Anybody who knows me well already knows that I require adult supervision at all times. Left to my own devices, there is no end to the trouble I can get into, and I don’t have to look far to find it. So you can blame Miss Terry, or Greg White, or Ron Speidel for what I’m about to tell you. They’re the ones who let me out the door all by myself.
Oh, and if you’re drinking or eating anything while you’re reading this, you might want to put it aside for a moment. You have been warned.
Terry and I have noticed a very nice looking Beaver Marquis motorhome here at the campground, and we have been trying to decide how long it is. It seems to be longer than our 40 foot Winnebago Ultimate Advantage, but we didn’t think Beaver made anything bigger.
Yesterday I was walking by when the lady who owns the rig was outside with her dog, so I stopped to scratch its ears and we chatted for a moment. Then I asked her, “By the way, how big is your Beaver?” She did a double take, then started laughing and asked “Don’t you think that’s kind of a personal question?” The fact that I had no idea what came over her and was standing there looking confused only added to her glee. Then it hit me!
No, that wasn’t global warming that shot the temperature up several degrees for a few minutes, it was just my face turning very, very red! Pretty soon we were both laughing so hard that her husband poked his head out the door. But he took one look and decided that whatever was going on, he wanted no part of it and went back inside. Yep, I need adult supervision.
I wrapped up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday and Miss Terry went right to work proofing it. Once I make the corrections, I’ll upload it to the printer’s webserver, and they will do their thing. This is our 82nd issue, and somebody with more time on their hands than I have once estimated that a typical 36 page issue has somewhere between 40,000 and 50,000 words in it. Even at the lower number, that’s over 3,200,000 words! No wonder I wear out so many keyboards.
This afternoon, if I get the last minute corrections made and the paper uploaded in time, we plan to drive down to Paradise Oaks RV Park in Bushnell for the kickoff of the TechnoGeek Learning Rally, hosted by our friends Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour, and Phil and Tracey May from TechnoRV. The event runs for five days, and the last time I checked they still had a few openings. If you need to learn how to get the most out of your smart phone, digital camera, computer, or GPS, check it out. Between the four of them, Phil, Tracey, Jim and Chris are a quartet of tech geniuses.
Thought For The Day – The sooner you fall behind the more time you have to catch up.
