Going flying tonight with hubby...he's been asking me a lot lately, so I need to go to get that out of his system...lol. Got my son working on saplings along the fence line... been too long since that's been cleaned up.next up will be getting the garden in shape, and then tackling the saplings in the flower beds. Too hot for me to handle it for very long out there, so he needs money, and I have w@%k for him to earn it. Sounds like everyone is enjoying their planning and adventures. Pics are nice... that way I can camp vicariously through them ... Seems like spring was maybe 2 days long this year in Kansas... we are full into hot now.

Glad it worked for you. Nice chatting with Allen also looking forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with him drowning flies.

This is wonderful! I enjoy any videos.
And your horticulture skills always amaze me.
Me bones be crying for dry air. We have had very high humidity and much rain since we got here on 5/1.

Fine words, Sis!
Papaw and Mary Ann, I see it as simply Mutating from one Rainbow Rider to another.
I can’t comment on trailers. We never had one that had more than a dry sink! But I’m very curious about what you will end up with.

Went to GS tournament ball game tonight. Both games, semifinals and championship game. They one won first place with a trophy as tall as most of the kids. GS got the game ball, he made the finale out by snagging the line drive out of the air for the win. A impressive dog pile ensued after that! It was two great games.

I will miss her....sorta
Well, yes, one does get kind of attached. Except I'd worry about stepping on such a critter. It sounds as if she'll have a reasonable new home, so all's well.

Hmmm ... no bird, no 'zard ... don't you need a cat? (Duck, run, hide!)

Didja have a good ride? Does hot air (less dense) make the flying more difficult or handle differently?

I've been cutting saplings too, & pulling grass from flower beds. Nice weather for it!! I work wherever the shade is, though, & often in the evening till I can't see what I'm doing any more.

No camping pics from us yet. Martin is offering our boat on Ebay, so is anxiously watching the watchers. Auction ends tomorrow afternoon, so maybe there'll be extra money for our trip to England in October. Or to spend in MI.

Cheers!

Aren't you lucky, though? It looks like a great setup for the whole famdamily. (Almost as good as Tim's racket, err, um, hosting gig.)

Cheers!

We saw a convoy of these as we drove to another town to see A class units we were interested in. It was great to see four (maybe five) of these units wondering along the winding road we were using to get to the RV place. The big smiley face was so apropos for the unit.

The dog pile at the end of the story made me chuckle. Big congrats to your GS.

Oooooooo. I love the smiley face. The rounded shape. What IS this charming thing?
