Oh no! I've spent too much time polishing the Airstream!

Airstreams are making us nuts!


Pass the mineral water, please, and make it quick! I can't stand any more losses!

So Long!

The interior of modern Airstream are coated so we're not exposed to bare aluminum, which I assume is the culprit.

Is that why I drool when I see an Airstream? And it is going to get worse, you say? 35 years and counting. If my posts get bad, please delete. This might be the best one to start on.

I suppose it is even more of a risk when you smash your head against aluminum. I've done that so many times crawling out from under my trailer.

Those of us doing major renovations to aluminum trailers have dementia for sure!

The most important thing to remember is that... um. I'm sure I'll remember... Nevermind. Now where did I put that Nuvite?

I am just wondering....if I am living in my Airstream (I am) what the hell do I care about remembering anything....

Just kidding....(because some folks might take offense but then I would forget anyway...)

That explains a great deal about me.

Oooooohhhhh noooooo.....I've had black boogies when I blew my nose after polishing....I'm sure my brain is oxidized....Seriously, though, they've been saying that for years! My mother suffered from Alzheimer's..lived the cleanest, healthiest lifestyle of anyone I ever knew. She did have an aluminum pot roast pan, though......

At least I think they have disproven the idea that cooking in aluminum pots is a potential hazard.

Hope so anyway - I brew up my home-brewed beer in aluminum kettles.

I suppose if the aluminum doesn't do in the brain cells though, the booze might.

Hopefully it will leave me enough cells left to be going on with for the duration!

Just read a report that alcohol improves memory in older people.

First I hear the hokey pokey isn't what it's all about when it is, and now aluminum is bad.?! Brings out my suicidal tendencies. Let's carravan to the nearest bauxite mine. I'm ready. Jim

Sensitivity classes??

I hope that part was a joke, lest we are a nation of panzies.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
