I have worked on this desk for a week and not even close to be getting done. I have the top of the desk in place and so i hooked up the computer again. So far, i love it. Takes a bunch of bending off my bath.
Getting off this thing, Storm coming in, Later, Dan
How you been faring with the rash of haboobs hitting the area?

Actually, We don't get them up north of Tucson much. Over west of us they have had several. One Yesterday. We haven't had any here this year. We have had lots of rain! I think its the most in over 10 years! they say its the most rain and humidity on record!
I will finish the desk and then i will start working on the engine. When not on that i will try and work on the kitchen. I got a counter top and will make a new cabinet in the same area. I need to get it done. I can get that done and the engine running again, then...the front brakes and then i can take a trip maybe next spring or summer. I have a few things to finish on the flat-bed trailer so i can pull the truck behind on it. Deb and i both need to get rid of junk in the 5th wheel trailer so i can get rid of the 5th wheel trailer. I think i will be able to sale it to one of the farms that need a place to store hay or feed. Some of the stuff in that trailer is things that needs to be in the kitchen. I want to travel next year. I am getting tired of desert and not fishing or swimming. Don't care about Humidity or rain like back east. Thinking about Florida for winter and summers in Maine. That way we can see our family more often. When i get to where i cannot drive the long trips, i am planning to stay in Florida.
anyway, thats the plan, Dan

Well Dan Maine is closer to where I am currently in Roch,NY.LOL-question would be if I can get ready to move out of here before you get to Maine. We'll have to see how that plays out.

You forgot about Florida in the winters.... I guess i will become a real snowbird. All this depends on my health and how things go while getting ready for the trips. Hope everything works out right. Right now we are getting water logged! Need a few days to dry out and then i can start up on the desk and then to work on the engine and kitchen. Once it gets into the cooler temps i will be able to work on the exterior issues. I hope to be able to get the engine and Generator back up and running by say November. By Spring all the other things i need to do and by summer somewhere going east. Hope my health holds out!! Later,Dan

thanks Jim, i will be seeing the doctor in a month from now to see what he wants to do for me. In the meantime i am trying to finish the desk i will have the computer on. I have waited long enough for it. I have other projects that i plan to finish or do. I don't know if i can get it all done by next summer or not. I can try....

They already did that to me. pain clinic is a joke..., I still have a good (better than usual) Doctor that is trying to help with my pain issues and another that takes care of my Depression. Depression is good...Pain is needing fixed for awhile. They gave up on surgery in the neck and back. They won't try and touch it as they could kill me or make other things stop working or make it worse. Not a good plan there!! I think they will end up putting me on a Oxygen Concentrator. They could also put me on Oxygen. Given the two, I would like the Concentrator. At least i could get around without the bottle on me 24/7. The other way i can turn it on or off depending how or what is going on at the time. They say that the oxygen you can't do that..don't know why. But the oxygen would cost more than the portable Concentrator. I want the one that works off battery, 12volt and 110volt. Can go anywhere with it. They say its quiet in operation than the home types. have to wait and see. Have two more weeks till i see him in October. I did get some more work done on Saturday. Am planning on some today after i get off here. Pics are at the site so nothing to really look at right now but after i am done..should look pretty good. I got a list of things i will be needing when we get that check. Over 3500 plus what i have now. Lots of parts for the coach and truck. I won't be able to do flatbed until next year. The coach maybe by spring if i don't find anything else damaged. I am getting a flat screen so i have more room at the desk. The old monitor just takes up too much room. I will do a few things on the truck but not a lot till next year.Next year the truck and trailer should be done...i hope.....

Quick update. They have changed my Doctor...Again!!I have no idea what this one is like. Its now a woman doc. I had to go down and do blood labs and other testing they wanted to have before i go in the 9th. While there i talked to the doc's Nurse and they put me on prednisone. It has helped so far. I have a 5 day supply and tomorrow is that last day. Should know by weds. if it will do the trick. We got the check so i am in order mode to get all the stuff i need for the truck and coach. I just hope i can stay active. I am getting bored. Will have all these parts and need the energy to do it. And hope with less pain too!! Later, Dan
