Our new home on wheels

Well we bit the bullet and bought it!!
It's a doll, and I can't wait to hit the road.
As my friend Kathy said "Happy Trails!"
The blacksmith and his bff picked it up Friday while I worked.
I haven't seen it being towed behind my car yet, but I was assured it looks great.

This was the first order of business. Remove it!!!

A little goo be gone worked great.

Some elbow greased helped too.
Greased lightning and a little scouring pad took all the tree sap off.
Tomorrow it will get power washed and then a hand wax job.

But in the mean time, a card game was in order.

Elizabeth loves the bed. Although she did take one tumble off of it head first.

The boys wanted to spend the night tonight, never mind it was a school night.
Here Alex is enjoying the Sunday paper, and Brady tries to steal the
back page reading from afar.
Not only did I get a camper this weekend, I won two Fall giveaways.
Thank you to Cyndi at stitch, stitch , stitch
Hope you all had a beautiful fall weekend!

I love it! I'm sure you and the blacksmith will have lots of fun, touring around with this. And when the times comes that I'm ready for one, I'll be asking your advice on how to convince my husband that we should get one! : )

You are going to really enjoy this. We have friends who are retired and go everywhere, with their camper. Other friends who live up by KC, spent last week at Bennett Spring. I'd love to camp there. Have camped at Montauk and Alley Spring, years ago. Enjoyed.

J worked for Cuivre River Electric Cooperative, for almost 40 years. They are still taking good care of us in retirement, in one way or other.
