- 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!

Every year my Mom does her Easter tree with plastic eggs for the Great Grand kids. They really enjoy seeing it, unfortunately I couldn't get them to stand still long enough to get their pictures! So the trees were the only pictures that I was able to get. We went to Circleville on Saturday afternoon. Mom and I fixed a ham and an old fashioned ham loaf. They were both very good, and we had that with scalloped potatoes, green beans, salad, deviled eggs, and cupcakes and ice cream pie for dessert. Mom, Mike, Kara ( our Grand daughter), my sister in law, Pearl, and her son Alex and I were the only ones there, as my brother had to work, and my Dad had left to go wild turkey hunting in Virginia after church. We had a good dinner and lots of good conversation. In about an hour after dinner my Sons, Corey and Gary, and Autumn and Tehya arrived. Then the Grand kids hunted for their Easter baskets treasure hunt style going from clue to clue until each one had found their basket. I took them upstairs, to the basement, to the garage, then back upstairs with 10 clues each, until they found their baskets. I figured if I wore them out first, that all that candy I knew they were going to get wouldn't give them such an energy boost. LOL! Unfortunately the only one who was wore out was me from following the clues to make sure that they went from clue to clue and then to the baskets! I just crashed after they went home! LOL!
Mom's Back Surgery:
My Mom will have her back surgery on May 4th. They have finally given her a date, and I am praying everything goes alright as the doctor's shave the 2 discs that are ruptured and check out a possible 3rd disc for rupture. The doctor's are hoping that this surgery will stop some of the numbness she has down her leg, and alot of the pain from the discs pressing on the nerves in her spinal column. I hope we will all be able to celebrate on May 4th. Stay posted for updates!
We came home with the rain following us and it has rained most of the day since we have been home. My wonderful arthritis has reared it's ugly head, or should I say hit my knee. I've been limping since last night and I am not enjoying it after being able to walk pretty normal since January, makes me wonder if my steroid shot has worn off. I'll have to see what happens after it quits raining, and then decide if I need to make another appointment with my orthopedic doctor for another shot.
I know I've been kind of lax about writing lately so I will try to do better in the next few days, so until we meet again...
