Don - btw - you won't believe what Texans can do with eggs and tortillas. You will need to ride many a mile to keep from gaining the weight I need to lose. LOL. I think you will enjoy south Texas. The RGV has lots to do. Maybe you can try some big bass fishing. Find a guide and try Falcon Lake. Or go to coast and get offshore. A good guide will have everything ya need except a license, put ya on fish, clean it and wrap it for the freezer.

I named the picture, "Decisions decisions, where to go next."

The good looking one is me, okay, so it's Miya.
And the smart one is Miya.

Hey! Just because you met the both of us is no reason to take liberties with our intelligences, or Miya's.

Snow advisory!

Hah! It's not always OUR fault, LOL.

From the Weather Network today -

"A winter storm originating from Texas is bringing snow across the Nickel Belt and Nipissing areas today. Snow will be heavy at times. Snowfall amounts close to 15 cm (6 inches) are expected by the time it begins to taper off this evening. In addition, northeast winds of 30 km/h (18 mph) with gusts to 60 (37 mph) are expected, especially in open areas. Visibilities will be reduced in blowing snow as a result.

Motorists should exercise caution and adjust travel plans accordingly."

Taken from the comfort of my window.

Ah, those Texans have broad...shoulders. They can handle the blame this time.

Love the view out your window. My kinda place!

Cheers!

Some times dogs don't have to be very smart to be smarter than the owner.

Gunny, Thor and Miya are all proof of that.

This was taken from my driving window yesterday. I live at the end of this lake.

Sue,

Catarac surgery was the easiest of the 20 surgeries I've had -- quick and painless. One thing to consider now that should be even better by then. They now make bifocal implant lenses. I have them and don't need reading glasses. It's great! They are a pricey option that insurance won't cover. Mine added $4800 to my bill. I was only 56 when mine were done so I figure it is about the same as 20 years of paying for Rx eyeglasses. I should come out ahead. I do have contacts to compensate for my astigmatism, but rarely wear them.

[QUOTE="Wayne M;1853925"]Don, this is the picture I was trying to get to the other evening. Make sure you show it to Gunny and Thor. Barb, it is only 167kb in size so you could load 5,988,024 of them before you reach 1Gb (couldn't resist, hee hee) I named the picture, "Decisions decisions, where to go next." The good looking one is me, okay, so it's Miya.[/QUOTE

Look at that handsome fellow! The man isn't too bad either!

RVM10 here - just checking in. I did visit the new web site - very neat.

DW and I are in Evergreen, Colo. at our eldest son's home- for Christmas. Looking forward to seeing Kids, Grandkids, and Greatgrandkids.

We will return home, finish loading the 5er, and head south by the 28th. Should be in Tonopah, AZ on the 30th. Can't wait!

Barb... We totally dropped our s&b internet service with comcast, and now only have the wifi with Millencom..... About the size of a pack of cigarettes, MUCH cheaper, and we just pick it up and go..... DH has even taken it is his pocket to a dr visit.... We run 2 laptops, 2 ipads, and 2 wireless printers with no problem... Hasnt seen to be any slower.

And to all about cataracts... Had my first eye done when i was 39, second one done at 50... I am now 62, i do wear one contact lens instead of reading glasses.... Medicine is improving each year.....

Cold here in Arkansas... Low tonight is 28...... Who sent this to us.... I will gladly send it back until after we head south in January......
