Lily had that experience in a deep tide pool at Padre Island NS, I believe, Carol....but she never seemed to remember it.

Too cold for the lake today, tho, as it feels more like winter again.

The weekenders have cleared out, leaving us without another RV in sight...and, that's okay.

Nice to have friendly folks to visit and chat with, but we are better at being alone this year than last.

Is that a good thing? Probably.

It's reality.

Nippy...last...night.

Heater running, rather than windows open, but it's not going to last for long. Looks like seasonally moderate temps are due in the next couple of days, and will carry thru til we head home.


I sat crocheting a prayer shawl much of yesterday's cold and rainy afternoon, with the PBS documentary "Africans in America" on my little flat screen TV in here.

There is a commercial on in SC about non-traditional college students, set to the Wizard of Oz's "If I Only Had a Brain", which I have been, and am still, completely enamored with. I love it.

Non traditional students, as in mothers and others going back at a later age, and from all walks of life.

I myself went back to college as a young mother, post divorce, with a 5 year old and a 1 year old, and got my BSW.

At any rate, this ad is about the work and effort and determination it takes to do college, especially in a non-traditional way...when you must also work, and/or have other demands to tend to, such as those of a family...also about how important an education can be in pulling yourself out of the dredges of life one can find oneself in, and how the strengths needed to do this successfully directly translate to a good work ethic valuable to an employer. (My English teachers often accused me of run-on sentences.)

The opening line is "so my kids don't have to forage, got two jobs to pay a mortgage, but I've also got a brain...", and one segment shows a young black woman walking thru this stone tunnel...that looked familiar, but I couldn't quite place it.

Til yesterday, watching this PBS series.....the stone tunnel in this ad, that the black woman is walking thru, is part of the slave holding area at Sierra Leone.

This is a really inspiring, uplifting, commercial, which I'm sure it is meant to be...and, if you get a chance to see Africans in America on PBS, it is also really excellent. It covers the onset of slavery here, thru the present day.

Sad, compelling, tragic, heartbreaking, yes....but good to be reminded where this country came from in the not-so-distant past, and inspiring to see the strengths of individuals...black and white...who stood up, showed up, and took action...highlighted and laid out, for viewers to see.

We've come a long way in this country, but man's inhumanity to man has not...here and elsewhere in the world.

It's always there, it never ends, it just changes shape.

A small soap box today...but it's my thread.


I'm starting to get psyched for Alumalina, and seeing some folks I generally see only there. Good people, lead by a good man.

It's all about the leader, you know, and the tone they set....no matter where, no matter what the setting, it's all...about...whose...at...the top..


Pan bread baked, Lily has had a long walk already this morning, and is down for her post walk nap.

Nothing really going on here, going to do in the next few days some fine tuning of the usual pre-rally spruce-up of the Interstate's interior.....I can't help myself.

When you will have people in and out of your home, you clean.

The weather is mild and beautiful, and we've done lots of visiting today with neighbors and admirers of the Interstate.

The couple across from me have just restored an old Shasta...cute as a button, and this is only their second trip out.

I shared favorite apps and Edisto love...they have never been, but will be going.

Met a couple at the Bellfest here, whose son and daughter in law live a half mile from me in Illinois. Small world.

All is well.

They were talking about TTC, but I can't remember if they had joined or intended to.

They had just finished a complete refurbishing, and starting to camp.

I saw two, nearly identical, Shasta trailers at Edisto, one owner I spoke with who was on his way to a TTC or some similar rally.

I have been tromping footpaths through the woods here on walks with Lily, especially these non weekend days when the campground is nearly empty. She rips and romps, and loves it.

Feeling strong and somewhat bullet proof....today I fell three times.

The first two, soft landings onto leaf covered, cushioned ground, after tripping over something hidden.

The third, wrenching my knee going downhill to the little lake spot, landing hard and sideways into a tree....which fortunately broke my fall and prevented a longer tumble onto the rocks below.

I should have known to change my course after the first two.

Some folks on the lake I could have hollered to, if I had broken something or couldn't get up, but fortunately I could, as there was otherwise no one around.

A knot on my shin...where I hit the tree...a few scrapes and, of course, the now stiff and swollen knee.

I really do need to stay on smooth, predictable, surfaces, when by myself. Or, maybe take my walking aid that I bought for New Mexco last year.

Doug would say..." Don't feel sorry for me, I feel sorry enough for myself".

Ouch, sorry it happened. Nothing like a little dose of Murphy's Law when all is going smoothly.

Rest up.

Yep, and thanks.

I had just found the other day an elastic knee brace in one of the cabinets...from another knee event several years ago.

I've got it on.

Maggie, hope your knee is doing better.
I fell last month while on an outing in Florida.
It was on a path with slippery wet oak leaves on a down hill slope that caused the spill not my clumsiness
I went sliding and loss my balance. After laying on the ground for a bit, I picked myself up and went on.
But The knee was sore for a week. I Felt it protest every time I was climbing up a flight of stairs. It seems that I was either going up or down stairs a lot that week.

Thanks.

I avoided the steep path down to the lake the other day because it was wet, but have been down there several times since without a problem.

Not sure exactly what happened yesterday, but it was fast.

I have had worse injuries, will take it easy the next day or two and just ride it out.

And, I will stay out of the woods.
