This may come as a surprise to some of you, but my beautiful, demure wife has a fetish. Well, to be honest with you, she has a bunch of fetishes. Okay, get your collective minds out of the gutter, that’s not what I mean. These are a different kind of fetish.

People have asked what we are going to put in the old type drawers that we recently hung in the hallway, and we really didn’t know when we first hung them there. But part of that problem has been solved now. When we first got together Terry had a collection of Native American fetishes, which are small carvings of animals and other things originally created to serve a ceremonial purpose in their culture.

They have been packed away since we started fulltime RVing, and the other day she dug them out and put them in some of the compartments of one of the type cases. I think they look pretty cool.

Somebody suggested that I put my police badges in one of the type cases, but most of the compartments in the type cases are too small and I don’t want to cut them up or modify them. I ordered a different display case for the badges, which arrived yesterday. I’ll show you a picture that once I get them arranged and get it hung on a wall somewhere.

We started yesterday with a doctor’s appointment for Terry, then we spent the rest of the day and evening with our buddies Greg and Jan White. We were talking about the days back when our friendship first began. We had met them a couple of times at rallies, including one of our Gypsy Journal rallies at the fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio. After the rally was over we returned to Elkhart Campground in Indiana, and just by the luck of the draw wound up parked in the next row in front of them. Greg had mentioned that he was good at fixing stuff, so when the water heater on our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage died on a cold, rainy morning I went knocking on his door asking for help. Standing in a puddle of rainwater holding an umbrella over Greg while he knelt in the water fixing the problem, and realizing he was having a good time doing it, I knew I had found a friend for life. Or at least a patsy I could exploit for a long, long time. And trust me, I have!

So it should be no surprise to you that I have plenty of chores for Greg to help me with while they are in the area. He dived into some of them yesterday, fixing computer problems for us, and I’ve got plenty more for him to do before they head back to Texas a week from today. But that will have to wait for a while, because they are heading down towards Fort Lauderdale for a couple of days to visit with a friend there. Yeah, I know, it’s kind of selfish to put their wants and needs in front of mine, but that’s the way Greg is. What can I say?
