27 May

Whew! We have survived our first big holiday of the summer and it was wonderful. 36 of 42 sites were full. We had a great group in from the Pueblo area. We had rain, sun, wind, calm, cold, warm, more wind, more rain, snow up a little higher, more sun, etc… And you know what? It didn’t put a damper on the weekend. All the campers had their outings and gatherings and seemed to have a great time. Denny and Dale put on a great pancake feed for the group yesterday morning. I can’t tell you what a big help Dale has been to us. It has been wonderful having him here.
I also began my fundraiser for Friends of Namakkal by displaying my Camping Quilt and started the raffle on Sunday. Great response all ready. I will be taking donations until Aug 4 and then will take the money to Denver during the Swinging for AIDS Golf tournament. Speaking of AIDS. I watched a wonderful movie last night about the early years when the AIDS virus was just beginning. It’s called the “The Normal Heart”. It’s a tear jerker, but you can see how far the medical community has come dealing with that virus.
Another new endeavor we are doing is making and selling ice. Who knew how popular that was this weekend. I couldn’t keep up. Now I’m trying to make a bunch of bags to keep up with the demand. It’s a great little machine. Makes 50 pounds a day. Newair brand.
We had a great bonfire on Sunday night and everyone had fun roasting marshmallows. There’s a photo of the quilt. Also another Baby Camper update. It continues to evolve into a very cute camper.

Tomorrow I’m going to be posting updated photos of the children that many of you have helped support over the years since my trip to India. It’s very rewarding to see how well they our doing.
Time to get back to work.
