Look for a copy of The Crowded Camper Goes to Little Rock, by our very own mutant-author. As newbies, she & her DH made quite a few blunders, & realized they were no longer newbies when they spotted other folks either doing or about to do some of the same things. It's a well-written humorous account, highly recommended.

Cheers!

And now for something completely different...

Carol and I celebrated 22 years of wedded bliss yesterday (of course we practiced for a bit before that). I didn't get on the forum to mention it yesterday because I spent the day with her.

You wouldn't know about his shorts, you had your back to us!

Lesson learned; Don't trust mutants standing behind you!
