Thanks for all your wonderful comments on the Choose To Move - I plan to highlight it every Monday! Now to show you something I finally finished...it is a Sugar 'n Cream cotton washcloth in 'Country Side Ombre' color.
Next, I want to update you on that 'cute' red fuzzy bug I took a picture of on my last walk. VELVET ANT....a wingless wasp! Cute to look at and thankfully I didn't touch it..I hear a killer type sting that last days!
I want to share my latest adventure with Nugget hosted by Petco for our Golden Meetup group (and any other dog lover- this is a yearly event) on the San Diego Horn Blower cruise of the bay! We had a fantastic time...if you ever come to San Diego this is a lovely short cruise that gives you lots of information concerning SD bay and a very nice view of everything. The morning we went it was quite hazy, but that didn't stop Nugget from enjoying that sea breeze blowing into her face! I believe you can go to 'pictures' on the left side of the Meetup link and view them...I don't think you need to be a member! There are many pictures taken of the cruise, but here are a few of mine. After a while she just rested and gazed into the sea through the 5" gap on the side!
Last night I pulled out a 300 pc puzzle to work on with my kids. I really love working on puzzles...plus doing them really brings out kids thoughts and feelings about stuff...school, baseball, or just life in general! Needless to say, it was completed in about 2 hours. I'm going to use Puzzle Saver on this one!
and finally.....the 'K' is for KOA. I know I'm cheating a bit because it should be of a picture I have taken, but again, this was the first thing that popped into my head! The campground hyperlinked was the KOA that my husband and I and my parents came very close to buying! This Polson, MT campground at the time in early '90's was just built, incidentally, they were just now being built with logs by the same company that supplied the logs of my parents present and past log cabin..... we had traveled to it, looked at balance sheets, took thoughtful walks...we had traveled around seriously to about three KOA's in the nation -one in NC and one in Missouri, but my Dad had fallen in love with this one. My daughter was about 2, my husband was home in CO Springs working hard (he trusted my thoughts and reasoning on this), -- we were down to signing the contract--........but I stopped it....although I love my parents I knew this was going to end up being a hard thing trying to raise a family and having my parents RIGHT THERE....it was too final...we were only 5 years or so into our marriage..we wanted another child...the thought was we would run it and parents would support, but still have their travel time. We would be 50% partnership between families. I saw my love for doing this in my Dad's eyes as he looked over the beautiful Polson Lake there in Montana.... but I couldn't do it..WE couldn't do it. I felt so bad I stopped my Dad's dream of this beautiful place and owning & running a business (they could not have ran it themselves)...however, I'm not sorry for changing courses. Soon after that is when my husband decided to re-join the Navy- things fell into place...it ended up that when he went to a recruiters office-it was his old Senior Chief on his past ship- he said, "No problem...I'll get you back in!" (that was the time period of cut backs or should I say low manning)...thus leading us to these last few years until retirement. Back then I also questioned if this particular campground could sustain two family incomes-it wasn't a year long campground....of course this was before the RV boom and now looking at it on-line...I'm sure it is doing VERY well.
KOA's (Kampgrounds of America) are great places to stay and is a great franchise if anyone is interested in owning one! -So yes...this is my "K"...
