PRIORITIES CHANGE, CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE, & WE AS PEOPLE.......CHANGE
SOME FARMER’S JUST HAVE MORE TIME ON THEIR HANDS THAN OTHERS…SEEN WEST OF MITCHELL ONTARIO THIS AFTERNOON
Thunder, lightning & rain came stealing across the lake last night waking Kelly & knocking out our electricity long enough to reset all the clocks & timers this morning. Thanks to my Zopoclone, I slept right through all the fuss.
My Uncle Harry had some health concerns the past couple days so Kelly & I slipped down to see how he was doing this afternoon. He was looking good in his gray pants & pink shirt. Last week when we got there he was having a shave.
Over the years we have all read many posts by RV folks. We have followed Full Time people as they excitedly made their transition from sticks & bricks to wheels. We have followed Snow Birders busily readying their rigs for another season in the South. We read about all their hopes & dreams, their plans, their apprehensions & their fears. And, in many cases we continue to follow many of these folks for years in their changing lifestyles. It's exciting, it's invigorating, & it's enlightening as new & old RVing Bloggers eagerly keep us informed of their travels. But, not so much…….when travels end.
Kind of seems to me like old RV'ers just sort of quietly fade away into the mainstream from whence they came. But I'm sure they are all much the wiser for their traveling experiences. And, we the many readers are that much the wiser from reading their many experiences as well. We all have to understand how our priorities change, our circumstances change & most of all, how we as people change. Check out recent Full Time RV'ers Terry & Martha from GYPSY LIFE JOURNAL as they deal with selling their Motorhome & transitioning themselves back into a much anticipated & welcome sticks & bricks lifestyle.
Some good info from commenters Wednesday about dogs & onions. I knew about chocolate being bad for dogs but not onions. When Pheebs & I split a sub I generally pull her Tuna chunks off the bottom of the Sub.
HAVING A BIG SNOOZE ON DAD’S LAP TODAY
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Winston Churchill once said, 'The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter' & Ronald Regan once said, 'The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the Government and I'm here to help.''
