On top of the mountain

Hello all - well, we made it to Don's property without a problem. We were only about 40 miles from the property and we called Dave - Don's friend that sorta oversees the property - and he met us and helped us to get settled. I don't know if we would have found it without his help. It is just down a little path - but the place is beautiful. Just out in the middle of the woods - but we have all the comforts of home (or just about) - electricity, water, and sewer. The only thing we don't have is TV - no reception because of the trees. Oh well, it just means I'll get caught up on my reading over the next few days.

I'm sorry, I did not take pictures again today - but I will tomorrow. After we got all set up we went into the Wal Mart Super Center about 20 miles away. Picked up a few things and then came home - I fixed a pot of homemade soup in the Crock Pot for dinner. It was a packet of soup that a friend down in Dowling Park had given us. It was a little spicy for me, but other than that it was pretty good.

Oh! I almost forgot - I opened a Face Book account this afternoon and I'm on Farmville now. If any of you out there want to be a "friend" please let me know - or if you want to be one of my "neighbors" on the farm let me know too. I'm just learning how all this works - Face Book and Farmville. Right now I have Strawberries, Eggplant and Wheat planted. I probably should have left some of my field's empty since I started so late in the day. Oh well, we'll see how it goes - but if anyone has any advice for me please let me know - I need all the help I can get.

I'm not sure what we are going to do tomorrow - Dan just likes to sit outside by his fire pit and look around - I'm not sure what he thinks about when he is sitting there - but he does enjoy it and that's fine. I want him to do whatever makes him happy.

Right now the plan is for us to be in Buffalo, New York next Monday and spend three days there - we'll get to see Niagara Falls and meet our friends from Dowling Park. Other than that I don't think we have any plans for around here. We are too far from Philadelphia to make a day trip down there and we are too far from New York to go there - sooooo, I guess we'll just hang around here and take it easy. Tomorrow I will balance the check book - pay the bills, and balance the "black book" to see how we did this month - with all the traveling and the purchase of the two motorcycles I am pretty sure we did not do well at all. But the truth is in the figures. I will let you know what the truth is tomorrow.

Well, I don't have anything else to report. Hope all is going well with all of you - Dana, we haven't heard from you in a while -let us know how things are - either on the blog or give us a call - we get worried when we don't hear from you. Crystal and Kim - I know you are getting ready for your trip to New York, but I hope you are getting things done in the loft also. Melissa, I'm sure you are still unpacking things in the new house - I'll be there in about a month. Carol and Betsy - I'm sure you guys are getting excited about your upcoming trip - hope you enjoy. Ruth Ann, aren't you on Face Book???? Let me know how to do things.

Okay guys - Hope to hear from you and until then - I'll talk to you tomorrow.


  1. I just got Dad's message late..I'm still here! Not a lot to report..the job hunt continues and I'm starting to get discouraged. I'm going with my friend from school this Friday to the OR, so I'm excited about that! Hopefully, I'll be able to meet some people and see if that is really something I want to pursue!

    The girls are doing fine! Cori has all "A's" in her classes (or at least that is what I'm told) Hallelujah!! Paige is doing AWESOME in school this year, big difference from last year. I know volunteering at SPCA has helped. Ashley is a big hit at school and everyone fusses over her ALL THE TIME!

    I'll call later on and let you know how Friday goes...Enjoy the solitude! Love ya!

  2. Good to know you found the PA campground. I am sure it is really beautiful. I will stay up and watch BF play tonight for you. I may not be able to check in on you when we leave here on the 9th. But will catch up with your travels when we get back on the 20th. I think you will be here in FL by that time. C Whoops - he just threw the first touchdown of the game.


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...
