Yes, I have a nice cold coming on. But it's still better than having a
good day at work or home.

Yesterdays open house was still fun even with the rain. Remember the
the mortician and tattoo artist? Well they were last nights
entertainment. They are fire eaters and sword swallowers! Afterwards
Tim & I enjoyed a nice campfire with friends who came over.

Last night we had a pot luck dinner at the pavilion. Dinner was
followed with special entertainment provided by Mike Sales. We enjoyed
the dancing, singing and great conversation. Can't wait for today's
open house and the extra special evening entertainment. Rain go away ...

On another note . . .

We enjoyed some good down home music at The Burro Camp last night in
the cold.

No animals were harmed in the taking of this picture.

They're here!

The Tin Can Tourists are slowly filtering into the park in preparation
for their 90th Winter Convention this weekend. The activities begin on
Thursday and will continue until Sunday morning.

Yesterday Tim & I had a nice hike in the park. Then we hunkered down
for the afternoon rain that NEVER happened until we got a small
sprinkle sometime during the night. In the afternoon the couple
camping next to us in an '86 Airstream came over for a visit. What do
ya know .... He is a retired Fire Chief from outside of Chicago.

For the last few days it's been no AC or heater and the windows open
at camp.
