Great idea for him, I hope he finds something he likes, be it Interstate, BaseCamp, or even a cute little Bambi.

Tomorrow is a "go" day, so I'm doing what I do the day before...tidying and cleaning a bit.

One of the decorative plastic pieces along the rear windows, that masks the screen area where they attach to the frame, has been loose and wobbly because the Velcro stripping has come loose. It's been loose for awhile.

So I pulled it out, tore off the mis-attached Velcro, wadded it up, and threw it away, knowing I had lots of Velcro tape in my toolbag with which to replace it. Not.

I have many yards of the fuzzy Velcro tape, not a single inch of the rougher texture stuff that I need to return this piece of plastic to its residence in my Interstate...not a single, inch.

So, it will float around in here until I stop somewhere tomorrow and buy some more....that lot will go as previous lots, using up the rougher texture side while accumulating the fuzzy side in my toolbag.

Why is it that only one side of the Velcro always needs replaced.

It's a conspiracy by Velcro to make us buy more tape.

When I was in WalMart the other day, I spied a bag identical to one I bought last year...on clearance for $5, covered with pretty little flowers, and beautiful red roses on a black background.

It was approaching Valentine's Day, and Doug led me to roses, that's what immediately came to mind...so, I bought it.

I now have two, identical, rose covered, canvas bags, which will hang one over the other in my hanging-things, storage area just inside the door....extra, off the floor, vertical storage.

And, roses.


Maggie

The picture doesn't do justice to the colors of these bags...which are gorgeous.

What they are is pretty, very inexpensive, vertical storage, and have gotten non-dog items out of the neighboring Duluth seat organizer which hangs behind the passenger seat.

And, roses. I like.

Tomorrow is the "go" day, today is the getting-ready-to-go day.

I bought a couple of hook type jacket hangers a few years ago, that snap over the posts to the headrest of the passenger seat...they have been very handy, and are occasionally even used for a jacket.

That's where those bags are hanging, and there are other items on the other side of the seat....use of vertical space is a good thing.

Maggie, that pattern is almost identical to a favourite blouse that I wore....and wore....and wore. As you say, sometimes you find something that you just like to look at. I'm sure other people were sick of looking at it, though.

Maggie, I buy my velcro tape at a fabric store and they sell it off the roll by the foot. They sell the fuzzy and the sticky stuff separately.

Wish we were close. I had a rented CPM (continuous passive motion) machine and when it was returned, they gave me the lambs wool cover which was held in place with WIDE sticky Velcro. I cut it off so I could use the lambs wool and now have a dozen 6" pieces of 2"-wide sticky Velcro. My Airstream has the fuzzy "mouse fur" wall covering so some of these will be utilized to hold things to the wall, but I sure don't need all of it!

Thanks for that suggestion, Gerard. I'll go in there.

I have had another day of driving thru insane traffic, and high winds, but am at Joseph & Gabrielle's for the night, and I am glad...to see them, and to be...still. Yikes.

We are going to cook and eat and drink a bit.

I brought porterhouse steaks, as today would be Doug's birthday...and he would choose red meat.

Thank you, ladies.

The steaks were delicious, cooked on the grill by Joseph, along with asparagus and mashed red potatoes with butter, sour cream and garlic, prepared by moi....a real meal, and Doug would have loved it.

Lily got my steak bone, and was beside herself.

I'm a bit dreading the drive to New Windsor this morning, as my nerves have had about all of the heavy traffic they can take, but it shouldn't take too long...tho the drive here was 2 hr 51 min per gps and actually about 5 1/2.

But, once I get there, I will be settled in for a few weeks, and that will be nice.

Have I mentioned that Lily will not only be introduced to SIL's aging English Bulldog, but my daughter's temperamental, and intolerant, cat?

That will be interesting, but domesticated cats and dogs have been working things out for many hundreds of years, so I figure these two will, as well.

Next update, from the new house!

Maggie
