As soon as I clear some more space on this phone, I can take more. Our room at the Holiday Inn (would you believe!) faces the Solent and the area where the Emerald Princess will dock tomorrow morning.

Welcome to the most recent Holders of the Broom! Glad to have you here!

Cheers!
Thanks and I think you have a new winner for the "Grumpy Cat" photo!!

As long as after my inspection I don't find any scratches I'll simmer down but if I do find something I'm gonna get madder at myself and then write a nasty note to the CG management for telling me that all of there sites are appropriate for a big rig. Well...no matter the condition of the coach...still is getting an ear full.

I will probably post something about this else ware on IRV2 and Google and Trip Advisor and...(Copy and Paste is such a devilishly good tool at times. LOL)

Well...need to get my big boy pants on and check out the coach in the light of day.
Been there done that dude! In a state park in austin, I got so badly in the trees, I had to get on top and literally saw branches away just to back out without ripping an ac off. So don't feel bad. By the time you arrive, you're tired and just want to park!! Totally get it.

It was REALLY tough for the first week, but got easier everyday. I know that rehab is 10% exercises and 90% attitude. The "Honey get me a pain pill while I, OUCH, prop my knee on this pillow" types stay disabled. If you decide you want your life back and work thru the pain it goes away faster.

I'm left foot dominate and my right knee has lagged behind the left. At my 6 week check up with the surgeon he told me the right one was on target, the left was just way ahead. I still try to stop and switch to climbing stairs with the right first. Now I'm climbing stairs like a grown-up again which is good because I'm doing it about 30 times a day now.
GAAAAAHHHH! 2 Knees at once I agree

We were posted to Germany 2008-2012 and I had my right knee replaced at the Sindelfingen Orthopedic Hospital (supposedly the best in Germany). My Dr, who was also a Professor at the Medical University nearby was always chiding me about the "Crazy Americans" who insisted on having both knees done at once (the "German" way is do one, wait a year, do the other - and you KNOW how regimented the Germans are LOL!!)

Anyway, my Knee replacement and rehab was so very different from the USA that I can understand why the Germans think that way!!

Fortunately, I only needed the Right one done....so it's been 6 months, how are you doing?!

Valdez, Alaska 2013 . . . . . one road in and same road out . . . . bacon was $9.99 a pound at a Safeway. That was before the price spike in the lower 48. We bought 2 pounds. Can't be choosy when it comes to bacon. A watermelon the size of a mushmellow was also $9.99.
