September 5, 2005

I read the post that began with...."Went camping this weekend at a campground on the lake, had not been there for a few years. Once there I began to walk around looking at the different sites when I noticed a very old dog."

And we all were made better because of Richard and Old Fella

Good Morning Foofs! I hope everyone is doing well.

I have a couple of long motorhome trips coming up in the next few months. We are heading to New Orleans the end of October for a few days and then on the way back, staying in Navarre Beach for a couple days. It will be about a 1500 mile round trip. Then I am heading to Kentucky to pick up my Aunt to bring her back to Florida. I am bringing a high school friend of mine who has never been to Kentucky. That trip will be over 1600 miles round trip and I am doing it in 4 days. Will basically be "get up there, grab her, and come home". I will be ready for another oil change once I get done with these two trips.

The fur babies will come with us on the New Orleans trip. Monty will not be happy as he hates riding in the motorhome. I have tried so many different things and nothing really helps calming him down. Once we get designated, he is happy. The dogs won't be going to Kentucky so they will stay home with their mamma.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Looks like this hurricane is coming right down our throat. I have been out of town and now have to prepare the house. My mom is in a flood zone and my father in law live in a mobile home so I am going to have some house guests. The generator is gassed up and I have a ton of water and fuel. Isn't life fun?! The doggies even know something is going on. They are acting weird. Their 6th sense I guess.

I came over to my son's in Melbourne for a planned weekend. Now he won't let me leave. LOL I had picked up all my outside stuff, but I really didn't do anything else. It is what it is. I'm sure I will lose all my frozen stuff. I should have been more prepared, but I thought I would be back and have some time to prepare. My son was afraid if I went back home to do anything, I wouldn't be able to get back out. And I live in a manufactured house. He lives in a concrete house with a 140 mph roof that is tied to his foundation. So we will be safe. He has a generator as well. So we wait. I did think ahead and brought all my meds and all the dog's meds as well.

Be safe, Burch.

Happy National Dog Day!!! I have 5 dogs that pretty much run the place around here. I'm blessed to live on a small farm with horses and a few cats.

My "littles" travel with us as we trail ride all over the country. The 3 big dogs stay home and help my grown kids who live down the road take care of the place.

I miss Richard and his beautiful stories, always enjoyed them over my coffee.

RIAH I sure hope the cat comes home.

Happy Dog Day!!!


Thank you for the hope of the cat returning… sadly, she still has not been seen… I’m thinking an owl, red tail, coyote, fox or bear may have done her in… all of those predators are around here…. I guess we were lucky enough to have her in the family for the past 11 years… Just sad because we let her stay out instead of bringing her in at 7 pm that night because it was still light out and nice out… hindsight shows that to have been a big mistake….

I hope everyone is safe and doing well!

What a day yesterday was. We had wind gusts over 100mph. My front yard is trashed with leaves and branches from my two oak trees. I had one little leak around my skylight in my kitchen but other than that, no damage from hurricane Ian. There is a mobile home park down the street and parts of it look like a war zone. My father in law lives there and his place was spared but his neighbors place lost the roof. The clubhouse roof got peeled off and is laying in the road. Lots of poor people are displaced right now. I have lived in Florida all my life and this was the worst storm we have gone through.

Glad you are OK and have minimal damage.

My parents had a trailer and site in Ft. Myers Beach in an RV park that was adjacent to the causeway to Sanibel. They sold it after my dad passed in 1985.
Pictures of that causeway make me think that the whole park would have been under water and destroyed by wind and storm surge.

Glad you made it through relatively unscathed. We know how it feels, after having gone through Michael, here, 4 years ago. My heart goes out to all those folks who are suffering right now.

Glad you made it through with minimal damage, Burch. I had come over to my son's in Melbourne for the weekend and he wouldn't let me leave! LOL He lives in a concrete house, etc., so we rode it out here. Lots of wind, very strong at times, but I'm sure it wasn't 100 mph. My place in Polk City actually faired nicely. The door on my water heater compartment had the siding blown in, but it was all there. A downspout is laying on the ground next to my RV port. My landscaper was over yesterday and got everything back in order. There were a couple ports that sustained damage, but the manufactured houses all made it through. I was amazed at that. I am headed back home this morning. Our water and power was off for 12 hours, so everything should be good. We didn't lose anything here in Melbourne.

Stay safe everyone.

Dale
