This and That

Well, the RV Show is in town and it was first on my list of things to do today. I have ben attending the RV Show here in Spokane for the past ten years. The last couple of years it seemed to decline some and not very many RV's were sold.

This year, however, is a different story. I got there at 10AM when it opened and the line was at least a block long already. I think everyone had the same idea to go early. There were lots and lots of RV's and vendors and RV's were selling like hotcakes. Doesn't seem to be a recession here. It was a lot better laid out this year than in others. I did not buy a new one but I did get a few ideas about remodeling the one I have and I came away with a sack of free goodies.

Now I am not one to keep up with The Joneses, nor do I have to have the biggest or best. I don't want a particular brand just because someone else has one or the world is coming to an end because I don't have what they have. I also don't like to follow what everyone else is doing. Just Because they need two vehicles doesn't mean I want two. I couldn't drive two vehicles at the same time anyway.

I am happy with what I have. I am confident my "Out House" will serve me just fine. The mechanical part is fine and with a few upgrades to the interior to make it more homey I will have a lot less invested and I will have more fun.

When you buy new the minute you drive it off the showroom floor it will begin to depreciate. Myself, I would rather let someone else do that and buy something used and in good shape. Mine may not be as good looking as yours or have all the bells and whistles but it will have all the bells and whistles I need and if you want to refer to my RV as "a piece of JUNK" then do it to my face and not my back.

And now with my hammer and saw in hand...maybe I will go add a slide----or two---with a slide maybe my RV "won't look so tacky" (quote).

That's it For Today.

Jenny, I love your outhouse.. Why do you think anyone would call it a piece of junk.. Your home is what you make it anyway. I don't feel the need to keep up with the Joneses.. We only need to make ourselves happy.

Hi, I have finally had a chance to skip around some through your blog entries. I just love the stories of your grandmothers. Aren't memories grand. I like how you make a big deal about friends' birthdays. That's special. I'm looking forward to reading much more.

I can't believe someone would have the nerve to call your outhouse a piece of junk. What nerve! Hope you have lots of fun fixing the interior to your taste.

Hi Jenny, I have been following your blog for a while now. I live in Southern Indiana and love to read about your stories and your adventures. I can't believe someone would call your motorhome tacky! I am incensed!I think it is great. We have always camped and I think as long as you're out there camping it doesn't matter what your camping in. I am proud of you!

Who called the Out House tacky?
An Allegro is an Allegro, and they are one of best made. It will still look great when theirs have fallen to bits. Hugs. Penny, TX
