Roses are red, violets are blue, clicking the pics, may change your worldview.
I have no idea what the name of any of these flowers are, but I do know the season is drawing to a close, and the flowers are getting a bit ratty, as, by the way, am I.
Wrapping up my "things I can live without" posts, I only have one thing left to talk about, at least for now. It's something even I can't make up my mind on because it requires not only what I've done in the past, but what I may do in the future, and I've always had problems looking into my future because my idea of freedom is to come and go as I please, with as few plans, and schedules as possible.
So barely knowing what I'm going to do or where I'm going to be tomorrow makes figuring out what I'm going to be doing six months, or a year from now all but impossible.
So how can I determine if I actually need an Air Conditioner or not ???
Now I know those of you in certain parts of the country would be shocked that I would even consider living without an air conditioner, especially in an RV. And I definitely understand that, remember, I lived in Miami, Florida, for many years, and there were only two reasons you lived without an air conditioner in Miami, poverty, and insanity. So I'm very familiar with the importance of air conditioning in hot, humid environments.
But my current situation is different than most people's, and an air conditioner is not as important as you might think. My winters are spent in the desert with mild temperatures and low humidity, seldom requiring an air conditioner. And living in Denver, Colorado in the summer, yes, there are days when an air conditioner would be nice, but I get used to the heat, just like folks did in the old days, so I don't consider it something I can't live without.
And I do have a fair amount of experience living in my current situation where during the winter, the few times I have shore power, I turn the air conditioner on only to exercise it, so it doesn't go bad. And during the summer, since I'm normally not plugged into my daughter's house, I don't use the air conditioner except for some special heatwave occasions. So in my normal life, I can say that I could live without an air conditioner.
But am I going to continue living the same life I'm living now, staying in the same part of the country I'm staying in now? Who knows? I sure don't.
And how about when the Bat flu shut down things last year, and I got stuck in Tucson, Arizona when it was over 100° every day and had to stay at the Fairgrounds in a full hookup site until I could get back to Denver, I sure used my air conditioner every day then.
The little Bronco doesn't have an air conditioner, but since my mini-vacation during the summer is usually up into the mountains where the humidity is low, and the temperatures are mostly mild, air conditioning is not missed at all.
An RV air conditioner weighs 80 or 90 pounds which is a substantial weight saving to take off a slide-in truck camper. And that weight is at the very top of the camper, which tends to add to the top-heaviness and the waddling down-the-road look truck campers often have.
So is an air conditioner needed or not? If my travel plans stay the same, I would say probably not. But if I want to go to humid places, or if extraordinary events like the Bat flu happen, I would probably need an air conditioner.

A blue flower. As for a name, your guess is probably better than mine.
