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

Good morning everyone. Gary is coming today so I have to move our camper to make room for him. Looking forward to his visit and perhaps we can make a trip to Waynesboro so he can see the Old Fella Memorial and see the old home place where the Old Fella story began after his rescue. Its hot this morning already. It was so hot yesterday I stayed indoors as much as possible. There are trees that have started to change into their fall colors, is that strange? We saw some of that in the mountains of North Carolina over this past weekend. I hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying your last weeks of summer. Things are changing as time continues to march along. I watch Hobo struggle with her hips and front leg joints and know her days are numbered. I talked with Dr. Moore yesterday about her blood work and her kidneys being under stress due to some of the medicine she is taking. He put her on a special diet and we discussed the continuation of her meds and I decided to continue to give her the Novox and the Furosemide regardless of its outcome on her body. I had rather take a chance on that than to see her in constant pain and struggling to get around. She is thirteen years old and has lived a great life for the past eight years so I feel good about the path I have chosen for her. Last night our garbage disposal gave up the ghost. I don't know how many times I have had to crawl under the sink to take apart the plumbing to unstop the lines where the stuff Sue is grinding up has lodged and stopped the sink form emptying. Of course I always try the plunger first as my first line of attack which puts pressure on all the seals and gaskets in the disposal where the problems is now. There is a leak in the seam where it is put together and I don't see any way to tighten it to see if that would stop the leak. So we are in the process of replacing the unit. I went into dangerous territory last night in talking with Sue about stopping up the sink with too much garbage going down the drain at one time. If there is one thing I should know is you don't move into some territories unless you are willing to do the job yourself. 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. The weather is hot. Yesterday it was 92 digress with no rain in sight. I guess we are home for a while as we don't have any trips planned until October. It seems anymore there are a lot of things happening that keep us home. Either it is doctor's appointments, something going on with the camper, or something going on at church. Lots of folks are dealing with some kind of illness and need to take care of themselves or their fur baby. Speaking of fur babies Hobo is struggling since she has been home. She has fallen in the house on the hardwood floors and needed help getting up. Last night she was walking through the living room while poop was coming out of her. It was as if she didn't know what was happening. I hate to see this with her as she is such an innocent soul. She really is sweet and all she wants to do is please. 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}

Gary, sounds typical of I95. There are times I don't understand why traffic comes to a stand still when there is no reason for it. I try to avoid I95 and I75 whenever I can. Be careful and drive safe.

RE: Pebbles first trip out

Just the beginning for a life time of memories with your fur baby. Always take pictures and make a scrap book, its always nice to be able to look back and remember.

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

Good morning everyone. We are back in to the sweltering heat and high humidity. Yesterday I emptied all the holding tanks in the camper and cleaned part of the carpet. When Gary arrives I will move the camper so he can have the hook ups. Camping World called to say they would not make it today but would come next Thursday. Gary says he won't be able to attend the Old Fella Rally this year as his travels just won't allow it, but at least Sue and I will get to see him in a few days. Today I have to proof read a book for Dr. William Owens. The book is about the life of the Apostle Paul. It is to be published as soon and the proof reading is done. Dr. Owen is a gifted man and served in the Southern Baptist for many years. He is now a member of the church where Sue and I go. On occasion he will preach and I love to hear him as he is such a scholar and when he preaches he brings the Bible to life. I believe he is eighty years old and he is still going strong. This Sunday I will be preaching and to know this man will be listening kind of gives me a sense of I had better get it right or I will hear from him. 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.

It is in a valley surrounded on all sides with mountains with a river running along the boundaries of the campground with excellent trout fishing. If you are interested PM me and I will tell you the name of the campground, don't want to do it on the thread as some folks might think I am advertising for them.

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

Good morning everyone. The humidity this morning is so high the windows in the house are sweating. Today I have to dump the holding tanks and clean the inside of the camper. Wednesday a repairman from Camping World is supposed to come and replace the gate valve for the galley grey water tank. Gary is coming Friday so I have to make room for him on the pad so he can hook up to the water, sewer and power. Looking forward to his visit. We really had a great trip to Cherokee. The trip brought many memories. We started going there every October twenty-two years ago with family. For ten years we never missed an October outing in Cherokee. This October will mark eleven years we have had an Old Fella Rally. The very first Old Fella Rally was in Branson, Missouri June 2006 at ABC Campground. That was a great time in our lives as we celebrated the life of Old Fella. Once he realized he had really been rescued and had a forever home where he could live inside the home with family he really loved it and appreciated it. Never once did I every have to scold him for doing something wrong. Well there was the time he stole the cheese ball off the dinner table during his first Thanksgiving with us, but after that, he was perfect. I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed yourselves. August is half gone and soon it will be September and then Fall weather will be with us. This years has gone by in a hurry. It had its moments when we had the motorhome, but God sure looked out for us when it was sold. What a blessing we got with that gone and we were able to purchase the truck and fifth wheel camper and pay for it. WE even could pay off the house and become debt free for the first time in our lives. Sue is a great money manager. I don't know how she does what she does with the money but sometimes I believe she has a printing press somewhere hidden in the house or a money tree growing somewhere on the property. 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}

Something funny that happened Saturday night. Its raining and Sue and I are relaxed watching cable TV. I am all stretched out in the lounge chair about half asleep when the water drain for the A/C stopped up and dumped cold water into the air intake vent and that dumped into my lap. It was a rude awakening, one that got me to my feet in a hurry. It hasn't happened again, but I am going to have it checked out when the guy comes Wednesday.

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

Hi everyone. We had a great trip to Cherokee, North Carolina. Unfortunately there was not phone service or wifi where we were. Everything went great. Hobo and Suzie enjoyed the new territory with the different sights and sounds. The camper behaved itself and so did he truck. First time ever I went to Cherokee and back without buying fuel to get home. Burned all eth diesel in the auxiliary tank, but the OEM tank still registers full. Now we have to get ready for Gary's visit in a few days. 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: Old Fella Rally October 16-23 2017

Well, we are finally sure we will be able to go. Got reservations for two weeks yesterday in the same site next to Dan and Patty. So glad you can make it. This gives us eight families and rigs.:B

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

Good morning everyone. We got some much needed rain yesterday. It started Monday night and rained all day Tuesday giving us about two or three inches. The heat wave is gone for now, but I am sure it will return. Gary I did at one time send my pictures to Wal-Mart to have them processed. The quality wasn't that good and some faded after a while so I decided it wasn't worth it. I used to have all my pictures process at Coppinger Color Lab in Tennessee, They were the best. When I was a professional photographer and had a studio and did wedding pictures I used them exclusively and never had a bad picture. They are expensive and only work with professional photographers with a sizeable account so I don't qualify anymore. Today I have to get Hobo's medicine and her dog food for her new diet. Sue just left for aerobics and told me she was going to stop by the church on her way home so she might be a while getting back. The fur gang is well this morning having eaten all of their breakfast and now waiting for a walk so I guess I had better get going. I will close 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. I must say using the photo down load meant for the RN.net is much easier to use. I have tried to save all of the photos on photobucket as I could so they won't be lost forever. It's raining this morning, must have rained all night. It's a nice soft rain, kind of misty and a drizzle more than a rain, but it is watering the landscape. It had gotten so dry the grass was turning brown and the plants were showing signs of stress. I hope all is well with everyone. Yesterday I went through some photo albums that were started fifteen years ago. Since digital came along I don't use film anymore therefore I don't save pictures to an album. So I guess the album days are over. This weekend we will be going to Cherokee for a few days. Looking forward to it as it holds many memories for us. We visited Cherokee every fall for eighteen consecutive years. For about twelve of those years we always had the kids join us with their campers, it was a fun time. The Old Fella Animal Rescue is doing well. Its amazing the work they do. So many dedicated people working to save the abandoned animals of Burke County and find them a forever home. Old Fella would be proud. 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}

Since Photobucket has decided to try to extort $399.00 per year to have my photos appear on RV.NET, I said adios and deleted my account with them. :M Going forward, I will be using Imgur, which is what member 1492 has set up for users here. I thought this photo from the first rally would be a nice test.:) http://i.imgur.com/KVxqUhGl.jpg That picture brings back a flood of memories. This was the first Old Fella Rally held in 2006 at ABC Campground in Branson, Missouri. That's Old Fella taking his ride in the parade.
