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

We made it to Wytheville, Virginia. It was a nice trip for the start of our journey, everything went well. Could have knocked my socks off at the diesel pump when I check the fuel mileage, 9 MPG. Not bad for this big rig with the Ford Edge in tow. If you are ever this way Fort Chiswell is a nice campground, easy to get in to, nice and clean. This morning Peaches saw we were getting into the motorhome and turn and went back into the house. Hobo didn't want to go either. Peaches slept in the bedroom while Hobo slept on her bed which was positioned very close to Sue. Susie rides on the couch and sleeps most of the time while we are traveling. Our campsite is a pull through located on the back row, so there are campers in front of us. With the tow behind us I will have to unhook it so I can back out of our campsite in order to get out in the morning. I hope all is well with everyone. Dan we will see you sometime tomorrow if the Good Lord is willing and the creek doesn't rise. Okay that is enough for now so 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. There is a lot to do today so I had better get started. Yesterday it was so hot outside I didn't go out unless I had to. Still no rain, much needed at this time as the yards are showing signs of stress from the heat. Today we are looking for a high of 96 degrees according to the weather forecast, no rain in sight. Virginia has been on the news because of all the flooding. Sue and I will be passing through parts of Virginia in few days, so I am watching the weather there to make sure we don't have a problem with the flooding. The Old Fella rescue is still running strong. Margie is doing such a great job keeping up with all the strays, finding foster homes from them and then getting them on the transport for the North East animal rescue where they are finding forever homes. I hope all is well with everyone and I am 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 has been a busy morning. Yesterday the well pump went on vacation without notice. When the guy got here to fix it he found ants had invaded the well house and took up lodging in the switch that operates the pump. There were a lot of fried ants inside the housing that covers the switch. As a matter of fact there were so many their little carcasses block the points so they couldn't make contact. The sprinkler system was leaking at one of the station valves next to the house. It had been leaking so long the ground was saturated to the point that water was running out into the yard. Kept wondering why the bushes in that area looked so green and healthy and the grass was growing so well. It pays to check around your house for wet spots. The fur gang is well this morning. Took Suzie to the vet to get her shots, got to take Peaches and Hobo this afternoon. Sometime today I will pull the motorhome up next to the house and start loading it for our trip. I will be glad when I get the first leg of our journey under our belt, maybe I will feel better about towing the car behind the motorhome. I used to not worry about tires, water hoses, drive belts, fuel stops, traffic and the other stuff that goes with traveling. After experiencing so may tire failures over the years I cannot help but wonder on each trip if we will have a failed tire somewhere on the trip? It kind of takes the joy out of going somewhere. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sue 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}

It was pretty nice here today but this evening is questionable. Possible very heavy rains and winds and could get up to 4" of rain if it doesn't go around us. Keeping fingers crossed. Richard, Anna and Sarah are looking forward to seeing you and Sue as are we. I will bet with you via phone and try to explain where I want you to give us a call from so we can meet you and lead you in. Okay Dan sounds like a plan.

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

Good morning everyone. Rosie I didn't know about the Jockey Lot. I looked it up and it looks interesting. Lily's folks didn't make it home last night. I hope they are okay as we haven't heard from them. We need some rain. Haven't had any for a while and the yard shows it. Peaches is still getting around.She shows she isn't comfortable in her hips and legs sometimes, having difficulty climbing stairs. Her appetite is good and she drinks lots of water. She goes to potty on a regular schedule and lately she hasn't had an accident in the house. She gets confused about where sounds are coming from and she doesn't see that well. She has gotten very loving lately, wants to be near me and feel my hand on her. Rosie, Table Rock is one of my favorite campgrounds. The area is so beautiful with the hiking trails. It is the ideal place for a young couple with children to teach them the beauty of Mother Nature. A few years back when we had Levi we would walk the hiking trails with Levi with us. He loved the mountain streams and would swim or wade in them to cool off during the summer. He was such a love sponge an very obedient. He would never leave my side during our walks no matter what was happening. I loved him very much and there was a big hole in my heart when he went to Rainbow Bridge. We never knew he had cancer until one morning when everything went down hill fast. I was devastated to learn he had suffered for a long time with prostate cancer that spread to his bladder and other parts of his body. He never complained and was always a happy soul. He and Old Fella were the best of friends along with Izzie. It was Levi that found Izzie as a small kitten in the bushes next to the house and brought him to the front porch saying "Look what I found". That was fifteen years ago and though lots of changes have taken place Izzie is till with us reminding us that it was him that kept all the fosters pups and dogs in line while they were at the house. 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. Happy travels to those on the road.

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

Rosie wrote "We leave Friday for our little trip to Anderson." How is the campground in Anderson and what do you do while there? We have been looking for a place close to home where we can kick back and enjoy the weekend. We really like Table Rock. but if you don't get a place down front there is trouble getting level and some of the sites are tight. Hope all goes well with your outing and glad you and Art are doing well.

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

Good morning everyone. Is Harlee for rent. Might make a great partner for playing cards. Yesterday was a nice day. Not too hot with a gentle breeze blowing making thing pleasant outside. I took the motorhome out to fill up the fuel tank, now ready to finish loading it for our trip. Dan we are coming to your house by way of Virginia missing The big cities of Cincinnati and Dayton. It is a little further going through Virginia but well worth the few extra miles. We hope to see you Tuesday. The girls are doing great. Lily has brought a little fresh air into the house with her excitement and energy. Her folks come home today. We are losing a beautiful Pine tree next to the pond by way of Beavers. They or it has chewed almost through the trunk of the tree and just waiting for a wind to blow it down of for the Beaver to finish the job. I am content to let them have the smaller trees next to the pond, this one however is another matter. I don't want to kill the Beavers and trapping them is a chore, so what to do? It is going to be hot today and even hotter tomorrow and Thursday. Most likely it is a good time to head North for a visit. 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. I am glad Gary called my attention to Mistletoe and Modoc. I don't know what I was thinking. They are miles apart. One in Georgia the other in South Carolina. I had to look at the Georgia map to try and figure out where Mistletoe was located, couldn't remember that either. Finally got it all straight, But confused about being so confused when I lived in eth area most of my life.:h Okay now that this mess is straightened out let's see what else I can confuse. The Sunday I preached a good friend Joe Capitan walked up to me just before the service began and says to me "Don't mess this up." This week starts the count down. One week from today we start on our journey to Ohio and Michigan, Let's hope I don't get this confused and start out to Waynesboro or Waycross, Georgia. Okay enough of this. I have to get ready to face the day 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}

I thought Old Fella lived at Modoc campground in SC. Mistletoe State Park is in Georgia. You are so right. Don't know what I was thinkiing:S

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

Storm hits Mistletoe campground. This is a state park located on Clarks Hill Lake. My mistake about this being the park where Old Fella lived as a stray. They are at opposite ends of the lake. One is a State Park located in Appling Georgia, the other is a Corps of Engineer Campground in Modoc South Carolina. Just shows I am getting senile. Thanks Gary for the heads up.

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

Good morning everyone and Happy Father's Day. Rosie the motorhome doesn't have jacks, it uses air bags to level the coach. I can take it to the Freightliner dealer down the road from me and have them check the tires. However I am satisfied at this point they are okay. Tires are big investment but trying to shortcut in that area can bring some bad results. I plan to run these tires for the summer and then next winter I will replace them and know I have good tires on the ground. Last night Sue and I went to a local Mexican restaurant. We started out going to Taco Bell but ended up at this place in Piedmont. The service was good, the food could have been better. Today we will go to church and then come home to start packing for our trip. Lily is having a good time. This is her second home. Many times she will come over for a visit. She will catch me out in the yard and want to come inside just to say hello to the girls. She comes in, runs through the house checking everything out, says hi to the girls and then wants out to go home. She knows when she has been left with us to spend a few nights as her Lion King bed comes over and we put it in one of the kennel crates in the bedroom. She is so protective of it and will go lay on it for the first few hours she is here just to establish her territory. At night she senses when we are about to go to bed and goes to the bedroom and goes to bed before anyone can claim her prize possession. Izzie is doing well. Whatever was bothering him a while back has past. 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}

Problem solved, all systems go.:B Bright daylight revealed a better view of the rear tires and they are okay. Dan see you and Lori as planned. If you wanted to see the inside tires dates, couldn't you put the rear jacks down and raise the chassis making it easier to slide in? There are no rear jacks. The coach's level system uses air bags.

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

I have looked at the date these tires were made and they have been replaced randomly. The front passenger side tire was made the 35th week of 2012. The front driver side tire was made the 35th week of 2012, So both of them were replace at the same time. The rear tires on the outside were replaced at different times. The right rear tire was replaced the 15th week of 2014 and the left rear tire was replaced at the same time the two front tires were replaced 15th week of 2012. I am not able to see the date on the inside rear tires but I suspect they were put on at the same time the front tires were done. Anyway we are going to travel this summer on the tires we have on the bus at this time. This winter I will replace all of the tires and be done with it.

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

Glad you got a better look. Most of us MH owners replace our tires every 6-7 years. Did you get the tire pressure monitoring system? Not yet.

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

Good morning everyone. It is very cloudy and cool this morning. The high today is supposed to be in the lower 80's, nice. We are keeping Lily for our neighbors this weekend. She is such a sweetheart, love her. I don't know what to do about our up coming trip. Sue says tires are not in our budget right now. The outside tires on the rear are dated 2011 and they look good. I don't know what the date on the inside tires are and there is a problem with the inside rear tire on the passenger side. The only way to know is to get underneath the motorhome and see if there is a date visible. The bus is low to the ground and crawling under it to find dates on tires is next to impossible. So as it stands right now our plan trip is in jeopardy. 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}

I just discovered I have a tire problem with the motorhome. The rear inside tire on the passenger side is worn down to the cord on the inside edge. Big bucks to replace all four on the rear. The tires are five years old. I will have to look at all four and make a decision before we start our travels. :(

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

Good morning everyone. Rosie it sounds as your plate has been full for a while now. Glad Art is doing better and feels like traveling. I have been looking at our upcoming trip to Ohio and Michigan planning some side trips maybe once we get to Michigan. John and Sandra have a trip planned for July 7-10 so Sue thought we might go further up into Michigan. I found a very nice Resort close to Muskegon called Duck Creek. looks nice. It will be hard I can imagine to find a campsite up there that time of year, but we will try. The fur gang is fine this morning. They got another round of beef stew mixed with the dry food. They love it. We will have another hot day today. I am going to Verizon to see about a sky card. We only want one for a couple of months while we travel this summer so I will see what they offer. 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.
