7AM - Keeping it simple
Awhile back we wrote to you about a new under-chassis storage space that was being considered. This storage would consist of a large box that would drop down from the right-rear. Never mind how this storage box would be secured while traveling. Because we are abandoning this storage box idea!

Why were we needing this additional storage? We had accumulated additional stuff. Mainly, two additional flight bags into which we had put even more stuff. We have decided to donate all this stuff to the Catholic church located in the main Tequisquiapan plaza. The church will be able to sell our stuff for money.

It takes thinking for us to keep our life simple. It's too easy to fall into the trap of accumulating stuff. Once we give away our two flight bags with all the un-needed stuff inside them, things inside MsTioga will be sooooo neat and un-cluttered!

10AM - But I do need a credit card!
Just now I completed an online credit card application with my bank, Bank of America. Because I have not used any credit for many years, I have no credit history. I have only used debit cards. However, during my recent trip to California, I was refused a rental car. Most rental car companies ONLY accept credit cards. Not debit cards.

I need a credit card!

So, I applied for a secured credit card. This is a credit card backed up by a deposit that I make with Bank of America. Now I will be able to have a credit card when I need it. Pretty neat, huh?

Weird that after all these years of having excellent credit, borrowing for several houses, etc., that I would come to a place in my senior years where I have to re-build my credit. I remember my very first credit card back in 1955. I was only 17 years old and applied for a gasoline credit card from Union Oil. No problem! My Union Oil card came in the mail a few weeks later.

2PM - Olympic games
MsTioga and the TiogaRV Team moved to central Tequis in order to get a stronger WiFi signal and be able to watch the Olympic games.

5PM - How do you know?
Somebody with a blog asked me, "I never know what to write about in my blog. How do you know?"

That's a very good question! I've made over 3,300 blog posts. And one of the things that I like most about posting is, that I hardly ever know in advance what I am going to write about. In fact, I believe that writing my blog is exactly like living my life. In both cases, I have no clue what is coming next.

I believe that it's supposed to be that way.
