Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

And you're not wearing a mask.

And you can't remember the rest.

4. By the end of the night,

You have a bag full of restraining orders. ATT00029

Just Checking In


Not much going to report on this week, we did get out Friday and went to the movies.


Angela and I went and saw 021

I was not sure how I was going to like see a cartoon but in 3D it was awesome and really enjoyed it.

I tried to make a pizza like Sam does. Think I will stick with the frozen kind it doesn't look to bad but lacked a lot in the taste area.

018 019

Man if our weeks where any more exciting than this week I don’t know what I would do.

Maybe I will look in my box of funnies and post a Halloween special tomorrow .

In tell I find or do something exciting in my life have a good week.

Another Week Down


We had another non eventful week here in the Midwest. At least the weather was nice.

Monday was Angela’s birthday so we went out to eat.

008It’s located on a old farm,they are famous for there chicken served family style.

If you notice in the picture on the right you can see a little white building which is a church on the restaurant grounds.

This is the church our my daughter was married in.


Another week down and getting closer to the big prize. I have been doing some research on ways to earn money when we hit the road.

We know with the economy the way it’s heading we are going to have to find jobs here and there to make ends meet.  But that’s ok we want to keep active as long as we can.

We plan on by next spring to getting serious looking for the 5th wheel and truck. I would like to find a package deal truck and 5th wheel. Also on the wish list is to find one that has solar power and generator all set up for boon docking which is what we want to do most of the time.

24. People who forward e- mail without deleting the tons of previous recipients should be shot and then tarred and feathered.

25. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important. Ladies quit Laughing!

Camping And Our New TOAD


First we want to thank you for all the nice comments left by our RV friends on our Saturday blog for our Lady Bug.


We did have some fun this week, After learning not to go camping on the weekends, we went Wednesday and Thursday to Smithville Lake it’s a Army Corps of Engineers lake.

003 015


It was not crowed and very peaceful all the dog got lots of rest in the fresh air.

008  016


They have a nice paved trail around the camp ground so we got out for some exercise.

007We had a nice relaxing time but there was something missing.. With having a motor home we have no way to go anywhere to explore the area  outside  the camp ground.

So when we got back Friday we went looking for a TOAD and this is what we found and bought.

019  It’s a Honda Elite 110cc its big enough for both of us to ride on and be able to do some site seeing.

R.I.P. Lady Bug (2000–2011)


I usually don’t post a blog on Saturday but today is a sad day for us. We had to put our oldest dog Lady Bug to sleep today. 

This is a picture of her 2 days ago on her last camping trip,she enjoyed her self laying out in the fresh air and laying in the grass.

She has had a hard time getting up and walking for quite a while and in the last few day she didn’t want to get up hardly at all.

She will be missed as part of our pack.. 


She loved riding in our golf cart..

Not Much


We had a slow week not much going on around here.

Friday we had one of the twin grandkids over to spend the weekend it was Riley. His sister had a party to go to and didn’t want to miss it. Guess grand parents know when  there grandkids are growing up when going to a party is more important.


Someone needs to tell him he is getting to big for it..

003   006  We did go to a small fair on Saturday again not much going on there either.

Grandpa,Riley and Annie


This little piggy went to market and ended up staying and was trying to stay warm..



  Riley and Angela had to pass on the hole pig thing so we went to a bar-b-que place where you don’t have to look your meal in the eye.

011 012

It was so good I forgot to take a picture of it.  That’s it for our not so much going on weekend,

Thanks for stopping by and have a good new week.
