  1. The Class-less Class

    It's a good thing this didn't happen on the way back, however i probably could have gotten fixed up at the veterinary clinic in Q!!
  2. The Class-less Class

    We had a great time at the Porters Party Place and it was finally over yesterday. It was quite a site as we had 4 rigs surrounding their house plus one of theirs that had to be moved to get everyone out. We had double fun because our first RV was there too. Randy and Liz bought our Allegro bus (BessyBus 1) and also joined up with our group, so we can keep up with our old friend. She's still going strong. We got back to Yuma with no problems, but later on in the evening it all went downhill. I was just getting ready for bed when i developed a nose bleed. I had one like this about 18 years ago and still have PSD from it. Wound up in the emergency room at 1:00am and that was a complete zoo. They had only one ER doctor on duty and the waiting room was packed. Some had been there over 8 hours and still hadn't seen the doctor. I did manage to get a nurse to help me, but still could not get the bleeding stopped all the way. We finally left about 5:00am and by 10:00 finally got it to stop. I remember IYQ had a episode with that in Demming and it was hard to stop his too. Now we were worn out and finally got some rest and all seems to be ok. They definitely need more doctors employed at the Yuma hospital. Now it's time to watch a OKC Thunder game and vege out! Steve

    Jeri, just don't let Buck drive and you may make it safely! Be careful out there. We made it up to Paul & Sue's place in Havasu for Christmas and have had a blast. 60 degrees here today and a warming trend starting so all is well. Merry Christmas to all!! Steve & Carol

    SWell, we had visitors!! Tom & Mary Jane stopped by on their way through and we had a nice visit. Then we went out to eat at Foothills eatery and spirits, which is just across the road from our park and found it was pretty good! Afterwards we came back to our rig and had a rousing game of Farkle before they shoved off. I was good to see them again as they have been close to us three or four times but we never got to hook up. Sounds like they're still "dancing around the country" and having a great time. Now we had to watch ball games and didn't do so good! Oklahoma University won in a squeaker against Kansas State, but the OKC Thunder and Packers didn't fare so well. We did all we could, but to no avail. Nice 94 degree day in Yuma today with a slight breeze. Oh yeah that's the forecast for the next week or so. Hmmm Not like Oklahoma where they had a tornado or two yesterday. Well time to head over to the pool and see what's going on.. Steve

    Good to hear that Delcie's treatments are going fine. Not easy to go through that process. Sending some prayers your way!! Merry Christmas and hope you have a good trip West. Steve

Sorry to hear about Levi, I think there must be a special heaven for pets to frolic in. Hugs for you guys. Roger, have you ever considered opening a RV repair shop. You probably have more experience than most owners. There is a Beaver parked two rigs down from ours and that guy had a bunch of trouble with his too. So it not "just you"!! Linda, no snow in Yuma yet, but it was a bit nippy this morning at 49 degrees. All the poodles have little coats on this morning. Hope everyone is doing fine, snow or no snow Steve

    Jerry, now you can't get away with anything any more!! Glad Janice came out with a positive change. Eyes are a scary thing to deal with, but they sure can do a lot with them now days. Jeff, I had part of it paid for with insurance, but I couldn't use that in Algodones! I have had some dental done down there in the past with good results. Steve
  9. The Class-less Class

    Sounds like a good idea Linda. This implant thing is good, but it takes 3 months to get it all done. I had a broken front tooth and the dentist in Oklahoma (or was it a veterinarian) started the implant process, so I had to find someone here in Yuma to finish the job. Sigh!!
  10. The Class-less Class

    Well, what a few days. We made it to Yuma and are settled in at Fortuna De Oro RV park. Huge place, but no entrance sign of any significance! Of course we came in the wrong way and had to unhook the scout car to find out where the real entrance was! We were given the only site in this place that had a tree blocking out satellite signal. Arrrgghh We finally got permission to move to another site so now all is good. We were in sort of a hurry to get here because I broke off a tooth that was anchoring my bridge and it was a mess. Sharp places to cut the tongue and all. I was able to get an appointment the morning after we got here and they were able to "get er done"! That meant dental surgery yesterday, bone grafts and two implants put in. Today I look like a big chipmunk, and feel like I went a couple of rounds with Mohammad Ali, but at least all the sharp places are gone. Now I have to eat soft things for a couple of months (margaritas) while everything heals up and can get the replacement bridge installed. I got lucky and found a dentist that would get me right in, and do me a good job too. Dr Lemmon at Picacho dental right next to Wal-mart, if you need one for anything. Now I think I'm going to take a steve for a while as I think the pain meds are about to kick in!! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Hmmmm million dollar bacon , sounds like that could cure a cold. If I don't get busted for carrying a cold over two state lines that is! Dave, all you have to do is put your bus on auto pilot and it will drive itself right to Red Bay. There is a secret homing device they put on all of their units that , if activated, will go straight home. I think they started doing that in 2014. It's usually an unlabeled button, so be carefull!! Linda, yep, this is definitely a cold and a doozie at that. Have to go to sam's and get the large bale of Kleenex before this is over. My head hurts, but that's from Carol banging on it for giving her the cold. Toni, sounds like you guys had a great time in merry old England. I too would rather travel by bus than get in a plane. I don't fit in those things any more. You're right Linda, IYQ sure kept us on our toes. I sure miss the old guy. I haven't had to hide the ice cream machine in so long I forgot where I put it. almost Oh yeah, did watch the Packers trounce the Seahawks, and Oklahoma put it on the Buckeyes!! yeeeee haaaaawwwww!!
  12. The Class-less Class

    Whaaaat no-one is posting!! Ok, I'll try one. We finally pulled the stakes loose from Oklahoma and headed to Colorado. We made it to the Elks Lodge in North Glenn and threw out the anchor. Both of us have come down with bad colds and we are just laying here sniffling and sneezing, so not too much going on. This place is a rather full parking lot with electric only and the dump at Cabalas about 5 miles or so down the street. The good part is it's $10 a night and only 9 miles from my sister's house. We did venture out for breakfast one morning and found a place called Delectable Eggs to sniffle our way into. Fantastic array of eggs benedict, crab benedict, salmon benedict and more. Got lucky on that one for sure. My sister just bought a condo near here and we got the grand tour the day before yesterday. Right on a golf course and in a semi gated community. Really nice, but no wheels!! This was a downsize for them as they both decided they didn't want to keep up with house & yard maintenance any more. I told her that we had the same thoughts and that we cruise around until we find a spot that's already mowed and park there. Hmmmm I have to go take some more cough medicine (ugh) so I'll sign off for now. BUT I will return!! Steve
  13. Best RV insurance for full-time

    We have "The general" right now as they gave us the best price this year. One thing that happened last year was a 5th wheel ran into the front of my bus when he was trying to park. He had Gieco insurance on his rig and they took very good care of me. We were in the middle of a trip to a high school reunion and were under a bit of a time constraint. They had a rear view mirror overnighted to us and a local vendor put it on. Then two months later we were in Red Bay Alabama (where tiffin's plant is) and had the rest of the front repaired and painted. Gieco took care of the bill promptly. I'm probably going to give them a try next year. Steve

    Dave, glad you got the extra time on the warranty, it may really come in handy. I guess Red Bay is on the way to Arizona.......... So you've been over feeding your gremlins? Naughty boy, we don't want to let those things get out of hand! Jeff, snow tires, chains, snow shovel and I suppose an ice scraper too?? Waaaay too much stuff, the first flake that touches the bus will auto start the engine and head us south! Roger, I do have a dilithium crystal polisher somewhere in the bus and that's probably what the flux capacitor needs to get it back in top shape. Now all I have to do is find it. Hmmmmmm
  15. The Class-less Class

    Good old motorhomes, always ready to try you for some reason. We are currently camped at a fairgrounds, and the annual fair is coming up. Well, we were in a section that you can't be in when the fair rolls around, so we had to move. As we were moving the bus, I had the dash air turned on to make sure everything is working ok, well it was 99 degrees too. When I was backing into the new spot, all of a sudden I realized the dash air quit. Hmmm, must be a blown fuse. I tried it a few more times while settling the motor home and figured I'd wait a couple of days and then find out where the fuse was and replace it. Today was the day to look for the fuse and I just turned on the system to see if anything had changed. Of course it worked fine!! I ran it for the better part of an hour and it was still working fine when I gave up and shut it off. Was I dreaming the other day when nothing would work?? Well, we are getting ready to head for Colorado in a couple of weeks, so that will make or break the system for sure. Just another adventure!!
