sOmEoNe PiNcH mE!

Is this for real? Seriously, did we wake up in a fifth wheel bedroom?

It took me a few minutes to realize I wasn’t dreaming. It took my breath away just thinking about it. So, I got up, took Bella outside to do some “business” then sat down on the sofa.  Then it dawned on me that it’s 1.1.11, the dawn of the first day…of the new year and of our life as fulltimers! And in the last few days we had trekked from Paducah, KY to Brookings, OR via Las Cruces, NM! …pretty amazing for two old folks.

Ya, we did have to grab a “cat nap” or two…

No, no, not cat NIP…although if it could have energized us we might have tried it~ 

Finally, let the real adventure to begin…

Our rig

I won’t mention that they forgot to bring the KEYS when they delivered it to us…and that we had to get a locksmith! ~Cha-ching~

We landed at Shoreline RV Park in Eureka, CA on New Year’s Eve. What a great place to launch our adventure! Today we unloaded the stuff we’ve been carrying around with us. The rest of our “priceless possessions” are in storage.


Hey, wait a minute…didn’t we have an auction? Where did all this stuff come from? We may have to downsize AGAIN! 

This is a job for Superman or Superwoman!

Nice job superpeople~


To all you crazy knuckle-heads out there making Resolutions…here are mine…

“Pay it forward”

Listen to more Elvis music

Act on God’s soft prompting

Learn to play the banjo

Laugh out loud



God’s richest blessings for all of you in 2011!
