I’m still dealing with the crud so we didn’t do much of anything yesterday. Two different couples asked us to go with them to dinner but I didn’t want to go out and expose the whole world to this cold, and didn’t feel much like socializing anyway.
In the early afternoon a fellow named Gordon, who I had called based, upon a recommendation here at the office at Sumter Oaks RV Park, came by to wash our motorhome. It sure needed a bath and he did a pretty good job of it. Gordon charges $60 for a hand wash, no pressure washing, and he offered to include the roof for that price. Hey, why not?
I spent most of the day writing and working on our next Overlooked America blog, which I’ll be posting in a day or so. I also answered a few e-mails, and had to shake my head at one that came in a couple of days ago that I just got around to.
A woman wrote asking me if I knew any attorneys that take on cases for fulltime RVers against RV manufacturers. My first thought was that they have a lemon and are seeking recourse, a situation I hear a lot of, but this was something else entirely.
No, the woman wanted to sue the company who made their motorhome because she was frying chicken while her husband was driving through Georgia on Interstate 75. She said he had to swerve to avoid a road hazard and she wound up with hot grease all over her arms and chest and had to go to an ER for severe burns. Her feeling was that companies that make RVs should install some kind of safety feature to keep the stove from being turned on while in transit so things like this wouldn’t happen. Gee, when I was growing up we had a safety feature. It was called common sense. I wonder why they don’t make that available anymore.
Speaking of medical care on the road, if you’re a veteran getting your healthcare through the Veterans Administration, you may want to look into the Traveling Veterans Program. It is designed for veterans who spend extensive time away from their primary residence and preferred VA facility near their home who need continuation of their medical care, medication refills, or prosthetic equipment.

Hopefully the yayhoos at Yahoo and Network Solutions will finally get everything released to Go Daddy so we can complete the transfer of our website and get our primary email back online. In the meantime, if you have tried to contact us or order something through PayPal, we have not received it. I apologize for the inconvenience, and hopefully it will all be finished and we’ll be back on track pretty soon.
Congratulations William Duke, winner of our drawing for an audiobook of Dog’s Run, my mystery novel set in a small town in Ohio in 1951. We had 167 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon.
Thought For The Day – I have a bumper sticker that says “Honk If You Think I’m Sexy” and sometimes I sit still when the traffic light turns green until I feel really good about myself.
