I know, Sue, I read that about Barb somewhere in this thread. (Does this hold the record for have the most pages in a thread?) Gotta meet that gal! She's my new hero.

I had barely gotten over my right rotator cuff surgery (where they had to cut away part of my clavicle) when I injured my right Achilles and then 6 weeks later busted open my right knee. Weird. I'm right handed and right eye dominant. Weird! Needless to say, I sure wouldn't have wanted to try and rehab TWO knees at the same time. I'd rather stretch it out over 9 months and two joints and one Achilles tendon! Get to know that therapist like a brother. Ha ha! This hasn't been my best year, but I'm not complaining! Because I have been off work--again -- for 6 weeks, I was able to find this crazy group of RVmutants. My lucky day!

"If'n it wasn't so late in the year I might take you up on that. Haven't planned for it. No equipment like cell phones that wouldn't cost an arm and leg to use in CA. Withdrawal pains for a week or so would be tremendous."

I hear ya! Last summer when we crossed the border at Sarnia we stopped in Port Huron on your side to get a pay per use phone and a Verizon Jet card hotspot for wifi internet. Worked great, but when we got home we discovered there was absolutely no way we could keep them active or topped up until our next visit because even the USA visa card from our bank associated with our USA dollar account was tied to our Canadian address, so we could not pay, no way. They had to use a "fake" USA address to set up and activate them and we used visa for that, but once back over the border we could not do anything. Spent a lot of time on the phone about it! But there was no way we could be without high speed for weeks! My name is Tina and I am an internet addict.

These are the view from our seats at the Secret Cove Restaurant in Anacortes, WA.
Fabulous sea food dinner with a sunset to match. My girls and I had a great evening.

Yeah, pretty much learned all that after rotator cuff surgery where they also had to cut off part of my clavicle. My sis-n-law had warned me about being a good therapy patient. She had knee replacement at age 49 and you'd never know it today. She made a believer outta me, though. When PT started, I was the model patient. Consequently, today I have probably 98% of my range of motion back. The shoulder is great. So yeah, I'm very appreciative of the benefits of PT. I cannot even imagine going through this kind of thing without PT. Gotta have it!

My mom has a friend who had knee surgery two years ago. He only did the exercises when he was with the therapist, and never did any of them at home. Today, he is having a really hard time. Still using a walker. So sad.

And to Barbara, my hat is off. Rehabbing two new knees at once ... Well, all I can say is

Dave you were right "The Journey is Our Destination".

Ah, but do you miss them? Ya gotta say!

See? The entrance requirements to this august, sick and twisted group are verrrry stringent! But we feel confident you can meet them all and will enter our ranks in short order.

It seems you are already known amongst us, so I bid you welcome. We are family!

Cheers!

Actually - I have never been on a cruise. And I do have a bunch of suggestions in for SOGC locations but as I have said before... it takes a bit of coordination and time to pull that all together. By Dec 5th I should be settled in enough to really work on the SOGC.. and anyone else is welcome to take a stab at it before hand..

It does seem that since I started doing retirement type things - cruise lines - credit card companies and lord knows who all want to hook me up with something - scooters - bathtubs - Vilas - condos - retirement communities - rv lots - lol..

So when whoozits with cruises called the other day we talked about cruises. Just tossed it out there Tim since you have been on a cruise since the thread began - Sue has been on 4 or 5 - Dave and Nola have 1 a year in their "plans" and Don and Colleen cruise... and others - so I thought it might be something to think about. Especially given the proximity of San Diego to AZ - or cruises out of FL for wintering mutants... seemed like a good idea at the time.

So Mel - we got together 1 time before - and will plan another - and mini-c's happen with more and more frequency.

This is the link to the presentation of the FEGC @ CL
http://www.rvmutants.com/first-ever-...ng-history.htm

Edit in testing the link - looks like you may have to pop it a time or two to get it to behave...

Take a look and peruse the rest of the website too... we have a great group - and every last mutant is a rainbow riding winner!

Elizabeth - your mugs are on the way...

Mel - I can get ya some mugs but the patch is on hold for now. Maybe in March LOL.

Later mutants...
A great Birthday Present for me would be you picking my submission for the Son of in Northern BC.
