Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 37 Warmer; Fog in the Morning High 68) 

Subtitled: We are bad bloggers

A lot has been going on in our world but how many times can you say, "since the last update we've had many appointments with doctors and tests, etc". We could have said that for this update, with a notable addition. Bob had appointments and tests that led up to his thyroid surgery. Last Tuesday Bob had a thyroidectomy, a complete removal of the thyroid. The analysis of the tissue during the surgery indicated that there may have been cancer present in the thyroid, even though the earlier biopsy was negative. We hope to find out within a few days. Jo had her share of appointments too and our cats also visited the vet a few times. A very interesting 3 weeks.

We had some great friendship during these three weeks. We had lunch a couple of times recently with Steve and Vicki who are new to fulltiming came to Kerrville after becoming Texans. They are in Austin now getting themselves established with their new doctors. More great friendship occurred with a big surprise for Jo. As we were walking into Chili's for a late lunch there was somebody waiting in overflow seating area. Jo couldn't believe it but the person waiting was her friend Wilma. Wilma and her husband Bob had taken a different route on their way to Arizona. Bob and Bob and eventually Wilma kept it a surprise for Jo. We had a fun filled few days before they headed off to Arizona.

We also had some RV work done by a mobile tech and by Bob. The mobile tech tried to figure out where we are getting water from in our outside cargo area that has our outside television. He decided to remove all the caulking on the cargo door and recaulk it. Bob added a lot of caulk to a roof area that will have to be redone later where the satellite cables come through the roof. We haven't had rain since so we are waiting to see if we have found the problems.

Bob also fixed the window that was broken, where the track attached to the window fell off. Here is the window after Bob taped it shut.

Bob cleaned the track and window and then added double sided automotive tape and clamped it to hold it together.

So far it's holding, which for some of Bob's projects is a long time :-)

We'll leave you with a photo of Sandra helping with our Christmas cards, her job was the return address labels.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Glad the surgery went well; cancer is something not to fool around with. I share your sentiment about blogging when there's not much going on. When we're not running the road, I just wait until a few things of interest come along with enough of an accumulation to warrant a post. The nice thing is that I don't notice any loss of readers when I'm doing that. Those who enjoy following you will wait patiently for the next installment. Glad you're having fun with friends; it's what makes the RV world go around. Merry Christmas!

  2. Praying for good news on the test results. I am so sick of doctors. Glad we have them but . . . I really struggle to find anything to blog about when we're sitting still. But it sure is good to hear from you.

  3. OH boy. Prayers that Bob will continues to improve and the meds he needs to take for the thyroid do the trick.
    What a wonderful surprise for Jo. Glad she never caught on.
    HAHAHA....I just love Sandra helping with the return labels. Looks like she is doing a super job. Merry Christmas!

  4. Hoping and praying everything goes OK. Be thankful for the doctors and they found the problem. I am so far behind on blogging I'M not sure I'LL ever get caught up. Merry Christmas and God bless the two of you.

  5. Merry Christmas. Best wishes for health outcomes. Wow, glad you got Sandra to help. Our kitty just makes a mess of any project we have going.
