Thank you all for welcoming me into Martin's world of Octogenarians.

We are on the road and presently in Gulfport, MS., with next stop Maxwell AFB, Montgomery, AL...then to Bremen, GA., to have IFS Stabilizers installed. After that a slowly trek into Tenn. and a visit with Chuck and Sara. Then to Ohio to visit with another friend. (Yes, I do have more than one...well okay, he's my son's friend.) We have four more to visit in Noblesville, IN. Papa Steve and family and a friend and his wife in a retirement home that we have known since the '60's. Then the land of the SHIPWRECK.

So Barb, no home cooking but we did go out and splurge on a seafood meal. Must say I've had better at home.

Can y'all say "rain!" No what Di might be going through but we have had rain every day since we left July 1st. Doesn't look like it is going to stop any day soon. There re some spots of no rain so Lexi and us can track through the puddles for potty time (for Lexi Tim).

Mary Ann and I are looking forward to seeing you two. Keep us informed as to the date of your arrival.

Anderson KOA is a nice park. We were there in June (just can't afford the place any more...). We're a little farther up the road just outside of Gas City right now.

Well campers, we had a harrowing experience today. We were on Maxwell AFB and following their detour signs to the FAM CAMP (Family Camp for those not in the know). Keeping our eyes peeled for the turn off there was a tree branch that must have been one of Tim's tree family 'cause there was a loud, make that very loud thump and when I looked back through the mirror i saw some debris falling from he MH. I cannot explain the feeling of "grief."

No place to stop so we continued on to the FAM Camp (RV PARK for those not in the know) and once here I checked in and got the number for a local mobile repair. Neither Earlene nor I were going to go up on the roof. Earlene did climb the ladder until she was about waist high and took some picture. They did not appear to show any damage but I really thought that was impossible. The Mobile repair man, Tim, (The good one.) came out within the hour and climbed on the roof.

This first picture is looking down the driver side of the roof. Really can't see anything.

When I zoom in you can now see the MaxAir cover with a piece missing and cracked to the bottom,

How can I possibly say how relieved we were when told that was the only damage. Thank you Lord!

I'm not sure if any of you have tried purchasing RV parts but according to the good Tim parts are harder and harder to find. Tomorrow the search starts.

It really could have been a lot worse. Guess what? Two other RV's caught the same jumpin' Tim's tree branch today and another last week.

Got it. As you'll learn at the GC, my memory is shot in the a**. For Easter I was able to hide my own easter eggs. The past two years have been tough on me. Lost weight and memory in equal amounts.

I wish "I" had some of that loss!! I keep finding it.


Oh, and before our last trip as we were loading the MH I put a collection of Best Buy gift cards in a safe place. They are still very safe..I need to put something else in a safe place so I can find them.

I am sure that I am the undisputed Master. I have so many things in safe places that no one will ever see them again



I am trying to break the habit of putting things in safe places, but I forget that I am not supposed to do that any more.


There is no hope






My kids think that they are getting an inheritance -

Yep, I have white duct tape covering 2 spots where I encountered jumping solar panel supports. (Trees down here are more like bushes and not much of a threat.) I just call it "my Arkie fix".
