It is. Very relaxing. We bring canoes and kayaks. And usually have a jigsaw puzzle going.

I looked it up and it sure is large! Very beautiful and lots of recreational opportunities. Sounds like a lovely place for a get together. Does anyone bring a boat?

By rbj on Jun 4, 2014 at 3:34 PM

It's Lake Gaston, which sits between Virginia & NC. Used to be a river, but then (1950s I think) they decided to dam it and create a lake for recreation. It gets my parents, sisters, their families and their kids families together once a year. You sound like you've got a busy summer.

Mornin. Oh that sounds like fun. Kind of like a reunion? Which lake? In Jun we're taking the RV going down to spend a few days at Yosemite as neither of us have ever been there. Then to Vegas for a couple of days and last up to Kanab UT to volunteeer for 3 days at the Best Freind Animal Sanctuary in the cat houses. In Aug we're going to a reggae musi festival on Eeel River, CA and then from there to sons half brother's wedding. I havent been to a wedding in ages so should be fun. Camping aroubd here with the gkids inbetween.

Have a conference in San Antonio in July, then it's family lake week in August. You?

Thanks! That is so sweet to get an Invisible FP! Duh, I had forgotten about Sparky having only 3 legs. He is so fortunate to have you as a Dad. ANy vacations planned for the summer?

By rbj on Jun 2, 2014 at 7:20 AM

LOLcats congrats. If only we could know what's going on in our pets' minds. Or maybe we don't want to know.

My refi was done through the mail, so it wasn't too bad. Done with the company I already had the mortgage with. Sparky was born with three legs, and when he was nine months old had surgery to put a steel rod in his one front leg. After about thirteen years of that leg taking all the weight when jumping down, it's now arthritic. I have to carry him up & down stairs. It used to be that when there was a thunderstorm, he'd run downstairs and find a quiet spot. But now he just stresses and pants on the bed. So I don't get any sleep either.

So like a good human you stayed up with Sparky. Problems with his legs? Ugggh, refinancing paperwork is the pits. We did that last year on the hous son and gkids lives in. Longest process ever due to the stoopy mortgage company.

By rbj on May 21, 2014 at 11:50 AM

Yeah, we had a nasty thunderstorm late last night. Only got a couple of hours of sleep last night as Sparky doesn't care for such storms but can't go down stairs anymore. And had to complete the refinancing on my mortgage this morning. Left work early and hit the couch.

Thanks! It was been a wilde weather ride this Winter and Spring and Summer doesn't promise to be much better what with heat and persistent drought in the West and fire danger.

By rbj on May 21, 2014 at 6:34 AM

AC FP congrats. No more winter! Still getting over the worst one I've ever experienced.

By Sylviag on May 15, 2014 at 10:07 PM

Don't forgt to send the cute Asplorer kittehs to KSO as I have a collection for them s pat of the Skool Asplore Klub.

By Sylviag on May 13, 2014 at 9:40 AM

Thanks bunches! Pretty thrilled to get a Main ICHC FP!

By rbj on May 13, 2014 at 7:43 AM

Goaty FP congrats!

By rbj on Mar 30, 2014 at 12:01 PM

Thanks. So do I. Seems like everyone is enjoying Swamp Lake. Well, except for poor Ms Actsowt.

By Sylviag on Mar 30, 2014 at 11:12 AM

OMG rbj - KKPS Swamp Lake Hot Dog congrats! Very cool! I absolutely love it when one of our KSO themed LOLs make FP.

By Sylviag on Mar 25, 2014 at 9:26 AM

Thanks for your concern We had no friends or family in that area thank goodness. Even when we lived in WA, we were well south of that area. Too much rain combined with a lot of mountains and hills leads to a lot of mudlides in the winter. I so hope they have seriously undercounted the missing. Such a force of nature tragedy.

By rbj on Mar 25, 2014 at 9:22 AM

Hope no one you know got caught in that mudslide. Horrible thing.

By Sylviag on Mar 18, 2014 at 10:31 PM

LOLCat congrats! Can't get anywhere trying to intimidate someone up with a clover leaf for sure!

By Sylviag on Feb 3, 2014 at 6:08 PM

Congrats on LOLCat crossover to ICHC Main FP!

By Sylviag on Feb 3, 2014 at 5:29 PM

Belated LOLCat congrats! And thanks for your congrats - a black kitteh - gives me a happy! Between the gkids spending the weekend and Super Duper Bowl, am behind once again. Did catch some of the Hallmark Kitteh Bowl when they reran it later last night. So darn cyooot! We were at a party for the bowl and it got pretty wild once it was clear there was no way the Boncos could win unless they got a TD a minute :) Love your Seahawks LOL. Am trying to catch them all wherever I see them.

By rbj on Feb 3, 2014 at 11:55 AM

Congrats on the kitteh FP and to the Seahawks

By Sylviag on Jan 21, 2014 at 7:23 PM

Hallmark Channel will feature the "Kitteh Bow" starting this Sun. Just saw a commercial for it.

By Sylviag on Jan 19, 2014 at 7:42 PM

Yeah where the SB is played is always fraught with sports politics and whatever. Wish it was on the West Coast but at least no one has home turf :)

By rbj on Jan 19, 2014 at 6:56 PM

Woo hoo, Western Superbowl. . . Played in New York.

By Sylviag on Jan 19, 2014 at 6:52 PM

SUPER BOWL!!!! I so wanted another chance for us to go. It's been a long haul.

By rbj on Jan 19, 2014 at 6:50 PM

Um, defense? Er, there it is!

By rbj on Jan 19, 2014 at 6:42 PM

right there with you on going for it on 4th. And that knee injury, I'm flashing back to Joe Theisman. Ugly.

By Sylviag on Jan 19, 2014 at 6:28 PM

Bad call by the refs so I'm OK with the karma of us losing the ball. But understand going on 4th, FG not do us any good if 49rs got a TD.
