I thought about removing my own staples, Elizabeth, but I'm afraid my HMO would frown on that. It's only a 30 minute drive to the orthopedic surgeon's office and he ordered Home Health for me which is saving trips into town to do warfarin blood levels and PT twice a week.

My staples had to stay in 14 days because I'm allergic to Steri-strips that they usually put on after removal. They're starting to itch, so I know the time is right.

I gave up the walker today and started using forearm crutches, but only for balance. And I'm happy to say that the pain when standing and walking is almost gone. Everything is headed in the right direction.

Hmm, it must be time to start counting down the days until the GC@CL again.

If that cliff gets water-soaked, it could all come down on you. Better have some plans or the city needs to do something to brace it up. Heard it all too often.

Oh great, right when every one starts recovering from surgeries and flu and pneumonia, we hear about Barb living under an unstable cliff. Now we have to worry about the rocks rolling down on top of her home, or the rain and wind blowing a tree over on top of her home...this is a worrisome group.

Good to hear things are going good! Mary ask me pretty regularly if I had any updates on you. Told her the other day that you must be doing well, your posting at typical regularity.

Barb, it sounds like you are progressing very well! I'm glad to hear that you aren't having a lot of pain.

Bruadair - Looks like all the RVMs missed saying hello. So Hello - you have wandered into the thread of the RV Mutants. If you'd like to become a mutant too - it's easy as falling out of a camp chair. Ask me how I know.

Tell us a thing or two your RV doesn't have and you don't miss --- and

Affirm that --- The Journey is the Destination.

With that you will become RVM70!! Hurry back and let us know... The RVMdom, the rainbow and 69 Other RVMs are ready to welcome you aboard!!

Twelve or so years ago we took off on a small sailboat and sailed full time in Central and South America. Last fall we decided it was time to return home and travel here for a while. On our boat we lived 12 years without a microwave, laundry machines or dishwasher, and while we thought we would miss them we never did. Our adventures were to exciting to miss those things. With our new mode of traveling we still do not have a dishwasher or washer/dryer and still we don't miss them. Actually the Bounder has much more than we ever did on our boat, more and larger tv's, satellite dish, more space (lots more). This is luxury living for us.

In our adventures we enjoyed the people, local foods and culture, I don't think that will change traveling domestically. We thrive on adventure and while we don't expect big waves or pirates on this next adventure we do hope the journey is just as exciting.

And yes, we affirm that the Journey is the Destination

Congratulations on joining the best "Not so august group" on the internet. RVM#70 is a badge to be worn with pride.

Good morning Muteys! Well, sorta morning. My right knee has a built in alarm clock and wakes me for exercise every morning about 4 AM PST. But, I'll go back to sleep shortly.

Dunner, the cliff is mostly granite covered with trees and ivy. This house has been here over 50 years and only 2 boulders have come down. I decided the comfort of the garage outweighs the risk of a boulder striking in the same place twice. I figure the MH motor would take the hit if one did happen to fall. And, I'm well insured. Oh, and thanks for the offer of the staple remover. I think I'll opt for the sterile one.

Brudair, welcome to RVMdom. Don't say you haven't been warned that this group is addictive. I hope you have as much fun here as I do. I appreciate your photography. Your pics make very interesting jigsaw puzzles.

Ok, back to sleep, now.
