Yesterday it was time to have Ole Red serviced (oil change) so we took her to our local Dodge dealer to have it done. Usually I do my own oil changes, however we were give 3 free oil changes by the dealers management for a less than stellar experience we had with them. Other wise they have actually been really good to deal with. Anyway while we were waiting, we noticed the parts department had a table with some clearance items on it. There just so happened to be a chrome wind deflector that just happened to fit our truck on it, and it of course caught Sheryl's eye. She asked how much they wanted for it and the girl came back with $100.00, I (being the tightwad I am) balked at that number as we really don't need it. Sheryl said, well, I'll give you $50.00 if really want to get rid of it........the girl thought for a moment, then said sold! So we are now the proud owners of a new factory wind deflector for well under the retail price, and heck they even installed it for free! Got to love my little wheeler and dealer.
We have also decided that our time here at Holloman is up, we have just a couple more medical appointments to go, but they are in El Paso, TX. So we'll be pulling up our Jacks and heading for El Paso and the Ft Bliss RV Park on Saturday. It's been pretty nice here at Holloman, but the change in scenery will do us both good. We are hoping to only be in El Paso for 3 weeks or less, depending on how things go, then we'll be heading out again on our fulltime adventure.
Were looking forward to the move and getting on the road again. We'll see you back here in a couple of days as we depart for West Texas. Take Care!!!

It's been a bit since we posted, but we were handed a dose of reality last week. Sheryl had quite the scare last week (won't go into details) other than she spent 7 days in the hospital. After all was said and done (and several tests) we are happy to report she is doing well and all tests we negative. With that being said, and with inspiration from a fellow blogger, we take another look at some of life's simple pleasures. Some you do every day and don't give a second thought. Others you may notice but may not take the time to apprecate. But when the thought of losing a loved one/best friend/soul mate hits you square in the face, you take the time. So tomorrow as you get on with being busy, just stop for a moment and remember...........
The feeling you get walking hand in hand with that special person
That long hot shower
The way the day smells after a spring rain
A beautiful sunset
The scent of that rose bush as you pass by
Your first cup of coffee
Waking up and seeing how beautiful and peaceful your partner looks as they sleep
The deep down feeling of being in love
We could go on and on, but you get the idea. You hear it all the time, stop and smell the roses, but how often do you do it. Take the time and reward yourself, life is too short not to.
That was it, take Care and remember to Love Your Life as we do ours........more and more every day.

We have been here in Southern New Mexico/West Texas for 5 months now and we both really miss travelling. So, I started looking at some photos of our past travels, and thought I share a few you. These are some of the odd roadside sights we've run across. You know, the kind while driving down the road you see something that causes you to do a double take and you just have to stop and take a look.
Cedar Key, Florida, you don't often see a pink Edsel sitting on the side of the road.
Those are some of our favorites, We are sure we'll see plenty more on out travels.
Not much else is happening here, just day to day life, while waiting for doctors appointments. We are really wanting to get back on the road and Sheryl is ready NOW!!! But I keep telling her, we are not going to sacrifice your health to leave a little bit early. We'll be out there soon again and it's getting closer every day.
Enjoy the photos and see you next time.
