Please be patient

As most of you know by now, Gene Teggatz passed away unexpectedly on Friday, July 6th, from a massive stroke.

Sandy, his beloved wife of 51 years, is hoping to continue this blog eventually, but she's a bit overwhelmed at the moment as she learns all the ins-and-outs of the mechanical side of the RV.  As her daughter said the other day, "If the key to keeping the brain from atrophying is to continue to learn new things, Mom will be in good shape for years to come."

Stop back here in the future to see insights into the world from Sandy's perspective.

  1. Thanks so much for letting us know how things are going. We all wish Sandy the best. I know it is a big change but there are a lot of us out here who will be glad to lend assistance. Please let Sandy know that we are thinking of her. We are just "youngsters" having been married 43 years but we can understand what she is going through.

  2. Thanks, Doug and Sheila, for your comments. I've received lots of help already -- and I'm sure that I will be seeking out more help in the future.

  6. Sandy, we are so sorry to hear about Gene. We have been reading about your adventures on your blog for the past two years. You may not remember us, but Sharon and I had the good fortune to meet you and Gene at the Dinner Island Ranch campground near Immokalee, Florida in January 2012. We were the couple with the small white Casita trailer. We very much enjoyed your good company and conversation for the two nights we spent there.

    Sharon and I wish you the very best as you continue on your journey through life.

  7. Today is the Friday after Thanksgiving. I am missing Uncle Gene's post-holiday analysis of the seating arrangement for the RV potluck.

  8. Thanks, Judy, for your comment. Lavonne, my neighbor, and I participated in the Thanksgiving dinner at our church in Port Charlotte. Gene would have been pleased with the table arrangement they used -- round tables with eight people at each table, a good size for conversation. He would have also been impressed with the table settings -- fabric tablecloth, nice dishes and flatware, and attractive centerpiece. However, it was certainly different since Gene wasn't by my side.

  9. Sandy:

    It looks like you must be in Florida. There are a lot of us that would like to know how you are and what you are doing. Are you in your motorhome? In a park model? We certainly would like an update.
