Today's trip went well. We had trouble getting our stabilizing jacks to come up again, but it was not operator error this time. Dad says he needs to grease them. We hope they come up tomorrow and then we will fix them in Denver. We had more trouble with our braking alarm. It appears there is a bad connection. We stopped once because the red light came on which means the Jeeps' brakes were on while we were driving. We were able to pull off at a gas station, but the Jeep was fine. We will need to figure out where the bad connection is on the brake alarm system when we get to Denver. It worked fine with the other motor home.
There was one funny thing that happened today. We had just pulled out of the campground and we were making a left hand turn to get to the highway. Dad looked in the back up camera and didn't see the Jeep. Mama looked in the camera and said "WHERE'S THE JEEP?" It turns out that Dad had the signal on and that switches the camera to the side view instead of the back view of the motor home. BOL! The Jeep was there, we just couldn't see it.
We saw buffalo today, but no photos as the camera's battery went dead. We could have seen the world's largest prairie dog, but Dad said we didn't have time to stop. They also had rattlesnakes and pigs that you could pet according to the signs. We assume they mean you pet the pigs and not the rattlesnakes. We saw a rattlesnake in our campsite last year and that was close enough for us. There were also signs for a Prairie Dog Town. It may have been the same place. We are not sure. We think Prairie Dog Town would have been fun to visit.
There were two bunnies running around the campground this morning. Scout said maybe it was the Easter Bunny, but I don't think it was.
Our campground here in Kansas is empty except for one other camper and they put us next to them. The place is pretty basic. It is very flat. The place last night was full of hills.
We hope we don't have any typos in our post. We are tired and it looks fine to us. BOL!
The Greyhound Who Gained An Hour Today

|Scout relaxing on our trip.|
|Mama moved my bed to the front with her. I am a happy guy.|
|Another view in Oklahoma|
|Scout was a big hit. I just wanted to explore. We didn't get to see the entire place because it got dark.|
|The office, store and restaurant.|
|Not sure this is what it is supposed to look like. Lots of red clay here.|
|There is so much to sniff here.|
The Greyhound Who Is Headed To Bed Early Tonight

- We sold our house.
- We bought our new motor home.
- We became Texans. Dad became one this week, so now we are official.
- We bought shades for our motor home. I am not sure if that one really counts, but Mama says it does.
A funny thing happened the other night. Mama ordered a meat lovers pizza with black olives and mushrooms and Quepapas from Pizza Hut. Quepapas are like tator tots with jalapenos in them. She ordered online. She received a phone call from them and she couldn't understand what the man was saying. He was speaking Spanish. Mama took her first Spanish class that day, but nothing she learned sounded like what he was saying. BOL! She thought he was saying no delivery, but she finally figured out he was saying no quepapas today. She somehow figured out that he was asking her to order something else. She told him the chocolate dessert. She didn't know for sure what she was going to get. The delivery driver ended up getting lost. He finally arrived and Mama was delighted to see the chocolate dessert was correct. She was not happy to see that her pizza ended up just being black olives and mushrooms. BOL!
|Since we are now Texans, this hangs in our home.|
Oh, we found out our next destination yesterday which means we will only be in Denver for a month. We hoped to stay longer. We will give you one hint and that is that it is not Egypt. BOL! Yes, Dad was asked if he wanted to go there. He was able to say no without any issues since he only works in North America.

The Greyhound Who Has A Muscular Butt
Monday, March 25, 2013
|Rakes and shovels|
|A train for the kids|
|Scout seems happier about it than me.|
|The thrill is wearing off.|
|I don't like it.|
|This is as good as it gets and Mama is even holding on to me. See, that's her hand.|
|I don't care if there are treats involved.|
|Get it off of me!|
|I may be a Texan, but I don't do cowboy hats.|
|Okay, one more, but that is it.|

The Greyhound Who Fell On His Chin!

We were a little nervous with him here because he had to put snaps on the outside of the motor home and that was loud. It didn't last long and then he put the shade across the windshield. Mama said "ooooh and ahhhh". BOL!
|This is our greyhound wind spinner. A man today stopped by to say he really liked it.|
|This is a before photo without the shades. See the spinner in the tree. Our greyhound flag is next to the tree.|
|Us enjoying our motor home. Okay, back to the topic of this post.|
|The screen man at work.|
|The screen on our door. It already has a screen, but now it has a second one.|
|Before the shade.|
|After the shade. See, we can still see out.|
|We have shades on our tires to protect them from the sun.|
|This is the shade on our door.|
|The front of the motor home. People can't see in! Mama loves that.|
|Another view of the shade on the driver's side window.|
The screen guy picked up three more jobs because of us. He told us he had to work on other jobs next week, so it could be a while before they get theirs, if at all.

The Greyhound Who Is Thinks Denver Sounds Wild
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
The people who are going to install our screens are supposed to be here today. Mama has her doubts. We hope they show up.
You may have noticed that we now have some Amazon banners on our site. Mama orders from them all the time and decided to become an affiliate. They reviewed our blog and accepted us! If you are placing an order with them anyway, please come to our site and click on the search link to find your item. It is on the sidebar. Mama says any money that is made will go to us! Mama is going to keep the one link updated with her favorite things. Remember when Mama organized all her photos? Well, she ordered the organizer from Amazon. She has it listed in the "I Recommend" widget which is also on the sidebar. We won't "hound" you about buying things, but if Mama buys something she really likes, she will list it on the sidebar and maybe that will wet your appetite. BOL!
Our camera and computer are not cooperating with each other today, so here are a few photos from last year. This is when we were in Naples, FL.
|I think Mama was thinking of this when she thought it was funny that we were called "showdogs".|
