TinCrumpet thank you(pm) and you are welcome. Whenever I read your posts my mind does it with an accent. So whether you have one or not in my mind you do and it's all very proper.
unfortunately I do .. strange how Americans like the English accent and vice versa ...

Hi Maggie... I can do the gathering spot here... I think Fort Stevens has it all... beautiful park... a forest and right on the ocean... walking, biking, cabins, yurts.
Near Astoria... lots of history there... and shopping available, Costco, tons of cute shops and eating in Astoria and near by... there might be a Walgreens by then.. it's in the works...
So if everyone likes that, we'll do Ft Stevens... you can look it up on line... you'll love it!!! hugs and love from here... gail

Happy Anniversary to Lilli and Hans, even though it is late.
I have missed you very much. I enjoyed getting to see England through your posts. I learned so much about your history and your beautiful country.
I hope good health will return to you and your family very soon.

Kay

Thanks, Gail. Will look it up.

Have had a lovely day with my best friend and her hubby of 45 years....walking, talking, shopping, talking, eating, talking, and drinking a bit back here in the Interstate....from my box of House Wine Riesling stashed in the frig.

All of the shopkeepers and restaraunt-ers are extraordinarily friendly, smiling and helpful. We had dinner last night at one restaurant, dinner tonight at another, and plan to hit yet another tomorrow. Everything delicious and well prepared. One could seriously put on weight doing this for too long. Good thing we are leaving Sunday.

Made a few small purchases, including two small cookie cutters....one a bone and one in the shape of a dog that looks remarkably like Lily. Have a recipe at home for dog treats, which I will make for her......jarred baby meat and wheat germ, if I recall correctly. She loves them, and these little shapes will be cute.

Also found a nice pair of sunglasses, at a bargain price...the very best kind....for my trip in a couple of weeks. I never wear sunglasses, but they are highly recommended in Greece all year round. Mine. I may have to take a selfie to show them off.

The RV park here is one big parking lot. Looks more like a fairground, but is very close to town. There are dog races here tonight and over the weekend. Yikes.

I love dogs, but there is a whole lot of barking going on. Good thing Lily is not here, as she would be going berserk.

Driving out here yesterday, I saw a hand lettered sign at one house that said "farm puppies for sale", and I thought....is a farm puppy like a rez dog? Unidentifiable mixed breed?

I had never seen that before...funny.

Time for some down time and then night-night. I am sooooo not a night person.


Maggie

So important to be grateful every day for what you have, for what is good and soul deep in a positive way in your life, and to appreciate the strengths and special qualities of those around you.

It helps to banish the darkness.

Doug leads me to roses, you know....to remind me that he, his love and his strength are near, and still there for me.

A small purchase in an antique shop yesterday. I will find a place to hang it in my kitchen.

We have had another wonderful day, with absolutely glorious weather...perfect for walking around in this lovely area.

They head back to MN tomorrow, me to Iowa City to see Doug's youngest and the grand there. I have yummy Cranberry Wine, some cheese, and summer sausage in tow....also a few pretty glass items for my front windows.

Home on Monday, and first stop will be to pick up my sweet Lily. Very odd to be out without her, but everything has stayed much cleaner without clumps of black fur on everything and everywhere.

Nothing exciting going on, just checking in. All is well, and I have enjoyed this time with my dearest friends.


Maggie

Hello Maggie ..
I absolutely adore Roses .. During DD celebrations
Ring of Steel 20 miles across and 10 miles inland around Obama..Cameron and other Heads of State prevented us from reaching the Beach .. So .. Instead .. we spent an emotional day at St.Manvieu .. 1627 Commonwealth burials of 2WW .. Sadly 49 of them unidentified and 555 German .. chatted to an elderly gent who was visiting his young Nephew .. DR Bayes Dragoon Guards who perished in a Tank .. poor chap was quite overcome at the thought he was still around in his 80's and the young boy only made it to 19 ..

Whilst Im on Maggie .. I hope you don't mind me acknowledging couple posts ..
