We left the computer at the shop on Monday afternoon as we drove out of town to spend a few days camping at Cumberland Falls. We got home early enough this afternoon that I could zoom to town to pick up the computer again. I am hoping everything that was broken is fixed and that everything else still works as it should.

I took about 150 photos while we were camping. Southeast Kentucky is beautiful. I have several photos still to post but I promise not to post all of them.

It was terribly hot (heat index of 105-110° daily) so we spent most of the mid-day hours driving some of the "scenic routes" that are marked on the map and visiting air conditioned museums, flea markets, etc. in the area. Isaac found an excellent game store (the
"Game King") in Corbin.

Isaac is anxious to use the computer and I have been monopolizing it, messing around with my photos, so ta-ta for now.

Thanks, WIP. It's not really a very exciting life, but I'm fond of it. ;)

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
