Got mine back yesterday along with the bill. Insurance covered allof the roof and the wall,$7575.00,and I had $200 ded.Then there was the matter of the furnace that didn't work and the double pane window that was leaking and that was another fortune. Now all I've got to worry about is the backup camera that isn't working now and was when I took it in.They said to have the mobile radio guy come and check it out and it it's something they did,they'll cover the whole thing....Mebbee they'll give me a color one..
Okay,it's time for another Moscow Mule...It's my new favorite mixed drink..Of course anything made with lime and ginger beer is my new favorite..Moscow mule,made with vodka.Dark and Stormy made with bermuda black rum. And then there's the Shandy,which I haven't tried yet,made with an English ale..
Of course,with St Paddy's day coming up,there's this little drink called an Irish Car Bomb,where you drop a shot glass of Irish whiskey into a pint of Guiness and drink it before it all foams up.. Now that's a real trick.
Jon, Dick, glad that you guys have your rigs being fixed, fixed and that you will soon be back on the road again. Jon, my backup camera comes loose every so often on the back of the unit up front. Since we have the same rigs check that. It looks plugged in but is not.
We are now property owners in Arizona, we have bought property out in the Foothills, we have two full hookups with 50amps and a nice building that is going to become a Garacita, a cross between a garage for my jeep in the summer and a casita in the winter months. Nice bath, AC, and soon tile floors and new paint. Four nice palm trees and a nice graveled lot that is surrounded with Mexican brick walls around and big double gate up front.
Room for some of you to come visit if we do not have Fishinghat parked here and even then there is room for short term visitors..

RVing since 1970
Not sure where everyone else has been doing - except for those of you getting your rigs fixed! - but we have had weather in the mid 70's to low 80's and more on the way!! Been out to the pools enjoying the sunshine, playing tennis, learning things in the Silver Craft club and picking our riping oranges and lemons! Haven't even made it over to any spring training games yet!
Bigdog - I want to see you drink that "Dog Plop" or whatever it is in the beer before it foams over! You will have to demonstrate it at the rally!
Tom and I aren't doing much over here because we are a Plague House. I swear, I'm about ready to paint a big red X on the front door to warn people away. Just toss the mail over the fence from a distance and don't come too close. LOL

It's snowing again....I think I'm going to head south now,rather than before the end of the month as we have planned and help Tradewinds put together his shed or whatever the thing is that he bought and can't figger out how to put it together.
Good Grief...I'm really getting tired of the cold and my pocketbook can't take another hit for a fuel oil bill.That money's s'posed to be for diesel for the MH. I also can't figger out why my 150 gallon fill for heating oil was only $.04 cents a gallon less than diesel was on the same day..Something wrong there 'cuz with no road use tax,it outta be about $.30 less a gallon.
Did anybody call us from Seattle ??? we have caller ID and received a call from a pay phone? in Seattle. Our poor Mo-ho hasn't rolled a tire in over a year, it thinks we have abandoned it. I am working on getting a Suzuki Samurai to replace the Tracker that Teri totaled so we have something to tow.
I check in here every once in a while, but not often enough to keep up.

Well hello strangers. It's good to hear from you.
Any chance you'll be able to make the rally this year? Even if you don't have a toad, I'm sure there would be pleny of people to take you where you wanted/needed to go. And if that seems like too much of a bother for you, there is an Enterprise rent-a-car in Yakima. They'll pick you up. We'd sure love to see you guys again.
Oh, and to answer your question, it wasn't me that called. I would have left a message.
Found out it was the Hobo.........talked to him yesterday.....Teri will be in Wisconsin then, her oldest daughter is having a baby and she is going to be there come hell or high water.....We miss you guys, but it seems like life always has strange way of changing your mind and plans. Don't give up on us, we shall return......
