Mel... there's plenty of room for a two fisted drinker and a cowboy with 2 left feet at RLG... and more... and one day I will get back on it. Before I retired - or became lazy - I needed diversions. These days life is a joyous diversion.

I heard the other day it 475 hours on average to complete a novel. I should probably dedicate an hour a day to it... after all there are 3 novels started. That's almost like a full time vocation.

Gotta run... breakfast is done - every one is showered and ready to roll except lazy Ole me.. got my coffee fix too - so time for the shower...

Too busy getting ready to jump on the Rainbow come Sunday (Oct 11 for those who like me are jumping in late) to try to read 50 pages to catch up.

I'll be checking in once we know where we won't be.

Son said there was no questions now, let's move the cows. I now know why you never see Cowboys doing cattle drives in the dark! Black cows are hard to see in the dark! Luckily they'll come running to the sound of a feed bucket.

Have a great day mutants!
Are you sure that were cows running to the feed bell and not mutants?

Steve, there's material here for MARLG. Beautiful woman sitting at spinning wheel, churning out golden cashmere and silk threads, cowboy with two left feet ... There's a tale to be told here, a yarn to spin.
Now if we could get her hubby to sign in as "Rumpelstiltskin" all would be cooler.

Lately we always know where we won't be but hopefully the call of the rainbow will overcome all.

Hey Paul, when you pass through your home state, don't forget where we live.

Oh geez... now I regret saying it... I'm so sorry... I hadn't had enough coffee for the mouth filter to kick in yet. He's not lazy, he's retired and mutating, it's hard work and you're never sure if it will ever get done...

I actually got a "kick" out of it Marty. Clearly you have my best interest at heart. I do like my scooter though it hasn't been out since Bryce.

Above the knee prosthetics are marvelous things - but it does take a lot of work to keep the weight in the "zone" - + or - 5 pounds and the suction socket won't go on or stay stay on. That's why I want to get down to a weight I want to maintain. Believe it or not, I'm doing things now I couldn't do when we went full time 11 months ago.

Life truly is good on the rainbow.
And you truly are a dear friend kiddo. You never owe me anything - let alone an apology.

Hey! That's great about doing things you couldn't do before you went full time!

That might come in handy... one of the things I tried to teach as many W/C patients as would try for me... be surprised at how many refused to try that....

I hearby declare that the journey IS the destination! (duh), and the thing I don't have that I don't miss is an itinerary. :-)

Wow and it's your very first post too! Want to add anything else about yourself since you're so new? Got an RV or anything to camp in? Retired? Riding the rainbow right now?

Welcome aboard in any case Curtis, someone will come along and give you a number and provide you other complimentary gifts.
