This the story of our journey, Into Something Good, going Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and trying to Hold Onto Our Dreams. How we got on the way to becoming HALF time RVers! Our Ford 350 super duty diesel truck is our horses, we call it the Beast . Our 2008 34'7" 3 slide Cedar Creek Silverback fifth wheel is our Prairie Schooner Wagon,we call it the Bear. Just like the first RVers, the Pioneers of Yesteryear traveling around the country searching for a rich full filling life! Come along with us for the ride and read about our triumphs and mishaps along the way! About to be Part time RVers in a Cedar Creek Silverback 2008, 34'7", 3 slide 5th wheel, which is our Prairie Schooner Wagon, and a 2006 Ford 350 super duty 1 ton diesel truck is our horses, or oxen, only we have to feed it diesel instead of grass, and oats, which costs a lot more! Retired Air Force empty nesters off to see the good ole USA! Favorite Quote: "Life is a Blank Canvas, Made For Me to Add the Colors" Goal: I am trying to add as many colors as I can to my life!

Sorry I Was MIA for a Couple of Days

Yesterday:
   Well we made it to my doctor's appointment! The base was on a 2 hr delay because of the cold white stuff!  We got there about 10:15 a.m. I called first and they said to come on in. My appointment was supposed to be at 8:20a.m. The roads weren't too bad, and the scenery was beautiful, even if I didn't like it. We didn't get home from the medical center until after 3p.m. with all the pre -op stuff yesterday. 

Surgery:
   Tomorrow I am going to have out patient surgery on my left foot. I probably won't do a post tomorrow, as I don't know what time we will get back from the hospital.They are going to relocate a bone in my foot near my big toe joint and try to straighten out the joint.  It is full of arthritis and very swollen around the joint. The bone will have to be cut, shaved  then be shifted, and will be kept in place for healing either with a pin or a screw.This means no weight on my left foot for 6 weeks, and I get to wear a wonderful very cool designer  open toe shoe! (surgical shoe) Very high end ha ha! Crutches and a wheel chair will be my mode of transportation until it is healed. We will have to put our first outing in the RV back a couple of weeks, but this way the whole Summer won't totally be messed up. That is why I chose to do it now instead of in mid April, and I will be able to get right back into walking the dogs in mid June. Wish me luck!  The dogs are already barking at the crutches, so it should at least be good for some stories Lol!  I have some things to do and get together for the hospital so this will be a short post.

It's MELTING:
   The white stuff has been melting all day, and it is completely off the trees.  It is very wet and muddy outside now, but at least that awful white stuff is going away. The sooner the better as far as I'm concerned.  I'll even take April showers over this stuff if it is half way warm.  Now you watch I'll probably gripe about the rain after a few weeks!  I'll let ya tell me I told ya so!  Ha ha!  

   Okay, I really do have to get busy today, so I'll see ya's on the flip side!  Happy travels where ever you may be...

I always wonder if people are following the blog. I thought I'd say I'm enjoying yours so much. I'll be thinking of you with the surgery.

Thanks for posting.
