Thanks everyone for the good wishes and positive comments. We saw the anesthesiologist today. All is set to full ahead.

Bit of a roller coaster ride. The clinic phoned first thing this morning and said the Dr was sick so the appointment was postponed. Disappointment About 10 minutes later another lady from the clinic called with an appointment with another Dr at the hospital. Elation An hour later the hospital called with directions to the correct department. Confusing instructions Got there and shown into waiting room. Waited for an hour and a half because we were being worked in. Nice Dr gave us the information and answered a few questions that we had. Excited. Now we are waiting for next Monday to come. Patience is required. I can do it!!

Yes Janet is in great spirits. We went out for lunch today and for dinner this evening she decided she was going to have apple pie followed by chocolate cherry frozen yogurt topped with home made raspberry syrup!

BAP - nice photos. BUT. . . . We want more pictures of the builds if you have time to take them. It is great to see you and DW refurbish and bring the classics back to life. My first trailer was a 14' Scamper. Next I went to a 19' Shasta and then a 28' 5er. I have fond memories of all of them. The pictures of your builds bring back those memories.

Good Morning, Bap, great job what you and your DW do to those TT's is just fantastic, they look better than new. Gordon, great to hear Janet is ready to go, tell her to eat now sometimes after you might not feel like eating for awhile. Have a great day.

Morning everyone. Supposed to be a lovely day today with snow predicted for tomorrow.

I love the word procrastination. I think I have done it too much so today I am out to clean up our perenial beds and the asparagus patch. We leave the old growth on to keep the snow and slow the spring growth. Too often we get late frosts that nip the new growth if it is too soon.

Hope everyone is well or getting better! Sorry I left Frank in Florida! It's a drizzly damp 39 in Lebanon, PA. On one hand i'm very happy with the milage i'm getting , took the scenic route up 301 to 95 then cut over on 26 to 77 and on to 81 lots of hills , but keeping the cruise on 55-60 got me 9-10 mpg seems to be getting better with the cooler air! Sally got bit by something and got a big red rash by her groin, it seems to be going away. Me , my right leg and lower back is toast, all numb down to my toes. Seems these old seats need to go in this MH. Right side of the seat bottom on drivers seat is broken and sags like 5", have pillow folded up under my right cheek, gives some relief but am looking for new seats. Probably will end up having these rebuilt as i've seen new ones from 850-1700, to much cash for my wallet! Glad i'm near home but still have a few days to go visiting family and such! Be well peeps! Bobby

i got home early enough from my scouting trip to help the DW on the holiday,,,by the way the scouting trip was great saw a few big ole gobblers strutting and gobbling,,,anyone else on here hunt the spring gobblers ?


but anyway excuse the mess in the holiday,,,under construction...lol..
the DW has painted the cabnets white to help brighten up the rig and painted the knobs and latches to add a little zing to bring in a little green to accent the green counters, she also painted the bathroom door with chalkboard paint for camping rules and events for each time out...she also took an old vintage pie pan and painted it and then painted a little picture on it..she also is reaphoustering all the cushions and making curtains for it..
i have been using the palm sander on the exterior and getting it ready for paint , i also coated the metal roof and brought it all the way down in the front and back to the trim..and down the sides as well..i like the mat gray color and i think when i get the marker lights up they should pop out....if i dont like it i can always sand it back off...lol

here is where were at so far..
