Thank you all foryour kind words and thoughts. Our little Lila made her way to heave this morning around 11:15am. I cant even begin to tell you the pain I feel right now. When I think I cant cry anymore, I cry, the tears are like an endless river. I loved being an Aunt, it was the best thing in my life. I spent a lot of time with her, and I thank God for that, but I still feel it wasnt enough. She was the happiest baby I have ever seen. It hurts so bad to look at pictures of her right now, seeing what I had going in my life, and it was taken from me too soon. How can a person go from the happiest day of your life, to the sadest, in 3 months? This rollercoaster of my emotions is taking a toll on me. I sleep, but I dont seem to sleep long enough, whenever I wake the tears start again. I have so many regrets, and I try to think about the blessings in our life. The blessings bring some comfort. I feel im still in shock, so If I dont make sense, that is why. She was so perfect, and she was the best thing that has ever happend to me! I feel as though I have lost my own child, because that is what she was to me. I watched her 2-3 days a week, and saw her almost everyday. It hurts so bad, my whole family is just a wreck. They had flown Lila to the hospital, and my sister is not going to be able to afford the bill for it. If anyone even wants to help, Im going to take donations for my sister and brother-in-law to help pay for Lila's bills. If you would like to donate, please email me at kc8juz@hotmail.com and I will give you the information. Thank you all, and please pray for our family. Ask God to put his hands on my family, and to give us peace.

My daughter sent this to me a little while back and I found it encouraging so when I came across it tonight I thought I would put it up here to share with all my silver sisters but particularly for Laura.

God doesn't give you the people you want, He gives you the people you NEED - To help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you into the person you were meant to be.

Dear God:
The lady reading this is beautiful, classy and strong, and I love her. Help her live her life to the fullest. Please promote her and cause her to excel above her expectations. Help her shine in the darkest places where it is impossible to love. Protect her at all times, lift her up when she needs you the most, and let her know when she walks with you, She will always be safe.

Wondering if anyone can help me with some pointers.

I am looking at heading to Philadelphia and wanted to stay in my Airstream instead of a hotel ha of course - does anyone know of a campground that is within say 1/2 hour 40 min drive of downtown???

Anyway if anyone might know of where I might be able to stay that would be great. I am looking at the weekend and a few days ahead and behind 24-25 April if possible.

Church or some other parking spot would be fine boon docking even - worst case scenario I could do the Wal-mart parking lot if there was one....in the down town area...?

Any hints would be much appreciated.

We are still doing fine away from the snow - taking it easy weather is getting better now. I am being eaten alive by no-see-ums seems they really like me and hmmm I scratch too much!@!! Hey Carol it rings a bell with your feet in that dish tub at RiverRidge But I could not fit my whole body in a dish tub unfortunately.

Playing a bit of golf now - Taz is going for longer walks and doing great Haily is starting to drop an ounce or two on the new food and her infections are clearing up nicely.

Have not had any update garage photos from Peter - but the trusses are all done and the metal roof is now delivered.

The parents have moved into their new condo in Lakefield and are already happy in their sunny living room.

All is great!!! except for my bug bites me too is great tee hee....

We finally got our baby back today. The Princess has a new throne, sink and shower pan. Her rar end is now secure! We still have tons of work to do before her debut at Merlefest in N. Wilkesboro, NC in mid-April. I have 2 days to work on her beore I go to the Kanuga Watercolor Workshop in Hendersonville, NC, Suday. This will be a week of renewal and retrea for me and I am so looking forward to a week of focussing on nothing but my art. Laura, again I am so sorry for your family. I just can't imagine the heartache. Just know that there are so many folks out here sending you love and prayers. Sharon are you going to come through NC-we would still love a visit. I will try to get some new photos up later today. I am having a bout of insomnia-thinking about all the things I still need to do!LOL

Just wanted to let you know we got the Silver Princess back and I have a new blog and pictures up on www.Humzoo.com/reera
I painted all day yesterday and her interior is beginning to look good. The new electrical stuff and plumbing will be going in next week as well as her bearings being greased(don't we all need a little grease job for our joints?)Lots of odds and ends to deal with.
I leave tomorrow for a one week Watercolor Workshop at the beautiful Kanuga Episcopal Camp in Hendersonville, NC. This will be a week or renewal and peace for me plus the opportuinty to see other wonderful artist friends and to paint and paint. Also get to do some paddling, walking and photography. A week with minimal contact from the "real world."
I hope you all have a good week, spring is finally here so I bet you all are anxious to get out and do some RV'ing. Take care and I will talk to you when I get back. Dannie

Hey Sweet Laura - just wanted to let you know my thoughts are with you.

Just checking in. Having some really nice weather now - getting in some golf, some kayaking and some social events with the local ladies here. I am moving sites on Wednesday and have my last stint of 10 days and then I have to vacate the park for 2 nights - so may try the KOA or the other state park for a weekend - then I will be doing the site hopping for the last week - give me lots of practice of set up and take down with backing in and out ha ha - but I just would prefer to stay at this camp it is really clean and nice people and I am so familiar with where everything is here on the island and close to friends I have made here. So instead of living out of my ModPod I will have to treat her as camping for a week tee hee.

Dannie your pics look great of the Princess - she is coming along - before you know it she will be a jewel for sure and you will be enjoying camping in her.

YES Dannie I would love to stop in to see you. My plans have firmed up now for my travel home - I am skipping the idea of going to Philly - and I would like to see a bit of the mountains before I go home - so I am departing on the Easter Monday - Not sure if you will be home for Monday 13 & Tuesday 14th, I would plan to leave on Wednesday 15th sometime. Would that work for you if you would be so kind as to have a weary somewhat homesick snowbird???

Driving in downtown Philly with an Airstream sounds like a huge nightmare! Hell, downtown Philly itself is a nightmare

I posted 2 pics of my new bath in the Airstream. They're in my thread for those of you who want to see! It's a 54" mobile home tub. Veeeery sexy. The drain is brass to go with my antique shower, though you can't see it in those pictures. My dad took like 15 pictures of the outside and just 3 of the inside!

So the contractor thinks he can finish it in May. My apartment lease is up late July, so I am planning to move into the Airstream at the beginning of July and get things underway. I'll be staying in the city until late fall - then it's on to the open road!

Wow Brock - your baby is looking really cool and your design ideas are fab...you will have quite the little den of inequity running the roads

Now mind you she ain't LITTLE - the pic you posted compared to what I am living in right now seems like a palace - what are you going to pull her with - have you decided yet?

Where do you intend on heading out on the road???? All sounds like lots of adventure.

I will get a taste of hooking up and moving on a daily basis in a few weeks. Then I will see if I like to do it out in the big road.

I really sort of like getting where I am going and staying put for a while - I think it gets a bit much packing and unpacking all the time. But we shall see. Maybe that is why everyone goes for the bigger trailer and bigger TV the less packing you have to do I suppose with everything in its accessible place.

So I will have to get myself sorted out here with the bare necessities - so for now I am having early lunch - left over pizza ha cold out of the fridge

I was about to have a shower but they turned the water off at the camp her to do some testing ha just my luck - starkers in the shower and no water Lovely day - but the day at the beach yesterday had both me and Taz walking a bit too much so we are very stiff today - so we will sit in the sun and just read a book and pack up later to move sites in the morning - then head out to the golf course...

Hey Sharon, I'm back from my week at Kanuga and yes, we would love to have you stop and stay with us. The church next dfoor has given us permission for you to park there and you and your critters are welcome to stay in the house with us. Just call me and confirm that you are coming. If you lost my number just pm me and I'll send it. My computer passed away this past week. I have a new one but I am having a hard time getting the wireless modem to work so I have to use R.'s which means I will probably only check once a day until we can work out these glitches. Drive safe, the Princess should be close to being ready when you get here so you will get to be our first guest.

Hi Dannie - how was your R&R time - are you nice and refreshed?

My firm plans have un- firmed up tee hee...I am once again leaving later than sooner. So not totally sure if I am leaving now on the 16th or the 21st but will figure it out soon enough.

At this point all I know is that I am packing up on the 3rd and heading to Mertyle Beach for 2 nights cause this park is kicking me out on the 28 day policy - I don't mind. I am coming back for the Cajun Festival and may stay for the big Kayak/Canoe show on the weekend of the 21 - so that is sort of what is now holding up my decisions tee hee.

So off to do some groceries.

Wow this AC compressor really packs a whollop when it kicks in....I thought it was the awning in the wind but nope... was a bit stuffy and the little vent lids were taking a beating in the wind. It was laundry and extra cleaning and grooming day today.

so Dannie I will be in touch with you when I better know what my dates are - but I am planning to head your way so I would not miss the opportunity to stop by and would love to meet you and your Husband.

Where is everyone?

Well Silver Sisters... where are y'all? We are back from Texas and it is still cold here in Peterborough... cold for us that is... keeping the furnace set very low at nite to prevent freezing.. unable to find RV antifreeze. Won't be too much longer and it will be above freezing at night. Sharon, are you on your way home yet? Carol, how goes the new jobs for you and Brad? Hello to all ...

Howdy stranger!!!

I am on my second last night here Tuesday night will be my last and I am pulling out on Wednesday before noon to head to Dannies in NC for either 1 or 2 nights - I plan on being home late Friday night or the wee hours on Saturday morning. I will run straight home from NC taking my time with frequent stops.

It has been 2 weeks almost since I have posted - I was up at Myrtle beach for 5 days without internet and back here in and out of different sites because of Easter weekend and even spent some time out in the field with the Honda Generator.

I have been playing with photos and just finished making an omelet for a late dinner because Terri and I had a really late lunch at California Dreaming - a really great restaurant on the water. We are having a couple of rainy days right now but should be better by Wednesday.

Taz is doing really great and got her green light from the Vet to go home so we are just spending the last days to hold out for the warmer temps at home!!! Peter said they had 6 inches of snow the other day but with milder temps it melted as well they had rain just before you got home.

I will turn skype on if you have skype and we can chat for a bit if you want???
