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!

First of all:
I hope everyone had a Happy 4th! Ours was pretty low key, and it rained just enough to keep us inside for the day. Which was very BORING! Nothing was on TV either, so we mostly just listened to one of the music stations on our cable. If fact the rain got heaver around 10p.m. and drove all our neighbors inside who seemed to have spent lots of money on fireworks this year! LOL! So that stopped all the booms that were going on. Dutchess our Dalmatian, has always been scared to death when the fireworks go off, and this year she didn't even hear them. I'm not so sure that is a good thing though, because that means she is totally deaf now. Deafness seems to run in Dalmatians though so I'm not surprised, either they're born deaf or they tend to go deaf at about 12 years old. Which is how old she'll be next year.

Jamie and Kara:
Jamie and Kara got back from their trip a week ago today. I spent 3 hours going through all the pictures they took from it on the 4th since we weren't doing anything anyway.

I talked to my Mom yesterday and she is doing great. She goes to see her surgeon on the 14th of this month, so I imagine he'll let her start doing more with just a few restrictions. She has been sewing alot the past few weeks and has been making quilted purses for friends and making quilt squares, so at least she can keep herself busy, which is important to her. As long as she doesn't try to ride the riding lawn mower I'll be happy because it jerks her back around alot. I know that is the first question she is going to ask the doctor, because she loves to mow grass!

Yesterday I harvested some dill and soms cilantro from my pots and put them in the dehydrator and within 2 hours I had dries herbs, pretty cool I thought! Well I guess I'd better get busy and save something for tomorrow to talk about, so until then...
