They have a lot of color around their place





Thinking South-Tip for Rvers

Tip for a trip
Create an emergency kit and put it in an outside storage compartment. It should include first aid supplies, a pencil and paper, flashlight, and disposable camera for capturing the scene of an accident. Compile a list of names (doctor, insurance agent, lawyer) and any medications you’re currently taking. Then hope there’s never a need to open it.

I was reading a list of RV tips and this is one I thought was special. And as I think about it not a bad idea for van or car travellers too.

From Kay Voss-Chili

"53 pints of chili !  I am pooped.   I get 21 or so pints in the pressure cooker, so will need to run 2 loads; I processed a load last night.   Sure looks good and smells wonderful here as I have bread in the oven also.   More tomatoes (5 gallon pail) are ripening in the kitchen.....We still have 2 pails of potatoes to can;  I am running out of jars! "

From Barb: This woman makes me tired just reading about all she does. She had better stay healthy or Jim will be up a creek being used to that kind of cooking! Smileycons! Smileycons!

Can any of you relate?
 
 

Barb says: I used to pride myself on my memory. I was able to rattle off people's phone numbers with no problem at all. I never wrote down appointments. Didn't have to. But now I struggle at times. Getting old is better than not getting old however!
