The One with the Exchange

So today started with a goodbye. We said farewell to one of the two-leggers' toys.

He is off to a new home in West Virginia with a new family. One with little two leggers who will use it 100 times more than my two leggers ever did. They even brought their MP3 player to test out the speakers! Papa was a little sad to see it go, even though it pretty much just took up room in the crowded garage. He is one of the final rides he took in it.

Later he took mom for a ride and she screamed with glee like she was on a roller coaster almost the whole way since he was going "too fast." Luckily I was inside or my eardrums surely would have burst.

With this extra cash in his pocket and the pending sale of the Globetrotter, we essentially traded this...

And this...

For this!

It's getting late and I'm smelling pizza so I'll include more pictures in a future post for all of you Airstream fans out there! And yes... we still have my favorite house on wheels - The Argosy. In fact, we're going to take it to what I'm told is a dog utopia in a few days!!

  2. We envy you because we think having an Airstream would be the coolest thing ever! Mom said she had one of those go carts when she was a kid. Her sister drove it through a livestock gate once and was scared witless of it, but Mom loved it and drove "like a bat out of hell" according to Grandpaw. She was very upset with him when he traded it to somebody for a new car for his girlfriend when she was in college.

  11. That go-cart thing looks like it'd be a lot of fun. I can see why your dad would be bummed to get rid of it. But it looks like you got a good trade for it.

    I keep hearing and reading about pizza the last several days. Now I'm craving some.

  12. Haha!! Your mom and dad sure do luvs their toys. But I'll take my toys over those any day. I mean, you can't really de-stuff a house on wheels. Well, I guess you COULD but boy, you'd prolly get in trouble for it.

    Oh, and I luved the pictures of the deer eating the apples! Now I want to gets one of those cameras. I bet it would just gets pictures of squirrels and maybe that fire-breathing raccoon.
