1/14/93 Thursday Picked up the trailer ($505) and headed south with a dry snow drifting across I-65, looking like white sand in a stiff breeze in the desert. Really glad to be going. At first rest area lug nuts still hot. Four hours la... Read more

1/12/93 Left home - got as far as the first rest stop on I65. Don Rivers warned me that one wheel wasn’t turning when it was on the snow in our driveway, but we continued. We finally got started about 11:00 AM – tires were steaming (in the ra... Read more

This was from some notes in a book that I wrote just after my retirement, and just before and after we left on the first trip with a 26 foot travel trailer and a 2/3 ton conversion van. 1/11/93 Moved clothes to trailer. Bought antifreeze... Read more

Today is the BW's day to eat out - she says. After a noon doctor visit, she wants to visit either Kally K's or Iris's Grill, or maybe Ivory. She had a birthday, and we had a 54th anniversary, which is really a long time to be married to the sa... Read more

I rolled out at 5:40 this morning, and made it to Nelson's by 6:10. We set up and made pancakes and sausage until 11:30, then cleaned up. I brought a bunch of stuff home and washed it, and now it's nearly 4 PM, so I've sort of wasted a Sunday.... Read more

When I lost my right kidney because of kidney cancer the one left (the left one) couldn't quite handle the load, and was somewhat out of specification, which got my internist excited. After reading some, I ate vegan for a couple of years becaus... Read more

The computer is still getting well - when I turned it on today the processor was at 100 per cent activity for at least ten minutes, installing updates. There was no indication how many, but my impression was that a lot got changed. Then, when ... Read more

The computer continued to get better today - it wanted to update with Service Pack 3 as soon as I turned it on today, and there were several more updates. It's still a world faster than it used to be, but it has slowed up a little. I looked at... Read more

Today I walked 3.5 miles by myself, then took the dogs for another mile walk, had breakfast, and played with the computer some more. The desktop now has the version 8 of Internet Explorer (the latest version that will run on XP), no longer has ... Read more

Yesterday I had a series of problems with this computer, and finally ended up with it not only failing to start, but also not responding to a boot disk. I was confused, and was going to try pulling the hard drive and, if that didn't fix the pro... Read more

Thursday I spent six hours up in New Port Richey with the overflow doctor, having one skin cancer off my scalp. When I was done, the nurse told me they would rather I didn't shave my head, so I think I'll just have two weeks worth of stubble wh... Read more

A few years ago I had small plaques in both carotid arteries. Two or three years later I had no plaques in either artery. At that time I was riding my Aerdyne at more than 400 calories per hour for an hour at least five times per week, and not... Read more

A couple of weeks ago, the local PBS station was having fund raising pitches, so the BW wanted to watch Netflix instead of her favorite mystery or Masterpiece Mystery. I saw another program that came on after the regular show, at 11 PM. It las... Read more
