It's Raining
I love the sound of rain on the roof of the Motorhome. So cozy. All we need is a fireplace. hmmmm, that probably wouldn't be such a good idea huh? I'm feeling better today. Yesterday I was moping and feeling sorry for myself because I sprained my ankle the day before. Gotta be careful walking down those steps out of the Motorhome - it's not always level ground on the last step! But, it's feeling much better today. Jim taped it up just like he used to do for the wrestling guys in high school. Pretty good job.

Since we will be leaving Florida today, we needed to change our cell phone plans. As soon as we cross the state lines, we would be in 'roaming' with our current plan. What a challenge! We have Verizon phones because our research indicated that they had the best coverage nationwide. That may be, but we certainly found the 'holes' already. In Salt Springs we had no service at all. Here at Suwannee river, we are in 'roaming' territory - and the reception is pretty bad. Our current 'Florida' plan doesn't have any 'roaming' charges, but the 'America's Choice' plan that we just switched to WILL charge us .69/minute when we're not in Verizon coverage areas. So, what to do when we're not in Verizon coverage area? Sometimes, we will just be unavailable. But there are some calls, like the Wi-Fi support calls that Jim handles, where we need to talk. We might buy a phone card and use pay phones .. or we might actually buy another cell phone on another network - Cingular or t-Mobile, just for those occasions.

So what do we do on a rainy morning? C'mon, you don't really need to ask:
