Dumpster diving....."the dumps"

Ok, now what ya wanna do? I tried everthing I know an' it still ain't work'n.

Yesterdays Walmart trip was not a good trip. Nuttin happened funny, so don't git all excitis. In the first 10 minutes, I was fine. Then things changed....I had to find a sit down somewheres. Not onest, but three times before I got out of there. Then at "da house" I had to carry all that stuff I bought inside.

Then....last night I was sit'n here. I says "why my feet feel funny"? I look down....I got really big swolled up feet. What the hell???

Ok, on to something else. Although, aches an' pains, are the 'the' thing now days. That's what "old folks" talk bout ya know.

I was read'n on the blogs, a lot of people are headed back north. I rekon it's cause they don't like the summer heat in the south. Apparently they don't like the winter cold of the north neither 'cause they flock to the south in the winter. I'm think'n that has something to do with be'n retired an' do'n whatever ya want to. That's the way I look at it anyhows.

Even myself, I think of different places to go in the winter an' in the summer....look'n for comfortable weather where I'm not freez'n slap to death or sweat'n like a stuffed hog. I've yet to find the ideal spots for that. Well, I've found a few, but they either too expensive or they ain't got what I like to do. You know, fish'n an' golf'n, just to mention the most important two. It's either one or the other an' in some cases....neither. This limits my winter an' summer travels. Of course, I would never go somewheres where I didn't have a internet signal.....or a Walmart within 25 miles.

One of the best winter spots I found to winter camp is right here in south Texas in the Corpus Christi areas. Winters are usually, notice I said usually, very short an' not very cold. There is year round salt water fish'n an' short distances to fresh water lakes. An' year round golf ball swak'n if'n ya like golf ball swak'n. Dang, I sound like the local Chamber of Commerce....I'm done with that.

Again, talk'n bout my trip to Georgia. I'm just not at all excitis bout it. There's a possibility I may not go. But then lately, I ain't been excitis bout nuttin.....so maybe I will go, excitis or not. Think'n that may be another drawback of the old "git'n old" syndrome. I sit here at my computer, an' over there on the couch, think'n bout all the places I would like to visit an' all the things I would like to do....an' that's bout as far as it goes. Just think'n an' no do'n.

Ok, this post ain't go'n nowhere. See ya laters.....

  2. Even if you aren't excited right now about the trip to GA, go and see how it feels. Maybe if you get going it will pop you out of the rut. On the other hand, you may decided to head back there again. You won't know unless you try.

  3. After all the trips I've made to Ga., I know pretty much what to expect....."shhhhhh....papaw is a grouch when he wakes up from a nap".
    I know what ya mean bout "get'n go'n" may pop me out of this rut. Just to be go'n down the road a piece would probly do that.

  4. How about you stay in Texas and I'll go to Georgia in your place. You did say something about Dahlonega, didn't you? I'd be right happy being there. Oh, and tell them I'm not a grouch when I wake up from a nap:-)

    1. If we was go'n to Dahlonega, we would be go'n together. You ain't pull'n that kind of stuff on the old Billy Bob...talk'n him into stay'n in Texas an' then you go have all the fun. If all I had to do in Ga. was to go camp'n, I would be happy. An' you are always welcome in my camp site....you do know how to brew up a good pot of coffee over a open camp fire....right?

  7. Billy Bob,

    "There's some issues that need taken care of first.....the most important is get'n excited."

    There you go. I'm thinking that idea you have about putting a motor on your bicycle would be just the thing to get you going 'excited'. And could prove to be a gold mine of topics of before, during and after the conversion. Then starting your own "motor bike" gang! I'm laughing already. Good luck. Max from Illinois.

  8. Most of the people you see leaving are going to Canada, they can only stay 6 months in the USA and must return to their homes in Canada...They have to have some means cause they pay taxes in Canada and try to not pay taxes in the USA but they get them here too..Most have motor homes one could only dream of owning, so they did good in Canada..I mean really a $175,000 on up to $200,000 and they do own homes in Canada, not many in USA can do that..I volunteer for people who barely get any money for food at all, those motorhomes I see on blogs would be enough for most americans to live one full year, food and all..enjoy your trip to Georgia your son sound like he really cares about seeing you and your health, you are wealthy in that you have familia who cares and you do have a roof over your head, food and Sadie mae too...enjoy your time with your son and get some help for your back ciao!
