SELFIE REFLECTION IN THE JEEP’S SIDE WINDOW
Kelly brought so many vitamins home from the health store today I almost needed the wheelbarrow to bring them all in. So here’s what we got, RX Omega-3 900mg Fish Oil, Ascorbate C 500mg, Magsnesium 200mg, Vitamin D3 1000 IU, Complexe B, and B12 Methylcobalamine 5000 mcg. And Kelly did stress these are all from a knowledgeable health store and not Walmart. Figured all them pills weren’t doin no good just sitting in the bottles so I tested a few of them and took off like a rocket:))
A LOT OF EMPTY SAILBOAT SLIPS
ALL THOSE NARROW WALKWAY DOCKS HAVE TO COME OUT OF THE WATER FOR WINTER AS WELL
FOR OBVIOUS REASONS THERE WERE NO FISHERMEN ON BAYFIELD’S PIER THIS MORNING
Woke up feeling better about things this morning and it wasn’t long before I had my Mojo working again. Under clear blue skies Pheebs and I rolled through Bayfield and headed south out into the countryside. Even stopped to wash the Jeep at Bayfield’s car wash. We cruised around for a couple hours stopping here and there for a few leg stretches and photos. Just another great Autumn day to be outside. Think we got up to just over 60F which is mighty fine with me. Much healthier and invigorating air than that miserably inhibiting hot summer stuff!!
AND THAT BE LAKE HURON WAY OUT THERE
I WAS HARD PRESSED TO FIND ANY FLOWERS LEFT AT THIS LITTLE MEMORIAL PARK EAST OF ZURICH
Cool winds up from the south today were much nicer than Monday’s icy north winds. If we held it down to 20 mph Pheebs and I could cruise along with the front windows down and the heater on half blast. Groovy.
OUR TRAVELS ONCE AGAIN TOOK US THROUGH THE HAY SWAMP
VERY STAGNANT WATER
We were home shortly after 11 and I immediately busied myself with my ‘to do’ lists. More windows washed as well and two more Frogs moved to the bigger Park pond. Home from Goderich around 1 Kelly checked the phone in case any important calls had tried to come in. None had. ‘HOWEVER’……..at 4:18 this afternoon our phone rang!!
WHERE ARE THE AUTUMN COLORS????
LEG STRETCH STOP ALONGSIDE A BEANFIELD ON THE LEFT
DOWN LOW IN A BEAN FIELD
AND THERE’S A PHEEBS OUT THERE IN THAT BEAN FIELD TOO
AND BY GOLLY THERE’S A REAL LIVE FARMER OUT CHECKING HIS BEANS
THIS FARMER HAS ALREADY STARTED TAKING A FEW ROWS OF CORN OFF
NOPE WE JUST DON’T HAVE THE ABUNDANCE OF BEAUTIFUL AUTUMN COLORS THIS YEAR:((
The call we had been anxiously waiting for was now at hand and it was Kelly’s London Doctor. Right off there seemed to be some confusion. Doctor said he hadn’t submitted the scan to the board yet and told Kelly he’s looked over the scan and told her not to worry but to call him at the end of next week. We had been led to believe the scan had been reviewed by the tumor board last Tuesday. So all this time we have been worrying and waiting for the results from this board when in fact her scan had not even been submitted yet. When Kelly got off the phone she said, “well that’s enough of that and I think we should just plan on heading South like we normally do”. We talked it over a bit and decided that is exactly what we will do. We’re not going to sit around in a big apprehensive fog of indecision for another week. We’ll go ahead and start our travel preparations and if at the end of next week when she talks to her Doctor again there is a change then we’ll just deal with it at that time. We always leave on a Saturday so I’d like to see us on the road November 11th depending on weather of course. Like March, November’s weather here can turn on a dime and I do not want to be dealing with ice and snow on salt infested roads and interstates!!
THIS FARM YARD LOOKS MORE LIKE A GOLF COURSE
ALL LINED UP AND READY TO GO TO WORK
A BOAT AND A BARN
THIS OLD TIMER HAS SEEN BETTER DAYS
It’s been a very emotionally worrisome few weeks for us and especially Kelly. I don’t think we’re out of the woods on this yet but with her Doctor telling her not to worry about it Kelly said that is just what she is going to do, ‘not worry about it’.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A man suffered a heart attack and had by-pass surgery. He awakened to find himself in the care of nuns at a Catholic hospital. As he was recovering, a nun asked him how he was going to pay the bill. He replied in a raspy voice, "No health insurance." The nun asked if he has money in the bank. He replied "No money in the bank." The nun asked " Do you have a relative who could help you?" He said "Just a spinster sister who is a nun." The nun, slightly perturbed, said "Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God." The patient replied, "Then send the bill to my brother-in-law!"
During an auction of exotic pets, a woman who had placed a winning bid told the auctioneer, "I'm paying a fortune for that parrot. I hope he talks as well as you say he does." "I guarantee it, madam," replied the auctioneer. "Who do you think was bidding against you?"
Arizona room for one of us in this here town!!
Glad the sun is shining brighter for the three of you.ReplyDelete
Our thoughts and prayers are with you that everything works out! I think it is good to plan on the positive side :-)ReplyDelete
No news is good news. You are making a good decision. You have enough blog readers that if something does happen you and Kelly can hop on a plane and someone will either store the moho for you or drive it back home for you.ReplyDelete
Awesome... the AZ stars are calling your name, I hear them each night.... hurry to your SW home.... By the way... tell Kelly to check her FB messages..ReplyDelete
I'm glad to read this. If the Dr. says not to worry that sounds like a "Go" to me.ReplyDelete
Hoping all turns out well!!ReplyDelete
I know Dr.'s are busy but this is so slow. Happy you have decided to make your way southwest before you get stuck in the winter wonderland.ReplyDelete
Way to go. Take charge of your destiny. Hope to see you three again this winter.Delete
Frustrating! That's the problem with health care providers' staffs...not necessarily the physicians. Someone did not have the right info when s/he said Kelly's scans had been sent to the board. We have noticed here that communication amongst the staff and physicians in every office isn't always effective! That being said...to quote Flowergirl, no news IS good news.Delete
Two more frogs? I thought the last two was all of them, perhaps they are hopping back. You may have to drain the pond for a while. Getting moving will be good for the mind and have you guys ready to travel.ReplyDelete
So very glad you are heading south. Can't imagine it wouldn't be wonderful for Kelly to get some southwest sunshine. Wish you safe travels and nothing to jangle your plans.ReplyDelete
So happy to hear you are going south. I think you made the right decision, you will both feel better making plans, rather than waiting for a Dr to phoneReplyDelete
Carry on with life and enjoy the southwest this winter is a great plan and good for both your mind and body.ReplyDelete
Good News. Go for it!ReplyDelete
Check out magnesium l-threonate. Virtually everyone is deficient in it and this one is very absorbable. Also can find info under "magtein." One more thing to maybe toss into the wheel barrow. Magnesium relaxes, calcium stiffens. It appears we have more than enough calcium, but are deficient in magnesium.
I usually look at all your photos but have to admit that I skip to the end to get to the decision this time. :-) Great plan. It's human to worry but also a waste of precious time.ReplyDelete
YAY! The Southwest is awaiting your arrival!ReplyDelete
Good news!!! We will be waiting!ReplyDelete
Well the health issue is obviously not an emergency so get on with your decision and have fun preparing.ReplyDelete
In the words of a great author.."WAHOOEY LOUIE"!!!!!!!! Let's get those big wheels rollin'!'ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing you down here this year.ReplyDelete
Ditto: "WAHOOEY LOUIE"!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
