Not really...I'm in a splint currently. It's a marathon, not a Sprint....and results won't really be appreciated until the marathon is finished.

Did you hear about the guys from Minnesota traveling with 500 pounds of marijuana?
Their GPS said its not about the destination, its the journey man.

Iím amazed they could find their way. But maybe they were headed from Mexico to Los Angelos and took a wrong turn in Albuquerque?

If you are headed near the Seattle area Iíll be there. Have you planned your US route yet?

Morning, Gang!

Hey thanks for all the suggestions re: generator. Allen and talked about it, (me reading him all your comments), and we're gonna try running his c-pap with the inverter (he says he's pretty sure we have one; if not, we'll get one). He's gonna make double sure about the power draw on his cpap machine first. We'll pull the Onan out (why keep it in there if it's busted) but hang onto it in case we decide later it's worth fixing. Good suggestions also to just spend some time in her and find out if a genny is really needed, considering we won't be spending extended time in her. Thanks again for all the suggestions.

Di-- loved the pictures from lunch. You guys looked like you had great fun the other day!

And welcome to the new RVMs! Carol, don't tell Beverly what's on that broom handle. She may never take it from you then!

Prayers for Dwayne's dad, Marty, and all the rest of us needing healing!

Had a fun time last night figuring out what's wrong with our gas clothes dryer. Air flow is good, initial heat up was good, but heat sustained not good. It's a Kenmore-- we have personally had the best luck with that brand. This dryer is 18 years old, still a long life to go. It just needs a sensor replaced, apparently. Simple machine so Allen just ordered the part. Kenmore chest freezer is 35 years old. A little rusty on the outside but still working like a champ. Same expectations on the dryer.


Have a wonderful day, youse guys.

Charlene

For those of you who have named your RV, that is beyond my RV's clever "Home", I'd love to hear how and why you chose that name. I know some of the stories, but what about the rest?

Ours was named after my paternal grandmother, Clora Mae Downing. She was an amazing woman. I wish now I'd recorded some of her stories!

She and Grandpa were married 66 years. After he passed away, she lived by herself for quite some time, and had lots of friends from the senior center and her church to keep her company. But 7 years ago she agreed to move in with my dad, her only child. He'd been single for many years, was living in Florida, and wanted to have a roommate. So Grandma moved across the country to be with him. They rented a very nice house in a senior only housing tract.

2 years ago, he had a heart attack while out on a date with a friend. Grandma and I had kept in touch all through the years, so she asked her neighbor to call me. I flew down to take care of Dad's things and move Grandma up to Illinois with me.

We flew Allen and our oldest son down, had them pack up everything in a Uhaul and drive it up ahead of us; then Grandma and I went on our "Grand Adventure", driving my dad's red Mustang convertible from Florida to Illinois, with a detour in South Carolina for her to meet my youngest son and his family.

We had the best time on that trip. Laughed, she told me stories, we stopped and ate in out-of-the-way places. I'd talk with her about all the things we'd do together, the trips we'd take together. She'd never been to the midwest, and I was excited to share that with her. She'd nod and smile; I had no idea at thetime that her spine was simply shattered. She never told me. We were using a wheelchair for convenience, because she wasn't too steady on her feet (who is, at 95???). I had to find out from an ER doctor when we got up here to Illinois, how bad it really was.

After the hospital, we brooked no objections and she moved in with us. We installed chair lifts and carried her where we could. She was a tiny thing and only weighed 87 pounds, so she wasn't hard for Allen to carry. But she was just too frail; and the loss of my dad was just too much for her broken heart, in spite of all the great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren who surrounded her when she moved in with us. She quickly slipped into dementia, and we had to restrain her in bed; she kept trying to get up in the middle of the night to go to work!

She was only with us for two months. Hospice was wonderful, and they did their best to help me through it. It was some of the hardest two months in my life. But I know where she is, and that she lives because our Redeemer lives; so the adventures are just on hold, not gone forever.

After Grandma passed on, we used some of my inheritance to buy the RV, and of course there was no other name to give her except Grandma's. Whenever we've gone somewhere in her, I can't help thinking, "Oh how Grandma would have loved this."
