So I will combine Thursday and Friday now into one blog. I am writing this as we are heading back up to the house in Oconto. While on the road, our Galaxy Tablet is a router and pulls in the signal as we are driving. I have my laptop set up to type on with an adorable little pull out desk by my passenger seat. Safari sure had good ideas when they made this rig in 1996!

Well, it's Friday and our little vacation is over and time to head back to the final steps of clearing out the house before it sells. Just got a few more things to do, plus we have some company coming to visit us on Monday (Jim and Norma of http://www.paandmasrugs.com ) They are stopping by on their way up to Canada for a second honeymoon! Jim just retired and they are going to be weaving their rugs full time now.
As it was, we extended our stay at High Cliff for just one more day. Yesterday was the hottest day of the week so far, and driving back mid-afternoon just didn't set too well with either of us. Nor the dogs! They voted to stay one more day too!
While we have been trapped inside during the hottest parts of the day with the AC going full blast, I have been working.... cranking socks to build up my inventory for the upcoming fall and winter shoppers in my online Etsy store:

This is my antique1925 Gearhart sockknitting machine
It cooled down a little in the evening, enough to cook supper out over the campfire--- (Alaskan salmon and sweet corn) Add in a salad and a bottle of wine, and we were all set for "Fine Dining- High Cliff Style" !!!
In the evening, we sat outside for a while and actually had an electric fan blowing on us out in our lawn chairs! LOL We did a little walk around the park, but it was too hot for the dogs, so we just walked by ourselves. Awwww hand-in-hand -- with no leashes or doggie pooper scooper pick-up bags!
I snapped a pic of this rig this morning before we left... it pulled in yesterday next to us! What a beauty!!! It's a GMC motorhome! I think he said it was a 1973, they were only made from 73 to 78 and were a unique vehicle wayyyy before their time! This one was in very good shape. The owner just bought it last year after someone had it stored for 10 years inside. He said it's taken a while to get out the troubles that come from storing it for such a long time, but have most items up and running now. (especially the air conditioner!) They took it for a few short jaunts last year, each time ending in a breakdown of some sort. This is the first outing for this year and it's "so far, so good"!
As I type this, we are almost back to Oconto, the temps are 91 out there right now. Hope it's cooler by the bay?
