RE: Not a good trip

It is so hard to say goodbye to a beloved pet. Over the past few years we have said goodbye to seven of our rescues, most of which were taken in when they were in their golden years. Mama, a German Shepherd mix and her baby Hobo were especially hard as they were such great companions. Thank you for taking in the homeless and giving them a forever home. The rewards are greater than the sadness of their passing as you hold on to the memories and those days, months and hours they gave you unconditional love.

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

Good morning everyone. No rain yesterday but a nice sun shiny day. The fur gang is well and happy going out the door with Sue for their morning walk. I had a weird dream last night, hope there is nothing to it. Well I am looking forward to traveling in a few weeks. I have a doctors appointment coming up before we go and then we will be free to travel. I also called my doctor about the pain on my lower abdomen and will go see him this Thursday. The strange thing is when I called and talked with the nurse about it, the pain went away completely. Strange how this comes and goes. We had a young climber from Clemson College die from a fall in the mountains. This is the second one this year. Sad to see someone so young die in an accident like that. Our grandson Sgt. Joshua McMillan was at the wedding this weekend. Such a handsome young man. We are proud of his accomplishments he has made in the army. He is still working on being a doctor as he completes his training. In our family we will have a doctor, a pharmacist, and a nurse, all we need now is a lawyer as we already have a preacher. If we can't heal you through medicine I can bury you and then have a lawyer settle your estate. 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}

Good morning everyone. Saturday the grandson married his childhood sweat heart in a beautiful ceremony. It was outside and the rain came just before the ceremony and then stopped long enough for us to get the job done before it poured down again. I am so proud to be able to perform such an important part of their lives as to officiate the wedding for my grandchild. This is number two I have married and now waiting on the granddaughter's wedding. She says she won't be ready for at least a couple of years as she has to finish college and figure where she is going with her education. Kyle is very agreeable in her decision and says when the time is right he will pop the question. The fur gang is well this morning. Dixie is begging Sue to take her for a walk. She really looks forward to the morning walk and gets excited when the time draws near. Suzie, well Suzie can take it or leave it, it really doesn't matter to her one way or the other. Sue is such a great person and so giving to others. We went to visit some of our church people last week that were either sick, old or just lonely. We have a pastor in our church that came from the Philippines. His daughter married a man from Greenville, South Carolina and he attends our cur church along with the family he brought with him. One of his people is in the hospital with a rare disease that has caused her to be in ICCU for a month. She is on a ventilator and has tubes hanging all over her. She is now conscious, but cannot speak. She uses hand signs to communicate. We went to visit her and she asked for our prayers by cupping her hands together and placing them under her chin. Right now she wants to get well and be back with her family so If you will please pray for Maria Garcia and her family. 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 fro me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. Today is going to be a big day for our family. Our youngest grandson is getting married to his childhood sweat heart. They have been dating since they were thirteen years old. They have gone through high school and college together and now are beginning their journey through life together. What an honor I have to preform the ceremony for them joining them as husband and wife. Very few experiences in life have such importance as we watch another chapter unfold for our family. God is good and we are blessed. We are doing well this morning after a good nights sleep. The fur gang is well waiting on their morning walk. It is sixty-seven degrees outside, cloudy with rain during the night. Sue is well and so excited about todays events. God has given her length of days and for a type one diabetic for over forty years she is in good health. I don't deserve what I have today but by the grace of God I have more than I deserve. 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.

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

Good morning everyone. Walter how is Inga doing? I was surprised to read of her illness. Hope she is doing better. We had rain again last night, boy is the grass jumping. The fur gang is well and happy. Sue is doing well and I am having some issues with my colon. We have the wedding coming up tomorrow and we have a trip planned for June, just hope I can postpone any kind of medical exam until all of this is over. Sue wants mulch for the yard and I have been trying to put it off until the ground isn't so soft so we can pull the trailer with the truck to spread the mulch without bogging down or making deep ruts in the yard. Telling Sue no is like arguing with Mother Nature. I hope all is well with everyone and I wish you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Keep the cameras rolling and pots some pictures of the fur babies on the thread.

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

Good morning everyone. I hope all is well with everyone. We had a nice day yesterday with cool temps and rain. It rained last night and its sixty-eight degrees outside right now. Everything is pretty and green. Now that the lawn mower is fixed I can enjoy seeing the grass grow knowing I have the ability to cut it any time I want. The age of cameras is upon us. They are every where, No animal is safe at home anymore without being watched by the big eye and know who done it. On the other hand it helps keep them safe when you know what is going on. Dixie and Suzie are fine. They are out for a walk with Sue right now. They love it when its time for their walk. Suzie is always looking for something to chase and we have an abundance of small rabbits and the squirrels are moving in. For the first time since we have been here we have squirrels in the yard. I first noticed one a few months ago and now we have several. I guess when they find the bird feeder I will have to fix the feeders like I did in Waynesboro, I took a 4X4 post, took a large plastic flower pot, turn it upside done, fastened it to the post and them put the bird feeder on top of that. No squirrel ever made it to the feeder. 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.

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

Good morning everyone. It is raining this morning and a cool sixty-eight degrees. Now that the lawn mower is repaired its going to rain the rest of the week so I can give it a good wok out by the weekend. The tale of the lawn mower turned out to be like Lemony Snicket's tale of unfortunate events. As it turn out it was several things all coming together to make the perfect storm. However they were all simple to repair it just took a while to figure it out. First the ignition switch was destroyed by what ever was set on top of it which left the switch in a position as if it were turned on. Over time this drained the battery. Meanwhile my jumper battery pack was bad and would indicate it was fully charged ready to go when actually it was dead. After I put the ignition switch in the mower still won't start, putting the battery jumper to it would not even turn the hour meter on so that meant there must have been an open circuit somewhere in the electrical system. I checked all the safety switches which there are five of them and they were all good. The battery cables were all good so that carried me back at the battery. That is when I discovered my jumper was bad and the battery on the lawn mower was actually dead. I got the jumper pack repaired and put the cable from that to the battery on the mower and it started. and I was able to finish cutting the lawn. Put the lawn mower battery on charge last night and now all is well. Now you know more than you ever wanted to know about the lawn mower tale. Sue is walking out the door with Suzie and Dixie. Neither rain nor snow. neither cold or heat, neither light or darkness will keep Sue from walking the girls in the mornings. 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.

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

Good morning everyone. Things have changed in the way we can monitor our fur babies with cameras. The new technology is awesome. So glad this wasn't available when I was a kid. Well the ignition switch didn't fix the lawn mower. So back to square one. I by passed the safety switch on the seat so that isn't the problem. I guess I need to check the battery cables again just to make sure one isn't cut or loose. The fur gang is well this morning as is the rest of us. I am still bothered with tenderness and pain in my lower abdomen, but not as bad this morning. I have cut out everything that could be causing this so its wait and see what happens next. The wedding is this weekend so once that is done and I go see the doctor in June we will be free to travel. We are still planning on going to Georgetown, Kentucky for a few days to visit the Ark. Dan and Patty are planning on joining us there so we will get to see their camper. Okay I all is well with everyone and I wish 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. Mother's day is past and I hope all is well with everyone. We are fine here at Camp Dixie, just a little wilted from the heat, but not complaining. no mot at all. This week will be busy with the upcoming wedding. I had to remind the kids to get the license, nothing like waiting to the last minute to get the most important document for the event. The fur gang is well and waiting for a walk. Its cool right now at 66 degrees, but soon it will be another hot day with temps in the lower 90's. The part for the lawn mower should be in today so I can get it running and mow the lawn. Dixie likes to watch me from the front windows as I cut the grass in the front yard. I would let her ride with me on the mower, but I am afraid that would be a set up for disaster. 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.

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

Good morning everyone and a Happy Mother's Day to all who are mothers. Yesterday it was in the 90's again and today will be a repeat of yesterday. This morning we are going to church and then I am taking Sue out for lunch. We will be riding in the 1972 Lincoln as this is a special day and it should be driven in all of its glory. The old car still draws attention whenever its out and the story about how the car came back to me after forty two years is still amazing. The fur gang is well this morning. Dixie is whining at the bathroom door for Sue to come out and take them for a walk. I think it is the best part of Sue's day when she lets Dixie in from being outside and she runs to the bedroom and jumps up in the bed to root me out from under the covers. Susie is doing well and seems to be happy. She has been sleeping in the living room on the couch but last night she decided to sleep in her kennel after having a good day with me and getting lots of attention. Allison and Holly came over yesterday to bring Sue some flowers and a Mother's Day card. Some how the conversation got around to when are you going to get another cat? That is when I spoke up and told them we will wait for a cat to find us as that is the way its been for the dogs and for Izzie, they all have come to us as being homeless. Levi, if you remember brought Izzie to us when he found him in the bushes seventeen years ago. All of our dogs were brought to us after being homeless. Old Fella was a different story in that he found us while we were at a campground and I had to go back to get him. However I went back to get him so I could get him well and then find a forever home for him with someone else. Well we all know how that turned out don't we? 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. Once again Happy Mother's Day

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

Good morning everyone. Yesterday I went out to start the lawn mower and for the first time in eight years it failed to crank. It looked as if something fell on the ignition switch and damaged it. The key was bent down sideways and when I turned it nothing happened. The battery is good so I guess something fell on it when Sue was moving her boxes around looking for some items she had in stock that she had a buyer for. Anyway she told me that is most likely what happened. So I called a friend who does yard work and asked him to come over and take care of the lawn until I can repair it. It was hot yesterday, in the nineties for the first time this year. Today will be a repeat with a high of ninety-three. We went from winter to summer and skipped spring. The house next door is coming along. Yesterday they finished putting the roof on. All the walls are up and now for the plumbing and electrical work to be done and then the dry wall. Steve says he and his wife want to buy a camper and start enjoying traveling. He has never owned a camper so he is looking for me to help guide him in his new adventure. Dixie is acting strange toward new people she comes in contact with. She met one of our neighbors while out on a walk and Dixie didn't like her at all. She was walking with a long cane stick and that may have been the problem thinking she was a threat to Sue, anyway it was all Sue could do to hold Dixie back from attacking her. This is totally unlike the sweet loveable little girl we have come to grow very fond of. Suzie is doing well, I guess. Her paws are still cool to the touch. I wonder if there is a circulation problem in her legs and paws? I noticed she wants to be on the couch snuggled in with her back to the cushion and curled up with her paws under her as much as possible. She loves to go for walks and she is active when she wants to play, but something is just off with her. Maybe she is just getting old like the rest of us. I stayed cold this winter, with my feet and legs just frozen. Sue likes to keep the house at seventy-one degrees and I can't stand that. As long as I had fire wood for the fireplace I stayed warm, but when we ran out in February and winter held on into April the house was cold. Sometimes I went out to the camper and turned on the heat just to get warm. Now it seems we are going to have summer, Great! let the sun shine keep us warm while we dream of open roads waiting for adventure. Glad to see folks posting pictures of their fur babies on the thread. Its makes it much nicer to see all of our friends with their families and being able to put faces to names. 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.

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

https://i.imgur.com/97gi78cl.jpg Good morning everyone. Sue says there is nothing like a good book. being outdoors relaxing in a good chair to make your day. We really had a good trip. The drive is easy and its not that far to travel for a few days. The worse part of the trip is the twenty mile stretch from our house to Interstate 26. Its stop and go, stop and go and hope just maybe you can catch the lights in a sequence where you can catch them all green. But it is four lane all the way going and coming. Looking forward to Georgetown, Kentucky in June, then home for a few weeks before venturing out again. I have been trying to figure a way to keep the wipe seals from crinkling up in the slide when it comes in and out. I watched a video on a way to use the plastic corner things you use in dry wall installation, attach them to the sides of the slide out with 3m double sided adhesive. This will pull out the seal or push in the seal when the slide moves in and out, therefore not allowing it to crinkle up. Just might try it. Okay the girls are fine and out for a walk. It rained last night so the ground is wet, just right for mowing the lawn today. Have a blessed day, Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. OH, by the way, one week away from the wedding of my youngest grandson. This is the second wedding I have done for my grandchildren.

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

. We got home yesterday and discovered Sue has lost her glucose monitor. Must have lost it at a rest area we stopped at for lunch. She walked the dogs while I got the camper ready for us to go inside and eat. At best it is a set up to get lost. It clips to your belt or the waistband of your pants. It easily comes off and this is not the first time she has lost it, but in the past it was around the house and it turned up later. Found the monitor on the floor of the camper in front of the refrigerator. Now since we looked the camper over several times and it was not there I am inclined to believe God found it at the rest area in North Carolina, sent it by special angel and placed it in the camper just to make us think we had overlooked it the many times we searched for it. Ain't God great.

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

Good morning everyone. Marsden I tired the cleaning the roof deal years ago, never again. We got home yesterday and discovered Sue has lost her glucose monitor. Must have lost it at a rest area we stopped at for lunch. She walked the dogs while I got the camper ready for us to go inside and eat. At best it is a set up to get lost. It clips to your belt or the waistband of your pants. It easily comes off and this is not the first time she has lost it, but in the past it was around the house and it turned up later. We got the camper unloaded and parked on its pad, today I will empty the holding tanks and work on repairing the wipe seal that has torn again. This is the seal that wipes the slide-out edge as it comes in and also protect the interior of the slide from run off water during a rain. I have come up with a way to know how good or bad my driving is. I have Sue grade me on a scale of one to ten one being the worst, ten being the best, on how well I have done by the end of the day. This way it keeps me aware of my driving habits and actually reminds me that at the end of the day I will receive a grade on my driving skills So before I speed up or try to pass slower traffic, change lanes I think is the really necessary? Yesterday I got a nine for our trip home. I told her the first time I receive a grade of five I quit driving. Try it and see if you benefit from this little bit of being monitored by someone you love and trust. It will keep your driving habits a little more honest in your own assessment. However, if you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. 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. By the way, post more of your favorite pictures of your fur babies.
