I am way behind on blogs. Not sure where the time goes anymore. So a quick recap of our last week or so.
Tuesday we drove down to Casa Grande to Jan and Bill’s for dinner and a get together with a couple of other Montana RV owners. Lots of visiting and even though Jan says she doesn’t cook she really made some great beans to go with our hamburgers that Bill grilled. I drove down and back just to keep myself in driving shape.
Wednesday was Jim’s doctor appointment. No news – just more tests. He had more blood work done and hopefully we’ll get results shortly. He also has to do a poop test to find out if he’s bleeding internally. This is all to try and figure out why he is anemic. The other thing he needs to have done is a colonoscopy. (OH JOY) The earliest appointment the gastroenterologist had was April 4. So it will be awhile before we have to suffer through that one.
After the appointment we met Paul for lunch at The District. We had a Groupon for a couple of burgers and milkshakes. Very interesting place. Not a place we would normally hang out – mainly a bar with a lot of outdoor seating. I’m sure it is really happening on the week-ends. But the burgers were good and so were the shakes.
Jim’s been doing some projects around here. Got the back up camera working again on the truck. Flushed the hot water tank and got a new anode rod put in. Changed water filters. Helped Mickey put the battery in their motorcycle. He, Marv and Ken put new batteries in the fifth wheel. We discovered the old ones were shot when the power went out.
Friday we checked out Paul’s new RV. It is gorgeous. A brand new Newmar Ventana. The color scheme is one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen in an RV.
Sunday we went to visit Aunt Happy. She always has a couple of projects for Jim to help her with. Like getting things down off the top shelf, gluing her blind rod back together, making sure all her pens write and throwing out the old ones, cleaning out her humidifier. Just odds and ends.
Last night winter hit Arizona in the form of WIND and rain. Snow in the high country. Not much sleep because of the wind but thankfully it’s calmed down tonight. It only got into the low 50’s today and just felt really cold to me. We decided the best thing to do was to go to a movie (along with every other retired person in town).
Paul joined us and we went to see Bridge of Spies at the $2 theater. What a great movie. We all really enjoyed it. I have always like all of Tom Hanks’ movies.
That’s about it from here. Hope to get togethere with a few more people before too long.
