Just realized it's been a couple of weeks since my last post. I guess that's going to be the way things go for a while here. I'm settling in to my summer home on Lake Mohave and while I love a lot of things about it, I miss having internet access.

Guess that deserves an explanation.

And every now and then I will drive up into town, but a happy meal, and sit in the back corner with my laptop updating the blog.
