Only in America- if you make it, someone will buy it. We even have "As Seen On TV" stores to sell all this stuff.

Re-Make....

Hi John...
On our last visit 2 your wonderful land in '00, we went 2 the local flee & farmers mart at St. Cloud, There was a Guy at his stall selling all this " SEEN ON TV "...stuff, U kn, the things like left handed corkscrews...l/h can openers, and ALL sorts of things, of which afterwards the D/Ws voice still rings out...WHAT u buy that for...well u never kn when U need it...goodness kns what it is???...I've had it 2 years and still can't get it out of the box... , some kind of multitool that's realy ...LOL
It never FAILS 2 amuse me at all the NEW inventions, my mate once had an old TRIUMPH HERALD , he fitted all these gauges in, temp, oil pressure, amps, fuel, vaccum, clock and U kn what...only if U were in the car, then would U see them,
I'm sure he only fitted 'em, 'cos they LIT UP with the lights on...lol., He insisted they WERE vital 2 the reliability of the car...which was total RUBBISH...if anyone had the most UN-reliable vehicle in the world...YES it was HIM...
Well my D/W says us MEN r jus little boys in LONG trousers, as long as we keep 'em sweet...let's keep buying the stuff..
Have a good evening ...Chris.....

We just got back from a stay in a REALLY NICE small luxury resort in the mountains...they had, are you ready for this Chris...heated toilet seats! Suppose I can get one for Maxwell? It'd take the chill off those chilly nights camping in Colorado...

Uncle Booger's Bumper Dumper®
® U.S. Patent # 6125480

Sorry Chris, it is not "Only in America" this time.

This one is "Only in Texas"

The company that makes and sells these is in Houston, TX !! Man we do some of the stupidest stuff down here

My brother-in-law, a rancher/farmer has one of these stored behind the seat of his pick-up truck. Right next to his shotgun. Claims he uses the Bumper Dumper® all the time.

Looks kind of high!! If you fall off that one you'll need your wheels alligned!!! Also needs two accessories One is obvious and the other is a first aid kit....... Needs handle grips- must be optional !! Better tell the driver what you are doing or you might find yourself going down the road at 90 miles an hour blowing in the wind backwards!! [Make sure that hitch bin is locked!! One caveate 'You'll need that if you join coast to coast!!. Wife says It's an improvement over the one in our trailer!![Hates my trailer] MY 'English' wife should talk. First house we owned had 7 full bathrooms [we liked to read] and still complained......Wanted 7 maids!!! Never satisfied. Tom

Chris, you have a great trip to Florida.
It's too bad that Austin, Texas is so far away, because I would invite you to spend a night in our Airstream, so you can get a feel of what it is all about.
So, remember that, If the wind ever blows you to Texas!

Peter,

I feel a little smug. We are meeting Chris this Sunday after our rally and giving him a tour of our MH.

I am also delivering 10 chocolate Airstreams to him. I can hardly wait until Sunday.

Most of the local libraries here in the USA have internet access...time limited to about an hour though...or you could visit a local coffee house and log on there...I'll miss reading (er...trying to interpret your slang). What does lol mean by the way?

Laughing Out Loud

I thought I remembered a thread that was started a long time ago that listed a bunch of common forum acronyms...I couldn't find it though so here's a link to an acronym definition website. Might make getting through Chris's posts a little easier...then maybe not!

We met Chris and his son, Mark in a parking lot last Sunday. Chris is just as much fun in person as he is on the forum.

What a day.

Hi ALL...
Well I'm back, hope this time out of mine U Guys chance to brush up on Yr English...lol.
After the taxi taking the Girlies out to the local shopping mall, to put the credit card into MELT-DOWN mode one...lo, my son Mark & I set out to meet Edie & Brett, at K-mart, Clermont, funny how we kinda found the place, with no trouble at all...we kinda got there early, so we swopped notes of the different types of units we saw, heading away from us as we neared our meeting spot, there were 5th wheelers galore, and so many other types of A/Ss & Mh/Rvs, we could'nt take them all in, we did manage to look at a local fire truck in the carpark, and speak with the fire crew, he liked my 911 commemorative pin, sure I saw a tear in his eyes...
As we were a little early, we took some breakfast at the K-Mart cafe...after thet we went outside...and saw a huge M/H...yes it was Edie & Brett, who gave us both a huge welcome, THANKS GUYS, it was'nt long b4 we were chatting like a ladies knitting group...lol, as talking IS my prize asset...
I was amazed at the number of little cubby holes it had to stow things away...kinda reminded me of my D/Ws money purse...
which by this time must be almost EMPTY...lol...Bless her.....
Windsor was a sight 4 sore eyes, as our own PUP was at the kennels for his vacation, Puppyville I named it...missed him lots...however, Edie & Brett let us both look over their unit, and explained all about with great prideness, it was a lesson for the 5 of us...we took some fotos, ( I'll get my D/D to put some on the site...)...and said our goodbyes, as E & B still had to get back home to tampa way, a good 100 miles away...Both Mark & myself, THANK them both, very, very much for thier hospitality, and mainly for putting up with my chatting, of which I hope their EARS are better now...lmao...BIG thanks again...it was a great day for us both...and thanks for a great FORUM...
...Chris.....

In the red...

Hi all...
Did U mention RED...Hee Hee...Well I have to admit we spent a LOT of big $$$$$ between us, that's jus my D/W an I. I spent the LEAST...There MUST be a knack to spending money...guess it's a WOMENS thing...lol, well it was very enjoyable, I found myself buyin lots of silly things that I have NO real use for...I won't hold Wally World responsible for that though, Oh !!!...what a GREAT store, I actualy rode one of those 3 wheeler bikes up & down the aisle, an NO-ONE batted a eyelid, gee I sure felt YOUNG agn...lol.
We came back with some money...so I'll try an save it for a newer car...( I've bn sayin that now for 6 years )....But 2b honest...we ALL had a fab time, an it WAS worth it, and hope 2b bk in 2005...
I have LOTS of little tales 2 tell, but as they are NOT A/S or R/V related I feel it is UNFAIR 2 clog up this site with my joys of Yr beautiful land...We never realy left...we're jus vacating bk in 'lil ole England...
I was bk at WORK 2day...what a dive...Chris.....
