Nature abhors a vacuum
I am still at Stagger Lee Music Park, and will be for a while. I have a number of personal goals I want to accomplish while I'm here, and some things for the Park also. And I have not caught up with myself yet. For a while I was saying "I need a year off with pay to catch up with myself!" And then I started saying "I need two years off with pay to catch up with myself!" And yet I thought 2 months would be enough??? NOT. One of the personal goals is to eliminate all the moss this rolling stone has gathered. OK, I'll settle for most of it. A 32 foot camper inhabited by one single female ought not to be this cluttered. To that end, I have gone through the entire rig (I still need to do the bays) and pulled out the obvious stuff that can go. Now, the question is what to do with it. I will not be adding to the landfill. A couple of days ago I found a home for this Gen-Turi that was taking up several cubic feet in my storage bays. I can't stand the noise of the big generator long enough to make it worthwhile hooking it up, so when someone said they would love to have one I hopped right on that and it's in the truck ready to ship on my next trip to town. Like I said, though - nature abhors a vacuum. One of our campers pulled out today and left this lovely, just the pattern I've been wanting, patio rug. I can't tell you how many times I've resisted buying one, even on sale, because where would I stow it? Those square feet in the bay, recently vacated by the Gen-Turi, sure didn't stay unallocated for long! So thank you, Cyn & Michelle. Michelle also told me of a flea market where she successfully unloads her extras a couple of times a year - and oh gee, it is on the way to my younger daughter's house. So I guess whenever I do head north, I'll make a stop there and try to convert some moss into a different sort of green.
