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!!"

How Does This Happen


I ordered a bark collar from Amazon on July 17 with free shipping. If you read the tracking details from the bottom up how does it start out in Kentucky and go to New Jersey when we are in Missouri?

Today is July 28 and still no package. Is this a human or computer  error? This is the second time this year this has happened to me.

So much for free shipping…

The RVers Prayer

Heavenly Father, look down on us your humble, obedient tourist servants, who are
doomed to travel this earth, taking photographs, sending postcards, and buying
We beseech you, O Lord, to see that our campsite is ready for us when we arrive, and
that there is space available for us whether we have made a reservation or not. Give us
this day divine guidance in our driving. We pray that every site we receive shall be a
pull-thru, with perfect internet connections and shade. But no trees, as they interfere
with our satellite reception.
Lead us to good, inexpensive restaurants, where the wine and a show are included in the
price of the meal. Make the natives love us for what we are and not for what we can
contribute to their worldly goods. Grant us the strength to visit the museums, shows,
activities, and numerous buffets. And if we should skip a “must see” item, like Shoji’s
bathrooms, to take a nap after lunch, have mercy on us for our flesh is weak.
Dear God, protect our wives from bargains they don’t need or can’t afford. Lead them
not into temptation for they know not what they do. Almighty Father, keep our
husbands from looking at all the dancers and comparing them to us. Save them from
making fools of themselves on stage, and please protect us from sitting in the front row.
Above all, please do not forgive them their trespasses, for they know exactly what they
And when our travels are over, grant us the favour of finding someone who will look at
our holiday photos and listen to our stories for hours on end, so that our lives as tourists
will not have been in vain.

Raise Your Hand


We have been busy working on getting things ready for our September depart. My last day of work here will be August 29.

Raise your hand if you dislike those day and night shades. I have restrung 3 0r 4 and hated it.

So I took them down and bought some Bamboo Levolor Shades. The old night and day were so dusty and a pain to put up and down.

I think these even make the room look bigger and brighter. What do you think?

Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones
are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,



Then You Are Probably

The Family Dog!



And you thought I was going to get all spiritual ...

Handle every Stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or play with it,

Pee on it and walk away
