The old days

In the old days, after I bought MsTioga and became a vagabonding RVer, I hardly ever had slow days. Back then, whenever I felt like it, down the road I would go! Exploring! Searching for adventure.

Well, those old days are gone. I got just a bit too old for them. So, now I live in an apartment. When things feel slow for me now, I take my electric bike out and ride my La Mesa neighborhood. With me flying along on my bike, the breeze brushing my face, I feel a bit of the excitement of traveling. It may not be much. But its enough for me.

Cry baby!
This afternoon I watched a movie. It's title is "The Parent Trap". It's the story about twin sisters who were separated when they were babies. One lived with the father. The other with the mother. The knowledge of there being a twin kept very secret.

Then one day, they meet up accidentally. At a summer camp. The two girls hatch a plan to get their mother and father back together again. They switch places at the end of summer camp and return to the other's home. Each pretending to be the other twin sister.

There is a lot of emotional stuff going on in this movie. So much emotion, that for me I am crying like a baby when the various members of the family finally learn that the twin in their home is the "other" twin.

Wow! I loved this story! Click [here] to see trailer!


  1. Life was good with MsTioga but it sounds like life is good in your new apartment. Your electric bike sounds like so much fun.
    Keep enjoying life George.

  2. Happy to hear that you still have the Spirit of Adventure George, Keep on making New Adventurers for Yourself!

  3. Electric bikes are a blast, no?

    The trailer you refer to is for the remake of The Parent Trap with Lindsay Lohan in the lead. Far superior in my not so humble opinion is the original. The Parent Trap is a 1961 Walt Disney film. It stars Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara and Brian Keith Give it a looksee..

  4. Born and raised in La Mesa, it is a great place to live. Enjoy!

  5. I've seen 'em both. I prefer the remake.

  6. I remember that movie - I loved it, too!

    I have a couple of question.
