Migraines Suck… Vintage Campers Don’t

Did anyone miss week seven’s 4Day Challenge? No? Me either. I might ought to keep that tid-bit to myself, but it is what it is and that’s that. I’ve been suffering a migraine that started the day I should have posted the challenge. Even now, the day after I should have posted the reveal, I am only just beginning to experience the slightest relief. To my readers who suffer this condition, I have the utmost empathy for you. Of my readers who have never experienced the anguish of a genuine migraine headache, I envy you but I hope you’re enviable status in this case never changes. I don’t think any of us who suffer from migraines would wish this condition on any living creature. (To be honest, there is one living creature upon whom I would bestow this agonizing condition, but that’s a different post altogether, so I’ll save it…)

Whenever cluster of these headaches chooses the wee hours of the morning to release its death-grip on my grey-matter, as it has done this morning, I try to occupy my mind with happy thoughts and engage in activities which are neither mentally nor physically demanding and won’t disturb my family’s rest. Today I found those happy thoughts on a laptop screen set to the least bright setting available and on the pages of Pinterest under the search string “vintage campers.”

On of the big, big items on my bucket list is to purchase and restore or (even better) totally remodel and modernize a vintage, bumper-pull camper and I’ve decided to share my dream with you. Hopefully by sharing these happy thoughts they will multiply and help keep the headaches under control.

Just for kicks, I’ll make it a TOP TEN list…

I hope you will post your Pin-loved favorite vintage camper boards in the comments.

Craigslist Weekly Treasures

One of my frequent online diversions is searching the local edition of Craigslist.org. Dallas/Fort Worth is a rich market for both trash and treasure alike and I’m certain to find a handful of neat offerings every time I browse the site.

Here’s a sample of treasures, my top ten, uncovered on Craigslist this past week. What do you think? See anything you could find a use for? Please share your thoughts in the comments or show off some of the awesome finds in your local edition.

I know, I know… I should have noted all of the prices; I’ll do better next week.
