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.
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.
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 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.
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. http://cheezburger.com/8035287808
