The one thing that I most dislike about this time of year is holiday shopping.
So you can imagine Jennifer's surprise this afternoon when I actually volunteered to drive her to the mall to look up some Christmas gifts.
I took my Roadtrek Class B RV motorhome.
Heh heh heh.
It's a diesel, so it needs to be exercised from time to to time. That was my verbalized excuse. But the truth is, I was lonesome for it. And sometimes, I feel pretty silly just sitting out in it in the driveway.
So off we went.”Take your time, honey,” I said as Jennifer got out to go shopping. I stayed in the Roadtrek.
I flipped on the battery and fired up the heater. Snow was spitting outside but I soon was toasty warm inside. I turned on the TV, sprawled out on the rear sofa and watched some football as I again bonded with my RV.
I was parked in a regular mall spot. Couldn't have done that in a Class A or Class C motorhome. Made my wife happy. Reconnected me with my RV.
A win-win for both of us. Now if only my Detroit Lions would win.
