Melting ice......

7:50 am - Saturday - March 2nd - Wittmann, AZ - 54º F, 77% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the east by northeast......cloudy today with a forecast high of 70º F.

I only took Tylenol one time Friday, and while I was uncomfortable most of the afternoon I made it, and through the night to boot.  I need to get used to how it feels without pain killers, otherwise every time they wear off I think something is going wrong, like maybe an infection.  You see where my mind goes, right?  TLE assures me all is well, and that the wound is looking much better, and the swelling is diminishing.

While it was quite cloudy most of the day it got quite warm by mid afternoon, and to counteract the warmth I had most of the windows open in the coach.....such an unusual circumstance for us if you think back over the last few months.  Since we arrived in Campbellsville (Amazon) back in mid October of 2018 we have rarely had more than one window open for brief periods of time.  Even when we first arrived here in Wittmann it was still too cold to open windows, and our heaters were running most of the day.

I spent most of the day inside once again just relaxing.  I did go outside a few times for a few minutes at a time, but I tended to be a slug most of the time.  I even spent a few minutes in the Newell Barn watching Tom polish the ALCOA aluminum wheels on one of his Newell coaches, but refrained from anything resembling work.

Tom and Darlene's 4th annual BBQ is Saturday, so TLE spent most of the day assisting Darlene in the preparation of the food, including applying the dry rub to the pork butt, smoking the pork butt, and then putting it in the oven to cook overnight......the pork butt will be the star of the BBQ.  They are expecting over 160 people I think so it will be quite a fandango!

I wish I had more to share, but that is the complete extent of day 5 of my recuperation.  It feels a lot like watching ice melt, or paint dry, but the improvement at the end of each day is discernible, and that is all that counts.

Thanks for stopping by!
