New Augusta Paint & Truck

Well I saw a photo of the new full body paint scheme on the Heartland Owners forum tonight and it was posted by the Landmark and Bighorn Product Manager so I guess if they can show it, so can I. Here are a couple of photos showing the new paint scheme. Awesome!! This model is the Oakmont, not the Augusta, but with the same pait scheme.

It is Gray, Silver and Burgundy, with a little white around the burgundy swirls. We are so anxious to get it.

We did buy a (new to us) truck today. It is a 2005 Ford crew cab Diesel with a short bed. It looked dark stone gray at the lot, but when Mac went and got it today it looks like a dark brown hope it looks ok with the 5er. It already has the tow brake system built into the dash and the bed has the spray liner in it. It also has the receiver for the 5th wheel hitch...all decked out with options like auto start, seat warmers..and more. ...WoooHooo!!

I guess we are all set, if our 5er ever gets

Well I am having some minor toe surgery tomorrow. They are removing my toenail from my big toe on the right foot...ouch! I have to be off my feet for 3 days, so I did some of my Christmas cooking tonight while on chat...multi-tasking. We ordered a roasted turkey and spiced apples and pumpkin pie so I only have to make the stuffing, potatoes, gravy and broccoli/rice/cheese casserole and one more low sugar dessert. Going to try to make part of that in the morning before going to the hospital.

Mac has a doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon in Olathe after he gets me home and settled in. This one is for the Ear Nose and Throat doctor for the surgery he had last week on his vocal chords. He is also going to check with his other surgeon about getting an appointment for a follow-up from his hernia repair surgery. He has been having some trouble recuperating from that surgery and has quite a bit more pain than he thought he would. so we will see what they have to say.

Well, if we don't see or talk to you before....Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away...

I love the 5ver! It's a beautiful design and color, and I hope you are in it soon.

Good luck on your surgery and also with Mac's recuperation. They usually don't tell us how bad it is really going to hurt, and then send us home to wonder if we are ever going to feel better. I'm thinking of you both, and hope you have a happy Christmas.
