Working My Mind

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!!

Headed to Texas

My trip back to Texas is being made minus FS being towed behind.  So my nights have been spent in hotels, and that has been an experience!  The first night I found a “decent room”, at a decent price, that excepted pets.  However…when we walked in, Coco, (who has never in seven years wet in a house) squated.  I yelled…she stood up…I took her out.  When I came back in, I took a closer look at the carpet, and quite obviously former dog guests has used the carpet as grass!  So disgusting…

The second night, I went to two motels that wanted $25.00 a night for Coco.  The second of those also want a $50.00 deposit for using my Debit Card, which I wouldn’t get back for 2-3 weeks.  What’s with that??  My third attempt ended in about the same price, a $15.00 fee for Coco, and clean floors…yippee!

On the second day I started seeing signs of spring:

The colors were much prettier before I brought the pics here…many, many shades of green…and look how tall the grass is…

And then there were these from a rest area…

For tonight I found a nice room, decent price, and vinyl floors.  So Coco and I are both pleased.  And tomorrow we re-unite with our “little home on wheels”!  Soon we’ll be heading for New Mexico…

 

Shed Not A Tear.

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…
