Low lying clouds near Santa Cruz
Just a short recap as to what 2014 has been for me. I feel blessed that I can live this dream. It’s not to say that there aren’t problems, only that I can work through them with a better attitude.
I sit here thinking about this past year and there is a lot to think about. I started 2014 working through Physical Therapy for my broken left arm. Even after exhausting the allotted 12 visits with Medicare I still had problems, but lived with it.
I finished my commitment workamping in Mesa AZ and in April drove to CA with my son’s help and got set up at JD Grant Co Park where I would be a Camp Host through October. I’ve enjoyed working at both places. Of the two of them, I think I prefer Camp Hosting.
Since my arm wasn’t getting back to normal, I checked with a specialist in San Jose, who suggested that I have additional surgery, which I did in late October. Because of the surgery, I wasn’t able to workamp for the winter. Instead, I have been paying for a site in an RV park in Santa Cruz and going to additional PT. So far the arm is getting better, even the numbness seems to be getting better. I mostly have to work on strengthening the arm, but have got most of my mobility back.
As much as I like living near Santa Cruz, there have been problems. I seem to be trying to keep warm and dry. There have been heavy rains and leaks. I have never liked having carpet in the bedroom and bathroom and have wanted to replace it with other flooring. It seems that I will do that sooner than anticipated. The bedroom window leaked and saturated the carpet. I have removed it and am now trying to dry the base floor. I certainly don’t need to have mold. The window has been fixed as well as the W/D Vent to the outside. The rubber gasket on the slide also leaks, but that will have to wait, so the slide will stay in until I can get it fixed. It is still damp in some places. Someone suggested using salt crystals that draws moisture out of the air. My son suggested that I try Damp-Rid. I have purchased a couple and put one in the bedroom and one under the Sofa/Sleeper. I will see if that helps.
I was able to make a couple of trips to Sacramento for the Holidays. Ted and I stayed with friends, Steven and Kyle. Thank you both for your hospitality.

I have had some issues with how I download, store and retrieve pictures. For some reason I’m not able to put them in folders like I have in the past. I’m sure it is some thing that I have done,so until I figure it out there won’t be too many of them.
I hope that you all have a Happy. Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
Thanks for visiting
