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

Good morning everyone. I had a busy day yesterday. I hooked up the utility trailer and bought a load of fire wood and on the way back had a blow out on the trailer. Thank goodness I was turning on to the road that leads to the house so I drove the rest of the way home with the flat tire on shoulder of the road trying not to damage the rim. Sue helped me unload the trailer then I changed the tire with the spare. I am going to buy new tires this morning for the trailer and ten pick up bales of pine straw on the way home. Sue had a great birthday yesterday with many well wishes being sent her way. Last night we had the men's church gathering at the house as we studied the book "Knowing God's will and doing it." The girls are doing fine this morning after a hearty breakfast. Suzie is now in the kitchen while Sue takes some baked chicken and separates it from the bone hoping some will fall on the floor. It is beginning to look like fall as the leaves begin to turn on certain trees. I have heard we will have a very hard winter this year. I hope it's not so hard that being outdoors is unpleasant. We don't have any trips planned until December, the week after Christmas. We will be going to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for a week and celebrate the New Year there. Okay I need to get moving so I will talk with you later.

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

You are talking about the camper, aren't you? :W You should have that discussion with Sue...... I went to camping World yesterday and looked at motorhomes while the Montana's furnace was being repaired. The price of those things are unreal. At 73 years old I could finance a motorhome for twenty years making me ninety-three years old when it is paid for. They justified a sale they made by stating an eighty two year old man bought a motorhome and financed it for twenty years. I asked what happens if the eighty two year old man dies and leaves the debt on the motorhome for his family to pay for? They replied the bank gets it back or the family continues to pay for it. Imagine leaving your family with a motorhome with a debt of over one-hundred thousand dollars to be settled at probate. In all good conscience I could not leave Sue with a debt that large just for the sake of enjoying it while I was alive and leaving her with the obligation of paying it back by herself. Okay enough of that. The girls are doing fine. Suzie ran out the door this morning with her favorite toy. For some reason she wanted it in the yard with her while she took care of business. Hobo, Peaches and Izzie are okay but Hobo and Izzie were naughty this morning. Peaches was busy eating her food and was almost finished when Izzie attacked Peaches from the rear. Peaches left her food in an attempt to escape Izzie and Hobo moved in and finished Peaches food. It all was so quick and smooth it was hard to follow until I saw Hobo licking Peaches bowl. Okay I need to get moving so I will wish everyone a blessed day and I will talk with you later.

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

Good morning. Gary I am glad to see you and your fur babies are enjoying life. It is raining here this morning with a temperature of 65*. The girls have been fed and I am finishing a cup of coffee. I am supposed to take the camper to Camper World this afternoon to repair the furnace, however I am having second thoughts about traveling down Interstate 85 in the rain. I also have an appointment with Dr. Bob and Ernie Jordan at the church to discuss some church business. The 72 Lincoln is running great. We drove it to church and lunch yesterday and back to church last night. That old car sure turns heads. I stopped to buy gas Saturday on the way home and some folks came by for a look asking questions. One lady commented it was a beautiful old car and wanted to know if it needed a chaperone? I hope everyone has a blessed day. Give your fur babies a hug and be sure to tell someone today you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. Today promises to be a great one. The weather is supposed to bring us a nice fall day. Suzie, Hobo, Peaches and Izzie are well and loving their days of cool weather. When Charles and Charlotte were here I pulled out some picture albums and one was of the early days of Old Fella, Levi, Anna, Suzie, Dixie and Savannah. Such beautiful memories of a life changing time in the lives of many. I hope to bring to the next rally all the pictures I have of the first rallies and the many pets that have been saved through the efforts of the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue.

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

Good morning everyone. This morning I had the best cup of coffee and looked out over the back yard to think what a great life Sue and I have with the best of friends. Charles and Charlotte came for a visit yesterday. We went out for lunch and came back to the house. I pulled out some photo albums of Old Fella Rallies and we looked at some memories. The girls are doing okay. The vet called about Hobo's blood work and in his words it was "Immaculately good." So I guess she is good to go for a few more years. The 72 Lincoln will be ready today. I went by for a look at it yesterday and it really looks good. All the little chips and blemishes are gone along with some troubled rust spots that had appeared under the driver's door. The passenger window needed a new motor which I was able to get on line and shipped over night. Today we have church visitation and lunch at the Moonville Grille and then back home to watch the Georgia, Tennessee football game. It is supposed to start raining tomorrow and rain through Monday. The days feel like fall and we are seeing much cooler temperatures at night. The day time temps are in the upper 60's to lower 70's, nice to be outside. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and talk with you later.

RE: Old Fella Rally October 5-12 2015 Great Smoky Mountains

The Old Fella Rally for 2015 is scheduled right in line with the fall colors. The campground is one of the nicest you will ever find. Be sure and call in your reservations as soon as possible because October is a prime month for camping in the Great Smoky Mountains so campgrounds will be starting to fill up. In order for the group to be close together in a group it is important to get reservations in early.

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

Good morning everyone. It has been a busy week and there will be no rest for a few more days. Hobo went to the vet yesterday for blood work. As soon as it is processed they will call give me the results. She acts tired at times but her appetite is very good. She will eat anything placed before her as long as it is food. Sue made Suzie's special food yesterday with chicken, rice, green beans and kidney beans. Peaches is doing well, but she has been placed back into her kennel crate at night because of her wandering around the house at night getting into trouble. The Lincoln is still in the body shop having some cosmetic things done and repairing the window on the passenger side. I had to order a motor that raises and lowers the window yesterday and have it delivered over night so I can get it out of the shop sometime today. Its amazing you can still find parts for a car that is forty-two years old. I found a place that specializes in old Lincolns and has just about everything you could need in the way of parts. My trip to the doctor has earned me another biopsy of the prostate. I am scheduled to have that done November 5th. I don't understand how his PSA results can be so different from my regular doctor. However as Dr. Flanagan pointed out both results are high. So he and Sue convinced me to have another biopsy done. Okay that is enough for this morning. Here's wishing everyone a blessed day, talk with you later.

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

Good morning everyone. This morning I go to the Prostate doctor for another round of talks and get the results from the last blood work. I don't know what to expect but Sue and I are going together so we will both hear what he has to say at the same time. I must admit that I went a little crazy for about 48 hours. Thank God I came to my senses last night. I was not able to sleep thinking about all that is on my plate and the things that didn't need to be there. I came to the conclusion there is no motorhome in our future. Can't afford what we want and couldn't even get it into the yard. The street we live on is a single lane road with a deep ditch on either side and we just do manage getting the fifth wheel into the yard let alone a 42 foot motorhome. It is a good buy for someone but not for us. It is four years old with very low mileage and looks like new. However by the time we pay for it and buy a vehicle to tow behind it we would have to let it sit in the yard and look at it because we couldn't afford to buy diesel fuel for it. Sue wants to retire in a few years so we need to be down sizing not creating more debt. Okay now that is out of the way I wish everyone a blessed day. Thanks for all who help make the Old Fella Rally such a success, great bunch of people.

RE: Old Fella Rally October 5-12 2015 Great Smoky Mountains

X2 on Riverside Campground and Resort. This is our favorite campground to stay in when we are not staying at ELKMONT Camp inside the Smoky Mtn Natl Park. Real nice folks that run the place. Roy and Carolyn Why don't you come join us at the rally??

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

Good morning everyone. We had a wonderful time at the Old Fella Rally this year. The area was beautiful and the campground was very nice. I have already posted on the rally thread the time and location for the Old Fella Rally for 2015. It is nice to be home and start our daily routine. The girls were happy to be home and of course Lily was very happy to see us. She greeted us as we pulled into the driveway and made sure Hobo, Suzie and Peaches were okay. Izzie was also happy to see us home and stayed close to Sue and I all day and slept with us last night. Sue and I have been toying with the idea of a motorhome so we can take Izzie with us and Sue can share some of the driving duties. I believe Sue could drive a motorhome better than she could pull the camper. So we are looking at different options trying to stay on the road and camping as long as we can in our Golden Years. Does anyone know why it is called the Golden Years? There is some doubt in my mind about something Golden when it looks like more trips to the doctor's office, more pills to take and special diets to keep your body from falling down and falling apart. There are parts of my body that doesn't work any more and some parts that don't work as they used to and then there is the parts that seem to be missing??? Okay I need to get moving and get ready to face the day. God bless you and an may you have a blessed day.

Old Fella Rally October 5-12 2015 Great Smoky Mountains

Come join us at the Old Fella Rally in the Great Smoky Mountains in Sevierville, Tennessee. Riverside Campground and Resort is the site for the rally. The Old Fella Rally was held at this campground in 2014 and it was so well liked that it was chosen again to host the rally in 2015. Every family that attended the Old Fella Rally in 2014 registered for the rally in 2015 before they left. That says a lot about how great a campground this is. http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s211/Levi449/Picture699.jpg The legacy lives on as people from all over the United States join together to celebrate the life of Old Fella and the inspiration he generates to keep the rescue effort alive. Make your reservation today and see the beautiful Smoky Mountains in fall colors next October. Gather around the evening campfire and share stories of adventure and inspiration. It is a time of building memories and making new friends and keeping in touch with old friends as well.

The Old Fella Rally for 2014 has come to a close. What a wonderful time we had. Everyone who attended registered for next year's rally to be held at the same place October 5-12 2015. That says a lot for the campground and the good time had by all. $1,372.00 was raised for the Old Fella Rescue effort.

Wow what a great time we are having. This is a beautiful place with so much to do and see. The campground is top of the scale and the folks are so friendly. Today we will have a Bar-B-Q lunch brought in and then we will have the raffle. Yesterday one of the park employees gave a nice donation to Old Fella and the rescue effort. Next year the rally will be closer to the fall colors so I am looking forward to next year's rally.

Another great day. Country Tonight was a show for the family and very good. Lots of talent and entertainment for the money. With the hang tag from the campground and $32.50 a couple got inside to see the show. Last night we sat around the campfire again and everyone had a good time. By nine O'clock I was done and had to leave for bed. I don't know what we will do today but tonight we have a pot luck dinner going on. Lots of fun going on for everyone.

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

Yep we are having a great time here in the Smoky Mountains. The campground is super nice and so big. There are no bad sites here in the campground. The river is beautiful that flows around the edge and last night we sat around a campfire right of the river bank and talked about old times and the different rallies from the past.

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

We had a very nice day yesterday. Some folks went to Cades Cove while some went shopping at the factory outlets. Dan and Dan and myself went to Camping World and to the Smoky Mountain Knife store. Last night we sat around a campfire and shared stories from the past rallies. We have planned to come back next year for another Old Fella Rally. What a nice campground! The people who operate it are so friendly. We have planned to see a show this afternoon and tomorrow we will have a pot luck afternoon meal. It is so nice to be together with friends and I look forward to the fellowship for the rest of the rally.

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

We are looking for a good day. We have one more couple to arrive so Mark come on down. We will plan activities for the week this morning. It looks as if there is a lot to do. As Walter mentioned we had a huge storm come through yesterday afternoon. It hit the down town area very hard with high winds and hale. We got heavy rain and some wind but nothing that would cause damage. It is cool here this morning with a high in the med 70's for the day. Tonight we will have a campfire gathering down by the beautiful river that flows through the campground. So far everyone arrived without any trouble along the way so we are all in hood spirits and looking forward to the rally.
