We've spent almost two months in Tucson now. Our third winter here now. Not so much in tourist mode now.

We continue our tradition of purchasing furniture in Arizona. This time we replaced the rickety RV chairs in our dining section [room is too grandiose] with normal chairs.

We also returned to the Sonora Desert Museum for a stroll through the aviary and a meal at the cafe.

Now we begin a round of theater and dance events at the University and elsewhere. [No, we' re not dancing. We are not lithe nor supple.] A little Argentinean tango here, some Columbia dance there, and a play by the Second City comedy troupe. Pretty soon, we got culture!

Oh yeah, don't forget the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. It rocks!

Otherwise, we sit around, typing and looking at the desert. A little shopping, some [a lot of] eating. Mostly we just enjoy the days without snow. After all, we're on vacation. Soon enough we will return to our jobs at our Park Sierra.

New RV

After looking at the several RVs mentioned in my most recent post, we decided to sell our truck and trailer and just go simple. Besides, Jenna has wanted a car for years now. And Bruce wants Jenna to be happy.

Better fuel economy, no more crummy RV furniture. This one has it all.

RVs - Just Lookin'

We are still looking at new RVs. Not to buy one...exactly. Since we live in our RV, and travel in our RV, we run the risk of crashing our RV. Instantly changing our status from "affluent homeless" to just "homeless." Which is not why we retired.

In such an event, we should already know what we want to buy for a new home. Similar to looking for a house, one must examine a lot of factors. Tho I don't remember considering the axle rating of any of our nine houses.

Jenna is in her element. I am in my withdrawal.

Jenna burns up her new laptop, looking at manufacturers' websites and studying the RVConsumer database. I walk the dog.

This month, we toured fifth wheels on dealer lots in Tucson. Had a brief infatuation with the Redwood line, till we decided it wasn't built well enough for year round living. We are now considering the Hitchhiker "Discover America" line. Twelve floor plans and a page of options - oy.

We want to see a new Excel too, to learn how much they have improved the quality of construction and features. Hard to find one with so few dealers. Biggest strike against Excel is the wood construction, which adds weight. The others have aluminum frames, thus weigh less.

I apologize to readers without RVs. I lost interest after paragraph #2.

The System Works!

So I called the owner of about using my RV picture on his website. [See 1/7/12 post.] He was quite surprised and contrite. He promised to find out who violated their practice of paying for such pictures.

He sent me a gift certificate for my troubles. Very nice resolution of an otherwise nasty business. Now I must look for other work for my law firm.

To Ric and John, whom I credit this unexpected windfall, I promise a finders fee on all bribes received from my prior post. And the thanks of a grateful nation for maintaining integrity in an otherwise corrupt Capitalist System.

Bruce, the Wealthier

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Plagerism

Today our friends inquired whether we are selling our RV now. Seems that they saw a picture of our truck and trailer on a sales website.

In the masthead. Like this.From this post no doubt.

Looks like our financial troubles are over, what with the multi-million dollar lawsuit and all. Once I own this business and fire all the staff, I'll hand out used RVs to people who have been nice to me in some big way.

For those who have not already taken this step, do not despair. It's not too late to start now. Consult my Amazon Wish List. The BIG one. Or just search for RV or Automotive products over $50,000.

It's the right thing to do. For me.

We thank you...someday.
