This drive through the Sheanadoah Valley is one of the most beautiful in the world. the valley goes on for hundreds of miles with lush greenery, pastures and fields as you travel.
This mountain has power towers, we hiked under them and they do make a loud humming noise.
Going across the Blue Ridge Mountains at FAncy Gap, VA.
We did get a scare yesterday. Our Nephew ‘Big Mark’ was rushed to the hospital with blood clots in his lungs. He had just had surgery in the last few weeks to re-attach his Achilles tendon, and his lungs collapsed just after surgery. He came out of that all right, then the blood clots. We were up to see him late this evening and decided to go ahead with the trip. He seems to be stabilized.
Yesterday our visit with Sonny he was anxious to get home, he is walking a little. Enough to get from the wheel chair to the commode. You know most of the houses built 20-40 years ago had two foot doors into the bathrooms, pretty hard to find a wheel chair that narrow. It is a pretty good job to rip out a 2 foot door and install a 30-32 inch door. The carpentry is no challenge but the threshold and floor covering are. Of course if it had been necessary I could have done that. But I think he will be all right. I am just amazed he is Alive and able to function. There were many days since we have been home I just knew he was goner.
I joked with him about the funeral wreath I bought because I thought he was dying, and the florist would not give me a refund, when he had the ill manners to get better. I said you have a lot of nerve. We got a good laugh out of it. Steve and Vickie (His children) have been put through the mill but are really doing a great job for and with him. Sometimes my buddy can be pretty demanding of his family. They have done so much for him. During this time Vickie was laid off from her job and Steve’s daughter has been very ill. It has been rough.
HOWEVER, NOW, we are heading out. We are in Edinburg,Virginia when I post this. Ahhhhhhhhh the feel of the road.
Thanks for coming by the log.
