Leased a Propane Tank

Peculiar MO (Brilliant sunshine and milder, High 52 Low 24)

Due to Bob's surgery he will not be able to lift our 30 gallon propane tanks and with Jo's back she would not be able either so we leased a 100 gallon propane tank.

It is full now and hooked up, all we have to do is monitor the gauge and when it gets close to 20% full the propane company will come and fill it back up. We are glad we got it done before Bob's surgery which was on Wednesday, October 17th.

While recovering we have had some interesting visitors to our backyard bird feeders. We think this is a downey woodpecker (waiting on Judy to confirm :-)

On a side note somewhat medically related, we got our insurance rates for next year and we thought rates would be going down but instead it went up 39%.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo

Bob is Home From Surgery

After a successful aortic valve replacement Bob is now back living in the Carriage Cameo for his recuperation. He had a congenital heart defect of a two flap  (bi-cuspid) Aorta valve instead of three (tri-cuspid). Eventually people with this condition require heart valve replacement surgery. Bob chose a tissue valve instead of an artificial one. He describes the surgery and recovery as being hit by a Ford F-350 and then the Carriage Cameo its towing and then being backed over :-)

With all this going on we are way behind in our email and blogging, both reading and publishing. We especially want to live vicariously through the lives of the snowbirds and Winter Texans since we will be spending the winter in the Kansas City area.

With walking, rehab, napping, etc it may take us time to catch up.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
