Good morning everyone/ Found a much better deal on a smaller boat. It's a Bass boat 17 feet with all the bells and whistles.


Boy Richard, you are a glutton for punishment! Owning both a boat AND a RV. I did the boat thing for 10 years and one of the happiest days of my life was the day the new owner pulled the boat out of my yard. Lot's of $$$ for maintenance. I am assuming that you will be using the boat in fresh water. My boat was only used in salt water and it's like using it in acid. Took so long to clean it when we got home from a trip that I got tired of it. Sounds like a REALLY good deal though. I hope you use it a bunch a catch a lot of fish. Using a boat in fresh water requires much less maintenance.

Looks like my 4th of July plans aren't going to happen. We had to make plans for Jetty Park a year in advance to be able to get reservations. I had a RV spot next to a cabin that we rented for my nephew and his young family. My nephew works hard and has a wife and two small children. They rarely get to take a vacation and we had rented them the cabin for a couple of days while we were staying at Jetty Park. My wife bought all this cute beach stuff (small beach chairs, beach toys, etc) for the kids. Jetty Park called us on Monday and said they canceled our cabin reservations. They aren't opening the cabins again until September 15th. Our RV site hasn't been canceled yet but they don't know when the campground will reopen again. I am not holding my breath. This is the 2nd trip we have had canceled due to Covid-19. We had a week vacation planned in Key West a couple of weeks ago that got canceled. I only get 3 weeks vacation so my time off is precious. I have to use a certain amount of time off before August 1st so I guess I will just take time off and get some things done around the house.

I hope everyone is doing well.

I have some good news. After being dianosed as a Type 2 diabetic and spending a week in the hospital in January (initial blood sugar over 1000), I am now off all insulin and controlling my sugar with diet. I went on the Freestyle Libre in March and find that a wonderful tool to use to help figure out what helps and what foods are trouble. I am now staying in range (under 130) the majority of time. I am using a combination of Keto, paleo, and just healthy eating. Sugar substitutes are a big no-no other than stevia or monk fruit. I find that almost every drink or yogurt has sucrolose(Splenda) in it, and it causes my blood sugar to skyrocket. It also makes me really tired. The endocrinologist told me yesterday that I had the best numbers they have seen in the last few months (95% in normal range for last week with no insulin) and no blood sugar over 200. I cook with coconut oil and lots of spices. I like cheese, veggies, and lots of berries. As side effect has been a 15% weight loss that effortlessly fell off and my energy is increasing. My own body is starting to respond to food and my goal is to put my diabetes in remission as I continue to lose weight. Initially, my doctor told me this was not possible, but after seeing my numbers, he has changed his mind. I can still eat most normal foods, just not white bread, white potatoes , or watermelon. The sensor has been a god send.

agteacher good luck on your diet. When I was first diagnosed as a type two diabetic I was on a diet. That lasted about one year before I went in insulin. Now I take as many as six shots of novolog per day. I find that fatty foods hurt me the worse. Rice, bread and anything fried will shoot my blood sugar up. II love fried fish and French fries, that's a no, no. I love milk and that also runs my blood sugar up. Good luck and hope you do well on a diet. I have learn to eat what I want and chase it with insulin.

The bas boat deal has turned into a scam. So I won't be buying a bass boat. Can afford a new one not even a used one that's in good shape. so I will learn to fish from the bank and enjoy it. Besides son Scott has a nice one that I can sit my butt in when we can get together. Sue and I will be going to Modoc next week for a few days. I really like that campground. It has a lot of great memories. It's Old Fella's stomping grounds. I still think of that old dog just like he was still with us.

I hope everyone is well and enjoying themselves. Are you staying home? Sue and I don't venture out. We stay at home. Our church us holding services outside under the pavilion. That works out okay as we can sit in open spaces and not get crowded in. it's called socialized distancing. That a new term I have learned in my old age. Oh well live has changed in the last few months, Social media has become a battle ground. Lost of angry people on there. I guess I have been guilty of spewing some venom on there. I am sorry if I have offended any of my friends on Face Book. I am trying hard not to spread angry or hurtful words on there. Sometimes I just can't help myself, sorry.

Okay I need to get off of here and find something constructive to do.

I have worked really hard. My goal has always been to get off the insulin. I have had bad reactions to the Basaglar and Levimir so really want to not have to take them. I was also taking Novolog every time I ate. I have a basic rule - non starchy veggies make up at least half the plate. Meat makes up part of the meal. I try to avoid breaded fried foods. I have found that I can fry eggs in coconut oil and add spinach, onions, cheese, and tomstoes to make an omelet that actually reduces my blood sugar. I fry foods in coconut oil, real butter, or pure olive oil. I have really only eliminated sugar and flour, so no cake or pies. I eat alot of fresh berries as desserts.

We finally got the 5er out storage Tuesday. Was able to put it on my Nieces property.
Since we moved last year we can not keep it on our property.
We spent the day cleaning it up and dewinterizing.

We both have the urge to go somewhere but we are uncertain of how safe it really is. Besides Ohio still has a travel ban on. Camp grounds are open but you have to stay on your site and no gatherings of more the 10 people.

I rode the Tail on my motorcycle about 12 years ago. I found it to be a pleasant ride, not near as challenging as the mountain roads I regularly rode back in Virginia. Speed limit is 30 mph over the entire 11 miles. Drive the speed limit and you'll have a lovely, leisurely drive, where you can wave at the nice highway patrol officers who dot the road, especially in the summer, when so many motorcyclists like to run the Tail.

If you have the time, please drive the Cherohala Skyway, too. The views up top are magnificent.

Thanks for the tips, Wanderlost. That would be just how we would take the "Tail." With the Miata, I will be shifting a lot (6 speeds), but I love it! I can take off with the wind in my hair, shifting, etc. When I look down, I'm doing 40 mph. LOL It feels like I'm FLYING! And I'm doing 40! LOLOLOL

Wanderlost that sounds great. Just might try it some day. Right now we are stuck close to home. We will make a short trip to Modoc South Carolina next week for a few days just to get out of the house. We haven't been anywhere in the camper in over a year. So it's time to stretch our wings and fly a little. Right now I am being messed with by a scammer. I am playing along until it's time for me to give money or my bank account number. Then all it stop. I have run a check on all the information provided and the names used in the scam are real people whose names have ben reversed, like using their last name as a first name and lawyers whose names have been reversed. Anyway right now it's interesting, but risky. Besides I could use $850,000.00.

Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

We made it back to Florida today, got home, got the food out of the motorhome and in the house and unloaded all of the trailer except for my organ, which I am hiring out.

It rained off/on yesterday and today. That storm in the gulf sent its outer bands over Florida and we had periods of torrential downpour on the interstate. A gal in her Mercedes hydroplaned and put the nose into the guardrail. Lot of damage. She was moving pretty fast. Fortunately, most of the others slowed down in the downpours, but kept moving, so we covered the rest of the interstate we needed in good order. We got off and ran the last 60 miles on red roads which were not heavily traveled today and got home without incident.

The house is a pit. We just unloaded boxes into the living room. Our new furniture will not be delivered till the 19th, the room WAS empty, which was good. We ordered out pizza and are looking at relaxing and sleeping well in our new bed.

Hope all is well with all of you.

Dale
