I'm a happy camper!

While my son was here, he stayed quite busy:  He helped Cliff work on the big hay baler, put trim on the add-on lean-to out at the shop, and various other chores.  Cliff actually made a list of things to do while Jim was here, because neither of them likes to just sit around and talk; they enjoy projects of any kind to keep their hands busy.

I reaped some big benefits too, apart from enjoying five-year-old Lyndsay (soon to be six).  Jim transferred all the pictures and music from my old hard drive, on the computer that died, to this computer.  So I now have all my "stuff".  I'm going to make a project of putting my pictures on CDs, so that no matter what happens, I'll have them.  Although now that I've seen how easy it is to move them from one to the other, I guess I shouldn't worry about it.  A computer crash isn't necessarily fatal, after all.

I'm sixty-two today, and my birthday present from Cliff will be a trip to Colorado!  I'm excited, of course.  I'm not positive when we'll leave, but now that I have a laptop, if we're in a motel with Internet access, I can keep you all posted.  If it were up to me, we'll leave in the morning, but that's probably a bit soon.  I need to straighten things up around here before we go.  We'll take Sadie to be boarded at the vet's, and be on our way.

Happy Birthday to You! Hope you can soon go on your trip. That is a really nice Birthday present. That is great that your son got your things transfered from one computer to the other one. You will enjoy taking your laptop with you on your trip. And of course your camera so you can download lots of pictures to share with us. Hope you have a safe and happy trip. Helen

Happy Birthday, Mo!  I spent the day with my sis (the one who had brain aneurysm) who shares your birth day and month, but the little squirt is only a great big 49 today.  I just know you'll love getting out to CO.  Hope temps are favorable.  Will keep you in travel prayers.  Sounds like everyone raked in something from Jim's visit.  Later...Boo

Happy Birthday!!.. and can I go with you to Colorado..pahleeeze?!!

oh.. please do put your pics on cs Mosie.. you are right that all crashes might not be fatal but some are! and it takes so little to put them on cd.  I back up everything on my computer about once every 2 months.. it really doesn't take that long. and I'll tell you what.. when I got this new computer, it was very simple to replace all that i had to this one.. and i didn't have to pay someone to do it.

Oh boy.  Happy Birthday and I'm looking forward to "going with you" via laptop on your trip.  Don't forget the camera.  I have never been to Colorado and have always wanted to go.

Mosie, all day long yesterday, I kept thinking I knew someone with a birthday on July 7th and could not, for the life of me, recall who it was.  So, it was you, a Happy Birthday belatedly!  I hope this year will bring you more of God's wonderful blessings and that you will experience the best year of your life, if that's possible.  From your journal, I don't think you've missed much.  Love,Sam.

We were in colorado a few years back.  I loved steamboat springs and we swam in a natural hot spring in the woods ( they swim winter and summer). It was great. Its a ski area that is named after the springs in town that bubble up.
