For sun and temps in the 80's
It's time Jan got a little payback for taking such great care of me after having total hip replacement surgery on December 27th. Without her help I would have gone to a rehab facility rather than home. It sure was nice to go home. She treated my surgical wound every day until the staples were removed and the doctor was amazed how well it had healed. She waited on me hand and foot...literally. I couldn't put a sock or shoe on my right foot for over 3 weeks.

So, this little trip is a bit of a thank you to her. We have done quite a few winter trips to nice warm places for longer than this one in the past years since my retirement and we were planning a trip to Tahiti and Bora Bora with our friends the Flahertys. But, the surgeon said it was time for a new hip. Jan, being the wiser of us, decided that it would not be a good idea to make all the plans and reservations with the hip recovery going on. As it turns out Marilyn badly broke her wrist right after my surgery, so it was good that we scrapped the Tahiti plans. We've decided we will definitely make that trip next winter.

This won't be too adventurous or unique, but we'll have a great time with Dan and Marilyn. And maybe we'll get a bit of last summer's tan back.

Hi Bill-Real Snowmobiler
Believe me, I tried to put it off until late March or April, but I was limping so bad and needing pain killers to ride in December that I had to get it done. The good news is that it went so well that the surgeon cleared me to ride after 6 weeks and I've already made one trip to the U.P. last week and heading back March 3rd. Hope you're having a great season.
