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!!"

More Shopping


Boy these slow weeks around here are getting costly.

Even thought the weather has not been to bad this winter, seems like all we have gotten done is spend money on the fifth wheel. And we are not done yet!!

The 5er didn't have a dinning table when we bought it, so a trip to Nebraska Furniture Mart to find one. And this is what we (she) came up with.  






Then we needed a table to fit between the lazy boys. I found this at Camping World. 



It will come in handy for guest  as a coffee table.


Even though the finish color is not the same on them it will work for us.

We are starting to get things ready and put them on Craigslist. So many things to do to change  our lifestyle.

My home was broken into last night by two robbers who locked me in the bathroom then proceeded to round up all they could carry.

My watchdog ‘Killer’ did not alert me at all. For this reason
I am giving him away. I no longer want this dog.
I’ve decided to install an electric fence and detection devices with alarms.

They're cheaper to maintain and definitely more reliable.
‘Killer’ is fun to hang out with, but otherwise pretty useless.
”A recent photo of ‘Killer’ is included below.”





‘Killer’ is a Norwegian Beer Hound. He is 100% purebred.

What is Celibacy?

Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by circumstances.

While attending a Marriage Weekend, Frank and his wife Ann listened to the instructor declare, It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.

He then addressed the men. Can you name and describe your wife's favorite flower?

Frank leaned over, touched Ann’s arm gently, and whispered, “Gold Medal-All-Purpose, isn't it?”

And thus began Frank's life of celibacy...

I want all the toys in my RV


It’s been another quite week here in the Midwest. The weather has been so nice for our January we had a few cold days with a light snow and then it warms back up right now as I write this it’s 58 deg. I just hope spring does not come in June and snow in April or May.

Angela and I did take in a movie on Friday we saw Adventure of Tin Tin 3D. It was a good movie,we love the 3D movies they looks so real.

We can’t hardly wait to get the house sold and out of it. I have been reading so many blogs and web site’s on different things people have bought for there rigs like internet and cell booster’s,satellite TV dish to this and that there are so many thing I want to get before we leave I’m not sure where to start or where to stop.

I start thinking we are going to leave here debt free  but broke. I know if we don’t win the lottery we will have to workamp here and there to make it. That’s ok at least it will be on our schedule and place we want to be.

Why Parents Drink

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an
Envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to 'Dad.'
With the worst premonition he opened the envelope

With trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad:
It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.
I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.
But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it' s not only the passion...Dad she's pregnant.
Stacy said that we will be very happy.
She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.
Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone.
We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.
In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so

Stacy can get better. She deserves it.
Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself.
Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can

Get to know your grandchildren.
Love, Your Son John

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house.
I Just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a Report card That's in my center desk drawer.
I love you.
Call me when it's safe to come home

Getting Ready To Fulltime


The weather here this week has been in the 50’s and 60’s not to bad for January here in the Midwest.

Didn’t get  much done around the house like the painting and things but spent as much time outside as we could.

Saturday I bought a shelf to try and organize the front basement of the 5th wheel, there is just to much wasted space trying to pile things on top of each other. 




We have started loading the things we are going to need.  



I found this RV parts distributing company that has a local warehouse here in KC. I sent in a request for a catalog on Monday and received it Thursday from UPS. The catalog has about 300 pages and they seem to have pretty good prices.

You can check them out at 




With the weather being so nice we are getting anxious to start our new adventure and hoping the house sells quick and the Tioga.

We now know what everybody talks about getting ready to fulltime this is a lot of work and planning.

If My Body Was a Car!

This is just too funny - scary how true it is!!!

If my body was a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull...

But that's not the worst of it.
My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close
My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.
My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.
It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
But here's the worst of it,




Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter,

either my radiator leaks or My Exhaust Backfires!

New Year’s Wishes


This has been quite a year for Angela and I. First we bought the Tioga motor home thinking we needed something cheap to camp in till we got closer and found a rig that we would like to live fulltime in.

Then my mom passed away in July and in October Lady Bug our oldest dog passed.

At the end of October the highlight  of our year was when we found the 5th wheel and truck we were looking for in Phoenix,AZ and I flew down and drove it home.

At that time we moved up our plan to get the house ready to sell this spring and see where that puts us and at least move into the 5th wheel.

We want to thank everyone that reads  and follows this blog. We hope that everyone has a Healthy and Happy New Year..


New Year's Wishes

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-entomologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.

May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.

May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table, together with your beloved family and cherished friends. May you find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do
that night.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them. May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner, may the commercials on TV not be louder than the program you have been watching, and may your check book and your budget balance - and include generous amounts for charity.

May you remember to say "I love you" at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.

And may we live in a world at peace and with the awareness of God's love in every sunset, every flower's unfolding petals, every baby's smile, every lover's kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.
