Yeah life is like that Lou...

My almost new iMac died right in the middle of working on my submissions and now I will miss the deadline. The mother board has pooched and I can not retrieve any of my data I was working on. And Of course I had not completed my November back up so I could not take them and work on them on my lap top...such is life. Have to wait till next years show or look for another opportunity.

Our TV has finally gone belly up too so we went out yesterday and bought a whole new Entertainment system.

wow Lois that is an impressive list to keep you hopping through your retirement.

Feeling a bit better Laura?

Shari nice cookies I was barly able to scrap some crumps by the time I saw your post...have not been on the computer much of late.

Lou how are you keeping and Larry has your baby all winterized now.

And you too Carol has been a while - hope you and Brad are doing well and he has recovered nicely. And Koa's elbow all healed?

I just picked up two cases of my favorite Blackcurrent Merlot and as soon as we clear our house of AV components sitting all over the place we will be starting two batches.....

Warm wishes out to Sue and Steph with your parents they do give us a bit of heartach and worry.

My Mom is doing great she was realeasd last wednesday and they had their first outing for dinner at our place on Saturday. I am starting slow in the assistance and will take two days a week and help Dad with house chores and take Mom to dialysis the other day To give Dad a bit of a respite.

We have splurged and paid for a ticket to fly my brother home for Xmas and he will help Peter build the new garage. So Xmas is at our house so I have lots of clean up and prep to get done.

I am looking forward to traveling - hoping I might get away this winter some time but will see how things go. Maybe I will treat myself this year and go to the Mardi Gras - heys Steph wanna go? Anyone else???

Tossing in some Canadian Kit Kats for some snacks sorry dry house at the moment....but since I know how to chop wood and do that thing with the axe here a stock of wood for the week

See ya around ladies.... I guess you will all be busy soon getting ready for your Thanksgiving....:flower s:

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!!!!

Shari, glad to hear you're okay. Sorry about the car. It's always a hassle when "stuff" like that happens. Hope the jigggle and bump aches feel better. Gentle hugs...

Laura, here's to finding your stuff...

Hubby just left for work. His job in Michigan will last between 6-12 months... maybe longer. This is why we got the trella (my nickname for the airstream). He's an engineer and goes where the projects are...

The trick will be finding a campground or place to park our home while in Reed City. not sure when the project begins and we'll be "up there" but we know it's after the first of the year.

Starting my day off with a mug of Mokka java coffee w/gingerbread creamer... thinking about doing laundry. It's sad when you look forward to laundry as "something fun to do."

Louis it looks like you aren't too far from Stanwood, Michigan. One of our silver sisters Vickie, lives in Grand Rapids and seasons at a very nice park called River Ridge right off 131, 25 miles South of Reed City. We have been there many times, it's a great park. It has a store, a marina right on the river, a laundry and a club house and great sites. Maybe check them out. Some of the Rivettes had a luau there too last year. mrs (Towdaddy) is Vicki's forum name. She knows the area well.

I just checked Suz is 37 miles east of Reed City in Lake George. (eikel1we) I'm afraid the majority of Michigan Silver Sisters are all much farther East. Sharon's in a whole 'nuther country! tee hee

Sharon Koa is doing well, like a 300 pound gorilla he does what he wants!

RIVER RIDGE RESORT in Stanwood, Michigan

Oooh! Cool!
Wonder if it's a year-round place...I found one possibility but can't remember the name of it. It was a year round place. I told hubby to start schmoozing with them.

Good thing is that I'll get a chance to meet some of y'all when I'm up there.

Y'all, I'm so not motivated to do anything today. Don't have my car with me so I'm stuck here at the campground. Will be picking my car up this weekend. Dont' have a real need for it, but it's nice to have it.

Do any of ya'll full-time or part-time full-time in your airstreams? Just wonderin'...

~G perfect timing on the Baileys I am parched for a little nectar to sweeten the nerves....

Oh geess Lois do I ever hear you on the laundry - what I thing to fill our days with eh?

Hats Off

Hats off to all of you strong women! It is so refreshing to see your postings. A stray cat that adopted me and I have been on the road for about a year now and have logged about 20K miles. We have had a book full of wonderful experiences and met 1000's of beautiful people (only 2 ugly ones) haha. It is shocking how many women are mystified by the workings of their rigs and many have never even driven them. I ask them how they would get home if God forbid something happened to their husband. Early on in my travel, I had a group of ladies surround me as I backed into one of those "you need a can-opener to get in" spaces and they all clapped. How proud I was, especially being such a novice.
It is such a rewarding experience to travel at will and I hope that your thread will inspire more people to take the jump and just go for it. It's really not rocket science. Happy travels to all!

I'm one of those mystified women. I confess. I hadn't even really driven hubby's truck ("Babe" - big Dodge 2500 diesel) until I had to last week.

I am learning the trailer systems. Hubbys' a great teacher. Very patient.

Too chicken to tow just yet. Still need to master the truck. This will come with time.

Baby steps!

Good evening Ladies

Hello.... Just wanted to say hello from the sunny south. It has been cool here but no snow. .... We just got out in time. I am working on the 12 step program for all still in the frozen north. Have some Raspberry Chocolat Port by the fire it will help ... tastes good whether you are in the cold north or in the warmer south..

Hi Lois, thanks for the e-vite! Ahh, the light at the end of the tunnel, the cherry on top, one thing you can look forward to that helps get you through your week…Happy Hour!

mmmmmmm good, and here are the marshmallows. I'd better stoke this fire. There, that's better.

OH ANNIE Your raspberry Chocolate port is to die for!!! Goody!!! Wonder if you will have as much snow as last year. BRRRR

Annie, where do you spend your southern winters? Will you be taking in the Can Opener? Here, I've got to make some room for my dear old dog. He toasts himself on one side and then works himself around to warm up the other with the campfire. Kind of like a marshmallow for a s'more. ~G
