A recent reply from my wife when I asked her what she would like for dinner a few days after left hip replacement surgery.

We were on the road at 07:00 to Tyler and back home at 7 PM that night. Out- patient. 

Surgery went perfectly according to the doctor. Text book.  Used a robot to help perform the surgery. He said my wife would most likely be happier going home than spending the night at the hospital. We fought the pending ice storm rains all the way home. A two hour run. 

Neighbors were waiting with  house lights on. Husband stepped right up to helping my wife out of the car, to the walker and into the house to her chair. Like a sent protector, he stood close by making sure all went well. His wife visited with my wife. How are you feeling? What else can we do? chit chat!! "There is a breakfast casserole on the stove for the morning. Make sure you put it in the fridge." I did. 

We were home safe and sound with promises of being checked in on at morning day light. We were and a large pot of chicken stew was delivered piping hot just before dinner time.



Picked up a few containers of fresh yogurt from a local dairy to help my wife's stomach and systems deal with the pain meds she would be taking for a few weeks. She mixed three cap fulls of Mexican Vanilla in each container. Quite tasty/ High fat content as seen in the photo above.

Moved Dodge to the front yard to protect from falling iced over limbs during recent ice Texas ice storm.



Moon Rise


Near by lighting strikes inside thunder storms. 

"Incredible lightening storms all over the place last night. We went from the Great Exuma Bank into the tongue of the ocean, the depth goes from literally 20 feet down to 8000 feet over the course of a few hundred yards. With that came huge swells but unfortunately not a ton of wind so we were taking a bit of a pounding. 

We pushed pretty hard and rounded the northwest tip of New Providence island, the island that is home to Nassau located on the northeast of the island. Big storms over Nassau but we managed to avoid them.

Then the convective cells started consolidating around us but fortunately they dissipated. We had to divert 20 degrees here and there in order to stay out of their way. 

The sun is just peeking from behind the clouds now and it's getting warm. Hard to believe it was chilly as **** last night." 



Calmer evenings


50's 60's ROAD TRIP found on the Feral Irishman's blog site a few weeks ago.

I could see myself in every photo . Memories of those years growing up into my teens. I doubt there is any way to share these times other than a run of photos like this. I admit, I hang on tightly to those days. The cars, towns, stores, people, country side and the music.


Behind in posting. 

Planted onions, potatoes and a few cabbages as of today. February has not yet been nasty cold day after day as it has been in years past. But the month is not over yet either.

Thanks for stopping by.
