Great people to dine with and a ton of fun during our varied conversations. We are looking forward to getting on the road but it will be hard to say goodbye to our new friends.



For those of you who have yet to encounter Dennis and Irene - Dennis has yet to meet a stranger, but most folks find him a bit, uhm, ...stranger than most.

Thanks all for the oohhmms, appreciate them.
Visit with cardiologist went OK, need a couple tests done before diagnosis and meds.

As far as fulltiming goes, consider the home a parking spot, very close to favorite grandson. The house is a fixer, without a mortgage.

First tasks today, get power turned on and see if we can warm the place up. Also have gravel ordered for a 40 ft drive for MH. Will be close enough to house to allow dumping into sewer clean out. Purchased a 50 amp RV receptacle yesterday, so MH will have full hookups while we renovate the place. Vistors can have the spot, when needed, our MH could be moved to DD house. Just remember to bring work clothes with you.

Ok, so just because you went to Dr don't forget your BP is still out of control! Things like electrical connections and spreading gravel can be added stress. Take care of yourself first and foremost.

(I was going to say, Let Jackie spread that gravel! But the new me decided not to)

Getting your BP under control is serious business. Sorry to sound like I'm preaching to you but we all know how your normal day is throttle wide open! Off my soap box now. Keep us posted!

Sue, Martin, Earlene and Chubby y'all look like your having a blast. I haven't checked but are all the Mardi Gas parades over? I was Hopeing to see Wayne in his new tutu and shirt dancing along the streets. My fear would be the number of beads he might collect! BIL said there are specific areas, I think along St. Charles st., that the parades remain family friendly and G rated. Keep the pop coming, wish we were there!

Welcome Monacoach, you are from here on RV Mutants, and if Di confirms my flawless memory on the Official RVM Lust, are RV Mutant 183!
As an RV Mutant, knowing your names and such will help out a lot. You can provide this info via the private RVM web.

Nope! He has two that hang around his neck. The important one says, "Mr. Awful." Mary has the "Mrs. Wonderful," just for putting up with him,

I spell that word differently when mentioning Tim. Have you heard him sing soprano?

Hey Y'all! I just realized that Sena will turn 22 on the first day of the Texas GC. My baby is growing up! I just wish I could get her out of diapers.

If you'd like to make her very happy, just wrap up something you'd otherwise discard. She enjoys anything she can manipulate - snaps, zippers, Velcro, caps she can unscrew, etc. Having them wrapped, even in newspaper adds to the thrill for her, and the addition of a small nut or piece of dried fruit will make a delightful gift.

Ha Barb I too will have a B-day in April and I also like bottles, cans, and bags of nuts. Cashews are my favorite and wrapping is optional although I like some rapping I can see a great party forming, we'll all go ape!
