Now the kids had the right idea. Eat and run. Much healthier than eat and eat. It was fun just watching them have such a good time with each other.

As the campfire warmed us outside, Jess' mulled wine warmed us inside. Laura called for an assistant and the raffle started. When Laura said, "Now we are going to have a raffle for the kids," some one unexpectedly chimed in immediately, "We don't want any more, we have enough." I laughed so hard!

There were also a few Halloween goblins roaming about. I missed that shot of the headless zombie, I was shaking in my boots.

Carol, as always, great pictures! Sorry we didn't see you in the UP. We did pass Ryan on the way down. Small world, huh?

Thanks Ralph and Jess.

As I post tonight, Brad is in ICU with multiple pulmonary embolisms, he has some lung tissue damage and they are thinning the blood. He actually is in better spirits than I. I am ill with worry. I was going to keep posting to occupy myself but I think perhaps I will just take a break and come back later to finish. Concentration is evading me totally.

Oh, gosh. That's not good news. BUT: a little hopeful news - I've got a friend who's had multiple emboli several times and now is completely under control. Hope the medicos can sort this one out fast - as they say, "they've got a pill for that." Hope Brad is o.k. and on his feet soon, 'cause I know that this is really scary! Hopes and prayers goin' your way.

Brad's doing well and impatient to move about. They will downgrade him to a regular room in a day or two. Guess at this point it's a matter of moderating the blood thinners and many many blood tests. He says the eggs were bland and he wants to be home. The doctor thinks the long truck drive to the UP triggered this. Recovery and resumption of previous activity levels will be the sticking point with Brad I am certain. Some changes will probably be in order and patience will be required. They were amazed he went so long before seeking medical attention. He's got that "persistent" streak, you know. Shake it off, walk it out...yeah who needs to breathe, ARGH! He actually extended the trip instead of going to the ER or getting back sooner because he enjoyed the surroundings so much. He doesn't listen to this old nag after this many years. And I am feeling much better and brighter today. There is nothing like a good scare out of the blue to snap your priorities back in good order. Thanks for your prayers and encouragement. It appears they are working. Now if I can get the man to become addicted to AirForums, the time will pass quickly, don't you think? Thank heavens for medical science and the wonders and care of the health providers. It is amazing.

Toastie the campground is the lakeshore campground and there is a campground also in the pines. It is Wilderness State Park in Carp Michigan. It's a favorite of ours and about 11 miles to Mackinaw City just before the bridge to the Upper Peninsula. Hey, are the girls planning that woman's spring rally? That would be cool!

DNR - Wilderness State Park

Well off to bring Brad a few things and have a visit. I will post more pics tonight. The island and boat trip was a great side trip.

Well represented were the fur babies. Chandra and Jeffrey's Rio, Dually, and Liberty, Steph and Dave's Dixie (once again sorry, I am remiss in the photo department...Steph have a pic handy?) Then Brad's Koa and my Kee Kee and Orie.

"Auntie" Laura is a real animal lover and I suspect she would have a farm full of pets if she had the room.
