Thank you CCc for the well wishes, I am getting there, or rather I am home and getting better.

I sure missed seeing the water, hills and hollars for 5 months and 18 days. Things are more better. lol

Yes, that is exactly what my husband has always said -- looking at the percentage of time as compared to age.

Always made a lot of sense to me!

Sorry to hear your traveling is now limited. There is so much to see. Hope your wife gets so you can resume some day trips.

My wife passed away 6 years ago and my first genealogy trip was to Mena, Ark. The trip back up hiway 71 in the fall with the leaves turning was breathtaking. Well worth the drive. IMHO
Thank you. My wife just had a partial amputation on her left foot and once everything has healed she should be able to have much needed lumbar neurosurgery. Ideally, we can then continue our explorations of the Ozarks. We've been to and through much of it but by no means all. That's our ultimate goal.

Hope all is well with you now and gets better. How can it not here on and around the lake?

Best wishes to your wife, Curmudg. That can't be too pleasant for her to be going through and not much of a fun time for you either. But all will be well.

Many of us "regulars" in the Retirement Forum also read and post in other City-Data forums from time to time. I know I do, and I encounter some of you "out there". Since childhood I have been interested in and curious about the unusual, the strange, and the bizarre. Therefore, once in a while I read the Mental Health sub-forum of the Health Forum - not every thread of course, but threads whose titles pique my interest.

Does anyone else do that too? Wow! I have certainly found the unusual, the strange, and the bizarre! But that reading is not for the faint of heart. The extreme suffering recounted there, the hopelessness, the depression, the pure misery, are enough to make a person want to sit down and cry.

Those of us with a zest for life and who derive interest and pleasure and gratification from it, while we may have problems and even serious problems, should count our lucky stars.

I read ''Unexplained Mysteries and Paranormal'' because there is so much that we don't understand. I'm convinced of the truth of alien landings primarily because of the extraordinary steps that the government has taken to suppress the information. The Roswell newspaper reported an alien crash in 1948 and the Army Air Corps unofficially confirmed it. Then it suddenly became a weather balloon.
