OH OH, THE WORLD HAS TIPPED OVER..............OR, REFLECTIONS IN A POND:))
To-day was basically a repeat of yesterday in that I spent most of it at home still working on our computer move project. Mainly it was just a matter of getting everything put back to-gether in some reasonable semblance of order. I even turned my bed around to make sure I wouldn't get up on the wrong side of the bed anymore!! Now how's that for consideration:)) Kelly just worked the morning so we spent some time hanging a couple new curtains this afternoon. I usually run out of patience with that sort of thing but I managed to hang in there for the duration. MOUNTING A CURTAIN ROD THIS AFTERNOON
Our neighbor-lady Monica across the road took us out for supper to-night. We don't see Monica a lot because she is quite a traveler herself so she thought it would be nice to get to-gether for a bite. There's a nice place beside the Bayfield Harbor called, The Docks, so that's where we headed. I had heard they put up a good burg & fries so that's what I had & yes, it was very good indeed. Monica hadn't been into downtown Bayfield for awhile so after supper we took a drive around the village. This is truly a beautiful little place & it's no wonder people come from far & wide to visit here. There are no buildings over 2 stories high & those few buildings are on the main street itself. The cozy architecture of all the homes & cottages is well worth the drive here to see. And then there are all the beautiful yachts & sailboats in the harbor. Very creative, very colorful, & very Bayfield. THE DOCKS....FORMALLY KNOWN AS, THE HARBOR LIGHTS
Had some interesting comments on yesterday's blog as Jerry over at OUR LIFE ON WHEELS mentioned about family seldom responding to his blogs at first. We have noticed the very same thing. When I first came across this blogging thing I figured it would be a nice way to keep in touch with friends & family & maybe exercise a little creative writing bug I've always had. I was obviously excited about the idea but unfortunately I mis-judged others enthusiasm. For some silly reason I assumed folks would be interested in our travels but it soon became apparent that was not always the case. I had one good friend tell me outright...."I don't do blogs!!" Oooops, sorry. That one knocked some of the excitement stuffing's out of me for sure!! Other family members are getting up in years & not quite as computer savvy so I sent emails with simple instructions how to put our Bayfield Bunch icon on their desktops. But nope, they just didn't seem interested!! Kelly has a wonderful bunch of kids & I thought for sure they would all be wildly interested in our adventures. Wrong again!! I guess I just have to put myself back in that age group again & ask myself if I would have been interested in where my parents were & what they were up to. Probably not because I was too wrapped up with my own life at the time without caring much about older people!! MONICA & KELLY CHECKING THE MENU.....FORTUNATELY WE GOT HERE BEFORE THE CROWD
Probably 95% of people who follow our blog now are total strangers from far & wide & I'll bet the majority of that 95% are RV people which afterall makes sense. It's basically a travel blog so there is a thread of commonality there. But, I have also noticed something else these past few years. RV folks understand RV folks & home folks alike because RV people were once homebodies themselves. However, it seems many home folks don't understand that wandering nature RV folks have & are puzzled why someone would want to live in box about half the size of a railroad car. As like any groups of a feather, there is an underlying understanding & bonding of people on the road. There is a coming to-gether of thoughts, plans, & ideas. People tend to look out for one another & it's no more evident than right here on the internet. Oh yes, there are personality conflicts & mis-understandings like anywhere else but as a whole RV people seem to care & as a rule are friendlier. One of the main reasons for that could very well be the mobile lifestyle itself. Kelly & I usually don't stay in one spot long enough to get on anyone's nerves & vice versa. There are people out there who don't like dogs so we have a tendency to keep to ourselves. We don't get involved in campground politics or group personality problems. We don't belong to any groups or organizations although we were once Escapee members & might consider joining again at some point. By flying solo it keeps our people stress levels down to a manageable level as well. Yes, there is a definite downside to traveling like we do but that's another blog topic for another day.

Anyway, just a few of my thoughts to-night on why we like the wandering gypsy style RV life while we're on the road. And remember, we are all different folks with different opinions & we all have lots of room for improvment. And besides, you can't catch me long enough to stay mad at me forever anyway:)) COLORFUL BUFFET TABLE
