Southaven, Mississippi – Day 3

The motorhome is now parked at VFW Post #10567 in Southaven, Mississippi. The location is about 1/4 mile south of the Tennessee Border and about 10 miles south of the City of Memphis. We will stay here while we explore the Memphis area for the next several days.

Yesterday was both hot and humid. About 85 degrees and % humidity. The Weather Wimp…as Mary calls me, says…Yuk!!!

I drove the Bronco the about seven miles to meet Mary at the Memphis Airport. She arrived at 6:00 PM. She was in a condition of which I have not seen her before. A few days ago she re-arranged her living room furniture and a couple of days later ended up with a very painful neck…and cannot lift anything…

She got a good night’s sleep and feels somewhat better this morning. As I write this, she thinks she will call an acupuncturist first thing this morning and try to get an appointment asap. One thing we have both noticed is that she tends to feel physically better on the road in the motorhome than at her home in California. Hopefully she will soon be up and jumping around again. 🙂

It was so hot in the motorhome when we returned that we sat outside enjoying a nice breeze and watched a hazy sunset…




In addition to hopefully get an acupuncture appointment, we need to get her unpacked and moved back in and probably do a little grocery shopping. Hopefully by tomorrow she’ll feel well enough to start doing a little sightseeing.

Enjoying a nice companionship is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

    Hi Jim and Mary,

    I so look forward to reading your blogs!! One thing I wanted to say is how impressed I am that (no matter the situation), Mary has that big smile on her face…you go girl!! I read Mary’s blog today (I’m at my daughter Debi’s home in NJ (have been for two weeks to help her pack up and move).

    The aches and pains of which she spoke, are certainly relatable, as I’ve been doing so much bending, lifting and dragging. I’m about to board a plane to go back home this afternoon, and am pressed for time, but I’m looking forward to watching the video Mary sent from “idoctor” to see if I can get myself some answers. I’m sure a lot of my friends can use it too.

    Thank you Mary for taking the time to share it with us!

    Love and hugs, and healing thoughts,


  2. I so hope Mary is up and jumping around soon!

      Hi Bev,
      Thanks for your good words. I had a therapist contact me and suggested I try the MELT process. I ordered the book on-line which will go to my house. I’ll let you know if it’ worth its salt.

        Great – I’ll look forward to hearing how it all turns out! Have fun you two! Bev

      Not quite jumping yet, but I’ll get there. Thanks for all your good wishes.
