And the next 56 Groundhog Days . . .

A 2002 38’ Allegro Bus!   We no longer feel like we are living in a tuna can and can actually pass each other without one of us having to step outside.  Aside from the new digs I have been working like crazy on physical therapy for my rotator cuff surgery and the doc says that I am at the 3-month level of recovery after only 3 weeks.   Doing the exercises is not very enjoyable as I have to stretch stuff to the point of pain if I expect any improvement in my range of motion and then the pain hangs on for hours after I’m done until it is time to do the entire process all over again.  Yuk!!!   We’ll attempt to get another update out before Christmas but I just had to show off our new home.   Here’s the kitchen . . .

Howdy folks!   Well, here we are well into December and ever closer to the two most important dates of the year: Christmas and my birthday!!   Actually, after a lot of begging and pleading, not to mention the crying and nagging, I finally convinced my bride that a new home was in order.   And so, for my birthday . . .

And 123 yet-to-be-named holidays . . .

And Christmas . . .

‘Til next time . . . comfortable hugs all around!  Chuck and Kalyn
