For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

Did Absolutely Nothing, Today

Something strange happened to the formatting in the first post.

A friend of mine, Dixie, stayed over last night. She's on her way from Florida to North Carolina. She was sitting on the couch next to me when Jack came over and looked at her, then looked at me very forlornly. Then the whining began. I knew what he wanted. He wanted Dixie to get up so he could take his spot next to me. Naturally, Dixie was good natured about it--she's known Jack, the character, for a long time, and she accepts the fact that I'm a nut because I told her he wanted to sit where she was. 

I checked this morning. Things are dried out in the trailer. I'm leaving the heat on for another night. I'll tackle trying to find the origin of the water and try to get the electric on when I know I'm not going to undo the good they've done for my back. Just wanted to write a quick note--maybe the last one for the year. Happy Holidays one and all, and peace and happiness in the New Year.


  1. My Rusty does the same as your Jack. People think he is "talking" to them or wanting attention. I have to tell them no, he just wants you to move off his couch!! Dogs are so fun.

    Merry Christmas to you.

  2. Thanks, Donna. Yes, Dogs are fun. Merry Christmas to you and those you love, as well.

  3. Water can really be trouble. You never know where it came from at first site. I know you want to find the source but please don't hurt yourself.

    Happy Holiday to you and Jack

  4. Jo, Jo, the heater is still on. I'm not going to worry about it until after the holiday. I don't want to be frustrated not being able to reach and lift things to get it back to where I can move around. Where ever the water was coming from, it's not coming any more so the dryer I get it, the less I have to worry about mold or rotting floor. I can't wait to see my electric bill!

    Happy Holiday to you, too, JoJo, and to all I've become to know through reading blogs.


Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
