Very sad today; my computer screen has a crack in it. It has the mark of a paint spot in the middle of the screen with little legs shooting out from it. It is under warranty, but it means I can't get it fixed until we are home and then it has to be sent out. Supposedly I can still use it, but if the spots get bigger then I have to stop. I will blog as long as I can. :-(

The most beautiful quilt shop just down the road from our campground. It's called the Meetinghouse Quilt Shop. It's an old church that sat empty for a long time until the owner and her family purchased it two years ago and did an amazing job fixing it up. They used the original oak pews as shelves and the original chandeliers are also being used.

Well, after four days and four nights of solid rain (the last of hurricane Lee) we moved on to Connecticut. We were not sure we could leave as there were numerous counties in New York under a state of emergency with roads closed, etc. I guess we chose the right roads because we made it. Some campgrounds were still under water. It is beautiful now with a seven day forecast of sun, in the 70's.

It is amazing what a little retail therapy, sightseeing, cooler weather and Aleve do for a person. I found a quilt shop, G purchased some excellent dark beer and K has had a lot of green fields to chase his ball. Last night we were in Winterset, Iowa, John Wayne's birthplace (did you know he weighed 13 lbs. at birth?). It is also where the "Bridges of Madison County" was filmed.

IT'S HOT!!!!! It's been 100+ degrees since we left. Not much to take a picture of yet. Everything is brown and the sky is hazy. Temps are supposed to lower this weekend, but hurricane Irene is headed for the east coast. We may have to hold up somewhere......somewhere with a pool!!!
