The wonders of water in the desert! My little fountain runs 24/7 amongst the garden planter boxes, and it draws various birds wherever we park. Usually here in the desert we attract doves, sparrows, & the occasional migrant finch.

Today was a first: hummingbirds! Couldn't get PoP for fear of scaring them off. I am sitting barely 8' away, & there they were, scrapping over who gets to go first. Typical hummingbird aerial combat.

Playing catch-up again...

Tim, you asked about how I shimmed the hinges. I used a screwdriver to pry up the screen door (my junior high woodshop teacher just rolled over in his grave...Primitive Pete rides again. Anyone else see those cartoons in shop class?) then inserted a couple of C-clips between the screen door and MH body hinge sections. I added a couple more at the next higher hinge also. You'll have to look at that particular. hinge arrangement to see if that would work. Unfortunately I had to buy a really big box of assorted clips so I probably have a lifetime supply now...

This is Joe Kopfman, and my Wife is Teri. I am from Kansas, but grew up in Colorado. Teri is a retired High School Art Teacher, and is still coaching track, and is very involved in our local community here in Fort Lupton, Colorado. Teri is from Junction City, Wisconsin, we both like to ski in the winter, and hiking in summer. I am a retired Machine Shop owner and engineer that likes fishing, and camping. We have two children Girl in Fort Collins, CO and Boy in Laramie, WY. I am also Lucky to have Donnie and Colleen as Aunt and Uncle.

We were able to reserve a place at Mill Creek Campground from Sept 17 - Sept 25., and are really looking forward to seeing everyone. We will leave Colorado right after Labor Day, and stay by Teri's mom in Junction City, Wisconsin until the 17th, it is only about 6 hrs from there to Mackinaw City.

A late Thank You Barb for the RVM Dictionary, it is priceless.
Dave those were great Looking T-Bones.
I also like the sound of that- Kopfman and Kopfman maybe a sporting goods store?
Hey just wanna say welcome, welcome!!

Di, Richard, did y'all see the 4 1/2 inch hail pics on Facebook from White Hall. We got hail and lots of it, stacked up on deck, but was pea size. That from White Hall was bigger than the Hail of a GC.

Went out to start the old girl after a week on the battery charger...no go. Chassis battery lasted 3 years do to lack of use.

It may be time to sell the nice old Dynasty at a loss like most things I've brought.

Some friends are bringing their filth wheel over for a last party next weekend for a last Howrah, firewood and pit ready. We'll eat, drink and I'll then put a few bucks in the Moho that I won't get back.

It sorta reminds me of my boat experiences. It wasn't meant to be.

RVM 123 is signing out.
