The great State of Pennsylvania has Punxsutawney Phil & we have Wiarton Willy right here in Ontario. These guys give us an indication of spring weather every February 2nd, but British Columbia has it's own Autumn Prognosticator. (a forecaster: someone who makes predictions of the future (usually on the basis of special knowledge) WANDERING WILLY has just come out of hibernation, did not see his shadow, has predicted an early winter & is scurrying about making travel plans to head south. And, Ivan from ROADTRIP 2010 is already on the move & dropped in a few days ago to help Wandering Willy shake some of that hibernation dust off himself.
Worked this morning but had the afternoon off for a Doctor's appointment. Well, that was the plan anyway. I had the right day but I had the wrong time. I thought it was a 2 o'clock appointment but it was at 10:30 this morning so I totally missed it. They rebooked me for November 2nd with a stern wrap on the knuckles & a 'be there or be square' warning.
And, if you haven't heard, RICK & PAULETTE have just bought themselves a spanking brand new 5th wheel. Check out the details & I think they are hoping to take delivery of it this Thursday.
Excitement is also building right now in Sacramento, California. GYPSY is well on her way to tracking down a Lance truck camper for her pick-up truck. Sold her big 5th wheel finally so things are once again on the up & up:))
SAM is scrambling around by himself for a month in Pennsylvania I think, & it looks like the folks at RV LIFE ON WHEELS are hitting the road Thursday for the great American Southwest. JERRY & SUZY are already there, but then again......they just happen to live there. But, they are on the move as well with their rig, & just spent a night at RUSTY'S RV RANCH in New Mexico. They are now probably at an Escapee rally in Columbus NM. We spent a few days at Rusty's at the beginning of last November. And let's not forget RETIRED ROD who is now home from the hospital but has already got himself suspended!! Well, sort of:))
RV travel excitement is building right here at home as well & tonight after supper I almost carried a pair of socks out to the rig....................10-4!!
GROANER'S CORNER:(( And here are some laws of the natural Universe..........
Law of the Workshop:
Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.
Law of Probability:
If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal.
Law of the Bath:
When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.
Law of Close Encounters:
The probability of meeting someone you know increases when you are either with someone you don't want to be seen with, or you are looking your worst.
Law of the Result:
When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.
Law of the Theatre:
At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive last.
Law of Rugs/Carpets:
The chances of an open-faced jam sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.
Law of Middle Management:
Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.
Until one has loved an Animal, part of their soul remains un-awakened.
