RE: Waiting for the other shoe to drop

Crowe, glad to hear you have made the decision! I seem to remember in one of your old post that you where not crazy about a ranch style. I think you will enjoy a ranch once you are settled in, we are both very happy we do not have any stairs to climb, and our old wore out knees thank us too... Good luck, and have a happy life in your new home!!!

RE: College Baseball Rankings

Campigloo, don't make many road trips anymore, never made it down to BR, maybe one of these days. I have to make a three hour trip to Fayetteville to attend a game live, I have a friend who loves the game also and he does the driving. We went to Omaha in 2015 when Arkansas made it to the CWS and they have a good chance to return this year if they stay healthy. Toomany, I had to get used too the aluminum bat sound, but after a while you can tell the difference in a solid hit or a foul, but like you, I still prefer the wood.....

College Baseball Rankings

I know it is early in the season, most schools start Conference play this weekend, but the SEC has 6 teams in the top ten. I just got hooked on College baseball about three years ago and it has fast become my favorite college sport. A lot of games to be played before I can make my reservations in Omaha this year, keeping my fingers crossed for those Razorbacks.....

RE: Last cup of coffee around the campfire

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and I will be "lurking" around and make sure everyone is playing nice!!! Mountain Jack, my vision in my left eye, (I call it my good eye), has been gradually getting worse the last year. I had cataract and an artificial lens put in a couple of years ago at the VA. It just does not focus like it once did. I am going to beg for some new glasses next month when I am scheduled for my next appt. I have had poor night vision for a couple of years, and now during the day, things just do not focus well at all. I have had progressive vision glasses for some time but even they no longer help. Will see if the Drs. at the VA can provide some relief, pray for me......

Last cup of coffee around the campfire

Made the decision last week to end the camping lifestyle and sell the truck and pass down the trailer to the kids. Several years ago we sold our 24 ft TT because the DW was not able to get in and out of the TT because of her RA. After several years of meds and therapy, she was somewhat better and we purchased a small 19 ft HI-LO for weekend trips. To shorten the story, life happens, DW developed other conditions and in three years I have used the HI-LO twice. I am 68, my right eye has failed me and my left is gradually going also. I barely passed the eye exam last month to renew my license. I am not going to put others, or my family at risk so talked to my DW and she agrees it is time to shut her down. It has been a good ride, been lots of places and have a ton of memories, that is what its all about. God bless everyone, safe travels and be kind to everyone you meet..........

RE: Luckies

Bishop, C-rats we got had pack dates ranging from 1954 to 1956, I don't know when they may have changed package colors for the C-rats but ours were still green.....

RE: Play On Words

As I tell my working friends, we retired folks do not get any holidays, vacations or weekends off, everyday is a working day.... I think "vacations" just become another ADVENTURE!!!!

RE: Luckies

Yes I do, and in 1969 and 1970 they were still in the green package!!!!

Message to Crowe

I guess you are hunkered down this weekend, good luck!!! My granddaughter left yesterday morning to spend a week in Manchester, ME. They arrived in Charlotte, NC for a connecting flight to Boston, then drive to Manchester. All flights northward are canceled, they are now "scheduled" to leave late Monday afternoon, good luck to her group.

RE: The Lumber Yard

Speaking of lumber and lumberyard, I lost my old stud finder and went to buy a new one. Come home and checking it out, the wife was in another room, she hollers at me, asking what I was doing. "Trying out this new stud finder", I replied. "Is it working?" she asked. I just had to reply, "working great, it is pointing straight at me!" You could hear the groans two miles away.......

RE: Boxing Training Kit?

There must be a boxing club or local Golden Gloves chapter in your area, try contacting them to see what a "kit" might include. I would not know what to start with either......

RE: Pads for under Leveling Jacks?

I use them all the time, reduces the distance to crank down the "stabilizer" jacks. I use pieces of 2X8, but if weight and space are a concern, buy the yellow Lynx levelers sold at Walmart, light weight and come in a zip-up case. Never parked anywhere that they were required though.......

RE: California is getting even more expensive

Our state is also talking about increasing our fuel taxes. Seems as though the increased fuel efficiency of vehicles has decreased the sale of motor fuels, the prime source of revenues for highway maintenance. Electric vehicles, using the same roadways, will buy no fuel at all, what then.......

He-Man Laundry Tip #9

When washing your overalls, make sure to snap the straps on the bib buttons. If not attached to the bib, they will twist up in a tangled mess. Don't ask me how I know........

RE: RV Salvage

I have been past their yard many times while visiting the Carthage area and always wanted to stop and tour the place. I used to dream about finding a project there and rebuilding it, but age and arthritis have caught up with me.

RE: Something just didn't look right...

I checked all around the framing and it was nice and dry, no sign of rot or mold. It has sit mostly covered with a tarp for almost a year, I think that helped a lot. I really should have noticed it earlier, looking at it every day, it finally registered with my brain.... I tell the grandkids I only have 3 brain cells left it takes me a while to catch on sometimes.....

Something just didn't look right...

We have had the little Hi-Lo about a year now, just used it once last fall and covered it up until about a month ago. It has sit beside the carport for a couple of weeks, and every time I looked at the side of the trailer, something looked out of place. Finally, Sunday afternoon my SNL and I were checking things over and it dawned on me that the metal vent plate for the rear of the fridge was installed upside down. That allowed rain to run down the side of the trailer and into the vent fins and behind the fiberglass siding. I pulled it off today, cleaned off the old putty and installed it with the fins down. When I took the panel off, it had stock stickers on it indicating it was bought from Camping World. The trailer was traded in to a Camping World dealership and I am guessing they replaced the original vent. It looks more right now......

RE: Had a good laugh this weekend

Crowe, she may be up in your area come Spring Break,2018. Not sure where exactly right now, all she knows is the Maine/New Hampshire area doing service work with her College.

Had a good laugh this weekend

Our Freshman in college granddaughter was home this weekend and was all excited about college life. She stays in a Dorm with three other girl "suite-mates". She said none of the girls wanted to clean the bathroom so she took the job. They have a Dorm inspection every week, so Grandma bought her one of those, "as seen on TV" rechargeable scrubbers with three different heads. She was beaming when she announced that the Dorm Inspector told her they had the cleanest shower in the whole Dorm!!! She couldn't have been prouder if she had made the Dean's List....
