Glad to hear from you Richard even if the news was not as good as we would like. We continue to pray for your recovery. We are taking both motorhomes next weekend and camping with our son's family. He's taking the little one.

Had to work on our refrigerator in the Phaeton. It's trying so hard to give up the ghost but we aren't ready to part with it. The seals around the doors have been leaking for years and that causes moisture buildup in the box. We have added tape, etc., to stop the air infiltration, but it has gotten worse. Norcold does not sell the seals. You have to buy the doors and the cost is very close to a new refrigerator. While we had it off, I totally cleaned it up, we tested to see where air could intrude and added some more weatherstripping to try and help. We shall see. It was easy to stay on top of it when we lived in it, but this summer we have been flying back to Indiana to bring more of our household stuff back, so we've shut it off. They just work so much better if they are never shut off.

We have made 4 trips back to Indiana from Florida since March. The first trip was a week when Mom was in the hospital. The next three were to bring stuff to our new home from storage. WE have completed all that and we now have everything here. Surprisingly, I only have about 8 boxes still to unpack. They are all our pictures, framed and unframed. Most I have already scanned in and will be pitching. Some framed ones will go up on the walls.

I just can't believe we did all that by the middle of July. WE flew twice and we have been back 2 1/2 weeks, so we made it without getting the virus. Yay! We got to see Mom each trip, socially distancing of course. She doesn't want people visiting because at 95 she wants to stay cautious. Good for her.

Take care fellow FOOF's.

Richard glad yo made it home safely. Sorry that you received a bad report about your health.
Even though you are not able to drive does not mean you can not travel. If Sue is willing to drive let her. If not the truck and 5er then a class C like Sgt. Joe said or another Motor home.


Dale you guys have really been busy and brave. This virus really has us thinking about everything we do. We don't do much except go to grocery store.

Just found out my sister n law has Brain Cancer. She had lung cancer and had a lung removed January 2019. They said they got it all. She was getting scans ever 3 months. Don't know how they missed the Brain.

She fell a couple of times a week ago. They thought she had a stroke. After the MRI they saw 3 tumors on her brain. One is pushing on her nerves that makes her arm and leg go numb.
Wednesday they are going to try and shrink them with a gamma knife.
Please send prayers her way.
Thank you.

Toolguy, my husband had lung cancer in 2012. They did chemo and radiation to the chest then. A couple months later, radiation to the brain, as the first places it spreads is usually brain and liver. He is cancer free 7+ years later. Feel free to contact me if you want any more information.

Dan, sorry about your SIL. Boy have they made progress since the middle 80s. My dad had lung cancer and with the best therapy at the time he lasted about 8 months. Had metastasis just about everywhere when he eventually died.
