Trouble with Blogger??

I am having so much trouble with Blogger, Is is me? Tried to make a comment on Me and My Dog. I am sure it didn't go through!    
    My mother always said, learn to be happy with what you have. Of course I disagreed with her. If everyone was "happy with what they have" then there would be no new inventions! But, I am thinking of just going with what I have. I have several months before I need to make a decision as what to do. I think what is holding me back, is I may not want to come back to Texas, but instead make my home elsewhere, and come back to visit Texas. Thus, I would want to be able to live in my rig. But, as of the last few days, I couldn't even make it to my doctors for my blood work! I am really low on energy, or have gotten really lazy. Maybe depression also has something to do with it. When I "think" about it, a motor home would be so much easier for me, and I really think if I travel I need the easy rig to set up and level. Then on the other hand, I have been "hauling" a big fifth wheel alone for 11 years now, and I know you don't always have to "set up" every night. I will have to think on it some more. I think I would have to buy a toad, and I don't know what kind, or how much money that would cost. I think driving a small car would sure be easier than trying to park my big truck. I know some of the P.O. in Calif. were really hard to get into with my truck. I have to use mail forwarding and some of the P.O. in small towns are not big rig friendly.

Me and My Dog has suggested Fresh Cab. for mice. I am wondering if anyone has used it,what results? I looked at it on Amazon, but it didn't get very good reviews, so I am waiting to hear from some RV'rs that has actually used it.

It's sold!

Well, back to the drawing board. The Dynamax sold before I could go look at it. I don't know how long it was listed for sale, but I knew it was a good price and would not last long. Ah, well. I am not in a hurry. I do know I do not want to give up my bed room. My back and hip hurts way too much to sleep on a sofa of any kind. I really bought this rig to live in, not pull, but you know the call of the road gets to you and first thing you know your are planning a trip! I am still trying to go to AZ and visit one of my friends that lives in Prescott,AZ. She is totally alone and has faced breast surgery,shoulder replacement, and now hip replacement for both hips. I keep hoping that by this fall I will be able to travel west, and also make the SOLO'S meeting in Jan. at Quartzsite. I would love to have a traveling "buddy", either in their rig, or share mine. So,far that has not worked out, nearly everyone has a pet, and I can't have anything other than poodles because of my allergies. I have a few months yet to make any decisions. I will still keep an eye out for a smaller rig, or even a camper van. We will just have to wait and see. I really don't want to give up my w/d and ice maker. Maybe one, but not both. I think I need to take some B-12 for energy!

Just what I need. second post today.

 Easy to drive and set up and I might be able to afford it!
 Dine table would have to be a computer table,
 Ain't she purddy? Also has hitch and will tow 5000 lbs
 Not bad kitchen, micro/convection oven.
 BUT NO BED!  Sofa makes a bed, looks like when it is made to a bed, no space
between it and the dine table.

 It would be great to travel in, but I don't know about living in it full time.
I would really like a bed that stays down all the time.
This one is close to me, so when the weather clears up, I will go look at it. It really suits me,except for having to make up the bed every night, or leave it down and block the bathroom.?

More tornados

More tornadoes in OK yesterday, terrible sight. We have warnings for our area again today. I pray I am not wiped out! More good reasons to leave Texas. They usually don't reach the Texas coast, but then you have hurricanes from June until Dec.No safe place to be in an RV. But if you get a direct hit, house or RV or Apt. your  home will be gone!I have stayed here for years because of my children and grand children. They are all grown, or gone, except one daughter. I think I should be able to live where I want to by now. I am thinking of trading my fifth wheel for a class A or even a nice class C.
Just a thought. More research is needed.
 Laguna Park is just across the dam from me.
 Hillsboro is 14 miles from my RV park.
                 Moore OK. tornado
               Moore OK. tornado  was the elementry school. I heard six children were killed.

Here we go again

We have had so much bad weather again, I am sick of it! Just day before yesterday north Texas had 13 tornadoes in Texas, hitting the beautiful lake side town of Granbury. Six people lost their lives, and hundreds lost everything they owned. Homes were flattened, one man was holding his dog, and the tornado sucked it right out of his arms. Still have not found it. They came really close to this RV park. IF, it had come through here, I would be dead today. No place here to go for safety, and I don't think I could "buck" the winds to even get there if there was!For years I have been trying to "get the hell out of Texas", and if, the tornadoes don't kill me I will try my best to do just that this year. Why not live where you want to live? I have loved AZ ever since the first time I was there, next choice, if I could afford it is San Diego. I lived there when I was a young bride, loved it too. I am probably too old to start now, but, why not?

Cold weather in May?

It was really cold here last night. Down to 34, crazy weather for this time of year. We got a little rain, but mostly cold. Makes my bones hurt! I haven't done anything, just trying to stay warm. Think I am really lazy! Just can't get motivated to do anything. TV is not good and I can only pick up one or two channels. Jason's Mobile RV will be fixing that for me, soon I hope! Thinking about trading my fifth wheel for a motorhome. I know some other ladies that have done just that and seem to like it. I had a class C when I started my SOLO life, and really enjoyed it, but thought it was way too small to live in. Now that I have been doing this alone for 16 years, I would do things different and I think I could live in a class C. I don't want to give up my ice maker, or washer dryer. That's the problem. Most class C don't have room for a W/D, and not many have ice maker. I am really not able to haul laundry to the laundry mat, and back. Maybe I can find something in between.
