Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 60 Mostly Cloudy with Mist High 72) 

We had quite a week, or should I say doctor wise Bob had quite a week. Bob had his Radioactive Iodine Uptake Test starting bright and early Monday morning swallowing an iodine pill. Then there was a scan in the afternoon and the next morning. The results indicated that a biopsy was needed so that was done on Wednesday. Results will be available next week.

Bob also had his initial consultation with his Gastroenterologist and was scheduled for a colonoscopy also this week. Bob is so looking forward to this 😏

We did see a couple of uplifting movies. First we saw 'Same Kind of Different as Me' which tells the true story of the unlikely friendship between a rich art dealer in Dallas Texas (Ronnie Hall - played by Greg Kinnear) and a homeless man (Denver - played by Djimon Hounsou). 

This is a movie mostly devoid of violence and foul language that seems to be the norm these days. Prompted by his wife (Debbie Hall - played by Renee Zellweger) Ronnie starts volunteering at a homeless mission where he meets Denver. Since it is a true story there are the blemishes of normal life like marital infidelity and racial tensions but they don't dominate the movie like other ones we have seen. Besides the great acting what makes this movie great and one we highly recommend is that it is a true story. Be sure and stay for the credits as we get to see film clips of the real Ronnie and Denver.

The other movie we saw was 'Let There be Light'.

'Let There be Light' is a faith-based film and is truly a family affair for Kevin Sorbo who stars in and directs the film. His wife, Sam Sorbo, was co-writer on the screenplay as well as a producer and plays Kevin Sorbo's character's ex-wife. Their sons also had roles in the film.

Kevin plays a well known atheist who has a near death experience and changes his mind. The movie deals with his path from atheist to believer. This is truly a faith-based movie so the secular Lame Stream Media is going to hate on this movie. If only to give them a single digit salute you should see this movie. 

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Gee Bob. How much fun can you stand. However I will be joining you in the colonoscopy fun. See the gastroenterologist this week to get it scheduled. Oh such joy.

  2. Now Bob...who doesn't look forward to a colonoscopy? Surely you aren't afraid of that little long, flexible, tubular instrument are you?
    All kidding aside. We wish you the best and praying for great results from all the tests.
