Good Morning Gang,

Coffee is great this am as I start a five day vacation. Not doing anything special, just wanted some time off and the last 6 days at w--k were way too busy. 40 today so another good thing and a temp we don't normally see this time of year.

Sounds like you all have been busy. Frank, enjoy your Dad, I sure miss mine. Rail, Hope you get that phone soon. We don't realize how much we carry the darn things until we don't have them.

Popeye, How's your roof ac vent doing? Any leaks? Gordon, I wish you warm temps.

I agree with the frustrations with the site. I haven't posted much so not been too bad for me but it sure is frustrating when you loose a post.

We ordered our dolly from ACME. Hydraulic disc brake one. Plan to use it this summer and do some longer trips. Think I found a mobile unit close by to do some repairs . upgrades we want done on the rig.. You all have a good day. Lynne

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee was good this morning, weather is nice, going to the mid 80's again today, then rain and cooler starting tomorrow.
Lynne, thanks, we try to get with Dad 2 or 3 times a week. He is heading back to Tn either the 1st or 2nd week of March, so it won't be long. Sounds like you got a good dolly.
Rail, Hope that you get your new phone soon.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Good Morning Everyone! Coffee is very good today!
Lynne, good that you found a mobile service guy to help with your MH! They can save you a lot of money, as they work much cheaper, because they don't have a big overhead! I always used them for work on my semi, when I could, and also used the small (Mom and Pop) shop's too! On the phone, I don't use the phone much over here, but still a inconvience!!
Frank, Good to spend as much time with your Dad as you can! I have not come across many MH's in your area lately, that you two could go check out?
Ok, we have not heard much from Curtis, Jay????
Lloyd, PM sent to you!
Everyone have a great day!! Rail!

Morning,
Currently 39 (brrr) Degrees'
Am I really in AZ
Coffee is good today as usual
Chapter 3, Joe's Med's
Well we went up to get Joe's script, Walgreens to the rescue, they called him and said they are ready, I told Joe you better call again and ask if they are ready, Yep they (3) are ready. So up we go and yep you guessed it one was not approved. I blew a gasket, another 150-160 mile trip.
We waited almost 4 hours there to see if it would get approved, and his adjuster didn't respond. I asked the pharmacist If they could just mail it to us and was told sure $10.00 bucks. So we headed home to Quartzsite.
I'm glad I had the drive back to relax the blood pressure what a beautiful drive it is.
I think next month we will try Mexico
I tried my sheeting in the windshield its almost a perfect fit, it must keep the daytime heat out by 1/2 I'm guessing.
I can't believe we have been gone from the S&B for almost 2 months. Got a text from my brother yesterday and they got 10 inches and my neighbor said we got 15 inches. Kind of the same here Flagstaff got 18 inches the other night and in Quartzsite high winds, really high winds.
Sure a lot of nice MH's around the area.
Bought a couple Snapdragon plants to give our patio a little color. They look nice,

That's about it for me,
Have a great Day and those on the road be safe,

Tim

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee was good this morning, had a lot of fun yesterday on the golf course, Didn't hit the ball worth darn, but once on the green, I had the best day putting that I have ever had.
Rail, got your PM's and phone calls made and appointments made for the one, also sent you the answers on your PMs.
Tim, we had 86 or 87* yesterday , but it was very windy, supposed to rain here today with possible storms, then drop into the low 40's tonight, upper 50's low 60's for highs for the next week, with lows in the upper 30's to mid 40's.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Good morning all;
Life is grand here in Yuma. Just pulling your legs! Weather made it to 62 yesterday. Would be OK except the breeze was fairly stiff. Sitting in the sun is very warm but as soon as the w**d gets in it is not very comfortable.

Tim - let us know when you are coming down to check out Mexico. Would be fun to go across with you. Should check out and see if Joe can get back on a drivers license. I suspect not but you never know until you ask. It would be best for us near the end of the month. We are heading up to ski the first two weeks of March and will not be back before you plan to leave for home. The week of Feb 21 would be good for us.

Also good for you to check out to see if any of your script is restricted without a prescription or if you cannot bring it back regardless. I have seen people with shopping bags full of drugs heading back. I have heard that you can bring a 6 month supply back. Another thing to verify.

Supposed to be warming up here over the next while.

Janet is back from the cruise. The weather was pretty rough so the ship was pretty bouncy. Glad she is back safe and sound. They did have a good time but there was room for a better time if the weather had cooperated.

Have a great day.

Evening all!

Rail, got your PM. Checked it out on the dealer website, still interested in that one?

Been wet here the past few days. My little cold, went into serious sick Monday. By afternoon I had 2 ear aches, and therefore went to the urgent care. Diagnoses sinus infection, infection in both ears (boy that is not fun) a swollen throat and a little fluid in one lung!!! Sheeesh!

Doc has me on some serious meds, antibiotic that is so strong I need to eat yorgurt with it to keep my stomach doing its thing(new one on me) and major steriods. Doing much better today. He also gave me cough syrup that I swear has a Jack Daniel's base!!

Have a great night all!

L.

Good Morning Everyone! Coffee good today!
Tim, it is a good thing that is a nice drive, to let you relax a bit on the way home! You can get Joe a passport card for Mx., Canada, and the Carribian(sp), which is what I used when I lived down their! Still have to go to the post office to get it though and takes a mo. or so to get it!
All PM's answered!
Lloyd, sounds like you got it good! JD based cough syrup? OK!
Gordon and Tim, that Az. weather will get cool sometimes at night, but it most always warms up during the day! I loved wintering down there!
Popeye, sounds like you better batten down the hatch's!! As Lynne ask, how did your "A/C gasket replace" go? You put the bucket away?
Still nothing from Curtis and Jay??
Frank, hope it goes OK tomorrow! (He is looking at a MH for me)
Everyone have a great day! Rail!

Good Morning All,

Day 3 of my short vacation. It's nice to not have to get out in the cold to drive to w--k. This is what retirement is going to be like without the thought of going back in a few days.

Coffee good this am, some snow yesterday but mostly gone also, 24 this am. Not bad winter for MI and my SIL cannot believe we are not buried in snow. My DH took a pic and posted on FB showing grass and she was like "What, no snow there?". No!

Did a lot of cleaning yesterday. Meeting for lunch with friends today that I have not seen (some of them) in years. I have not told them who all is coming so it should be a great surprise. I look forward to it.

Gordon, my SIL buys all her meds in Mexico because it is so cheap. They also have a place in Mexico. Not sure about scripts, but they never buy in the US anymore.

Hope you all have a wonderful day. We have some birthdays coming up on the 8th and 9th so get ready with your birthday wishes for Bap and Mkohler Take care, Lynne

Lynne, enjoy your lunch, meeting old friends and catching up is fun. Rail, hope one of the MH will work out. Popeye, still no snow here, "yet", lots of winter left to make up though, we have officially had like 5.5 inches so far . Everyone have a Great Day.

Morning All! Just got rid of almost all of the last big snow, just to have it snow this morning! Unggggggggghhhhh! Went out to put Sally's car on the lawn, because they don't use rock salt here, they use Salt Rocks! Have actually had the bottom of cars dented by the spreaders. It has been warm, so the early snow is more like 5" of slush by the curbs. Should be a lot of fun trying to snow blow it later! Was supposed to put a storefront in today, but i'm not doing it with this mess, they made me wait over 6 months to do it so it can wait! Ordered a Brake Buddy last night for the pickup, got it on ebay, hope it works out. I really need to get out of here! Was going to have the whole interior done before taking off for Florida , but i'm just going to clean it up and do it when we get back. Will have the new convertible top put on though. Terry, hope Eleanor gets well soon! Hope everybody else is ok too! Bobby

Morning,
Currently, 41,
It's going up too the 80ties next week now that deserves a ,
Lynne, its Joe and I that need the med's Gordon is offering too go to show us the ropes.

Lloyd,
be careful with the ear infections, I got one a couple years ago, not knowing that I had one because of the pain meds I was on I came down with Bilateral Vestibule,
I lost 100% in my right ear and 50% in the left. It left me with hardly any balance and there's no fixing that now but maybe in a few years so the Specialists told me. I have meds that is suppose to help but not much.
Balance disorder
"A balance disorder is a disturbance that causes an individual to feel unsteady, for example when standing or walking. It may be accompanied by feelings of giddiness, or wooziness, or having a sensation of movement, spinning, or floating. Balance is the result of several body systems working together: the visual system (eyes), vestibular system (ears) and proprioception (the body's sense of where it is in space). Degeneration or loss of function in any of these systems can lead to balance deficits.

Gordon,
Can I just bring/use my bottles that have refills left on them or do I need to have my doc send me hard copy's of the meds needed?
You know we are here till the first of April. Maybe we can get a spot in your park for the month of March. The pool might feel good if we are going to be in the 80ties? Then you can show us the ropes of getting in and out ?

Rail,
Thanks for the offer and we might take you up on a few of them. How's your new ride doing? Hope no problems with it.

Harley1994,
Hope the wife is doing well, Spring will be here soon we hope...

That's about it for me. I need more coffee,
Have a great weekend and those on the road be safe,
Tim
