Happy Mothers' Day to all the Moms out there

sunny 37 °C

Dave came home from the hospital yesterday, Saturday to continue to recuperate at home. Thanks again to all of you for your messages of comfort and support - we certainly did appreciate knowing you were out there! Just to prove his is alive and kicking - here he is outside of the "Inpatients" entrance of the Welcare Hospital


Now our life will begin to settle into a routine again and we can resume exploring our environment and this facinating culture. Dave now has a work visa and we are in the process of having mine renewed. We will have to leave the UAE - probably cross the border to Oman and then turn right around and re-enter to obtain the visa. If Dave is feeling up to it we may spend a little tourist time there - but the drive may be taxing enough for him as he gains his strength.

We are thinking of all our motorcycle friends this morning because they are having their monthly meeting and perhaps the first ride of the season afterwards because it is supposed to go up to 16 and be fairly sunny according to my weather report! Here it is getting hotter and dustier but is pretty well the same as it has been every day since we arrived - 35 and hazy. The haze is from dust suspended in the atmosphere. The sky looks white rather than blue many days and all the buildings in the distance look like they are shrouded in fog. Some days it even smells dusty outside. They tell us that the summer is so hot your sunglasses fog up!

Hope all the moms out there enjoy their day!

Happy Mother's Day to you too Hazel! And best wishes to you Dave. Glad to hear you're on the mend.

OMG! Just logged in to see how you both were and saw the mail trail. I cant believe what the two of you have been through! Great news though to hear that Dave was getting bored and wanted his laptop... I wish I could give you both a hug - but hope that you can feel the one that I am sending! Jill
