It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

We Shared Again, Still Looking For A Way and Delicious Meal.

Our Location today is La Posa South L.T.V.A., Quartzsite, Arizona, U.S.A.

Still fighting a Severe Nasal Congestion Kathy went to bed last night using her own CPAP Mask. She managed to get some sleep before having difficulty to breath while laying down. We’ve both learned from past experience that if that happens we try sitting up for a while. She covered herself in her recliner just until she could breath better. She said her eyes just blinked and her watch jumped ahead by nearly Three Hours before she headed back to bed.

Kathy and I have a habit of sharing things and that’s not always a good thing. When I got up before 8:00 this morning I could barely breathe from the one nostril and I was getting a scratchy throat. Getting everything ready for breakfast I still had time to get some of my morning reading completed before Kathy got up. She said she had slept fairly soundly but from past experience without the CPAP Machines to help us breathe through the entire night we are still dragging for the rest of the day because our bodies were not properly recharged.

It seems that we have been reading Blog after Blog from other RVers catching the same Breathing Issue. In the southwest states it is referred to as the Crud. I know very well how difficult it is to breathe when you are congested having suffered with a Deviated Septum for over Thirty-Five Years and finally having it surgically corrected Twenty-Five Years ago.

After catching up on our reading Kathy started putting together a wonderful Roast that she simply simmered in a pot on the stove. As soon as I’d completed my inside chores I set about to complete the routing of our Propane Line for our Blue Flame Heater. It was commented that I should have simply had the line run at RV Lifestyles. We had inquired the cost alone was more then double the cost of the Heater and they would not have mounted it where we wanted. Having done this type of work on a much larger scale I saw no need to do so besides other things we have had done to our RVs in the past I always had to redo.

When I looked outside I noticed someone walking her two adorable pups towards our door. It was Nan Talley who we followed for years on the blog Trippin With TheTalleys. We had net her briefly last year but had a chance to spend more time visiting with John. As they were getting ready to go Fulltime years ago John was stricken with a Severe Pulmonary Infection that required nearly a year of hospitalization. This past weekend Nan had to bring John to the Emergency in Phoenix with another Pulmonary Problem. The worst part is the Hospitals are all restricting visitors at this time because of this Flu (Crud) outbreak, so they can only visit on the phone.

Lunch was Chicken Noodle Soup a Cheese Stick and a Fruit Cup.

Last week we ordered an Endoscope in hopes that we could see the cavity between the floor and the Fresh Water Tank. Kathy manned the Computer while I tried feeding the Camera from the top with nothing positive to report. Setting up a chair outside we repeated the process from the bottom of the trailer. Jayco installed Framing and Insulation around the Fresh Water Tank with only an inch of clearance Making it nearly impossible to run the line.

The fact that my head was pounding from the Sinus Infection I inherited only made things impossible to run the Propane Line. Kathy suggested I wait until I am feeling better. The roast she cooked on the stove turned out perfect the only problem was that whenever someone walked by on the road they would ask when was dinner time.

By the time we finished eating I had to close up outside. back inside I had to lay down before writing the Blog. Hopefully things will improve for the both of us by tomorrow. Thanks for following along, feel free to leave a comment and click on the pictures to enlarge them. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Feeling like this,
there are no


You Might Be a Redneck If

You've used a Styrofoam cooler as a crib.


  1. I sure hope Kathy and you get to feeling better soon.

  2. I guess there's one thing to be said about being single ... I don't pass the crud on to someone else. It's inevitable, living in the same small space. Hope you are both feeling on the mend real soon!!!

  3. Just be careful that it isn't valley fever.

  4. Hope you are feeling better soon. Bill and I are done sharing and kissing this cold goodbye!

  5. We hope you both feel better soon!

  6. I hope you both feel better soon! During our one winter in Phoenix, we found that we had to run a humidifier at night to keep us both from drying out while we slept. Tom also had a deviated septum years ago, and he seems to be affected the most.

  7. Hope you both are on the road to recovery. Jim and I shared and are now recovered.

  8. Sorry to read that now you both have the crud. Someone said they had it and bought musinex D (sp) and she is feeling so much better after just one day.
