Boko... Decorations? It's not December yet...LOL! We'll make our contribution to the festive Gratitude meal and take it with us when we travel 2.5 hours over the river and through the woods to uncle Gary's house this year.... Then Sunday, we will have our Last Sunday of the month get together and whoever shows up gets to eat, but we probably won't do turkey as we will be turkeyed out by then... Generally I have my sister who lives in the area and my kids an grands.I believe we get a set of one of my sons inlaws this year too , might be crowded... but it'll be chaotic and fun. No room for decorations!

We'll probably hang the Christmas lights on the awning when we get set up in Yuma in December, then light the 2 little Christmas trees for a few weeks. Come New Year's, the Christmas lights come down and the flamingo lights go up until we roll up he awning and start the trip back East again. With just the 2 of us and family so far away, we don't do much of anything special at holidays any more.

There is no pain, you are receding. A distant ships smoke on the horizon. You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.

Lots of chores & took a quick trip to shoot the Elk around Ponca, AR...


Hope you & family & all the Mutant nation a very Happy Thanksgiving!


Oh, BTW, many Elk shot with iPhone & even got one of Queen Ann shooting a large herd with her iPhone too.

Very nice RV Park just north of Ponca at top of hill looking over the valleys..

Irrelevant signs e.g. flagman ahead, workers ahead, fines doubled in work zones, etc. when it's obvious no such thing is alongside the road at 10:00 p.m. should generate a fine to the construction company.

With all of the bit^^ing going on about drivers and threats of very high fines if caught doing this and that, the companies need to be requiring to take down senseless signs at the end of the work day.

Drive thru a coned zone for 5 or 6 miles and all you see is a committee of 8 hard hatters standing 20 - 30 feet off of the shoulder of the road.

Just a personal pet peeve. As are 4 year construction jobs that should take only two if the busy, lowest builder wasn't chosen to do the job.

Huh, in Connecticut it's the highest bidder that's also the busiest as he's some friend of the DOT purchaser/approver...or worse, higher up!

I've seen "Work Zone Ahead" signs that remain for almost a year past the completed project. I'd agree with Steve about the construction companies getting fine if I didn’t know they would build the fines into their bids.

I've also noticed that there are always at least 2 watchers for every worker. That's the job I once wanted, but I never could figure out how much the watchers got paid.

Beautiful place Dave, but a little too cold in December for me. Still, nice scenery. Yuma will be warmer

Hey.......
So Martin has asked why such a large box used at Amazon for little batteries?
Now that I have sent out thousands of packages I can offer up an explanation.

Some batteries require a warning sticker which cannot be folded around corners, thus a large box must be used. Also the box must be sufficient size for the shipping label. Finally the software will suggest the box size, usually a couple sizes too large.
