Plus I spend a lot of time in and around an airport so it gets old real fast.

Also, if your looking to fly into DTW Sundayís are usually the most expensive day to fly in.

I don't have to worry about that. I refuse to fly anymore.

I don't even like driving to the AP to pick someone up.

I will gladly give guests my address and they can figure out how to get here.

https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/f...d/29909280.cfm

Camping is a no go for us this year and maybe forever, long story short...we purchased a TT and had it all hooked up, had electrical issues before we left the dealership and ended up walking away from the deal (full story posted on the thread I shared)

Best of luck to you and your new boy!
Wow ! CF. Too bad about the camper !! We camped in FLA for a month one winter , stopped both coming and going ,plus everywhere we went in Indiana , Never had a issue with having. A pair of an eating DOBERMANS

I did ask when calling ahead and every one said we will be waiting on you to get here , not bragg8ng here , but they were the hit of the camp grounds = Rock Stars. Lol. I think it was a want to see thing ,, Kids were always great when we hit the road , they loved it ! But like us , were glad to get back home -

Now ! What old Doc thinks - I read all the posts on the camper site and the negitive. Response. Weíre Yapper owners ! I have run in with them type before - they really look down on us . Funny thing , All I had to do was pull out a milk bone and put it in between my teeth tell Kasia easy , lean down and she would take it out of my teeth easy , they looked at me in surprise and said they would never try that with there little dog nuff said ! Then they would stop by and see us lol

Donít give up , camping is a lot of work then add the Dobies , but so much fun

Iíve been taking a sewing break too, my injured leg just canít take sitting for too long.

I need to get a coat ordered from you before itís actually winter! I always say that and then I forget and itís cold and youíre backed up for weeks, so I pull out my ratty old Fido fleece for another season!

A little of both. The leader is a specialist in reptiles and an incredible photographer. I'm just an amateur naturalist happy to tag along, learn lots of new stuff and have fun!

Have a great time !

CRDobe I turn 70 next month, so for my special summer/birthday treat I'm joining a herpetology expedition to Guatemala to look for snakes, lizards and frogs. Birds too!
Ziva will go spend the 10 days with her "other family" and their dogs - she loves staying with them.

Corrupt government (think Coleman Young), corrupt unions (think Jimmy Hoffa), greedy corporations (think GMC/Ford) and racial strife took our beautiful city down in a matter of years. It was a perfect storm of ignorance, malfeasance, criminal activity and racism. Plus middle-class flight to the suburbs.

I hope that that our once wonderful city will return some 40+ years later.

Oh also... BTW. I don't pay to fly. FC via millions of earned miles. Again.. I HATE FLYING!

Fitzmar Dobermans I don't have much going on this summer with dogs. My club (Quaker City) has supported entries over fathers day weekend, but both judges dumped Mabel at shows so I'm not entering her. Mabel just went into her second heat today - so we are just hanging out. I'm hoping to bring her back out to shows later in the summer. She has 7 points with one major, and I am in no rush to finish her. Harvard is doing well at 11 1/2 - but I keep his outside time limited when it is really hot out. Jezebel is happy to hang out.
My younger daughter is home from college for the summer - she will be a senior in the fall. She is taking the GRE test tomorrow, and will work as a camp counselor as soon as the kids are out of school next week.
We are taking both our daughters and their boyfriends to an all inclusive in Antigua later this summer - we would normally do a cruise, but decided to try an all inclusive. Our oldest daughter now lives and works in NYC - which is only 2-3 hours away, so might get there once or twice.

dobebug Summer plans? I got no stinkin' summer plans!!

The sciatic problem is a wait and see what it feels like day to day. I think it's getting better but basically my summer plans wouldn't change much.

County fairs sound like they'd be about my speed. As for anything else--it's all I can do to keep the lawns mowed, edged and fertilized (so they'll grow faster so I can mow more often). And get all the rest of the stuff that provides summer flowers (and fall flowers and if that didn't take up enough time I am presently teaching ear posting 101 to a lady with a 10 week old puppy and posting modification for ears with unacceptable problems for another woman whose puppy is a year old and has standing ears but a pocket induced tip in one ear.

And I'm dog sitting for a week in a couple of weeks and dog sitting for a couple of weeks some time in July.

Good thing my idea of a hot vacation is staying at home reading 17 books taking naps every afternoon with the cats and going to at least one dog show a month even though I have nothing to show any more (sorry Toad but even though I could enter you in Veterans--over 11 years you have so many lumps I think they sort of mar your intrinsic beauty)

And now I shall go and plant the rest of the raised beds (all of which have a big row of phlox in full bloom--I don't remember planting them but they are in neat rows so I must have done that--last fall when I do remember tossing out some seeds that were supposed to in in the fall--but I thought it was Calendula--guess not.

Adieu
