Vintage Travel Trailers

Vintage Travel Trailers

I got online tonight and found these beautiful gems. They are so cute, so miniature. I even found some sites of women who travel in caravans in restored campers like these. Of course, I'm not the size lady who could do anything other than step inside (being careful not to bump my head) and look around. Now my friend, Joy, could go in, sit, stand, lay down, turn around...and she's petite! Wow, how did anyone stand it. But, anyway, that is probably why these fascinated me. Sort of like doll houses. And the people who restore these! Wow, what a good job! I love the retro, jet set, Jetson's look of some of these.

The teardrop seems to be fashionable to restore, as are Airstreams.

This is so Jules Verne "Twenty Thousands of Leagues Under The Sea".

Melinda's First Christmas

Here is Melinda's first Christmas. I was 4 yrs old when Melinda was born so I'm a little less than 4 1/2 here. Elaine is 2 yrs old. See our matching dolls? Melinda is sitting in the 1960's version of the baby seats. She kept that black and white teddy bear until it fell apart.

Lee on Christmas

Lee had a sad Christmas this year. He got a terrible cold on Sunday and has been sick all week. He missed Christmas Eve and Christmas day and we sure missed him too! It's been hard for him to work with this terrible cold. So far he and his Mother have had it, Elaine and Ronnie had it, I had it (although not as bad as everyone else). I hope no one else in the family gets it because it's a bad one.

This picture was taken on a Christmas morning. Lee got his John Deere tractor. Luke got one too on the same Christmas. They loved them and the pedal tractors got a workout between the three kids.

Luke and Jenny

Here is Luke on a Christmas morning with his newe John Deere tractor and wagon. He and Lee loved their John Deere's and they all three participated in pedal tractor pulls until their legs were too long.

For the first time, we had Christmas without Luke and Jenny. Kyle and Jenny had to work and so they celebrated their first Christmas at home in Charleston. Luke joined the Air Force and is in boot camp in Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX. They both called and that helped us over the holiday. But it was still sad, especially for Elaine and Ronnie, not to have them home.

Luke called to say it was tough but he was making it. Although he's missing everyone, he said he has no regrets. I hope that's true because I want him to be happy. Anyway, his head has been shorn and he has his fatigues. He said the drill instructors were waiting for the bus and started yelling immediately. Kyle had warned him about that. He did go to the Contemporary Baptist Christmas Eve service and told his Mom he really enjoyed it although he got teary eyed when they sang Christmas carols because he knew his family would be doing the same thing at the Harris family party.

Jenny called. She was covered up with customers on Christmas Eve (she works at the Mall) but she called us after work and we all passed the telephone around and talked to her. Wonder what she got for Christmas?

Here is the first 5 Grandchildren (out of 9) at the Harris family Christmas Eve party. From Left to Right, standing: Evans, Luke, Joshua. From Left to Right, Sitting: Jacob, Jenny.
