Hanging out in PA, Sept 2011

       This passed week we have been enjoying 1000's of old photo's and 35mm sides our son Cy put on a CD for us.  He has some type of device that he can copy slides and photo's. He said it took many many many hours. Did we really look like that?  Picture is our first anniversary spent in Bermuda.  Hard to believe that little 4 inch disk can hold so many photo's and memories.  We put it on slide show and just let it run.  Thank you Cy.

     In July we got an e reader.  We purchased a Nook.  Linda is a ravenous reader.  She will read a couple of books a week, sometimes more.  I don't read near as many, but between us we had a little over a 100 books we carried in our RV. So since we got the Nook we dispose of about 80 books.  We each kept about 10 books.  This way if one of us is using the Nook the other one has something to read, should we both want to read at the same time. 
      Our home town library just started an e book loan site.  We can get current books via email and download them onto our Nook.  We can also reserve books. Works just like going to the Library, and the books go away after the 2 week lending period. Pretty neat if we can get it to work.  So far we are having some problems. UPDATE: after several hours and  about 6 long  phone calls to the Bethlehem Public Library and finally taking my laptop in, Jennifer in tech support at the Library got the program to work. Its a new program at the library and they are still working out soon bugs.
      Received an email that  a lot of our older pictures from our blog are not there. We checked and sure enough, a lot of pictures from sometime in 2009 and back disappeared.  Don't know what happened.  We will try to get the pictures restored. .  This may be a major job.  We'll see what we can do.
     This week I saw  on another  blog, call our life style called  "wheelestate", instead of owning real estate we own wheelestate.  I like that.  It's a good  acronym we can add to others we use, like, our RV is our "cow", condo on wheels.
     We have been spending the week at our son Marks home dog sitting. Mark and his wife Tracey are on vacation. While here we have been busy seeing our other sons and their wives as well as seeing friends. Blazer had a visit with his hometown vet in her new practice. He is doing well, but did loose a good amount of weight. Got a few prescriptions for on the road. Other them the weight loss, and a lump on the side of his face about the size of a golf ball, he hasn't slowed down. The surgent said upon initial diagnoses he may only have a month or two,  or possibly more. We keep hoping he has  many more months ahead. 

    Thought for the day; I want to die in my sleep like my Grandfather... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.”
