Now our front door doesn't close all the way. I was concerned about it put a hundred foot run from our porch to flag pole for the dogs. Our lab would do a flying leap and slam the door hard like a linebacker. "I want in!" I was worried she'd break the fancy long oval with scroll work glass window but no biggie she always hit double fisted to the side, had to wash her muddy paw work off it but no biggie. Then she blasted the whole framework out. Tightened screwed and glued it back together but not tight enough apparently unless you lock the deadbolt there is a big gap. Sometimes they lock it and sometimes they don't. Come home from work, Hey you left the front door open, what do you mean? Its not locked..So..
You can feel a breeze if it isn't locked. It's 10 degrees outside.
I think I need to start waterboarding them :lau
Ha! Until they are all out of the house... and you lose that dog... no way will you have properly closing doors...or doors that get closed! :gig

Just so pretty! DH traveled there a couple times for work. Wish I had tagged along. Ah well, his retirement is end of February, so maybe we can go for fun soon. Been wanting to go to Canada too.

Our young cattledogs do that in the utility room, @penny1960. Luckily we painted it with high quality washable paint so all I have to do is give it a scrubdown with soapy water about every other week.

@Alaskan. Those pictures are gorgeous. Moose in the back yard. I mean how cool is that. All we see here is the occasional fox, deer or turkey in our yard.

We're trying to decide if we're getting a 5th wheel or not. I'm more of a Marriott girl myself. :lau
Id go with the fifth wheel... You can still do a Marriott day or two. Win Win. But the beauty of the fifth wheel is freedom to stop and rest anywhere. You dont have to pack and unpack everytime. And you know the sheets are clean or only have you on them, the food in the fridge is a big savings as well. Sort of like a cruise ship but on land.... LOL...

Now if you could only pack a maid for the trip you would have it made. :gig

You know I was reading that last night. and was thinking ... Hmmm I bet there is a way to protect the walls. Some sort of Wainscotting Like you would use in bathrooms... but You hit it on the head... Washable paint... Duh slapping my forehead.
