This, That, and Sound Advise

It has been slow and quite around here, and Ken has been putting in model time, tweaking the blue boy with sturdier wheels and carriage, repairing the speedometer cable on his bike, and finding a bit of Miller time with the neighbours.

I have been puttering too, with laundry, honey runs, and general domestics as well as a bit of crocheting.

We will be going to town tomorrow for supplies, and visiting. We are expecting another storm by the end of the weekend, and then we will likely do a bit of cleaning of the outer rig and truck as they are now bespeckled with the last storm's contribution.

One unfortunate event of today brings a very important angle to traveling outside your native country - Medical insurance.

One of our neighbours, and a new dear friend had a mishap of grave significance today, and it occurred for the most innocuous of tasks.

She and I were chatting in front of her rig when the phone rang inside. She hurried off to answer it and tripped over one of the awning spikes and fell. As she went down, she ripped a gouge in her lower leg that had to be at least a foot to a foot and a half long, and moderately deep. (editor note: The report back says it was only 7")

She of course was rushed to a medical centre, and that was around 2:30 this afternoon. I didn't see them back when I last checked just before dark around 6.

I don't know if they had extended medical, but I am pretty sure they did. If not, it is not going to be a pretty bill.

Please. If you travel, take the precaution to invest in your health. It is penny wise and pound foolish to omit that expense.

I am calling it a day now, so I bid you
