OUR FORESTS ARE QUICKLY GREENING UP
Rains, heavy at times, came in the night and stayed for most of the morning. Had a couple options. Leave the recently washed and shiny cleaned up Jeep in the carport or load up the Pheebs and later return home with a mud wagon. Well seeings how we didn't go anywhere Monday it was a no brainer and we headed off to see what we could see. Up to Goderich for coffee, harbor run, and back home by 11 with a reasonably clean Jeep despite it raining non stop all the way. Luckily even I knew enough to stay off the mud soaked country roads today.
SURE HAD US A WET JEEP RIDE TO GODERICH THIS MORNING
NICE TO SEE THINGS LOOKING SO NEAT CLEAN AND FRESH IN THE COUNTRYSIDE
NO SIGN OF THE FARMER IN THIS MOTIONLESS TRACTOR OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF A RAIN SOAKED FIELD
AT THE BEACH I STAYED IN THE JEEP WHILE PHEEBS HAD A WALK AROUND IN THE RAIN
Rains ended late morning and skies began clearing by early afternoon. Checked my energy levels, saw that I had a few extra units to spare so started right away on cleaning the Motorhome’s bins. Everything out of the bins, vacuum them all out thoroughly and about a third of the stuff back into the bins. Cleaned up the 'wet bay', generator, checked the 4 solar batteries and cleaned up the electrical bin as well. For a 15 year old Motorhome it's still in great shape and lookin good.
ALL THE RIG’S BINS ARE NOW CLEAN
HOSED DOWN OUR OUTSIDE RV MAT AND SURE HAD A LOT OF CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA DESERT DUST COME OUT OF IT
Several readers mentioned our decision a few years ago to downsize from our 2003 Damon Challenger 33' Motorhome to a smaller 2013 Chevy 23’ Sunseeker Class C. (Our Chevy Sunseeker Link) Yes that was a mistake on our part but we then compounded that mistake with a second mistake. We traded that smaller Class C in on a larger Class C. (Our Ford Winnebago Link) Nope that didn't work either and we ended up selling that Winnebago Access 2011 27' Class C to buy the largest RV we've ever had, our current 2003 37' Class A Triple E Commander Motorhome. Despite making a few dollars (I think it was about two dollars and forty nine cents) we are very aware of our 2 downsizing mistakes a few years ago and it is playing a big part in our current thoughts. Circumstances were different when we last downsized but still no matter what advantages a smaller RV might have, a smaller living space is a smaller living space and there is simply no way around that no matter which way ya slice the bananas.
IT IS AMAZING HOW FAST OUR LANDSCAPE HAS GREENED UP IN JUST THE PAST COUPLE DAYS
JUST BEFORE POSTING TONIGHT THIS MALE BALTIMORE ORIOLE LANDED ON OUR SUET FEEDER AND I WAS ONLY ABLE TO GET TWO QUICK SHOTS OF HIM BEFORE HE WAS GONE
Another commenter mentioned about traveling in the Spring and Fall instead of Winter and we have been talking about that for awhile as well. In the mid 80's I travelled to Canada's east coast in my Volkswagen van camper in the month of September which in my opinion along with October is the best month of the entire year to go somewhere. By staying on the move I was able to see a fair amount of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton. I never spent any more than two days in one place. This type of traveling may or may not be more to our liking if we decide to do something like that. I think our days of boon-docking in all our old familiar southwest places for a week or more are probably behind us. I believe the bottom line for us now at this age and stage is to change things up, adjust ourselves best we can to change, and try to come up with a different and more interesting way to continue our RV travels. Well it all looks good on paper of course but only time will tell and we'll have to wait to see what happens………….
SOME DAYS AT OUR HOUSE THERE ARE TOY TOYS EVERYWHERE
OH-OH PHEEBS IS ALL WORRIED BECAUSE MOM’S GOING SOMEWHEE IN THE CAR WITHOUT HER
GROANER'S CORNER:(( An important and very well publicized murder trial was soon to begin. In preparation for the trial, the tiresome jury selection process took place, each side hotly contesting and dismissing potential jurors. One prospective juror, Dan O'Keefe, was called for his question session. He was asked, "Property holder?" Dan replied, "Yes, I am, Your Honor." Then he was asked, "Married or single?" Dan responded, "Married for twenty years, Your Honor." Then the judge asked, "Formed or expressed an opinion?" Dan stated with certainty, "Not in twenty years, Your Honor."

One evening, while sitting around the dinner table, a little girl looked up and asked her father, "Daddy, you're the boss, right?" Her father was very pleased by this and replied, "Yes." Then, the little girl continued, "That's because mommy put you in charge, right?"
