May 20, 2019 - Little Rock, AR

Well, we finally got out of Texas. Damn... that is one big state! Continuing directly east we headed to Little Rock, Arkansas. Again, it was an uneventful drive and within a few hours we were parked next to the Arkansas River with beautiful views. When I checked into the RV park, the manager was so helpful in giving me a map and showing me how we could walk to all the places I wanted to go that day including the Clinton Library and the sculpture garden. I also picked up a flier about an early bird steak dinner at a local restaurant that...

May 14, 2019 - I guess we can call this the quick six...days that is

Beth was better and Pat and Bridget were here so the race was on. It was on to take advantage of them being here for a few days and it was a few days until Beth's next treatment. And...it continued to rain. And then it rained a little more. Since there are doctors visits and other items I will sail through some of the days. Thursday, Sue and I visited our dermatologist and both of us had some small places removed. And as usual I had several places frozen on my head. Then back to the Bus. We visited for a while and then had a dinner...

May 8, 2019 - The week in review

It has been a week since I last posted. There are only two reasons that this occurs. One is there is nothing going on and the second is we are going so fast I am too tired to sit down and try to get everything added. In this case it is an example of one following the other. But, here is what has been going on with us... Thursday: It rained all Wednesday night and the water was standing around the back of the Bus. Several inches standing. Ziva and I walked just as it stopped raining for a few minutes, and I got the picture of the dam gates...

Dec 4, 2018 - Last two days in the Rock...

We had planned to leave on Tuesday but it became apparent during the day that we were not ready...for various reasons. So we booked one more night. Monday, we were up at 4:45 to prepare for my MRI in NLR. We were ready to leave at the planned time of 5:45 a.m. (for my brother Dan that does not know that early exists) and I took my relaxation pill. I still have an issue being stuck in that tube...even if it is just up to my chin. We arrived a little after 6:15 and got in and ready for my call back at 6:30. Then I was back on the rack and...

Dec 2, 2018 - Four days in the fast lane

I hope we are close to wrapping up our fall visit to LR and all the doctors. It is amazing that I still have two appointments tomorrow that were not on my original schedule. We start tomorrow with an early MRI early (6:30 a.m.). At 2:00 p.m. I am back at the dentist to have my permanent crown installed. Then throw in that we still have to go back to get the truck at Crain in Conway. Then all the little things to get ready to travel on Tuesday...hopefully. Anyway, here is what we have been doing the last few days. Thursday morning I was up...

Nov 28, 2018 - Three hard days of the last week in LR

This is the last full week in LR. In some ways it seems like it was just last week and in other ways I am tired of being here for the last six months. We returned to LR in July and in some ways have been tethered to LR and we have been back so many times...it is time to go. But first there is still a handful of items to take care of this week. Monday morning I left after Ziva's nature walk and headed for the cleaners. I had two pair of jeans that needed their attention. I was then off to Conway to get some things done to the Canyon while it...

Nov 25, 2018 - Thanksgiving and the long weekend

This is the 180th entry of the year. Amazing I have had so much to say...Before I detail the last four days, let me say...there is a front coming through Little Rock this evening with winds up to 40 mph. Sustained winds are in the 25 mph range and the temperature has dropped from 65 around 4:00 p.m. to 37 degrees here just before 10:00 p.m. Too cold. The wind chill is around 27 degrees. This means WE hear Yuma calling. We are hoping that the crown on the 3rd will be our last medical stop. If so, we are southbound on the 4th. We have...

Nov 21, 2018 - Doctors, Doctors, etc...

November is doctor visit month and this week started like that was all we were going to do this week. It has been good in that Haley and her family arrived Monday evening, so the entire family is around close for the first time in a while. We will all be together for Thanksgiving dinner. WooHoo!!! Monday started with an early trip to the endocrinologist. I love 7:40 appointments when I have to fast. In and out in 30 minutes with only a small admonishment about my A1C being up from last time. I explained the 10 days of trying to eat out in...

Nov 18, 2018 - Not busy...but where has the time gone...

It does not seem that it is exciting enough to talk about doctors appointments and other such endeavors. But as I compose my thoughts about what we have done over the past five days...it seems like we were busy the entire time... Wednesday we were at St Vincent's for Sue at 6:30 a.m. We were out by 10:15...much different than what we were told on Tuesday. We had been told Sue would not be discharged until after 1:00 p.m. Oh well, we were off to breakfast at IHOP. Then back to the Bus for Sue to get settled in for a sleepy afternoon. I had...

Nov 16, 2018 - William J Clinton Presidential Center

Well, this is it. Today was my last day of touristy stuff. Tomorrow I head for Bonnie and Greg’s for Thanksgiving w/ a stop tomorrow night in Oxford Alabama which is east of Birmingham. I then finished up on Sunday. Each of those legs is a bit over 6 hours. Should be home by next Saturday. Was at the William J Clinton Presidential Center today at 9 when they opened. Of course, they had an introductory film and then there was a volunteer docent led tour if you were interested. I don’t recall this being an option at any of the other museums...

Nov 13, 2018 - Three days of lousy weather

Sunday was a slow paced day, due to weather. Cooler than it had been and colder weather on the way. We did not want to go anywhere due to the truck issues. We washed clothes and kept the water flowing to the Bus until about 8:00 p.m. Sue and I unhooked everything before the colder temperatures (below freezing) hit and the rain started. We managed to get to bed early in anticipation of Monday being a busy day. The rain started on Monday about 3:00 a.m. It rained off and on all day. I took the truck back to Conway and left it. They furnished...

Nov 10, 2018 - A week behind

It has ben a week since I updated the journal. So let me see if I can in some short fashion update what we have been up to this week. Sunday was a do nothing day. We stayed in almost all day to adjust to the new time. Dark at 5:00 p.m. is a new experience. We did get out late in the afternoon to run to the store, and Lowe's. We made that run but the truck went back into malfunction mode. As usual, we were able to get it started after a few minutes and stopped by Sonic and then back to the Bus. Monday was a slow day with a trip to Dr....
