Knock Knock...Is This Thing Still On?

Well , I think this has been the longest stretch that I have gone without blogging yet!

Part of the reason is my laptop quit connecting to the internet yet again. Last time that happened it took my son-in-law (yay!) Brad two days to fix it which is a lot for  him cuz hes a computer  genius! Anyway, I'm not going to bother with it anymore.  It's too old and been a lemon from day one. And our old desktop is such a dinosaur and so slow it drives me crazy! I am getting a new computer next month for sure. I'm posting this from my phone now but I hate typing on my phone with my fat fingers!

So let's see what has been going on in the last few months.....

When last I left you, Shauna and Brad had just gotten married. Now they have been married for 3 months and very happy!

Rich and I took a great road trip to the East Coast at the beginning of August.  

We did some serious traveling which was tough and I'm not sure we would do it again but it was worth it this time!!

Our first destination was Bar Harbor Maine and we stopped in Bangor to stalk Stephen Kings house. 

That seriously was a highlight of the trip for me! I have been a fan of his books practically since he started writing them! I could have stayed there all day but I heard he doesn't even live there anymore anyway. It was beautiful though! The grounds were immaculate and landscaped so beautiful. Plus it's HUGE! You can tell a bazillionair owns it!

Next: Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park

Lots of traffic out there on the East Coast. Did you enjoy driving I-95? Did you get into Boston? Guess I'll have to wait for the installments.

Is this really you?

You made a post! YAY!!

That is some house, I'll tell ya. Goodness. It does sort of look like something I would expect him to live. So, does that mean he sold it? You look so cute standing there, buddy.

Road trip! That sounds like a fabulous vacation and I'm so glad the two of you were able to get away. I've only read a couple of Stephen King's books, but I've seen quite a few of his movies. With his unique imagination, I wonder what the inside of that house looked like when he lived there.

By the way, I'm glad you're back. You were missed... :)

How wonderful that you got to travel to Maine! Summer is the perfect time to go too. Hope you had some lobster rolls! Yum. Best wishes on the new computer. I know that Apple will be rolling out their latest desktop computers in the next month or two. Their newest laptops were released last spring.

So glad you are back. I missed you.

I so know about computer/connection problems. I had AT&T here today. Hopeful for better connection now. But I won't hold my breath.

Maine is such a beautiful place. We were there for about 2 days on our way to Nova Scotia. Anxiously awaiting pictures

Welcome back!

I've never been to Maine. That would be some trip for me, coming from California. I bet it was beautiful. I'm having some issues with my laptop as well. I hope it holds out a bit longer.
