Happy New Year to all!

My contribution to the virtual pot luck tonight are the left over brownies we baked this morning for one last treat before we have to start being "good" tomorrow morning.

We just returned from Detroit Metro Air Port putting our number one daughter on the plane back to Austin, TX where she is in her first year of Seminary on the road to ordination as Priest. She made it very clear she would not be sad to get back to the 70 degree weather in Austin. After spending all 32 years of her life here in Michigan she was an easy convert to favoring the southern clime. Husband and I were also easily convinced to spend part of this winter in the warm south. So begins the planning.

Yummy brownies Nancy. A trip to Texas to visit your daughter sounds nice. Moving into the warm sounds appealing to me!

Happy Birthday Steph!! A New Year's baby! Cool.

Roger, MaryLou, Laura, hey guys, happy new year and spring can't come soon enough to suit me. Now which is better cold weather rally or waiting until June????

I spent the first 19 years of my life in cold, gray Michigan winters. No desire to ever go back to live. Come to NC, we still have 4 seasons but usually nothing extreme or lasts too long and the skies are Carolina Blue!!
Nancy, I know you must miss your daughter but must be very proud of her goals in life!
Can someone tell me how to put the smilies in these posts! I have spent a couple of hours sreading and can't find the how to.
Starting the Flat Belly Diet on Sunday-after the last holiday blast!!There now I have put it in writing, wish me luck!

I am ready Dannie. Anywhere. We lived in Moyak North Carolina when Brad was in the Navy for awhile.

To insert a smilie, place your curser where you want it and select and click on the smiles on the right or click (more) and have even more smilies to choose from. If you don't see them there in your reply box you may have to go to your user CP (tab on top of forums window) and change your settings. Edit options on the left then scroll down to message editor interface and select enhanced interface. maybe??

Happy New Year everyone - see you all survived and well padded up with all those delicious sweets and naughty drinks.

Hey Laura you must not have drank too much over the festive holidays to keep that nasty cold thing away....Get your dad to send over that recipe and pretend it is a Hot Toddy.

Love to share some leftovers but my Brother has eaten them all. We have shipped him back to my parents for a while. He has one week left and leaves next weekend.

The weather here has been so extreme and put a damper on his wood cutting. So next week keeping fingers crossed we have two large hemlocks in the front of our house that have been killed by one of the infamous beetles. So they will become a danger of breaking in the next year - so he said he would fall them for us. They have to fall into my garden and very close to the bunkie but I trust his felling skills - he has been a bush man for half his life and a trucker for the other.


WOW Steph you never said that you just celebrated your 30th Birthday Did you have a great party - Tell me you watched the Hockey game yesterday!! That Detroit team is awesome girl!! I did not think they could get any better but wow they are really hot eh?
Happy Belated Birthday Steph - hope you have a wonderful year and many many more HUGE Hugs and kisses on there way.

Carol did you have a chance to get your roof fixed? that was quite a few shingle ripped off. My parents place in Bath by Lake Ontario had that happen every time the winter winds picked up. I guess it keeps the roofing fellas in business.

We have had a bit of a reprieve from snow - almost 2 weeks I think - we had a dusting the other day but we have left it on the drive to give traction over the skating rink that we were left with from all the rain.

Getting pass port in order - YIKES it expires on the 9th popping the renewal in the mail today.

Checking out the Rally schedules to see what is up - any recommendations for GA, SC, NC and top of FL between Feb 4 - April 4

Or recommendations for nice campgrounds by the ocean? need to have wireless as a priority.

Hello All,

I am new to the whole airstream world, although I have wanted an airstream my whole life. I have always wanted to live like Gonzo on the television show Trapper John. M.D. I currently do not own one, but I am looking into it. I would like to live in one full-time while I finish my education. I really do not even no where to start. I am sure that this is the place to get all the pointers.

I look forward to reading all your posts and getting to know you.

VintageJane

Hi Jane, you need to buy a sky deck Airstream and sit on top!! View the slideshow Used Airstream Sky Deck RVs For Sale, Airstream Sky Deck Motorhomes Gonzo would be eating his heart out. Welcome to the forum you've come to the right place to learn about the many types of Airstreams, where to get them and what to do with them.

Sharon we had subsequent days of extreme winds and have lost much more roof, and no one has been able to come out yet. They are taking cases in order of need and torn off roofs are being seen first. Also the electricity in large sectors was out for days South of us towards the city.

Laura get well quick! Sorry to hear you are sick.

Florida (all NW coast campgrounds)
Camping on the Gulf in Destin, FL
Henderson beach State park
Topsail beach state park
Big Lagoon State park

Haven't stayed at any of these but know the areas pretty well.

There's a really good state park that is beachside in SC. Just south of Myrtle Beach. Everyone I know loves that place.

Hi Lois - THANKS for the suggestions - will key them in a see what I find.

Have lots of prep - with changing out the hitch and possibly even the tow vehicle - looking at maybe a newer GMC Yukon - 07. My little baby has been with us now for 5 years and is starting to nickel and dime us and running up in the miles - so it is a good time to do a trade - not going new - what a waste of money that is.

Well we are about to take the decorations down tomorrow and thought I would pop off a few of our tree this year.....

Hello Ladies, I just have to share my good news. With the New Year, I decided that I needed a change, so I just completly redid my room! I moved everything around, have a new bed set, im so excited! After having my bed in the same place for the past 7 years, I thought this was a good time for a change! I know this is the stupidest thing to write about, but Im just happy!

NOT IN THE LEAST!!!! We all get the 7 year itch - it just comes in different forms. And it is what makes us happy are the most important things in life Laura!!!!

Now run out tomorrow and get your self a new set of sheets and bed ensemble and watch your face really light up....nothing like 300 thread count - or maybe some silk sheets to slither into along with a big down comforter to cuddle up to.....
