This week has just been hell on wheels. Guest have just hit every button. First guess breaks beach chairs But kind enough to replace chair with a cheap one , Won't last but least he replaced chair. Then next one breaks a leather chair he broke the back right off. Spent 2 days trying to find a replacement or some one to fix it. No one now a days fixes any thing. We are sadly a throw  a way life. Two days of traveling 200 km . Trying to fix this .HE DID NOT EVEN SAY SORRY !one leather chair for garbage.

 Yesterday we found a chair to replace it. But sadly it is not one that small women will be able to sit in and have her feet touch the floor. Which the old one worked for short people. But at least it is leather also and it also reclines.

The old one he actually broke the whole darn frame of the chair. I just could not believe he could of done such a wonderful job in breaking it. When this guest left us they took all the coffee and tea pods  also grrrr.

Sorry about that, I hate when that happens. It's unfortunate, but not much is made to last anymore. I wish it was. But to not even apologize? Shameful!

PS: We just got parents arrive with an 18 month old... we take children only over 7! Ugh!

I am sorry you are having such a naff time - trouble is with the DVD's they are probably in a laptop somewhere grrr people just don't think! but all the costs add up especially the breakages.

I went mad this year as bought 2 new tub chairs for room 2 within 2 weeks one had a high heel put through it - neither DH or the chamber maid noticed or reported it to me so have no way of knowing who it was to charge them! was furious!

Sorry Flower!  Flower - THANKS for thinking of us shorties!  While I do wish sometimes to be 10 again, the feeling of dangling feet as I (try to) relax or eat is desired.

Sorry you had such clods. I do hope they go back to staying at hotels. Hotels deserve people like that.

Gee thanks all. I am just beaten down this year has been a big year for so bees. Early this morning we discovered 4 brand new movie CD are gone. Man oh man. Think this is an expensive year. Bad booking and low bookings. 

Oh well two more months then we are off to  for the big trip down to SC . so Iam hanging on to that fact. It will take us a month to get there. I have so longed to see it again. We are leaving Bc in Oct  some time and travel across USA to the east then down south then across and who knows where after that. We have been saving for years to do a big trip and we are not getting any younger so now or never. I am holding on to that every time I have these people  means more money to spend.

Sorry this is happening to you....

When you lend out a DVD, borrow something of theirs, like car keys. Here, we can make legal backup copies, but I'm not sure you can, there. So I would borrow something of theirs to ensure getting it back.

Good idea. But they all are in their suites. Both suites have about 36 movies to choose from .

Maybe it's time to only put in some old movies and telling them to see you at the main house for newer titles, which are more likely to find a new home.

Not necessarily, we just found an empty case for Forrest Gump.  crying    Here if they want new releases they can go to red box which many do.  Funny, I haven't had anyone leave a redbox rental behind!

You know, maybe if you put a price tag on them that is higher than what a replacement will cost. With something like...

Want to take it home?
$25 and this DVD is yours.
Take it and we'll bill you!

Tornados have been making a nasty habit of coming any time of year, but tornado season starts around mid-March and goes through September.

I'm not far off I-70 in Indiana if your route changes.

That describes a perfect circle around Arkansas and the rest of the heart of the country.

Tornados are so rare that should absolutely not be a consideration. In a country this big, to be in the exact spot, on the exact day one hits is like trying to pick the $500 million lottery number. You're MUCH more likely to have a snake bite you or have a bridge collapse under your motor home, but don't worry, that won't happen either!

I've lived her 50+ years and never known anybody who saw a tornado, or suffered a snake bite, or saw a bridge collapse! The news only reports the rare stories, not everyday life.

Oh we just might swing that way too. At this point we are looking . First stage of planning. It take us a while of searching and deciding just what we would like to see and what is going to be around us and open.
