Oh. Wanted to share this with you.

So last January, a year ago, I decided to go low carb with our daughter and daughter-in-law. Each of us wanted to lose some weight and we figured it would be better if we had each other for encouragement and accountability.

Out daughter has a fantastic weight loss story and I'd love for you to get to know her. She already knows about the RVMutants!

So she has started this thing where she offers meal plans for people who want to lose weight but don't know what to buy, or what to cook. It's called Meals With Margo.

So this video is our daughter, Margo, and son-in-law, Ryan, talking about how to get started losing weight and how to track your weight loss.

I think you guys will get a huge kick out of them! Even if you've no interest in losing weight, these two are funny and engaging.

Keep an eye on it, if it keeps going down there could be a leak somewhere in the system or the seals at the brakes could be cracked and leaking. Look for fluid leaks behind the wheels.
Now keep in mind when I say older or newer vehicles, I might have a different idea than some. I bought a 1958 car in 1984 for my daily driver, used it until 1994 (replaced it with a newer 1969 car...), then stored it until I sold it 3 years ago...
What was your 1969 car? I learned to drive stick from my boyfriend who became my husband. He had a 69 Firebird, then a GTO, not sure what year that was, '69 or 70. This is the first vehicle I've ever bought on my own. My son rode with me the first time I drove it and had to keep reminding me I wasn't driving my little Corolla. Takes way longer to stop, and no where near the turn radius! Feels a little top heavy going into uneven driveways too. I need a sign on my dash, "NO DRIVE THRUs" Still have to measure it to see what my height actually is.

Filethis--
Dust and Broom Official Pass-Off! Here ya go, buddy. Nevermind the um...mess on the handle...
Yep we're in the same boat with a non-standard parking lot purchase. You just hope what you have to invest in her doesn't cost you more than it'd have cost ya brand new. Have fun at the RV show this weekend!


Ewwww! What is that? Wait, it's green! Did you kill some ants with that?
I did have fun at the show. So many people, HUUUGE rigs. There were some pretty interesting pet contraptions too. One was a wagon with a small camper set on it with three little poodles riding in it.
So far so good on the new old home. Not a problem driving over 300 miles. I just have to check out the inner systems now.

Oh, Ed and Jackie are in our area. We went to DRunch today at Kelly's (Anyone who has been here knows what Kelly's is) and I took pictures but they didn't come out very well. Must be the camera. No PoP but I can assure you there will be more GTG's and picture takin'.

There may be a mini or even a midi-c down in a few days or so.

Earlene made a Tres Leche cake. I told her to make the one without the calories and carbs in it. It turned out real yummy. Ed and Jackie took some home with them. We'll find out their verdict later.

Just can't stay caught up...
The 1969 car was a Mercury Cougar. 351 w/ automatic. Fastest car I ever owned. Daily driver until mid-2004 when my Mom passed and I got her little red 1990-somrthing Buick Regal GS. (I've owned 3 Buicks, all hand-me-downs from family). Drove the Regal until late 2006 when I got t-boned. Drove the Cougar a little more (yes I still had it) then bought the Mustang. We get together some time and I'll tell the stories about how I got the Cougar and the Mustang.
