Thanks to Joyce E. McCollum from Florida for her comment that she took me up on, the Blog suggestion of making a graph for her User ID/Password accounts. It certainly has cut down on my frustration (at least a little bit!).
My 24-year-old granddaughter, Becca, a WWU grad, visited me for two weeks a year ago this October. We ambushed the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and Jerome, among other places, and had a fun time. She left this week for Lima, Peru, for an exceedingly more far-reaching adventure as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Becca and her group moved on to Chaclacayo to a training center and at last blog, they were meeting their host families. It is my understanding that she will receive training for the next three months (all in Spanish) before being assigned to a village.
We always hope that each generation will have more exciting adventures and will be more helpful to the world in the grand scheme of life than we were. I pray for her good health and safety above all but hope this journey will lead her to explorations beyond her wildest dreams. E.T., here she comes!
The Monsoon Season and its wonderful rains is nearly over in Arizona and the weather is cooling to the point where it takes a minute to fry an egg on the sidewalk instead of a couple of seconds. The pool that I enjoyed thoroughly exercising in all summer is about to be transferred to a new owner. I loved it but if I am here in the summer again, I will get a smaller than 12’ in diameter but deeper one and this time make sure it is level and that I have a proper cover for it rather than a tarp. I did learn a lot. It was quite different than the big family pool our kids grew up with but almost as much work. God Bless until next week
Winter in the Wilderness, the first e-book novel published by Minshall, and the fourth edition of RVing Alaska and Canada are available through Amazon.com.
At 45, Widow Minshall began 20 years of solo full-time RVing throughout Alaska, Mexico, and Canada. Sharlene canoed the Yukon, mushed sled dogs, worked a dude ranch, visited Hudson Bay polar bears, and lived six months on a Mexican beach. She lectured at Life on Wheels, published six RV-related books and wrote a novel, “Winter in the Wilderness.”
