OK...time for a vote

Hands down, it has to be Lyndon Laney's mailbox and barking dog. :thumb

Close runner-up would be Al V's spare transmission and clutch. :feet

Way down on the list would be Charles' hand saw. I know what he uses it for; to cut down all the trees around his camp site. :steer

Get your votes in; we can't have an undecided election.

It's a tie so far

Okay, I gotta tell ya, that transmission thing really is nudging close to first. But, there is one other one that isn't on the list. I cannot believe Lyndon didn't enter his window box on the rear of his Scamp 5er. Course, I do like the mail box, a lot, and if you can only have one entry....

I don't know, I haven't decided yet.

Oh man, a whole replacement transmission??

That would come in handy.

Years ago, on move-in day at our daughter's college dorm, the transmission on my old Suburban gave out, waiting our turn to pull into the parking lot.

The officer directing traffic said we were blocking traffic but he wouldn't help, so I had my wife and daughter push the Suburban, while I steered it, into a parking place.

Oh man! We moved our youngest daughter into her dorm yesterday.She didn't even want us to take a camera to get a picture on the front steps. We did it at home with the loaded pick-up.
Real life can give us more ways to embarass our kids than we could ever dream up. Mind you they've given us all a fair share over the years as I'm sure we did to ours, although my mother has been kind enough not to remind me.

I dunno if it's "that" unusual, but I have an obsession with stir fry. I love it. I tried in the trailer but it really smoked it up and stank for a few days. Woks have to be REAL hot. I then took the side burner off of my old gas grill when I tossed it and now use it as an outside wok burner. Anyways, I was camping a few years back and this small kid wanted to know what kind of a weird frying pan I had. I told him and he went to his folks and said I had a pan that walked. Most times while I'm stir-frying my neighbor campers wander over to see whats on the menu.

A small plastic pink flamingo, complete with propeller wings that spin in the wind.

Are we talking about trailer items only?

Cause this summer I'll embark on a several thousand mile journey with 4 screaming parrots and a pouting Husky/Shepherd mix.

Last time I did this it was with one bird and the dog for 5,000 miles in a Corolla. Going in a Trillium with my Forester will be like moving up to the penthouse suite from the No-name Drive-by Motel.

My better half tells me that we don't carry a bush rake ... we carry a shrub rake

Since she's the one who knows how to work it, I expect she's right, so I did an internet search for "shrub rake" and sure enough, a bunch popped up. We bought it years ago at a hardward store.

This is similar to our small little rake (bush or shrub), and shows the size compared to regular rake. Makes it real easy to tuck in the tow vehicle for quick access should a mess arise.

Thank you, Charles!

I knew you were the one who suggested the rake, but when I reread that God Made the People thread, I couldn't find it.

You do this kind of thing (keep parallel topics going) just to see if I'm on my toes, don't you!!

:jester

About 6 years go I had the Alumabox parked for a few seasons in a campground. My Mom as a joke got me a set of pink flamingos. She put them out and I complained to everyone who would listen, but I wouldn't remove them because she had put them there. Funny thing... they began to mate. Some of the other seasonals began putting old broken pink flamingos around my new ones. By the time I pulled my rig out two years ago I had 31, yes 31 pink plastic flamingos in various stages of repair. Whole ones, and most missing leg(s), heads, wings, tails, beaks, etc. My last night there, around 3am, I took them all over to my best friends trailer, who had constantly ribbed me about my collection, and placed them all over his campsite, with an addition... I bought one of those fat lady bending over with her pantaloons showing lawn ornaments dead center of the collection. Ahhhhh, payback :ola

A toddler and...

His beloved Thomas the Tank Engine set put together just for the Casita. Enough trains, track and even a train table to keep him occupied just long enough for us to cook up a meal. ;)
