A camping I will go . .

Tomorrow I'm going camping . . in a camper with my son and grand-daughter and I feel like I'm a little kid. Camp fires, marshmallows . . here's the kicker . . I'm only going to be about eight miles from home. My brother and his family and friends go to the local camp ground a couple times a year and pretend they are far away from home. They all meet at one camp site and sit by the fire and relax, laugh and just enjoy each others company.
My parents just purchased this new camper so their grandchildren and their great grandchildren could experience camping like we did when we were younger. I use to love to go camping with my parents . . my brother loved to fish and my sisters would hang out and I LOVED TO SLEEP . . there is nothing like sleeping in the great outdoors. I have great memories of my family and those camping trips, we were a close family back than and still are.
But . . now that I'm MUCH older and my body hurts when it's not in my own bed . . I figured eight miles from home . . heck I can stay at the state park and leave at bed time . . shower at home and then head back to the park the next morning . . . so am I really camping?

Maybe I'll call this my "Mini Camping Trip" . . . lol

Blogging Vacation

I have been on a blogger's vacation . . . what that means . . I'm not sure. At almost 52 years old who would have thought that I would miss my home computer. I have been without a home computer for months and it was just to sick to fix. . . now I'm back in business. I thought I didn't need a computer . . how would I keep up with my world traveling daughter? or pay my bills? I was lost and I can't believe that I depend on an online typewriter.

I'm the biggest blog stalker of all and the only way I could catch up on, Ron, Chase, Mel, Pam and everyone else I stalk was getting on line at work . . which isn't always that easy. Reading all those blogs is like peaking in the window's of their souls. I am just a nonsense blogger . . . not really saying anything life changing or interesting but take the time to check out all the interesting writers out there and you will discover so much talent.
