My Labor Day

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services 607851

Some people like to boast, like Joe. I don't know what Titus and Philemon contribute (they are guinea pigs after all) but at least they are modest.

I feel like I work hard helping my adult children out but it's a labor of love and I'd probably go nuts if I didn't have work to do.

I hope you all took a day off over the long holiday. We enjoyed our last camping weekend of the year.

Although the pictures say "Fall" the 80 degree temps said Summer. We enjoyed company that stayed over night on Friday and into late Saturday. We also enjoyed the fall colors and the nearly warm waters as we went swimming several times during this trip.

The trip down was not without incidence. Ever since we purchased the camper the awning has been a real pain in the ass. Timmothy and I had taken it down and apart several times but it never would work quite right. It came partially unrolled on the way down and really was a bit of a mess so we removed the hardware and cut the whole thing off at the camp site. Good riddance to real rubbish. Now I will buy a canopy and we can place it where we want and we can also use it at home if we wish.

If you don't recognize the picnic table above it is a "Suitcase" picnic table. It totally folds up and is self contained. They are amazingly durable. This one is about 30 years old.

As mentioned yesterday, the whole family goes camping, including Baby. BTW you see the ladder ball goal... NOT durable! Something on it needs repair every time we use it.

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm 

Speaking of awnings. My friend made a blue tarp tent that he would drive his camping trailer under so nothing was in the sun. Wish I had a picture of it. It was easy to assemble and worked the "nuts".

Hello Bob,  I was relaxing on my cover patio and just watching the squirrels run back and forth.  Hope it is cooling off there.

Hi Bob- When I first met Larry we'd go camping...tent and all. He made a camping box that held some supplies and we'd bring a small tv to watch weekend football. Thankfully, those days are over! LOL

I really appreciate that you missed my presence here Nina Hollander, Broker . I know I'd miss yours and start worrying if I had not heard from you in 3 or 4 days.

The temperature has been on a roller coaster here Will Hamm and at this point I am NOT looking forward to the upcoming lows.

I've actually contemplated going back to tent camping Kathy Streib . So much simpler and less expensive.

I don't really like to be around people who are always boasting, my crowd is the humble crowd that allows their actions to speak louder than words, haha.

I am with you on that Brian England . I too love to be around humble people and want to puke when I'm around braggarts.

Well thank God you got rid of that mess on the camper!  Ugh! I would have done the same thing!  80 degrees sounds like winter to me and I so look forward to the 80's soon.

Anna "Banana" Kruchten as many times as Timmothy and I took it apart and put it back together it was a no brainer to just get rid of it. I felt so much better that it really made this one of our best camping trips.

It was really a lot of fun Myrl Jeffcoat . My best friend came down with me on Friday and we enjoyed a great dinner and a good breakfast on Monday before the rest of my family joined us.
