I recently received a note from The Semper Fi Fund informing me of a donation from the Carolina Pelicans in memory of Tee.  She would have appreciated such a wonderful gesture since this was one of her favorite charities.  Likewise, this too is one of my favorite charities and my utmost thanks go out to each and every one of a group second to none.

If you’re not familiar with this charity, I encourage you to visit their website to see where your money is going  It has a 4 star rating from Charity Navigator with 94% of its revenue going to program services.

May God bless you,



Dear Carolina Pelicans,

Please forgive the tardiness of my response to all the phone calls, cards, letters, thoughts, prayers and any other way you may have reached out to me over this past year.  KNOW that as difficult as things have been, you have made a difference for my family and me with all the love and support extended by you.

Tee was so delighted when she was able to visit her Pelicans family even for a short period of time at Cypress RV Resort just a few weeks prior to the sudden downturn in her health.  The Pelicans have been a constant in our lives ever since that first meeting at Willow Tree RV Resort and for that I am eternally grateful.  Tee always said that there are some people in your life that it doesn’t make any difference how long it has been since you’ve seen them or talked to them—at your next meeting it’s as though you just spoke to them yesterday—the Pelicans, without a doubt, fall into that category.

I especially want to thank those who were able to attend the Celebration of Tee’s Life.  That part of my life is nothing but a blur so please cut me some slack if I did something that I shouldn’t have or didn’t do something that I should have.

I hope that you will continue to keep us in your prayers as this struggle continues.


2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Looking For TV Stars

John Reynolds and Gaye Young have sent out a request for FMCA members who would be willing to do a TV segment to promote FMCA.

Bob Billups has indicated that he would be willing.

For all of you Pelicans who would be willing to participate in such an endeavor, please submit your name, along with your F number, directly to John Reynolds.  His email is “”.

I will be in Pooler Ga doing some library work on behalf of my father at Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum. Do you know of any camping areas near Hilton Head , SC I’m considering boondocking at Camping World but looks like evenings might freeze. November 27th and 28th are the two nights I’ll be boondocking.
I am a Carolina Pelicans member in 2011.

2013 Dues


    Just wanted to let you all know that Harvey will be having a heart catherization on Wed, Aug 15 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, NC.
    He’s been short of breath, fatigued and just not feeling good — the cardiologist reviewed all his tests and aren’t sure exactly what is going on, but felt he was so symptomatic that he had to make sure.  The doc mentioned that he thinks a valve is not closing properly and that when the aorta pumps at rest that it causes a back pressure.  They will repair anything they find during the procedure.
    Keep us both in your prayers.
                                                   Love, Yvonne
