Anything and everything that could delay this happened - They sent it to my SD address, I lost some gift cards that I needed to add in, etc, etc. today I finally had all the obstacles jumped, or so I thought. Their website wouldn’t accept my order. So I called customer service for the 10th time. Instead of being angry, I played the sympathy card.

I worked! I got the discount via an override by the lovely lady on the phone ... AND .... I will still get a 10% discount on the first order I put on the card.

Wait til you see all the holes I plan to dig on Notta Ranch! I am putting geothermal cooling pipes into Connie, my planned ground level fish tanks for aquaponic gardening are a go, and I might dig a root cellar for cooler storage. Plus, I do think it will be great fun just to play with.

all I can say you are one amazing person, looking forward to meeting you some where some time.

Boy, do I have you fooled! i’ve always believed that I could do anything that I set my mind to doing. I told my daughter when she was about 12 years old that the only job she couldn’t have was being a sperm donor. My ex husband used to say “that’s woman’s work“. Anybody wonder why he’s my ex?

I’d love to meet you and Rebecca too! I think it would be fun to have a GC in Arizona this winter. Maybe we can find a park in Yuma that’ll have enough space for us. A lot depends on whether or not the Canadian border reopens.

But don’t fuss over a fire pit. Just put some red food coloring in a jar…. You guys are still lucky enough to get together.



I miss you, I miss the get togethers, but we just cannot travel… Larry rode with me to Bradenton, FL to pick up a grand from camp and was exhausted for a week….



Enjoy that you can get together. I will have to just enjoy being a ‘’has been’’……


No comments at all?
ok, I am a has been….. (tear drops)

A has been!
Yeah right!

You know we all miss you two. My advice is stay rested up, you never know when a FLASH GC might break out right in your front door! Also remember some of us are battling our own issues along with this COVID mess and for the record, camping in your RV barn is no fun!

a GC in AZ would be fun, been talking to Rebecca about going west rather than south this winter. I know when the border reopens that the campgrounds will be full.

Be careful Bull. From my experience for every job that needed a back hole or excavator operator they also need 2-3 hand shovel operators.

No instructions but I might be able to help you. I’ve been watching the road crew working on the highway here. It appears the big big boss sets in the truck with the AC on. The big boss has a clip board with papers so he can fan himself while talking to worker #1 who has a shovel handle tucked under his arm and leaning on it. Worker #2 is in ditch leaning on shovel and wiping sweat.

Must of been a fellow on a back hole that dug the ditch.

Lol…. Thanks Tim. And yes, that is why we haven’t been back to Ark to visit…. We have a rv that Larry has never slept in, I spent one night with grands in my yard. But we do use it for day trips..

I think moving to FL gave Larry a new purpose….

This year has been tough on many areas. We have been less impacted than most areas, thankfully. My prayers are with each of you and your own struggles…. Physical and material…. I try to celebrate each day, just because it is another day….

Lol, and I will never be a has been…. You know me…. I JUST MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH….
