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

I read this today: A man said, " Give me a light that I may go out into the darkness and not be afraid. A wise old man replied, "Go out into the darkness and take the hand of God. let Him be your light and you will not be afraid."

RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

I started having tire problems when the manufactories moved their plants to China. I also found out RV companies would take a 7,000 pound axle and derate it on paper to 6,000 pounds so they could put a lesser grade tire on their campers. Like you I went through the tire problem until I was afraid to venture out any distance from home. The last draw was when we sat at a campground in Virginia with four bad tires on a year old Montana 5th wheel. I bought tires just to get home and started doing my homework. In June of 2012 I bought four Goodyear G614 tires and wheels that would accommodate the 110 PSI and never looked back. We have traveled thousands of miles since then without a tire failure. The G614 will be the last tire you will buy for your camper.

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

Richard, Thought I would pass on a tidbit of info. Sarah has developed a new habit. In the last few weeks she is wagging the tail more than I have seen since we got her. This is a good thing. She still seems quite happy. We are going to try to get the fatty tumors taken off prior to September. Need to get both dogs their shots and while Sarah is knocked out going to have them clean her teeth. :B:B:B Sarah is such a sweet girl and I am glad she has a family that loves her and takes such great care of her. She had a rocky start in life and her life could have ended very early except for some caring folks that found her on the road and got help for her. She has a great family now where all of her needs are met. Thank you Dan and Lori for taking such great care of her. After weeks of anxiety and worry I can now take a deep breath and get on with our plans for the rest of the year. There is still that cloud overhead with the PSA being 8.7, however Doc says it is only an indicator not an absolute and so far there doesn't appear to be any cancer. I am so glad that have that behind me for now. Suzie is such a hoot! This morning she was up at the crack of dawn with her Hedgehog toy running through the bedroom teasing Peaches and getting her excited. Hobo tried to stay out of the way hiding in her crate with her head buried in her bedding trying to get that last minute shut eye. Sue's new menu for Suzie has met with her approval in a big way. Suzie actually is excited about her food now and watches me put it all together with much anticipation. She will walk on her hind legs when I start to put her bowl down trying to get at it before it touches the floor. Izzie is somewhere still asleep. I haven't seen him at all this morning but he will be up at it after a while. He has become so laid back in his old age. He doesn't care which way the water flows as long as it doesn't flow over him. The work on the 72 Lincoln is coming along and will soon be complete. The fuel system needed a good cleaning along with the carburetor. The engine is getting a tune up with new points, plugs, condenser and fuel filters and oil change. Sue and I will take a day trip into the mountains with it as soon as its ready. Okay I need to get moving. I hope everyone has a blessed day, talk with you later.

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

I went to the doctor today. I won!!:B The PSA was back to where it was when all of this started. So no biopsy and let's get on with life. Where's the camper and the keys to the truck???

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

Rise and shine! it's time to get moving and begin a beautiful day:B Peaches has started racing back and forth in the bedroom the minute the sun comes up. So one of us has to let her out and it is hard to go back to bed after that. Maybe she should be placed in a closet at night with all sources of light shut our?

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

Good morning everyone. It is a great day so far. My blood pressure this morning was 129/70/69 with the blood sugar at 80. I slept very good and feel rested this morning. We had a great day at the lake yesterday with church family. There was lots of food, boast rides, singing, horse shoe game and lots more. The girls are fine after eating breakfast. Izzie is still asleep on the dog bed in front of the fireplace. I am about to get ready to face the day with a shower, shave and getting dressed for church. I hope everyone has a blessed day and enjoys family and friends and of course the fur babies.

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

Good morning. The fog is very thick this morning with the high humidity. The girls are fine with full tummies and a sleepy look in their eyes. We have a church picnic today at Hartwell lake so there will be plenty of food and fun today. It has been quiet here lately. I guess everyone is busy with summer chores. I had hoped to be able to drive the 72 Lincoln today. but it is not to be. When I get it back I hope all the issues with the fuel system have been repaired. I guess sitting around for so long didn't do any favors for it. I have found a company that fully restores old cars, but they are in Asheville, North Carolina where my cousin has his home:B. It is good to know they are there even if it is far away. I start with the doctors next week while they try and decide what to do with me. I am not looking forward to this and will have a guarded attitude about the whole thing. I hope everyone has a blessed day and gets a chance to enjoy family and friends. Give the fur babies a hug and try to stay out of trouble. Talk with you later.

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

Dan I am glad you are having a good time. You are in beautiful country. The furniture we bought there has proven to be top quality as well as nice looking. Suzie really loves her food Sue prepared for her. Its is the first time I have seen her get excited about eating. I moved the Lincoln yesterday to another repair garage. In doing so I have finally figured out what is wrong with the car. The needle valve and seat has trash in it so the carburetor will have to be cleaned. The engine will idle all day long but when you rev up the engine it runs out of gas and shuts down. This should be an easy repair, so hopefully I should have it back next week. The Ford dealership where I initially took the car has only one mechanic that is knowledgeable about older cars. He was swamped with work and he had a job that really turned sour on him and put him way behind in his work. So I decided to move the car to someone my son knows whose specialty is with the older cars and is able to work on the car much sooner. Okay not back to the topic, Old Fella. Boy Snowbird used to watch the thread to make sure we stayed on topic. He would gently bring to my attention we were straying from topic and suggest I bring it back in line. I still have some of his emails and comments he made during his time on the thread. Gary have you ant news on the repairs for your motorhome? I hope all is well with everyone and you have a blessed day. I am going to get ready to face the day. Talk with you later.

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

I am off to the doctors for blood work. The girls are fine waiting on Sue to take them for a walk. We had an experience at church last night, people begging for money to get to Louisiana. Even if it was professional beggars taking advantage of church people or not they got help but also go a real lesson in what Jesus Christ is all about.

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

Good morning. What a beautiful day. The sun is shinning bright with a few clouds in the sky, maybe I can get the grass cut today if it dries out. The girls are fine, resting after a hearty breakfast and waiting for the "Go" word. Izzie is sleeping in my chair and I don't think a train passing through the house would wake him. I hope all is well with everyone and you are making plans to attend the Old Fella in September.

RE: Old Fella Rally Sept.17-21 2014 Great Smoky Mountains

I was around when Old Fella first joined our group, but have been gone for a few years. I live about two hours away, and might try to make it to the rally. I think it would be great fun. That's great! Hope to see you in September. Be sure and register ASAP September is just around the corner.

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

Good morning everyone. Suzie got a special treat this morning. Sue spent yesterday making Suzie some special food. It has rice, liver, chicken, beans carrots, and green beans in it. She loves it. It is the first time in a long time I have seen Suzie get after her food and not stop until it was all gone. Hobo and Peaches were dumb founded and could not believe they didn't get any of it. What they got was their regular WD/ dry with some Beneful in the mix. It is still cool and raining here in the Deep South. What a nice break in the weather in the middle of July. They yard looks so nice and green. I am sure we will catch it next winter with another hard one. That seems to be the pattern when we have a mild summer. You can look for nice temperatures for the Old Fella Rally in September and just maybe some changing of the leaves into fall colors in the higher elevations. Gary I hope you will be able to attend and have your motorhome repaired by then. I think Ava and Allison will rent a cabin for the rally and be among the folks attending. Okay I need to get moving and get ready to face the day. Hope everyone has a blessed day and I will talk with you later.

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

Good morning everyone. It is still raining and cool here this morning. I don't mind the rain as it is a soft gentle rain and the ground is soaking up all of it. We had some breaks yesterday with some sunshine peaking through at times and the temperatures are very nice for this time of year. Max went home yesterday. He was glad to see his dad. Our girls are doing fine after eating all of their breakfast. They are now sitting around waiting on me to take them for a walk. We will get to that in a little while. Gary any word on repairs for your camper? Although I never met James Garner I felt as if I lost a friend this past weekend. He was so much a part of my teen years and then shared a lot of my adult years as well. I always enjoyed his acting and the roles he played during his career and he seemed to live a clean life off screen. I also lost a favorite pair of pants yesterday. I have worn these pants for years and yesterday Sue found a hole in them and said it is time to trash them. Old friends are hard to leave behind. Yesterday I was talking with Denis at church. He does floors for a living and he is supposed to be doing the floors in the new house being built down the street. He told me he had to stop because the subflooring is not correct and is not the same thickness in places and there are gaps between some of the boards. He told Daniel, the owner about it and was told the person who put the subflooring in told him he bid the job too cheap and he would have to live with it. So now they are at a stand still waiting for instructions on what to do next. If he takes some action against the guy who put the subflooring in it will delay the completion of the house for months or perhaps more than that. He had the same problem with the floors in another house he had built at the end of the block and had to rip out all the flooring and start over after he moved into the house. I guess some people are slow learners. Okay I need to get moving, Have a blessed day and I will talk with you later.

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

Good morning everyone. It is still raining and cool. The girls are fine and went out for just enough time to take care of business. Max is still with us, such a sweetheart. Last night he slept in my lap for most of the evening. In spite of his handicap he is a happy soul and gets around okay. Once he got the lay of the house he has managed very well. He eats well and takes care of business when we take him outside. Suzie still smiles at him when he gets close to her, but she doesn't make a sound and looks at me ready for my disapproval of her actions. Okay we are leaving for church, have a blessed day and I will talk with you later.

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

Good morning everyone. There is a nice soft rain this morning with cool temps. It has been raining since yesterday afternoon and the high yesterday was 74. This is nice for July when you expect it to be in the 90's. We have had some very nice summers for the past few years. However we have paid for it during the winter months. The girls are enjoying the cool weather. Yesterday we went for an afternoon walk before the rain started and Suzie had the best time. Hobo disappeared in the tall grass and I had a hard time getting her back to the house. I don't know what gets into her at times but she walks to her own drum beat as if she is lost in some kind of trance being off in Never, Never Land. By the way that was a great movie, "Finding Never Land." Max is still with us. He was so restless last night. He got up about ten last night and wandered about the house for hours. I took him outside and he piddled around sniffing every blade of grass in the front yard. After about twenty minutes I brought him in and I went to bed. Sue had to get up about five this morning and let him out and this morning I found him in the back bathroom asleep in the rug. He ate all of his food and is now resting. I hope all is well with everyone and you have a blessed day.

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

I hope everyone has had a blessed day. It has been peaceful here with some great weather. I finished cutting the back forty today and noticed how well the yard looks for this time of year. I feel lost without the Lincoln sitting in the garage, but it won't get worked on until next week. I might get it back by next Friday. I have looked all over this area for someone to work on it, but when I find someone who has a good reputation they can't get to it for at least two weeks. Max is doing well and seems to be enjoying his visit with us. He is really a sweet boy and loves to snuggle. Susie smiles at him if he gets close to her, but she knows better than to do anything stupid like snarl or jump at him. Max just came into the big room where we are and has found a spot next to the front door on the carpet he likes, so he has settled in for the night. I feel as if I have a lot hanging over my head right now concerning my health. I go to the doctor next week for another round of blood work and a PSA. I then go back a week later to hear the results. My GP has already called me concerning my visit with Dr. Flanagan and agrees with him I need to have another biopsy. What am I gaining here anyway? I am seventy-three years old and have had a great life. Even if I am free of cancer how much longer do I have anyway? What's ten years, fifteen years in the big picture of things to come? All I care about is quality not quantity of life. Anyway we will see what the new test results are and go from there. I feel sure I will see those who come to the Old Fella Rally next September as I will still be able to travel. Who knows what is ahead for any of us? Okay that's enough for tonight, have a great night's sleep and wake up in the morning feeling fresh and blessed that God has given you a new day to rejoice and feel happy. Good night all. Talk with you later if God wills it.....
