Well, Evelyn, I have read all of your recent posts and boy have you had some interesting things happen. I am hopeful that you have the same results that I have always had when having difficult times and wondering, why me. There is always a reason and it will become clear. I think about Goliath being protected in an rv enclosure, and the first big hail storm, he will be safe. I don’t know what to say about that person who is complaining about your parking your rv at your home, but can only pray for him as he must be a very unhappy, jealous person. We all have things that have happened that could bend us toward anger and hurt if we let it. It seems he is willing to let it, not me, I am going to look for good in everything I encounter. I know just from reading your thoughts and messages, you are not one to get down in the dumps and look on the bright side. Still trying to figure out the motive of those punks who shot out your windows. Sadly, there are too many of them out there who do not have the proper family support and they have taken the wrong turn. I hope they get help before they do something that really hurts someone.

I have been off the radar for some time. Dropped my computer and had to leave it for major repair. Getting a MAC fixed is not something you can do just anywhere. In the meantime, I went with my friend from home, she flew out this way for a camping experience. We were able to go way back on a ranch of someone who knows her family. It was some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen. We kept a generator running a lot for power and keeping the batteries charged. Total solitude. Wonderful fishing, hiking, stream wading and sight-seeing. Lots of down time, reading etc. I guess that is the camping life at its best. I left Boomer parked on the spot, came into town to get my computer, restock, etc and am staying the night here in a motel, got to get Vinny washed as well, he is one dirty boy. Gave me a chance to send messages and read of your “adventure”. Sounds like you have it all under control and I am wishing you the best.
Until next time, Ashley.

Ashley, I am so glad you posted. I have been wondering how you are doing. I'm happy for you that you are getting in some good camping experiences.

Did you catch any fish? What kind?

As for me, I fought "being told what to do", but once I realized it was a fight I could not win, I reluctantly, let it go. I absolutely HATE being dictated to....especially when it makes no sense. The fact that some jerk made a complaint that caused the response of the HOA, really got my Irish Up!

The worse was the drive by shooting! Glad I have good insurance, so I only have to pay $250. Of the $1610.

There simply is no rational for some of the crap that happens, and once dealt with, all we can do is let it go. I have never been one to get down in the dumps. I bounce back pretty well. Can't keep a good woman down.

Angry Goliath after the BB SHOT!

Wishing HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to all you MOMS out there!

I should get a call next week to take Goliath in for repairs. I will be so glad to have it back in good condition. I will try to post a couple photos...not sure how...

You can't.

Use the edit function in your photo app to reduce the original picture in size, and repost.

Works for me every time.

I gave up on trying to reorient pics.

Yesterday was a nice day. Deb and I celebrated Mother's Day, and we have flowers all over the house. Deb bought me the most beautiful rose bush...called "legend". The roses on it are bigger than a bread plate, and the lady at the nursery told her they will be even larger than salad plate in maturity. The fragrance is similar to my favorite perfume, JOY. So lovely.

She also gave me two hanging baskets of large and small petunias, with other flowers mixed in. She could not resist and got two for herself. Then, her two adult kids, Matt & Nicole, came over...each bringing a lovely flower bouquet of roses mixed with others, and presented one to each of us.

I cooked chicken breasts with mushrooms and sauce, and a veggie side dish...Deb made mash potatoes, and topped it off with a luscious strawberry cheesecake from Costco...(love their baked goods). We made extra, so no cooking required for this evening's dinner. (Deb has to work today). I give myself permission to just 'do nothing' today!

Oh, a cute little story..... At Costco's early yesterday....I rounded a corner of an aisle, a young couple were standing by a display of ammo boxes. I asked him to please hand one to me. He asked, "a gift for your husband for Father's Day?" I said, "no, it's for me." He says, No Way! I said, "yep, Nana goes packing"! They both "cracked up laughing", and he said ...."all right! Pistol packin' Mamma!" Later, at checkout lane, they were 2 lanes over...and he noticed me and shouted out," there's the pistol packing Nana!" Of course, everyone looked my way...I must have had a red face! I still smiled back.

Service manager at M-B called yesterday...the parts are in, so we'll take Goliath in for repair Wednesday and, if all goes well, pick it up Saturday. I hope the "owies" are fixed with no problem!

So hard to have damage to a brand new rig.

Protagonist had his broken into and burgled the first night, I think, tho he lives in New Orleans.

Yes, we all dread that first little rock ding on the windshield or the first scratch....but, this vandalism is a bit much. I literally felt sick when I first saw it.
Not much we can do but to get repairs done and shell out the $$$, and keep moving forward. Can't cry over spilt milk. It does no good.

Goliath is in good hands...at the Mercedez-Benz dealership. After picking it up on Saturday, I (hope to have) a secure storage lot to take him to...talked to owner this morning, and he is working on it for me...keeping my fingers crossed!

Things are finally coming together in a positive manner!
Received calls this morning:
M-B called, "Goliath" is fully repaired. I pick it up on Saturday. They are giving me a 10% discount, so that will help with 1/2 the deductible.
Owner called from storage lot, and he has a space for me, emailed me the form to fill out, and I sent them back, so, I'll take the interstate in Saturday to store...in a nice and secure place. They have concrete pads, free dump station, etc. they also have spaces for electric hookup for winter...more expensive, but, I may need to get one to keep a charge on the batteries.

All is good....drama is coming to an end. Now, I can concentrate on upcoming trips. Yeah!
