FRONT YARD FLOWERS
It was 8:10 a.m. with heavy overcast sky's this morning when Kelly backed the Santa Fe out the driveway & began her 5 (turned out out be 6) hour trek east on her saddened sojourn to Spencerport, NY. Depending on her Dad's condition she hopes to remain until Friday.
THREE BOTTLES OF WATER, CARS LOADED & SHE'S OFF..........
I'll be chief cook & bottle washer for the week & we will all be fine here despite the usual worried looks I am getting from some furry little faces.
NICE TO SEE PEOPLE'S CREATIVITY WITH NATURE
After 8 basically sleepness nights I was able to stitch together, in three different segments, a total of 5 hours sleeping time last night. The line has been blurred all week as to just what has been causing what in regards to my condition. The 'bug' I have or the deprivation l of sleep I have experienced. I do feel better today & the eye problems, headaches, & lethargy that have been dogging me have lifted. If I can get a few more hours sleep tonight & just might finally be on the road to recovery.....again.
I took the 2 big furry guys for a walk this morning around 11 & we were able to do the complete Pine Forest trail. Took us an hour but we moved along slowly because I had my clippers with me & worked a bit at clearing back overhanging branches & wild raspberry plants. Max & Checkers love moving along slower because it gives them lots of time to explore all the wondrous smells along the trail. And now that Checkers just came home all spiffed up from the Groomers a few days ago she was able to get herself into a patch of burrs this morning & get looking like her old self again!!
MY TRAIL GROOMING HELPERS THIS MORNING
All RV folks at one time or another have to make the transition from driving an ordinary sized car to something much bigger. Some of those transitions were probably done slowly & calmly. My transition from a small vehicle to a larger vehicle came rather suddenly. FROM A VW BEETLE TO A BIG SQUARE GREEN DINOSAUR.
ALONG THE MORNING TRAIL >>>
GROANER'S CORNER:(( When the doctors were told to contribute to the construction of a new wing at a hospital:
The allergists voted to scratch it.
The dermatologists preferred no rash moves.
The gastroenterologists had a gut feeling about it.
The micro-surgeons were thinking along the same vein.
The neurologists thought the administration had a lot of nerve.
The obstetricians stated they were laboring under a misconception.
The ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.
The orthopedists issued a joint resolution.
The parasitologists said, "Well, if you encyst".
The pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!"
The pediatricians said, "Grow up".
The proctologists said, "We are in arrears".
The psychiatrists thought it was madness.
The surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.
The radiologists could see right through it.
The internists thought it was a hard pill to swallow.
The plastic surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter".
The podiatrists thought it was a big step forward.
The D.O.s thought they were being manipulated.
The urologists felt the scheme wouldn't hold water.
The anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas.
The cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.
And the otologists were deaf to the idea.
Obviously the hospital's new wing never got built!!
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.
