No Joy in Mudville

The golf courses are still under water although the weather forecasters promise sunshine today. And tomorrow. And then it will rain for four days. Sigh.

We've been visiting with the youngest son, futzing around the rig, making plans. This week I met with a representative at my pension board and got the paperwork filled out to start receiving my pension in January. Yep, another hill to be over. But getting paid to be over the hill is not so bad.

I've been working on campground reservations and have discovered how spoiled we are by having "free" membership camping. I have made reservations for two separate weeks in Vermont and am cringing at the prices I had to pay--although I understand why the owners have to charge so much. The camping season in the northern states is understandably short but it's going to be a major hit to our budget to travel along the eastern seaboard this summer. And no, we don't/won't "camp" at W*lmart. And now we hear on the news that this summer will be a bad one for potential hurricanes along the east coast.

Of course it will.

Can you tell I've been a tad affected by S.A.D?

Inquiring minds want to know how was the lasagna? Don't hold out on us Momma. giggle

I figure if you are going to start getting a pension in January I can start calling you Momma now. heehee

Sorry the campgrounds are so expensive but I promise to use my powers to make sure the hurricanes stay away from you. :D

My brother always camps at Army Corps parks. They are inexpensive, well tended and always on the water. Not sure about golf course availability though.
Here come the rains here. Supposed to be the start of a seven day'er.
