Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

White River Campground, Hamilton County, Indiana.
We enjoyed the three C's this weekend. Hot Cider, Conversation,and a big honkin' Campfire during our Winnebago-Itasca Club outing near Cicero, Indiana, ten miles north of Noblesville. We love this park, and have been here several times with the group. Sites line the White River which is lined with trees, now starting to turn into their autumn colors. Weather was perfect... blue skied,sunny days, and a crisp air, all weekend. Friday night supper was chili and pb&j. Saturday was the all time favorite, pot-luck carry-in. Conner's Prairie was just south of us, so 24 of the RV'ers got the group rate to tour the living museum. We all enjoyed interacting with the interpreters and learned a lot about Indiana during the 1836-1886 time frame. The loom house fascinated us the most. The lady was dying lamb's wool, she had spun, in goldenrod plants pulled from her own garden. She added tin salts to hot water and the yarn transformed to a soft yellow. Alum, copper salts, and iron salts all create different hues of yellows, browns and greens. Indigo is used for blue, and a flower seed (can't remember the darn name of it now) makes red. We stopped at the apple house for hot cider and White Castle for a couple of sliders, he-hee, on the way back to camp. By 12:30 Sunday afternoon, most of the folks had headed home. We headed west, beginning our trip towards Colorado.
