My neighbors across the street texted me this picture of the little house yesterday...they had 8 1/2 inches of snow in their yard, and it was still coming down.

And, we are not at home having to deal with it.

My son says we got 10 1/2” of snow from the storm, it is now very cold and more snow is expected the weekend.

Going to be one of those winters.

Meanwhile, we spent a couple of chilly nights at the beautiful Inks Lake SP, then poked around the Hill Country backroads today to look around and especially to visit Luckenbach...Waylon, Willie & the boys were not there ...and are in a lovely, very friendly and dog-loving PA campground for the night.

Old homes in Texas look different than old homes in the Midwest, South, Northeast, etc., and it’s a big part of any areas charm, to me, to see the old homesteads in towns and on the backroads.

I love it.

Maggie

Sounds like you had your road safe exit opening right in the nick of time. Makes me chili just seeing it.

You are actually near the area where I grew up, Texas hill country. Fredericksburg and Kerrville are nice if you get a chance. And try smoked dried sausage... it's awesome. And you have to have Texas BBQ. Enjoy. Hope to see you in South Carolina...I don't miss shovelling snow. My sons are in Ohio shovelling! Safe travels.

Hi ladies!

I will be getting me some of that Texas BBQ before I leave, feasted on fresh tamales with chili today.

Yum. No fresh tamales in the grocer at home.

Were I home, I would have had another couple loads of wood deliverered by now, and would be hunkered down with a fire in the woodstove, waiting this out.

But, that was last year...this year, I am back on the road again.

I lifted my head early yesterday morning, to look at my phone and check the time, and was hit with an attack of room-spinning dizziness that recurred with any movement.

I had trouble standing and walking, and became nauseated.

So, I did what most 21st century men/women would do, and googled it.

No fever nor pain nor congestion nor other indications of ďillnessĒ, I diagnosed myself with a left inner ear issue, which is caused by something or other moving about in the inner workings.

Decided to stay here another day...at $17 for W/E, showers and cable, a very friendly campground on a beautiful river, it seemed the logical thing to do.

The dizziness improved slightly during the day, allowing me to rather drunkenly walk Lily several times, but if I bent over to pick something up, a new wave of world/room-spinning and nausea would hit me.

Did an exercise I found online to improve it several times before bed last night, and it is quite a bit better this morning, so we are going to move on.

Weird and disorienting, and I first feared I was having another stroke, but no vision changes, limb weakness, speech issue, etc., so I ruled that out with the help of google.

No Prompt Care anywhere near me, and my symptoms didnít seem to warrant an ambulance...I kept the door unlocked, in case I was wrong and Lily needed rescued at some point, and my phone handy with the emergency button to call 911 if needed.

Provided self care, and waited it out.

When youíre on the road, and by yourself....


Maggie

A retired friend of mine is suffering through bouts of vertigo which sound like what youíre describing. Not fun. Hope it diminishes soon for you.

Thank you, and it is much better this morning.

Tell your friend to look up ”Epley maneuver”, if that hasn’t already been suggested. Supposed to help drain whatever has shifted, causing the vertigo.

Mimi has already offered to come help me, bless her heart, but I think I am going to be okay, and will go to a Prompt Care if it doesn’t continue to improve, tho it doesn’t read as if antibiotics or anything are called for.

Good for us to save ourselves, whenever possible.

Maggie

No dizziness at this time, sinuses have drained all day and my head feels clear.

Mimi says there is some cedar here that most everyone is allergic to, which may be part of the problem.

Barely got on the road today, stopped for fuel and my ignition key snapped in half. Not quite sure how it happened, I found it in pieces and was dead in the water, at the pump, for 4 hours, when I was towed to a campground across the road.

Not easily replaced, our little keys, no locksmith in the area had the blank so it is being overnighted from Houston and I should have a key mid day tomorrow.

Yikes.

That’s three small rig mishaps already this trip, and I’ve only been gone 2 1/2 weeks.

I’m hopefully done.

Maggie

The locksmith has received my blanks, and is on his way to me.

I love people who do what they say they are going to do.


This is a really good book, Iím about halfway thru...

Fiction, but based on real events in Poland in 1941.

https://www.amazon.com/Winter-Journe.../dp/1489087672

Ordinary people, in extraordinary circumstances, most of whom were able to turn on their neighbors, butchering, raping, burning alive men, women and children, locked inside a barn.

We donít know what we would do in similar circumstances, but Iíd like to think I would stand up, speak the truth, and try to do the right thing.

The fact is, standing up to power is most often a death wish, literally or figuratively, as it was here...the powerful often act with impunity, for they know they will never be held accountable.

Thanks, Peter, tho a sense of achy/fullness in my head and slight nausea prompted me to take Tylenol and an antihistamine before I went to bed last night.

I have no appetite, either, and but for the gnawing in my stomach I simply wouldnít eat.

Weird, but better this morning, and I have to think itís that crazy, toxic cedar something down here that everyone is talking about.


We spent the night in pienjimís courtesy parking...very nice folks, who I have finally had the privilege to meet.

Tho Lily could run free on the property here, she found herself out-matched by one of their dogs, more alpha than she, causing her to scramble into Mrs. pienjimís lap yesterday while their Chloe gnawed at her hindquarters...no blood nor damage, just intimidation and dominance, but Lily then retreated to the safety of the Interstate and stayed there while we humans visited.

Weíll be heading on toward the beach today, will hopefully get to walk and have our feet in it, if not camp.

Iím hopefully done with small, untoward events.

Maggie

At the risk of vibe-ing this in the wrong direction, and with your permission to speak freely, if the nausea remains, or gets worse, you might consider having an MRI of the brain done IMO. [Experience with family members . . . ]

May the ocean air clear this up!

Thanks, Peter, I really think it is middle ear, but will remain aware.

We are at Padre Island NS, one of 10 or so A-C rigs spread out in the parking lot at Malaquite.

Works for me for a couple of nights.

This coming to you courtesy of my Weboost, turning 1x signal into 3 bars of good LTE.

Iíll take it.

Maggie,

Sorry to read of your problems, and my advice would be to get it taken care of right away (you know why). In one of my followup visits today my blood pressure was recorded as the lowest I recall ever being measured at (I had planned to talk to the Dr. about it being higher than usual). We concluded it is a combination of coming down off of my stressful week in the hospital, slight dehydration, and the second BP med they put me on while I was "incarcerated". I am directed to taper it off over the next 5 days and monitor my BP.

Please get yourself looked at and get to the bottom of this - I know you will, just providing a slight additional push.

Al
