Whilst hosting our 'Show Me The Money' yard sale today, someone spotted our Trillium and asked for an impromotue tour. I said yes, but you'll need to excuse the mess, we are getting ready for our semi-anual trailer meet.

The Trailer Goddess gave the yuppy duo a 25 cent tour and the remark the girl/lady said REALLY made me laugh she called (what we do) it "GLAMPING". I asked her what that was and she replied, "its, GLAMor camPING, Glamping"!!!!!

So, my new word of the day is "Glamping".

Every new word needs at least two definitions.

Glamping: 2. Glass camping

It's a real made up word and started out as:
Glamorous Camping

It's further defined as "A range of cushy tents and designer accessories has created a popular new kind of outdoor holiday: "glamping," short for glamorous camping" Here's a Newsweek article: Fluffing It

We're better than that!

That was thoughtful of you, Doug.

I have one question, though. Living atop an iron mountain, does your compass point down?

Morgan, I don't own a compass cause quite often I can't figure out whether I'm going/coming or even if I was 'there' once before!

We're sooo poor living waaaay up here on the Mt.Top that we can't even aFord to PAY ATTENTION, let alone own a compass LOL!!!!

ok. Since I'm toying with the idea of moving my canine massage business into my Casita and going mobile, does that put me over the edge?

I already have the prayer flags, of course the mud will have to come off to be truly glam! Or I could use it for facials!

and of course the Moon Doggie herself, Phoebe
