I love the work it is beautiful. You said you put the green bar in mineral spirits, how do you manage to do that. I sure wish I could send mine for a visit.

Probably glad he is not here

When Bruce got here to load up we had to take care of a Moccasin in the way. It is always something.

So it seems he broke out of rehab on schedule (from what he told me a couple of weeks ago) so that's a sign he's healing well, I take it. I'm sure he's ready to be home for a change!

Reganzo - You think YOU are a bit moved by the kindness of this community!! Only the kindest most giving supportive folks I'd ever want to know. Melody Ranch & sweet wife Pati - there just are NOT enough words in my vocabulary. Then there is Bwoodtex, who flew up to the area on Saturday & drove me, my much loved dog Buddy & trailer home today. What a wonderful sight ~ swinging thru my front gate & onto my lovely Texas home base. I've been truly blessed with wonderful friends!!

He's counting the days until he can 1) go home and 2) travel with that shiny trailer.
David - So good to see you & get caught up on what was happening in the world outside my hospital windows!! I truly appreciate you dropping by. Airstreamer's are simply THE BEST!!

Pie & Jim - Bruce & I rolled thru my front gate around 6 pm today!! Such a beautiful sight. We (Bruce) unpacked the truck, got the Cruiser all set up in her shed, removed the bathroom door & shower glass doors & put the shower stool in for me, then blasted off for home & Roseann. Great folks. Great Airstreamer's. Even better friends. Will see my ortho doc in Austin sometime soon, to set the path forward toward full healing. Don't know yet if I'll be using the right leg enough to take the Cruiser to the Vintage Rally in early October. I sure hope so. If I could just get myself up into her & just live there for a month or so, I know I'd heal up better & faster !!

I believe that the Big Guy upstairs works through the kindness of strangers to give us mortals the help we need and truly deserve. I am glad that you made it home and that your recovery and rehabilitation continues smoothly and that your able to hit the road and enjoy your Airstream.

Regards,

Reganzo

Jim So glad that you and Buddy are home. I have been checking every day for updates on you. Your silver baby is so beautiful. I know you are so ready to go somewhere in her. I hope to see you again soon. Kay
