We have a new KITTY..

DSC_2624
Here is Ms Pat’s Birthday present from Dale and Gina. A new KITTY!  Megabyte2 looks at it and says WOW....that is a BIG girl!!  Pat was “shocked” when Dale presented her with this beautiful KITTY at Happy Hour last Tuesday evening, Nov 2nd.  It is handmade out of sheet metal with a cutting torch.
It seems that way back about 3 weeks ago at the HDT (Heavy Duty Truck) Rally in Hutchinson, KS, the Ladies had a “shopping day” and this KITTY was spotted in one of the stores. Gina and Dale decided that Ms Pat should have it for her upcoming Birthday. They snuck back, bought it and kept it a secret until last Tuesday. Gina couldn’t be here to present it to Ms Pat but I can see her smiling face.  Wish you could have been here Gina.  It would have made "Mom's" birthday extra special.

We are kicking back! Before we got here, I told Ms Pat, it was “Kick Back” time. It has just been one thing after another, project after project. Every since we bought the house in North Ranch last winter, it has been non-stop, work on this,work on that, work, work, work.  Furnishing the house, redoing the yard, then going to our place in Custer and starting the building of our “cabin”.....wow, that was a job. Then quickly into preparing our Teton and Volvo for sale and moving out of it. Then searching for a Motorhome and getting moved over into it.....Whoa,, SLOW DOWN!!!  This is too fast a pace….let's slow down a little.    So we are “Kicking Back”!

Retama Village here in Mission, TX is such a beautiful place and I enjoy the Hot Tub so much. What a great way to slow down and relax. Ms Pat and I use it often in the evening. The Blog may not have much to report for the next couple weeks because we are on “idle” for a while………."Coolin it" !! It’s been a great ride, kinda like a whirlwind.  After it’s over you think “Whew”! We accomplished SO MUCH and thank God for everyone’s help. I believe we are really “set” now and can sit back and enjoy!!! Praise the Lord for all he provides! If we really do have to get “OLD” someday, now we can relax and enjoy it.  None of us are going to live forever.

Soon it will be time to head West to North Ranch and I’m excited about that. But until then, I hope there isn’t much happening…. we both need a little rest.

Rollie and Gina are out in the "Kentucky" woods somewhere boondocking so no new Blogs from them for a few days.  They've been pretty busy this summer and it's time for them to "kick back", too.  Hope you're having fun Kids!!

We were happy to see that it was a huge metal Kitty, rather than a second little furry one!

We really enjoy seeing you in the hot tub, but we'd much rather is was you seeing us in a hot tub! We've owned two hot tubs in our life -- one in Montana with a view of mountains (through the window of our daylight basement) and one in our backyard in San Lorenzo, CA, with a view of our recently re-landscaped yard. Many happy hours spent in both tubs, either just us, or often with a tubful of friends. Thanks for the great reminder of the comforts of 104 degree water.

Another kitty, but no need for another litter box-that is a good gift.

You and Ms. Pat look very 'kicked back' in that hot tub! You're right though, it seems like you guys have been on a break neck pace for months now.

As they say, it's time to take a rest and enjoy the fruits of your labor!! You've earned it for all the hard work.
