After feeling so sore and achy after the motorhome clean-up Thursday I surprised myself upon waking this morning by not feeling all seized up like the Wizard Of Oz's Tin Man on a particularly bad rainy day.  Sunshine beamed through our living room window and I knew with a few Tylenol I would be able to finish cleaning up our Class C Winnebago Itasca Spirit.  A quick drive out to our morning walking spot for Pheebs and I and we did our half-mile trek up the country road and back.  My hip felt reasonably good with only a few tweaks.  

Home again I didn't waste any time getting at and finishing up cleaning the exterior of Scooter's cab and overhead chassis cap.  All went well.  A catch-up clean-up inside the rig took care of the kitchen and bathroom and I was done.  The rig is ready for a new home........We have not given up on future RV travels and if we reach a point in a year or two where all medical issues are out of the way and we are reasonably able to travel again, we will assess things again at that time.  Having our 2002 Class C Winnebago sit here not being used for another year or two or more is just not the right thing for us to do nor is it the right thing for a vehicle that is designed to travel and be on the road.  There are a lot of miles and life left in the little Winnebago and it just needs the right someone who has the time, energy, and RV interest to saddle her up and take her out for those long wondrous travel adventures along the highways and bi-ways of North America:))     

Al's Music Box:))  A few days ago on June 5th, Astrud Gilberto aged 83 died.  If that name rings a bell for anyone it is because she is the one who sang The Girl From Ipanema.  From the album "Getz/Gilberto".  1963

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A couple was relating their vacation experiences to a friend. "It sounds as if you had a great time in Texas," the friend observed. "But didn't you tell me you were planning to visit Colorado?"  "Well," the husband said, "we changed our plans because, uh..."  His wife cut in, "Oh, tell the truth, Fred!" He fell silent, and she continued,  "You know, it's just ridiculous. Fred simply will NOT ask for directions."


- Knock knock.  Who's there?  Lettuce.  Lettuce who?  Lettuce go on a date and make some memories together!

- Knock knock.  Who's there?  Kiss.  Kiss who?  Kiss me if I'm wrong, but dinosaurs still exist, right?

- Knock knock.  Who's there?  Boo.  Boo who?Well you don't need to cry about it!!


After a nice dinner, the two couples got up from the table. The ladies went into the kitchen and the men went into the family room.  One of them said to the other, "I think it is so wonderful how you call your wife, "honey pie" and "sweet pea", and "sugar" all the time.  The other fellow said, "Well to tell you the truth, four years ago I forget her name."



  1. I am very certain that you have chosen to do the right thing about the motorhome from my 50 years of rving experiences.

  2. I agree not to let it just sit. I hope your travel days return. I know my days are numbered, but I hate to let go.

    1. We are excited to see what happens this coming week. It was so nice to meet you both and chat 🙏
