Freddy, It was nice to see in yesterday's coffee post that Marty is out and about enjoying the things that makes her happy.
You are both in my daily thoughts and prayers. Keep the updates coming! Hugs to Marty! :bighug: :bighug:

Alright.... everybody off the bus! Go to the latrine & come back aboard when your bladder is ready for a two hour ride. Gassed up Smitty? We're headed north! Here's a couple of photos for those that haven't seen our little get away. One of the cabin & one of across the pond. Ahhhhh, the most peaceful and most beautiful place on Earth. Once you get there it takes four miles of dirt roads....this time of year ice & mud, but the bus can make it. "Hotdog hill" might be an issue, but we can all get out & push. We are hoping to spend a night. Not too sure if it's tonight, tomorrow night, or even the next night, but once Marty feels up to it and the weather allows....we are out of here!

Marty's been doing OK, although has developed a pain that strikes hard now & then.... that "hot spot" on a rib that the PET scan showed throws a fist of pain every now & then. Some meds & she's OK in a half hour or so. Oddly...and thankfully....her cough isn't as bad as it was. Who knows what's going on, but we'll take it as it comes. We are not going to spend 6 grand every two weeks for a PET scan just to see how this ugly thing is growing, or shrinking. We're just taking it day by day & loving the good ones.

A little goat was born last week.... twins actually.... one was tiny & weak so it spent it's first 5 or 6 days in the house being bottle fed. It went home with Carla each night. Usually Marty feeds the weak ones every 3 hours, but I said no.... it's Carla's turn. They do belong to her after all. That "Mary had a little lamb" thing sure is true.... this little goat will follow anywhere you want to go....it's comical!

Awwww, crap... had to postpone the trip to camp. This hand infection is the reason. I don't know if it's the sntibiotics or the other pills, but I'm so darn wobbly & tired I don't dare go up north. I won't be driving, but, I can't go unless I can handle any emergencies & there's no way I'll be fixing flat tires, driving if need be & all that. So.... we'll stay home & watch the Masters. Damn hand! I missed the cut. ;)

Well... we didn't make it to camp but today was so darn nice we decided to camp at home. We got some fresh hamburg, made up some big ol' patties & cooked 'em out on the outdoor grill. Yummy fried onions & toasted buns made for some good eats. After lunch we had a couple games of "dice"..... a game that we traditionally only play at north camp. It was sooooo nice today! The temp made it to exactly 70 & a gentle breeze kept the no bugs away. That is....if there were any bugs, it would have. Marty had a very nice day. I hope she has enough energy left for tomorrow.... a three way birthday get together at a local steak house, then all are coming here for cake & ice cream. Stop by if you can!

Glad you had a nice day for a cookout. Hope you were able to enjoy your steak dinner and birthday cake today.
How's the hand doing? Hope the swelling is easing up and you are recovering from whatever caused it.
