My Day of Awakening

July 6, 2015 is a day I will never forget, not because anything happy and exciting happened, but because it was the day I suffered the most horrendous physical pain I have ever felt in my life.  I was on my way to the bathroom when suddenly it felt like my head exploded!  I remember grabbing my head and falling to the floor.  I have brief memories of a couple of times that day; one being as the EMT’s took me down the steps, another later as I was being transferred from the first hospital to another via Life Flight.

After that, I remember a few times of feeling like I was in a very far off place, unable to communicate.  Of course it didn’t help that I had a tube down my throat, two drain tubes in my head, and a feeding tube.  The doctor’s told my family they didn’t think I would ever be the same again.  But I fooled them all.

When I began to come around after about six weeks and they removed all the life support goodies, my Daughter started bringing me Ningxia Red every day.  On the third or fourth day, I had this amazing feeling like my body was working overtime to heal itself.

I’m not claiming that the Ningxia healed me, but I firmly believe that it gave my body the boost it needed at the time.  By the following January I felt better than I had felt in years.   I have taken it every day since, and will never give up my Ningxia Red!

Working My Mind

Now, I will admit that sometimes my brain is sorely lacking stimulation…and I’m not sure if the following was stimulation, or simply boredom.  However, I do think my results are quite interesting.


One day as I was traveling to Texas on a road similar to the one above, though considerably busier than this one, I became focused on how many RVs there were on the northbound side of the road.   Of course, at first I was just jealous, because all those people were headed for places I would like to be going.  But alas, my TT was waiting for me down in Texas, where I had left it for the majority of the winter.

There were a LOT of 18-wheelers on the road, but there were also a LOT of RVs!!!  My little pea-brain decided I should count how many RVs I saw compared to the number of semis.  I counted for a rather large number of miles, and then did it again later in the day, just to substantiate the claims I am about to make.  I came up with an average of 1 RV to every 19 semis.  Then, I thought…that’s not really a fair accounting of how many people are RVing…I need to eliminate the semis from my count.

At that point, I started counting passenger vehicles compared to RVs.  Low and behold, I actually ended up with…1 RV to every 9 cars.  That means that 10% of the population is traveling in RVs!!  How smart are they?!?  I wish there had been a way to know how many were full timers opposed to part timers.  I’ll have to work on that one!

Ya’ll have lots of fun…and be safe!!
