Of course, I have no idea which direction life is going to take me or what is going to happen; but am working on a few short term projects. One is to take Jim over to see his brother Ken in Phoenix and I hope we can accomplish that in February or March. Another project would be to see his sister-in-law in the San Antonio TX area. For this trip, I would like to take Eggie, my little trailer. First he will need some modifications done so we both can sleep in the trailer; and, then some maintenance work. Son has expressed interest in tagging along with us.

And poor Big Red pickup had split a hose - an essential hose. It is the high pressure power steering hose. I truly believe my angels were looking over me on that one as it was not discovered until I got home on my last doctor trip right after the last radiation treatment. Fortunately, I do not have to make another out-of-town trip until 1/28. It would have been a bummer if something had happened on a treatment trip to Las Cruces. I had them drill out 2 sheared bolts that were barely holding the front skid plate in place too and put new bolts in. Wow, that power steering hose is not an inexpensive little item.
I just had to put some of these "snow" pictures in to remind me that we do get snow here - once in awhile. Las Cruces and El Paso have more snowfalls then we do and they are just 70 miles southward. This year our "annual" snowfall was on December 26th.
