The Family Moves to the Lake


Sorry that I have not been blogging so much lately.  For the past few weeks we have been spending a lot of time at our campsite at the lake.  We have really been enjoying our time there.


Allie loves it!  She explores the ‘jungle’, watching squirrels and birds and chipmunks.  It is a constantly moving cat toy.






The Bearded One seems to be thriving there too.  Perhaps because there is no cable, he is puttering about the site.

We are enjoying it enough, that we have decided to basically make the lake our base of operations (read, Home) for the summer.  We will still go home each day for supplies and to maintain the house and gardens, but basically spend most of our time here.  We have had campfires some evenings (when it is not too hot) and we sit and enjoy the peacefulness of the place.

So, it is more of a challenge to blog.  I am writing this on my laptop using WORD but will take it home today to transfer to the blog since there is not internet access at the lake.  I will try to keep you abreast of our activities but forgive me if it is less frequent than in the past.

ANYWAY, since we have made the move, we decided that VeeGee should move to the lake also.

As you remember, VeeGee is our adopted stray calico cat who is MUCH more skittish than Allie (not that Allie is skittish about anything except shots at the Vet).  The last time we tried to get VeeGee into the cat carrier she hissed and ran and hid and hissed some more.  We gave up.

But, since we have been spending most of our time at the lake, VeeGee has been alone at the house.  Each day when we return she greets us at the door and begs to be petted.  She follows us around the house, throwing herself on the floor at our feet wanting more petting.

Yesterday, we decided to move VeeGee to the lake.  She must have been REALLY lonely because she made it into the cat carrier without hissing.  She did cry the whole trip (just 5 minutes) but quickly settled into trailer life.

Now, we are all here.  VeeGee will spend an occasional night or two at the trailer without us but much less time alone than before.

Life is good.
