Maine Lobstah is something worth going back for!

Been doing a little research on the trip up to Mi. Thought I'd call my buddies around Nashville to see if they could park us on their farms for a few days. Luke Bryan said he didn't have room on his 200 acres, Garth Brooks said sure, but I live in Oklahoma and Johnny Cash said I'm dead man, didn't you know? Friends!

Before BigCo bought LittleCo, the CEO of LittleCo would have his brother come down from Maine for the annual picnic and bring 50-60 lobstahs he'd pick up that morning for around 20 of us to munch on! It was a blast every year, I'll tell ya that much!

Come on in the water is fine ... Cheers !!!


I heartily agree, Jeff!
Pogo, is the Journey Your Destination? It would be great to have you aboard the RVM Rainbow.
And please pass on our congratulations to your DW's parents for their 70th Anniversary!!

Mary and I just laughed not long ago when some of our friends ask us out to Red Lobster to eat. We settled on a steak house instead!

And yet our grandparents stuck mothballs in the closets inside their homes. I still remember the smell...
The comment about the big vs. little moths reminded me of the 3 samurai plagued by 3 mosquitos. The first one swung his sword and killed a mosquito. The second one did the same. The third one swung... and apparently missed. Embarrassed by his apparent failure, he tried to save face by saying, "yes, he still flies... but he will never reproduce..."

I read the info in that link and while they say "Don’t use mothballs", their only remedy is to let them come out and charge you $ to get rid of the critters. Not quite an unbiased account in my opinion.
Well, being in Texas all i can say is that you don't see any bullet holes in my RV so I can say I don't have rodents.

As for the "advertisement" blog on the dangers of moth balls, the link was the first one on the search page.

However, if you are looking for some from other than advertisers here is a start.

<http://npic.orst.edu/capro/mothball.html>
<https://ephtracking.cdc.gov/showpesticideRepellents>
<https://awaytogarden.com/battling-mice-voles-never-mothballs/>

and because I have a dog.
<https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-pet/mothball-toxicity-in-dogs>

If you read up on the subject the only sure way to ride a habitat of mice is to seal all the entry points. Kind of hard to do in a MH. All the hoopla of different smells that repel mice are just that, hoopla. (Sorry if I offenended anyone.)

Ha ha!

Regarding our grandparents and great grandparents. They did a lot of things that are now considered to not be the correct action. One of them I remember is putting butter on a burn, or letting a wound dry out is proper treatment. Swimming with a full stomach will create cramps. Chocolate causes face blemishes. And so forth. Yes I also remember the smell of moth balls but just because it was done then doesn't mean it is the right thing to do. It is dangerous. My mother used moth balls but she always had them in an air tight garment bag and the only time it was opened was when she needed to get out an article of clothing. Then she'd hang the clothing outside for a day to "air out."

From Earlene:

Ice Land, Moody Gardens, Galveston

Imagine, these have to maintain a constant 9 degrees to remain frozen. What workmanship, down to the whiskers on the ocelot. It was 57 outside during our tour of the lights at the Garden and the last night you could catch me out as our evening temps will range from 28 to 37 for the next 4 nights. Yeah, yeah, I know: I should be where you are.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year to both acknowledged Mutants and the Wannbees who frequent these pages. Love y'all and look forward to crossing paths with you again in the future.

Traveling to Manitoba last summer to meet some of Marcie's side of the family and then traveling to Oregon and meeting a bunch of Mutants and sharing the eclipse. Both trips were fun and we hope to meet up with the Mutants again.
There was a bad side as well but we choose to remember the good!!
