I was lazy pretty much all day yesterday. Actually, I’m lazy every day, but most of the time I make myself do something. Yesterday, I just indulged myself and didn’t do much of anything.
The Stamps.com website was down all day Friday and Saturday, so I couldn’t print the last of the labels for our final batch of mail that needed to go out. But it as back up by yesterday morning, and I wrapped them up so Miss Terry could stuff the last few envelopes, which we’ll drop off at the post office this morning.
Then I spent the rest of the day goofing around on the internet, loading up some of the tombstone pictures we took Saturday to Find A Grave, doing a little genealogy research, and watching old movies on TV.
At 4:30 we walked up to the clubhouse for the Sunday afternoon ice cream social. There is nothing like ice cream to bring a bunch of Escapees together, and we had a good time visiting with folks, talking about our RV travels, and sharing a few laughs.
Back at the motorhome, it was more of the same – just being lazy until I wrote the blog and got ready for bed. I really didn’t accomplish a darn thing all day long, and I didn’t even feel guilty about it!
I had some interesting responses to Saturday’s blog post Why Buy New When You Can Upgrade?, and most of the folks I’ve heard from seem to be in agreement that they would rather keep their present RVs and upgrade them than go into debt to buy a new rig.
One e-mail, from RVing friends who just purchased a new diesel pusher last year said that they are really regretting their purchase, and that they wish they had kept the coach they traded in and remodeled it instead. Another RVer wrote to say that they had crunched the numbers several times, and they decided that if they didn’t buy a new fifth wheel, they would save enough in interest over the next five years to cover the costs of remodeling the one they now have, and not have any payments to make.
I’ve had a couple of people ask me if Byron Hibshman from Traveling CCW will be at our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally in Yuma, presenting his evening class to get a Utah concealed weapons permit. Yes, Byron will be there doing a seminar on Transporting Firearms In Your RV, and teaching the evening class to get your permit. You don’t have to be a Utah resident, nor do you have to go to Utah to get the permit. Once you take Byron’s class and he signs off on it, you send your paperwork to Utah with the appropriate fees, and the permit is mailed to you. There is a separate fee for the class, which you will pay directly to Byron at the rally. You can contact him ahead of time at email@example.com if you have any questions.
There were a couple of places we wanted to visit in this area for stories in a future issue of the Gypsy Journal, but we have thunderstorms predicted for most of this week, so we’ll see how it goes. Who knows, I may just stay home and practice being lazy some more!
Thought For The Day – I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
