Have you checked Howard for any temporaty tatoos that say "I am available at laundrymats"?


Howard one time a couple of years ago we stopped at the COE campground at Lake Seminole in the Panhandle. We had a beautiful site right on the edge of the lake. Around 7PM I noticed that there were some very black clouds coming towards us from across the lake. I hurried and put my patio awning away but thought the window awnings would be OK. Well that storm hit and to tell you the truth I was scared, I put in the slide out and my wife and the dog set in the middle of the MH on the floor. The wind was so bad it was shaking the MH. I beleive if we weren't parked so the rear of the MH was toward the storm instead of the side that it would have turned us over. The wind was shaking the window awnings and they were making a lot of noise but they held. The water was so bad that it blew into the Refrig. vent and put the refrig out. The Power went out and was out well into the night. The next morning we drove around a l bit and there were trees down every where. I guess the Campground host had went to every RV and told the people to go to the bath house, but they failed to tell us. I am like Linda now I respect those storms.

I'm curious as to why you put the slides in during the storm...please enlighten me. And watch out for those packrats!! They can and will do massive harm to the wiring in your truck...put some fabric dryer sheets or moth balls in there!!

You are a handsome man Howard, is it that difficult to figure out why woman want to seek you out? Linda probably already knows that but is keeping it from you. :):)

Check your truck thoroughly. That little bugger pack rat might be building a nest. They just love eating sparkplug wires!
Bruce says they love German food most - Mercedes RV's and VW Campers. While at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, the pack rats seemed to be drawn to those vehicles.

Regarding the laundromat
"phenomena" - I suppose you have a very pleasant, approachable demeanor. :)


Loved the blog today. It was laugh out loud funny. Glad you are safe.


We are in site 120 and Crazy Chuck is still here, only now he is banging into our window. It's also very hot, you could have taken that with you.

See you soon!

Well, I was going to go back and fix a typo...not concerting, but concerning...was what I meant to type.

Anyway, the wind is a dangerous thing to trailers...

The weather, at times is a worrisome thing...so I think Linda is justified in being cautious...you don't live to an old age not being cautious!

Stay safe and happy travels...
