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!

Hi There:
I figured I'd better check in or put this blog out of it's misery! I don't know what to do about it. We haven't been anywhere for such a long time and I don't know if we will be going anywhere. Everything is so darn expensive! So here we sit just spinning our wheels, and not going anywhere. What do we want to do, well that's easy go somewhere, anywhere! I feel like it's so repetitive to just write about what we're doing at home everyday. On the other hand I don't want to be a quitter and give up this blog, so what do I do?

My Mom is doing great! The doctor is letting her lift up to 15 pounds now and said she is his star patient, of the 3 surgeries he did that day. So she is able to do most of the things she did before.

Grand Girls:
We had a sleepover on Monday evening and then spent most of the day Tuesday together. We did the prerequisite lunch at McDonald's and 2 hour playtime on the playground there. Man, I almost lost my mind! LOL! Then we were off to the library to check out some books for them. After an hour there I did what any self respecting Grandparent would do, I dropped the 3 of them off at home to their parents and then I went home and collapsed! No, seriously we had a great time, and they are already planning another sleepover! I'll let ya know if and when I'm up to it! LOL!

Doctor Appointments:
I have a couple of doctor appointments coming up soon, see I told ya there isn't much happening around here. I may have to have my other knee replaced, but I'm trying to wait until I just can't stand the pain anymore.

Our tomato plants that we put in pots are really doing great and starting to produce tomatoes. We've had such a cool summer this year that they just need some really warm nights to really ripen good. I can't wait to get a big enough tomato to make a good tomato sandwich.

Farm Town Facebook:
I have been spending time on Farm Town and Farmville on Facebook. I have made about 34,000 dollars and am on level 7, just a newbie really, but I'm trying. I don't understand much on there yet though. Well Time to get busy so I'll see ya's maybe on Farm Town.
