Happy Memorial Day From Seaside, Oregon

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Seaside RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. My current scheduled departure date is June 4th.

Mary returned from her trip to Turkey on May 5th. She now finds herself awash in personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc.. After a long discussion we have agreed she will now meet me July 26th in Bellingham, Washington. When we met in 2008 we both knew that she might run into situations like this and agreed that she would travel with me on a part-time basis. She has thanked me for not pressuring her to return at an earlier date. We all have to do, what we have to do in this world.

Happy Memorial Day!

Today we pause to remember our Veterans. I’ll be attending a memorial service at American Legion Post #99 here in Seaside, Oregon at 11:00 AM. What will you be doing today to remember our veterans? I am proud to have served our country.

Yesterday while on YouTube I accidentally came across this short video of my old ship USS Boston – CAG-1, the World’s first heavy guided missile cruiser. I served aboard her from 1959-1962 as a Radarman…

Here’s the only photo I still have from my Navy days taken at Amsterdam, Holland in 1960…
Sailor HJ Jaillet 1960

This photo of me was taken November 9, 2013. What a difference 54 years make… 🙂 I’m glad I’m still around to have my photo taken…many of our vets are not…


In addition to being a member of the American Legion Post #25 in Cottonwood, Arizona,  I am also a Life Member of VFW post #4224 in Baker, Louisiana. You can read about my last visit there on March 18, 2013 by clicking this link… https://otrwjam.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/baker-louisiana-day-8/

In honor of those veterans no longer with us, here’s a video about the history of TAPS…

Yesterday was a cloudy/rainy day at 61 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny at 60 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
