Operation Day

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. While here I’ll perform routine maintenance and cleaning of both the motorhome and Bronco.


Mary had surgery on her right shoulder yesterday.

I want to assist her during recovery however I can. I assisted her with her left shoulder surgery in 2009. Whenever it’s convenient and I know that she is comfortable, I’ll make my future travel plans at that time.

We departed her home at 7:30 AM, with a 1.5 hour drive…

At 1:45 PM we loaded her into the car for the trip home. She slept most of the way…

She made it through her first night with only a little discomfort. The biggest inconvenience is that she is right-handed and now has to try to do everything with her left hand. I’m there to assist her with most things. She’ll wear the sling for six weeks before beginning physical therapy. Full recovery takes six months.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was sunny and 68 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 75 degrees.

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

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity 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!
