Well, Thursday morning bright and early I have to be at the surgeons office to have reconstructive work done on my nose where the basal cell cancer was removed.  It isn't something I am looking forward to, but it has to be done, so let's get on with it.  He said it would take about an hour and then I would be good to go.

Gerry already has a trip to Costco planned for after the surgery.  The Costco is just a few miles from the surgeons office and there are a few things on the list to buy.  If this procedure isn't any worse than the last one, then I should be able to walk the aisles with her.  The articles to buy aren't very interesting so it should be a quick trip.

Then we will drive back to the cabin and pick up a couple movies to watch during the day while I lazy around.  The last procedure made me sleepy afterward and I am sure this one will also.   

I was telling Gerry that I need to follow some blogs of younger people since everyone our age is going into or coming out of the hospital or doctor visits.  It goes with the territory so you do what you have to do, but it would be nice to hear about some other activities.

At least the rains have stopped here for the last couple days and it even warmed up into the 70s today and there was a nice breeze.  We took advantage of the nice weather and continued to work on getting the motor home ready for departure in 2 1/2 weeks.  Saturday, Jack and I will apply eternabond to some of the seams on the roof of the motor home and do some other routing maintenance.  I just read on one blog where they used eternabond to help repair a slide topper on their unit.  We have a slight tear in our bedroom slide topper and I am going to apply eternabond on the part that is torn.  That should make it last a couple more years.

We rented a movie from Redbox last night and it had bad spots on it and made it difficult to watch.  I logged onto the internet and went to the website and signed into a "chat" session.  Melisa came on quickly and I explained the problem to her.  She immediately told me to return the DVD and gave me two free promo codes for future movies.  She said the DVD would be taken out of service and apologized for the problem.  I also had two promo codes that should have been valid but the machine rejected them.  Two more free promo codes were forthcoming after explaining a few more details.  I really enjoy doing business with a company that doesn't quibble over something like this and makes it right.  I kept wanting to call her Peggy but since she did such a good job I didn't have the heart to do that.   She had a very nice southern accent and was easy to understand.  Redbox has my vote for great service.

Not much else going on around here so I will sign off and hit the hay since we have to get up early for the drive down to Frederick, MD.  It's only about an hours drive so it won't be that much of a problem, but getting up and staying up at 6AM is going to be hard on me.  Yuk!


  1. Hope all goes well today with your reconstructive surgery. If you get a chance later, I'll be blogging about our trip to MO with no doctors or hospitals mentioned.

  2. When that surgery is successful and you are all healed, you'll be better able to "nose around" all the new and wonderful places you visit!

    Sorry about the pun. No, I'm really not sorry! I did it on purpose.
