MOM, DAD, & THE KIDS AT THE BEACH TODAY (Painted Turtles)
First thing this morning the Ophthalmologist office phoned to cancel my appointment for today. The eye Doctor guy was sick so my appointment was rescheduled for next Thursday at noon.
LITTLE MOTORMOUSE DOESN'T LIKE TO GET HER PAWS WET IN THE EARLY MORNING GRASS
Spent a couple hours over at Deer Park Lodge again this morning trimming shrubs & clearing some brush. It was the first time I had ever used a gasoline powered weed whacker. It sure makes my little electric one here at home look like a wimpy bowl of soupy porridge. Luckily a lawn cutting guy was there & was able to show me how to start the darn thing or I would still be there trying to figure that out. Had a short mobility van run this afternoon & that was about it for the day. I have a busy day on Friday with the company mini-van so that should keep me out of trouble for the whole day. Might be a good idea to take the laptop & get caught up on some emails between stops.
IT'S NOT OFTEN WE MEET ANYONE ON THE TRAIL
I thought KAREN IN THE WOODS had a particularly interesting blog post today on 'Rustic RV Camping.' Maybe not everybody's cup of RV tea but Karen explains why they enjoy camping with their Class A in rustic RV Parks deep in the wilds of the Wisconsin woods. She knows that some folks won't understand why they would do that......but I know why:))
SPOTTED THIS GREEN HERON BY THE WATER'S EDGE THIS MORNING
For all you truck & fifth wheel jockeys out there you might want to check out HOMER & LUCILLE'S post on their new Pull-Rite Super Glide hitch and Fifth Wheel Airborne pin box This sounds like quite a space age hitch they have just had installed in their Dodge 3500 dually. Comes with a bit of a Space Age price tag too but Mike sounds mighty happy with it's performance.
THE HERON TAKES FLIGHT, LANDS AMIDST THE TURTLES, & THEN TAKES FLIGHT AGAIN UP INTO A PINE TREE (click to enlarge)
I am way behind on my email responses again so Wilf, Nellie, Phil, & a few of you other folks who have emailed in questions, I have your emails rounded up here on my desktop now & will be answering them very shortly. I enjoy corresponding with people but my biggest problem is remembering to do it so I have to figure out some kind of fool proof system here so that I do not forget people. I know I have forgotten emails in the past. I know what is like to send someone an email & not have it answered:((
Janie & John over at FLAMINGO ON A STICK have an interesting post on their transition from house to apartment to RV. It will be of particular interest for folks in the various stages of 'downsizing' before hitting the road full time.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.
