Thanks for the info Hobie. I may stop and check out the trailer but I am not interested in buying one.  My idea of camping involves a shower, an internet connection and room service! :)

My trailer has a hot shower and high speed internet connection. I have to supply my own room service though; That usually involves the campfire/bbq and roast duck with orange sauce... ;D

Dennis: Did you forget to add "and a nearby flea market?"

Hobie, your situation in more permanent.  I'm talking about those that pull a trailer (or tent) somewhere on the weekend.  I also know now that the Recreational Vehicles are pretty sophisticated and have all the amenities of home.

You're right Jorge, a nearby Flea Market is a must!!

Of course I wouldn't "go camping" if it wasn't more "permanent".  ;)

It was rather sad to see families enter the campground rather enthusiastically and then leave two or three days later looking even more tired. I never understood the idea of "weekend" camping. ;)

Funny old picture by Norman R.  The only person who has not changed a wit after the "fun" camping trip is grandma, who has her face set like flint both going and coming.  Even the dog looks beat on the way back home. 

We camped for a couple of days last summer, had not done it in years and years.  It was just like I remembered.  I know a lot of folks love it, and I get why as it's pretty fab to be out in the woods and nature and all.  But I'm more of an armchair nature lover.

Been awhile since this topic had any activity.  Thought I'd post a picture of my desk from a long shot instead of just up close.  Mine is the close one, my espositas is the far one.

Really neat set-up, Heath!  I remember your closeups of the desks, and now it's great to also see the whole room, in all it's classy modernist-mid-century-slightly googie-ish Heathesque glory. Thanks for posting your inspiring photo. It's all great, and I also especially like the fedora, lava lamp, and of course the phones.

So now I have to ask...What is the view out the big window?

Well I wish the view out the window was something really cool, like the Space Needle or Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls.  But it's pretty ordinary, as seen below, just a couple of ranch style houses.  The green house on the left was built in 1950, and the yellow one on the right in 1960, and ours in 1966.  Old folks live in the green and yellow houses, good people all.

Not a bad view at all, and fit's right in with your 1950s-60s motif. :)

Ha!  That was this afternoon, Jan 27th.  Winter is pretty much over for us, the lawn is even starting to come out of being dormant and the trees are budding.
