AN AFTERNOON CAMPFIRE

DSC_8021

A QUIET & RELAXING BACKYARD CAMPFIRE THIS AFTERNOON

It was the best sleep I have had in years & years & years.  After downing my little Dimetapp codeine cocktail last night I went to bed shortly after 10.  Despite a short pit stop somewhere in the pre-dawn hours I slept right through to morning.  If I hadn't lost the keys to the Jeep I might even still be sleeping but in my dream world I was in the middle of a busy big city intersection trying to find my keys while cars all around were honking uncontrollably.  No wonder I woke up with a start at 5:30 this morning.  What a huge bonus it was to have actually had a good night's sleep for a change.  Made me feel like a new person this morning.

My energy lasted long enough this morning to get the doggy guys all the way around the pine trail, get the grass cut, pull some weeds & repair an electrical cord in the carport.  By early afternoon I was back in my recliner.  I have one anti-biotic pill left for Saturday so hopefully that will be the magic bullet that turns this thing around.

For readers who sometimes send in questions to bloggers & maybe do not receive a reply, be sure to read RICK'S POST this morning on, 'why.' 

If you are Motorcycle person living in the northern latitudes & would like to take your bike south with you in the winter check out RV LIFE ON WHEELS posts over the last few days to see how they are going to do it.

For all you diesel drivers out there you might want to read RETIRED ROD'S POST today & see what he has found out about the new mandatory 'Urea' technology being added by manufacturer's to their newer diesel engine truck models.  And yes, it is going to cost you money!!

Rene over at LIVE-WORK-DREAM expresses some heart felt thoughts about the realities of full timing & their new found friends in the mountains of Colorado.

Have been having some strange happenings on my side bar over the past couple weeks with things mysteriously disappearing.  This morning I noticed KAREN IN THE WOODS had vanished off our 'Blogs We Follow' list.  I have re-added Karen & I see where they are just getting into the fine points of, 'Toad Towing' for the first time.

JERRY & SUZY may be in California at the moment but big winds tore into their Escapee Park back in Benson Arizona this week doing some damage to their place & others!!

Kelly has had a difficult week in Spencerport & will be returning home tomorrow afternoon.  One day to rest up & then it's back to her very busy Deer Park Lodge job.  The latter part of August has turned out to be kind of difficult for us but at least we are heading into the all round best time of the year.  Did you realize Christmas Day is only 4 months from yesterday.  I wonder where we will all be by then................................

  1. It's amazing what a good night's sleep can do for a person. You are sounding better and I hope you are just about recovered from that awful bug that hit you.

    I haven't had so much as the sniffles since I've been taking a Vitamin C 1000mg tablet every day. Other things maybe, but no colds or flu.

  5. Sitting around a campfire sounds like some good R&R after a busy morning. A few more nights of good sleep and you will be back to your old self.

  7. Hey... glad to be back "on your list" I had some of my blogs I follow drop off one time too. So I scrambled and found them all again by looking at the lists on other blogs till I restored them all again. A Blogger Hiccup?

    Your campfire looks mighty fine. I think we need one of those tonight. Taking off for 2 weeks vacation, so will be sure have more than a few campfires to take pics of!

    A tad bit of advice if you don't mind? If your last antibiotic pill don't help, go back to the doc right away and get another week's worth. Sometimes an extended dosage is what it takes to get rid of a really nasty bug. If you wait too long to get more to keep up the regimine, the bug can overtake you again even stronger.
