Thanks Steve,

I'm just grateful to have some skills that they can use. These wonderful folks have allowed me to squat on there beautiful place for a 3rd summer now, and Arlene cared for me and my furkids when I had new knees installed in Feb. I just wish it wasn't Don and Arlene who are affected by this bizarre illness.

On a really positive note -- Don is getting stronger every day. He can now sit upright without assistance. It sounds trivial, but not for a man who lost the use of every muscle and is fighting his way back. I tell him this is the universe once again attempting to teach him patience.

This is the 3rd time in 12 years that he's come close to death. The other 2 were a massive heart attack and pulmonary emboli. He just rolls his eyes and mumbles something I probably don't want to hear. He got mad Tuesday at a medical supply company who we think is making him pay for their mistake. His speech is usually really hard to understand, but the cuss words were crystal clear. I suspect the score of after this round will probably be Don, 3 -- universe, 0.

I agreed early on that I would take all the good looks and he would have a normal human frame. Looks like it worked out as expected. Ugly is ugly and there is nothing he can do about it. We usually blur his face so he is not embarrassed by his picture but I made an exception this time for y'all.

Now please don't ask me to blur my husky, manly body. It has taken me 73 years to make it this perfect.

Would you like another copy of my theme song?

This was done by my soon-to-be daughter in law. We just learned this news yesterday.

Nice video, and congratulations on picking up someone intelligent into the family of mutants. I'm sure you will spoil her and bring her down to y'all level.

A little warm for his 4 legged chitlins. Had a good chat though. Nice visit, just short due to circumstances.
Check out the sticker on his Moho.

I don't see any sticker. I think Possum's girth is covering it up. Glad y'all got together and sorry about his generator. I think I remember in a speech from him that he fixed it the last time - himself. Hmm! Maybe something to be learned from that.

Is that the first Canadian-Canadian Mini C? In fact, is this the fist time any Canadian has been involved in any kind of Curiosity? If so, sounds like an history marker for the calendar.

Excellent point Don! First Ever Canadian Mutant Curiosity July 31st 2014. A historic day indeed.

Looking forward to a rainbow later after the rain stops. Nice little dust up with some strong east winds and a hint of extremely small hail. It is fairly localized but there are spot of it through out the area. Sue...looks like you could get a bit of a blowup in the next hour.

I'm just chilling after another week of running around. We went to Elkhart on Monday to meet with the folks at Bradd & Hall about a new floor on Tuesday. We found a nice combination of luxury tile and carpet along with some valance work to be done. We will return September 2nd for the work to be done.

Wednesday we finalized the deal and went down to Nappanee to the Newmar factory. What an amazing difference from even last year. The pre delivery lot was nearly full. They are putting out 7 new units a day and are hiring new personnel to up that to 8 a day by September. Still, even after seeing some really nice rigs we came away with a great feeling about what we have and why we have chosen to do the various upgrades to our HOME to make it ours. I'm not sure it is totally in the mutant ideology to even say that I don't have a new MH and don't need one. LOL

We left out of Elkhart Wednesday evening and arrived at Normal, IL which is the home town of Steve's bride, Annie. That was to have them replace our front AC and also install a new front engine seal to correct a minor leak of engine oil. The started at 7 am sharp and finished by 4 PM so we got "home" to our D&W Lake campground by 5 PM.

This coming Thursday I get an MRI on my back to see what is next. The good news is that my back does feel better and perhaps the pain from the hard fall is subsiding. I was told it takes about 6 weeks for things to get back to "normal" and that is about how long it has been. At least with the MRI I will have a base line for future comparison.

We now have 30 day before we pick up the jacks so I'm working on my own todo list of things I want done before we leave. Nothing major but we do have a few project I want to get done.

And...the rain has subsided for the most part. Standing by for potential rainbow delivery.

Haven't read past this post yet, but I should point out that Timarti and I and respective spouses met up in Goshen quite a while ago. So there's your pioneering Canadian! Take a bow, Tina!

Cheers!
Sue

One of my friends moved from Normal to Las Cruces, NM, and now refers to herself as "Diane-Far-from-Normal".
