John Denver had a song years back called, 'Some Days Are Diamonds,' & the first few lines of the chorus goes... 'Some days are diamonds, some days are stones. Sometimes the hard times won't leave me alone. Sometimes the cold wind blows a chill in my bones. Some days are diamonds, some days are stones.'
A WET WALK ON THE PIER
Depending on our circumstances, our personalities, & our attitudes, it is generally possible to control what kinds of days we are going to have.....or want to have. We are all responsible for our own feelings & depression is the power of negative thinking. Some days are diamonds, some days are stones!!
It was a nice sunny morning in the neighborhood until the thunder boomers rolled in over the lake this afternoon. I actually had a 3 hour mobility van run Tuesday with another one scheduled for Thursday morning. Nice to be out & about doing something useful. One of the main drivers has a month of holidays coming up shortly so I am hoping to have some constructively busy & positive days ahead of me.
Deciding what kind of car to tow behind a Motor Home can be a daunting task. So many vehicles to chose from. Four wheels down, tow dollies, automatic or standard transmissions, makes & models!! For us the decision was easy, 4 wheels down & standard transmission. Kelly & I are both old stick shift drivers from way back so that made the decision easier. No transmission coolers, etc. Honda CRV's were our first choice but good used one's were rare as hen's teeth & super expensive to boot. Decided on a used 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe & have never looked back. Only 3 things to remember before towing....1. Key on Acc---2. Emergency brake off---3. Gearshift in neutral. That's all there is to it. Great cars. If your thinking of buying a Ford Escape though you might want to check out ROD'S blog first. He is in the market for a new tow vehicle & has been doing some detailed research!!
Kelly has been following the adventures of Pepper & her Mother traveling around the country in their Class B van. They do get themselves into some tight spots occasionally so I have added them to our 'Blogs We Follow.' They are, LITTLE HOUSE ON WHEELS.
