I HOPE ..

MAKE NO MISTAKE .. I FULLY REALIZE HOW BLESSED AND HOW LUCKY AND HOW FORTUNATE I AM TO BE ABLE TO TRAVEL AS I DO. THE ENTIRE POINT OF MY WEBSITE HERE IS TO REALIZE MY DESIRE THAT .. IN SOME SMALL WAY .. ONE OF MY POSTS OR ONE OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS WILL MAKE ONE PERSON'S DAY JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER. I HOPE THAT SOMEONE WILL SEE SOMETHING HERE ON THIS WEBSITE THAT THEY WILL NOT EVER BE ABLE TO SEE OR TO DO OTHERWISE.

IF YOU HAVE HEALTH AND ADEQUATE MONEY.. WITH DISCERNMENT .. FIND THE COURAGE TO DO WHAT GOD IS CALLING YOU TO DO!

THIS TRULY IS MY DOXOLOGY .. MY PRAISE TO GOD!

MANLEY HOT SPRINGS.. ALASKA.. OCTOBER 19th

THANK YOU ALL WHO HAVE BEEN KEEPING PATTI IN YOUR PRAYERS ..

THIS PAST WEDNESDAY .. ON AN OUT-PATIENT BASIS .. PATTI HAD A LUMPOLOGY ON HER RIGHT BREAST .. SHE DID NOT HAVE ANY LUMPS BECAUSE THE MAMOGRAM CAUGHT THIS EXTREMELY EARLY IN ITS DEVELOPMENT ..

AS OF TODAY .. FRIDAY THE 19th .. ABOUT 6:30PM .. PATTI CONTINUES TO BE DOING VERY WELL .. THE SURGEON WAS VERY SATISFIED WITH THE PROCEDURE AND WE ARE 'ON' TO LEAVE ANCHORAGE FOR CHICAGO AND THEN TO DETROIT ON NOVEMBER THE 8th and 9th .. FLYING AND AMTRAKING ON THE TRAIN ..

AFTER A WEEK IN DETROIT .. WE WILL GET ON-THE-ROAD AND .. IF YOU ARE ON-OUR-ROUTE .. WE WILL CONTACT YOU ABOUT A VISIT ..

WE PLAN TO HEAD SOUTH OUT OF DETROIT ON I-75 ON MONDAY THE 19th FOR NEW ORLEANS AND A DATE TO SEE THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS PLAY THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS IN AN NFL GAME ON SUNDAY THE 25th .. THEN HOPE TO HEAD WEST TO DALLAS TO SEE THE COWBOYS PLAY THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES IN DALLAS ON SUNDAY THE 2nd OF DECEMBER .. LORD I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I WOULD BE THRILLED TO SEE THE DALLAS COWBOYS PLAY IN THEIR HOME STADIUM BUT I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO ROOT FOR THEM .. I ALWAYS ROOT FOR THE HOME TEAM .. OR SHUT UP AND KEEP SILENT .. SO I WILL BE QUIET IN THE SUPER DOME IN NEW ORLEANS SINCE I LIVED IN SAN FRANCISCO FOR SOME 33 YEARS .. BUT IN DALLAS .. I WILL ROOT FOR THE COWBOYS OVER THE EAGLES FOR SURE .. GO TONY ROMO AND THE COWBOYS .. WHODDA THUNK THIS CAPTAIN ..

THEN WHO KNOWS .. WE WILL BE 'ON-THE-ROAD AGAIN' .. JUST GETTING WITH IT .. IT WILL BE 'HEADS CAROLINA TAILS CALIFORNIA' .. WE PROBABLY WILL THEN DOUBLE BACK AND HEAD EAST FOR SOUTHERN ALABAMA AND NORTHERN FLORIDA .. JACKSONVILLE AND TAMPA AND MIAMI AND ATLANTA AND CHARLOTTE ALL HAVE NFL TEAMS LAST COUNT .. WORK OUR WAY UP THE EASTERN SEABOARD .. THEN AGAIN .. WE COULD HEAD WEST .. FLIP THAT COIN PATTI ..

MAN ALIVE AM I REVVED UP AND RARING-TO-GO .. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL BOBBA CAPS .. WE WILL TOUCH BASE WITH LOTS OF FRIENDS IN THE SOUTH WHERE I  LIVED WHEN IN PROFESSIONAL AUTO RACING ..

HANG ON PATTI ..

ALL .. GOD-WILLING .. AND ASSUMING PATTI DOES NOT HAVE ANY AFTER CARE IN MICHIGAN ..

FAIRBANKS ALASKA .. USA .. OCTOBER 4 .. 2012

One of my most important life mentors are the following words .. said slowly ..

I am only one .. but still .. I AM ONE ..

I cannot do everything .. but still .. I CAN DO SOMETHING ..

And because I cannot do everything ..

I WILL NOT REFUSE TO DO THE SOMETHING I CAN DO ..

   written by Edward Everett Hale ..

My 'writing rhythm' has been totally destroyed because .. in Manley Hot Springs .. out in the rural interior of the State of Alaska .. North and West of Fairbanks Alaska .. I simply can NOT get reliable internet access .. from time to time .. once in awhile .. I MOST DEFINITELY CAN GET INTERNET ACCESS .. to do  this I must go about two (2) miles and then my access 'comes and goes' in from two to five minute intervals .. so it becomes impossible for me to do any writing because I will constantly be 'dropped' and thus can NOT get a good rhythm for writing established ..

THEN coming into Fairbanks .. I am so  busy I simply do not have the time nor the energy to get 'on-line' and write a post as I am now doing .. AND I SEEM UNABLE TO RECOVER FROM THE DRATTED CAMERA ISSUE THAT DESCENDED UPON ME SOME MONTHS AGO .. when my little Nikon Coolpix S4100 stopped working .. and to date (no matter that Nikon serviced it and Nikon said "Now it works again" ) .. it still is not working BUT I HAVE PURCHASED TWO (2) new Nikon Coolpix cameras (one a S3300 and the other a S4300 .. which itself failed to work right out of the brand new box and had to be sent to Nikon for repair ..) .. so I am 'totally stuck' with regards to photographs being posted here ..

So here I sit able to get this far thanks to Edward Everett Hale .. (what's that Godzilla .. please read above Godzilla .. joy to Kleiner Bear .. ) ..

TOO MUCH RECENT HISTORY TO GO INTO .. right now .. this instant .. I plan today to drive back to Manley Hot Springs .. on Tuesday November the 6th .. I plan to vote in Manley Hot Springs .. then get into Fairbanks .. catch a flight to Anchorage at 5:15PM .. on Thursday November the 8th .. Patti and I plan to fly to Chicago Illinois .. then on Friday November the 9th take the Amtrak Train to Detroit Michigan and to Royal Oak Michigan a northern suburb of Detroit ..

THEN ? .. well I had planned to go back to India this December 17th 2012 .. TAKING with me Patti and my webmaster Gullible and perhaps Patti's niece .. AND ? .. things went to 'hell in a handbasket' in the world scene and that plan had to be totally scrapped .. Bobba and three female companions can NOT move quickly should we face some difficulties on the streets of India .. AND ? .. Patti has been visited with some personal .. medical .. challenges ..  read the BIG 'C' ..

So we .. Patti and I .. will go to Royal Oak .. and 'settle in' .. 'wiggle down' .. purchase cable televison .. and see what developments arise .. we very well may do some travelling .. weather permitting .. we just don't know .. there is a lot 'between these lines' I am NOT going into here .. 

When things 'shake out' we will see what we see ..

'Seattle Greg' .. who I met IN India on December 27th .. 1990 .. over twenty one years ago .. was up for a visit following the visit with my son David .. so I have been pretty busy ..

Personally I (1) want to return to India again and (2) I plan to do so .. BUT .. I have no clue as to when and IF it will happen ..

I hit 'control' by accident .. totally lost this entire writing .. BUT .. THANKS TO GOOGLE AND BLOGSPOT .. it was all being 'saved each and every key stroke' and I got it all back ..

Lastly .. I have been descended upon by the feeling of .. "Who cares one whit about my writing" .. NO I AM NOT DEPRESSED ..

Well .. thanks to Edward Everett Hale .. and thanks to Billie and her Backpackers Hostel here in Fairbanks (read her computer) .. I have gotten these words penned .. so now will travel to Manley Hot Springs .. and I will surface again in mid-November when settled in Royal Oak ..
in the Southeast corner of the State of Michigan .. in the United States of America ..

Keep Patti 'in your prayers' .. it looks exceptionally good thanks to radically early detection ..

With Love .. Bobba and the Bobbseys ..
