Project - Iago (first steps)

May 25, 2022  •  2 Comments
Most of you know enough about me that I always have a few "projects" going especially in the Summer. One of this Summer's projects is my taking a real initiative to build my somewhat tattered relationship with Iago my scarlet macaw. Iago's History: Iago came to me in 2003 when she was about 2.5 years old (she was hatched in 2000). She came to m...

Goodbye South Beach Hello Home

May 15, 2022  •  1 Comment
We really enjoyed our stay at South Beach but after 2 weeks the dogs (and I - sorta) were ready to head east again. But we didn't leave without a couple stops at the South Beach Fish Market for lunches (5 stars) and of course a visit to Bow Wow Meow and Fred Meyer. We also enjoyed the down time and my brother started to teach me cribbage. I'm prett...

South Oregon Lighthouses and South Beach (2 of 3)

May 12, 2022  •  1 Comment
Since I haven't really explored much in this part of Oregon my brother and I took a day and went exploring. Our main attraction was to visit a couple of lighthouses and do a bit of shopping in Bandon. I found the shop Cranberry Sweets and I highly recommend them and will likely be adding them to my list of places I'll order from. I went kinda crazy...

Helena to Oregon Dunes (long) 1 of 3

May 08, 2022  •  2 Comments
It's been a long 3 years since I've had a salt water "fix" so after MANY months of planning the trailer made it's remodel shake down voyage. I'll tell you we had a really rough start though so a little pre-trip information. About 3 weeks before we left Epic started having issues with horrible pain in his neck, shoulders and ribs. On top of that he...

Camping Wild Sorta

We are back from a week long camping trip to NW Montana. We loaded up my Mom and the dogs to caravan with my brother to our favorite campground for his birthday (55). We broke the drive up into a few hour trips and did our first every HipCamp stay. HipCamp is a newer online booking option much like a VRBO. We stayed at a small farm outside off Arle...

4 States, 2000+ Miles, 12 Days

July 03, 2021  •  3 Comments
The "big trip" is done and we are happily home here with pups and family. I took time off in June and traveled down to Phoenix to get my Mom and bring her back here for a few months visit. I haven't seen her in almost 3 years so was very happy we were able to arrange this trip to get her here safely. We also then met up with my brother on the drive...

Camper Update, Road Trip, Projects

March 28, 2021  •  4 Comments
And here we are at the end of March already. Hard to believe but time does march on with or without us for sure. It is really trying to act like Spring here but oh my gosh it is SO DRY! If it gets as warm today as they say I may drag the hoses out and see about getting some water on my gardens at least and probably the trees. The crocus are doing...

In Like a Lamb! Where Does the Time Go?

March 12, 2021  •  4 Comments
But boy I finally feel like we are headed into Spring - even though the temps aren't breaking 50 very often. Needless to say I'd rather be outside when it is warm enjoying the sunshine (yes even 45 is warm) rather than writing blogs on the computer - obviously! But I digress.... I have been energized by the sunshine and a few warm days. Even if no...

Bring on Spring

February 28, 2021  •  2 Comments
Well we can hope so anyway. Based on today's weather (Sunday) with its windy and cold nastiness it is hard to tell but hey, they keep promising 50 the end of the week. I'm counting on it as I really want to get out in the trailer and start that project. There is still lots of this going on in my house. Teddy seems to have overcome his two nasty...
