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

I certainly am keeping you in my prayers, Richard. I pray they can get a handle on your problems and give you some relief from the symptoms. Best wishes. Dale

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

My subdivision has subdivision covenants regarding materials of construction, setbacks, outbuildings, mobile homes etc. It does not and has never had a HOA. The covenants were put in place by the subdivision developer and are part of the deed. So the existence of a HOA is not a requirement for restrictions. One of my neighbors wanted to build a smaller house than the restriction (by only a couple of hundred square feet.) They made a petition and got X number of property owners in the subdivision to sign it. I don't know what entity approved the petition, nor what number of % of homeowners had to sign it. They had to have it processed before the building permit. I'm sure laws about this sort of thing are highly variable. My advice is to talk to an attorney, and/or the codes enforcement entity. If you do have such a petition, go around to the people with the stuff in their driveways, and their neighbors, and get it signed first. That neighbor sounds like a PITA and I would not care to live across the street from her. You are correct about these covenants being instituted at times by the developer and no HOA. Same as in the subdivision where we once had property. I was told if you do something against the covenants and no one complains, you're "probably" okay. But the minute someone complains and can site the covenants, etc. . . different balllgame. And it doesn't matter how old they are. The original developer had his reasons. Dale

RE: Water and food bowls?

I use the Neater Feeder for my dog. The holder will not tip over and all water spills are contained within the holder. My son uses a larger size for his golden doodle. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DMHOZOK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Dale

RE: Prostate Cancer

I think my DH's was 5.1 and they requested a biopsy. Do the biopsy, Regardless of your PSI being suspect, the biopsy will reveal. DH had cancer in like 7 of 9 samples taken. Because of his heart condition, it was suggested by one doctor to "wait and see." That is a death sentence. A friend did that and 10 years later he had bone cancer and even after aggressive treatment at that point, he did not survive. Since my DH could not have surgery, we went to MD Anderson in Houston (we fulltimed so it wasn't inconvenient), and he had proton beam radiation treatment. At 10 years, his PSA was starting to rise by .1 every six months. They told him if it went up more, he would have to come back for scans. Sadly he died from other problems before that had to be addressed, but he did live cancer free for those 10 years after treatment. He was 60 when diagnosed. My BIL was just diagnosed via biopsy. He is going to have surgery. Dale Isn't proton beam the one where you only need one week or so of radiation rather than the 30 days? bumpy Terry had 39 treatments, once a day M-F. If you missed more than 2 days, you had to start over. Fortunately, Terry had very few if any side effects and it didn't really even slow him down. The proton beam is highly concentrated so it does not damage tissue surrounding the prostate, only the prostate. It's been ten years and the treatment could have changed in that time, I don't know. He did well with the treatments and we were grateful to have this option. Dale

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

Awesome news that a few of you have received your vaccine. Patty and I are signed up but unfortunately we are still waiting for the phone call of when we can get it. That's me!

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

Yesterday they opened up a portal on line to register for the vaccine. I'm all registered and now have to wait till they get more vaccine and give me a time/date. I was at an outdoor meeting and two people who later tested positive. Today is day 9 so I don't think I have anything to worry about. I was across from the two people, who live together and I was always more than 6 feet from them. But the troubling fact is that the one woman had suffered a fever the day before. Why in the world would you then attend a meeting knowing you had a fever the day before? People are so stupid, but then I guess that's part of why we have such a problem. She has since been taken to the hospital. No one else who was there has gotten sick or tested positive. I have a "new" dog I'm rehoming. He is a Scottish Terrier named Brendon. I have gotten quite attached to him, but he may have to go back. He was surrendered to a breeder by the daughter of the couple who had him. I guess the proper procedures weren't done and the parents are very upset. They need help themselves and have someone who comes in twice a day, so it's not likely they can really offer the proper care for the dog. He is already lacking in vet care. We shall see. He is adorable. Take care, FOOF's. Dale

RE: Need Recliner Recommendation

At one time we purchased a used Class A and found the recliner broken. We ordered a Best chair. Very similar to a Laz y Boy, but neither of us liked the lazyboy and it was much more expensive. We found Best at a local furniture store much cheaper and ordered it in a complementing fabric. Years later, we purchased a new Phaeton and swapped out the one couch for two Best recliners we ordered. We had a custom file cabinet/work station built by an Amish man to fit between them. It all fit perfectly and I just sold that coach. The chairs are 14 years old and because I made slip covers for them, they looked almost new when I sold the coach. So I know they wear well and the mechanisms last a long time. My DH is 6'2" and I am 5' and they fit us both. . . a rare find. You might check them out. Lots of choices in fabric. My last ones were microfiber and I actually found the same fabric at an upholstery shop and we recovered the dining room chair seats to match. Dale

RE: Anyone in Concord NH early this a.m.?

Bummer. Someone must have fallen asleep. Years ago, we were managing my MIL's rentals while she was in a nursing home. We lived 3.5 hours away, but visited every weekend doing stuff that needed doing and visiting my MIL. I was teaching at the time and I remember this clearly because it was MLK day and I had a rare day off from teaching. We were planning a day to ourselves. At 5:30 a.m. we got an excited call from our manager who lived in one of the duplexes. Actually, the nicest one which was on a heavily traveled county road. A worker on his way to work had fallen asleep at the wheel doing 60 mph in a 45, plowed through the front yard at an angle and hit the post between the garages of the two apartments. The two 2-car garages were in the front (thank God) and his car was imbedded in the middle. The brick facia was laying in the front seat of his car. He suffered no injuries, but it was a precarious situation because the center post between the garages was gone and the only thing holding up the structure were the garage doors which were now skewed in the openings. Believe it or not, none of the 3 vehicles in the garages had been touched, but there was danger the entire thing might collapse. My DH's first call was to his garage door installer who went into action immediately. He sent a crew to secure the garage with jackposts and to remove the garage doors. The next call was to my BIL who lived about 10 miles away. He is an architect and we asked him to oversee the cleanup operation to make sure everything was done to avoid further damage or injury. This was done and they were able to get all the vehicles out so our tenants could be to work on time. By the time we got there, it was all cleaned up. Like the incident you referenced, no personal injuries. . . only property damage, which was done in a timely manner and the duplex got a new roof which it needed and we didn't have to pay for it! Stay alert out there! Dale

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Not being able to rely on the manufacturer’s owner manual is unconscionable. Provided the correct owner's manual is in the matching vehicle. We bought a late model used truck to tow. Fortunately we had done our research on the vehicle and knew it could be towed. It didn't have an owner's manual in it. It wasn't even a year old. When we went to pick it up, it had one in it. When I asked, they told me they took the one out of the other similar truck on the lot. Dale

RE: Quarantine for Florida trip?

We had our film re-done in Tamps. We stayed at Tampa East. They removed it one day and put the new film on the next day. They did a good job removing the old film and we didn't have to repaint, but we did have to touch up. We got the touch up paint at Lazy Days. We took in the refrigerator vent panel because it had the 3 colors on it we needed to match. They computer matched it and did a very good job. Then they put the new 3-M film on it which has a lifetime warranty. The difference was amazing. I think it was Florida Applied Films that did ours. Super happy with it. Dale

RE: Carsick dog

I didn't feed her before I left and gave her dramamine about 30 minutes before we left. She did fine and had no ill effects. Thanks for all the suggestions! Dale

RE: HWH customer service phone number is a joke

After hearing your situation, I am superglad we replaced our Atwoods with the Big Foot System. I did read through their brief manual, but I also wanted to make an adjustment to the "home" position. They print the company phone number on the controller and said someone who can help answers the phone. After hours, it rings into one of their homes and they taken turns taking the calls after hours. Worked perfectly. I called and someone answered immediately. I told them what I wanted and they walked me through making the change. Best customer service ever. Sorry your experience has not been that good. Dale

RE: looking for full time campground or spot, Murfreesboro Tn

I agree with coolmom42. Another thing is that RV's require maintenance and things break, etc. What if your student was busy studying for exams and something "blows" OR malfunctions, propane runs out, etc., and they have to deal with that. When my kids went to college I didn't want them to have to worry about things like that. I wanted my kids to concentrate on their studies and do their best. Not possible if you having to empty tanks, fetch propane, troubleshoot their wifi, etc. I had one friend who found a very nice trailer court near their student's university. They bought a mobile home in there and their student found a roommate. They lived together there all four years and when she graduated, they sold the mobile home to another student. It was perfect for them. A mobile would not have the potential problems that an RV would. Dale

RE: Mattress Reccomendations

WE have bought 3 Dynasty memory foam mattresses in the last few years. I believe they have a queen short rv mattress. The first we bought from Amazon and two we bought direct from Dynasty. Not disappointed. All have been super great. Dale

RE: Sweet Potato Casserole with Sorghum

My late husband was from the south and he loved sorghum. Me not so much, but he wouldn't buy any except when we visited relatives down south. I believe he would have loved this recipe. Dale
