Well, that explains a lot. LOL.

Jim and Sandie said...

LOL - I really must remember this.

I kept hitting the "enlarge" button to see EXACTLY WHAT y'all had hung out to dry.. we, who like to be alone, need all the hints we can get ;-)

Sherry said...

So the white guy there on the left is "across the road"??

I knew there was a reason I wished I bought that bounder instead of the brave - I'd have two entry doors to hang my undies between.

Like your tire cover. But no matching ones for the rear tires???

Karen and Tony said...

Wow! I didn't realize that your RV was so BIG! We could park inside of it and you'd still have room for a party.

Teri said...

LOL, good job.

Donna K said...

Maybe if you washed them before you hung them out.....

Wanderin' said...

HAHAHA.... so funny.

The Good Luck Duck said...

LOL Donna! You're on fire!

Thanks, Teri. We hermits do what we must.

Yep, Sherry, he's way over there. Hindsight, eh? And, yeah, the matching one blew away so I tracked it down and showered with it.

Sharon, feel free to use this trick in your own home.

I felt you all should really know me a little better.

The Good Luck Duck said...

Karen and Tony, we're really long, 38.5 feet.

Ha, thanks Wanderin.

Gaelyn said...

So they don't want to camp next to you hillbillys huh? ;)

The Good Luck Duck said...

Gaelyn, they were clean and everything. I don't get it.

Sue Malone said...

Yeah, funny post, but Donna K wins the truly Laughing Out Loud prize!

The Good Luck Duck said...

I agree.

Luci & Loree said...

THAT is funny. Two years 4 members of our family got to go to Monterey in the RV for a wedding and thru errors the car rental agency made we got a Mercedes!!! I KNOW!!! I go to bed earlier than the youngsters do & coming down the steps to start a wonderful day i see the car covered with jeans & towels they were trying to dry. I mean, really??? You just can't take the redneck out of those guys!!!

The Good Luck Duck said...

Haha! Made even better by it being a Mercedes. I can see it all now.

Desert Diva said...

Nice "knickers!" ROTFLMAO! :-)

Janie and John said...

Love it!

The Good Luck Duck said...

Thanks Janie & DD! *does little bloomer curtsey*

TexCyn said...

Now I know why you bought a rig with two doors! Quite handy ;-)

turquoisemoon said...

OMG...har har har!!! Too funny...

Russ Krecklow said...

HA!! Now I know what to do with bloomers! I just broke down and bought some more undies for myself, since I was running out before laundry day came. Now I can make it without running around naked under my shirt.

The Good Luck Duck said...

Russ, we got so close to the wire that Annie bought herself emergency drawers while I was doing laundry. I think I scared her with my nonchalance. New bloomers are never a bad idea.

Cyn, I'm sure Dylan meant "answers" to be code for "panties."

Turquoise, what wouldn't have been funny is to have ignored the depletion. Going commando sounds wild and carefree, but it chafes.

Karen and Al said...

How funny....but you just disproved MY blog post today!

I just KNEW women would always hide their undies!

squawmama said...

sooooo funny ~ LOVED it!
Have fun
Donna

Wanderoke said...

My OCD would want those grouped by color....then by length...

The Good Luck Duck said...

Karen, that IS funny! If we were in some "civilized" place like an RV park, I would never, ever get away with this, even if the park allowed it.

Ha - thanks Donna!

Ish, is it not enough that I segregated the socks? It may be just as well that you don't hang your bloomers out on the line, then.

Carole DeAngeli said...

What a great plan! Whatever works!

The Good Luck Duck said...

Thanks, Carole. And, it must have because I took in the wash and now we have TWO neighbors!

kim said...

as usual, beautious pictures, we want to be you! Me personally would love to communicate with you about composting toilets... obviously not a conversation in a comment! So if you'd like to be my sounding board around said subject matter... can you email me? kim@airstreamdreaming.com.. pretty please, i promise not to ask tooo many questions!

The Good Luck Duck said...

Kim, one thing that is true here is that composting toilets are ALWAYS appropriate conversation topics. I sent you an email!

longdog2 said...

Your plan would have been far more effective if they were all white and cotton!

¡Vizcacha! said...

I just pictured it in my head, and I think you're right.

Late, I know but I'm surprised no one came up with "Tibetan Prayer Flags" angle. I'm not great with comedy, but there is a joke in there somewhere...
I have really enjoyed catching up on your blog. Hours of pure fun and laughter!
Thanks for that.

Jeanette said...
