Another Month Passed

I know it is not very often I get to post in here anymore, I just come in occasionally to give the world the bit of an update now and then. I still do not have a computer, just the tablet, so my time on here is limited. I sent out Christmas cards last week to those who wanted them, and to family and friends. They automatically get them! LOL! But I ask my Facebook friends if they would like to do Christmas card exchanges, and sometimes they say yes, sometimes they don't respond. Those that do not respond I assume they are not at all interested. So I don't send them a card. I ask every year though. Well, I have officially gotten my Christmas present from my sis. I'm getting along great with it too.

Well, another month has come to pass, and I am still loving my RV. I am just getting used to it. I spent the last 4 nights watching Rockstar: INXS. You know I did not even watch that series once the whole time I lived in Bozeman? It's better enjoyed when I don't have to cut in hour long breaks to go to the dog park and let my babies go potty. They keep me in too much suspense for that! LOL! Even though I have seen the series many times, the suspense is still there. The last time I tried to play that series, I just could not get into it. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that INXS chucked JD Fortune out of the band. That whole summer I feel was wasted! But it wasn't a total loss. I watch the series mostly for the music. I still am spellbound by the way Marty Casey sang Wish You Were Here. It still brings tears to my eyes! I love it. I just cannot believe that INXS wants to end it this way. In the series, JD was looking forward to writing songs with INXS for the next 20 or so years. I look back on those words now and I think "INXS didn't even last another 10 years!" And it's funny, the Rolling Stones just celebrated their 50th anniversary this past week. Surely if they can go on, then so can INXS. But INXS decided to give up. I'm kindof in a recessive period with INXS. I just don't get that excited about them anymore. It has nothing to do with their retirement. It's been building for quite a while. They're still my most favorite band, but I just don't get as excited about them as I did back in their touring days.

These recessive periods come and go with me. Sometimes they last a few days, sometimes a few months. Sometimes they even last a few years. I know that sounds strange, but it keeps my life interesting. I switch gears from one favorite subject to another. Now that I am home, I find I am getting more into the subject of Mount St. Helens, and other natural disasters. They can be scary, but they are also very fascinating. But to me, Mount St. Helens will always represent our state. It was because of that I always loved living here.

So what do you all think about 12/21/12? Do you think it will be the end of time? Everyone says it will be the end of time AS WE KNOW IT. Like there could be a lot of changes made to our world and some things will not be the same as we've always known. Maybe they will be good changes. I don't want to think they will be all bad. We already have war going on, and Obama is back in office. Those are enough to scare anyone into believing the end is near. I knew Obama would be back in office. It was inevitable. I don't even know why anyone held any doubt about that at all. Obama's supporters are so gullible, they believe he is the best candidate. Now, marijuana is legal in this state. You know what is going to happen, now all the druggies are going to move here and the crime rate all over this state will skyrocket!! And I live close to one of the crimecenters of this state. Bellevue is not too far from here, and they have the highest crime rate I believe in this state! It scares me to go out at night, even if it is just in my back yard. The other night, there was a woman just outside the fence, and she saw me and the dogs, and she was raging around all over the place. Sounded like she was stood up for a ride and she was pissed off because of that. She kept shouting "I need a ride!" and "Wanna give me a ride?!" But she sounded either like she was drunk or high on drugs! It was the middle of the night, I wasn't even coming close to giving her a ride anywhere! I just let the dogs talk to her. They barked at her. She didn't come near me then. hehe! In her stoned state, they probably looked like pit bulls to her.

Anna said that is the main reason she won't move back here. I told her that with Obama in office now, it won't be long before Montana legalizes marijuana! Anna said when that happens, we will move out of the country. I told her living in Australia would be nice. But I don't know. It gets hot there and I do mean HOT!!! Maybe Canada would be better. I used to want to move to the UK, but after seeing some of the wacked out people that live there (from YouTube), and hearing stories from people I know who have lived there about the crimes committed against them, I don't think I would like the UK very much. But I've always enjoyed Canada. BC is really nice. I've been there several times. Victoria Island is only 20 miles away from me, I haven't been there since I was in middle school. I'd love to move there. I remember the island was kindof old fashioned. They even had horse-drawn carriages. I got to ride one when we visited there and I enjoyed it. I'd never move to a place like Toronto, most people do, but I think I'd like to stay in the northwest. We have the prettiest mountains here. And some of the people I've met from the Toronto area (not all mind you, but some) were nasty and rude people. No different really from New York. But I liked BC. Might be fun living there.

Then there is the pet problem. Anna and I each have dogs, neither one of us are willing to give either of them up. People are not willing to accept a family that has 3 dogs readily. Though I was skimming the Craigslist pet forums one day and I saw someone posted that they managed to find an apartment in LA that allowed her to have 5 dogs (one of which was a pit bull) and 2 cats. I would have been very interested to know how she found a rental place like that! That is unheardof as far as I know. Unless that person exaggerated, or even lied. I cannot imagine any landlord that would be willing to accept a tenant that has 5 dogs and 2 cats. Its hard enough trying to find a landlord that would let us have 3 tiny dogs and no cats. Let alone 5 dogs, and one of which being a pit bull! I just don't really believe that person's story. I've looked far and wide, and most landlords will only allow either no more than 2 pets, or no pets at all. Even if they are tiny pets. If I were a landlord, I would sooner allow a tenant to have 3 tiny dogs than one cat. Cats are just as destructive as big puppies are. In their own way, but they are still just as destructive. That's one of the main reasons I don't have a cat. I get turned on by kittens as anyone (except for gray tabbies), and I may say I want one, but I've never gotten one yet. Fact of the matter is, I don't really want a cat. They're too destructive. Every time I used to have cats, they always tore up the house, and dirtied up everything. I even once had a cat that smeared it's shit all over the carpet! And this was a small cat! It was very fortuitous that I had a carpet shampooer at that time, and I was able to clean it all up. But after that I never wanted another cat again. I had a 100-pound german shepherd dog then too, and it was cleaner and a lot less destructive than that tiny cat was!

I see ads where landlords will accept a family with a cat, but not with a dog, and I say "My dogs would probably do a lot less damage to their house than someone's cat would". My dogs basically do nothing but eat and sleep. Minnie occasionally has accidents, but they are not that big, and they're very easy to clean.

Well, that's my views on that subject. I'm already tempted to move out because of the wave of crime that I am sure is coming my way. But I have to stay. Well, this area is nice. We'll discuss my moving sometime down the road. I'll just have to think about it. Never having lived in an RV before, there are some things about this that I am not aware of. I'm going to hit my share of snags and I understand that. I just hope that none are fatal.

Interesting post...but there really is nothing we can do about the crime rate. Its just the world we live in and that people are just getting crazier. You just hope and pray that your community has a good security system. But I have always found Port Angeles to be safe, but unless things have changed in the past 10 years, I dont know.
Living in an RV can be difficult sometimes, but I think its the best thing for you because you like to travel and not stay in one place for very long. Your just like me, adventurous.
I would love to visit Canada sometime. BC is really nice and pretty. I'd seen pics. I'd also like to go to Alberta too, its just north of here. Someday, I'm just gonna pack up the car and Odessa, and make a long trip up there.Now THAT would be cool!!! If I had a camera, I could take pics.
