The next 24 hrs are the critical ones, but the doctor is confident of success.
Hey Les !!!!

Great news !!!!
That had to be a bright spot in your day, Marcia and I and all of your friends here are pulling for your mom 100% Just keep the faith my friend, and remember you are not alone....

Little hint, save all the boxes that your patches come in. Keep them when empty where you can see them, unused shelf, countertop, just somewhere you can see them easily and think to yourself I've spent this much already to stop, I'm to cheap to start back now! Suprising how a visual reminder helps in decision making.

Fried taters with that smoky hint of bacon mmm. So bad yet so good!

Hey Judy !!!

You my friend have brought back some pleasant memories of my dear Grandma Dutcher, she lived till she was 99, raised six children through the depression, and when she fixed breakfast she used seasoned cast iron skillets with BACON grease as the base for everything, the best thing was everything was home made and incredible, thank you for that. We as mutants must remember that if you use something, its ok to use it in moderation and enjoy the flavors that come from things that are not supposed to be good for you.

Cheers !!!

This 7 acre property has almost a mile of driveways. There are 4 ways to get from the river level up to the highway which is at least 300 feet higher. Sadly, I chose the steepest that night in the rain. That particular driveway will NEVER see my presence again. I fear my next trip up might be fatal.

Who says I don't learn from my mistakes?

Tomorrow, Deb and I are going golfing, then maybe a late lunch.

How many golfers here? Its my second favorite thing to do. Well maybe I have more than one second favorite thing to do.
Next week, the observation of skydiving.
I like observing skydiving also...from the ground looking up.

Hey Tina !!!

From this side of the mutant spectrum DW is "Dear Wife" she is the dishwasher and sometimes when we really make a mess I help, but usually when she does the dishes I get to do trash duty, not that it's a bad thing. It just works for us since we try to park far away from any trash bins. We spent the last 36 years owning a dishwasher and now we dont and we have found we dont miss it, and therefore dont need it, but for those that wish them go for it.

Cheers !!!

Thank You My Friends,,,,

Dear Mutant Friends,

I just have to say Thank You to you all for your caring, When my Dad was in the hospital and facing dire consequences you all offered your support and care, and although he didnt survive his accident I knew I could vent my frustrations here and not feel like I was pulling the fire alarm. Now seeing Les go through a rough time and all of us pulling together for him and his mom, it just makes me realize this was the right group to get involved with. I know most of us have yet to meet face to face, but those of us that have had that opportunity, what a great feeling it is to be able to meet like minded friends, and not have to worry about being judged by those whom we meet. Thank you for a fantastic thread, and thank you for your care. It is an indescribable feeling of friendship.

Cheers !!!

Since I have neither a human DW, or DH for that matter. To me DW stands for dishwasher. I know, here that makes me atypical, but isn't that what mutanism believes is typical?

Several years ago Apple borrowed a ponder from the intrepid traveler Jack. I can't help but believe if Jack were pondering this today - it would have began - Here's to the RV Mutants...

"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do…"
