This is a letter Jesus might write about what's become of Christmas. I didn't write this letter, but thought I'd share it with the group. It's no secret that Christmas is the only religious holiday that has been picked apart, seemingly in an effort to defeat/annihilate/decimate it. I've never heard Muslims, Jews, Quakers, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons or any other religious group who has been told they aren't allowed to speak their holiday well-wishing equivalent of "Merry Christmas" to another… Continue

Over the weekend I was approached by one of the neighboring hotel to see if I would be interested in accepting a position. I told them I was always open to change, and I have been with the same chain for over 10 years, and the hotel has been sold in the last year. With new owners always comes change, some good, and some hard to understand. I get along well with the 3 guys that own the place and there was no meeting schedule until after christmas. (they do not live in this state) Today I drive… Continue

We (Happy and I)are at the Escapees "Rainbow Plantation" at Summerdale Alabama. Listening to the aftermath of Alabama vs. Florida game. Alabama just beat Florida for the SEC championship and will now play in the National Championship game.
We are under a "Hard Freeze" warning tonight. Hope my propane holds out. I have light bulbs in the water compartment. That should keep my water pipeing from freezing tonight. I can hear the Canadians laughing all the way down here.
This morning I… Continue

I live in a part of Virginia that did at one time get lots of snow. Now with the changing of times it has changed to where we get less than a ft a year. I am getting ready to go out the door and it is 34 degees and we have more than 6inches on snow on the ground. I look outside on the old Webber grill that has been sitting there for years and the stack is so high it is falling off the peak. I bought a new barn building last December and I think it has not been snowed on. I sit here and I wonder… Continue

After two days at the Lafayette/Breaux Bridge area including a great visit with my friend Kathy and her friend Mark and brother Trevor, I decided that it was time to get moving. Thursday was just another day on the road and I made it to the FamCamp at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS. This morning I went to the Seebee Base in Gulfport and got a vehicle sticker for the RV. Then back to Keesler. Hooked up the TOWD and started East. I decided to drive scenic Hwy 90 for awhile instead of immediately… Continue

Those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.
When Barack Obama was campaigning for president in 2007, his backers frequently compared him to former president John F. Kennedy. After a year in office, however, President Obama's words and actions align more closely with China's despotic Chairman Mao than with JFK's.
When Mao Tse Tung conquered China in 1949, his secret goal was to dominate the world. When Obama was elected President, many started… Continue

A scrumptious meal of Gumbo
It was still raining this morning so I decided to stay at the Lafayette KOA for another day. The rain stopped by nine am and I took Happy out for the second time this morning. It was reasonably warm, so we walked all around the KOA site. It is pretty large and has a lake that is at least 5 acres. I washed both couch covers and did a few other housekeeping chores. Yes, you can never get away from those. Kathy… Continue
