Tomorrow we’ll be at the old town Yuma Swap Meet to get some good stuff like alfalfa honey and citrus fruit, jalopenas of course, avocados too. It’s a dollar admission but if you give the gate attendants some attention you can get in free with a smile. At least it worked last year.

We’re looking for a couple of missing parts for our awning over the outdoor kitchen. New they’re about a hundred dollars but used like the rest of the stuff, hopefully a fraction of that.

We found some pavers at Yuma Habitat for a dime a piece. We had to go through a pile of broken ones to cull out ones we could use. They said there’s a client who has a bunch of them being changed out and they go get them when she calls, maybe more next week.

Today’s doc visit was about getting set up for a CT scan asap and then a consultation with the doctor. They want to get this show on the road. Hopefully this time next week we’ll have a date for surgery and getting this handled. The sooner we get started the sooner we get done. Computer says one in three over sixty years old doesn’t get full benefits of the surgery. I hope the odds are better when you’re over seventy.

That over 70 recovery may be a plus. Especially for those of us that have never learned how to lay back and wait for old age to come and get us.
I have about 90% of my arm motion back. Working on being able to use it with my own muscles. Thursday was 3 months since surgery. Dr told be it would take 4 months. Thanks to your Iceman I can deal with the recovery pain.
Got other good news yesterday. Urologist called yesterday to tell me that MRI done last Sunday came back showing no C.

Prayers for all those that are in need.

Oh, and the coffee taste good this morning. With 24° in cold Michigan.

Good Morning All.

Ron that is awesome!!!!!!

The lot next to ours was purchased by a couple last year and right after I tore up my shoulder his locked up. He’s never had surgery in his life and he’s timid about getting his fixed so he’s going to be watching me to see how it all works. I don’t wish shoulder surgery off on anyone. Allegedly it’s one of he most uncomfortable recovery’s. But we recovered from a worse event in 2011 to the left shoulder and we’re hoping this one does as well.

The MRI news is wonderful. Cuz’s husband’s doctor is hammering him for prostate surgery but like most men he’s very nervous about that kind of surgery. I know it would make me nervous too.

I don’t know if I told you but the machine arrived last week. Hopefully within a couple of weeks I’ll be using it.

I left the awning up last night and we’ve got some wind today along with a 40% chance of showers, Yuma of all places. I left Texas where the rain fall last year was 55”. Yuma’s average rainfall is 3.5”.

Hoping he ill feel better and those on the road don’t have issues with their RVs.

It’s still dark here and the owl is calling out that today is going to be another great day.

Good morning all!

Ronj, fantastic news!!! Great to hear!

Harvey, I think often the success of the surgery is about the effort and tollerance the patient puts into the recovery. Use it or you loose it. Even if it hurts.

Gosh, it is cold there Popeye! Take care of your crew, tough to work those sails alone.

Deb and Lynne started a 7 week spanish class here in the park that is free. She loved it. I expect the next trip to Algadones will be different as she learns the basic stuff.

Very quite day here yesterday, almost everyone went golfing. Got a few odds and ends done around the RV.

Have a great day all!

L.

If you need to stockpile hot air you can store it all up here.
Just put it in a box and label it "HOT AIR Anyone in Maine" and I sure don't think there is anyone here that would hesitate to sign for it...

I apologize for anyone that went to the old swap meet and found themselves severely disappointed. Only a few of the old vendors were there and what was there looked pretty picked over.

We did find a few things we needed and yes, the being nice at the gate got us in free, at least someone remembered us.

Habitat was open and we gleaned a bunch more pavers, 300 so far at a dime each. About 300 more and we’ll have enough to do the kitchen.

I went on my favorite tractor site and was reminded that in other parts of the world it is cold. Love me some Yuma.

Popeye;
I would be glad to box it and send it to you. I put it in some bubble wrap and insulated it so it would not cool off too much. Turns out there was not enough room left for air.

But the box looked good.

Good Morning Everyone! Coffee is very good today!

Lloyd, very cool drone video!

All of you in Yuma, enjoy! This pic of Mona and Bailey should affirm that you all did the right thing by heading south for the winter!

Good morning everyone. Waiting for coffee this morning. Pebbles told me at 4:30 that she needed to take a walk and I am probably going to try and get a few more minutes of sleep before I commit to coffee today. And Stan, all of us did not decide to go south for the winter. Yuma is north of my place in Texas. But it is cold there now and will be 28 for lows a couple of mornings next week. Enjoying my stay here so far. Park is nice, easy access to Yuma. Good bike trail ride places. Great friends. Feels like I am home.
Now, about that first nap of the day.
