Richard, please call a doctor - the older you get the less your max heart rate should be, 170 would not be good even for me at 56!

My wife is diabetic as well and we keep Powerade Zero around all the time, it has electrolytes in case something were to screw up her sugar or electrolyte levels. Same idea as Pedialyte really.

Sue's blood pressure settled down and she has been fine since early this afternoon. Right now she is going to bed as I am also. Looking for a better tomorrow.

Good afternoon everyone. All is well here at camp Dixie. The sun is shining and no rain in sight and it is warm outside. Church member brought firewood yesterday so we have fire wood in case it gets cold again. I have been able to get in touch with the family of a childhood friend that I grew with. His sister lives in Sylvania, Georgia and has family on face book. He has family in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina which is just outside of Charleston, SC. I am hoping to be able to meet with his family sometime in the near future. There is a very nice campground close to Charleston named Oak Plantation. The only problem with it is there is no left turn out of the campground during heavy traffic at certain times of the day. YOu have to turn right, go around behind the campground on a back street to get to a traffic light so you can turn left to go into Charleston,

Dan and Patty and Dan and Lori have stayed there before. Anyway I am hoping we can make this trip before we sell the truck and camper. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Oak Plantation was a very nice campground.
It can get rough getting out but be patient and go the other way out.

Glad Sue is doing better.

We lost Murphy a week ago today. This time last week, she was still alive. I went home around noon time to check on her and she was really panting and having trouble breathing. The last time I saw her on our dog room camera was a little after 1:30pm. She got up and got a drink of water and then laid down out of site of the camera. When Donna got home at 4:30, she was gone.

I am really having a hard time with her death. Donna and I don't have any children and she was like a daughter to me. I know time will make things easier but right now I am really having a hard time.

August 29th 2017 we lost our doxie. He was the first one we raised from a pup together. Time may heal wounds but it's tough. My wife visits her friends and their dogs and kept busy. We agreed to get another one but it's tough to find a rescue doxie. That'd be my preference. She has also been having medical issues for the last several months.

Keep your happy memories alive, I took video of our pup with his bowl and plates.

Hopefully this is ok to post.

Good morning everyone. I am so sick. Don't know if it is a very bad cold or the flu. Anyway I am very sick. Sue had whatever this is and now I have it, I keep getting these phone calls "This is the last chance before we close your files to take advantage of our exclusive offer to purchase an extended warranty for your vehicle."

Anyway I won't rant here for this is not the place for it. Okay I hope all is well with everyone. We are having an early spring. trees have blooms on them and the some flowers are blooming. It' still very cool weather, not the typical warm spring days of the deep south. The nights are still in the 30's but no frost.

I have been reaching out to my best friends family lately. Tommy and I were the best of friends in school. He died with pancreatic cancer d few years ago. It's strange how we let so much time go by without reaching out pt each other. His children are asking questions about our childhood and the things we did growing up. His sister has told them all the stories, but I guess something has stirred them up and they want to know more about their dad and his friends. He has a daughter and a son that didn't get to spend much time with him s he married late in life and hen got busy with his career of becoming a doctor. He made quiet a name for himself ate the University of South Carolina Medical school. There are some achievement awards given out to students that achieve the highest GPA in certain subjects. Tommy told me stories about when he was stationed at Guantanamo Naval base While he was in the service. He would be stationed on patrol to guard the fort without any bullets for his rifle. Was told if he needed any report to the officer in charge and he would get them for him,

Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give he fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.
