Tip of the day
Dog paws and hot pavement – Not good!
We found this posted on a Facebook group, and felt it was important. The author of the post wrote:
“While in Las Vegas, Nevada these past few days, I’d notice people walking their dogs in the middle of the hot day on the roads around the campground. I stopped them and asked them to take their off their shoes to see how hot the roads were. After that I noticed all of them walking their dogs at night. Come on people, ‘THINK’!! It’s sad to see how many people don’t think of this.”
(EDITOR’S NOTE: Is there such a thing as “doggie shoes” that could be used on hot days when a brief walk of Fido might be necessary? Respond below if you know.)

RV club of the day
Fulltime Families strives to provide education for families as they jump into the world of RVing. It also provides opportunities for families on the road to make deep and meaningful connections. This is all done through members-only Facebook groups, special events, clubs for the kids, and smaller, more specialized communities called “branches”.

Leave here with a laugh
For his birthday, an 80-year-old man’s nephews secretly hired a call girl for him. When he answered the door she was standing there in a slinky black dress. She said, “I’m here to give you super sex.”
After thinking for a minute the old man replied, “I guess I’ll have the soup.”
