I like that - the outside lane is missing. Ugh…

Quite a proper little lady she is and she is nuts about riding her motorcycle. Please note this is her pink rain gear but like all real Bike riders her riding gear is studded black leather.
Princess is adorable! Do you have a pic of her in her studded black leather too?

I was only kidding. Got a few to transfer from my camera to the cell phone. Hopefully no duplicates. Jeff will have to provide the trail name... South of Ouray - trail to Silverton. It was a grand day of Jeeping! Excellent mutant company and just a gorgeous place to see this time of year.

Can't let ya down, Di!

All is well. With the pain blocker the anesthesiologist gave me I'm a happy Mutant! And when the pain blocker wears off on Friday, they'll give me happy pills.

With rehab starting in the morning, I'm looking forward to strengthening my leg and driving Bow to Palo Duro in early November, if I'm released to drive by then! Yay!!! Cannot WAIT!

You didn't miss anything. It was on the National news. A guy in a kayak, with fishing gear is shown warding off a hammer head shark with his paddle as he paddled to shore. He made it and no animals were hurt in the video.

There she is! Been waiting for a short post from you! Yay! Yup... You'll want a few of them happy pills when the pain blocker wears off... but don't over do it either... not enough and too much both have dire consequences!( not the same immediatly, but long term they can!)

You should be about in the middle of the saw procedure right now. I know it is going well, so Kate, give a holler. Also, don't srpoil her more than you do now for goodness sake.


If Sena is ambidextrous I'll sit by you.
Wayne, will you write and perform a stand-up skech? They say laugher helps in healing. Man, reading your stuff should have me outa here tomorrow and back at w@%k on Monday! Go Wayne, go!

Well, we are in the KOA Kampground, Flagstaff, AZ for 1 week. We hooked up with my friend and high school classmate in California and the followed us to this location. It will be a fun week.

Problem is that this Kampground has sites that are real unlevel and with my jack problem (exisiting) I'm up on boards. I need to go up another board on passenger side but it will have to wait until morning. Right now I'm 2 degrees low on the left. Jacks will just not hold on that side.

On top of that, and as a intro, 3-4 years or more ago we lost a jack foot on the front passenger jack. It just came unscrewed and fell of. Bent the heck out of the Ultra Guard rear flap. Bent the angle iron the flap is attached to. Well, today when I raised the jacks, Ealrene check to see that they were up and exclaimed that the jack foot was gone again. In the meantime I kept a 4 inch square piece of iron and it is now the jack foot. I place a 12x12 piece of plywood then that square on top and lower the jack on it.

My friend had a blow out 10 miles out of Kingman yesterday. It took out the filler tube on his gas tank. Took about 4 hours for the repair facility to fix that little item so Earlene and I had a lazy morning. Got on the road around 1:30 p.m. and they caught up with us (me driving 55) and they had problems with the step not coming out and their house AC not working on the Genny.

Oh enough of my rant.

Many healing Ohhmmmms to those who underwent the knife...oh and saw! Get well soon...ohhhhmmmms ohhhhmmmms ohhhhmmmms ohhhhmmmms

Mel... What Carl said...
And - Don't worry. Be Happy!

Thanks for the post. Like Marty said, been waiting to hear from you!

Bow will be ready when you are. Pace yourself.

Sleep tight mutant. Of course I'm sure someone will be checking on you throughout the night. So good luck with that. Lol.

Wow. That is simply amazing! It has to be true - the connection between emotional well being, happiness and fulfillment to physical health, that is.

We love the pics we've seen from time to time of you and Larry ... beaide a lake ... With the fur babies ... beside your Moho. You LOOK happy in a way that can't be faked just for a photo, which tells us that you ARE happy.

Love IS grand! And it has healing power, as most everyone in this Mutant family knows and has experienced

Hugs and high fives! 😊
