Have a wonderful holiday in the mountains Alix!! Are you camping? I guess not, if you have a pool for lazing although I remember some campgrounds with pools. Ohhhhh how I love whitewater rafting!! I remember getting a "glacial facial" on a wild river in Alaska! Great fun!!

He DOES run faster than I do, but he has a gimpy knee and I can kick hard!

Just a note to let y'all know that I may lose internet service. A week or two ago my line got cut by some contractors and a temporary line was installed. The permanent line is still pending. I lost service a few minutes ago. I went out to the road where the temp line is laying across the road, gave it a good shake and my service is back but it will likely go again. We shall see how long it lasts.

Thanks for letting us know. I sure hope it doesn't go away for long at time.

Hope it gets fixed soon, Hoot! People driving over my internet every day wouldn't make me too happy.

Alix, have a marvelous time away!

Hoot, we had this problem in our old house only a semi trying to park in our neighbour's yard took out our cable, telephone, everything except electricity. Took weeks to get it all fixed. I hope it works out for you soon.

Margi, my concern was more about the abruptness and wording. It is not like Blissful. We all have concern for each other and express it here. I understand all the different reasons people come and go - but still get concerned. That is what makes this place special.

And while I am on the subject, I may not be around a lot from now until next weekend. Our youth conference starts Monday and I am busy trying to get things organized for my kitchen crew. Then I will be there basically all day just making sure things go smoothly. I absolutely love this week. I will pop in once in awhile but probably late or early in the day.

Now, now, Princess, jealousy will get you nowhere. And by the way, if you see her doing it all the time, what are you doing? Um Just sayin!
