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

Good morning everyone. Kelly People from all over the United States rallied around Old Fella and gave him a life time of adventures all bunched up into three and one half years. He traveled over many states making appearances at Old Fella Rallies and even spearheaded an animal rescue named in his honor in Burke County Georgia which is still very much alive. As to date over two thousand animals have been rescued and given forever homes all across the United States. His story is one out of a fairy tale come true. What a wonderful life he had in his golden years. Well I am a year older this morning. What a great life God has given me with so many wonderful friends all across the United States. I am looking forward to the rally in September. What a beautiful part of the country. The Smoky Mountains are a wonderland of sights and sounds particular to only that part of the country. Here is wishing everyone a blessed day and may all of your dreams come true and give a hug to your family.

Richard, Is the "Handyman" going to clean the outside while you (Sue) cleans the inside? :B:B:B:B:B Glad you had a great time. I will become the handy man for this project. After the trip I have run out of money:o

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

Good morning everyone. What a nice day yesterday. It is good to be home and out of the wet. The last five days of our trip we had rain. Everything got dirty and the dogs stayed wet and it was hard to get them outside long enough to take care of business. We planned to stop at Waynesboro but when we came through it was raining so we just kept going until we got home. Suzie was so funny when she got home. She went into our bedroom and jump on the bed and she jumped and rolled and rubbed herself all over the bed so glad to be home. After her nap she went through the house making sure everything was just like she left it. WE did have a good time at Disney and when we went to the Whippoorwill KOA we did nothing for three days but catch up on our rest. This was a beautiful campground and very well kept. The people were friendly and we would go back there again. Today I have to put the camper on the pad in the back and flush all the holding tanks. Then I need to cut grass and take care of other things around the house. I will have to wash the camper and clean it on the inside to get rid of the Florida sand and dirt. Also there is the issue with the warning on the truck concerning water in the fuel. After the wire was reconnected to the sensor the computer wasn't reset. So that will have to be taken care of. Okay I need to get moving. Have a blessed day and enjoy your family.

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

We are home! Drove straight from Waycross, Ga. It rained on us all the way but we had a good trip home. When we left Waycross everything was soaking wet from two days of steady rain. The rain followed us up from Florida as if that cartoon character what's his name was with us with the black cloud hanging over his head. The girls were ready to get out of the truck when we got home. Right now they are all in their beds sound asleep. Gonna fix some slaw dogs for supper, anybody want one??:B?

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

Bad weather and illness has hampered our get together. Sue and I was able to meet with Jimmy's family but R.M. got sick last night and went to the hospital in Florida. The weather here is bad, very bad. The rain is coming down so hard it is not safe to drive. We did have lunch with Jimmy, Cindy, Betty Sue and Jamie and it was great to see Betty Sue. She looks the best I have seen her in years. So glad to see her doing so well. Right now we are under a severe weather watch for flooding and heavy rain. We are safe in the camper just waiting it out.

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

Good morning. It is raining and cool, but not cold. It is supposed to rain all day and then 60% tomorrow. Today we meet with family at Jimmy and Cindy's home for lunch. Some of these relations I haven't seen in twenty-five years. Any way it will be a good reunion and I know I will enjoy seeing them. Betty Sue's husband Brunson died about a year ago so she is going to move into a new home on the property of her son Jimmy. I.T Sweat and Lavern will be here from Montana. Sue and I went to visit them at their home in 2012. R.M and Billie I haven't seen in twenty-five years. They live in Atlanta, Georgia and have family there. I.T., R.M. and Betty Sue were raised by my Grandparents when both of their parents died in 1943. Roy, the father had cancer and Bertha his wife died from TB. They died three days apart. Granny did a good job raising them along with her own children that were still at home. Lets see, there was Barney, Isaac, Folly, Era. My Mother Mattie and Doris and then Roy who left the three children. Grandpa was the preacher that built about twelve churches in Ware County. Sweat Memorial Baptist Church is named after him. Out of all the children and grandchildren I was the only preacher that followed in his footsteps. When I come to Waycross and see all the places from my youth it brings back a flood of memories. This may the last time Sue and I get back for a while so I want to make the best of it. When we leave tomorrow we will go to Waynesboro and visit the Old Fella Memorial and see some old friends. I plan to go by the house in Waynesboro where Sue and I lived for twenty-one years and where Old Fella made his home. Okay I need to go for now, talk with you later. Have a blessed day nd hug the fur babies for me.

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

Have they had enough rain to get the swamp back up to enough water to get the floating tours going? You must be at Laura B. Walker. Lori said the next time we get down that we get together and head toward Magnolia Springs. Can also visit the Old Fella Memorial while in the area and troll the streets of your old stomping grounds. She said as long as not having to go through Atlanta. Could also go and visit your "cousin" :B Yes we are at Laura S Walker State Park. There is a lots and lots of water as they have had an abundance of rain. The lake is as full as I have ever seen it. Yes we could go to Magnolia Springs and roam the streets of Waynesboro and visit the Old Fella Memorial, that would be fun. My cousin's house would be a nice stay for us as well. We would be welcome to visit and stay as long as we like. Asheville is beautiful in the fall of the year. Maybe you could make a layover trip when you come to the Old Fella Rally?

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

We are in Waycross, Georgia at a beautiful state park. The weather here is cool especially for the Deep, Deep South. The temperature is 68* and the low last night was 53*. It is cloudy and rain is in the forecast. We had a problem with the truck when we got a warning there was water in the fuel. The truck went to reduced power causing lots of problems towing the camper. We pulled into a Ford dealership in Daytona and when they went to check it everything was okay so we continued on our way. This morning when we wanted to go into town the warning came up again so I took it into the Ford Dealer here. He found a wire had come loose from a sensor and once reconnected everything was okay. So right now we are sitting in the camper relaxing waiting for tomorrow when we will visit with family. So far it has been a nice trip even with the unexpected events with the truck, it could have been worse. The girls are doing fine enjoying their new campground exploring the sights and smells of strange creatures they haven't seen or smelled before. The alligators are not too active with the cool weather so we haven't seen any so far. These waters are full of them from big to small. We are in the heart of the Okefenokee Swamp where you will find just about anything that crawls, runs of climbs. I have been told come cougars have migrated up from Florida and have made their home here in the swamp, something else to watch out for....

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

I am about ready to hunt down Mother Nature. We have had 3 days of 70's and they are predicting snow for tomorrow. Maybe an inch of heavy wet stuff. This is quite disgusting. Tomorrow temp is 38 for a high. Back in the 60's come Thursday. The weather is so unpredictable this year. I just looked at the weather for Waycross, Georgia for Wednesday through Friday and it Is going to be in the 60's Wednesday and in the 70's Thursday and Friday with lows in the 40's at night. Dan when you hunt down Mother Nature let me know your intentions I may join you. The girls are fine and the weather here is nice with a chance of rain today. We are going to the Holy Land of Orlando today to see what it is about. Tomorrow we leave for Waycross and a visit with family. My second cousin's wife's sister's niece, hope you can follow along with that one who was ten years lost her life last Saturday a week ago when a gun she and her brother were looking at went off killing her instantly. The father was arrested and put in jail for what reason I don't know but it had to do with the improper care of a weapon in the house in the presence of children. Anyway I don't what the outcome of that will be but will find out when we get there. Okay I need to get moving, talk with you later. Peaches, Hobo and Suzie said to tell you to have a blessed day.

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

I could not figure why the black water tank was not flushing out with the water hose attached to force out anything that was in the tank. Finally figure out I had the hose connected to the wrong place. Sue checked the weather for home and Tuesday night it will be 28* and Wednesday night it will be 30*. I got the last laugh on Mother Nature as we are in Florida where it is nice and warm. Dan come on down the weather is fine.

Following the instructions flushing the black water tank is always best.

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

Another beautiful morning. The weather here has been great and the outlook is for more of the same. I really enjoyed the Masters God Tournament. I was pulling for Bubba all the way. He has had some ups and downs but this should put an end to the myths concerning his ability to lay the game. The girls are doing great and enjoying themselves. The KOA is so nice. It was bought out by a Missionary group and the grounds join the Missionary school. They have improved the campground and intend to keep it and to continue to improve it. There is a long walkway that goes from the campground into the Missionary School grounds that is accessible for the folks that are staying at the campground. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Whippoorwill Lake is a large lake that joins the campground and the breeze that blows across it is so refreshing right now. We would definitely stay here again. We have met some nice people here in the campground both those that are camping and those who work here. A family pulled into the campground with a brand new Designer fifth wheel on their first time out with it. What a nice camper. Okay I need to play with the black water tank, wish me well in that it flows out like it is supposed to. I have some doubts that the gate valve is not working as it should of something has stopped it up, oh well we will see. BY the way Suzie, Hobo and Peaches says hello and have a blessed day.

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

Sitting back in the camper with the A/C on watching the Augusta Masters. I had the privilege to play the course three times. The last time was in 1996 when I shot an 86. Not bad for an old duffer. The day is nice here with a strong breeze blowing in from the lake. I fixed the GPS it seems by going on line with it and getting some help. The girls are doing well and enjoying themselves. It is great to be able to just sit back and relax.

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

Oh My!!! The GPS went out on us. How will I ever get home??? Glad we are in an area that I am somewhat familiar with or else there would be some slow walking and sad singing going on. Yesterday the GPS sent us down a dead end road on the way to the campground. That was a bad sign of things to come. This morning it said I quit and I am checking out. So we are left to do it the old fashion way. Sue navigating with a road map and me saying "what did you say?" as we come up on a busy confusing intersection. By the way when we ended up on the dead end road I had to back the camper about a half mile to the highway and then back into traffic while Sue stood in the middle of the road directing traffic.

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

Good morning. It is another beautiful morning here in Florida. Yesterday was a perfect day with the weather. The girls are doing fine, enjoying their days and most exciting for Suzie she was in a land of squirrels at Disney and now she has ducks. The ducks come to the camper begging for food and when you walk to the water they follow waddling from side to side expecting a handout. So far this has been a wonderful trip enjoying every minute. Sue is out with Peaches right now and will come back for Hobo and Suzie. There is a lot of space here to walk your dogs and the grounds are so pretty. The lake is just a jewel with water just a few yards from the campsite. Okay Sue is back with Peaches and is now taking Hobo and Suzie. Our neighbor is from Switzerland traveling in a rented Class C motorhome. He is going back home today so he cleaned out his camper and gave us some Diet coke. He is a mechanical Engineer and has been on an assignment here for the last few months and turned it into a vacation. He has had a great time enjoying the lower part of the United States but he was just taken aback by Louisiana and New Orleans. He had a hard time understand the dialect of the Cajun people. Okay I need to get moving, talk with you later.

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

It didn't take long for the Hunting Island site to be taken. Well we are leaving Disney in a few minutes. I found out I am not as young as I use to be. The girls enjoyed the dog park and the walks in the park. Talk with you later.
