It's a trick question, stop counting the top and bottom.

Thank you Di for the info. That was a test question to see how many knew there was 8.

My son the preacher, recently took a CDL test to drive the church bus and was asking if I remembered my test. I actually drove a truck cross country before they had CDLs.

Wayne when you took your first driving test did you have to get certain riders for both mules and horses?

R U an RV Mutant too?

Change of plans. We will be in FL on March 15 for 2 months!!!
We want to be around before our DGS is deployed.

We truly hope to have RVM gatherings during that period, for lunches and casual meetings and such, as may be cooperatively designed by the RVM residents there about.
So, who’s gonna break the RVM ice with ideas on my humbly brilliant plan?
Maybe cotillions East, Center, and West?
As usual, food, hugs and laughter are the main catalysts. 🤪

I stopped at another Habitat for Humanity Restore today and scored a great front door for Connie. Only cost $40 and had the deadbolt and a handle lock included. No keys, of course, but I can take the tumblers out and have keys made. I also found a little cabinet for the bathroom for $20. Connie gets a little funkier with each trip.

At first I thought I wanted to put a barn door on the outside, but given the corrugated metal, there's no way to seal it. Instead I'll use a barn door on my bedroom or bathroom, maybe both. Sliding doors use less space and the hardware price is getting better.

I imagine many of the snowbirds will have flown north by then, so park space might be available. Where in Florida? And where is DGS being sent?

Not that it might matter out where Barb is, but some building codes prohibit the use of sliding doors for exit purposes because they can't be 'panic' opened by someone crashing into them...even those automatic sliding glass doors will swing open if you push hard enough (why the sliding part is usually on the outside).
There, today's bit of mostly useless information...

Crantastic! We will be just then moving west from Pensacola to Foley (AL), adding another 30 miles or so to any cotillion trips eastward. Where will y'all be?

Yes, we scored a lot near Hayden’s house in Lakeland. Colleen and Hunter are East of there, Di and Larry to the Gulf side. I haven’t located the Wohlford abode yet. Who else is in the area?
Sue and Martin will be near Pensacola.
DGS goes West, to the Orient.

It looks like Lakeland will be visited more often and for longer periods. Funny how that happens!
