MAX & THE MOTORMOUSE aka CORA:))
Kelly was up scratching around at 4 a.m. so that was the end of sleeping-in till noon for me & the Motormouse. A few minutes later the whole gang was stirring & before long we were checking off the final few things on our checklist. I had hitched up the Jeep late Friday afternoon so the rig was out front on the road ready to go. A few last things to load & a final farewell to the house. We all switched our sticks & bricks hats for our RVing hats & had the big wheels rolling for the great American Southwest at 6:03 a.m.
ALL ABOARD EARLY THIS MORNING:))
Quiet morning drive but was surprised at the amount of snow on the sides of the road just south of Grand Bend. Saw a police cruiser in the ditch so we knew there had been ice. Roads were wet & our rig & Jeep are now caked in road salt. Thirty five miles east of Sarnia we ran into fog & five miles later it was snowing. Crossed the big Bluewater bridge into the U.S. at 7:30 in rain. Nice border guard fellow with a sense of humor spared us another border horror story, wished us a good trip & head us on our way by 7:40. Wow, two years in a row with no trouble. Yes Toto, there is a border crossing paradise:))
OUR FIRST GROCERY BLOW OUT THIS TRIP AT BENTON HARBOR'S WALMART SUPERCENTER
By the time we reached Cracker Barrel in Lansing Michigan the sun was out & we had a nice day going on with big bright warm & friendly sunbeams pouring in the windows. Hadn't been to a Cracker Barrel for breakfast since returning home last March & it was nice to have a big hearty breakfast again. Made it to the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Benton Harbor by 2:30 & that is where I am typing this from. Kelly has gone in for groceries & then we'll move next door to the Lowes parking lot for the night. Hardly a flat piece of pavement here at Wal-Mart!!
GUESS HOW COLD IT WAS EARLY THIS MORNING!!
Sure nice having this Verizon Air Card. Around Flint Michigan Kelly plugged in the card to a USB port on our laptop & seconds later we were on the internet. Now how convenient is that. No fuss, no muss, no bother & Kelly was able to check all the emails etc. without ever having to get out of her seat. Some days I think we just have it tooooo darned good:))
BIG YAWN FOR THE MOTORMOUSE & SUPPERTIME IN A LOWES PARKING LOT.....BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN
Oh, & our biggest dilemma so far? We totally cannot find the remote control for our onboard Toshiba flat screen television. We have turned the coach upside down but it is not here. Very strange because we never would have taken it out of the rig. We are going to walk over to Wal-Mart or Best Buy after supper & see if we can find a Universal remote. That is always the best way to find the lost one!!
OUR NEW COMPUTER CORNER IS WORKING OUT FINE
GROANER'S CORNER:(( If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it ,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
Then You Are Probably ..... The Family Dog!
UPDATE.... Kelly programmed the new Universal Remote from Wal-Mart & it works fine. She has been trying to reprogram me for over 17 years now but just hasn't had the same kinda luck......I think I might need a new set of batteries!!
