Back report, it is getting better. I can now touch my knees. LOL Once you work on houses you find that RV’s are a brand new game. I am replacing the day/night blinds and having a lot of fun.
I should never say I enjoy a challenge, but I think I do.
We had neighbors from down the street drop in today. We have few visitors, it was sort of a treat. He is a retired farmer, likes to talk and had some great stories. I learn a lot from him. He has a very sweet wife. She says she now has no problem telling anyone who her favorite writer is, It is Jack Darnell. Of course I love this lady.
When she found out I wrote, I gave her a book. In a few hours the husband came up and asked, what is the price of the book? I argued around with him some but he is more stubborn than I. Probably that up state NY thing. LOL. Then he bought a copy of every one I had on hand. Next year I want one of all of ‘em for her.
We just pulled in here a couple weeks ago. I saw the next door neighbors out yesterday and went over to tell that we were going on vacation next Tuesday. They laughed. I think they are used to us moving in and out!
So you have aches and pains?
Do you remember the patent medicine, ‘Hadacol?’
Hadacol was a Patent medicine popular in the United States in the 1940s. It was developed and marketed by Dudley LeBlanc, a Louisiana entrepreneur and state senator. LeBlanc claimed that he stumbled upon the recipe when his own doctor administered a seemingly miraculous treatment that, LeBlanc claimed, brought him back from the point of death. LeBlanc made outrageous claims for the medicine, marketing it as a cure for virtually every illness, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, Epilepsy, and hay fever. Hadacol enjoyed enormous popularity on the U.S. market, even though it consisted mostly of alcohol and vitamins and had little medicinal value.
Big joke among boys was: Why do they call it Hadacol?
ANS: Because they had-a-call it something!
