But Martin, does Tony have an RV? That you complete the small world theory.

I've heard the 2 best days in a boater's life are the day he buys it and the day he sells it. True?

Barb and those thinking about banners, what would be wrong with the RVmutant design we have in black & silver on our mugs? we could do it black and white or any other color I have 2 insulated coffee mugs with it on it and a coffee cup that is white with the design in black on it...I'll attach a pic from my phone as it is easier...

Here's the story: Sue yesterday posted that we had sold our boat on eBay. We had owned it for 14 years and we're not quite as agile in getting into and out of it. Also the nearest lake is still 50 miles away. The auction was very quiet for about 5 days, although there were many views and quite a few 'watchers'. I then got a few questions from a potential bidder, called Tony, one of which was asking if I could defer pick up until after 14 June when he would be returning to his address in MN from the UK. He also asked what my reserve figure was and I suggested he started bidding incrementally until he hit it, which he did. It stayed quiet until about 30 seconds before the end when all hell broke loose when another bidder chimed in and he and Tony went at it until the end, lifting the bids another $700, until Tony won. I sent him a note congratulating him and giving my cell number to call me when he got back from the UK. (The deposit was paid withing 5 minutes). "I'll call you tomorrow morning" he said. On answering the call, I immediately realised that he was a Brit. Yes, he said, of course I'm a Brit, I live here! It's difficult to explain clearly what Tony's into but seemingly, it's all to do with old American cars and hot rods which he gathers in the US and takes back to the UK to sell. He also said that he has a house down in Bonita FL, with a dock on or near the Imperial river, and that is where he wants to take the boat, not up to MN. That is also where a good friend of ours lives and the river where Sue and her Naples KOA friends used to kayak. We then got to talking about old cars and I briefly told him of my discovering and visiting my old Jaguar down in New Zealand with the help of a guy named John Starkey who had owned the car after me in the 60's. John is also an ex-pat Brit, now living in St Petersburg FL, working as a writer on motoring topics and acting as a broker for Lola Cars. Oh, said Tony, I used to own a T70 (Lola) and I know John well! As I said, it's a small world.

Tony will be visiting us in a couple of weeks to do the paperwork and make the final payment. I have agreed to hold onto the boat until such time in August when he drives down to pick it up and carry on south. I expect we will have a lot to chat about. I don't know what arrangements he has to be living over here but he did say he prefers to be domiciled in the UK because of the much better health care system. Thanks for reading this - here's a picture of the boat.


Yes! Very small world.

Many of us older, err, more senior mutants have mascots. Some of them, like Rocky, were pre-RVM, while others, like our ChocoMoose, were bestowed at various GCs, appearing from #1's Opening of the Kimono.

We love stories, ya know. If you tell us about your noddyhead, maybe others will chime in with their mascot stories. How's about it, folks?

Our mascot & reliable navigator. Since Queen Ann dosn't know right from left, I had to replace her....

As far as the story: When we bought our Minnie Winney, Grands suggested many names, but settled on Mystery Machine cause Zane could be Shaggy (Fits), Jessica could be Velda the smart one (fits), then a quick call to Rebecca & she quickly exclaimed "Great idea if she could be Veronica the pretty one". So I was named Fred..

Now that was settled. But what about Granny???

Kids began to giggle when all quickly selected on the Monster!!!!

I even had a mystery machine license plate made for front of RV.

Then loaded up for cases to solve.

Did you ever have a pet Tribble? They were brightly colored furry balls about the size of a soccer ball or slightly smaller, with googly eyes glued on, and a string at the top, and when you shook the Tribble, it would giggle. Had one when I was a youngster.

Rooby rooby roo! The Scoobster was my favorite show as a kid, and now my oldest GD is also a huge fan. I always wanted to dress as Daphne for Halloween!
Love your mascots and the great story behind them, and how the grands got involved too! License plate was a perfect touch.

Since I've already double posted....

So last year when Allen and I were away in a trip, DD and DDIL (whom we shall henceforth refer to as the family instigators) decided to leave us a present. Googly eyes stuck to ALL the photos in our family room. Cracked me up when I discovered what they'd done, so much so that the googly eyes are still there. It really represents the sense of fun that permeates our family.

Yesterday I made a witty reply to your post, don't know what happened to it. In fact I don't even know what I said but I'm sure it was funny. Guess I forgot to hit send. Good mini-c I'm sure.

We sold our largest boat last year after 21 years. Always kept inside, ran and looked great. It was like watching one of our kids drive away.

Although my previous suggestions were great ones, yep staying consistent with our brand would look good. Of course adding Bob and Marty flying overhead would be cool!

That was post-meal. We all had the same thing - prime rib. It was very good...

Personally, I’d like to see something more fun that more accurately reflects the group we have become.

Morning, Tim! Yes, I know what you mean about that bit of heart twinge watching it drive away. I felt that watching our 1972 Starcraft popup camper drive away a few years ago. I'd done some great mods to it, added a king size bed, mini fridge, and portable toilet...and allot of literal blood, sweat, and tears as I gutted it. And swearing. Can't forget the swearing.

Warning, a few serious words from Tim.
The designers of a mutant flag need to keep in mind the cost per flag will decrease proportionally to the numbers sold. Finding a design that will sell the most flags is paramount to an inexpensive flag. That is all, now back to the typical Tim!

So very small. My condensed story. Think motorcycle. Sitting in an MC dive and as all good Marines do when they see another Marine holler "Semper Fi." He came over and we started talking. Thirty seve years prior we were in Guantanamo Bay Cuba together. Not only that he was a "watch stander" and I was the NCO In Charge.

Very small world. I hope when you two get together you have many more things and people in common.

Just think, you may have more than just Tim and me as a friend.
