A couple of months ago, some readers chastised me because I said that as much as I adore my two granddaughters, and while I love playing with them and spoiling them, at the end of the day, I send them home to their mother. My motorhome sleeps two, I was told that I was missing out on one of the greatest parts of being a grandparent by not taking the girls on short trips with us.
Okay, here’s the truth – I wouldn’t mind taking the girls on an outing, but I just don’t want them exposed to the kind of people who run around the country in RVs. It’s bad enough that I have to hang out with them!
The crowd loitering here at Elkhart Campground right now is a good example. They may look like responsible citizens, even adults at first glance, but if you peek under that thin veneer, you’ll find the world’s oldest juvenile delinquents.
If you don’t believe me, just look at what they did to Bob and Molly Pinner’s car yesterday evening!
Now, nobody is naming any names here, but my confidential sources tell me that the miscreants responsible for this include some names that are very high up in the hierarchy of the Escapees RV Club.
It’s bad enough to toilet paper the outside of somebody’s car, but the inside too???? Have they no decency?
Bob and Molly took it all in stride, because they’ve been known to have to call somebody late at night to raise bail money too! Bob tells me that there will be payback, and somehow, I don’t doubt that at all!
The scary thing is that Al Hesselbart from the RV Hall of Fame Museum, and Dennis Hill from the RV Driving School, were the ones who drove up in the car, with Just Married signs in the back window! I bet that raised some eyebrows going through town!
I don’t know what Al and Dennis are doing here, but I think they’re either fixing to consummate their marriage, or negotiating their divorce!
When I was a young man, my Daddy told me to stay away from women like this! I’m sure glad I ignored the old man!
This is what happens when cousins marry and have children!
So there you have it. Would you want your grandchildren exposed to people like this? They’d go back to pre-school and start running a loan shark racket on the playground!
Why, even I, at my advanced age and with my strong moral fiber, have been known to be late to Sunday School if I spend Friday night with this bunch!
Thought For The Day – Of course I’m against sin; I’m against anything that I’m too old to enjoy!
