After all, It is just an RV

The Old Girl on a high ridge above Cranfills Gap, TX ca. 2007

When I bought the Old Girl, what was it?  Almost 10 years ago?  there was no cognizance regarding a recreational vehicle as a central fixture of my Master Plan.  It was a whim.  I was fat.  Crossed my mind an RV would be a nice toy.  I bought one.  Every thing happens for a reason.  I knew that then.  I BELIEVE in it now.

K.I.S.S. == Our little corner of the World. It gives me comfort

Gate Guard Life: The 20′ flame on the flare stack just down the road is standing straight up this morning. No wind; I hate that.  The  caliche dust from the traffic on the road hangs like a low fog with no currents of wind to disburse it.  It sticks in my throat and films the top of my coffee.  I can feel the grit on my skin.  The scenery seldom changes where I sit.
