For those of us that have the interest, time, $$$, and desire, the Grand, Midi, and Mini Curiosities are experiences that bless our hearts and souls.

Friendly people gathered together to enjoy the friendliness of like-minded folks. No one is intentionally belittled, brow-beaten, or pressured to conform. Some folks don't enjoy our group because they don't know the difference between good-natured humor and ill-natured criticism.*

I love each of my mutant friends and I dearly miss all that have decided we no longer fit their "friend model".

*Lack of judgment sometimes is used in "discussion subject" choice or "political stance recognition" around a campfire, but we have observed the "rules" 98% of the time. A couple of "damn I shouldn't have said that" comments should not be a reason to abandon 98% of the whoopee type of fun that goes on at our gatherings.

I now return you to our usual friendly, well intentioned banter.

By the way y'all. I'm sitting here at the computer and looking at where I'm going to put the Mackinac pictures and I started looking at the other RVMutant pictures. All 500+ of them and I have this to say:


I miss y'all! Hurry up April.

Steve, you say it so more eloquently than I do.

Me casa, su casa! Please come visit again.

About the last Q GC... many fancy utensils were left behind. Carol and Dave, I am bringing the dog dish to Yuma Friday. I also have two rather attractive purple knives and a teal spoon, and a slotted tongs.

I'm Ed RVM#177 & Janice is RVM#177A, Even though we have never me you both, you very much sound like us. I try to remain very even keel and watch what I say. Sounds like we have missed out on meeting some very nice Mutants. I hope I'm never upset to send an email that I have express those type of feelings.

Hey Bev,
So that's where the dog dish went. forgot about it completely until now. So, more about this 'coming to Yuma Friday'. Is this a group thing or you coming by yourself?

We were back up in Q today spending (way too much) money. Ordered magneshades for the coach and got a new mobility scooter for Carol. Added 4 more TPMS sensors for the trailer tires and we each got a Hawaiian shirt. We left too late to stop by and visit, sorry.

Morning Muteys... every mutant is considered my family... don't see ya as much as I'd like to... but it's nice to stay connected in various ways., better yet in person! I'm getting antsy to get moving south for the GC in Texas this spring, but we will do our typical rush to get to the gang and then back home.

Ok, my confession time. Monday was spent in the emergency room. Thankfully with Bev to entertain and translate. Turned out to be a kidney stone. One shot of Toridol and I’m outta there and back home to drink gallons of water and strain it on the flip side looking for the offending stone. It has slowed me down some, but compared to other things I’ve survived in recent years, not really bad. The effects of the Flowmax and frequent bathroom breaks are most of what I'm grumbling about.

Yes, Dennis is struggling with internet access. Today he is headed to Yuma to get a hot spot which should solve that. BEWARE all ye jabbers! He's been saving up all the quips and will return them in mass!

Papaw Steve - your eloquence is unmatched. Thank you for expressing what many of us feel about RVMdom. Y'all are my "easy" family - the ones without all the baggage and family drama. I'm so looking forward to the April GC when we can meet again. The hugs and laughter are always marvelous!

Barb hopefully you'll have a near pain free delivery.

And I was beginning to like this New No Comment Dennis. Oh well, all good things eventually come to an end. Ah!

Speaking of GC's, how about some help with nightly entertainment.
A couple of pot lucks would be nice - more on that later.
Are the breakfast guys available? I just saw a picture that I have of Tim standing over the bacon on the grill and Papa Steve inspecting the bacon. Well that's what it looked like.


I'm thinking of two pot lucks but instead of all 20 rigs bringing something how about splitting it on bringing food.


How about the first 10 sign-ups provide food for the group the first time, and the last 10 provide food for the second time. It seems that we always have more food than anyone can even sample at our GC's. I think it would make it easier on everyone. However, anyone can bring anything at any time.



Opinions definitely appreciated. BTW, I'm not a good party organizer.


We need some suggestions/recommendations on entertainment (besides Tim and Dennis)

When I saw this post, it instantly reminded me of this.

If you are traveling soon, consider Lutheran Air, the no-frills airline. You're all in the same boat on Lutheran Air, where flying is an uplifting experience. There is no first class on any Lutheran Air light. Meals are potluck. Rows 1-6, bring rolls; 7-15, bring a salad; 6-21, a main dish, and 22-30, a dessert.

Great idea! I like that.

2 pot lucks sounds great to me. Half group provide for the first, the other half for the second. ..

Queen Ann said, we will go along with whatever the rest decide.

QUESTION: If you are not a good party organizer, just WHAT ARE YOU GOOD AT???
