SPOTTED THIS FELLOW COMING INTO THE WICKENBURG AIRPORT AT CACTUS TOP LEVEL THIS MORNING
Well not too much going on today folks but Pheebs & I did manage to get out for a ride & walk for a few hours this morning. After being in the Motorhome for a few days I figured Kelly deserved a break & some quiet time.
I’m afraid my blog reading has really slipped in the past year or so but in trying to do a little catch-up with some friends & fellow Bloggers I was reminded again how helpful Karen & Steve’s blog has always been to many ‘do-it-yourselfers’ over the years. Steve is one of those ‘fix-it’ guys who likes to do things himself so below is just a small sampling of many renovations he has done to their Safari Serengeti Motorhome. You can also find a lot of home renovations Karen & Steve have done as well. RVING: THE USA IS OUR BIG BACK YARD::
COATING A MOTORHOME'S FIBERGLASS ROOF -----= INSTALLING A PROGRESSIVE INDUSTRIES EMS SURGE PROTECTOR ------ INSTALLING AN OLYMPIAN WAVE 8 CATALYTIC HEATER ------ A TOUR OF THEIR 1996 SAFARI SERENGETI DIESEL MOTORHOME
In a blog comment Tuesday reader Phil asked, “Have you ever been to Alamo Lake”? My answer to that is yes we have & you can see our visit there on December 11th 2012 by clicking ALAMO LAKE.
Glad I’m not staying over at Dennis & Donna's place in that Florida State at the moment or else I’d have to be wearing my water wings every time I stepped out the door of their 5’ver.
Now that the dust has settled from Bloggerfest 2016 & my nerves are once again relatively intact I’d just like to say how nice it was re-connecting with old friends & meeting a few new ones along the way. Only unfortunate part was not being able to take time to chat longer with people but at least initial contacts were made & that’s what Bloggerfest is all about. I was a bit overwhelmed by some of the nice things a few folks quietly said to me & I so much appreciated their kind thoughts & meaningful words. I’m afraid I am not a relaxed or confident conversationalist when meeting new people & it was apparent to me while talking with a fellow RV Blogger Saturday when I found myself stumbling for the right words in response to his complimentory words of encouragement, gratitude, & understanding. Maybe one day we will meet again at another time & another place. May those long Colorado mountain trails always be with you my friend:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Sally walked in to the Dentist office to make an appointment. “How much do you charge to pull out a tooth?” She asked.” “It’s $130”, was the prompt reply. “$130!” gasped Sally, that’s ridiculous! There must be a way for you to go cheaper.” “Well,” said the Dentist thoughtfully, I suppose if we don’t numb it, we could knock off $30.” “Only $30?,” countered Sally, “that’s still $100, you’ve got to make it cheaper.” “Well,” said the Dentist after a long pause, “I suppose if we take it out with a wrench we could knock it down to $50.” “Perfect”, said Sally happily. “I would like to make an appointment for next Tuesday, for my husband Jack.”
Glad you made it to Blgggerfest was so nice to see y'all again. It is hard to chat with everyone in a large group, but was still a great way to contact people. I had a hard time as well meeting people I just put on my public face and do it.. usually lost for words or just blab endlessly Has never been easy for me either , believe it or not.\Now we can relax too.ReplyDelete
I'm sure you did just fine at Blogfest, Al.. Anyone who is a regular reader knows that those 'big crowd get togethers' is out of your comfort zone ...you aren't the only one who feels this way .. I'm positive there was a few attendees who felt the same way. I would have been in that group as well. But the one thing about doing a blog and reading other blogs it makes it seem like you are already friends even if you never met face to face.. I hope that one day our paths will cross and there will be some time for a 'good ole chin wag on the front porch ..ReplyDelete
Even if you don't say anything - it's good to see you and Kelly and the magnificent Pheebs.ReplyDelete
Yes. I, too, wish Mark many more hikes on those Colorado----and Utah---(maybe other states), too. Both you and he expend great effort to put out wonderful posts. It was good to see your pictures of him at Bloggerfest. Both of you very dear to me!!ReplyDelete
I'm afraid I'm not much of a conversationalist either. I would like to go to bloggerfest at least once. This year I'm staying in Mesa to help out my family with grandchildren. Maybe next year. Glad you got to go again, even for a short time Al.ReplyDelete
Your subject line made me misty-eyed, as I too am a fan of the "mountain man." As a long time follower, it was a pleasure to meet you, Kelly, and Pheebes finally!ReplyDelete
Love the low flying airplane, so cute! Always nice to step out of our comfort zone and survive it. And then to be able to process more of it after the fact and realize we really enjoyed it - that's the best.ReplyDelete
AWww shucks ! Thanks for the shout out! These last two weeks I have re-posting my most popular blogs about motorhome modifications. We have been marking time during the end-of-life vigils with my dad and now my step dad (funeral on saturday) So we have not gotten out in the motorhome for vacation yet. Looks like later next week we will hit the road to bring mom back to their home in Florida. So no desert this year for us. Sigh. But will be good to get out of this snow and ice and cold!
