Dr. C, you need a Guinness, or two.

Dr. C., based on my diagnosis of your symptoms, I would prescribe two ounces of Walbernize Super Seal mixed into your night time toddy.....oh by the way be sure to shake it well before dispensing.

After reading this post I got so upset I went out and kicked all four tires and said
"BAD TRAILER" for doing this to me.

Yea, I talk to the leather couch all the time!

this is all in fun and from what i can see you take things much too seriously.

I would hate to know I had a doctor that was so uptight.

So where would I fit in on this......

Running a home for abused and neglected Airstreams. Maybe just a halfway house....

I have to say that my trailer is not showing gender yet, but since I'm giving it soooo much attention, it may be a girl and happy for now. We will see what happens over the next few weeks now that I'm done working till the warm weather.

Talking to the trailer beats talking to myself .

[So the closest they come to being 'alive' is that they are all prostitutes. Little whores. Providing pleasure to the privileged few while exacting a price.]

And definitely beats talking to hookers and little whores. (Are those with BIG rigs talking to big whores)? The men in the white coats probably won't be put on alert if I talk to a trailer - but if I talk to myself....

So the way I see it, the very existance of these old barges is a societal benefit of parmount importance. Would you really want to see these Airstream fanatics let loose with nothing to entertain them? Imagine the chaos that could ensue:

Roving bands of wild eyed, pop rivet gun, toting wanna-be mechanics converging on unsuspecting RV lots, malls and airport hangers.

Thousands of gallons of vulkem poured into the streets.

Excess polishing agents and tools sold at department store makeup counters to ubnsuspecting teens by overly passionate slightly aged men for lord knows what purpose.

The removal of the oval from geometry text books.

We cannot allow this plight to befall our fair nation. It is our patriotic and societal obligation to keep these renegade, Airstream lovers fully occupied for the safety and prosperity of all.

So.... if a little conversation with a curvacious lady who has spine, a sense of humor and demonstrated ability to gracefully cope with what life sends her way, is all that stands between us and the complete breakdown of society as we know it, I say: talk to your Airstreams, rub them till they glow in appreciation, annoint them with lovely baubles and georgeous tapestries and keep the world safe!

Actually it is alarming that one could own an A/S and NOT love it.
