The Real Deal

The internet is totally screwed around here! More later.

Here's the deal on the internet. Ever since Christmas the internet here has been up and down and now its almost non existent. I'm likely at the American Legion now trying to take care of all of my internet business. I don't know what caused the problem at the Motor Inn and no one else seems to know either. Maybe a lot of people got new computers for Christmas and Big Bend Telephone doesn't have the resources to deal with it? What ever the reason it is a real posterior chapper!

As far as the stuff I have in storage in Odessa... It will be making its way down here around the 14th with my sister and brother in law. That will be one more bill out of the way. Then on about the 14th I hope to have living accommodations on the land where I can be out of this RV and that will be the biggie as far as dropping the bills that have been holding me back.

I do have another snag now that could bite me though and that is the registration on the Falcon and trailer. Both expire tomorrow and although I sent in the renewal over two weeks ago I've still not received the new stickers. Matter of fact they haven't even cashed my check yet so I don't know what's going on? If I get stopped driving with the outdated stickers that could be more $ out of my pocket that I could use to build with. Fortunately I THINK??? I have about 10 days of grace before a ticket would stick, but I'm sure there would still be the hassle of getting it taken care of. Looks like the old Got Ya's haven't given up on me yet.


  1. Tffnguy,
    Looks like you are on your way now. That's one thing off the list.

  2. Yeee Haaa!!! Boy Howdy are we mak'n some progress now. Got a brand spank'n new house sit'n on the ranch full of furniture, refrigerator, stove and central heat. That what I talk'n bout!!!

  3. Excellent! The homestead has now officially begun.

    To Mr Thorne and all the regulars on this blog I wish you a safe and happy New Year! Cheers!

  4. Updated this thread since the internet at the BBMI is totally screwed. I'm at the American Legion now having a cool one so I can take care of internet business. Might have to have another one or three. I'm working slow. Just got through emptying my trailer in the container and trying too keep enough room left over for me. Looks like I'll be renting a storage building to because all of the stuff in Odessa plus what is in there now ain't going to cut it. At least the stuff will be here and will be less that half the price of the storage there.

    Happy New Year to you and everyone else Scavenger.

    BB you're getting a little carried away with the amenities! That will take at least an hour or so. ;)

  5. Had to check the picture twice to make sure it was the real thing. I am glad you finally got your storage container.

    As far as the registration I think they give you a five day grace period. But you are in the middle of nowhere so I don't think you have to worry about getting a ticket.

    David may you have a very happy and prosperous New Year, as well as all of your readers.

  6. MsBelinda, On the way back from the AL I stopped at the mailbox and the registration for both were in it. One less thing to worry about.

    Happy New Year to you to.
