I'm here and still in the pool every day. It looks like the remodel project has taken a life of its own. Cabinets for the two other bathrooms should be in tomorrow, then they can measure for the counter tops. After that, some final painting and widening one more door. I'm hoping everything will be complete by the end of August. The back splash for the guest bath is back ordered so that pushes it back a month.

My wheelchair came and it works great. I've not used it yet but it is now ready for the van and, after all the remodeling is done, I'll get the locks installed. For now, I just have tie downs. I'm still driving the RAV4 around.

Another week gone by and another month bites the dust. Everything moves forward regardless if we desire it or not.

HAPPY CANADA DAY to our friends from the Great White North ! ! !

Still here, had a major dip in function but managing. So I cheered myself up by sponsoring one of Tillies Koalas.

Still here--waiting for delivery of the bed that will allow us to begin sleeping in our newly remodeled downstairs bedroom. In a couple of days will head east to visit my sister, other kin and friends in Newport News. VA, our first long trip in our wheelchair van. Good thoughts toward all.

Reporting in from Vail after numerous weeks of missing in action.

I am still recovering from the trip to Yellowstone, but seem to be sleeping less now and my stamina seems to be a bit better.

I am really glad to be here with the beautiful weather we have been having.

Another week and I was wondering if I still call it "Hump Day" since I am no longer working. . I suppose everyday could be hump day now. Getting closer to getting everything sorted for the remodel. Picking out the tile is the last step and it is proving to be the hardest.

It is a beautiful July day in Vail. We have had wonderful weather and I have been able to get out for some great wheelchair rides.

After church on Sunday, I took Gondola 1 up the mountain and then road my wheelchair across to the top to the Lionshead gondola. I then rode the Lionshead gondola down.

While at the top of the mountain, I noticed a smoke plume in the distance (about 20 miles away). A forest fire was reported as starting at 1:00 that day. It is now over 300 acres and the smoke from that fire blew into Vail yesterday. The smoke caused me a bit of distress due to my respiratory issues. I am sure hoping the winds shift today.

Here in sunny Florida. Last night I went up to the rooftop deck and watched the fireworks over the ocean and inter coastal river. It was beautiful.

Made it to Newport News in our van--using the PWC mainly as a place to sit as we switched drivers. Wonderful to visit family and friends, but tiring as well. Typical summer weather in Virginia--hot and humid. Eating as much sea food as possible.
