Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico – Day 33
July 22, 2012
The motorhome is still parked here at Heron Lake State Park about 20 miles south of Chama, New Mexico while I am recovering from my May 27th accident.
My right ribcage area remains slightly swollen and tender to the touch. I’m pleased to report some progress…with the exceptions of a cough or a sneeze, the poppings, with the associated pains, in my chest have finally stopped! I remain taking Ibuprofen, icing my ribcage area 2-3 times a day and wearing an elastic bandage abound my chest. The doctors told me to expect 6-12 weeks for recovery. The accident occurred eight weeks ago today. Can you tell I’m ready for the recovery to be finished?
While on a walk the other day, i noticed this interesting critter. I’ve seen lots of lizards. They all tend to be long and skinny…like a cigarette with four short legs and a tail. This guy was really different. He’s only about two inches long…from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail. He’s also quite pre-historic looking…
As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…
Back on July 9th I took this photo of a common lizard using my camera’s illustration mode. This mode really makes him look pre-historic…
Seeing interesting critters out in nature is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
