Aug 26, 2015 - Good News

Good News! My biopsy came back negative. And, that means we will be on road beginning this Monday. Yay! Here is the tentative plan...subject to change without notice, of course. On Monday we head back to Deming (I know...but, stay with me) to pick up more insulin and needles for Toby, stop in Mexico to pick up some meds, and for John have his last ATV ride. Only for 3 days. Then, head up on Interstate 180, I think, and stop wherever we want to on our way to Seattle. Not sure how long it will take us to get there, but we are in no hurry....

Aug 23, 2015 - Sunday, Sunday

Had a super exciting day today. Went to Walmart to shop! Ha, had you going there for just a sec. I am such a card! It rained off and on and I will say it was very welcome. The best part is that it dropped our temps into the 80's which is almost sweater weather. Remind me not to complain about being too cold, cause I promise, I will forget about how hot we are right now. Hey, I'm a senior, we have short term memory losses, remember? Since it was such a boring day....as they all seem to be lately, I am giving you another RV story. This one is...

Aug 21, 2015 - Taking a shower in an RV

The only thing of interest that we did today was go out for dinner at the little cafe about 10 minutes away. Arrey Cafe. John had their steak special and it was huge. But, man that he is, he completed all but a few pieces that he saved for Toby. When we got home, Toby could smell it with his hyperactive long nose and jumped up and down. The first piece I think he swallowed whole. Take a few minutes, enjoy, savor...whomp, down went another piece. So much for his fine dining experience. We found another hilarious "what it's like to be a full...

This will keep you laughing. John and I busted up over this entry on Facebook. We could totally identify. Especially, the bit about the gas station and so many people watching you try to park your RV. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did...even if you have never RV'd....you will love it! Transport and Set Up of Your RV: Step 1: Hook RV up to your truck. Remember to hook up turn signal/ battery charger, sway bars, chains, and emergency brake to truck. Step 2: Pick up all outside chairs, floor mats, grills, ect... try to fit them...

Aug 19, 2015 - Uncle Pinky

My heart is breaking as I just learned that my dear Uncle Pinky passed away 5 days ago. My cousin didn't know how to reach me, but found me here on the journal, thank goodness. He was a funny, interesting and great man. He used to tell people that he was 5 years older than he really was cause he loved hearing them say "but, you look so much younger." He was the Grand Poo Pah (cannot remember what the title was) of the Elk's Club in the State of Maryland. He loved attention and was quite the ladies man, even though he and Aunt Mildred were...

Aug 18, 2015 - Tuesday in the Sun

Yes, it is still hot and yes, we have still not gone anywhere. I am learning the inside of the RV quite intimately. We are actually thinking of venturing out tomorrow....Whoops, I shouldn't have said anything...jinxing us. So, here is a flash back to Vermont in 2012. A beautiful state. We loved it. We only got to spend a day there and covered a lot of territory. Would love to go back someday and see more. Beautiful Vermont Okay, I know you are missing New Mexico information...so not to disappoint...here is something to think about. The U.S....

Aug 16, 2015 - 100 degree weather does not feel good

I had the dreaded colonoscopy. How can I say yuk, iky and horrible to give you the idea of what I felt about the prep? Why can't they make that stuff taste better? And, if it has to taste so awful (do you think they taste it themselves?) could they at least cut the dosage down from a gallon? Enuff said about that. Unfortunately, I have to have it done again in a few weeks. But, one of my readers, Thank You Kaye, gave me the hint that adding some apple juice may help the taste. I will let you all know. It has been in the 100's, so once...

Aug 11, 2015 - Power Surge

Last night we had the most rain, thunder and lightening we have had so far. The windows at times, seemed like someone was shining a light by them. And, one thunder bolt boomed so loud that it practically made us jump out of bed. By this morning all was well again, and the rain was gone. Today was our 1 month stay here at the RV park, so we had to pay the month rate plus the electricity we used. We had a doctor's appointment in Las Cruces so we decided to settle up when we returned. Unfortunately, I need a colonoscopy. Yuk...double YUK!...

Aug 9, 2015 - Monticello & Placita

We headed out this morning to see the last 2 Ghost Towns on our list of 9. It was about an hour drive to Placita and Monticello. It was a pretty lonely journey on a two lane highway with only a couple cars besides us. We passed through the barren landscape with barely a sign of life until we came upon some cattle grazing along side of the road. Mama's with babies nursing, they looked at us, then glanced away. A couple bellows along the way. Our first stop was Placita, which is also called Las Placita and Placitas, meaning little Plaza....

Aug 8, 2015 - Old Post

Am still not feeling up to snuff, whatever that means. Kind of a stupid saying, isn't it? Guess I will have to look it up and see if I can find a mean. Tobacco related??? It was the coolest day we have had yet. Under 90 degrees with a late afternoon rain storm that was pretty short lived. I love hearing the rain on the roof of the RV, it sounds like little pebbles. Since we haven't gone anywhere lately I feel kind of guilty not entering anything in the journal. I think you might enjoy a throw back to the past, say August of 2012 when were...

Aug 6, 2015 - Birthdays

It is amazing to have three adult sons. They are wonderful and have been so good to their Mom. I am so blessed to have David, Michael and Alex in my life. I miss them all the time. One of the things I do for hobby, as well as adding a few bucks to the coffers, is sell postcards on eBay. I love it and am presently corresponding with another enthusiast who has opened my eyes to the cards I have on hand and how I will pick ones to sell in the future. Some are in amazing shape, some not too good with a bit of soiling and tears or creases. But,...

Aug 4, 2015 - Tuesday in New Mexico

Had to get a new computer as mine would not allow me to go online and would shut down for no reason. So, after researching I ordered online a new Toshiba. Love it, but haven't been able to transfer my photos from the last few years. I am a dunce at copy and paste when it comes to photos and documents. I do like it, however. Both of us have felt poorly the last few days. No energy and lack of interest in doing anything. Hopefully, tomorrow will be another day...a good day. Took a few photos on our walk around the park tonight with Toby. He...
