RE: Nature owl question

We listened to a Ranger talk on owls. She said they hatch 1 chick at a time so when you see cartoon pictures of young owls of graduated sizes on a tree branch, that is how it is. Now, are you ready for this: when the male is unsuccessful in hunting for food to feed the family, he takes the smallest and feeds it to the older ones. The Ranger also said small dog or cat collars have been found in owl nests. Thanks for sharing your incredible photo.

RE: Before pulling out...

I keep a typed checklist in a plastic sleeve to protect it. We just review it together before moving and we're good to go. Whatever works for you.

RE: Dishes for the motorhome

Our corelle is about 25 years old. Use it daily. Of course it's been dropped, but never broken anything.

RE: Going back to cash

I get a check on the 16th of the month and cash it. Groceries, haircut, household incidentals are all paid with cash. When the cash runs low, I spend less until the next check comes, so in my case, I spend less when I use cash. no you spend less because you are broke. its a good thing you don't have a cc at least you can't go past 0 i have made thousands on reward cards. never paid a dime in interest. Not broke, just pretend I'm broke for my own good. I actually have 5 months of uncashed checks because I make the monthly cash stretch. Everyone has their own method, I guess.

RE: Saving $5.00 Bills

We had a lady come in and do light housekeeping but she retired, so I do it myself and I continue to write her a "fake check". I color my own hair, so I write a "fake check" for it. We do our own lawn work, so I write a "fake check". I use green ink for them. I keep a running balance of these "fake checks" on the left hand of the check book in green ink. When I balance the checkbook (yes, I still do this monthly) the bank and our balance is off exactly the amount of "fake checks". If we do these household chores ourselves to save money, then we actually need to save the money. It counts up and it's "found money" at our house.

RE: Tuna Burgers...

We used to mix tuna with chopped celery, onion, shredded cheese. Spread on hamburger bun, wrap in foil and heat up in oven. Instead of shredded cheese, a slice of cheese can be used.

RE: Corn Flake Chicken Recipes

This was a easy favorite of our kids when they were at home: 2 shallow bowls needed. Crushed up saltine crackers in one and place 1/2 cup melted butter in the other. Dip chicken pieces in butter then roll in cracker crumbs. Place on cookie sheet with sides. If there's any butter left, it can be poured over the pieces. Bake 325 until done or about an hour. I've gotten to be a big fan of parchment paper since then, so if I made it today, I'd line the pan with it first. BTW, they named it "Crispy Chicken". Corn flakes could be easily used instead of crackers.

RE: Halloween

I've seen 6 teen girls dressed as a Coke 6 pack. Of course, they were identical purchased costumes. The next year same 6 girls wore all black and added large white circles so they looked like dominoes.

RE: egg ring?

Mine's a little bigger than a tuna can and I use a snap clothes pin to pick it up. Less bulky than a potholder.

RE: Reforming Pans

My Wearever saucepan came from a garage sale (50 cents) It was out of shape, probably from dropping, and the lid wouldn't fit. DH pounded it back with a block of wood and a hammer. It gets used almost every day.

Camper burgularized in driveway !!

On local news tonight: family was in process of packing up their 5th wheel for a vacation and it was parked in their driveway. (sound familiar?) Next morning they noticed camper door wide open. Owners neglected to lock it up (they admit it was their bad!) and about $1200 worth of valuables were taken. They knew their neighbor had a security camera so they checked it and it revealed 6 young folks came with backpacks and flashlights, in and out in about 10 minutes, checked the cars across the street, then jumped in a get-away car and left. The tape is too fuzzy to correctly identify anyone. Nice quiet neighborhood too. Just a heads up, people !

RE: Pics of Interior Modifications on A frames ?

We sold our Chalet so I have no pictures but DH is a handy guy to have around. Previously, cooking pans had to be stored in the one and only compartment located towards the front, between the dinette seats. It opened at the top and it was a nightmare bending down and fishing through it to find what I needed. IT HAD TO GO ! We removed the dinette seats and stored them away. They were replaced with newly made smaller seats that accommodated 1 person on each side (not 2 per). One side had a porta potty under the cushion for midnight accommodations. Then we made and installed a cabinet made from oak plywood which reached from side to side with 2 sliding doors. We decided sliders were better than doors on hinges that opened into the camper. Now we have storage for groceries, dishes AND cooking pans. Hooray ! Cabinet was maybe 10 or 12 inches deep, stained and varnished to match the interior wood, so we gained a new surface on top too. Cabinet covered an outlet but DH wired an outlet from it to the new cabinet top so we didn't lose the outlet. Great for recharging station or a place to put a crockpot. We didn't carry a table, we each use a lap tray if we ate inside and our beverages can sit on coasters on top of the new cabinet. At the floor level, he used more oak plywood to make what I would call a cubby hole with no door. There was a 3" lip up from the floor and the same down from the top that ran from side to side. This held water jugs, etc. securely while we traveled. We never use the sink so we took a piece of scrap countertop and added 4 legs so it just cleared the faucet. It's large enough to cover the whole area to the left of the stove and gave me wonderful counter space. It's removed for travel. Then he made 2 metal brackets that hooked into the frame above the cooking area and we lay a piece of wire shelving on the brackets and 3 plastic dishpans fit up there. Dirty dishes go in one and I only wash dishes once a day. Again, brackets, shelf and dishpans are moved down for travel. We stored the sofa cushions away and added a good, futon mattress. Bed stayed made up all the time - only way to go ! I was going to shop for plastic totes for clothes and towel storage under the bed but I discovered 4 cardboard apple boxes fit perfectly and served the purpose nicely at no cost. They slide out just like a drawer. We traded camper in on something bigger and the dealership was amazed at our projects. We took some unforgettable trips and I miss that little camper !

RE: Getting ready for a trip.

Our trailer is permanently stocked with most things like camping clothes, bedding, cookware. For other things, I use a wire bound dollar store notebook and refer to the list I created for the medications/perishables that need to be moved to the trailer. This valuable little book also includes a checklist to follow when we break camp. There's a record of repairs too. Lists, lists, lists - but it makes life so much easier ! We have 3 baskets with handles and they are used to transport the "stuff". Makes easy work out of it for us.
