Yay Allen!
We had a great day today. Took grands to breakfast. Get them waffles and ham with cheese. But what do they want? Papa's rye toast. *facepalm*

Then we went out for a disc golf round. My first since the surgery, we had a blast. I didn't do bad at all, energy level was fine. I won, btw...so I got to choose where we ate dinner.

I wanted sushi, and fried chicken, so Chinese buffet! Then we went to the cheap seat theater, and saw Game Night. It was hilarious and I recommend it highly. Cracked me up multiple times.

Now we're home icing knees and ankles cuz we're old.

So typical, the man says four words, the woman says FOUR Paragraphs. Welcome Allen, I'm Tim the sane one among the crowd. Happily married for forever but I do have 7 chicks on the side!

4 words or 4 paragraphs, happily married for forever is the key. Click image for larger version

2 what you dont have and dont miss

Or something like that.....
Di... if memory serves me correctly, and it may not any longer... I think Dave may have sworn them in in Oregon... he swore in several folks at that time, but I don't recall for sure if Kopfmans were in the bunch or not, there were at least 2 sets of folks I believe.

Unlike Tim, our sane & caring mutant, I'm not quite sane, but I do care. I'm also about as far from the house on the IL farm as I could get for the winter. About as far as the RV would get us, anyhow.

I hope to meet you & that grandma person in person one of these fine days, especially since IL is not such a huge place we couldn't find each other!

Cheers, & welcome aboard!

Rainbow -- revered by all RV mutants as the best place to be. Rainbow riding is being in travel mode as an RVer.

Mutopia - the ultimate RVM world where every day on the Rainbow is perfect and all Mutants live in harmony, traveling without being attacked by the boogie monster or trolls.

Wonderful, Barb! Thanks.

May I respectfully suggest that the titles below were the originals:

Grand Poohbah -- RVM1's
and
Great Potentate -- RVM2's ....
(Great does sound better with Potentate, doesn't it?) 🤔

Of course, YMMV (Your Memory May Vary).

See how respectful I can be? Unusual, eh? [bowing, scraping, etc.]

🤣

I'm impressed!


Ha Barb should we acknowledge the members of royalty we have amongst us. The member anointed with his title by no other than the Queens own Martin. Known by many commoners as Mr Round or Wayne but now known by the official title of Sir Cumferance.

Then there's those mutants deemed worth of their titles by those attending the Maine GC. Those that camped high on the hill, as opposed to down with us commoners. A position allowing them to look down their noses at us, of course that's King Richard and Queen Ann!
