True DAT. The vets checkup for all three will end today when Mikkael gets his examination. Other than being a klutz the little guy is doing everything right. Maintaining his weight properly, getting lots of exercise and taking day on walks every evening even in this fierce cold and horrible winter.

As you can see the motorhome is home for reprovisioning and the lawn needs cutting but Rolex (Mizzie) is actively on the job keeping watch.

These Harsh Canadian winters are getting to be too much for me.

Could very well be she's on a No IPad Order!

Barb when you get to doing catch up reading all of us here want you to know we are worried. We don't have to have a long explanation but would love some reply.

Wishing someone had convinced Barb to let her friend Arlene post some news on her behalf. Guess we just have to keep sending positive OOOHHMMMs her way, as there isn't much else we can do.
Sending love and encouragement to the great North West.....

You know there is another possibility as to her absence. Barb is trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for most cell phones dropped in the toilet in 12 months. She may not have a technology device with her.

Then again - she had it going into surgery. Maybe they have implanted it in her knee too and she is truly bionic - have Cell Phone Will Travel....

I guess we have to go on the assumption - no news is good news. When I was so sick - I wasn't actually in pain other than my rib cage from coughing. Posting actually let me focus on something - otherwise my mind was just blank. I think in Barbs case, she may have some "help" in keeping her from focusing too much. I'm betting all is well, and just a little more intense than she may have thought. Just MHO.

I am hoping Barb let her battery run down..... Maybe Arlene was contacting others and didnt shut it down... These things do run out of juice, especially if she didnt shut down all the other apps that are running in it....

Some hospitals have wifi, but not a convenient close plug.... They save those for the drip machine.......

In the meantime, more Ohms.....

She did mention they aren't allowed to plug in and was hoping to find a spot behind a chair or something... but she would need help getting it plugged in... she is in PT too busy to have time to scheme about getting in contact with us... and her friend's hubby was waking up it seemed, so they are all muchly busy I am sure.

Barb had a double knee replacement. No pun intended, but that is no walk in the park. I had only one replaced and the first couple days i really didn't feel like doing anything but sitting in the recliner in front of the "modulated milk bottle."

Let's just say a prayer that she gets up and about real soon.

I am the luckiest man alive. I have a small backpack - like school kids us for book bags. When we knew I was headed to the ER, Annie packed it up and included an extension cord and the phone charger. I don't know what I did to deserve her but I am thankful. (It probably involved some sort of deception, for which I must have made amends cause she's still here. She is also still quite happy to laugh at me with amazing regularity.)

Ommms to Barb.

You two will have plenty to talk about! And if there's a lull - she will tell all about my many misadventures.

So here's a story for ya. Not too long after Annie and I met - I drove the B Van to the Tetons / Yellowstone. On my drive up I called and cajoled her into taking vacation. I called American Airlines - traded some air miles for a 1 way ticket into Jacksons Hole. What a great place - a National Park with an airport and bar. She flew in and the rest is history. I had been several times before so I knew the ropes. We had so much fun and been having fun ever since. We actually made a second trip the following year as she loved it as much as i do. We have 14 years going and there is nothing but a rainbow ahead. And probably another trip or two to Jacksons Hole and Yellowstone.

Hey Steve,
19 degrees and about 1.5 inches of snow over here. Hope your staying warm over there. Got my head stuck in TV watching all things Olympic. Winter Games have always been my favorite.

Barb we are still praying for a speedy recovery for your new Bionic knees. Hang in there girl.

Hey Herb - been wondering where you got off to. My patio reads 26 degrees & the snow sort blew away but still some on the ground.

Enjoy the Olympics.
