“Shut up and Go To Sleep”

Rude, I know but my brain just doesn’t stop grinding over anything that pops up and a lot has been popping up lately.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I had joined a dating app, EliteSingles. My daughter met some nice people on a similar app so I thought I’d give it a try…..I joined and three days later I quit, thinking it was asking to quit adding another payment when my period of time was up, it was $100plus and I didn’t think that was necessary, but actually the whole account was cancelled without a refund after using it for just 3 days. I’ve requested help but doubt anyone cares, they got their money.

I did meet a nice guy but he hates dogs so that ended that quickly.

As I am as old as I am, the faces of men as possibles matches were all old too. I consider myself a young old lady and I’m sure most of the men feel they are as well but…………….really? I’m pretty happy as I am but this has made me think that there could be yet another page added to this ever changing life.

And change is good.

But I’m not expecting any great love affair to come of it. Don’t know if I’m ready to re-enter regular society after my boho life style I’ve been living.

Living in an RV brings complications one doesn’t think of, like having your fresh water hose freezing during the night and finding you have no water flowing in the morning. This happens even to the well prepared in grand RV’s not only my humble GG. After considering the fact that we will probably have more freezing nights I have ordered the super dooper blue hose which supposedly resolves that issue at a fairly reasonable investment that lasts for many years so I won’t wake up with no water again (until the sun warms the hose which had been the case in past years)

My plants are all happily living in the cab of the RV, thriving in fact so I don’t need to keep the studio heated for them which is a plus. I think I can save them til Spring.

It’s cold, yesterday I went to Hatch at 7:30 to do laundry and it was 21 degrees with frost on my windshield, but we still have the best weather, no snow here.


Back home for some time now

But haven’t been in the mood to get started here again. As a matter of fact I’ll close my account and continue using my free account so soon my blog will be just tailgateart-othon.wordpress.com or something similar.

The trip was good, GG was excellent until I left the lights on and the battery died. I was at my sons place in Plano Tx and he took care of it for me and got me a new battery after AAA wasn’t able to jump it

Oh a note about AAA.. I had an account with them for both my car and RV. I found out when I got home and checked my mail that they had terminated my account of both because I live full time in my RV…which I told them when applying for coverage. Did you hear that…I found this out when I got home, I drove GG all the way home without knowing I had no coverage!!!

And the insurance agent never returned my calls

So angry

Except for that and poor Charley hating and shaking every time I started up the motor the trip was good, we slept in truck stops and once at Walmart, no problems, just a very long ride

And I think, no I know I almost killed Charley. Because he is so nervous I wanted to sedate him a little to make it easier on him…and me too. So I got Benadryl liquid and a syringe to shoot it in his mouth. Unfortunately some got down the wrong way and he aspirated some of it. He started wheezing and struggling to breath, it was awful. This lasted about an hour while I’m trying to massage and clap on his lungs not being sure where exactly I should clap and my sister is googling what to do in case of aspiration. Somehow he pulled out of it and another hour later we hit the rode going home. Next time a pill

is the only way I’ll try again…oh he was not sedated at all by ingesting Benadryl

It’s cold in Caballo tonight, it’s going to freeze which reminds me I have to remove the water hose from the RV so nothings breaks. I’ve brought all plants inside and they have taken over the cab, I’ll add a photo, they love it up there, the geraniums are flowering as never before, I mist them and water them when dry

The cab florist

I’ve got iffy wifi so the pic might not happen today. My hot spot keeps dropping
