Twink

Hi Juel!! Glad you could join us! We have fun dreamin of Streamin around this old campfire. I'll bet that your little Twink loves the new sister! Pretty trailer. Does she have a name yet?? Did you all go and vote at the new rally poll for 2007 yet?

Congratulations Juel! What a great looking Airstream. Ready to party by spring sounds perfect. Do you have any interior pictures? What are you doing to it? Is it parked by the lake too with your Argosy?

Actually the new trailer and the Twink are male. I just refer to the big one as the 31footer right now. I've always felt as if my Argosy/Airstreams were a haven and protected me, so I just think of them as male. Not quite the feminist attitude is it? One thing I want to tell all of you. Do Not Even try to hang vinyl wall covering on the curved end caps inside your Airstream. I've been at it all day trying to cover the yellow and cracked end caps. You see I got these new "white" replace vent covers and put them in (not an easy thing). As you all know, when you get something new and pretty the rest of your living room looks like c--p. Sooooooo in a moment of insanity, I decided I could put the same vinyl wall covering I put in the Twink on those end pieces. What was I thinking?

I did start a post of bringing this trailer home. "It's Almost Time to Bring the 76 Home" You notice WheelInterested, this is a Michigan trailer from St. Joseph, Michigan.

That looks fabulous, you really found a great Airstream. To think you were so close, next time we will have to rally around you for sure! I know some of you girls tow these big Airstreams around like they were not even there. It's amazing. How did it feel?

It felt like towing the 24ft Argosy actually. I ended up towing thru St. Louis, in rush hour, in the rain. I thought it was 6:30 and it was 5:30. I was still on Raleigh, N.C. time. We had Bob's new 07 Ford to tow it with, which is a fun truck to drive. Well....it's not so much fun with Bob driving 70+. Then when he pulled into a rest area and into the "cars" side, that was interesting. He thought the "truck" side was for semi's. We looked pretty odd with about 50ft of vehicle and trailer. When Spring comes the AS will go to the lake and the Argosy will stay at home in case Bob ever stays home long enough for us to travel. Better put that log on the fire. I have lots of stories to tell.

Welcome juel! Your new-to-you AS looks great and as though it will serve you well - congratulations. Your "boys" will be surrounded with girls
I want to wish all my Silver Sisters and their families a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING. Ike and I will be enjoying TG at our son-in-law's (Mike & Mary) parents' home along with our other daughter Sarah and Ike's mother. Mike's sister and her family may be there also. ......um did I tell y'all that already? sorry if so.
Mary came up today and we will bake cookies tomorrow. She will give me some lessons as I've never gotten the knack of cutouts. My mom would make them occasionally at Christmas time but .... um... they were awful. I'd like to learn to do the special frosting techniques with all those cookie cutters I've collected. The pictures in the magazines look so beautiful and sometimes whimsical, don't you think?
You all have special talents and I can't think of a one I could share. I want one too!!! The new battle cry, "I Can Frost It!" The good news is even if they look bad they'll still taste good! Hey, are we going to have a virtual Christmas/Holiday party? If so, I can bring decorated cookies!

Guess I'd better head for the barn if I'm going to bake tomorrow .. wish me luck! nity nite, suz

yummmmmmmmmm

Go Sue! You can frost it!!! They sound wonderful! I saw a cookie cutter at the AS factory and bought it to ship to my friend, Donna, in MT. I hope she bakes some cookies with it too! I have been making peanut brittle for the holidays! I have the most wonderful recipe that my mom handed down to me. I have been teaching all of my friends to do it this week. I hope that they will hand it down to their friends and family. It is 100 times better than store bought! We even made some with cashews, walnuts and pecans! That was yummy too.

Got the new vent covers up and the vinyl wall covering on the end cap. I'm pooped! Got new pillows at Ross to replace the pink ones (not my color). Trailer is leaving Tuesday to go to the RV doctor (Wayne) to see if the frig. can be fixed or if I'm getting a new one put in. Good thing the holiday is coming. I'll be off two days and since the kids live out of state and are all working the holiday and my husband is in Tucson, I'll be taking my sister, who is blind, somewhere nice to eat. Thanksgiving just isn't the way it once was around here.

Juel that's like night and day difference, how fresh and perfect that looks. I like the rambours under the couch too, I had missed seeing those, pretty cool and the new accents are great.

I've got another log to throw on for later on. Juel tell us another of those stories you have to tell, we're all ears. I can just see your expression getting out on the car side and sizing up the lot. Here's one that will make Bob feel much better. I was driving along the interstate after dark and looking for the next rest stop when I finally saw the ramp and sign trailers only...thinking it was the truck trailer side, right, I pull in. Well I saw right away but then too late to change my course. I had pulled into a truck weigh station and was so embarrassed as I waved to the man looking at the Airstream and the ditsy woman driver.

Cookies, you gals are making me hungry. I'll be thinking about Suz, Donna and Lou baking someone happy, yes and frosting them wonderfully.

This trailer has tambour doors everywhere, and they all work, which is wonderful. Got all the vents up, got all the vinyl wall covering up, cleaned up the trailer, now I'm going to do my charts from work. The fun never ends here. It's 80 out and beautiful. Think I'll go out to the swing with the dogs and the cats and sit for just a while. I do have a picture of Bob blocking the entrance to a gas station on our way home. I kept telling him "truck stops only" but you know how men are.

Creative cookie frosting, vintage Airstream transformations, goodness, but this is a productive bunch. Juel, you are right about holidays changing as family changes and kids grow up, maybe marry, and sometimes find themselves far away. Our holidays are no longer the set-in-tradition days they used to be, but I'm finding it's not as bad as I thought when the changes first began. And I can only imagine how much your sister will enjoy your company and dinner out with you As for me and Thanksgiving, I suddenly could not bear the thought of the cooking and the left overs and my jampacked, who know's what's lurking in the back of it refrig, so I've spent the past couple of hours clearing out and toothpicking my refrigerator. Max looked in it awhile ago and declared that we've nothing left to eat. That's okay. I know it's clean and ready for the onslaught. You know, I find that the provisioning and preparation is often as much or sometimes more fun than the event, itself. Hmmmm. I think I'll go poke around in the barn in the decoration boxes to find a wreath to hangout on Gypsy. She looks like she could use a little spirit right now! ~G

Smile More talent from another silver sister

Lou (loudruff) send some lovely cards that I haven't shown you all yet, and I just love them!
A spinner card (bee), a stamped frog card, and a flip card with a kit to try at home (I think I'd better wait til I see Lou again to get some expert advice)!! Thanks for the lovely cards, you know I save them!!
