We are now relaxing in our new home. The new home being a different RV site. We are in rural Florida. We have horses and cows just across the barbed Wire fence. The closest town is Wildwood, a very small community with a main street which is US 301.

It closes down around five PM. WE are near I-75 though, if we want anything to eat in the evening.

Many folks don’t know that Florida is a big Equestrian State. That word sorta turns me off. I like the word HORSE! I don’t care for Polo or the fancy horse challenges. I realize it takes a lot of training and practice to do all that stuff, but I am stuck back in Cowboy times and stories. Although I see some beautiful horses here. It doesn’t rate in the top ten though, I actually thought it did, seeing that Ocala boasts itself as the Horse capitol .

There are also some huge cow herds in rural Florida, but they are not in the top ten states with beef either, TEXAS is tops in cows. I guess Kentucky is tops in horses.
Florida does have some springs though. When I think of springs, I see a little clean dugout with a gourd hanging beside it. Here springs put out millions of gallons a day. Silver Springs is one example, 550 million gallons of crystal clear water a day. It immediately forms the Crystal River. These were some of the first ‘Glass Bottom Boats.
(For an idea of how big the springs are, these boats are sitting in the actual spring)
I say a lot about living in this motor home & I like it. But like your home there is always something going wrong. I spent an evening taking our commode apart to replace the gaskets that allows it to hold water in the bowl. RV toilets do not have the standard ‘trap’ that your home commode does; it drops the waste directly into a tank. That way we use less water with each flush. Our flusher is a foot lever instead of the tank handle. We have been doing this so long every once in awhile in Walmart I reach with my heel to flush. Haha!
Thanks for coming this way to read the Log, I appreciate it.

'If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00,
Nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store. '
