"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

More of the Same, Part 2 or 3 or?


Here it is, Saturday morning, and our third rain storm of the week.  There has been close to six inches of rain so far, for the week.  Another 2-5 inches possible with this storm.  I  really wish all of this was falling in Texas and Oklahoma, where it is needed.  Every lake, pond, swamp, whatever, is full to overflowing in our part of the World.

Sally doesn’t like it, either.  Over the past couple of years she has become frightened of thunder.  At the first distant roll, she begins to pace.  As it gets nearer, she’ll get on one lap or the other, then jump down and reverse the process.  If it gets really bad, she goes to the master bath and lays on the floor.  At the least, she has followed the instructions of all the talking weather heads.  She takes cover in a small, windowless room.

For the last two years we have considered doing the Southwest Desert area during the months of January and February. I think all this rain has convinced me that we will be making that journey next Winter.

Otherwise, not a lot of going on around home.  Was able to get in one day of house building for the week.  Friends just purchased a new travel trailer which we hoped to check out today, but think we’ll wait for better weather.  Looking forward to some great traveling adventures with them.

I hear more thunder. The satellite TV just went out. Sally’s headed for the bathroom.  Think I’ll just take another nap.......jc


  1. Must be "ESP"...I was just looking at the weather channel to see if we where in for more...since we got some last night...and there it was, coming right at you, so I got on to write you guys to see if its going to be a direct hit...and there you where a step ahead of me with your report....Take care of yourselves......maybe another trip is in order...ha...Horst

  2. My daughter got a ThunderShirt for her dog, who also doesn't like thunder and would hide in the bathroom. She says it works pretty good. Sure don't envy you guys having so much rain and Mother Nature not sharing with those in need.

  3. No rain down here just humidity--send some Florida's way. We would love to have you guys join us in the desert next year!

  4. We are thinking about purchasing a Cassita and would like some input. our email is bjgraffis@gmail.com
    We are looking at the 16 ft Liberty Deluxe.
