Well, hi there fellow Pipsters! Summer has taken me away from these old blue pages and I certainly miss you all. Well...ummm....maybe not ALL of you...but, umm, aww shucks...I DO miss each and everyone of your words, whether they be funny, sad, angry or hilarious. I am officially "trailer trash" and I LOVE it!!! I am not too certain about the "kissing the dead carp (catfish)" ritual, that is coming up shortly, but other than that and a few bug bites, the lazy, crazy days of this summer have been wonderful. I never thought sitting on a dock on a small manmade lake, feeding baby ducks would be something to look forward to each morning...but, oh, is it ever! There is no need for watches, television, newspapers, and dare I say it .... computers while camping. The sunrise and sunset tell you when to get up and when to start winding down. Winding down? Who's wound up to begin with?! My only wish is that I could have you all out there with me. No, not in the same trailer. Although the possibilities to that idea are endless!! lol. Take care, God bless, and I will be back as soon as I can coax my muse in from the little enchanted island on the lake. Hugs all round, Chrislane

I miss my sister!!

But soon I will be leaving on my annual trek out into the woods..
So, I'm getting pretty excited as well.
I know the feeling of being so secluded with no TV, newspapers, or computers..
and where I go..NO PHONES!

I'm trying to remember...when we went to Port Franks and Grand Bend as kids..did we take along our brother Joey?

And if so..did he have swim trunks?

Of course we took along our little wooden boy brother to the beaches. Joey won awards for his ability to float continually no matter how high the waves. Hee hee hee.
  As for swim trunks ... I think he borrowed a pair of Dads.

JOEY

Yes..I do recall him coming along with us and floating all day on the waves..

He had a terrible fear of driftwood if I recall.

Glad you're having a terrific summer Chris!

Chris, you sound happy, relaxed, and well...Rested!  What I wouldn't give to be sitting next to you slapping at the bugs.

Who knows...

maybe someday!  We miss you - but know that you'll hunker down in winter to look through the windows at the blue walls...

and write.

Annabelle must be stocking up!

Hi Chris!!! I'm so glad to see you!! I haven't been around too much lately, but I still miss you all too.

And, you know what? I started my "camping" trip out in the woods over 30 years ago when I married Herman in 1975. LOL I HATED it way out there in the country when we first married. His uncle had some cows that grazed in the pasture right behind our house. Every night I would wake Herman up telling him I heard a woman screaming. He said the cows were mooing, but they sure didn't sound like moo's to me! LOL I got used to it, though. But, I still hated living out of the city. And, I worked in town then, too, every day.....about 20 or 25  miles away.

It still wan't Pensacola, though, and I hated going home so far out there. I just wasn't used to not being able to go to the store up the street or around the block when I wanted to! And, it was so quiet!! I could hear every noise when I was trying to sleep...like crickets and frogs and stuff. I missed the sounds of trafic and city noises.

Then one day, I decided to go down to the little lake his uncle had behind our house. I had fished some in my life, but this was so different. I began to like it so much that I would go fishing every day that I had off work. It was so much fun.  I could walk all around the lake. Then one of his son's was going to "improve" the lake and messed it up. I couldn't walk all the way around it then and it wasn't as much fun, so I quit going down there to fish. I don't live over there any more, and there isn't a lake behind our house here, so I don't go fishing so much now. But I can understanding your loving the "camping out". I still live out in the country, though it's not as quiet over here as it was over there where we lived. It's still about 10 or 15 miles from the closest town and there aren't any stores within walking distance either.

Oh, it would be fun if we could all meet somewhere like that, wouldn't it? And I love that you and Nancy were talking about Joey. I mentioned him in the reply to yours and Nancy's duet. LOL
With love and hugs,
Ethel
