A few weeks ago Miss Terry received her Medicare Enrollment Notice because she will turn 65 in June, and yesterday I received mine because my 65th birthday is in October. Yep, it’s almost official. We are about to become old farts! How in the heck did we get that old in such a short time? […]

We will begin moving into our new home on Friday, and in the meantime we are keeping ourselves busy to help the time go faster. On Saturday we drove to the small town of De Land, about half an hour from here, to visit a couple of used furniture stores. We have already been making […]

Pins And Needles

We have been on pins and needles the last few weeks, waiting for the outcome of some health issues. When I was in the hospital in Temecula, California back in mid-November they said an ultrasound found a cyst on my left kidney. They did a second ultrasound and said it was a mass and I […]

Happy New Year to all of our friends and family. I hope 2016 is filled with much love, joy, and prosperity for all of you. I always think of a new year as a brand new notebook full of blank pages just waiting for me to fill them up. What will those pages hold 366 […]

The Numbers Are In

At the end of December every year WordPress sends out an annual report to bloggers, telling them how much traffic their blog received in the past 12 months, where those visitors came from, which blog posts received the most attention, and a lot of other interesting data. My report came in yesterday, and looking it […]

You Have Been Warned!

High winds and very cold temperatures across the southwest made for a miserable day yesterday. When I went outside to dump our holding tanks in the afternoon, I would have sworn I was in the Arctic, not Arizona. If this crap keeps up much longer, I’m going to launch into an epic sniveling fit that […]

Not Doing Much

Except for going up to the hot tub and soaking for a little bit most evenings, we have not been doing much. I have spent a lot of time just sitting on the couch reading, occasionally logging onto the Internet to check email or things on Facebook, and watching television. I really haven’t had much […]

One Step At A Time

Yesterday was a better day than the day before, thanks in part to the Codeine I took, starting at midnight. It allowed me to get some sleep and took a lot of my back pain away. Except for checking email a couple of times and dealing with four or five that were pressing, visiting with […]

A Lot Of Pain

Thanks to everybody who sent messages and blog posts saying you were glad I was out of the hospital. I’d like to say that I’m feeling better now that I’m home, but I’m actually worse as far as pain levels go. When I was discharged from the hospital in Temecula they would not give me […]

Back To Tucson VA

We have to be up and out the door early today to make a 110 mile run back to the Tucson VA hospital for a couple more medical appointments this afternoon. Nothing serious, just routine stuff they didn’t have time to do when we were there a couple of weeks ago. It’s a lot quicker […]

Running Our Legs Off

Or our wheels, at least. We’ve been going pretty much non-stop since we got to Tucson, getting all of our annual medical appointments taken care of. Monday was Terry’s turn, and yesterday was mine. We arrived at the VA hospital a little after 9 a.m. and I didn’t have to wait long before they took […]

A Lot Going On

We’ve had a lot going on and have been busy ever since we got to Tucson on Monday. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to ease up anytime soon. Wednesday I got my lab work done at the VA hospital in preparation for medical appointments next week. The blood draw went fine and then […]

Mar 072014
 

Yesterday was one of those hurry up and wait days. I had two appointments at the Tucson VA hospital, the first one at 12:30 and the second at 1:15. I was worried that there might not be time for both, but since they were right across the lobby from each other, the nice folks there […]

A Long Day At The VA

Yesterday was a very long day for me. I arrived at the Tucson VA Hospital just after 10 AM, and by the time I left a few minutes before 5 PM I had been poked, prodded, examined, x-rayed, digitally imaged, had my skin frozen with nitrogen, and probably a few other things I can’t remember […]

Greg Was Bad!

We’re not sure what happened, but for some reason WordPress deactivated Greg White’s Our RV Adventures blog yesterday afternoon. There was no explanation, just a cryptic message that said the blog had been removed for a Terms of Service violation. Yeah, Greg was bad! We have no idea why this happened, because Greg sure hasn’t […]

Greg Was Right

Okay, I admit it, my friend Greg White was right. Last September when we were shopping for our iMac computers, Greg kept telling me that while Macs have a good reputation, they are still computers and they still break down from time to time. Of course, I didn’t want to hear that. Greg was right. […]

Hurry Up And Wait

After pushing hard to cover the 1,050 miles between Mission, Texas and Tucson, Arizona, I made it to the V.A. hospital yesterday only to spend four hours getting almost nothing accomplished. Hurry up and wait. I had to go to the lab and get blood work done before anything else could happen, and the place […]

Jan 052012
 

As I wrote a while back, our plans for 2012 have already been changed a couple of times, due to needing to get repairs done to our coach and scheduling conflicts with my appointments at the Tucson VA hospital. So we scrapped our planned trip to the Keys for this year, and we may stop […]
