Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Yuma, Arizona. I was expecting to leave here recently, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.
I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!
Today’s subject: Inauguration Day – 2017
Today is a most unique day in United States history.
A total of 23 (6 Democrats and 17 Republicans) people formally entered the 2017 presidential race. Like any race (other than a dead tie), there can only be one winner. The winner of this particular race was Donald J. Trump, who today will become the 45th President of the United States.

In a few short hours, to become the President, he will take a solemn oath with his hand on a bible and say the following words…
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
The words “So help me God” appear optional…

It will be interesting to observe if Donald J. Trump elects this option. Regardless of whether he chooses this option or not, here’s hoping he truly believes these words and will act accordingly.
I have traveled extensively in the United States and for years have been telling people I meet…“We live in such a beautifully scenic country, it is really a shame what politicians have done to it!” I, for one, am ready to give a businessman like Donald Trump a chance to see if he can do a better job!
One of our most beautiful patriotic songs is America, The Beautiful. It is also the music in my two-minute travel video, which I created in 2012, of my RV travels in the United States. If you’ve not seen it, here it is…
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!
I hope you enjoyed today’s subject.
Yesterday was mostly cloudy and 67 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly cloudy with a chance of a shower and 64 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!
