New lease on life

Boy howdy let me tell ya......yesterday was a successful day. Sit right here in the liv'n room of "Sally da house" and watch another beautiful sunrise light up the sky with amazing colors. Worth ever minute of lost sleep.

Then I sit down in front the computer with a blank stare on my face. There was nuttin, absolutely nuttin, I wanted to write about. Now don't get me wrong. I ain't say'n I didn't do stuff, 'cause I did. Member that stik I'm mak'n? Well, it's been sanded, stained and three coats of polyurethane have been applied. The "eagle has landed" project is coming along just fine. It's gonna be a beautiful piece of art....I betcha a dollar.

Did I mention I bought me up a brand spank'n new BBQ grill? Well, I fire that sucker up last night to burn me a steak. Holy crap, that sucker up to 625 degs. That aughter burn anything. What it did....perfect. Burn all around the edges, nice grill marks and juicy red on the inside. Too bad it weren't a big ol' T-bone.

Speak'n of T-bone, have ya look at the prices of meat in the stores? My God, you would think they was feed'n them cows gold coated hay. Here in Deming....T-bone $12.95....or something like that. I like to splurge onest in a while, but this is ridiculous.

Made my doctor appointment right on the money....Billy Bob is never late. Gained back all that weight I lost a couple year ago.....back up to a romp'n stomp'n 150 pound. Then the nice lady check my height. Holy crap, I done shrinked another 1/2 inches. I used to be 6 foots ya know......not really. Now I'm 5 foots 8 inches. What the hell????

Any hows, had a nice visit with my Dr Fronkinsteen....that not really his name. A EKG was performed, along with all the usual pok'n an' prob'n. Question and answer session proved out to be good news.....I'm better than a year ago. But I'm no longer allowed to "conserve" my medications as I did for the last 6 months. I guess I'm good to go for another exciting year of travel and adventure.

Speak'n of travel and adventure. It ain't like it used to be. With my new lease on life, I'm think'n I'm gonna attempt to make me some changes this year.  I'll never be able to catch up to some the other RV'ers out there, but maybe I can make my life a little more interest'n. I don't need to slow down....damn, if I slowed down any more I would be go'n backards.

Ok, got things to do. Projects to work on, ride that "billy bike"...sweep the floor, wash them dishes....git off my ass. 


  1. Sounds like all good news on the medical front, except maybe for the shrinking!

    My mouth has been ready for a good steak for a good while now. Guess I need to follow your lead and go get me one!

    Don't work too hard, my friend!

  2. Gently riding the bike is the best exercise we can do with worn joints. Do a couple of laps of the park three or four times a day until your thighs get back in shape for riding. Then we start talking miles. Have fun.

  3. Glad you got a good bill of health. How much does a bill like that cost you. I need to buy me one of those...

    1. Don't cost me nuttin "cause I come prepared. With Medicare and supplemental insurance, I'm fly'n high on the hog. Of course I have to pay a little on my meds....something like bout $700 a year.

  4. Glad to hear you are a heathly specimen but Billy Bob, don't be tellin people ya got "shrinkage"!

  5. It feels good to get a great medical check up. Happy for you.

  6. Congratulations on your clean bill of health. Glad the doctor got on to you for "conserving medications" leave that to us that have no health insurance!

    I actually looked at the price of T-Bone yesterday that I went to HEB...something rare because I don't know how to grill...don't recall the actual price but it was on the high side.

    "ride that "billy bike"...sweep the floor, wash them dishes"...now you really don't think we actually believe your going to do that, do you?
