This the story of our journey, Into Something Good, going Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and trying to Hold Onto Our Dreams. How we got on the way to becoming HALF time RVers! Our Ford 350 super duty diesel truck is our horses, we call it the Beast . Our 2008 34'7" 3 slide Cedar Creek Silverback fifth wheel is our Prairie Schooner Wagon,we call it the Bear. Just like the first RVers, the Pioneers of Yesteryear traveling around the country searching for a rich full filling life! Come along with us for the ride and read about our triumphs and mishaps along the way! About to be Part time RVers in a Cedar Creek Silverback 2008, 34'7", 3 slide 5th wheel, which is our Prairie Schooner Wagon, and a 2006 Ford 350 super duty 1 ton diesel truck is our horses, or oxen, only we have to feed it diesel instead of grass, and oats, which costs a lot more! Retired Air Force empty nesters off to see the good ole USA! Favorite Quote: "Life is a Blank Canvas, Made For Me to Add the Colors" Goal: I am trying to add as many colors as I can to my life!

Hello Home:
Boy is it good to be home! It's great to have internet, and be able to be with the birds and my dog again! I sure missed all 3 of them! I now know that I can't even stay 2 days at Mike's Mom's house unless I get allergy shots for my cat allergy. I came home with red, itchy, watery, swollen eyes, and a nose that won't quit running! Man I hope I can get this out of my system soon! This is the worst reaction that I have had after being around a cat. Here at home all we have is snow, but down at my Mom's we had ice over everything and then snow over that. I took some pics of all the ice on the trees and the sun shining on them. It made it look like the trees were covered with diamonds! Really treacherous, but really pretty! I hope to be able to post them tomorrow if my eyes quit watering so bad. Thank goodness we stopped at Walmart on the way home and Mike ran in and got me some Benedryl! It is helping a little bit and I'm going to jump in the shower and wash my hair in a little bit and see if that helps. Maybe I still have some allergens in my hair, I don't know, but I'm going to wash it again and see if it helps.

Mom is doing alot better now, and I hope she continues to improve. We worked on a quilt while we were shut in. It was fun and we cut up old flanel shirts just like they did years ago, only we didn't sew it by hand! We used sewing machines instead, we didn't want the total yesteryear experience! LOL! It was much faster than using a needle and thread and doing it by hand! We didn't have weeks to finish it either. Well I have got to get my hair washed, so I'm going to sign off, wish me luck...

My Poppy came down and got me at Mike's Mom's house yesterday in between storms. We now have about a 1/2 inch of ice on everything, and now it is snowing on top of that. We are supposed to get at least another 3 inches of snow. This dial up isn't working very well, and I can't type in color or fix mistakes, so I appoligize in advance if I make mistakes. On dial up the correct posting page does not come up. It took me an hour just to conect to the internet,and I almost gave up! As it is it takes about a minute for what I type to show up on the screen. It may be the layers of ice on the phone lines causing the problem. We are under a Level 2 weather emergency, which means if you don't have to don't be out on the roads. The Grandkids haven't had school for 2 days because of this storm. Our power has flickered several times her in Circleville, but we still have power when alot of other people don't. It looks very pretty outside, but I would never contemplate going out in it. I'm sorry this is short, but with the way the weather is and the difficulties with the dial up I'm going to close, so ya'll stay warm, safe, and healthy and I hope I can get better results on here tomorrow, so until then...
