Thanksgiving Day we left home sometime around 1:30 PM and drove 120 miles to Jacksonville, where we checked into the Hampton Inn on Beach Boulevard. This is where we prefer to stay when we are in town for an appointment at the Mayo Clinic. On our first visit to Mayo, a few weeks ago we […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection.

We were in no hurry yesterday, and that was a good thing. It was cold in Gila Bend overnight, and I was too lazy to get up and turn on the furnace, so instead I shivered half the night. Finally, about 7 a.m., I got up for a bathroom trip, and when I came back […]

Yesterday we were running around in short sleeve shirts, but that didn’t last long! By evening it had turned downright chilly here in Albuquerque, and today’s high is only supposed to be 53 degrees! We spent most of yesterday printing off copies of our various RV guides and making CDs to sell during the rally. […]
