Maggie, my Dad used to tell us we were "mutts" when asked about our heritage. Mom would always give us die react answers...Dad was of Dutch/German, Mom of Scotch/Irish....then, she would say,"like your Dad said..."Mutts" but, strong bred mutts!"

Have a great time at your rally. For me, I'm getting ready for my trip with Ray and company. Leaving Sunday early. As it ends up, I will not have travel companions, (both had to cancel), but, that 's OK. After my 4 way trip to Ft Worth, Texas, I'm feeling confident.

You will be fine, Evelyn...and you will love Ray and Nancy.

Give them each a hug for me.

The crew has gone into town for dinner, I have had leftover ribs and am in a reclining position.

My back and right hip are seriously aching from packing and whatever today...too much heavy something or other.

I feel a bit sorry for myself, doing it all, then remember my alternative is to stay home.

I was up at 4, had the house cleaned and cookies baked by the time the bug guy came for his quarterly spray...a nice young man, sent him on with oatmeal cookies for his breakfast.

I would feed him cookies every time, he has done such an excellent job of eliminating ants.

I will not be up late tonight.

Take it easy on yourself, Maggie. I know what you mean...after today's chores and errands, I am experiencing a bit of the same. But, as you said, we either stay home....or "Buck up and do what needs to be done." I prefer the latter....I'm gonna go....till I can't...then, I'll still try! That's just what we do!

I felt much better this morning, after being off my feet a good 12 hours.

Have had my walking shoes on with the orthotic inserts all day, too. I may be getting to the point where I need to have them on any time I am upright.

Lots of sitting around and visiting today, catching up....men in one group, women in another.

Several of we women here do needlework of some sort, too, which of course lends itself well to sitting and gabbing.

Not all sitting, tho....Lily has had 3 walks.

I finished this hat this afternoon...a Sun Hat. I thought the pattern was cute, and have been working on it for awhile.

It is...ummm....a bit large ...and I didn't put in as many rows as it called for.

It looks a bit like a multi-colored version of The Sorting Hat in the Harry Potter series....

Perhaps a gentle wash in warm water could shrink the hat a bit?

The ladies in my house both crochet, but only daughter will wear hats.

I haven't put it on in front of a mirror, yet, but the ladies all laughed when I tried it on, so I think it looks pretty ridiculous.

We had a grand and leisurely day yesterday, most of it spent sitting around under the shade trees and visiting.

I am in water conservation mode, so filled my solar shower from the pump yesterday and set it in the sun to warm it up....going to use it for a shampoo after awhile, my biggest consumer of potable water.

If you've never been to Moraine View, it is one of those places that teaches you the difference between potable and palatable water. My 30 gallons of fresh water will be stretched to get thru 5 days.

Several of us went into the restaurant on the lake for lunch...one of those places that does breakfast and lunch only, everything cooked to order by the older couple that run it.

They have homemade, breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches. Yum

We sat to eat on an outside deck overlooking the lake, which had a good breeze and lovely view.

We were at 23 rigs as of last evening, with several newbies attending for the first time.

A friendly, convivial, welcoming group.

Nice to be here.


Maggie

That hat would fit best a person with a large, cone shaped head.

I'll find something to do with it, or someone who can wear it. I did enjoy making it.

It's been a very nice, relaxed day here at Moraine View.

We have some lovely new first timers, plus the old crowd...some of whom have been coming for the 14 years this rally has been going on.

We talked...and talked...and talked...ate a bit, did our respective needlework, and had a great potluck.

Hot, but a good breeze off the lake kept things pretty comfortable in this part of the campground.

Tomorrow, many will head home, some of us will stay til Monday....starting and ending this rally as a small group.

It's been a great rally....good people and conversation, great food, very relaxing.

Heading home later this morning, service at Cummins scheduled for tomorrow, tires to get replaced, etc., etc.

Yesterday morning I discovered my IPad was not charging.

Careful inspection revealed the charging connection point inside the IPad has been broken somehow. Boo.

Carelessness on my part, no doubt.

We have a place in Bloomington that may be able to fix it...if not, it will have to be sent in to the Apple Store.

I do have a laptop at home, and the phone, to keep me connected, but I will miss my Mini for whatever period it is out of service.

All is well here, been a very nice time in a familiar and beautiful spot.

I stopped at Connecting Point in Bloomington, and they fixed my IPad...while I waited.

I wanted to weep with joy.

Not broken, but "gunk" in there, that they took out with some sharp and pointy tool that I would never think of putting to it myself.

Yeah for good service and for staying connected

Not being techy or social media myself it has amazed me how attached I've become to my tablet and Android smart phone. I really like both of them and likely don't use either to capacity.

So many things to look up and get informed about.

For inquiring minds, and you know who you are, I will have an IPhone 6s delivered to my door tomorrow.

I will be in the loop.

Verizon has a great deal right now on an accessory package, which is an Otterbox case, 3 screen protectors, and a Smart Chip car charger for $49.95... and they then waive the $40 upgrade fee.

What a deal.

Laundry is done up...it was an absolutely perfect day yesterday to hang things outside, and there is nothing to compare to the scent of line dried anything.

I'm catching up on the news, after the long weekend with very little, and am horrified as I learn the details of the shooting in Orlando.

My heart goes out to them all.

I do wish the news outlets would stop giving these dementors such coverage, as I really feel this only feeds those out there who would do such deranged harm to others.

There needs to be a balance between providing coverage of incidents and promoting individual notoriety by plastering names and faces everywhere.


Took the Interstate out to Cummins Crosspoint for what they call their "full coach service"...they dropped me off back at home, will fully service the engine, and also have propane at $1.82 a gallon, so will top that off while its up there!

Who knew? I am so delighted!

Called Don Owen and ordered new tires...I only need 3 this time, as I lost and had replaced that one last summer ...those in place later this week will have me ready to go for rest of season travel.

I'm starting to get psyched about KY & TN beginning next week, seeing mimiandrews, and then the trip west....I'm ready to get on the road and start meandering.


My friend in northern MN now has my prettiest chalcedony rose from last summer, and is doing a light polish on them in her rock tumblr before I see her next month.

Am wanting to have a few of these made into pendants for the girls and grand girls in the family, so am hoping this does enough without losing their very special character.

Not much going on here...lots of odd bits to do before I take off again, but everything seems to be falling into place.

I complain at times, but can't really complain...ya know? Life could be much, much worse, and I have so much to be grateful for.

I still work to reframe my thinking from I'm alone to I'm traveling by myself, and it's okay . Still a work in progress.

I do feel and believe that Doug remains my life co-pilot....encouraging me, supporting me, providing a bit of guidance, and nudging me a bit when I need it....but I so badly miss his companionship and the 24 hour balancing act that his sage advice and wisdom provided for so many years.

Life. He would want me to go on, and I am.


Maggie
