My Mom and her great RV adventure!

Moms, ya gotta love em! I have to tell ya that ours keeps us perhaps a bit more entertained than most. 

Her and Jerry and their tiny, attitudinal dog/cat (I can't really say for sure) have been on an incredible RV adventure this year for the first time as retired folk. They bought the above class A (Lucy) while still in MN and set out on the road.

Well, the adventure thus far has been fun as I understand, and filled with all the standard NewB RVer scenarios of course. Mom always does it up right ya know! 

At any rate, I get this phone call the other night describing a scene that I did my best to replicate for you above with GIMP (my favorite image editing system). Luckily, all is well other than a now somewhat smaller retaining wall at the RV park they stayed in and a little dent in Lucy's ladder. 

I realize it might be considered bratty to make such a post about one's own mother, but I had to do it. She sent ME a dog toy in the mail the other day! A DOG toy! LOL! Yeah we love her!

  1. I.M. a thinkin' after readin' this here post that just maybe perhaps, the only crime yer Mom ever committed was a claimin' you as hers.

  2. Probably right on both counts :) She did raise me! I am a product of my upbringing! Lucky for me, she has a great sense of humor and won't clobber me too bad...I think...

  8. Does she have a blog? Maybe she will tell some stories on you! Moms are good, I'm one of them!

  9. Wow, I hope there wasn't any crime scene tape! Is it possible you exaggerated just a little, Mike? Glad they and the RV are OK. You better watch out after she sees this, though!

  12. Vanmom: She loves it, don't let her fool you!

    Merikay, Nope, she doesn't have a blog yet. I think it would be cool if she did, but then maybe I shouldn't encourage it now that you bring up the payback stories :)

    Judith, No exaggeration! If anything, I think I was gentle LOL! She did say that the tape said "caution" but I thought crime scene tape was more fun... She has seen it, she had some funny comments but forgot how to put them here. I am sure she will when she remembers :)

    Hi Anne, LOL! Thanks :)

    Sweet Tory! Hi! Thanks! Hey, did you notice the duct tape holding the crime scene tape to the front of Lucy?!! True to life baby!! I had to include small animals fleeing the scene since well, I am sure there were a few! Love You!! Tell the life-ruiner I said "hi"!

  17. Hi Everyone; Mike's Mom here.
    My son,, what can I say? I love him but he is a brat and I have lost control (as if I ever had it) and he is now up for adoption! Good luck to whoever adopts the him; being his Mom for the past 42 years has been quite a ride!!! And, I DO have stories to share about him and I MAY start a blog so that I can do so! Thanks for your support; but it was funny wasn't it? :)

  18. Hey Judy, I've noticed that Mike hasn't put up anything since your photo on March15th. Is he still alive? Have you done something nefarious to him for (totally justified) revenge? Those couple of comments don't count, they could be plants to throw us off the trail!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey Dara! LOL! Not this time, Drake can't have my ginger-bread man, even if it is supposed to be for someone furrier than myself :) Mom always said the dogs were my siblings at our house anyway...

    Pam, Hi stranger! We are doing great! Thanks! I hope you are having fun too!

    Mom! Trying to adopt me out again huh? LOL! That never works :) Start a blog, I dare ya! Double dog dare ya even! Well, I love you even if you did leave me on others doorsteps as a baby and resisted when they returned me...

    Hi Diane, Ha! That is funny! Nope, nothing nefarious this time!! I do need to get to blogging today. I have been working with jewelry stuff all week. Got some cool new tools :) I may have to make a little blog post about them, I will be using at least a few of them to do mods on Taj too!

    Thanks for all the comments! You folks are fun!
