It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

It was The Loop Journey. It was the Loop calamity.

The following is the blog I was about to publish just before my wrist exploded.

“It is a pleasure to wake in the morning on Dream Seeker, after I have sent a post, and read all your comments. I share your thoughts with Denny and we relish its contents.  Although some of the journey has been challenging, it is new, different and fun. I am really enjoying the adventure. For me, the Blog is a delightful connection to my family, friends and home!  The Loop has been, so far, a wonderful journey”.

The calamity is the need to temporarily leave the journey.

A broad smile appeared on the doctor’s face as I told him that I heard he was the guru of hand surgeons in this area.  I am depending on his wisdom and skill to return my wrist to its former glory, so a little suck up can’t hurt.

Thursday, May 30, with the assistance of modern science, my wrist bones will be reconnected.  A few days in a large cast, then a small cast, then physical therapy and Voila, a renewed wrist. Hope it proves to be as easy as it sounds.

We are happy to be home in Palm City for this leg of the journey.
