We're into our 3rd month

Hi there everyone,

Sorry it has been so long since I last updated the blog. There has been a lot going on recently. I've been working diligently on my book 'Campin and Computin'. Well, this first book is finished. I'm hoping to have my proof copy sent to me later next week so that I can review it. That is the primary reason it has been so long since I last updated the blog.

A week ago, Carol attended a conference on Medical Transcription. The market for transcriptionists is not as good as we would have hoped. It sounds like voice recognition is starting to be looked at more seriously by medical providers. But, we are still hopeful Carol will be able to find a job once she is done with her training. If nothing else, she has helped her 'Office skills' immensely. She is a much faster typist than she has been prior to her training starting.

A month or so ago, we attended a surprise 50th birthday party for Loretta, Billies wife. It was a great evening. Most of you know how concerned Loretta is about the appearance of her home. It looked great while everyone was their awaiting for the guest of honor to arrive.

This weekend, we attended a 65th Birthday party for Carols sister Sandy. It too was a surprise to the celebrant. There was a huge turn out for Sandy's birthday dinner at the St. George hotel in Volcano. Everyone would love to send their sincerest thanks to Bill Ealy and Patty Amoral for treating everyone to an excellent dinner.

Carol and I are hoping to get together with Karen and Mike for the Easter weekend.

We are doing great living in the 5th wheel. We have been living in it for 2 and a half months. The dogs, cats and our selves are getting along as well if not better than we did when we lived in the 'Stick and Brick' house. Roxy, our Austrailian shepperd was diagnosed with an in-operable tumor at the base of her stomach where it empties into the Large intestine back in September of 2008. We continue to blend her food to help in the digestion process and she seems to be doing great. She still is very active and likes to do her 'Twist and Shout' every morning when I get up. In actualily, since we have started to blend her food, she hasn't shown any signs of discomfort asside from her arthritic knees. All in all, she is doing great and seems very happy! :-)

Well, I guess that is about all for now. Take care! Happy Camping! - Eric-
