It has been almost a week since I have sat down at my computer. Saturday morning my brother, Jim arrived at our campground. He spent the week-end with us. Before we left to go to the party in Helen, The Hermit and his wife Mariam stopped in to see us. It was great to meet them. They live close to my brother's home.

We took Jim with us to the party. Old friends at the party were Catfish,Erica,Jimbo,Denny,Leslie,


New friends that I met were
Dax Montana,
Elisson
and his wife, (she who must be obeyed),Joan,Sam and Georgia, she did not write a blog, but she did drive a school bus. My brother also drives a school bus so they had a lot in common. Eric,and Zonker, who used to have a blog but got to busy with his job to keep up so he let the blog go, but he still comes to blog meets.

We left Monday morning and got home Tuesday afternoon. It took forever to unload the trailer and do the laundry. Then Thursday Guyk thought his computer was fried.

He took my laptop so I was without a computer. Guyk was in the dumps because he thought his computer was fried. Then help arrived in the name of Zonker. He helped Guyk get his computer back up and running.

So the moral of this story is go to blog meets because you never know when you will meet someone that will be able to help you. Just when you think your life has fallen apart help arrives and once more you are a blogger again.

From all the posts and pix I've seen, it looks like ya'll had a hell of a time and I am sufficiently jealous! Hope I can make them next one. Glad you made it home safely.

It was a pleasure meeting you, Sweetthing, and hopefully next time we'll be able to spend more time visiting with one another.

As for Zonker - what can I say? The man's a prince. Really.

Rocky it is so much more fun to meet the people you have been talking to for months vs only knowing them via of the computer screen.

Elisson it was so nice to meet you too. And I thought your wife was much prettier in person than on your screen.

And Zonker, he gave me back my life as a blogger, thanks, Zonker.

Sweetthing,
Sorry I missed Helen. We are just about done harvesting the corn. Then I'll be paroled.

Take care.
