If it was warmer I would probably be outside putting a coat of wax and polish on our Class C. It works best if the metal and fiberglass are slightly on the warm side. If I knew of a spot around here where Pheebs and I could boondock for a night or two I think we would seriously consider doing that. They don't have boondocking areas (BLM land) anywhere around here like they do in America's great Southwest. I sure hope we can get back to our beloved southwest deserts someday. It was our second home for a bunch of winter seasons and I miss it so much. Travel there is still doable for us but our aging body clocks are not only ticking faster now but much louder too. We need to add a little quietly soothing desert dust to the cogs...........
I like these few lines from a book I am currently reading...."Sadly, we humans continue to be controlled by our fears--the boogeyman, demons, goblins, and the devil. If we don't open our minds and release our ancestral dogmas, how will we ever grow and advance beyond control, greed, hatred, anger, and jealousy? The only way humans learn is from study, research, analysis. It's time to release our superstitious beliefs that we hold onto so tenaciously. If humans had never ventured beyond territorial walls believing the Earth was flat or ship eating monsters resided in the oceans, where would we be today?"
I thought this song and video were particularly well done....Angel Flight
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number 293, non-stop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax - OH, MY GOD!" Silence followed, and after a few minutes the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier; but, while I was talking, the flight attendant brought me a cup of coffee and spilled the hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger in Coach shouted out, "That's nothing. He should see the back of mine!!"
After a young couple brought their new baby home, the wife suggested that her husband should try his hand at changing diapers. "I'm busy," he said, "I'll do the next one." The next time came around and she asked again. The husband looked puzzled, "Oh! I didn't mean the next diaper. I meant the next baby...!"
