Life ain't easy

Boy howdy Billy Bob, you done did it again.

Ya see, I've knowed for a long time that this old body ain't gonna hold up forever and things is gonna fall apart sooner or later. Well, that is what is happen'n right now. This little episode with the high blood pressure just added to the equation, along with all the other stuff what been happen'n in the last year. Although I got my blood pressure back down to a somewhat normal level (122/70), I feel the effects it has caused. For those unfamiliar with high blood pressure, any time it goes over 170/100, it takes something out ya and it take time to get it back.

Now to top all that off, I just ran out of fresh water brew'n a pot this morn'n and my freak'n propane tank is plumb empty. But that's my fault from think'n I knowed what I was do'n. So now I got to go outside in this freez'n cold, trample through the blinding snow drifts and hook up the little 5# propane tank.......what I did. Ahhhhh!!!......Mr Buddy heater come on like magic. The water situation is a different story. Got to go downtown, fill my two 7 gallon water jugs and pump them into my house tank. Might sound easy to you, but it ain't.

I was hoping to pull out of here tomorrow (Monday), but it looks like I'm off in a dream world again. On the agenda....sounds like Obama huh, I have to make a trip to the Island (Port Aransas) to pick up my mail in hopes my new debit card is in it. If not, I got to wait till it arrives. Then I still got to make the Walmart run for the necessities of life....food and such to last for the next month. For the day of departure, fuel up "Sally da house", fill propane tanks, find a place to fill the fresh water tank and a place to dump the gray and black water tanks. I had thought bout go'n to a r/v park for a night just to take care of the water and dump, but that decision is on the back burner. But of course, I could wait till I get to Falcon Lake for all the water related tasks.

  2. The weather is bad all over Texas. We had sleet that made it look like it snowed.

    Take your time but most importantly take care of yourself.

    Falcon Lake will always be there.

  5. I'm only two years younger than you, hope I'm not in that shape when I hit 70.

    Maybe you should ditch the motor home and seek out an easier lifestyle for an old fart with medical problems?

  6. I been studying your header picture and while it looks just about like a typical redneck camp, I got one question. WHERE IS THE SHOTGUN ? Plus you need a bunch more dogs. Pictures or plywood cutouts will do .

  7. For a long time, I've been sayin', "If I had know'd I wuz gonna live this long, I'da taken better care o' mysef." Too late now so I jes keep patchin' and pluggin' along.

    Go see a quack and get some stuff looked at. Might need a little "Roto-Rootin'" ta open things back up. Better to do it now than to wait until the guvmint "Death Panels" get put in place.
