But great news.... with Larrys doctor visit today... all is good, he is as fit as he can be.... btw, the doctor has only released one other patient ever, so he was extremely pleased that Larry has done so well, and told us to call him if we ever need anything.... this so far has been the hardest farewell.... they have become family....

Wonderful news from Dr. Ransom! Larry has had excellent care from all his team, including the best at-home career a person could wish for. Congratulations all round!

MoHooomzzz continue for a quick & satisfactory sale.

Don't listen to them Carl, just keep your feet away from the tripod - simple fix.

Di,

No fortune teller could have predicted all the changes in your life during the last, what? 18 months? I'm so thrilled for you and Larry and can’t wait to hear about your new digs in Florida. It just shows us all the monumentous power of love.

Hommmzzzz

Exactly.

But in all seriousness, there are many folks who will weigh down the tripod using whatever to keep things very stable when doing long exposure shots and such. My problem was it was sitting in the house sort of ready to go. Won't make that mistake again.

Does it still have the 47HP motor?
PreWar cars had a 2 cylinder opposed 35CID 12HP engine. After the war a tin type 4 cylinder 44 CID weighing 15 pounds was made. They later produced that same engine in a cast iron block. That is the engine your fire truck had. BTW, your fire truck, did it have a single or tandem rear axle?

What? You came to Little Rock and didn't alert any mutants?

Us Arkies thrive on meals with mutants. Poor Richard might shrivel up and blow away, you might could have attended Di's last Arkie mini! Would have loved you have meet you.
I was thinking about you, it was a quick trip down, and BOY was it HOT while we were there! 113 heat index. We stayed at Maumelle Park!

Hot! Wait till the humidity gets back up! We're actually having a lull in the weather. At least you had shade trees there at Maumelle Park. Di and Larry are at the downtown Rv park, hence no trees and we live about 15-20 minutes away with Richard and Queen Ann another 5-10 minutes from us. We're almost always up for a mini-c. Maybe next time we can connect!

I want to share some info with you and Nola about my cataract surgery 14 years ago. One of my careers was as a dispensing optician. I owned and ran an eyeglass store back in the late 70s/early 80s so I know a bit more about this subject than most people.

The lens implants they put into my eyes are bifocal That means I donít need reading glasses unless the print is very, very tiny. I'm sure the technology has probably even improved since then.

At that time I was given a choice of 2 brands, one that was driving distance and reading a book distance. The other was driving distance and computer screen distance. I requested one of each since I had already been wearing 2 different contact lenses. This is termed monovision. One eye sees far away, the other sees to read a book. The brain easily switches eyes and I just enjoy clear vision without glasses or contacts.

Today after 14 years I'm still thrilled with my ability to see and almost never look for eyeglasses. The implants werenít cheap back then, but I know I would have spent much more on glasses, especially since Sena is so fond of destroying them.

Here's some more info about bifocal lens implants -

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0011863/

This was the quickest and easiest of all my surgeries. It takes 15 minutes per eye and sedation isnít necessary unless you freak out if something comes close to your eyes. I did it without. Tell Nola I'm sending HUGS! and ohms. Giant Ohmmms isnít needed for this surgery.

Also, as for glaucoma - both my parents had it and my eye pressure was borderline (22-23). Then I had gastric bypass, lost 200# and my eye pressures returned to normal.

I'll probably miss the GC also, but Iím looking forward to hugging both of you in AZ next winter.


Thanks, Sis!
Nola has read your post and really appreciates it.
She has a lazy right eye that has reverted since 2 surgeries when she was very young. This one will have 2 procedures weeks apart, and it has good nuff vision to not warrant lazy eye correction. Only the standard vision lenses will be used in both eyes.
Whatís sad for us is how much we want to get back on the road! This is our longest stay in our home camp in 6 years!!!
So, we will just go the gauntlet and spend time with our kids. If the sessions get passed September 20th, we will begin this seasons Journey by spoiling Hayden in FL.
We HAD some plans for Colorado, Montana and Utah, but AZ is our Destination this year. Perhaps bust out to the North in the Spring?
So, how about another AZ GC? We REALLY need one!
We better see a ton of PoP if we canít be Yoopers!

Thanks for the reply! I now know more about the fire truck. I hope itís still running as the kids rode in the ladder/trailer part and had such wonderful fun.
Thanks again

Mini-c, yea -- Mini-C... Oh, that was not an invite

I am lucky to have a few extra pounds to burn off before MI & should make it before starvation!!

Maybe, before you head out for your AL - MI trip, we might need to see if Di has time for a little C meal???

HOMmmmmssss for a quick, profitable sale Di...
