RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I have a lot to do this week so we can leave for Michigan after the 4th of July. Sue is do well this morning and had a good day yesterday. The fur gang is well and happy. I am trying to get an update on the memorial bricks from Barry, hope to hear from him soon. Sorry that it is taking so long to get this done. I hope all is well with everyone this morning. WE have had a lot of rain so far this spring and summer. The yard looks great with the lawn getting very thick, It feels like walking on carpet when you walk across the front lawn. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Gee Walter I missed this if it was on the Old Fella thread. Hope Inga is going to be okay.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We spent the weekend in Garden City, Utah having fun with the kids and grandkids, plus 1 great grand daughter. This is where Bear Lake is located. A really good friend let us use his cabin with 6 bdrms and 3 bath rooms. What a lot of fun. No RV's, just our cars. We had 16 of us. That sounds like fun.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

So who is camping and who is at home? With the weather so unpredictable here in the South East makes it kind of hard to plan anything. We are at Lathrop State Park, Walsenburg, Colorado through Tuesday. We like it here because it is the only CO State Park with a golf course! Plus an out of this world view of the Sangre De Cristo mountains. Haven't posted much lately as we have been on a cruise up the Norwegian coast/fjords, and as soon as we got back I had to go on a business trip to Salt Lake City. Doing some winding down now with camping, beer and golf...... :W Glad to hear from you,

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Sure hope Sue is OK. Did she have the monitor on at the time, or was the monitor sent back to DR. Before hand? The monitor has gone back to the doctor. If she had been wearing it this wouldn't have happened. Now that she is up and moving she is doing much better this morning.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Sue went to church yesterday morning for a work day on the grounds. She fell on the driveway and has not been well since. She had low blood sugar without warning. The monitor that she was wearing went back to the doctor until Medicare approves it. The girls and I have discussed buying one regardless of what Medicare does. Anyway she skinned and bruised her shoulder and hurt both of her hands. She was driven home by some church folks and she spent the day on the couch. This morning she says she feels fine, but she is not acting like it. Its like the wind has been knocked out of her sails. The fur gang is well this morning having eaten and now waiting in me to take them out for a walk. I guess I had better go and get ready to face the day. Here's wishing you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is cloudy this morning with rain in the forecast. It rained last night again so it is very humid this morning. The girls have eaten breakfast and are out with Sue for a walk. Izzie has eaten and lying on one of the dog beds getting his first of many naps for the day. We are just two weeks away from our summer trip to Michigan. I will be glad once we get on the road and get started. I don't know why I am so apprehensive about going anywhere anymore, maybe comes with age? Sue just came in complaining about the ants biting her. We have so many fire ants this year, seems like its more than we have ever had before. Allison and Jeff are moving into their new home next week. They have three acres of land with a nice landscaped yard around the house. The fur babies will have a huge back yard to play in with lots of squirrels to watch. I hope all is well with everyone this morning. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. This morning we have some cool weather in store but then by med day it will be close to ninety. We still have rain, so needed. The fur gang is well. Sue just came in and said Suzie chased a black cat. Must be new to the neighborhood as we haven't seen a black cat before. Izzie is till hanging in there. Sue put a smaller litter box in the bathroom for him which makes it much easier for him get into. So who is camping and who is at home? With the weather so unpredictable here in the South East makes it kind of hard to plan anything. The Old Fella Rescue is still going strong. You can go to their FB page and get updates, Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, when we had the house we would put Murray's food up on a counter that she could get to. This way the dogs couldn't eat it and Murray could eat when ever she wanted to. Izzie can't jump up on the counter anymore. That would be the best situation, but because of Izzie's age and disabilities it is not an option.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good Morning FOOFs Monty and Lola had a birthday yesterday. They are 7 years old now. It seems like yesterday when we got them. They have been such a great addition to the family. My wife wanted a small "toy" dog and found Lola. Lola and Monty were the only two in the litter (another girl died). Their mother stopped feeding them when they were a week old. Unfortunately is was too late for the 3rd pup but the owner hand fed Lola and Monty until they could eat on their own. When we went to look at Lola the owner went to their crate and got Monty and handed him to me while she gave Lola to my wife. She tricked me! Monty would get restless when Lola was away from him. Ended up coming home with both of them and so glad we did. It's been almost a year since Monty blew out his knee. He seems to be totally healed now. His surgery was expensive but I would have paid 10 times the amount to fix him. Here is a picture I took of them two years ago at Lake Whippoorwill in Orlando. http://i1073.photobucket.com/albums/w395/MetalGator89/lake4_zpsf5z7eqac.jpg Nice looking pair.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The weather is cool and wet this morning. Sue left Hobo a way into the back bathroom where Izzie's food is kept and she helped herself. She is relentless in her search for food. The only foo proof way to avoid this is to put a shock collar on her with one of those wireless fence mechanism up in the hall way. Other than that we are fine. I hope all is well with everyone and wishing you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. If I get to heaven before you I will leave the door open and a light on for you.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you. Yesterday we go some much needed rain late in the evening. I finally replaced the small battery in the camper with one that should do the job. I think we are good to go now, looking forward to our trip to Michigan. The Old Fella Rescue sent another load of dogs to NES to their forever homes. I just love it when these throw away pets find a new beginning with hope and love. So many saved and still so many to be saved. Our fur gang is well this morning. I am having lunch with my pastor today, looking forward to it. Don't forget about the rally in October. I would like to see us with about fifteen rigs for the event, right now we have six, Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. If I get to heaven before you I will keep the door open and a light on for you.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Our fur babies weren't happy traveling in the motorhome. We had to put up a gate to keep them from under my feet while traveling. Peaches would go back to the bedroom and lay by the bed while Suzie would get on the sofa. Hobo would lay next to the gate just waiting for a chance to up close to Sue so she could protect her. Set up was so easy, just push some buttons and you were done. No trips outside if the weather was bad. We found out that South Carolina is not motorhome friendly with taxes and insurance. It cost us $5,000 a year for it to sit in the yard with taxes and insurance. The Montana cost us $750.00 in taxes and twenty five dollars for a tag. Insurance was five hundred for the year. Then you have to add in taxes and insurance on the F250 I won't go there. I hope all is well with everyone. It is going to be a cooler day here in the Deep South. Yesterday was hot and dry. I mowed the yard yesterday and the heat was terrible. Had to but a new battery for the lawn mower yesterday, Always something. The fur gang is well this morning. I found an article on Old Fella from Good Sam and posted it to FB. He is still making folks aware of older strays. Such a treasure he was wrapped up in a black fur coat. Hos first year with us was such a change for him. He went from being trash to being treasure. He realized what the good life was all about. He loved us with all of his heart and was so aware of what he had found being in our lives. When we would go camping I leave him off leash and he would not go anywhere. He liked the attention he got and was so laid back about everything. At night he would always sleep with us in the bedroom in his kennel crate. That was his sanctuary, his safe place. I am so grateful that the people of this thread talked me into going back for him and giving him a forever home with all of us. Okay I need to get moving so I will close or now wishing everyone a blesse day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. If I get to heaven before you I will leave the door open and a light on for you.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. This morning it just dawned on me the tool kit for the Montana is missing. I don't have the speed handle to lower the spare tire. That's not a problem as I can buy a speed handle and socket, no problem. Now I wonder what else is missing. I really believe this was a repo. The more I look I see things that are just not adding up to a well cared for camper that was only sixteen months old when we bought it. However when I am finished all things will be up to par, its just I have lost confidence in the people I bought it from. Okay enough of that. All is well here at home. The fur babies are doing okay. Sue is well and I enjoyed Father's day yesterday. Went to church and then went to Ruby Tuesdays for lunch. I hope all the Father's on the forum had a great day yesterday. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blesse day. Be sure to give the fur babies hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them and If I get to heaven before you I will hold the door open and leave a light on for you.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone and happy father's day. WE smoked some sausage yesterday and this morning I had grits with smoked sausage in it, Sure was good. Well more of summer weather today with scattered showers in the forecast for this afternoon. I hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying yourself. I don't any thing special is planned for today so I will go to church, come home and just take it easy. Yesterday I washed the F250, the Ford Edge and the 72 Lincoln, busy day for me. Sue is out walking the girls so I had better get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. If I get to heaven before you I will hold the door open and leave a light on for you.

RE: Refreshing cllosed fresh water system

To sanitize 21/4 tsp. bleach in water. Or 1 cup bleach for 60 gallons- 3 hours. Or 2 cups bleach for 60 gallons - 1 hour. Thanks

RE: Refreshing cllosed fresh water system

I have used bleach in all my rvs for years, However my son bought a new trailer in 2011. I can't think of the brand off the top of my head. But in his books and info from dealer I read that if bleach is used in FRESH or BLACK tank it would void warrenty, my son called the dealer and was told that bleach damages o-rings, rubber gaskets ETC. Anyway I still use bleach in my Montana, but I thought I would throw it out there. Mel Thanks for the information. I can see how too much bleach could damage rubber seals. In a deluded solution used sparingly I still think it will be okay,

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is cloudy this morning with a forecast of scattered showers and hot. The Old Fella Rescue is still taking care of Burke County's homeless. The last puppies pictured were pitiful with mange. Margie called for help to raise money for the care of these puppies which looked as if they are only about eight or nine weeks old. Such a bad start in life but their future is now looking better since they are getting the care they need. Any donations will be greatly appreciated. June is here and the summer months have started and some of you are either planning vacations are traveling right now. I wish you the best for the summer in whatever you decide to do, just be careful and remember that at the end of the day its not how quick you got to your destination but how well you did in your travels arriving safely. I need to get moving so II will close for now wishing you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Yesterday was a day of activity for me. I cleaned and flushed the fresh water system in the camper which took most of the afternoon. Today I will haul out the air compressor and check the psi in all the tires. That should get it ready for travel. The fur gang is well as is Sue. She is such a trooper. Never gives up, never gives in and always looking for something to do. Her new doctor has really missed the mark with her care. He changed all of her medications and her blood sugar went out of control. She went back to Novolog and Lantus and everything is back to normal. Her doctor hasn't approved the change as he is out of the office this week. Somehow we are going to get her the Dexcom system. Her insurance hasn't approved her getting it yet. When she was using it on a trial basics we were amazed at how it helped keep Sue aware of her blood sugar level. Burch I hope you get to feeling better soon. The flu this time of year is bad company. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.
