RV Satellite Replacement

My old Winegard MV-3500 satellite has finally bit the dust. It was installed in 2005. I'm thinking of getting a G3 which handles two TVs and good for Directv and Dish. My question to all you folks is should I have it installed on my roof where the old one is or should I just use it as a carry out. Anyone ever have one stolen when it was sitting out??

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Has anyone heard from Richard? How is he doing? I miss his daily posts.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I check for this thread every morning over my coffee. I sure miss Richard's beautiful writing and always reminding me to tell someone I love them and pet my dog. We have a trip planned Labor Day weekend headed to Bryce Canyon. I almost wish our campground would cancel our reservations, or the people we are going with would want to stay home. I was already concerned about the drive out there (I hate heights) before they closed hwy 70. Does anyone know how hwy 50 is? I can only imagine between the mountains and traffic, I don't know which scares me more. Any information appreciated. Hopefully by the time you're coming out this way all these thunder storms and flash floods will be history. It has been brutal. As far as the route to take coming out here you can check out the best and safest routes by using the Mountain Directory West for truckers, RV and motorhome drivers. It shows the hills on all major rodes

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I have talked to Richard several times over the last few days. He has had more strokes, up to 5 now. He just got out of the hospital from the last one about 5 days ago. His sight continues to deteriorate, walking is more difficult and has some memory problems. He also has issues with staying awake, sleeping 12 or more hours a day. All things considered, his attitude is great and keeps trusting in God. He asks about the Old Fella Thread but his laptop computer has died, so between that and vision problems he cannot get on it. He is wearing a heart monitor to try and detect what might be causing the strokes. He misses everyone and asks we just keep praying for him. Charles Charles, have you talked to Richard since this last post?

Shadow57, We haven't been there but I did google the Campground and they have over 1100 reviews with a 4.3 average, that's pretty good. Hope you have reservations, it has been really busy at all the Parks this year.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I usually walk in the evenings just before dark with a pocket full of milk bones. The dogs in my neighborhood usually spot me about 1/2 block away. Some start barking while others just get really excited. I have one that comes up to me and just rubs up against me, her name is Maggie and she is a Golden Retriever. Such a sweet heart as she sits for her treat. What is sad is she is 13 years old and has cancer in her blood vessels and a big growth on her back just in front of her tail. There is nothing they can do for her since she would not survive being sedated. When she sees me coming she breaks into a pretty good run. My other close buddy is Struts a bird dog, he will start barking and howling when he sees me a block away. Such a character, he always demands 2 treats unless I miss a day then it's three. Got a Chocolate Lab who runs up to me then she sits and holds out her paw for a shake and her treat. Then there is Peaches, a little mix who runs really fast to me for her treat and ear rubs. There use to be an old Horse in the field that would come up to me and give me a nudge for his carrot, then he would put his head down and sniff my dog while Rocky sniffed him back. We lost him a few months ago due to old age. I actually contribute what I do to this website, I have followed from day one. I have some pictures of Maggie and the old Horse but can't figure out how to post from my phone to here. Next time I'm around my Grand daughter I'll get her to show me how. I've got a few stories I'll post later on rescuing some dogs in Yuma, AZ during our Winter trips.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Thanks for the update on Richard. So sorry to hear that he is having so many strokes.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I went back to the beginning of Old Fella and read several pages up to the time Richard took the Old Fella in at his home. I saw a few posts that talked about a movie/book on the story up to that time. Wonder why it has never happened? It could be a great movie/book. Anyone know of someone who might be interested in this true story enough to either write a book or make a movie. Years ago I sent an email to Ellen about Old Fella, but never got a response.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Yes, in honor of Richard and Old Fella we must keep this thread going and active. So last August we Lost our Cookie Monster (Shih Tzu) to old age and still have our Rocky Road (Shih Tzu) who is two years younger then Cookie (16). Every once in a while he will sit in the living room and stare at the front door like he's waiting for her to come home. I feel so sad for him as he was just a few months old when we got him and Cookie took him in like he was her baby. They never spent a night apart and snuggled up on our bed together. Sometimes I am tempted to get another Shih Tzu just to try to make him happy. This thread has made me a more patient person with animals, especially Dogs. The stories on here would truly make a great Movie. Someway, somehow we have got to find someone to do just that, The Story Of Old Fella.

Good to hear that Pickles is doing good. I can't believe that this Old Fella thread is coming up on 16 years.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

It's Richards birthday today, so happiest of Birthdays to you Richard. I remember when he and Fella started this Blog and have followed since it started. I only have one regret in the years of following The Old Fella Story and that is not meeting Richard in person.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Well it snowed in Saint George, Utah this morning and my kids said the sun was out up in Salt City area. Weird weather. But it didn't stick to the ground. Later the sun came out so me and Rocky went on our afternoon walk and gave out several treats to the other fur kids in our neighborhood. I know most of the dogs by name but not to good at recalling their folks names. Hi Richard, wishing good health.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We both got our 2nd Pfizer shots last month and actually ate out last night at IHOP. This was our first meal out since this pandemic started. Our last trip in the MH was back in mid September to a wedding in Torrey, Utah on a friends beautiful country property with full hook ups. Now that we are shot up I would love to travel. Just waiting for the weather to get back to the 70's. Looking out the window beside my desk I can see my MH begging me to get "On the Road Again". You all take care and stay safe. My little Rocky Road says hi to all the other fur kids. Keeping Richard in my prayers.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Well said. My wife and I are scheduled for our 2nd Pfizer shot next week. Then later we'll be singing the old song "On The Road Again"

Me and Angie got our first shots last Friday. Our second shot will be around the 14th of Feb. That will be our Happy Valentines day gift.

Okay FOOFs where is everyone, it's been a week since anyone has posted. I'm praying that Richard is okay. Anyone heard from him? I haven't seen him on face book for a while either.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Has anyone heard from Richard lately? He hasn't posted in awhile. I hope he is OK. He is posting on Facebook so I'm sure he is ok.

Good Morning Merry Christmas to all you FOOFs, it's clear blue skies here in Saint George, Utah. A cool 25 right now but heading for 52

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I really wish I had met you in person. Your posts over these many years have not only encouraged me to be more attentive to stray pets it has also done the same for many more. Sending prayers and best wishes for feeling better. God Bless you Richard
