Letâ€™s see. My only â€œNewsâ€ is that I havenâ€™t had a cigarette in about 3 weeks now. Thatâ€™s cool. The last time I went in to buy smokes I bought one of those â€œe-cigsâ€ to try. Switched over completely. Havenâ€™t had an â€œanalogâ€ since. Oh sure, Iâ€™m still getting my nicotine fix; but at least Iâ€™m not getting the 1001 other things you get in cigarette smoke.
I tried the gums and patches and it just didnâ€™t work for me for very long. I think cause they tried to change my habits completely. With the e-cig I still step outside to â€œsmokeâ€ and everything feels pretty â€œnormal.â€ And over time Iâ€™ll be able to lower the amount of nicotine until Iâ€™m â€œsmokingâ€ 0mg.
Anyway, thatâ€™s my plan and it seems to be working so Iâ€™m going to stick to it. Itâ€™s about time after about 40 years of smoking! Iâ€™m getting too old for this stuff!
And speaking of getting old: Maybe you â€œolderâ€ guys can tell me; are there any days where youâ€™re still living but nothing aches? (And un-drugged!) Every time I climb on the roof or the top of the RV or spend the day moving rocks or whatever I get aches! Sick of it! Damn this getting old crap anyway!
Not much else going on around here. Still doing radio stuff and working on the RV. Spent most of yesterday (a nice sunny hot 80 degrees!!!!) pulling out the rear roof vent/skylight and sanding everything down to bare metal and reinstalling it with silicone sealant. Hope that stops the leak. Now I need to get to refinishing the interiorâ€¦
SWMBO and I (and the animals) are going to take a 3-4 day trip later this month to see if weâ€™re really the RVing types. Probably heading to Southern Washington; close enough to get home fairly easily if something goes terribly terribly wrong! But far enough â€œawayâ€ to feel like weâ€™ve actually gone somewhere. (Donâ€™t worry, someone will be â€œhouse sittingâ€ for us while weâ€™re out!!) Kind of a â€œshake downâ€ cruise.
AND weâ€™ve been talking about maybe selling this RV off and getting a newer used RV if we decide we do like being part of the RV thing. Do you know that there are RV parks that wonâ€™t let â€œolderâ€ RVâ€™s in? Really! So a newer RV is probably the way to go. We figure we can sell this one for around $4k to pay it off and consider the $2k weâ€™ve already spent as â€œlearningâ€ costs. Heck, we spent almost $30k fixing up a piece of property that we didnâ€™t get to build on so weâ€™re used to â€œlearningâ€ money!
Wx has mostly sucked around here. Several days of 50-60 degrees then one 80 degree day then back to 65 today and itâ€™s supposed to be 58 tomorrow. Sometimes I envy the rest of the country and their nice weather! (Yes, I like it warm!!!)
