A road to snowhere

As posted last Friday, we left Fort McDowell ( Eagle View RV Resort  — Warning: they no longer accept USPS deliveries ) and decided to make the drive to Ruidoso, NM a 2 day affair.  The thinking for this was that the weather peeps were calling for rain / snow on Saturday in Ruidoso, so I wanted to be highly functional upon arriving ( 4 hrs x 2 days and early arrival, vs 8 hr and late evening arrival ).

We didn’t really anticipate much as the forecast was for less than an inch accumulation, and it had been over 60 F the day before.  OH BOY, were we in for a SURPRISE. (more…)

Flexor tenosynovitis – a name only a hand surgeon could love

We have made it to the DFW area.. but not without one BIG – small incident.

On Saturday, as we were driving through El Paso, TX… Dexter (our 9yo Corgi boy) became distressed.  We believe he got one of his nails hung in something, but we’re not quite sure.  He was yelping in pain, so.. like any caring person would do, Lehnanne reached in to help free him from his bindings.  Unfortunately, Dexter didn’t realize it was her, and associated her touch with the trigger of his pain, and Lehnanne got bit.  Dexter is a good boy… as soon as he recognized it was his mom that he had, he released and allowed her to free him of his painful predicament.

The damage, however… was done. (more…)
