Tina, it's good to hear from you again and to know you're having a good trip, even if tire trouble takes a bit of the shine off the rainbow occasionally.

Having the TPMS is a good idea for sure. It lets you know when to worry, and when the break out the Rolaids.

Be safe and enjoy the rest of the ride.

Cheers!

Today I left the river house in the RV, with the car in tow, and drove to Puyallup, WA where my friend Don is spending his last week as an inpatient at Good Samaritan Rehab Hospital recovering from Gullian-Barre syndrome. I'm spending 3-4 days up here learning how to care for him, especially his tracheostomy.

So the hospital has 1 RV electric hookup and I reserved it. Debbie, who handles that, said she would park the hospital van there since it is frequently taken by someone ignoring the RV only parking sign. That she did do. But she also said she would move the van back to it's space at 3 PM, which she didn't do. And she left early today. Thanks, Debbie!

I tried parking in the van's space, but it was on an impossible slope. So, brilliant me sees a flat stretch of gravel next to the RV space and decides to park there. Only problem was this cliff behind the gravel space that I miss-judged the distance behind me and long story, short -- all the sudden I found my right rear end low and my left front tire about 10 inches above the gravel. OOOOOPPPS!

My Good Sam towing insurance paid for itself this year. Nothing was damaged beyond my pride. The tow bar very neatly put one arm on either side of a tree and only a nick the size of a quarter in the tree bark. It took all of 5 minutes to winch it out.

One more lesson learned the hard way.

Oh my, oh my.... You are a warrior to even try all that you do.... Remind your pride of that. GLAD you are ok....

They said the bet was heads or tails. Apparently they knew he was going to keel over. Just weren't sure if he'd land face up or face down. Thanks Di... I think... 😂

I saved the seed and sent some to Sue and Dunner, who shared some of his with Marty. I'm hoping they both get true Lemondrop melons, but you never know with hybrids, which I believe this is.

If you find them in your store buy them. You won't be sorry.

Barb, I planted some in pots this spring, but for various reasons have not gotten them or anything else into the ground. They began to bloom, and might even try to set fruit. I feel like an evil stepmother!

Fortunately the seed will keep and I will try again. Directly into the ground next time! Or maybe in bigger pots to raise in FL.

There is some kind of cucurbit growing in the compost pile now. It hasn't set fruit yet, so I can't id it, but those volunteers are a gift of sorts. Often we get tomato plants too.

Hope your training is going well. There must be a huge lot to learn.

Cheers!

Ah, well, when we talk about how the silkworm makes silk, we sometimes call it (close your eyes, Diane!) wormspit. Little boys love it; little girls pretend to hate it. :0

Steve... did you guys request all these testings? Did the Doctor just order them when he heard you were going to go gallivanting around the country when you retired? Is insurance paying all this stuff? I'm just a little curious because when I had breast cancer, my doc ordered a test that was fairly standard according to everything I was reading and educating myself on, (CAT scan with dye) and insurance refused to pay it after the fact and we challenged them on it and lost. It is now something I think they pay for...9 years later, but I was pretty upset about it at the time. They just thought we should remove both mammaries and be done with it. The scan would tell if lumpectomies would have done the job well enough.

I thought it was part of the pre-nup, but perhaps post-nup?

We get our annual tuneups each summer.
Fulltiming: year 1, 7 months away from PA. Year 2, 8 months. This time 9 months. I call it progress!
