Since we had been using Roman numerals to mark this event in the past, we thought it would be interesting to just say it in Latin: Milestone Seventy-Two.
When we posted one year ago, we predicted that we were going to do a little traveling to be present for our first great grandson’s birth; we made the trip to California, but were a few days early for the birth. We did have a nice visit with the three granddaughters, however.
It has been a good year, with several notable events: Our great grandson was born just after the trip to California, The Better Half’s beloved Mom passed away a few days before his birth in September. Snow fell in Wickenburg on New Year’s Eve, the first snow we have seen since moving here. We did several major home improvement projects including building retention walls and paving the RV drive. Our granddaughter brought our great grandson to Arizona for a visit in May. We sold our California House and thanks to DrJim, we donated our old ham radio gear so some new folks could get interested in the hobby.
The health has been very good over the past year. In October, I was in the hospital for an out-patient procedure to remove the last of the suspicious tissue from my bladder. The lab results showed benign tissue and subsequent checkups have shown no additional growth. I have another checkup next week which is a periodic thing that I hope the urologist pronounces to be at one-year intervals.
Now that the trailer is ready to go, we will likely be taking a couple of road trips in August and September. We are looking forward to another prosperous and healthy year.
