Another Divine Intervention !!

Several months ago, my Epson printer “died.” I tried all kinds of things to resuscitate it–to no avail. Yesterday, I planned to haul it to the large trash receptacle (along with lots of empty boxes). But I couldn’t resist pushing the “on” button one more time. Surprise: The lights came on and it looks like all is okay. Hallelujah!! ~~~~ I’ve been “procrastinating”; I haven’t wanted the expense of a new printer. A power bigger than myself intervened and “healed” my printer. I’m so grateful!!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Selling my beloved 2004 T@B. It’s a “classic”; no modifications, all original. It has been my intention to donate it to the RV-MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana. Frankly, I need money and the T@B is my only asset. Pictures can be seen on T@B Teardrop Trailer Travels. Specific interior view. From Germany, 360 degree view, and more.

Built in Germany in 2003 or 2004 and shipped to Dutchmen, in Indiana, as a prototype. It was “like new” when I purchased in 2009. Some weathering since… but well-loved and well maintained.

T@B Add-a-room, T@B awning, and large vehicle cover. Nature’s Head composting toilet. Every RV accessory you might want!! Ready to roll with everything you need: Sleeping bags, kitchen utensils, towels, etc.

For more information, please email me at

Breaks my heart to post this for sale message!! Getting old is a bummer!!!!! Oh, to be on-the-road again (occasionally) with my beloved T@B.

What’s cookin’ ??

Preparing 15-bean soupSure smells good!!

It is 15-Bean Soup for the “Soup Fest” Sunday evening at the Activity Center at Escapees Rainbow’s End RV Park. That event is the Kick Off for one week of activities for the CARE Health Fair. I’ll try to keep you informed as events unfold.

Cook smelling food in pot“Soup Fest” is another fund-raiser for the CARE Center. It’s a very popular event. For $5.00, the attendee receives five styrofoam cups. They can enjoy a generous sample from over twenty selections. Those of us preparing… do so at our own expense: A labor of love. Last year I was “the new kid” (I didn’t know the drill). I took my contribution in the large kettle–only to learn that everyone had theirs in crock pots. A thoughtful lady went home for a crock pot and transferred my (likewise) 15-bean soup. (The event continues for over two hours.) At one semi-annual CARE “garage sale,” I bought the large crock pot and said “I may only use it once a year.” This is my first occasion to use it!!


What else is new?? We are in our second day of heavy rain. One rain gauge is full and overflowing; second gauge fell off post and is lying in the water. I am living (again) on the shore of “Lake Lorraine.”

An overcast morning, 74 degrees outdoors, at 11 o’clock. Very pleasant weather to work in the storage building at my RV site. I’m exhausted!! Oh, for another pair of hands–and arms!! One hopefully valuable swap: Heater for fan. Electricity is cheaper than propane so I’ve used the tower heater a lot this Winter.  I’ll need the tower oscillating fan soon (neighbors are already running their air-conditioners). ~~ Almost emptyDecisions, decisions!! I must get rid of a lot of things. Parting is difficult!! ~~ Yesterday, hours spent at the storage unit down the highway. I finished moving items from the large unit to a smaller unit. The real job starts soon: Major downsizing!!
