Lake Placid

Sorry I didn't post last night - we went out to dinner and then a friend of Melissa's came over with her little boy - so cute - he was dressed up as a baby giraffe. (He is only three.) Anyway, by the time they left everyone was ready for bed.

I'll try and get pictures of the house today and post on the blog tonight - today is a day of college football and just taking it easy. We did go out and eat breakfast this morning and then Melissa and Justin rode us around.

Yesterday on our way down to Melissa's we stopped at the state park where we will be working just to check in and see where our spot will be. It is a very pretty park - with lots of trees. That just means we won't be getting any satellite TV - two months of paying for something we can't get. I might call them and see if they have a vacation service - where you don't have to pay for the satellite if your on "vacation" - I mean, if we aren't going to be able to use it I don't really want to have to pay for it. Let me say right here that Dan is NOT happy with this service - we can NEVER pick up any channels - I don't know if we need a technician to come out and look at it, but with the new unit we got a new satellite but we may need a new receiver box. I don't know - It is really getting to be a bone of contention.

Well, I'm going to see if I can finish my book I've been reading - Deception Point by Dan Brown - pretty good thriller - sure wasn't who I thought it would be - but I'm not telling in case any of you want to read it. Then I'll watch some football. I'll try and post again tonight.

Talk with you later


  1. mom, all you have to do is stick it out until february (through the superbowl). then kim and i can show you how to watch TV on your computer and hook that up to the TV so that everyone can see it. we can also set you up with a netflix account that will send movies and tv shows directly to your tv.

    i survived without cable for 8 months...and if i can do it, you can do it. just not during football season.

  2. My problem will be in Alaska - I don't think I'm going to have internet service or phone service, much less TV - what a bummer!!!! Don't know what I'll do!

  3. Every time our camping club visits Highland Hammock, I have been able to get a satellite signal, but I have Directv. Are you going to be parked on the eastern most road in the campground? If so, you should be able to get a signal.

    I like Dan Brown, but I have not yet read his newest book.


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
