Ok Marty, I'm no seamstress but I have sleep on a lot of sheet plus visited lots of fabric stores, just ask Jim and Paula!
I'd go with flat sheets adding length to both top and bottom and make the added length into pockets that the mattresse will fit into. Then add length to a top sheet and sew it to bottom/foot of the bottom sheet and there you go.
Oh I forgot, add 6 to 8 pillows, don't know why you need that many but they always show up!

You could buy a mattress topper for the cabover bed and just put regular sheets on it alone. I think full size would come closest to fitting.
Close top home, as it is a 'shake down' trip and none of the state parks are open yet... so LaCygne is where we will go. I prefer it to the local state park anyway...

Shipshewana - hey that's where we might go -again- this Summer.


Okay youngsters, it has been 58 years for us and in a few days 59. I don't know how I have put up with her for this long. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

If you are not close to Florida, just delete....
Sending this out on all sites, so we don't miss anyone.....

Hernando Beach, FL 34607
Monday April 6 ..... or Wednesday April 8....

Can you do a Florida west coast mini C?
Nola and I were discussing and wanted to find the best day,
so am doing a quick poll to see IF anyone wants to come, and
IF you do, which day is better for you?

Decided weekends are harder, plus in the snowbird season weekends are horrible to try to go out to eat.....

Suggested plans are to meet up here at my home,
then go to a local restaurant.... times and restaurant to be decided.
Then after lunch, come back to my home for visiting etc...

I will provide a dessert... we can visit under the house (sounds lewd) or in the case of bad weather, upstairs..... but downstairs I have swings, hammocks, picnic table with chess/checkers and tictactoe, a kayak, and a pedal boat..... my cargo lift might be installed by then if you dont do stairs well.... I am replacing the yucky formica with quartz, but if it isnt done... its ok...

So, let me know, in a few days, if you want to come, and which day is best.. polls will close Friday night.... you can email me, or post here...

Its raining in Southern Arizona again! This has been a wet winter, for sure. I cant wait to see all the wild flowers that will be blooming soon.

My water capture system is all connected. For each inch of rain we should be able to capture 350-400 gallons of water. I have 3 IBC tanks that each hold 330 gallons. There was already about 250 gallons in the 2 tanks that I had already connected so I was afraid that they might overflow. So, I donned my raincoat and Gorton's fisherman's hat and went out to connect tank #3.

Gosh, it sure feels good when things work like you planned them! I have RVM Bob Caldwell to thank for getting the roof done, along with many, many other things. I cant wait til the rain stops so I can see how much water we have ... in the desert no less. Im so happy Im doing back flips.

Here is what the system looks like.

Why are you standing on your head?
Or, are you trying to impress Sena and hanging by your feet?
