Took The Discovery over to shop this morning, having a 12v issue that couldn't be worked out over the phone. Having AC units checked out for the trip across Tx, NM and Nv. Somewhere I read that it might get hot out that way during the summer. And, although my redneck fix to the washer dryer handle works, Mary wants it fixed properly!

Headed outside to enjoy a couple days of low humidity!

So here's a odd thing.. the Train doesn't run on Tuesday and the All Aboard Cafe is closed on Monday... Annie thinks there's a story behind that... I do too, cause it makes no sense.

Inflammation and swelling around nerves is dreadful, but the consequences are worse... so please get with docs on this Dwayne. This is not the kind of thing we can "tough out".

Omms to you and Shara. Keep the updates coming.
Interesting as my nephew has run into back issues as well. It's put a complete stop to work on my house too! Two discs are pressing against a nerve and the insurance company gave him the run-around for weeks because somehow in their eyes it's better to spend money on therapy and steroid treatments that only treat the pain but not the actual problem. So after all that run-around they said, OK, that's not working, you'll have to go in and be operated on. So that's happening on the 29th. Not sure if it'll be just laser or actual slice and dice but either way, he'll get fixed and he can get back to living without being in pain.

I had a doctor appt today and since my DD moved about 30 miles north I decided to switch to another location within the Swedish Medical system. That meant a new primary care physician. Despite having all my records, I had to go thru all the paperwork and explain to my new doctor why I needed a prescription for narcotic pain meds. Nothing new, but my new doc reminded me that I have a really goofy and terrific life.

Instead of simply reading my chart she wanted me to explain my history and why I need meds they don't like to prescribe. So I tell her about my lengthy back pain history, the surgeries I've had, and the alternative therapies I've tried. At one point I mentioned that I live with Sena which causes me to make some choices -- such as not drinking alcoholic beverages and choosing not to get the shingles vaccine.

At one point she says, "Ok, so you live in a motorhome with a monkey and you are only up here in the summer and you spend the winters in Arizona and ..." by this time we are both laughing and it suddenly dawns on me that I really have a great, goofy and wonderful life.

Now if I tell her about all of you, what do you think her reaction might be? And how do I explain Y'all?

You know I wondered about the name when I first enrolled 6 years ago. They are a big health care system in the Seattle area with clinics and hospitals in many locations. I'll have to find out more about that name.

I wish I could help explain "US"... But, it could not be summed up in a huge book...

Great pics Steve. Hi Annie

Dwayne, follow the recommendations of the good doctor. Will you be doctored in the Veterans Hospital? Hope that all goes well with your back. Sounds like you won't be laying under Rainmaker in the near future. But then . . . . . you have more future that the majority of us. It'll work out for ya.

Pssst. . . . . listen to Shara too.
