. They call the people that put these together Master Builders and believe me, they are. Getting ready to go to the Medievel theater for dinner and show, it should be fun.
To all, the amount of posts from here and the Total rebuild sites just goes to show how good of friends that we have become through the wonders of this site. Having met a few of you in person, I am happy to call each and every one of you as my friend and am looking forward to personally meeting the rest of you.
Frank

Steve;
The dog find sounds "Golden". Hope the pairing works out for you. Pictures please if it does.

Frank is right. It has been easy to make friends via this media, on this forum and particularly on these two threads.

Good Morning Gang,
Weather finally hit fall, going to be high 70's today with a low in the mid to upper 60's. Going to be a couple days to adjust to the cooler temps, might even have to wear pants vs shorts.
Bap,
Thoughts and prayers for your surgery my friend. Speedy and complete painfree recovery for you.
Rail,
Nice pics, we are heading to Hollywood Studios at Disney World this morning, GS is going to have Jedi training, should be fun.
Steve,
Sounds like a perfect match for you, should make you a good companion.

We had a great time at the Mideivel show last night. Beautiful horses, good acting and delicious food.
Have a great day all,
Frank
