Sena and I went to that garden years ago, but we had to view the butterfly garden from the outside. She considers all those lovely creatures appetizers, entrees, and desserts. That is a wonderful place!

Thanks for the lovely zigsaw puzzle pics, Dave!

Do you happen to have any plain ones left? I would happily decorate one of them to donate, but I don't do paint on gourds. Other media work better for me.

Nola thanks you, Sue!
The gourds were a gift from a neighbor in Yuma. She heard I wanted maracas for..... Oh wait! Secret.

R U an RV Mutant too?

Morning Muteys!

Hope all is well on the rainbow today. Healing Oohms To Liz and anyone else needing them today. I guess Mel is on the back side of knee surgery and feeling well enough to drag Kate out to practice for the sack race at Redux!

Di and Timmy I hope there is more snow than ice for you guys today. Apparently it's going to get really close to us too. Steve be glad you headed south cause it's gonna get chilly here in the Rollin hills.

I'm sad to see this beautiful weather come to an end cause we have a bad case of Spring Fever along with the Redux itch. Everyone enjoy your day and make it a good one.

Had to be desert dweller, Sue. It was outside the gardens just chillin on a tree branch. Looks a bit like a zacada, but smaller.
Maybe dessert for a local lizzard

I had been in pain for years and was to the point that I would prefer to die if this was what life was going to be. I told the doctor just before they put me out that if he could not fix it please slip and let me die. He was not happy with this comment but it told him how bad my pain was.


I was so scared! I came out of surgery with absolutely no pain! It was almost shocking to me. The doctor came into my room a few hours later and told me they were going to fit me with a body support system. It went from breast to butt. It held me completely still at the spine area. I wore it 6 weeks. The doctor told me if I laid in the bed I would be there the rest of my life. If I got up and walked I would walk the rest of my life. Five yrs ago my husband and I walked 2000 feet down the Grand Canyon and back up.


It really will help. Lynne
Great advise. My wife had L3-L5 fused, and then due to her scoliosis which that surgery could not correct, the disks above and below failed 8 years later. She had another surgery to fuse L2 down to S1, which fixed the spinal curvature and now she is pain-free! She can exercise, walk and ride a bicycle as far as she wants. The right spinal surgeon can do wonders.

Thanks for the lovely zigsaw puzzle pics, Dave!

You are very welcome, Sis!
I am proud you can use them.
Sena, my sweet devil, your antics may be the bane of your Mom, but they tickle me!

The RVMdom is very quiet today. Here in the RGV the winds are blowing. I even took a GFMN - that's a Guilt Free Mutant Nap. As they say in the Valley - Manana.

If we lose power we can go to the rv, but If we get down our driveway, we cannot get back up it......
Wayne, Tim, and Dwayne have been here....

Larry is starting up the fireplace, i will soon start a hot pot of soup.....
Just in case of power outages...
But think i will start a new book and just sit by the fire....





Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!
My favorite thing to do on snow days!
We are slated to get some too... but I have a dozen or so cats to care for while their people have gone off to seek warmer weather....that will mean driving in it if we get it....and they are forecasting some tonight...

I lucked out. Annie decided it was Spaghetti Day and got production underway while I napped. And she did some tv watching too. One thing I'm noticing being FT and outside most of everyday - even if just sitting and pondering - I'm getting more in tune with things. It's all good. Sunshine - wind - rain - it's where we live and play. We are really enjoying the freedom. Think I will plot some future adventures this evening.
