Greetings Earthlings! I am slowly returning to the land of the living. What ever the heck I caught last Friday has been the second worst thing I can remember catching. The pneumonia was worse, but this was a very close second.
I have not done much of anything except lay on the couch. We went for a drive Wednesday to see if we could locate an entry point for a mountain bike trail (the Honey Bee) we were interested in. It's really pretty up in Oro Valley. The mountains are just lovely.
We made a stop at the Honey Bee Canyon Park to see if the entry point might be there. After wandering around for about 15 minutes, I got tired and we abandoned the search.
We found an entry point later by the Methodist Church. Mark says we're going to have to download the mtbproject app to have a map, because nothing out there is signed, and there are many opportunities for being lost.
Thursday we broke down and went to the doctor. I got more antibiotics and some Prednisone to help with the swelling in my sinus cavities. I hate Prednisone.
Friday I was better, so we went out to Gilbert Ray for a happy hour at Mark and Bobbie's site. They have excellent real estate.
It was really nice to be out of the RV and talk to other people. It's been awhile since we've seen members of the hiking consortium.
Today was a long visit to Barnes and Noble. Jim's Nook can no longer download anything. After a couple of hours of factory re-setting and attempting to reload the library, it was clear that it's a dead electronic. So now he has a new one.
We saw this on the way out of the RV park. That is a very big truck on a narrow street, about to extract an old park model.
Today is the last day of the Prednisone the doctor prescribed Thursday, I quit. Did you know that Prednisone causes insomnia? After nine days of not sleeping due to coughing, then because I couldn't breathe, now steroids are keeping me up. Steroids! Hopefully a couple of more days and this will be over.
Other than this, I have nothing of interest to offer.
