A Stick with a Rubber on it - tip that is not touching that one with a 10" pole

Sorry gals - just a byproduct of life and my terrible humour and a frisky walk or is that a brisk walk.....

Hi Sharon,

Would you believe I've got one of those 'sticks' too!..Steve made one for himself and me when we go just walking in our own neighborhood..sometimes there are 'wild' coyotes, or loose dogs on the prowl and I like that little bit of 'buffer zone' between them and me!..any we did put one of those chair leg rubber tips on the ends..but they get worn fast!

Sharon, read back over your post 1139 where you are enumerating all the different uses for your unique walking stick. Do you see what I see? In that single post,you have written a charming "nature" childrens' picture book with very simple text and rich imagery. I hope you follow up on this with a "nature" book or children's publisher. My little ones would have loved turning the pages and seeing the next way your walking stick was used. I really think you should. ~G

Walking sticks help stabilize when hiking on narrow trails with a backpack 40 + lbs full of gear and squirming kid! Yes Sharon, you have a great talent writing as Georgia mentioned hope your book project gets published!

Well thanks for the kind words about my writing - I just have a silly imagination sometimes. and far too much time on my hands.....

I still have my music to finish to some final satisfaction - still waiting on my new computer. The new software has arrived several weeks ago but not much good without the computer It has been on back order and looks like I may be lucky if I get it before Xmas - but more likely to arrive after the holidays at this rate. I would like to try and finish that chapter so to speak - before I move onto my children's book ideas. Perhaps I will share, later a really short story outline with you ladies to see what you think

I actually have a full 5 episode series lined up in my head - along with another very unique series of adventure/romance - not sure if this serious would be for kiddies or adults - I am thinking maybe both possibly and write two separate series.

Anyway - lots of ideas and lots of time to do it - so life is good...

Wow - if we have not had enough snow by now - they are now calling for another 14 inches to fall between now and tomorrow evening

~G I will have to include most definitely a few "winter wonderland" scenes or chapters in my books


Had company tonight for dinner - had no decorations up yet so the little Palm tree

was set up quickly along with a couple of tree ornaments that I have out all year round... This one I just bought the other day - as a reminder of NOT being able to be a snowbird this year tee hee...

Paula is sculpting (and I love the little duck especially) and Sharon is writing, and bottling wine, I know Steph must be cooking wonderful new recipes. This is like a creative woman's guild. I love seeing the pictures and hearing all.

Now the snow hasn't started here yet but I am hoping to see some white again. If it does ever accumulate here we may just take our sleds to a hill.

We have never walked with a stick but we have two that a friend gave us. One of the reasons I don't carry a tripod though is because I trip myself when I try. But now that I know they are good for holding critters at bay it sounds like a good idea. Neat waterfall trail picture Steph, 40 pound backpacks, oh my!!! I have trouble just lifting my back end up off the chair!

Laura how's the elbow?

G are you home or have you gone south already?

....speaking of snow.......

What a dumping we got on the weekend after two weeks of snow almost every day Sunday was a killer!!!

The Overlander partially cleared needed a break- and have to still shovel around the sides so that we can get a ladder in and then get the other side of the snow off.

Insurance will cover it all but what a rotten time of the year to have the entire contents of our workshop having to be moved and new construction to be started in the middle of winter.

We are hoping to get a new RV/Car garage built by the summer.

This is sunday morning from bedroom window

We have not had snow like this in 6 years!!! And we are expecting rain next and then more snow....

But it is pretty!!!

A Big Warm Welcome to you Jane!!!

Did you bring a straw with you - no Airstream needed during the winter

So tell us all about what you are looking for in your First Airstream???

And if you have any questions whatsoever just fire them out - I am sure between us all here we can help you in some way....

PS would you like to do a house exchange right about now - I see you are a Texas Gal - need a bit of snow???

Thanks

Thank you! I am looking for am AS that is 19--22 feet -- light as possible and i would love to see it before i buy it so someting close by Houston would be great also.....Houston is warm..we could use some snow but the fools here would all run of the road. It was 82 last week and we had a blast of cold air that lasted 15 minutes. it was thrilling.

please keep an eye and ear out for me... and just give me advice --- i hardly know enough to even ask the right questions...
But i love the idea of silver sisters and sharing growth and life experences that to me is what this is allll about. Count me in ---
Jane

Well you are in a great spot to find the nice and dry Vintage Units - they are the lightest....

The new sport models are light but they have some pay load maximum weight issues - can't seem to carry too much before she reaches maximum.

We are fixing up a little 1963 19' Globe Trotter

Here is the thread that we are posting to with her progress:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f135...bug-30272.html

There are inspectors that can help you - they are from this forum there is a list compiled but I will have to go and find it - tomorrow though I am about to leave the campfire - am exhausted from clearing all that snow today

Welcome Jane!

We have a nice cozy campfire here! All are welcome! We know that you can tow anything that your tv can pull. The silver sisters here have lots of different kinds of ASs that are nice and some that are pretty good sized ones. You may have to read a bunch of posts, but you will get lots of good advice and you will see many very beautiful ones that our Silver Sisters have.
Lou

Hi Jane welcome! I hope you find all the information you need to move ahead into your Airstream. This is a great forum, glad you are here and a terrific thread to have fun and learn and share with your sisters. It's a good bunch of ladies and all fun loving and adventurous.

Hey Lou may I have one of those pretzel rods you have in the Argosy? I hate to send you running back in the cold but I will grab you a mug of spiced cider and have it waiting for you. Thank you.

Sharon you aren't stoking the fire with that walking stick of yours are you? tee hee Just kidding, I know you found that stir stick on your hike before the snow fell. We will just have to open that MEGA bottle of red on your counter and toast to a generous insurance inspector to come your way. Oh dear, you did have a bad streak of events. I am so sorry about the collapse of your garage. If I hadn't seen your pictures I would not have dreamt of the impact and all that heavy snow. You are a hardy one getting out there and shoveling and now to have to move all those contents. But for now, tonight at the fire take some time to rest and sit a spell.

Hi Jane - here is the link to the Volunteer inspector thread.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f48/...tor-22956.html

As well thought this thread might be an interesting read for you as well
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f368...ers-19484.html



BRRR bit chilly here this morning 18F anyone have a few logs that are not buried under 3 feet of snow???

Snow has that late January crusty sound to it and it really smelsl like the dead of winter already - any real winter people out there - will know that smell and the sound to as you hear nothing then cabin fever starts to set in .......oh my and we are only a week away from Christmas... How did that happen....

All the outdoor Christmas decorations are in the Garage - guess they will be hauled away this morning.

Best get cracking - still have to shovel a path for the workers, put the coffee on and get a bit presentable - have overnight "hat head" as it is called

Sure could use some nice hot Quaker Oat cereal this morning

Wonder if they make hats with built in ear muffs

Carol - that sure would be nice to get an extra bit of padding to that silver lining LadyBug sure would apprciate it.

My Stick and fire - a real bad combination - nope she has never poked a fire before...

The Merlot is a nicer batch than the summer time - and the Zinfendel is aging nicely - another week and she will be great too. Unless we can borrow Marvin and Annies Ager?

Gee Annie and Marvin I sure wish we were jocking on our garage. I know it is not much of a garage but it was more permanent than temporary. Of course it served more of a big workshop than a garage too that makes it more of a huge inconvenience than anything else - we are in and out of there doing this and that almost every other day. Even toughing out the winter in there on various projects.

Today will be quoting day and see what the new permanent garage will cost us and building permit process and the works...Thank Goodness we don't need any Minor Variances where we are thinking of putting it - there is lots of room. Just lots of bad trees and more breaker run to bring in. Hope the trucks still run. And lots of workers who will tough out the winter that we have going on here right now
