   Had the hopefully last surgery on my mouth yesterday. It is still sore and makes eating a challenge. I think the stitches bother me more that anything else. Dr. created quite a hole in there. I have to irrigate it twice daily for up to the next year.
   Weather here has turned nice, hope it stays that way. days have been in the 60's and nights low 30's. Lots of sunshine which certainly has improved peoples attitudes.
   We will be leaving here between the 8th and the 15th, not sure just when yet, but it will make a difference on our route.
   OK this update should hold off all my fans for a few days, God Bless and take care.

A short note: one more surgery on my mouth before we head back to Montana. March 18th and I will have a rubber tube inserted where they removed my wisdom tooth. I will have to irrigate it 2 times a day for the next year. This just sounds like a lovely thing to do, but the other option was a $20.000.00 surgery that my insurance will not pay for. So we will go the $500.00 route.
The reason for this is the type of cyst that they removed along with the tooth. It is not a cancer, but will keep coming back if I don't do this with the eventual loss of my jaw bone.
OK on to something of a nicer subject, the weather has warmed up some, more normal for here. Of course with that also the rain has returned. It has been very wet.
On another subject, I am working more hours. The other workampers left early for a job in Utah.
Until next time, God Bless and take care.

 My mouth is healing slowly/ I am still not able to wear my lower dentures. Hoping a few more days will allow me to do some serious chewing again.
 The weather has been fairly nice and more normal for this time of year. Sun is out and we are supposed to get into the 60's this weekend.
 Time here is getting short, we are looking forward to returning to Missoula once again. About 6 weeks and we will be on the road again.
 Till next time god bless and take care.

Well here we are in Febuary already. January seen the completion of my new choppers(dentures). They fit well and I am very happy with them. Now the bad news, I had a wisdom tooth that had a cyst wrapped around it that had to come out. This mission was accomplished last Tuesday by a very capable and personable dental surgeon. My mouth is still sore and jaw is still swollen but it is getting better. I a also happy to say I think this has been the problem with me losing my voice. At least it sure is better, guess time will tell for sure.
Weather here has been more back to normal highs in the 50's and lows in the 40's. We have had some much needed rain this last week with more in forecast.
We have about 7 weeks left here in Oregon the back to Montana for the summer. Not sure the route we will take yet, but will let you all know.
Hope this finds you all well. God bless and take care until next time.
