Talking Things Have Been Going Fairly Well Lately. . .

It has been 3 months since my last radiation treatment and I'm doing very well at this time. I will be going back to see the doctors on the 24th of June. But right now today is a sad day! My trusty metal detecting truck has been sold! But I now have something else in its place! I have a 2010 Ford Escape XLT with only about 82,000 plus miles on it! It is a dark metallic blue -- has the sparkles in the paint. (I tried to upload a picture but apparently it is too big I need to resize it and try again! Hopefully you will get to see a picture of it!)

Congrats on the new vehicle. You must have liked that old truck a lot. Well, those miles take their toll but now you have something more dependable and it looks great. Hope you take it on lots of metal detecting excursions. Continued best wishes, God Bless!

I'm glad to read your doing well and even got a nice vehicle upgrade, it looks great!

Congrats, I bet the XLT has a smoother ride, besides being flashy with the sparkle paint, than the truck. I see your XLT has door keypads, and those have saved our bacon out on long trips from having to call a locksmith on our car a time or two.

I looked through some of your previous posts, and I was glad to see you did get to bang a gong too. Sadly I know what that means from other family members that went through it as well. I wish you a full and speedy recovery, and hopefully your be able to get back out there discovering more finds soon!
