Gracie hadn't been groomed since almost a month before we left Arizona, so she was in dire need of a hair cut! The breeder from whom we bought her is a groomer and she grooms the dogs she sells for $15 (costs us $30 in Quartzsite), so Gracie finally got a hair cut:

|Do you love me mommy?|
The month was taken up with doctor's appointments, both for Earl and me. In addition to seeing my doctor, I've had a whole slew of tests done and will have another one done next week. We've both been to Pearl Vision...Earl to get new lenses because his old ones were so scratched up, and me to get new frames because my old ones broke. Earl also had an eye exam while he was there, and the doctor found that he has the very beginnings of macular degeneration. So far, it hasn't affected his vision, but I did order MaxiVision (their whole body formula) that's supposed to help...we'll see.
One Sunday, Earl discovered a leak in the water line going up to the water heater. Of course, it happened on a Sunday, so it cost us an arm and a leg to get a plumber out to repair the leak!
Our oldest Verizon phone was up for the "new every two years" upgrade, so instead of a phone, I ordered the Samsung Galaxy Tab, an android tablet. I've been having fun playing with it. It should come in handy as we're traveling...I can't remember the number of times we've wanted to look something up as we're driving down the road, but can't because the computer and USB modem is in the RV. Now I'll be able to look the information up (should come in really handy to look up which station has the lowest fuel prices)...of course, we'll have to have cell service in the area, but we do for most of our traveling.
