Good Afternoon, Holy Cats, Frank, I missed your post this morning, must of posted about the same time as I did and I didn't look back. We've always worked with whatever we had around, I know about putting the hitch back took me awhile to figure it out too. Bap, here in the great northeast anything can happen with the weather at any time. Popeye, I was getting asked what was people going to do when the TH was done......... welllll.

Nick Russell of Gypsy Journal fame closes his daily blog post with a "thought for the day" And that was on it a couple of days ago.
I agree that it is true and worth repeating for those that haven't "seen the light"

Nice Terry,
Bet Eleanor is having a blast at the balloon fest. More rain last night, started about 11:30 and was off and on most of the night. Turned out to be a beautiful day yesterday afternoon and evening.
Popeye,
Nice saying, no truer words have ever been spoken(or written)
Frank

Wise words Popeye! A great way to live your life.

Terry, hope your flatbed buyer shows today, always helpful when a project funds some of itself.

Terry, not sure we all can wait patiently while you do other chores? We have a truck to rebuild.

This winter thing is getting in everyone's way. We have a couple more months in S.C. before that all gets in the way.

Good Morning, Beautiful morning here sunny and 65* supposed to rain later tonight. Frank, Eleanor and Katrina go every year, its their thing, have gone for 4 or 5 yrs now, I'd like to take them to the one in NM that is supposed to be a big one. Lloyd, I know, I dislike doing those other chores they always get in the way . Winter also seems to get in the way every year, very inconvenient. Bap, the balloon festival is held up towards the foot hills of the Adirondacks, in Lake George, its held every year this time. well got to get ready to load a flatbed, (hopefully). Have a Great Day All.

Really like watching the balloons. They have a weekend balloon festival in Yuma. They launch from a city park just across the river from the RV park we are in.

We have had some land in our park as well as a couple drift just above the river in front of us.
