Try finding a cone of shame for a monkey!

Sena got one of the toes smashed by the door of a heavy macaw cage and the bone was exposed. So off to the vet we go and $350 later she woke up a women possessed. She wanted to pick out the sutures, NOW!

After several rounds I finally ended up sewing one of my socks into her diaper cover essentially making her a 1 legged pair of footie pjs. She needed one foot free in order to climb and not be totally frustrated. When her diaper needed changing, I would have to hold the sock at her knee so she couldn't take it off and see the sutures. Outta sight equals outta mind for Sena.

That was the longest week of of my life.

She's 82, but not ready to give up yet and we aren't ready to give her up! I fly home next week to be there for the operation and some recovery time with the old gal.

I hope everything goes well, but as we all know, anytime you go to a hospital, there's always a chance you're not leaving standing up.
We all wish your mom all the best in her coming ordeals. Medical procedures have come along leaps and bounds and this type of operation, even with the cancer complication, has become commonplace. Keep the faith and all will be well. Give our love to your mom.

Good luck for her Les. I know some of what she will be going through. It's not easy, but not hopeless.

I remember a picture of Earlene standing on the roof of the MH with a brush and lots of soap. I'm still wondering how you got her to do that.

I'm the optimist in the family. Cup has always been half full.
We went through the bi-pass and cancer with my F-I-L. He lived another 11 years. That's when I became a believer in the Serenity Prayer:

"God, give me the strength to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference."

I hope that your Mom comes through everything OK. Stephanie and I will hold her in our prayers.

Good Morning Mutey's

Well today is moving day, but not until I've had my coffee, so while I wait for it to cool just a little bit, its always a good time to check in and see what's happening, I awoke to a frosty coach today so I fired up the heater, thankfully it worked as it should and I didnt get any alarms. I am looking forward to moving 2000 feet down off the mountain cold weather only makes me want to hunt and since I cant hunt right now I may as well be warm and go looking for Jeep Trails. See you all a bit later today.

Cheers !!!

Les safe travels to be with Mom. I know she will be so glad to have you at her side thru this frightening ordeal. Barb and I offer her as well as yourself our prayer for a successful procedure and a quick recovery. Keep us posted so we can all pray together.

I wonder does a new thermostat require one made for RV or will any thermostat work? Anybody know?

It depends on if the existing one has more than one function. Typically, they also operate AC and heats strips and have several modes. If it's a thermostat for only the furnace than it shouldn't matter.
