RV’ing plus my favorite place.... The Dentist!

Memorable Automobiles from The Past:


One of our FIRST motor homes. LOL  

Below is the homemade trailer. the top lowered for towing.

Below was the first big one, the Overland.  Sonny and Colette on one of our trips.

For today:


This is the largest RV site we have had in a long time. We have had some roomy sites in Corps of Engineers Parks and other State and Nat’l Parks.  But Private parks like this Thousand Trails park, ‘Three Flags’, try to get as many sites as possible.  This site is larger due to the tree locations.

This is our front yard, plenty of room here.

Our neighbor just came over to ask if they could put their screened room sorta in our front yard, of course it is no problem, plenty of room.

The little Ranger we bought to see if we would like the motor home vs trailer.

We really like the privacy green gives us across country.

We have had some GREAT RV sites, not many bad ones. The largest sites of course are the BLM sites in the desert! ;-).



Not fun:

I’m off to see the Dentist, Broken tooth, probably old age. This one is probably about 73 yrs old, WE have 32 adult teeth and only 20 baby teeth. This is a 1st Molar doesn’t come in with the baby teeth. So I have had it since about 1949. I have become attached to it and hope MR. Dentist can cap it for me for $30.00. What do you think the chances are? ;-).

My teeth have been repaired in 3 branches of service, several states and Mexico. Except the military, they all ask, 'do you have dental insurance?' My answer is always NO! There is insurance for everything now days.

Ending up with RV'ing. And then there are the amazing springs all across the USA.  This one is Wekiwa in Florida:

The above spring makes this river, immediately spits out 45 million gallons a day making the Wekiwa river .  Meaning 'flowing water in the Creek language.

   PS 1.

From our tree, this is our fresh squeezed OJ. We were disappointed, it just is NOT good this year.

PS: From the papers of kids in a Christian School:

Oh bummer! Both on the broken tooth AND the disappointing orange juice. Suppose it's a sign y'all need to move on down the line?
As ever, I'm enjoying these images!

You had some great experiences floating along. The teeth? Not so much.

I had to have dentistry when we lived in Ireland. Dentist LOVED my American mouth, it was so much easier to work on.

Lovely photos, Jack. Great souvenirs of your many travels. Very adventurous.

When the dentist asked me to open my mouth wide and he leant forward to have a look he nearly fell in.

God bless.

Ugh with the dentist! Interesting about the orange juice. Hopefully the next batch made will taste better?

Sorry about the OJ when you expect it to be supreme. You've been around and we love how you love it and share. We started out on the ground or on top of a picnic table, then tents to Class C's but it sure was fun. Finally, we built the log cabin and never turned back. I broke a tooth not long ago and my dentist wanted to cap it. I turned it down at the cost of $500. I only wish it had simply been $30. Good luck
loven'hugs from up north where we are getting more snow....and just when a lot of it had melted. grrrrrr. We are supposed to get up to 5 inches again. Dangitall!!!!!
