Well no. Hawaii is not on the list but Sandy Beach and Alaska are. I've got people coming by the house on Monday and Tuesday, then Wednesday-Monday Chico and I will be out at Sandy Beach, with Sandra coming out for the weekend. Then I'll be finishing up around the house for a day or two, then its the 11 day cruise to Alaska. I don't think I'm bringing my laptop, but I'm certainly bringing my camera. So, I'll be posting off and on for another week or so until we leave. Come back in a few days and I'll have new stuff. Or not.
Stardust has a good post here about what a fraud Mother Teresa was. I agree that she was no saint and she was nothing but a huckster. Like the rest of them. There's some movement in NYC to have the Empire State Building lit up on her birthday in her honor. Once the Catholic's get involved, you know they're up to no good. I think the Catholics should be honoring all the victims of preistly pedophilia. Like there's a real chance of that.
If I lost a leg, I'd still ride. It would be a matter of principle. And riding a scooter would be the easiest two wheeling of all. After all you don't shift gears, its all a matter of keeping your balance.
I fired up the rv today and brought it into work. Today, we're having a housekeeping team (Nicole and Megan) come in and do a cleaning. Since they can't clean while I'm sleeping, well, I need somewhere to take my beauty sleep. Sandra mentioned just going to Rodies and sleeping there. Problem is they don't allow access until 7 or 7:30 and I don't want to wait up that long. Besides, I like parking in the car wash at work and hiding out. I don't have power to the coach, but my power cords reach the outlet in the garage. I think my adapter (or "pigtail") has a short in it. My 15/20 amp cord is fine from the outlet to the end and my 30 amp cord worked the last time I was at Sandy Beach. I even got out the multimeter and acted like I knew what I was doing when I checked for continuity in the cord. I think the ground side of the three pronged adapter has a break in it as the multimeter showed an open line while the hot sides had continuity. So, I need to find an rv parts store and buy another one. Since my generator needs replacing (to the tune of $5000), I'd like to be able to plug into the power at work (yeah, you can say its stealing) when I'm hiding out in the car wash. When I've done this before, the dayside guys used to honk the air horns while driving by to wake me up. I guess that's from a bygone era because we don't have a dayside crew any more. If I think about it I'll take a snap and post it.
I poached this pic from Meesha because I like stuff like this. I'm a lover of the "old road" and like to take the scooter on the two lane variety. We don't get too much of that "covered wagon" history out here in California.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
