A fellow told me and from what I have read, there were only 12 made and four left on the road. I would give you a picture but don't know how.
Thank you again for letting be be a part of the campfire! I am planning a trip to the Black Hills in june, my first outing alone. I can do this!! I am learning so much here! I think I figured out the picture thing, I hope.

Hey Sue you did great - What a cool looking Class C!!! I wish Airstream made a Class C like that - instead they have the Sprinter - but I am not really keen on the style of it - too thin - friends of ours drove them and they are really tippy in the wind.

I think the SS are really cool - actually anything that is aluminum and shinny is really cool.

We'll show ours if you show us yours tee hee.... Can't wait to see more pics on the interior too.

Would not be a Silver Sister Camp Fire if All Silver Sisters weren't welcome ALL THE TIME!!!!!

Oh so cool - your blog was a pleasure to read...OI had vissions of the Long Long Trailer when Dezi took out their Aunts pergola at the side of the house...

Hey you could always let some air out of the tires to fit her under - then block her off the tires - Or rent some heavy duty dollies get on them and take the wheels right off and wheel her under the carport - that way you can work on her under cover... and save on the leaks until you can get her all nice and sealed up.

Well thanks Dannie for the nice warm reception to my idea of "inviting myself" tee hee - no shyness in this one Keeping my fingers crossed for some travel this winter. And the SC/NC/GA is the area I am wanting to go...I really want to get back into playing golf - it has been way too long and life is getting too short...

Hey Lou - how have you been?

Thanks - I am sure it will be fine - just not the best timing really - but then nothing in my life seems to be the best timing - you just have to live with it and make the best of it....

So for Christmas this year I am asking for an early present of a Milkshake maker and a package of really colorful straws....a special drooling pillow cover. And an around the neck chalk board with nice colourfull chalks to write with. oh yes and a pill crusher and lots of Bailey's to swish it all down with....

Then for my birthday I will be asking the insurance company to cover all my new bridge work - cause I really don't feel like wanting to be without some chompers.....but have to wait for the jaw bone to heal.

We are really chilly here today - wow -24c brrrrrrrr very windy.

We went to a great musical on Saturday and picked up my brother this morning and got him safely over to my parents place. Had a nice Prime Rib for dinner - and now I am off to bed as I am dead tired.....

But before I retire tonight ladies...

I would like to bring something a little different to the Campfire - just because life really is too short to be unhappy!!!!

There is always a reason for everything that happens in our lives - we just have to look at what is important - Happiness.

And you know sometimes we get way too hung up on where we are going when really......

OK Sharon

I am glad to hear that you are ready for your dental work. Still sounds pretty rough. I will keep you in my thoughts.
I have been fine. The doc says lose weight and watch my diabetes. She says it everytime. This time she did up my meds. I am trying but with the season comes all of the get togethers, which means temptation! Oh yikes!
I have been spending a ton of hours on my new friends at the nursing home. The doc told us that my mom is declining due to the advancing Alzheimer's Disease. Keep her busy and active as we can. So I have been going over there to work on Christmas cards and crafts...and of course I cannot say no to letting them all play with my "stuff" and teaching them how.
And I even have an older gentleman learning to crochet! More fun!!!

Sharon, Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Mouth surgery is not my idea of a good time. Hope it goes well and you heal very fast.

Sue, Can't wait to hear all about your baby. Do you sleep in the overhead over the cab? Glad the gas prices have come down-should make your travels more pleasant.

checking in...

Hanging out today...Got a pot of Mokka Java to pass around. Also a kettle going for some tea...sugar? One lump or two?

Been back home at the condo since Sunday. Going for my knee MRI this afternoon. Will wait and see what the tech can tell me if we decide to return to the airstream or not. I know the extra hour in hubby's commute (each way) is killing him. Knee is still swollen and kinda locked into a certain position (no pivoting), but the ambient pain is gone. I only get pain when I overdo and move it wrong. That's a good sign, right?

Loudruff, I've been trying to teach myself to crochet. Only project I can really tackle is a potholder. First one turned out; second one looked funky. I can't get consistency. Working on third potholder now. I'm to crochet what Ellie Mae Clampett is to cooking.

But I keep trying! Things turn out kinda wonky and lopsided like the throw I'm working on (made with love?). I have a question. When you start your chain do you count the first loopover as your first chain? I need to come up your way after the snow melts. Been away from Ohio too long (lived in Toledo 22 years ago), and not used to snow...LOL!

Dannie, I added you to my reader...

Dare I be optimistic and pack stuff up to head back to the airstream tonight?

Two lumps please Louis, thank you. And how about a nice hot cinnemon roll? Always nice to bake and get together for a coffee clutch to warm up the kitchen and spirit.

Such rotten luck and timing to have twisted your knee. I hope they get it mended in short time. Knees are so tricky.

Your potholder and throw look great! What yarns did you use? It looks nice and heavy for the throw and nice colors. I love to crochet too but Lou is a great teacher and crocheter. I saw a filletcrochet piece she did and it was perfect and so detailed.

Cool on the blog front. I love that song and those lights too! I enjoy following people's blogs. You do a great job of it. Did I already mention about that chicken being on my list to try?

tonight?
Thanks for the nice compliment, Carol! I love to crochet! And teaching is fun too. I am having a good time with my "oldsters" at the nursing home. They are nice folks who have incentive to learn NOW!
Lois, you do not count the loop on the hook when you are counting the chains. If you have internet you can find lots of good lessons in crochet on YouTube. Here is one that shows chaining.YouTube - how to crochet 1
If you type in "crochet+how to" in a Google search you will find lots of videos that some nice people have done to show you exactly how to do it. It is wonderful! I taught myself through books and pictures and many hours of watching my gram do the repetitive motions. It has such a wonderful rhythm when you get going. Very calming! Wish you were closer by, I would love to see your work and get you going. I think the wondy quality is due to the tension that you are putting on the yarns...too loose or too tight. You correct that by how you hold the yarn. The above link will show you one way to hold it that usually works for beginners. Maybe we will bump into one another one of these days in warmer weather. I live in a small town sw of Cleveland by about 30 mi. We DO have courtesy parking! Although I know with painful knees you aren't coming north in the snow!
Lou

Lou, I've watched video upon video... I even have books. I'm going to keep trying. I know that sooner or later it's going to happen. Practice makes perfect...right? LOL!

The yarn for the throw is Lion Brand Homespun -- color: Regency. It's soft and fuzzy.

Thundering down here... dark and rainy. Perfect for snuggling.

CJ, thanks for the blog compliment. Which chicken recipe? the spatchocked one? YUM! If you like feta try the feta theologos as well.

Oh Lou, had an old roommate from Strongsville and tons of college buddies from SW burbs. I'm an old BGSU grad from 1984.
