RE: The Lumber Yard

I'm over 40 and was recently at big blue box store for some fence posts. An older gentleman came over and told me to look for posts where you could see at the end that the grain was centered. Posts like this are much less likely to warp or twist over time. Then he helped me load a few into my dolly. I was grateful for the education and help from someone with more experience than me. Thank you for having the grace for accepting help and thank you to the older gentlemen for offering it. Manners and respect-love it.

RE: New Friend wanted

What kind of dog can fill Dakota's boots? None. Don't look for a replacement, look for a new adventure.

RE: Quit Camping???

Ask her why. You can't take a "corrective" path until you know the root cause. At that point you may indeed find yourselves at opposite ends. At that point you can decide what is most important to you.

RE: The Lumber Yard

All I'm saying is the young man had no idea how to prepare for the journey and probably through no fault of his own. Bingo. If a child is not prepared for the journey quite often it is not his fault. Somewhere along the way we as parents, teachers, mentors and leaders are failing subsequent generations. Many criticize, complain, laugh at and make fun of younger people but don't teach. Life gives most of us the opportunity to impart our knowledge but we don't take the time to do it and that's what make US failures. A child can't be blamed for what they don't know if it hasn't been taught to them.

RE: The Lumber Yard

How judgemental we be. It's possible Dad sent him on an errand without giving him the correct/complete information. I guess I just don't understand why so many on here jump at the chance to be critical.

'Tis the Season

Now that Thanksgiving and Christmas are fast approaching please take some time to remember those less fortunate. Sometimes it takes as little as a pair of socks for an elderly person to make them happy. Food pantries are especially vulnerable at this time of year. And don't forget our furry friends as well. I'd also like to take this time to remind everyone that whether someone says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays is not relevant. It's not the words that are important but the sentiment. Life is too short to get your undies in a bunch over something so trivial. Just be happy that someone has taken the time to wish you well.

RE: Boxing Training Kit?

Good luck, nice of you and husband to do this. Thanks. We do it every year. Our town used to do "Clause for a Cause" but the woman who ran it lost all her help and no one has taken their place. My son does it as well but on a smaller scale as his budget is a lot smaller. I get far more joy on Christmas morning knowing a child who wouldn't otherwise have Christmas will have one.

RE: Boxing Training Kit?

For kids that age, pair of boxing gloves, teeth protector and the head cover, shorts for the gym and the boxing boots, then get him a few lessons at a boxing gymnasium with a big ork, no punches bellow the belt and no punches to the face! It's through a charity so I have no idea where he lives or if he even has transportation to get there, but the gloves & teeth protector are what a co-worker who boxes suggested. Head cover may be hard as he won't be able to try it on. There are also speed bag kits that include the bag, mount, gloves, etc. Problem with them might be the mounting part. We have seen kits like this and we are somewhat leaning towards this. However, they aren't cheap and he's also asked for necessities like a winter coat, clothes, etc. This particular charity doesn't cap how much you spend-it only says that if you have siblings you buy equal amounts. Friday night "date night" is going to be spent at places like Modells and Dick's Sporting Goods and seeing what they've got. There must be a boxing club The owner of the gym we go to also owns a boxing club. I'm going to try and remember to call tomorrow. Unfortunately our time constraints are compounded by Thanksgiving and hubby traveling the week the items are due (charity is through his work) so we have our work cut out for us.

RE: Interesting phenomenon with auto shut-off engine

The dogs probably associate the engine turning off with you getting out of the vehicle and hopefully they also get out! That's what we think too. It's just funny how "trained" they are.

Interesting phenomenon with auto shut-off engine

Our new F150 has the auto-shut off engine when idling for more than a few seconds. We discovered it has an interesting effect on our dogs. Our dogs normally settle right in and don't fuss until we get to our destination. The first time they rode in the new truck they kept fussing-every time we stopped. We think now it's not the motion of the truck that keeps them quite but the sound/feel of the engine noise/vibration. Has anyone else experienced this? Now we just shut off the auto feature so they stay quiet.

RE: How do you guys look for RV Parks?

I might add that I throw out the high and the low review on RVParkReviews and figure a rough average on what's left. I figure the high review is the owner and the low is the closest competitor. X2. I look at it as some people will love something no matter what and some will hate it no matter what. Net search, RVPark Reviews, TripAdvisor and this forum are what I used to use (not camping at this point in life). As stated prior you must analyze the negatives and decide if they are truly an issue for you. No golf carts or no fires were never an issue-no pool usually was. That also relates to things such as noise levels, accessibility to highways, what type of hook-up, etc.

Boxing Training Kit?

Well, we received are "adopted" kids for Christmas through Operation Santa from hubby's company. One is a 10 month old girl-easy. The other is a 16 year old boy who wants a boxing training kit (among a few other things). Does anyone have any idea what that entails? I did some net searching but it runs the gamut from just gloves and mitts to bags on stands, etc. I'm loving the challenge but could use some guidance. Thanks!

RE: Canadian RVing for newbies

before heading south through New England. We speak Yankee here but if you ask we'll speak normal. :B Seriously the only place I've had an issue in Canada with the locals speaking French and not English was Quebec, but that was many moons ago. In the Maritimes English is not a problem at all. Twin Shores campground on PEI has 50 amp-we stayed there a number of years ago and really enjoyed it. While you are on PEI go to the College of Piping and Music in Summerside and enjoy a celidgh if they are having one.

RE: Thank you

X4. Made sure I thanked the 5 air force gents that were in one of our favorite sandwich shops last Sunday.

RE: Rude and combative tow truck driveer

Agree with letting the insurance company know plus use word of mouth.

RE: Collision damage...repair questions

I wouldn't rely on anyone's "guesstimate". Contact your insurance company if you haven't. You can get their evaluation then decide if you are going to file a claim or not. From the pics it doesn't look too bad but you don't know what's underneath or if there's hidden or unseen damage. Definitely file a police report and find out of the other driver was cited.

RE: Contacting owner of lost wallet. What is best way.

Sounds like OP want's a pat on the back. You can't be serious. It's truly sad that in the wake all that's happening in this world some of you have to be mean. Just mean. Makes me wonder what's so wrong in your life you can't find a few words of encouragement for someone else.
