Cellulites Again!

This time it is in my right leg.  I went right down to tiny Benson Hospital and was out the door with a prescription for cephaleexin is about 30 minutes after Dr’s examination.20151212_162446

We had .58” of rain on Wednesday evening, to desert will celebrate by exploding into color is  a few days as this is a huge rainfall out here.

We were visited by good friends Charlie & Dawn Boles.  They are host camping about about 100 miles south of here, we are going to ‘drop into see them’ today.  First I had to get the heavy coats out as they are at 6,000 feet.

Busy Weekend, havin Fun 2015

Sometimes We need a fun weekend.  That’s the path we took this weekend.

Friday Night started with a community carol sing  roaming the park with gaily decorated golf carts and costume.  It followed up with a pot luck which we were unprepared for due to our resent visit to Tucson Hospital.

We did some ‘landscaping’ at the lot, this consisted of Anne-Marie moving pavers.  Saturday evening we went to  a great dance.  The band was The Old School House Band, the were just full of 0’s & 70’s era music.

On Sunday we went to church at   http://straphael.azdiocese.org/visitors/welcome_visitors.html This is a wonderful concept of blending an E.L.C.A. church with an Episcopal congregation to fill the building and bring a greater recourses to

A 100 Mile jaunt for breakfast!



Bisbee is a small eclectic town about 50 mile south of us on RT-80 which meanders threw to hills and desert in the area.  Think ‘P-Town’ or a mini Key West.  One of the big draws is a visit to the Bisbee Breakfast Club.  They will put a smile on your face and fill your belly!

Another major attraction in the area is the now defunct Copper Queen Mine, which was a major copper source from 1870 to 1970, responding o the commercial and military need of that era.

I sure is one big hole in the ground, imagine working here in typical Arizona heat?



Lots of derelict cars parked on side streets, The ‘55 Dodge hardtop would make an unusual & dandy modern cruiser.


We arrive back at camp with just about enough time to go to the Ice Cream Social.  $.50 a scoop and if it’s your birthday month it’s free.  Another win for me!

Feeling Better Here!

Last Tuesday I went to see my Doctor at Benson’s San Pedro because I was very short of breath.  After checking my vitals She advised me to drive to Tucson Hospital and walk into the E.R. Department.  This I did with great results.  I was quickly admitted to cardiac care unit and my cardiologist responded and ordered a rather extensive cardiac work-up.  This included an ultrasound (Check previously diagnosed valve problem status.) and an angiogram to check for blockages.  The good news is the my cardiac function is very good for someone with about 25 years of these problems.  Can I get an AMEN!


The bad news is that my pulmonary system was a train wreck.  I’ve been ducking the doctors for too long.  The good news is that if I pay attention for a few months I should be able to correct most of the damage.  Walk to tolerance, Drastically reduce added salt, Worst item is about 14 hours per day of water pills until I dry out.

Lots of Doctors appointments to make in the next few days.  I am trying to schedule around the annual Quartzite Elk’s Rally where there is lots to buy and networking to be done.

This is a Bounder (not ours!)  I think the owners start decorating on Labor Day!  I think the leg lamp is very cool!


Best to you all,
