Well....It Happened Again!

YES, I thank God it happened again. Just like every June 22nd for the last 3/4 of a century, I turned a year older. Thanks so much to everyone for the calls, emails, facebook, ecards, messages and for those that just thought of me.  I am a very lucky guy, in so many ways. When I think back over the past, I am in total awe. What a “past” it has been.  So many memories, it would take me a lifetime to tell you about them all. I do want to tell everyone that I am so blessed to have each and every one of you in my life…. THANK YOU !!!

I am happy to report that after a "looong" day in Rapid City yesterday, the Floor Covering and the Kitchen Cabinets have been ordered….plus we picked out the Sink, Stove Top and the Convection Microwave. The flooring is scheduled to start next week. Hopefully, by this time next week, it will be completed.  However the Kitchen Cabinets are a different story. It will be 4-6 weeks before they arrive. So, maybe with a little luck they will be installed by the end of July.

I can’t wait to get all this completed.  Will it ever be over?  We have accomplished so much it is unbelievable. Just to think that at this time last year, it was all just a dream. Now it is almost a Dream come true!!  However, in the future if I ever mention remodeling or building anything, will you please have a serious talk with me?,,,,Please!

We took the Harley into a Motorcycle shop in Spearfish for installation of the Voyage Trike Kit yesterday. It is supposed to be installed today. This Shop is a Voyager Trike Kit dealer and has experience installing them. So I am hoping it gets done today and I can go get it.  Maybe I’ll be "Triking" this afternoon...that would be a GREAT birthday present.  I’m anxious to see how this new adventure goes…. Wish me luck!

Very glad to have you folks join us…the total is nearing 190!  WOW, God Bless all you wonderful people!!

Fellow RV'ers, Ed and Marilyn, lost their beautiful Mobile Suites in a fire a couple of days ago while they were traveling to St. Joe, Mo.  They managed to save their truck and they weren't injured so it could have been a lot worse.  They definitely had  "God's Angels" traveling with them.  Take a look at their BLOG for more details and pictures.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they try to get their lives back in order.

Thanks for stopping by….
