Stuff to do

Well shoot, I don't know what I'm gonna do today. I ain't say'n that I ain't got nuttin what needs done 'cause I got plenty. I'm the type of a guy what uses a tool or something, thinks he might use it again in a week or so, so's I just lay it down somewheres. In time I got me a big ol' pile of "stuff" to stumble on ever time I walk by it. Not the perfect form of housekeep'n, but it works for me.

I have limited bandwidth on my Verizon air card. Since I bought this new laptop, with Windows 8 installed on it, my bandwidth usage has gone way up. In 6 days, this sucker has eat up 670 megabytes. Does anybody else have Windows 8 and are experienc'n the same problem? This sucker is download'n stuff I don't want. Don't even ask me if'n I want it or not. In my book, Windows 8 sucks. 

A couple bloggers are hav'n health issues. I don't like that crap.....it worries me. But at the same time, I can sit here an' look at my own health issues and think' nuttin of it. I might bitch an' moan a bit, bout hurt'n an' stuff like that, but worry that I'm gonna die, I don't do that. But when somebody else is hav'n problems, I worry bout them. Get well bloggers.

Dadgum Mississippi riverboat is still on my mind, even though it is all put back together an' hang'n on the wall. Everthing I was gonna fix an' modify has been completed. But....I ain't at all satisfied. The way I see it, I'm gonna be work'n on the Mississippi riverboat in the near future. "Git it right Billy Bob, I'm tired of hear'n bout this shit....an'... an'... fix that damn flag pole ya broke". 

Boy howdy, I feel nuttin but pity for all them folks up north what are still shovel'n snow an' driv'n round on a sheet of ice. Sure am glad it ain't me, 'cause I don't shovel nuttin no more. My God "Mama Nature", this is April.....spring time an' showers. Not only is the weather affect'n them people up north, it's affect'n the old Billy Bob too. I ain't go'n nowheres till it quits snow'n.

Speak'n of go'n nowheres, a few years ago, that's what I did. I took off on a trip with no particular place to go. Make a turn on the flip of a coin. "Wonder where this road goes"? Well shoot, it didn't go no where. Some god forsaken little burg out in the middle of nowheres. Sightsee'n tourist ain't never been there. RV parks an' places to park was nonexistent. "Where the hell is a Walmart"? That was the year Uncle Sam was hand'n out $600 dollar bills to everbody. Spended it all "go'n nowhere".

I said I would never do that again as long as I live.......but......that may be my agenda for this summer.

  1. I used to flip a coin at intersecting back country dirt roads, but not with the motorhome. That was back when I was young and stupid. Did I say it was always at night and way back in the deep woods? I would really like to be able to do that again with the RV for a year or two.

  2. Hi Billie! Been enjoyin' your yappings. Remember the old Lionel trains ? One of the 'engines' had a 'puffer' smokestack. Had one and if I remember right the smoke tablets were made of bicarbonate soda or something like that. Had a glow coil inside the smokestack and ya dropped a small tablet into it and it puffed out smoke. I wonder if ya researched a "LIONEL TRAIN " site if'n ya might get some luck with the smoke endeavor?? Hopin' ya figure it out. --Rolling Earthquake..Charlie

    1. Charlie, this riverboat is much bigger than a Lionel Train.....need lots of smoke. Yes I research the smoke thingy for the trains. My smoke generator works perfect. Just eats up a fully charged battery.

  3. Will Verizon charge you more or will your service just slow down?

    1. You can count as as one of them that "hate" Windows 8. It's dumb. This is a computer, not a hand held telephone thingy with a hunnert apps on it.

  5. Question for you Bill Bob. I am trying to drain my fresh water tank and for the life of me I can't find a valve anywhere. Could you give me a hint? I guess I could use "low point" places to drain everything, but surely there is a drain for the fresh water tank. I want to get rid of the old water and put new in it. There is no place in the manuals that tells me, other than the two low points for draining for winter storage.

    2. DD,
      I have had my tank out of the motorhome and there was NOT a drain in it. The only way to drain is to use the "low points" in the water system as you have said.

  6. You did not know what to do and the day happened anyway.
    No matter what time just flies on by.
    Enjoy you journeys wherever you go.

  8. I too rode a cow when I was about 6 yr old. Had me enough sense to never try that again.
