Camping - oh the joy

As I mentioned in the other post I went camping with Carrie and Matt. We had a good weekend. I was sort of group outing and we met some other cool people there.
Jo Ann is walking with Carrie - they were cleaning up the breakfast dishes.

I cooked and they cleaned, that was kind of nice. You can see the giant blue and white tent past the cars, that is my tent. Matt's is the solid blue that you can barely see.

Matt wandered over and I got a picture of him. Oh I have to find the funny picture of me that he took.

Ok, there is the picture of me. It was raining and I was getting into my tent, or his at the moment. I think his. Matt has a cute little camera and we had fun playing with it.
Once the rain started mine stayed safely in the jeep.

Down here is the picture of the tents up in the back yard. Well, I would try to go take another picture, but they are all over the deck and in the garage. Matt, Carrie - if you think we got wet Camping, You should have seen Tom and I last night. We were in Torrential rain last night taking stuff down, because the big tent tried to blow away. I have to go dig the rest of the stakes out of the ground. I need a bunch of those yellow stakes.

The food tent wasn't going anywhere till I pulled up the one Tom put in the front and back at the zippers.

Off to try and dry out tents again.... Now have to see if there is two tons of grass on them to get cleaned now. I guess I need to buy some tent seam sealer...

Where did the summer go?

Time for a couple updates.

I would hazard a guess that I have had a pretty good summer. As my left foot now wears a post -op shoe for the next couple of weeks. I'm not really sure what I did - there is a possibility of brusitis (sp) from working on cement floors. OR I hurt my foot playing paintball and really didn't notice.

I did notice my foot this past weekend while camping. I have not gone camping in YEARS. I had a fairly good time. The giant tent Tom bought for me is a little too large for cool weather camping. Not that you expect cool weather in AUGUST, but what can I say. To save myself from the rain, I slept comfortably on my air mattress in the back of the jeep. Can we say - it's good to be short.

Piggies are doing well. Winslow had a URI in July - no surprise. But then Lenny broke one of his bottom insisors and was rather unhappy for 2 or so weeks. The broken one has since grown back and Dr. G clipped both bottom teeth so that they match. Lenny is a much happier pig now.

Tom is working his butt off. That is fairly normal. He has taken days off here and there and has grilled much meat for Tammy and friends this summer.
My job at the camera store is going ok. I have in essance taken this month off from sales. My numbers SUCK. Oh well. Everyone else in the store seems to be making up for me.

I applied to a couple teaching jobs, had one interview and alas things are going no where in that field. Now what to do?
I think I'm gonna start looking for a office type job. I could use some sitting down again.

Ah yes, and the end of the summer blast will be Trina's Wedding. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.

Several friends turned 40 or 30 this year. Congrats to all. My 20 year high school reunion will be next fall I believe. OH BOY - watch out world.

Hope you enjoy the rest of August.
