Texas Hill Country
Now, I will admit that sometimes my brain is sorely lacking stimulation…and I’m not sure if the following was stimulation, or simply boredom. However, I do think my results are quite interesting.
One day as I was traveling to Texas on a road similar to the one above, though considerably busier than this one, I became focused on how many RVs there were on the northbound side of the road. Of course, at first I was just jealous, because all those people were headed for places I would like to be going. But alas, my TT was waiting for me down in Texas, where I had left it for the majority of the winter.
There were a LOT of 18-wheelers on the road, but there were also a LOT of RVs!!! My little pea-brain decided I should count how many RVs I saw compared to the number of semis. I counted for a rather large number of miles, and then did it again later in the day, just to substantiate the claims I am about to make. I came up with an average of 1 RV to every 19 semis. Then, I thought…that’s not really a fair accounting of how many people are RVing…I need to eliminate the semis from my count.
At that point, I started counting passenger vehicles compared to RVs. Low and behold, I actually ended up with…1 RV to every 9 cars. That means that 10% of the population is traveling in RVs!! How smart are they?!? I wish there had been a way to know how many were full timers opposed to part timers. I’ll have to work on that one!
Ya’ll have lots of fun…and be safe!!
I found this so touching, I simply had to reblog it for others to enjoy.
Shed not a tear when I be gone,
Don’t wet your cheeks for me.
I’m in the ink you write with
That you can not seem to see.
I sit beside you daily,
as you go about your life.
Watching out for trouble
I try to ward off strife.
I whisper secret stories
In your ear for you to write.
I infiltrate your thoughts
When you put out the light.
So there is no need to feel lonely
Or to wander there in gloom
For I am in every corner
Of each and every room.
*finger to lips* Shhh!

This I penned a while ago for a friend who said she didn’t think she could write now her mother had gone. She was her motivation and without her … In a stream of conciousness I wrote this and…
