THIS MORNING'S WALK THROUGH A FIELD OF CLOVER
In his Friday blog RICK talked about Microsoft's Paint program & included an example of the Bayfield Bunch logo I made up nearly a year ago using that program. We had that logo implemented into a business card format thanks to Kelly's son & his graphic business. We have found the cards an easy way for people we meet to access our site. I will sometimes leave a card in a restaurant, visitor's center, a bulletin board, or under a rock cairn along the trail. Always nice to receive an email from someone if & when they find one of our cards. And thanks to Rick for using our card as an example of Microsoft's Paint program. By the way, drawing this card out was no easy feat using just the mouse. Wished they had something like a USB 'plug-in-pencil' for drawing things!! (Drawing was another hobby of mine as a kid)
Judy, over at TRAVELS WITH EMMA has taken the Picasa photo editing program plunge & is doing quite well with it right off the bat. She is currently in the Yellowstone Park area & having a great time touring all the scenic sites.
Today turned out to be a totally rainy Saturday. Luckily I had backed the utility trailer into the car port a few days ago so Bruce & I were able to get a few more things done & even stay dry in the process. Blog reader Wil, in a comment the other day asked, "have you cleaned and repacked the bearings yet, Al?" Co-incidentally, Bruce had noticed one of the trailer wheel hubs missing last week & said he would clean & repack the bearings because they were probably full of dirt & grime. That job was one of the things Bruce took care of today complete with putting on a new hub cap. I spliced all the trailer wiring back together again & actually got the tail lights functioning properly so it was a productive day for both Bruce & I despite the gloomy rain.

In MARGIE'S BLOG on Friday she talked about meeting some fellow bloggers (BIG DAWG AND FREEWAY) & that started me to thinking about a few RV blogging folks we have met as well in our travels. The more I thought about it the more I began to realize we had met more folks than I had first thought. To the best of my ability this is our list & apologies to anyone I may have temporarily forgotten. As I list each person I will follow with their blog site name & the place where we met them.

For Kelly & I with our rather hermit like RVing lifestyle, the fact that we have met this many people is nothing short of amazing. We have met other folks as well but I have only included the RV BIog gang here. I know there are RVer's out there who could fill up whole hard drives with lists of people they have met but for us I sure never figured we would ever meet many people, let alone this many people. Eeee-Gads, we are becoming quite the social butterfly's!! Crazy, huh:))
WE HAVE HATCHED ANOTHER BATCH OF BABY ROBBINS IN THE CARPORT
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?'
Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'
'Really!? Like a newborn baby!?'
'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.'
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.

The only thing better than right now will someday be the memories of right now...... AL.
My goodness, you've met a lot of folks in your travels. I wanna be on your list one of these days.ReplyDelete
Al, you have met quite a few bloggers. There are some who have met more and some who have met less. The joy is that you have met and enjoyed that time and the relationships.ReplyDelete
Loved the Groaner's Corner story.
Take care and be safe.
Mike & Gerri
That's a pretty good list for an old curmudgeon like yourself! I'm sure glad Paulette and I are on it! Next time, we'll have to make sure we have a bit more time to visit.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the mention, Al. Dang, you sure have met a lot of blogging folks! There are quite a few on my list that I'd like to meet sometime, including yourself and Kelly. Hope you can help me on my latest blogger question. :)ReplyDelete
That is an impressive list of Blogger Meet and Greets! It must have been a lot of fun.ReplyDelete
Have a great week ahead.
nice list of bloggers you have met..ours is growing slowly..one day you will be on our list!!ReplyDelete
Al, Just wanted to let you know that I've always been able to see the comments on your blog directly below the post. I guess Blogger just doesn't let the blog writer see them!ReplyDelete
And now, I don't have to click on leave a comment on your blog, the box to do so just is there. Makes it a little easier. :)
Al--the Kofa Mountains where we all met last winter is in Arizona, not California. That's an impressive list!ReplyDelete
Are you sure you are really a curmudgeon? For a curmudgeon, you certainly have a lot of blogger friends and bloggers that you have met! It just goes to show that being yourself is the way to go. Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog!ReplyDelete
Al , you need to take a North America map and put pins in each place of the bloggers you meet are from..kind like a voodoo doll! You crafty son-of-a-gun...You are really a social butterfly under that curmudgeon exterior!!ReplyDelete
Hope to also be on your list someday!ReplyDelete
