Golly, old LP's.....my collection includes a few Lasar discs, the size of an LP. Wild sound and video for its day. And for some, they still sound great.

Maybe I will look to see if any of the albums have pink flamingos on them....

Canada, for me, Toranna and surrounding area...one of the fascinating things....Google the Big Chute Marine Railroad...

I visited Ottawa for meetings with the Canadian military. It is a beautiful city, it reminded me of Parts of London. Now that we have an AS we want to make the long trek next year...

The Big Chute is amazing, but you're not doing that with your Land Yacht....are you?

It is, especially in Spring when a zillion tulips are in bloom. The Dutch gave Ottawa these tulips in appreciation of the Canadian liberation of the Netherlands during WW2.

The story is better than that FaN. The Dutch royal family fled to Canada when the Nazis invaded. The Queen was pregnant and by Dutch law a ruling monarch must be born on Dutch soil to qualify for the job. The Canadian parliament declared a wing of the hospital to be Dutch territory so that the child, who eventually became Queen Juliana, met the necessary criteria to become Queen.

Gh, I read somewhere that they also put Dutch soil under the delivery bed.
Many Dutch came to the Fraser Valley after the war. They started dairy farms and plant/flower nurseries. You used to see quite a few of them tromping around in their wooden shoes.

On another note, I am more than satisfied and grateful for my trailer.....but there's one thing it doesn't have.....that I wish it did: That kewl porthole window on the loo door.

So, decided to make my own by sticking a subtle sky image onto this metal charger plate.

Cost: $1 and change.

Window "dressing"

After fitting a piece of tissue paper, colored, design or whatever floats your boat, to the shape of a window, I have sprayed hair spray on the glass, then pressed the tissue paper on. When you want to remove it, a bit of soap and water does it quite easily, even after as long as four years.

However, as to bathroom doors, I have removed the one on my Serenity, and will be replacing this with curtains made from the Airstream curtain material I have about four yards of....matches everything in my Serenity.

I found myself constantly bumping into the door, rarely closed it, and if someone needs privacy, the foldette door across each end of the hall will provide, along with my new curtain "door."

Thank-you, Photobum and Annie.

Msmo, I'm going to try your window dressing trick.

I've crunched my hip on the bathroom door a couple of times too. I like the idea of the curtain door. Thanks for sharing.

We installed a privacy curtain for the bathroom sink and toilet on the street side so we did not need to use the forward pocket door.

"Bumped" for "Roll-on."
