Mel I didn't want to name it "uncle Barry" because his head is already big enough. If it got any bigger he'd never fit into his hat. And then there is the "Shinier" thing.
the FC will be at TCT if it is ready, but I'm not promising. I don't want to rush it, and it is supposed to be a hobby.

Good point. We have enough trouble keeping him in line as it is!

HEY - I resemble those remarks......

Mel,

the problem is that Lee's trailer as found dirty and needing a real home was already shinier than mine after four hard years of work on my part. His has the deluxe interior, neat things like the front gaucho seats are little hide-a-beds and they have springs in them. He has real mattresses and the list goes on. But it's the shiny thing. I find the guy a nice trailer, we use my truck to tow it to his place, and then he has the gall to wash it and it's embarrassingly way shinier than mine. Hmmmmm, I'm thinking it would be kind of him to leave it at home this year (and next would be even better)

Barry

You see, that's why I can't reveal the location of the Clipper. You'd take it home and rehab it, and it would be beautiful, and then I'd just get all bitter because it was cooler than any of the toys we have.

Nothing could be cooler than your trailers Mel. Especially the one with the blow up doll - oops, I mean blow up flamingo that leaks down overnight.

Just think, that Clipper would have such a loving, caring home, albeit Donna would kill me, but then I wouldn't have to feel bad that everyone Else's trailers are shinier than mine...

You just get back to working on that new house. You do not need any distractions at this time. Your puppies need a nice new home to live in.

If their "did happen" to be a homeless Clipper in the PNW, and I say If as no one is actually admitting to it, I think I should have first dibs. After all, it, like everything else, will be shinier than what I have now. Even Lee's 1952 trailer license plate is shinier than my trailer and I found that for him to.

Of course you're right Barry. I need to keep my head down and get these plans done. After a year of me and 2 Labs living in the Tradewind, I'll probably not be in too much of a hurry to track down homeless trailers.

Whew. Glad I could help Cameron. I know how it happens. You see one, or hear of one, and the heart gets beating fast and the fingers twitch and you just want to zip out and find it and adopt it.

Sadly, there are others who won't share locations, asking price, you know, all the good things. Instead they want to add it to their own already burgeoning herd.

Oh well, get that house done and then you can take the pups and the Tradewind (which is probably shinier than my FC) and go camping and who knows, you might just find that Clipper out there yet.

Barry
