Difficult decisions, difficult times

Difficult decisions, difficult times

The Vees Big Adventure is up in the air, free-falling, and we are devastated. Due to circumstances beyond our control and unscrupulous RV dealers, the costs to repair the RV properly (despite us being told by the salesman AND the technician that it had a […]

Irma versus The Vees

Irma versus The Vees

Alright! Just a quick update on our RV situation: The RV centre finally got in touch on Friday and said our little Brave was ready for pickup – Monday afternoon! Hooray! And then we put the phone down and looked at each other and realised […]

Gathering the Goods

Gathering the Goods

Things are getting “real” here in the Vee household! Our RV is in the “queue” for the full check out “check-out”; we pick up our gorgeous old Jeep in a couple of weeks time; we’ve sold Erika. We were heartbroken; both of us near tears, […]

Two Sides

Two Sides

Heading into winter, my favourite season of the year, there are two sides to it and I embrace both equally passionately: The Cold and Dark, and the Warm and Comfy.  I am just as happy to be out in the cold air, in a dark […]

Poor little Azzie

Poor little Azzie

My poor little Azzie monster, she got herself another hot spot AND an ear infection at the same time, in BOTH ears. Thanks, Georgia summer. This hot spot was so enormous that the vet was astounded at the size of it. They had to sedate […]
