Life gets in the way of working on the bus
« on: December 24, 2007, 07:27:41 AM »
When I am under a lot of stress I get very quiet. With Christmas upon us I am slowly getting there. Ho Ho Ho
Merry Christmas....And all the blessings that have happened this year.

The developer next to me tried to get me fired (long story and still not over) so I have not enjoyed some of
the major blessing or had time to work on the bus.

Best present ever my youngest daughter gave birth to Leila Maya Friday 12-21 at 2:30. All healthy and my son-n-law
still is walking 3 feet off the ground. Their first.

May your blessing be bountiful and the wolves kept at bay.
Merry Christmas

Congratulations Gramps!!  How far off the ground are your feet?
We know what you mean about life getting in the way.  We consider ourselves blessed because we have our bus and we have family and friends.  Food, electric and fuel are just incidentals that you can do without.  LOL
Faith is not believing that God can, It's knowing that God will.

Congratulations Grandpa!!!!!!!!!!!

And I just found out that I will have a new great grand child next August. Since we already have two boys 4 and 5, I am hoping for a little girl, but will be happy with either.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Thanks

 Richard "great grand child" #3? that is so wonderful to be able to watch 3 generations make their way through life.

 So now there are many new busnuts for you to mentor and help. JUST in your own family :)

 For now my oldest and her husband live with us. So baby Eva (13 months) is my sunshine for each day. In another
 3 months or so she can start helping me with the bus. I've always included the kids in with what ever I was doing.
 For that both daughters are better welders and mechanics than their husbands :) (probably better welders than me)

Skip,

Merry Christmas and Congratulations on the new Grandbaby.

Probably, like You, if the bus was the only thing I had to deal with it would be completed already.

But all that stuff called "Your Life" gets in the way sometimes  :-\  ;)

Well both get done, someday!

Best of the Holidays to You and Yours

I went through the same thing one year ago on the 21st, my fifth grandbaby. We were able to see him last week, real good looking boy, kinda like his grandpa.  ::)

It is a good feeling to see your grandchildren grow up, just wish we lived closer to them all. We have some in AZ and CA.

Merry Christmas to You and Yours,

Paul
