What To Do During Delays?

This unexpected layover in Great Falls, MT, stretches on.  The alternator for Ferd is making its way from Michigan to Montana, while we wait here at Dick’s RV Park.  And meanwhile, I had another dentist visit when issues reoccurred from my extractions a month ago.  So, after a CT scan of my entire head, I have more antibiotics to kill out the nasty remnants of infection.  But, what to do for fun?  Didn’t feel like museums or exploring too much since the weather was cold. Besides, we’re geared up for Canada and Alaska.

So after a few more calls to reconfirm our confirmed information about Verizon services north of the border and notifying family of our new schedule, we’ve entertained ourselves with movies and Internet and music.  It is continually amazing what’s out there.  We wondered about folks we saw at the local WalMart who were obviously of a religious community in this area.  A quick search on the Internet answered our questions about the Hutterites.  Also, I came across a new website where you can collect any kind of information you want into your own personal collections, or bags.  It’s called BagtheWeb.  Then you can share the collection as you wish.  Interesting.  I could think of many uses.  And how about this? While I’m typing this post, Jerry’s reading a blog of unusual (so to speak) resumes. Tears are rolling down his face as he gives me some of the quotes: “ Please call me after 5:30 because I am self-employed and my employer does not know I am looking for another job.” And this one: “Excellent memory.  Strong math aptitude. Excellent memory.”

As far as movies,  somehow we’ve both missed a unique 1994 movie called “Radioland Murders.”  No more.  We had a great time watching it the other morning.  It’s clever and mesmerizing…..filled with double entendres and one-liners.  There’s one face after another that you recognize.  We laughed and laughed at this raucous comedy…that also had a message.  Good one for lightening up things a little.

And what about just listening to music?  For instance, this morning we  heard a great country song entitled “Stop the bar. I’m getting off and going home.”  and another one called “I’m stuck in Indianapolis.”   These were new to us.  How about you?

Before  we venture out to see Great Falls -- Here are a few thoughts that a good friend sent on the Internet today:

Gentle Thoughts for Today -

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. 

Birds of a feather flock together . . . ..and then crap on your car.

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight,
because by then your body and your fat

have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to
buy a replacement.

He who hesitates is probably right.

If you think there is good in everybody, you haven't met everybody. 

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when
he's really in trouble.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it.  For example,  I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Did you ever notice: When you put the two
words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...'

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
Why do signs of age seem to be creeping up so quickly?  Maybe because I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back

to your youth, think of Algebra.

Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand
over my mouth . . .. . . . . .. .AMEN!
